Don't look.. I'm hideous!

Inspired as I was by the lovely Miss Bloom's foray into pop art inspired cartoonery, I thought it wise to show my own efforts in contorting the public image of myself:

That's right, read it and weep suckers. The story behind this frankensteinal monstrosity was that I was attempting to demonstrate to my friend Leah the intricacies of a particular outfit I had planned for a friend's engagement party. What's that? Well yes, OF COURSE it was during work hours, as if I would have bothered otherwise?

Anyway, I suppose it had the desired effect. She immediately printed it out onto A3 paper and stuck it up in her team's shared cubicle space, thereby turning it into their unofficial mascot. For all I know my poor characture is currently sporting 3 cheap plastic darts sticking out of his obliviously smiling cranium.

Everything happens for a reason I guess.

O Trailers Blog - - teve a ideia de eleger o melhor filme de sempre (desde 1895 a 2007), por isso seleccionou 22 filmes para ir em votação. Não seleccionou sem mais nem mais nem menos foram seleccionados, escolhemos os filmes mais conceituados (ou famosos) de cada década. O inquérito está na coluna do lado esquerdo do blog.

The Trailers Blog - -had an idea to make a voting to the best forever movie, so we selected 22 movies ( from 1895 to 2007) to vote. We don't not select without to think, we select the appraised movies (for other words, the famous) of each decade. The web poll is in the left side column from this blog.

Er, is that a cyber Ned Kelly creeping up behind you?

Also, did you REALLY wear that, um, outfit?
From your Eiffel pic, green sneakers with blue shirt (and socks?!), I suspect this may be the case.

Dude, no wonder you're asking for sock advice...

Eleanor, Eleanor, Eleanor... SOOO much to learn. Don't worry, we still have time!

Yes, of course I wore that outfit, and was the belle of the ball no less. As for the shoes, I seem to have developed a penchant for green shoes. Yeh, I dunno. Green.
