So as you know I am here in Vegas, staying in the sweetest suite I have ever stepped foot into. The trade show I am working afforded me MANY free drinks and I found myself more than slightly intoxicated the other night. Somehow it made perfect sense at the time, but I grabbed the camera and headed for the ridiculously huge bathroom. Clothing was off, leaving a trail through the bedroom and to the mirrors. Turns out that when I am drunk I think I am artistic. Here’s the result.
Yeah, trying to take the photo over my shoulder while being kind of drunk wasn’t easy. I probably should have cropped out a good portion of the top that is all hair. And yet I decided I liked the way you could sort of only sort of see me, therefore my lazy and drunk self deemed the photo “artistic” and successful. Then I went on to shoot some more.
Did i mention how difficult it is to do this stuff alone with mirrors while drunk? Yeah, one of these days I’ll get some help with the stupid camera part. What started out as an ok idea turned out to look like I am sniffing my armpit. While I was drunk and taking these photos I got all confused because my Strong Woman tattoo is actually on my right shoulder, but the mirror image shows it on the left in these pictures. Turtle is on the wrong side, too. Yeah, WAY too much for someone who drank enough Ketel One to kill a horse.
Didn’t stop me though. I took a bunch of photos and not a one of them really came out good. See?
I accidentally cut off a good portion of my body, yet sure did get plenty of shower door and my hair is taking over the right side of the image. Sheesh.
When trying to get a decent self portrait I started to laugh at the absurdity of what I was doing. Especially since I was totally naked, taking photos for Half Nekkid Thursday. At one point I was sort of shaking my head at my own self. I think that is when I snapped this one…
I took some breast shots as well, but I wanted this post to be @snackiepoo friendly so I’ll save them for another post. Should you decide that you can’t wait, email me and I’ll send them to you.
Hope your day is wonderful. I head back home to Pittsburgh and reality around 2 PM Vegas time. As much as I will miss maid service and my sweet suite, I am eager to get back to the Burgh. Next week’s HNT will either be shots from Georgia or Reno, NV. Maybe both! (I leave for GA late on Sunday, then go from there to another trade show in Reno until the following Sunday. Should be plenty of time for photos…and perhaps I can even get someone to work the camera or to be in front of it!)
P.S. I probably should apologize for any typos, grammar errors and all around blatant misspelled words. You know I am drinking when I type this so you expected it, right?
And a further drunken PPS
This is the photo with a hopefully better crop, but still the fun hair filter.
