Several words about a picture Nov. 17th, 2002 08:16 pm
A few days ago I completely failed to start a very narcissistic meme about default LJ icons. Since apparently no-one else is as vain/insecure as me, it completely failed to take off in anyone else' journal, and I have handed back my meme-breeder licence.

However, since the answers I got were intriguing (yes, even the ones about gay knees), it seems only fair to tell you where that picture came from.

The original image is here. It was taken at the Calling at the Kambar, by me simple method of me holding the camera at arm's length and pointing it in my general direction. The expression is therefore one of a vague curiosity of "I wonder if this will work" coupled with almost complete indifference, as I didn't expect it to. I was quite suprised that it came out as well as it did, and made it into an icon as it's one of very few pics I have of myself in goth make-up - and the enigmatic expression amused me ;)

Feh, you vain? I'm much vainer than you are.. I have at least five mirrors in my flat, and two of them in the bathroom alone. Its not that I'm insecure in my looks, I know I'm the best looking person on LJ. The problem is, though, when you are as good looking as me it's hard to know if someone is with you for my sparling personality, or just because they are trying to get into my pants.

However, I have a nice and complicated belt to deal with undesirables. (No coming in without instructions...!)

So people may se me as arrogant, but that's their own little insecurities showing.
