Krissy offered up the topic for the Weekend Assignment over at By The Way (that’s a topic I offer up to give AOL Journalers something to post over the weekend), so I wanted to put up a picture of her to go with it. The problem is that most of the pictures I have of her are taken in my office, which is usually in various states of explosion, and that needs to be addressed; I don’t necessarily want people to see what an unholy mess my office closet is if I can avoid it. So, it was Photoshop, Photoshop, Photoshop, until the unbridled feculence that is my office was reduced to a monochromatic blur, and then a little more fiddling to make sure Krissy didn’t look just like a cutout photo in front of a smear.
Then when it was done, I sat back to admire my Photoshoppery, and it occured to me to actually take a look at who was actually, you know, in the center of the picture. At which point I said to myself, “holy crap, my wife is hot.” It says something about how much of a geek I am that I could get totally engrossed in the minutae of photo fiddling that I’d miss that salient point. I’m making up for it now, though.
I sent the picture to Krissy at work after I was done. Her comment: “Book deadline?” Damn you all, you’ve infected her with your snark. I’ll get you. I’ll get you all.
