Bring on the filters

You know, if I were going to retouch a photo of myself, I probably wouldn't spend much time on my chin.

Me either. The resolution on my camera phone takes care of that kind of detail for me. Though there are limits.

For my last self-photo, the mini-camcorder I bought before Christmas actually had bad enough rez on the still shot that I went back to the cellphone for a retake.

Which is too bad, because the screen on the camcorder swivels around far enough that I was actually able to frame the shot before clicking. With the phone it's click, check the result, reject, click again, check the result...

I could get someone else to take pictures of me, but then I'd have to buy Photoshop.

Retouching your chin isn't gay. Now THIS... this is GAY.

He lives in LA, remember?

OT: Chaz, I hope the weather didn't annoy you too much. Are you OK there?

Fizzled out, it did; of the promised 3 to 6 4 to 8 3 to 5 inches, we got essentially nothing. (Official Oklahoma City total, early on, was a "trace," meaning "it was there but it was lower than half our usual measurement minimum.")
