Girls Write Out
Thursday, October 12, 2006

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve got new pictures! Is there anything that’s normally more miserable than getting your picture taken? Other than clothes shopping when you don’t fit in the size you think you do anymore. But other than that, pictures are generally MISERABLE.

We had a blast that day though, thanks to our friendship and our photographer Jodie Westfall. Okay, Jodie had to referee our fight over the truffles, but other than that it was good. But it really showed me a new side to my buddies. For one thing, I found out Di really didn’t trust me. She kept freaking out about me waving a butcher knife around (it was my prop). I kept telling her I was being careful, but she didn’t seem to believe me.

And Denise kept coming up with these unusual ideas for poses. Who would have thought she was so artistic? She’s a DRUMMER, for petes sake! It’s those quiet ones you have to watch. Then there was Kristin. She didn’t like the yellow background Jodie had us stand against. And she kept taking off her shoe and looking at it. What’s up with that?

It’s hard to be the only normal one in the group. Sad isn’t it?

But back to the pictures. We're getting our blog professionally designed and I can't wait for you all to see what is coming soon!

it's not really pepto pink...sort of...well...PINK, pink. My cousin created a site with black texk on a black have to figure out where the text is, highlight it and then paste it into word or some such program...he's a tad odd.

The pink never really bothered my that least it isn't yellow. ICK

tehehe . . .won't let my youngest "hear" Allen's dislike of yellow. She'd give him whatfor!

Me . .. I don't care about color. I like the fact that you guys update your blog more than I update mine! {smirk}

What a timely topic--new photos. Yeeeck. Sarah Anne Sumpolec at Girls and God is also writing about photos--and how important they are. I look forward to what your photographer did with you all--you, who are all photogenic. (You all look great in photos.) I, on the hand, am not/do not. And yes, pepto pink is what I'd call it, but that's from someone who generally avoids pink...and generally has no clue what color to wear.

Let's be looks like someone puked pepto over your blog! LOL I'm SO not a pink person!

At 7:20 PM, Blogger Sabrina L. Fox said...

I'm with ya, Robin. I'm not a pink or purple girl.

Actually, yellow is one of my favorite to brown and khaki (yes, I believe khaki is a color) ;)

I can't wait to see the new blog look!! :) Love the picture of the truffles er you gals. :)

At 11:52 PM, Blogger allen said...! Honestly, not much of a pink guy here, but you people are hostile toward the color. I had no idea that pink had so many enemies...

Heather...sorry about yellow...I do like khaki...and as an art college prof. I can honestly state that khaki is a it taupe (sp?) they say it's soothing...I've just never master yellow (or pink) in any of my paintings.

On the subject of pink: pink blogs I can handle. It's guys wearing pink shirts that really gets to me. What's up with that? There should be rules about these things.

When Tim and I first started going out, he had a shirt he called "salmon". Ick. It was pink. After we married, it was the first thing to go!

Yeah. I'm the only normal one in my writer's group too. Ha ha. (hope none of them see this.) Colleen looks very natural with that knife.

I agree with you Reese...I need to show my wife your post. The other day she held up a pink shirt for me when we were shopping. I was at a loss for words. I told her I'd wear the shirt when a particular warm, evil place had snowfall.

I don't like pink, but I rarely notice the background color on your blog. I'm more interested in the content! Looking forward, though, to seeing what the professional "blog-designers" will do.

ROFL . . . Allen, you'll notice I said my daughter, not me! I'm not a fan either. I have to try really hard not to make my opinion known. We all laugh as Mom really wanted me to love yellow. . . and I hated it. Now I've got a little one who loves it.

As for men/boys in pink . . . haven't you seen those "real men wear pink"/"Chicks dig pink" shirts? {smirk} I think someone at the t-shirt plant had already run a million girls' shirts, and wanted a change!

Just last Saturday when I was prepping for my theater troupe I saw an art major (yeah...big suprise there) who had a shirt on that said "real men wear pink". I almost slapped him...just kidding...I did tease him quite a bit for having the shirt.

I'm with you all, I HATE having pictures taken. Last spring my publisher made me bite the bullet--time for new pics, they said. "You write only suspense now; that picture's too...mild. We want something...mysterious. Not to mention the fact that your photo's now 8 years old.

Yeah, but who wants to wants to show 8 years' worth of new wrinkles?

Would you believe the first shoot I totally FLUNKED. Had to hire a new photographer and do it ALL over again. Naturally, it was all the photographer's fault.

Second round I finally got it. I like my current photo, but sheesh--we had to take over 300 pictures just to get a decent one.

If the four of you accomplished good photo shoots all in one day--ya got power over me, that's for sure.
