Yesterday morning I woke up, got dressed and came out to check my emails and blogs. I opened the computer only to find that I was tagged by Katie at Such a Loverly Life- to do the picture tag. You know, the one where you take a picture of yourself without primping? The real rules are as follows:
1. Take a pic of yourself right now.
2. No primping or preparing.
3. Just snap a picture.
4. Load the picture onto your blog.
5. Tag some people to play along.
Here is a snippet of my internal dialogue that went on after reading my name on Katie's blog:
My Vain Self: "You can go brush your teeth and comb your hair- this tag doesn't really apply to you since you just woke up."
My Rule Abiding Self: "But think about how guilty you would feel if you did exactly what the rules told you not to do?"
MVS: "But come on, you look like, well, you just got up."
MRAS: "But those are the rules Taryn. Follow the rules!"
It went on like this for some time. In the end, I combed my fingers through my hair and then opened Photo Booth and took this picture . . .
My Vain Self and My Rule Abiding Self compromised with Sepia. It really hides quite a bit.
(Again- please please please tag yourselves. If I can do it after just waking up- I know you (yes you) can do it too!)
