I was torn about which version of this picture to post -- should I put up the original, in which I do NOT look completely hideous but then again I don't look totally fantastic either, but that is because my scratch-and-win plan continues to fail to come to fruition and so I can't hire a professional stand-in body double, but I am digressing here and did you know it was possible to hijack your own blog post?
ANYWAY. Ahem. I know that this is the "money shot" anyway -- nobody looks at MY blog to see pictures of ME. My cousin Kate took this picture, and it's really quite awesome, so: Go Kate!
(If you click on the pic it will take you to my photostream. I did upload the original there.)
