"Professional" headshots and signatures

Since summercamp and others have brought it up, I can prove that my signature is the WORST EVER. Here ya go...a lil pictoral of climbing the ladder, both in image and prose...er, the worst handwriting you'll ever see :D

In the beginning, I wouldn't allow them to use a real head shot. Grr.

It was only a matter of time before we all became groundhogs at this publication. They even CHOPPED MY HAIR for the photo. Wha?

So when it was time to update, I wore black, thinking "surely, the pics won't get /worse/"...WRONG.

The mo money you make, the mo professionals work on your headshot /and/ your signature. At least mine is consistently awful. :D The headshot was...just...ugh.

And I *did* fight them over the headshot. I got away with it until I was promoted. I lost the fight at that point. But looky. My signature got better! lol

I warned j00 and warned j00 but oh no. That must've ruined your day. It did /mine/. *snort*

I like the signature - it's very Declaration of Independency!

I think it's all spindly/scary looking. Like a spider web or something. LOL. The orange-colored looking one took me five hours of writing/re-writing my name, over and over, until it was /almost/ legible. Hahahaha. I /hate/ all that signature/facial thing they always make me do (hence another reason NOT to get back in the bidness).

aww... the progression of your very-professional headshots is chute.

I think the first one looks the most like you. heh.

Hahaha! It wasn't supposed to BE chute! It was supposed to be self-deprecating. Even at their /best/ they all look horrible, I look unprepared or downright mad at 'em. :D

I like the cartoon best, too :D It started off as a joke (my editor wanted me to use a headshot with my weekly column), but everyone loved the cartoon and we went with it :)

And I knows that my signature is worse than a doctor's. LOL :) You've gotta agree with /that/. :P

I've said it before, and I'll say it again....

You have the handwriting of a cereal killer!!!!

*ahem, spelling intended*

I hate saying this (but we're close)...it was wonderful up until Thursday. Too much happened between then and now, most of which I've journaled privately. *sigh* But yes; things were looking up and quickly until Thursday then Friday's setback(s).

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
