My New Face On Facebook

I absolutely, positively loathe pictures of myself. When I have to use one, I have generally gone for something old and taken with my laptop, like this:

This photo has been my profile picture on Facebook since I signed up, and the other day I realized that it was like 4 years old, so I decided it was time for a little bit more honesty. I still took the new color photo with my laptop (oh, what did we do before Photo Booth?) and this was the only one I could stand. I'm still squirming as I post the thing, and I am still wondering why my lip gloss looks so pink. Please tell me it's the lighting. I chose this one because it shows my (old) new bangs (I've had them for over a year now), and is in color, so the wrinkles are not so cleverly concealed. I figured it was finally time to say "Hey look, I'm 40. Get over it."

Of course I'm only saying it to myself, and, who knows, maybe someday I'll actually start listening.

I think you look great! I know you don't know me, but I have known Steve for a long time. He is good friends with my brother, John. They grew up together.

Again, I think the picture is super.
