Matisse himself couldn't have done any better

So last week I got some headshots taken. I didn’t have a specific need for them (it’s probably too late for a career as a Victoria’s Secret model, not to mention the cost of the extensive plastic surgery I would need to qualify!), but the timing was good and the price was right so I figured, why the hell not?

I picked out a few I liked and asked the photographer to play with them (fix them, as it were). What I meant by that was smooth out any imperfections or make me look better than I actually do, but instead I got some very creative adaptations as you can see here!

I did get a couple ‘keepers’, at least one of which you’ll see very soon when the blog migrates to a dedicated domain (www.wideawakeinwonderland.com)

Until then, you can feast your eyes upon me as a starlet. When I jokingly complained that he didn’t make me look anything like Charlize Theron, the photographer plopped my face on her body (keeping her chin and hair) as ‘proof’ I look exactly her. How weird is that!?!?

Truth be told, I find this image EXTREMELY alarming!!!

    Maybe you have some kind of virtual PTSD from the dramas and traumas of all my travel lo these recent months?

    This reminds me though: One Saturday around midnight I was walking in Sofia, Bulgaria with my friend and we passed a nightclub. It seemed to be really hopping, and there were three or four huge bouncers outside. I was trying to peer inside as we passed, and I caught the eye of one of the bodyguards who proceeded to scream (what sounded exactly like), “Sniper! Sniper! Sniper!”

    I didn’t hit the ground, but I considered it. Seriously though, any Bulgarians out there who can translate?
