Return of the Abominable Photo Thread

Recommended Posts

hey we haven't had one of these in a while have we

 

post pictures of you or pictures that you've taken. keep it G-rated. don't post pictures of other people without their permission. remember that things you put on the internet stay on the internet and don't post things unless you're okay with random internet people seeing them.

hey look it's me, your friendly forum moderator lilith, pictured here in her natural environment: surrounded by food. this was originally meant to be a frittata but then i realised i didn't have enough eggs for that so it kind of became a vegetable stir fry with some eggs in it? except it's not really a stir fry either since i just used a regular frying pan? so i guess it's just fried vegetables and eggs? whatever it still tasted fine. oh also there's cheese in it too

i bought these extremely blue jeans in the united states of america! that makes them american jeans! i'm still australian though!

this is what i wore on christmas, because on christmas it's traditional to wear clothes. as you can see i am also wearing the traditional christmas colours of purple and lighter purple. i'm a very traditional person. the leggings are also american btw

there's no super exciting story behind this outfit, i was just meeting up with an old friend at a mexican sandwich bar (well a mexican-style sandwich bar in australia, not actually a sandwich bar in mexico). their sandwiches are good. highly recommended if you enjoy good sandwiches. also pictured: more american leggings

 

ok yeah so uh if you have photos to post and want to post them then you can go ahead and do that now. otherwise it's okay to just sit and watch too. have fun.

That's how the Nalyd looks most days.

That's how the Nalyd looks when it's not gross and tired. Note the distinct patterns on the chest: Nalyds often use these markings to communicate.

This is how the Nalyd looks when it's exploring abandoned factories.

That's how the Nalyd looks outside. Roaming makes Nalyds happy.

And this is the Nalyd returned to its den.

It's been a while since we had one of these!

 

Just moved to a new city, so here is the obligatory stand-in-front-of-a-landmark shot.

This is me with my hair down. It's over a year old, so it's actually quite a bit longer now. (Not as long as Nalyd's, though.)

This is me moments after passing through security at Newark late 2013. (The TSA lady remarked on my Evil Little Thing shirt but still let me fly. :p )

Yo.

 

Here is a recent photo of me, taken for my OKCupid account and for Facebook. I like the way I look here. The photo is blurry and fuzzy because it was taken with a dumbcamera on a dumbphone though.

 

10906263_4873802980483_8110276741792159480_n.jpg?oh=cc3dac8b096b383d3bf9a716a7e379e5&oe=55269F2F

 

Also, because I feel like it, this was my late father in his 20s. I LOVE this photo, which has recently been cleaned up by my talented cousin.

EDIT: hold on permissions

EDIT: nope not permissions just forgot to include the photo like a dummy

does photo no longer available mean mysterious?

 

Might be intended, or not.

 

Oh well, I don't want to be unfair, so...

Alorael has to be careful to hide his identity after all those pedestrians died from lead poisoning near his lawn. :)

I find it surprising (a little bit) that this forum is filled with real people with faces and stuff.

 

Probably I'd grown used to associating folks with their PDNs, avatars, projected personalities and the persona of their posts.

There are some of us who due to a combination of privacy/internet security and (at least in my case) ignorance of how to post a picture on the forums will remain cloaked behind our PDNs.

 

I was probably within 50 or so miles of Alorael's lawn this summer, fortunately I did not get to close as I would not want him to hurt himself trying to pick a shell casing out of his grass in order to hide evidence of my demise.

this is sometimes a good policy; there are people whose web identities are more stable than anything else about them, including their bodies. consequently getting attached to faces can be a little silly sometimes and really bodies are as malleable and performative as anything else about someone, so ...

Ironically, I didn't actually realize who you were until I saw your picture. The PDN should have been a giveaway, but I was thinking that was a coincidence.

Yep, I saw that shirt on someone else and it was just too perfect for me to not get one. :p

 

I'm not a Stalinist. . . or a Leninist. . . or even really that much of a Marxist, but I am a communist and that is Genuine Soviet Apparel. Not Russian, one of the satellites(The coat is 1969 Romanian or Lithuanian), but it was also way too neat to pass up when I found it.

I have my own small collection of Soviet Memorabilia. Both from Sovietski Collection, and random Estonians on E-bay... etc. My Halloween Costumes usually go something about like this:

Oddly enough I would not consider myself left or right in the American political sense... perhaps something close to centre-right if I really had to pick. But more of a Ross Perot Centre Right, than what we have. Or maybe if we had a party more concerned with people-socialism than corporate and lobby-socialism. Or... well, our mainstream politics are all so bad that it's hard to even cherry-pick. But I'll never get elected on the "Whig" or "Reform" ticket. So I guess I'll just keep waiting for that revolution against two-party system. I do enjoy communism as an ideal but I've never seen a system in practice that I would really want to live under... of course my fascination of it probably stems from a teenage addiction to Command and Conquer.

 

I drive through your town several times a year and I always make sure to stop at Video Game Underground.

You look too adorable with glasses. Also Lillith, you look absolutely gorgeous and I must know where you bought the pants on the last picture of the OP.

 

And because... why not? I wanted to post a photo of me with my "red" hair that only looks red under the sunlight, but I'm too lazy to upload it.

Hey, thanks! It's been a while since I've seen you around here. I hope you've been doing well.

 

I got both of the pairs of leggings in the last two pictures at a place in Portland, Oregon called Sock Dreams.

And I'm doing pretty well, thanks. Just really tired and busy.
