Funny Friday: My Facebook friends are asses.

My Facebook friends are asses, kind of awesome asses but yep, asses.

I came out of a chronic illness fog and took a shower, added some fake tanning lotion so I could look a bit more like part of the living world, and actually did my hair. I admit I lost the energy for the effort and threw on a T-shirt and pajama pants and and didn't even consider make up, but the point is I was more together than normal. Now as my chronic illness peeps know this is a feat for celebration. I needed photographic evidence that I was out of a zombie-like trance. 

My photographer is four years old so most of the pics were of my leg or had such a blurry artistic edge I was unidentifiable. So like any 16 year old (or mom with no one around to take a picture) I selfied. 

Selfie - A picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook, Myspace or any other sort of social networking website. You can usually see the person's arm holding out the camera in which case you can clearly tell that this person does not have any friends to take pictures of them so they resort to Myspace to find internet friends and post pictures of themselves, taken by themselves.

Ouch Urban Dictionary, I can't help it that I am home alone geesh!

So on to how my Facebook friends are asses. I mean they are actually awesome but for the record in this post they are asses. I trusted them, I really trusted them. I cannot believe they have put me in this position. 

What position you ask... 

The position of looking like the crazy lady that brings her dog to Walmart for a photo session. Okay dog lovers, I don't mean PetSmart photos with Santa or even family photo with your dog included, I am all about that. I mean blue back drop with a "photographer" telling you to look off in the distance (that would be the dog) creating a cheap kind of creepy image. 



I am not fishing for compliments, I think its kind of cute... dog looks a tad stoned after looking at it too much during this middle of the night review. For all intent and purposes it is a fine photo and once almost 40 of the Facebook asses liked or commented on it I thought to myslef "self, lets make it a profile pic." 


Well as you know profile pics are tiny, and it looked even more portrait studio crazy.


So I updated my status "I just noticed my profile pic looks like a goofy walmart photo backdrop... it's a denim couch. You would have told me if I look like walmart photo girl right? Hmm can I really trust you? "

So as of now you are thinking holy narcissism woman, who cares about your selfie Facebook picture. I promise it is worth it. 

My Facebook friends (who are asses because they didn't mention this BEFORE) pretty much confirmed my suspicions.  I continued it further by really deciding if it was bad 80's creepy photo or more of a school picture. 

That is when the awesomeness ensued...

I kid you not, this is where the asses became the awesome.

I was sent this...




Oh yes and this...

Then this...

If you were wondering I am leaving the original as a profile picture for awhile. Mostly because I don't feel like showering and doing my hair in the same day but also because it reminds me that my friends are asses, but awesome asses! 

HOUR LATER UPDATE: My amazing blogging buddy pal saw this and said "I did tell you that. I made a Walmart comment." Sure enough on the original pic in with the comments was "Vicky the awesome chick from The Pursuit of Normal "Wow! Walmart had some creative backgrounds. Just kidding;)"

    1. In the thread on my page my friend Denise, who happens to be an AMAZING photographer, and I were getting a tad goofy on how 'bad' it was. She then went photo edit crazy and I woke up to those in my in box.
      Just awesome!

  4. Bwahahah! Thanks for the blurb on the blog;) I think you and you Hubs should renew your vows and give out those glasses as your wedding favors! Maybe Mags can be the ring bearer?
