...another entirely spurious meme!

Take a picture of yourself right now. Don’t change your clothes. Don’t fix your hair. Just take a picture. Post that picture with no editing. (Except maybe to get the image size down to something reasonable. Don’t go posting an eight megapixel image.) Include these instructions.




I had to use the camera on my phone because Bogna's gone off somewhere with my camera, but anyway. Look upon the face of hutch, ye mighty, and despair. God I need a haircut.

I'm smiling, dammit! Well, inasmuch as anyone would smile after the week I've had and then tried to take a photo of themselves with a phone camera at quarter past eleven at night. The first one I took, I managed to get one of my ears and the radiator behind me in frame.

Actually, I was trying for `wistfully amused,' but on reflection I look as though I've had a mild stroke. That's rather alarming.

Hmm, you don't look nearly weir\\\ (ahem) eccentric enough to be a writer! Positively normal looking, in fact...

Hm. And which value of `normal' are you using here...?

My own completely subjective one, of course!

For example:

Alastair Reynolds -> Anomalously under-eccentric by writer standards.

Neal Stephenson -> No anomalies here.

For an impromptu shot of yourself you certainly look dapper. And you're asking us to take a candid pic of ourselves, as is?

As if.

What a set up.

I just crawled out of the sack an hour ago and sucked down a cup of tea. No. You are not getting a pic. Sorry. :O

Well, them's the rules. If it had just said `take a photograph of yourself and post it,' don't you think I would have had a bath and a shave and put some decent clothes on first? Not to mention getting a night's sleep.

Well, for someone who needs sleep, hasn't shaved, and thinks he needs a haircut, you look pretty damn good. As for clothes, what's wrong with what you're wearing? Looks nice.
