18.Dec.2011 Happy Holidays
We had our photoshoot for our anual holiday card and, really, all I can say is that I am really disappointed with my photographer/girl this year. The lighting and locations were all wrong, my costuming was terrible, and really my girl is lucky that I didn’t walk out on the whole thing. Nonetheless, Salem and I do want to extend our holiday greetings to you in digital card form:
This is not the image I personally felt should have been used for our card. Clearly this is not a particularly flattering photo of my ample head which, in reality, I highly doubt is as large as Salem’s entire body. Here is the picture that I think we should have used on our holiday card:
My girl said that the focus isn’t right in this photo though. I think that technical photographic quality is, in this instance, outweighed by my gorgeous smile.
Perhaps the most disappointing thing about this photoshoot was the props. Would you believe that this pie isn’t even actually pie!? What kind of sick joke is that? I tried eating it several times, it and continued to fail to become pie.
The good news is that I swear I overheard my girl talking about iPads today on our trail ride! To be honest, I wasn’t completely listening… I had already missed the opportunity to jump the creekbed because I had gotten too distracted with my girl’s conversations, so I really couldn’t afford to risk missing anything else by listening too hard. But I am pretty sure someone said something about iPads and, honestly, I can only really imagine one possible conclusion as to why anyone would ever be talking about an iPad: it must be a present for me!
Since I know that everyone is now rushing to find pleasing presents for me for my First Annual 29th Birthday Party ™, I’ve decided to make everyone’s lives significantly easier by making a registry. I try to be as accommodating as possible — it’s simply my nature.
