"It's really simple. I love how every photo tells a story. Some short stories, some long tales. I want to know what is your favourite photo of yourself. Everyone has one. The photo they look at and smile. It reminds them of something, some time, some place. A moment in time. So share the photo, share the story and then tag three other people. I want to see photos and stories all around the blogosphere".
A favorite photo of... myself...?! Riiiiiiiight. I am truly the least photogenic person I have ever met. Well, that or I'm just flat out ugly (but I refuse to believe that's true). I hate pretty much 99% of all the pictures (ever) taken of me. My friend Todd always gets frustrated because I refuse to allow him to post any pictures of me on his Facebook page after we've had any sort of holiday together. Because they're all ugly, that's why.
Once in a while, someone takes a picture that's not so ugly. Once in a big friggin' blue moon. This is one of those pictures...
That's my friend Hugh (again, a friend friend and not a friend wink wink). This picture was actually taken the first night I met him (or it was the second night... I was a bit drunk and I don't quite remember). He and Todd have been friends since they were teenagers and I met Hugh through Todd. We were in London (in Todd's flat, to be specific). I'd heard a lot about him (had been warned about him, actually)... mostly that he had an ascerbic personality and could be a bit sharp, sarcastic, and intimidating. However, I found him to be a riot (and drool-worthy gorgeous, too... am I right ladies?). We hit it off immediately, as you can see, and became fast friends. I love his company when I'm in London and he came here last summer, when we spent 2 solid weeks together... and I didn't even want to kick him once!
I love the picture because I just look so happy (a lot of alcohol probably didn't hurt) and because I remember feeling that way, too. It was smack-dab in the middle of a fabulous weekend that I didn't want to end. And I wouldn't mind a few more of those, that's for sure!
I tag anyone who wants to do the meme!
