30, originally uploaded by minervacat.

This is what 30 looks like. 30, apparently, has a big zit on her chin and just poured coffee down her own cleavage. 30 is really mature, y’all.

I don’t have a lot of photos of myself. I have a camera so I don’t have to be in the photos; half the photos Ash has taken of me don’t have my face in them, just my camera in front of my face. But if there’s a time for bathroom photography while the cats stare at you curiously — well, I did put one of them in the sink and take his photo the other day — I guess it’s your 30th birthday.

I took today and tomorrow off from work; I’m spending them drinking beer, eating pizza covered in things that shep. calls “gross”, and watching basketball. The weekend’s eaten up by UNC/Florida State baseball. Life is pretty damn good. Happy birthday to me.

        who knew that our bathroom had such great light? 🙂

        also, i recently learned to actually pay attention to my white balance, which helps. *grin*

    I do like the portrait. Sorry about the zit, but it doesn’t really show. Did you Windex it? I posted a song in your honor on FB so go listen. Hope you have a wonderful evening and that your brackets prove true. Love m.

      nope, it’s just hiding behind the camera! that’s the nice thing about taking pictures of yourself, you can hide the zits with your gear. :))
