This image is just begging to be photoshopped (or GIMP'd, or Elemented, or whathave you), people! I've turned on image downloading, and you have one week to show what I'm dreaming about.

Ok, not really, but their "Photos from your contacts" algorithm does. I've started getting around it by just plugging people I want to watch into my RSS aggregator, or feed reader. I've always just used it for blogs, but this is also a great way to get all the photos I was missing. There's lots out there, but I like Bloglines. You can just click the "add" button and enter in the address of whomever you want to watch. In my case, it's just:
It's sort of like Sim City, but with a collaborative aspect--when you visit my town, more people come to live there. Please to be clicking, 'cause right now I'm just above AIDStown and I don't wanna catch it. (You can get it just by looking at someone, right?)
As you may have noticed on my blog, I've been really into photography lately. Part of what's fueling it is participating in the 365 Days Project, where you take a self-portrait every day for a year. It might sound crazy, but so far it's been fantastic. Having the structure and support of the flickr community has been great, and I've felt more creative lately then I have in years. I've learned so much about lighting, my camera, photoshop--I can't say enough how awesome the whole experience has been so far.
Anyway, I just finished my first month, and I'm really excited. Check out the whole set!
Please to be voting for my Superwoman shirt in JPG Magazine's "Beauty Redefined" competion. It's sponsored by the Suicide Girls, so there's some pretty, uh, stiff composition. However, just because I'm posting a picture of taking off my shirt does not mean I want your biodata.
Blahblahblah commercialism, blahblahblah! It's a holiday that celebrates chocolate, and that's something I can get behind! Now, I know most of you boys probably don't want to go professing your sentiments to each other for fear of sounding "gay," but just think--now's your chance to to tell each other that immortal sentiment:
Roses are red, Violets are blue, If you were a woman, I wouldn't date you!
