Beth Wants You To Know What I Look Like...

...well, not just me, but everyone. Beth is having The Big Wicked Online Pageant where you-

•Scan a photo from your Halloween past.
• Post it on your blog Monday evening, October 28.
• Once you post your photo, e-mail me at the address on the navbar. If you can, include the URL to that specific post.
• I’ll post a link to every participant’s blog Tuesday morning by 9 a.m.So start digging through your archives. Warm up the scanner. Get ready to don your best Halloween masks!

Uh, yeah, well, I don't have any pictures of me in a costume, from back then or even recent ones. I've been wearing pretty much the same costume for decades and I could post pictures of myself in my "unpublished writer guise," but where's the thrill in that?

I told her so and she said "Not even a (costume of The Kid)? I guess we need to keep the secret of your fabulous face so the chickies don't start pestering you."

See, The Kid and I resemble each other to a degree, but that is neither here nor there.

Well, Beth, flattery will only get you halfway there. My uncle gave me back the pictures of me that my grandmother used to have. Here are two of them for Ms. Coffey and for anyone else who is interested-

Now I'll have to set a team of forensic age progression artists to work to get a current likeness.

Inquiring minds want to know!

Or you could become a Facebook friend, which requires a lot less typing and bureaucratic nonsense.

Beth said...

You were cute even then, dude. I'm going to print these out and frame them for my dresser.

Gifted Typist said...

And here I thought you looked like a pill bottle!

Dale said...

What Bubs said, I'm bringing someone in now!

Dude, you are da bomb in that 70's era pic.

BeckEye said...

It's all about the hair.

Cormac Brown said...


You're too smooth.




Didn't I tell you that we were both "all teeth?"


Welcome and stink bomb was more like it.


That was with a haircut, no less. It was bigger and higher than that. It was over a whole foot long more than a few times in my life.

Gifted Typist said...

your old avatar, wasn't it a pill bottle? Maybe I had it wrong all along... gasp.

Cormac Brown said...


My old avatar was me holding a cup saying "Procrastination? It's crack for writers!" That was what was up with the "Write Procrastinator" monniker.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Perfect! I'll bet you wish you still had that outfit, don't you?

Cormac Brown said...


Welcome and uh, no. If there is only one thing I didn't like about the 70's, that was the clothes.

Flannery Alden said...

Wait a minute...are you the guy from Bad Lieutenant's Wife?!? I knew that...just a sec as I add you to my blog roll...

Happy Halloween!

Flannery and Doc

Cormac Brown said...


Welcome and Happy Halloween to you, the good Doctor and the kids!

A sheynem dank.

Gifted Typist said...

Yeah, I got that, but I thought procrastination was your "drug" which was in a pill bottle which was or is still your avatar. Thusly I assumed you looked like or in fact were a pill bottle.

Gifted Typist said...

Ok, i've gone back and looked. It's clearly a coffee cup. I'm blind.
But if you don't look too closely, it could in fact be a pill bottle,

Cormac Brown said...


The Missus, er, Anne, will tell you that you are half-right...I am a pill. Quite a pill.
