Some mornings I wake up and look in the mirror... I see a few wrinkles, the same old eyes, the hair that I would cut weekly if I could be assured that it would grow back quickly (remember that cut 'n style Barbie thing? - that's what I want my own to be like)... I have debated the merits of colored contacts because as much as I love my brown eyes - change is fun right?
I like myself - I really do. If I weren't me I'd want to hang out with me... If I weren't me to the tune of being a guy not me I would SO want to date myself. See, I'm self obsessed even - so this isn't a lack of self esteem thing, it would just be SO CONVENIENT!
If I were a HUGE game player (which I am not... really) I would know all that stuff about creating a cool avatar - according to makeuseof.com it is very important to have a "stylish avatar"
Well the fact is... I kind of wish I were an avatar... want a tan? click here. New clothes? bing! what? weight issues - begone! Want your eyes to be a different shape? there are 59 to choose from! and eye color? okay - let's see... brown, green, blue, hazel... okay - they have 24 to choose from, maybe they're not so concerned with reality.
Did I just say Reality? of COURSE they're not concerned with reality! Because in reality I can't just try on 80 hair styles in 24 colors to see what I want to look like today. Of course, if I could... I probably would. True story - I'm just like that! I would tell you how many hair colors I experimented with in the HS days... but my kids sometimes read this :)
in just SECONDS, I could be ANY of those people... maybe...
F.Y.I. - in the amount of time I wasted trying to find a site where I could create an avatar (free was crucial) and actually be able to keep it to post... I could have gotten ready for a grand ball... of course, I couldn't have grown my hair out and changed my eye color...
with nods of acknowledgement to planetcreation.co.uk - even though I couldn't save my pouty looking girl with the 3-D glasses, zwinky.com - even though they don't like Macs, a bunch of others that didn't seem to work... sorry, for now you're stuck with Audrey :)
