Sarah: Computer Nerd or Photographic Phenomena?

As I already posted, I took a picture of myself enjoying some Diet Coke while hanging out with Mallory, Marci, and Lisa.

Afterwards, I set this picture as my MSN profile picture. Lisa mentioned that she liked to think it was me looking at my computer, drinking a Coke, and enjoying whatever website I was reading. In other words, what I look like all day at work.

This conversation got me thinking about other pictures I currently had stored on my computer. I thought I'd share my somewhat disturbing discovery:

Sometime during Aug.-Dec. 2003

Lisa's husband Blake had a project for his photography class. I was the subject. So what did I do? Played on his computer while he took photos.

Sometime during Jan.-Mar. 2004

Me. At my computer in Logan. My roommate's boyfriend would always walk in while I was looking exactly like this (on the floor, computer and phone in easy reach) and say "Net-ratting it again?" I don't know what that means, exactly, but I always said yes.

Late Mar. or early Apr. 2004

Me. At Armando's computer. I think this may have even been one of our first dates. Hi. Nice to meet you. Can I check my email?

Several months later.

I was playing on Armando's computer. Apparently he got bored. So he played dress-up-Sarah while I continued to surf the internet. I looked away from the computer long enough to make eye contact with the camera. Why can't he just sit quietly while I interact with my cyber-friends?

Mar. 2006

I had to take a picture of myself for the Century magazine. My computer is just out of view, but you can see that I prefer looking at my computer over looking at the camera.

I'm beginning to feel like I only exist on film in the presence of a computer. Either that, or I'm a total nerd.

I prefer to believe the former.

Another fun game is called Watch Sarah's Hair Grow. Because seriously dude. That took a long time.

I made additional photo discoveries while searching my computer. I will post them in the next day or two.

Why not both?

Hmm. Good point. Hi Gemini6Ice! Good to see you still hang around!

Is it wrong that I kind of like your cowboy hat? Also, do you think my hair could be as long as yours by September?

Ha! That's the cowboy hat I gave Armando along with his belt buckle. So obviously I like it too. And I like your hair at its current length, but it could at least be as long as in the cowboy hat picture.

No, I mean as long as your hair is now. And I am not asking because I want to wear a cowboy hat, IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING.

Yeah, I figured that's what you meant, but I don't think that's a terribly realistic amount of growth. But maybe! My hair doesn't grow very fast, so perhaps you'd have better luck. Unfortunately this post has made me want to drastically cut my hair... I must ponder this further.
