The many faces of me

My sister-in-law, Lindsay, recently got a MacBook. Now I need one, of course. Mainly because of one particular program that allows you to take distorted pictures of yourself. I could entertain myself for hours upon hours. This is, in fact, what I did when Lindsay first showed me the program. I now share with you the results of my little photo shoot.

Here I am as a mischevious martian leprechaun. You'll never get me lucky charms, earthling!






































I just imagine a shrill, deafening screech of anguish when I look at this one. Kristen is in the background, transitioning from amusement to a hesitant disgust.




















I like to call this one "Young Mr. Jobbles". Actually, I couldn't think of anything else to say, so I just made that up. At the least, you can admire the hourglass figure . . . of my skull.




















Whoa! I apologize for any nightmares that involve the disturbing image that follows. Has anyone reading this seen the movie Predator? If you remember the part when the predator takes off his mask, you'll probably agree that I look like predator's baby here.




















And here's my favorite of the bunch. It's just perfect in every way. And Kristen's back to being amused.

Awesome pictures. The Predator one is especially eerie in light of the fact that Daniel Kent Wood spelled backwards in spanish just happens to be... "Predator"!!!

You should send the last one to Pixar. They'd make a movie about you for sure.

After 7 long weeks of new baby stress and "having three kids" stress- I just laughed so hard I cried off all my makeup and carefully applied concealor...concealing my dark circles under my eyes....I must leave you know, to go re-apply. Thanks for the hearty laugh. You are awesome. I needed that.

Dan, I just looked that those pictures again. They're pretty dang funny. I can't help but picture how excited you must have been to discovery the endless possibilities.

My mom just got a MacBook and Baptiste and I play far to much on it. Picture this ridiculous scene: Baptiste and I sitting across from each other at the dinner table each with our Mac, chatting on iChat and just watching ourselves make distorted faces with commentary. It must be a good product if two graduate school graduates can be that easily enthralled. You definitely need one of your own.

Sweet. Just bought an iMac - gotta try this out. This program just might put theme park cartoonists out of a job.
