A sneak peek

Against my better judgement, I'm posting up an outtake from today's photo shoot for the world's worst holiday card. Sadly, today was a frikkin' zoo (I can't even get into it but involved some calls to LA, some editing over the phone and lots and lots and lots of praying) or I would have taken more time to do up my hair and we probably would have both gone for some sort of slacks or something equally John Mark Karr-like.

Sadly, as fun as this picture may be, there was no way to crop it without my torn-up jeans being in it. We needed one of those big fuzzy things they make you pose on at like Olan Mills but, man, are those things hard to find!

But how 'bout them sweaters, huh? Ladie's extra-larges, in case you're wondering. And yes, that is the most cheesy, vacant smile I could possibly muster. Frankly, looking at it now on screen, I'm a little freaked out myself.

But the shot we ended up going with makes this one look almost normal by comparison. Trust me.

and to look more like john mark carr, you would have needed to add eyeliner and blush.

Minus,

Thanks for being the only one to comment on the pic. I'm thoroughly amazed it's not getting more play. I'm gonna pull it by night's end if I don't hear something.

But yes, the Mark-Karr look is not an easy one to pull off. I mean, without make-up and creepy dead-eye stare.

Where's the dog?

Securing a fluffy white dog is not as easy as it seems. Especially to bring into an office like ours. They're decidedly pet-unfriendly.

But yes, (and this will sound totally un-PC but I assure you it's not) this was the gayest shot we took. Adorable, isn't it?
