After trying to sleep in this morning, I put on some pants (bahahaha Four Postmen joke) and walked just over a mile to my local voting location. Several minutes of inking the arrows later, I fed my ballots into the machine that goes ping -- actually more like a quick double beep -- and got a shiny sticker that I cheerfully showed at both stops on the walk home.

While I ponder whether I like Sonic's raspberry limeade, you can giggle at my self-portraiture skills.

The text around the perimeter of the sticker reads "I made freedom count in Denton County, TX".

And for those of you who want just the facts rack, ma'am:

...and yes, I went to vote in a LiveJournal tee.

You TOTALLY get a cookie for posting a self portrait in an LJ tee AND an I voted sticker! GET ON WIT'CHER BAD VOTER SELF!
Nov. 12th, 2005 09:29 pm (UTC)
Yay cookie! What kind? *drools*

I'm still working on my self-portrait skills. It's easier to let Vogon take photos -- or Laurel, but she's still working on taking pictures with my face in them instead of focusing on my shirt artwork. (:

they probably thought you worked for LJ.
Nov. 12th, 2005 09:26 pm (UTC)
I think that'd be more believable if I had been wearing an LJ polo shirt.

They were probably just confused by my "I voted" sticker, since the election had 17% voter turnout statewide and 15% turnout in the county where I voted.

good job on voting ~ too few people do, so no wonder that shit that goes on, does.
Nov. 8th, 2005 09:09 pm (UTC)
Your just too damned cute for your own good! ;)
Nov. 8th, 2005 09:16 pm (UTC)
You are so cute!!
Nov. 8th, 2005 09:26 pm (UTC)
Yer a doll.

Now, have yer LJ name stenciled on the back and see if that brings a response.

And, dang--are your fingers LONG!

It'd be weird to be addressed face-to-face by my username after someone read it off my shirt, though it wouldn't be any weirder than several people all saying "yes?" when a professor would call on someone with a common first name (like mine) in class.

It's usually fun to wear my LJ tee out because at least a few people will nod or smirk knowingly. No one's asked my username after seeing it that didn't already know me or have a friend of a friend in common.

I didn't realize I had long fingers until I went shopping for nice winter gloves a few years ago and was confounded that most pairs were too short in the fingers -- the finger-crotches were too low and I'm not a gangsta. I finally found a pair of suede gloves that fit nicely, but none of the local cleaners I've enquired at clean gloves, so it looks like I'll be replacing them rather than getting them cleaned. Oh well.

Consider piano.

Or, proctology. :)
Nov. 29th, 2005 05:04 am (UTC)
I've played piano since I was a little burrito. My folks started us early to get the most benefit from music lessons.

Proctology... well, I'd rather be a pharmacist. With major chains now allowing pharmacists to refuse to dispense prescription contraceptives on moral grounds, it might be in my best interest to acquire the appropriate education and licensing to become a pharmacist that doesn't have that moral aversion. I've seriously thought about studying midwifery, but I'm more interested in general women's health, y'know?

Merely finding a USE for those long fingers, lovie!

Nov. 8th, 2005 09:35 pm (UTC)
yay! return of the pornstar boobies! go voting!
Nov. 8th, 2005 09:49 pm (UTC)
yay for demure boobies!
Nov. 8th, 2005 09:51 pm (UTC)
y'know, she needs to make a whole voting photoshoot. *nodnod*
Nov. 9th, 2005 03:38 am (UTC)
Yeah voting, that's what we want, heheheh.
Nov. 9th, 2005 03:40 am (UTC)
Oops, that "anonymous" entry was me, I got logged out when I wasn't looking.
Nov. 9th, 2005 07:28 am (UTC)
's okay.

You should see her filibuster
Nov. 12th, 2005 09:04 pm (UTC)
Requests for photos of me modeling any of the pieces from my Frederick's clearance haul must be filed in triplicate... so I can poop on it! Sorry, had a little Triumph moment there.

Seriously, I'll write myself a post-it note and see if Vogon's up for lacing/fastening up one of the bustiers from the aforementioned haul and photographing it so I can have a filibuster picture. d:
Nov. 13th, 2005 01:27 am (UTC)
wow. If you put a horsie on it, you'll have a filly bustier.

Y'know, you don't really need the bustier for the photoshoots. *innocent whistling*
Nov. 8th, 2005 09:49 pm (UTC)
Adorable as always and my apologies for not being more LJ attentive!
More pix of you please!
Nov. 8th, 2005 10:02 pm (UTC)
I love your smile. I need to pick up one of those LJ shirts.
Nov. 12th, 2005 09:30 pm (UTC)

The babydoll shirts are in the LJ Gift Shop: http://www.livejournal.com/shop/view.bml?item=babydolltshirt
Nov. 8th, 2005 10:07 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! Nice rack! :P
Nov. 8th, 2005 11:42 pm (UTC)
I wish I had that style of LJ shirt.

Yay for voting!
Nov. 9th, 2005 12:04 am (UTC)
I love it when you post pics. You're the cutest!
Nov. 9th, 2005 01:27 am (UTC)
Just to let you know, I left this post up all day.

Your smile popping up as I switched tasks and rotated through tabs kept brightening my day.

Nov. 9th, 2005 07:04 am (UTC)
oh my gosh you so cute! i love your voting sticker
Nov. 9th, 2005 10:00 pm (UTC)
aww glad to see that despite the sicknesses your still looking good.
Nov. 11th, 2005 09:55 am (UTC)
Long time no see
Yes, it was a long time since ESHS, I wish I had a chance to get to know you better but you disappeared in 96 so didnt get to meet you much.
Nov. 29th, 2005 05:09 am (UTC)
Re: Long time no see
I switched schools in 1996. Drop me an e-mail (oddharmonic at livejournal.com) if you want the Book-A-Minute version of what led to that and the adventures -- and misadventures -- I've had since then.

Mein erste gedanke war zu fragen "fuer wer hast du gewaehlen?" aber bei zweite gedacht, es war nicht ein richtig frage. Wann sie english schreiben mit deutsche werten, es kommt raus so wie diese.

Schoene bilder. Ich mag die geb du hast mit die zweite bilder gemacht. Und die idee "filibustier" ist auch komische, aber glaub ich du konst diese geb richtig heiss machen.

Danke fuer die bilder!
Nov. 14th, 2005 10:51 am (UTC)
And your fingers are not long. For the record.
Nov. 29th, 2005 05:05 am (UTC)
I've mostly forgotten my year of college German. Mock at will.

(But I'd like it more if it involves lashing with wet noodles. Mmm, soba...)
