Olga & My Blog Picture.

I think this will be my last blog post for the day. As you know (if you read ahead) I've been without my blog for a few days, and I guess I'm doing a little catch-up.

Anyway, this weekend I met Olga, who has posted here on the blog. She's super sweet, and I was so busy yakking away I totally ran out of time and didn't get to talk to her as much as I'd have liked to. (I owe ya a drink sometime, Olga! Sorry!) Anyway, I don't look like my blog picture anymore. I whacked off like 10". And of course, there's that entire weight issue. She said she hardly recognized me! Ugh...I have GOT to lose weight!!!!

Anyway, I'll try my damnest to get an updated picture of me on the blog. I realized there are people that I'd love to meet up with at Nationals and they won't have a clue who I am because I don't look like the picture they've seen! So look for that to come in the next week or so. (I hate having my picture taken, so I promise to TRY not to procrastinate on this!)

Oh my, how I can relate to the picture thing. I was doing a signing in Atlanta for my poetry book and another author came up and said that I really needed to up date my picture (on the back of the book) because no one in the world would ever associate that picture with me today. Talk about an ego blow! So, I have definitely update my pictures everywhere else since!

Your talent is what's beautiful!

Hey Brenda! Just stopping by to visit your site. Also, got your comment on Manic Mom and I am vowing to drop a few but I'm not sure I'm up for a challenge via the internet! But then, I guess we could eat fat-free cyber cookies all day long!! Have a great day! Steph

Brenda, thank you so much for posting about me and telling I'm super sweet! I wish I could talk to you more, too. And your weight is fine; it was probably just me, almost blind. Sorry about the certificate, but MAJOR CONGRATS with your 3rd place!

LOL, I know all about pictures. Took me thirty tries to finally find one that didn't make me look..uh...well old? I love your blog, btw, and will be back!

Hi Dorothy! Thanks for dropping by. Your picture is so tranquil looking. I really have to get a new one up. This one is only about 4 months old, but my meds added pounds and the haircut really changed drastically. So...need an updated one so ya'll will recognize me at Nationals!!! Speaking of which, the airline tickets will be finalized sometime this week!!! Time is just flyin' by!

Olga, nothing you said, darlin'. I know the picture isn't a clear representation of me anymore! You're too sweet to imply otherwise!!! (Love the accent, btw!)

Olga said...

Brenda, thanks for the compliment about accent! Sometimes I'm afraid it will scare people away as it's so hard to understand me...
