I positively refuse to say anything serious in this post. I spent a lovely, frivolous evening playing with Photoshop, updating the ‘self-portrait’ I’d concocted last year by pasting on a more current version of my face. This bit of nonsense was unwittingly spurred on by my most recent blog Sistah, Jeanne, who has been writing a blog called The Assertive Cancer Patient for several years, and who remarked that after searching for a good Amazon image to hang on her own wall, she’d had a friend paint an image of her as an Amazon. I directed her to the page of this site upon which my original effort is stored, and thought, “I should do that over…”
So, it’s your fault, Jeanne, that I decided to spend the evening on this. I hope you all enjoy the results. Now at least, I have a real leg tattoo of my very own to put on this version. My apologies once again to dear, unsuspecting Anna Yudovin, whose original painting I came upon at Elfwood.com. Thank you again, Anna, and I hope you’ll continue to forgive me for grafting my kisser onto your spirited image. I am this tall, and I’m still this leggy, and I used to be this slender not all that long ago. And it is my right breast that was chopped, although I do have a bit of it left. Now, I don’t know why I even bothered not having the whole thing removed, although I was acting on the information I was given at the time. But don’t get me started on that subject, or I’ll break my own promise not to say anything serious!
Up yours, Cancer! Just you wait till I take those archery lessons!!
