actually a small part of my birthday (formerly and inaccurately entitled: what i obsessed about on my birthday)

So, yeah, I had a birthday on Monday. It was great, thanks for asking. What would have been a drawback, except for the presence of a dear friend who was in the same boat, was that it was time to get my license renewed. This is a big deal, because I have loved LOVED my old license picture. See?

It's, like, better than my wedding pictures, for goodness sakes. Who knows how terribly accurate this next license picture will be? I like looking better on my license than I do in reality. Ironic much? Because, QUESTION: when do I ever show my license when I'm NOT there to give testament to the fact that it's a charitable depiction of me? ummm, wait...ANSWER: now.

In similar news, why does Sam's even have a pixilated ID picture on their membership cards? It never even looks remotely like the cardholder.

Oh my goodness, Sam's ID cards are the WORST. Once the picture they took for my card was so bad that it was 1/2 of me, and 1/2 of my husband (who was just standing in the background). I just laughed every time i used it. :)

You're right. That's just an awesome picture and there's really no getting around it.
I'm with Chelsea...how'd the new one turn out?

Incredible picture of you...almost as good as the sassy one I took of you coming out of Target. I still hear that funky song every time I look at it..." a little bit more.alittebitmore" AND very good question about the Sam's pics...what is the point?
