Me, Myself and Eye

If taking selfies in the car were a sport, I'd go pro.  I'm considering a vanity-riddled series called "The Many Faces of Arica" where I just post all the ridiculous selfies I've taken lately. I chalk it up to growing up with America's Next Top Model. Always trying to 'find the light'. And, I mean, some pretty successful photographers promote selfie-taking as a way of playing with angles and learning how to photograph people in a flattering way. So since I'm not a photographer, that doesn't really justify this hobby of mine but it does make me fell better about the hobby. So I'll take it.

However, a few weeks ago, prior to our company golf tournament, I was early to the course so I was sitting in the car... taking selfies, of course. Little did I know, I was doing a 'before' photo shoot.

Ok, I should stop and mention that I was attempting to get a particularly pathetic shot to include in a post about how I had to get up at 5am on a Saturday, drive almost twice as far as I usually do for work just to play golf. 

Okay, again, I should stop and explain that these pictures were starting to remind me of "Hot girls making ugly faces"... have you guys seen this? Average looking girls take their best flattering "Hot girl" pictures and put them next to their best "ugly face" pictures... it's. hilarious. Look it up. It's totally a testament to the fact that angles and filters and lighting make all the difference. Here are a few.

So then I went and played golf with these yahoos. We were trying to look like we were drunk and leaning on our drivers... idk if it really came across in the photo... oh well. And Andrew! Not leaning. Lame.

All that narcissism before the tournament only to get some pollen or something that I was allergic to in my eye at the golf tournament, have my right eye swell closed like Hitch, terrify everyone in the clubhouse when I took my sunglasses off at the end of the day, get four Benedryl shoved down my throat, and also get a sunburn on my nose. This is how I ended the day.

Oh hey, hot stuff. Cool selfie. High note: I won the lady's long drive contest with only one eye. Granted, there were only 2 other girls in the tournament... details, details.


  1. Okay, so I want to know which one you think was most pathetic I have my contender. Also, I'm framing the beaver one and putting it my hall.
