I've finally decided to post, seeing as I've uploaded an avatar.
This is me on board a tall ship. We had to wear harnesses because we were climbing the masts that day, so I decided to clip everything onto the harness.

Aww, thanks. I must admit, I had a better time on the ship than on that night :P. Climbing a 40 metre tall mast = awesome. All night dancing to songs which I don't really recognise is marginally less so.

Was there a reason behind climbing said 40m tall mast? Or, did someone just randomly say: "Hey everyone, i've got an idea, lets go cli..." :P


Anywhoo, agreed... Maximum prettiness achieved via the strategic use of harnesses, and a nice smile.

Those are some purddy, purddy photos! Particularly the waterfally thing - looks very crisp.

I like the one of you as well - more then your avatar, actually. Looks like something went wonky with aspect ratios and your avatar got stretched horizontally.

------------------------
So, every year I grow out my hair, then cut it off and donate it. This time, I stopped halfway through for a great photo-op. Behold, the mullet in it's natural habitat:

mullet.jpg
Also behold our filthy kitchen (with 1.5 blenders), as well as how incredibly pale and skinny I get after only two weeks indoors recovering from a neck injury.

I was hoping that this picture would never see the light of day, but my "friends" already uploaded it to Facebook (though they didn't tag it with my name, instead labeling the subject as "Rusty the Squidbilly." The resemblance is uncanny!)

@PBD: Very Awesome. I remember encountering one of those cutout posing things in Kyoto's downtown shopping district. There was a half-second of thinking, "What the heck is this doing here?" immediately followed by, "Picture time, nao." We found several others in some rather unlikely places. I'll see if I can find the picture of me as a samurai about to kiss my friend Justin (the samurai's wife).
