Total Dork - That's Me!
Ok - hands up everyone who thinks the picture I used for my Ravelry avatar is really dorky.
Seriously! It was the only recent picture of myself I could find. Hubbs said I should just use an older photo but in my brain I thought that would be like false advertising. You know, because I used to be younger, and skinnier and had shorter hair. :) And if I used a really old photo of myself - pre-kids - then I would look well rested too.
But I don't really look like the avatar picture either. I was knitting when Hubbs took the picture I used, so I was wearing my reading/knitting glasses. I don't usually wear glasses. Not that there's anything wrong with glasses or anything, I kinda like mine, but I don't usually wear them.
Plus I think I just look like a big dork. I totally am a dork, I wish I didn't look like one. :) It's probably the big cheesy smile. Doesn't everyone complain about the way they look when they smile?
Anyhoo...I'm thinking about changing my avatar for the above reasons and using the little picture of Anastasia knitting that is in my blog banner. I think most people who read this blog would identify me on Ravelry more easily that way.
Plus it kind of wiggs me out when I am cruising around Ravelry looking at patterns or something and all of a sudden - eeeeekkkk! - there's my own big smiley head lookin' right at me. For some reason I find that to be....not creepy exactly, just unsettling I guess. I don't like running into myself when I'm not expecting it. ;)
Ok - I know you are all rolling your eyes at what a weirdo I am - but if you didn't already have that figured out then I don't know what to tell you! ;)
So feel free to tell me if you think the picture is dorky and if I should change it to my banner picture.
