Ridiculous Me

I'm pretty sure that I've forgotten how to look "normal" in a photo.

I came to this conclusion as I was scouring Facebook for a photo to use as a head shot, which will be included in a directory at a work conference that I'm going to July. (Btw, I'm actually pretty excited about this conference. It's going to be in Portland, OR and flippin' love Portland.)

As I was going through my photos, I could not for the life of me, find a single one that said "young professional". On the contrary, it seemed like they all said "this girl might is crazy".

When I see a camera, my introverted-ness must fly out the window, because things like this happen:

After much consideration, I ended up sending this photo:

It's pretty obviously a vanity shot that says "I'm standing alone in my bathroom taking pictures of myself". But, it's certainly much better than my sampling of "I'm puckering my lips and flashing the peace sign because I'm a white girl who thinks she's ghetto-fab" photos.

Did I made the right choice?

SO jealous, I want to go to Portland. We spend a ridiculous amount of time watching the food network and there is this amazing doughnut shop in Portland called Voodoo Doughnut. You have to find it and go...I would ask you to bring me back a doughnut, but I don't think it would taste as good once it got here :(
