Wow! First of all, thank you to all who have joined in for the Swashbuckler Soiree taking place here on Saturday, May 3rd. There are close to 60 of us so far! (click on the link above if you haven't joined) This will be a blast, for sure. But my apologies to some of you who didn't understand the invitation. Obviously, I was a bit vague, about the location, etc. in that some thought this was a real party. I went back and tweaked the wording so it's much more clear. Hope that helped! Sorry about that.
Since that happened (the lack of clarity) it got me thinking about what we all assume is real or the impression of something, especially when you see or read it in the cyber-blog-world.
Like all of these photos on this post, one sort of gets an impression when viewing them. Here you see some very cool French menus. I have them displayed with great old silverware, silver trays, antique napkin rings, etc. They look really wonderful grouped together. But, of course, they give someone looking at them a certain impression or idea.
But this is really not who I am. I just want to be clear.
Now this...this is much more my reality.
I actually use this cookbook. And directions.
Here's the extent of my French cooking. Seriously. I guess my point is, things aren't always what they seem. I just wanted to be clear. And speaking of.....
Many of you saw this photo of me that was on Ulla's blog when we had lunch together last week. I had a couple of comments and a few emails that were complimentary. Thanks for that! And yes, that is a good photo of me. Hair's pretty good, the lighting is flattering, etc.
Just so we're.....
Talk about your altered art. Sheesh. And one more thing. I'm really not being that genuine here. If you try to click on the photos of me, they won't enlarge. I'm not that insane! So anyway, things aren't always what they seem. Are we clear? Now where's that damn eyebrow pencil, lipstick, lipliner, eyeliner, eyeshadow......? Yep, you get the picture - and it's probably airbrushed.
