Picture Me

A brief hiatus to my blogging hiatus. Yesterday Tara commented on my size 11 feet and asked whether or not I was tall because she pictured me as a 4'11' Asian girl. This made me laugh...a lot. Because, ummm that's not just slightly off, but waaaaay freaking left field off.
And now I ask this, how do you all picture me? I sometimes wonder if I write in a way that best describes how I am in real life. Which I suppose could be another post for another day that further delves into a side by side comparison of blog life to real life. Nevertheless, I've posted two pictures, neither of which I can find now, but seriously, just from reading this 'blindly', what do ya'll think that I look like?

When I first found your blog, I thought you were probably a pretty white brunette girl -- the kind that so appears to have her shit together to the outside world that it's annoying.

I *think* you are a very hip and lovely African American woman. I picture a really funky hair style (but I don't know that hair style is-I just know it's "funky"). I am not sure about the height. Probably "average", about 5 foot 5 inches?

So, am I close?

Tara thinks EVERYONE is a 4'11 Asian girl. Seriously. She though Esbee was too.

I'd say how I picture you but that would be cheating.

Although, before you posted that first picture of yourself, I pictured you as totally different. I thought you were a red-headed hippie-type. Don't ask me why, just did.

I agree with Marissa, that's totally how I pictured you. The girl from Ben Affleck Sucks commented and thought I was asian. When I'm really a tall white girl. Haha. I do wonder how people picture me. But I've posted photos, so...oh well.

So thus far, I'm a red headed-hippie-short-black-asian chick.


Lizzie umm yeah, no cheating, and so unfair that you saw me at my worst. Seriously craptastic day that was.

You forgot perfect-on-the-outside-brunette-white-chick. :)

Yes, Marissa. Please forgive me.

But then again, that line will be used for my next post, cause I'm crafty like that.

Hmmm...I always pictured you to have dirty blondish hair--average height---with big doe eyes.

What do I get if I win??? Are we handing out prizes??? :)

Regardless of what you look like, you're a great writer!

I hate you if you're tall because I also know that you are thin and can lose weight w/o even trying because you said so. Tall and thin people aren't allowed to be intelligent and good writers too. It's just not fair.

I still contend that you are a 4'11" Asian girl. And until you fly your ass out to Chicago to prove otherwise, I'm not going to accept any other answer. There must have been something in one of your posts that made me think you were asian. Something about your mom maybe? I don't know.

Are you going to post a pic or will you keep the mystery alive?

I can't get the avatar out of my head, so you'll forever be a young hot pam grier to me.

I was SURE you were REALLY some fat middle-aged white guy in a garage in Detroit with plumber's crack. And your hot photos notwithstanding, I'm still not convinced it's not the truth... ;-)

Hot photos? Where do I find hot photos? God I feel so left out.

Wait...? No pasa nada? Are you latina?

Blogger F.Cali said...

Erm, I didn't really have any clear picture in my mind at all and then I saw your picture and I was all, it's about time, she's HAWT!!! ;-)

Or something. I can't remember.

Actually, I'm assuming you're a black woman, but even then, it doesn't give me a very clear image of what you look like -- because you could be a whole range of different shades of "black" -- and it doesn't really tell me much else about you.

Frankly, I don't really give much thought to what a blogger looks like, mostly because it doesn't really help me understand their writing.

If I am putting a blogger into a category, it is usually "funny, "poetic, "political," etc.

all right, put us out of suspense.

I don't remember what I thought, but I'm quite certain it wasn't Asian. I think I pictured you as athletic. And attractive.

I wish I had never posted a picture of myself so I could do this post.

OK, pretend you've never seen a picture of me. What would you think I looked like?

Blogger Sue Ellen Mischke said...

bone, I had the same reaction. I wished I hadn't put a photo of myself so I could see what people would think I look like.
