Deluxe Model

Yep! My baby's a ginger!

(Deluxe model b/c redheads are rare.)

I'm not a fan of ginger hate jokes, btw. They were funny and lighthearted teasing for a little while and then they just started feeling... I dunno. Like I was being singled out and ragged on for something I like about my appearance. It started making being a redhead less fun, which had never happened to me before. I've always liked being a redhead.

So... yeah. My friends cut it out when I finally asked them to, which is what friends do for each other, and I appreciate it. I know how hard it must be to keep the especially clever ones under their hats.

Alex, being a smarty-pants, has never said anything negative about my looks ever. He loves to tease me, but he's always drawn the line at anything that might make me feel self-conscious, and considering how many things women have already in our lives that make us self-conscious about our looks, I think he's got the right idea of it. I might not mind being teased about my looks at first, but eventually it would start to sink in like damaged cells under a bad sunburn and poison how I think about myself. And that's not cool.

That said, I'm happy my baby is a ginger. He looks a lot like me right now, and it's pretty awesome being able to see your own features in a tiny human. It really solidifies the knowledge that you're connected.

Beth's Art

I think my art is cute, but I have no delusions: I'm a writer dabbling in doodles for fun.

Tanner as a Roommate

My dad was a soldier, a cop, and a fireman. When Alex and I moved to a new state, my dad warned me that bad things happen in laundromats, thus making it so that I Never Did Laundry Alone Ever Again. My brother later told me that my dad had "been worried" when Alex's male friend moved in with us for a while.

Here, I show a Snidely Whiplash vs Dudley Do-Right scenario, whereas the reality was a lot more... weird.  Mostly, we stayed in different rooms playing video games except during meals.

Dire Baby

Totally serious role-playing going on, and then? Aaron.

(Yes. Yes I did have to include all that non-essential role-playing. Because nyah!)

I was reading a quilting book at my parents' apartment when I heard this in the hall.

Apparently, my dad's previous attempt at dressing himself did not go so smoothly.

Rep Grind

World of Warcraft joke. You had to do a lot of repetitive stuff to get reputation with factions to buy some of the better endgame starting gear.
