Whoops! I got so wrapped in preparing for Date #7’s visit (and trying to pretend that I wasn’t actually doing anything to prepare for it) that I completely forgot to write about my photo shoot with dance photographer Brian Mengini!
Photo shoots make for excellent blogging—I mean seriously, what’s more egocentric than an afternoon spent posing in front of an expensive camera? It’s all me, ME, MEEEE!!! Except when I attempt to do my “sexy” look, it which case it’s more “Aghh! My eyes!!! Make it stop!”
(My “sexy” look, for those of you yet to be inflicted, is about as sexy as my wink, and my wink is rather… epileptic. I can’t wink with just one eye, which basically defeats the entire purpose of winking, and blinking, I’ve since learned, isn’t nearly as come-hither as I’d previously imagined.)
Unfortunately Brian’s already beaten me to the punch so you’ll have to head on over to Artistry in Motion for the full scoop on my second shoot (including his neighbor’s rather surprising reaction to my tap dancing) and a sneak peak at the results. (Also, if you missed my post on the shoot Brian did for me and my co-producer earlier this year and/or you’ve always wondered what its like to be a stripper and/or supermodel, click here).
Now, getting back to today’s topic, shall we?
Right—I haven’t told you today’s topic yet. This is because it’s going to require a bit of audience participation.
I’ve taken all of your comments into advisement and I’ve also resolved to stopped making resolutions (or, at the very least, to stop blogging about them). But I still need some help. I’m launching a new top secret project for which the growth of my blog is rather important—paramount, even—so I’m going to spend the rest of the week trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t work.
Don’t worry: this doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop talking relationships (especially as Date #7’s taken to sending me scandalous text messages again…) it just means that I’m going to pair each of this week’s posts with a question.
Something along the lines of:
Comment below. (Preferably, you should write your comment in the form of an answer to the aforementioned question but I know I’ve got some non-conformists out there so if you’d rather offer an erudite elucidation on the subject of… I dunno… the state of nature, as described by Thomas Hobbes, go for it. I might even read it.)
