Your Flesh Meme

John Hodges (underdogautopsy) had a meme that requested that everyone post an image of themselves on their blog, so that they can be identified, possibly, by future stalkers. For some unknown reason, I think this is a fine idea for a Monday, and so I called it Your Flesh and now it is a meme on this blog. So if you're reading this, show yourself on your blog. For myself, I don't have a pretty girl or happy face like Hodges' does, but here's one of me taken Saturday night at one in the morning:



Sure, it's not as cool as that Amazon author photo I've got, but a lot of my friends reckon I look mean in that. So fuck you all, here we go.

Now for you.


What do you mean this is not content? I'm going through the last edits of Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth, before I send it to Deb (mme_publisher). Brain space returning soon.

I can't believe you're wearing an orange t-shirt. I have never seen you wear a colour before.

it's more of a golden colour, i think.

and you said when i was wearing a red t-shirt, once.

I thought the same thing!

dude. i've only seen you a handful of times.

Ah yes, but each time you were wearing black... probably. Though now I come to think of it, I don't actually remember anything much about what you wore, so your reputation as "the man in black" may have filled in the blanks for me.

you gotta be careful with those reputations.

It's funny, many people who see me really quite frequently believe utterly that I never wear anything but black. I do wear black jeans and black shoes, but I have only a small number of black t-shirts, one black shirt, and no black jumpers. I don't even wear primarily dark colours on top any more, but it's impossible to shake the ol' reputation!

i actually do wear a lot of black, but i'm fine with this. i don't like logos, and most men's fashion just shits me. what i don't get is why other people seem to think it's a thing--you don't see me going round, saying, 'wow, you wear a lot of browns.'

*rolls eyes*

and then when i don't wear black, people are, 'holy shit, you're not wearing black.' like, dude, get a life, you know?

How embarrasing to have forgotten Snufkin.
Must make myself a Snork maiden icon.

oh yeah, I forgot about the red one.

no one ever remembers the red boots, either.

i never saw no red boots. I would have remembered red boots.

i don't think I've actually *seen* you in years.

Kewl colouryness in that there photo.

My stalker called up one Sunday morning at 9am and asked me to put on strappy heels.
benpeek
Aug. 28th, 2006 04:09 am (UTC)
just strappy heels?

Aug. 28th, 2006 04:13 am (UTC)
ha! I didn't stay on the line long enough to ask "Paul" for any more instructions!

that doesn't sound like a friendly stalker relationship there ;)

I know, I know. I'm just not giving enough. Perhaps I should get counselling.

I like that photo of you.

I also figure that as a shameless camwhore with her very own camwhoring community, I'm exempt from this meme.

well, sure, but if you want to get people to do it...

Tropical Storm Ernesto Endangered homoerotic stalking, no less. How many people can claim that, huh?

I know, I know. More than anyone would care to admit. My shame continues to deepen and burn, and soon it shall devour small moons whole in its vastness.

Forgotten, but Lurking
Alright. My pining and eager, manic fan-boy stalking just doesn't quite reach over the oceans as much as it used to. Once upon a time, my monomania would hit like hot steel rivets, even over international boundaries. Now, it's even a rarity that I'm remembered by the focus of my obsessions! I truly need to go back to that stalker refresher course at the local university... I hear they're having a Mystery guest speaker this term, straight across prison circuit broadcasting.

I do like the picture, though. I would claim I've spilled buckets of salty fluids already, but I try to stop just before hand... It's a new Tantric Stalking technique I've been dying to try. Turns everything inward to enhance the future moments...

It also makes for a decidedly apologetic penis.

Re: Forgotten, but Lurking
Alas, alack, and all that crap... ;)

If it helps to imagine such things, though... please! Feel free! I happen to know a few cute girls, however, so maybe I can get one of those life-size, free-standing cardboard photographs... and... ummm.

I think I'll stop right there, while it's still safe.

Re: Forgotten, but Lurking
exactly. i happen to know that cute girls dislike it when you take their photos and turn them into life size, standing carboard cutouts and... but, i say too much.

Re: Forgotten, but Lurking
I know exactly what you mean, even though I think what I was going to do with a life-size, free-standing cardboard photograph and... what you were going to with ... one of those ... is decidedly different.

'Though it might have similar results.

Well, when I tried it, the picture got stolen by a clown and...

...no, we just don't want to go there.

Re: Forgotten, but Lurking
Dude, no penis should ever apologize for Tantric Stalking. Sing about it, maybe, but apologize, no.
