Photo Request [Oct. 13th, 2010|01:55 pm]

[mood |soresore]

Been having a rough time, recently. The trips to Cooma are tiring - the work there, the packing here, doing all the loading and unloading on my own, and so on. But the spending of so much time away from my kids seems to be seriously hitting my depression buttons.

I think the clearest sign of this is the fact that, while rewatching season 4 of the 2005 Doctor Who, almost every episode has made me cry. Hell I rewatched Voyage of the Damned and that made me cry every time someone died!

On top of that, we're seriously talking about the need to have Kal put down. He's healthy enough physically but his mental deterioration is getting worse. He's become so skittish and jumpy about everything, and in the last few years has started to be very angry and bitey every time he's handled. So he doesn't seem to be terribly happy, and there's the constant concern that he'll bite Lex. And in actual fact, I don't mind if he does bite Lex, if Lex is mishandling him or anything, but I don't necessarily trust it to be a single nip, given his current demeanour.

So there's the serious consideration to making one of the first acts of moving into our new house putting my dog down.

And today I had a tooth removed. They didn't have to saw the jaw this time, but they did have to cut my gum a bit. So I'm very sore and headachey.

So, the request...

Can I have a photo, please?

I was going to make this request on my birthday but things got so busy it didn't happen. I'm blessed to have wonderful friends, I love my friends, and love seeing them, and in the absence of face to face visits and such, a photo is the next best thing. I'd SMSed someone asking for a picture, then thought stuff it, I'd throw it open.

Would prefer recent, but old shots are fine. Happy snaps, arty shots, silly, serious, something taken quickly with a phone camera, anything will do.

If we don't know each other terribly well, but you're tempted to send a piccie, go for it. And i know some of my family read my LJ, so you can send a piccie or two, too :)

Photos can be sent to my email, or to here. I've screened comments here, and will only unscreen a photo if you specifically say I can.

I won't promise to reply to everyone, because I'm so stupidly busy. But rest assured, your photo will be appreciated. Thank you.

And now, I think a little nap is in order...

We're planning on taking Kal to the vet to see what options there are, so hopefully there will be some sort of mood stabilisers or something that will help. He's 15, so he's had a good run (his dad made it to 20), I just hate the idea of putting down an otherwise healthy dog.

Cue juvenile pussy joke!

Prefer you, but your cat will do if you're shy. I did see the grumpy looking shot of your cat earlier, btw.

How to use HTML to add pictures to comments is down the bottom of the page. Hope that helps - it's how I learned to put piccies in LJ :)

Well, I've already seen you looking awesome, so a daggy shot adds some balance :)

Plus the story is a great one.

I have a wallpaper program that changes my background every day, and thousands of pictures, all fairly carefully chosen because I like them, or they move me in some way. I did a post a few years back with selections of some of my favs. There were a handful of posts after this one, which you can find if you serach on the picture tag.

Though I have to go back and re-link some of the pics - silly image shack!

Photobucket

Can be unscreened, which hopefully encourages others to post nude shots as well. :D

This is currently my favourite picture of me, taken a couple of years ago when my dreads were babydreads and I looked like a Fraggle:

Fraggle hair again some more

This is the most recent shot I could find with my face in it; taken at the end of February when I went to the Adelaide Festival and bought a new hat:

New hat!

You can unscreen this if you want, they're both public photos on Flickr anyway:)

Hope your mouth feels better soon. I don't know what to say about Kal, but I hope that works out the best it can for you as well.

Both great shots, but love the second one. Is that a Barmah hat?

Yes! A Barmah Foldaway Bronco, X Large. To be precise:)

I have two, Sharon has two, and I'm about to order Lex his first because they do them in kid sizes, too :)

It's an excellent hat:) I was sad my camouflage-print faux snakeskin cowboy hat with skull & crossbones band had to be replaced, though. My hairs got fat and none of my hats fit any more:(

I've had my hair on a weight-loss plan, and it's thinning nicely :)

Have to say, this is where the request for pics has paid off - I always remember you as being attractive, but can't see it in my head, so getting two shots that remind me of how beautiful you are is an awesome gift.

And the best thing? I also know what evil works underneath. I still have the ransom note from when you kidnapped Flopsy.

An interesting bridge to ride through...

...Do try to keep a straight line through here (for the record I, ah, didn't quite manage it). (Again feel free to unscreen).
