My friend Lou O'Bedlam, master photographer that he is, managed to capture what Oprah would call "my spirit" during a photo shoot over the weekend.
Keep in mind that Alie had no idea anything was amiss until Lou emailed us the photos on Monday. I stared at the photos over her shoulder as she laughed in horror as the scene unfolded on her computer screen.
I feel like if someone were to ask what my personality was like, the askee would need only show the asker this series of photographs, and they would get a pretty good idea. That makes me endlessly happy.
Of course, there were some slightly more normal photos that day:
But the aforementioned ones are my favorite, of course.
