Jane

As a Freshman in college, it was common for me to sit around and do nothing with my roommates. One day we stumbled on something great. And it was this: Michelle can draw. So we had her draw our portraits. The extra-great thing is that each drawing came out sooort of looking like us but is a little off. So Brooke's sketch was called Brandy and mine was Jane. Meet Jane.



Wow, Jane looks like a creepy ghost. But she is not as creepy as Meredith, aka Michelle, whom I had to draw because Michelle wasn't allowed to do a self-portrait. Wow. If ever there was a thing to bring about nightmares...

(p.s. is my blog looking weird to you? because it is to me.)

You're missing the background on your blog, I think.
As for Jane, someone I knew on my mission did a sketch of me, but I think it looks like an alien. Maybe we are all inclined to think that drawings of us look odd, the same way we think our recorded voices are weird. Or maybe these people can't really draw as well as we think.

the background? I see it on my computer. But the text is all lame and tiny. What's going on, blogger.

Joel said...

The text looks okay to me, but in both Firefox and IE the background color is gone, while the individual elements (posts, lists, etc.) seem normal.

Ah, good times Jen. I think I still have "Shelly" tucked away somewhere.

Jen said...

Shelly! I forgot about her.

OH MY HECK!!! I haven't been on the computer in days! How funny was that?! I've gotta find the Merideth picture. Those were great times. I actually walked by our old apartment yesterday and showed Heber where we buried the pony.

Oh pony....I wonder if he is still there.

Jane looks so much more normal than Brandy. I have her somewhere, but she creeps me out.
