I have a profile pic!

OK, I'll admit it, I nicked it from someone's blog - they are going to be leaving AdultFriendFinder soon, and it seemed a shame for such a fabulous picture to disappear into the ether.

And I was getting a bit bored of the old shadow thing. Kept bumping into too many other shadows and thinking they were posts written by me when I was drunk and incoherent. Until I realised the names were different.

But I'll be interested to see what difference the new pic makes. Supposedly increases the volume of mail you get. Not that I actually want this, but it will be an interesting exercise: after all, it's not as if the pic is actually of me, nor does it show anything other than a pair of shadowy hands cupping the setting sun. But it's the effect that this has on people's minds/interpretations of me that interests me.

We shall see.

By the way, got the car fixed today, but still waiting for a mirror to fit on the left hand side. The poor mechanic reversed out of the garage absolutely blind because - of course - being French, that's the mirror they rely on. What with the steering wheel on the wrong side of the car and no mirror on the correct side of the car, he fumbled significantly.

I told him I'd come to pick the mirror up on Monday and he was horrified "You can't drive without a mirror on that side!". I laughed and pointed out that at the weekend I drove up to Parc Asterix north of Paris and successfully negotiated the Peripherique Nord without a mirror on that side, so I was sure I would cope for the weekend. I mean, you hardly ever meet another vehicle in this part of the world - we have a road running through our garden, and it doesn't stop the kids playing there.

For those who don't know, the PN is like a cross between the M25 and the North Circular (this reference means more to Londoners than to anyone else), filled with mad Parisian drivers. My friend who drove behind me all the way was absolutely crapping herself at driving it. Certainly not for the faint-hearted, and I avoided overtaking wherever possible, given that I could not be sure I wouldn't have a mad bastard screaming up on the side without a mirror.

Blogito ergo sum.

What, like he expected you to leave the car with him? Just for not having a mirror!!!! He was nuts!!!

We will have to wait and see the pic.

Even more amazing - he let me drive off with the car even though I haven't paid for the repairs yet. They are mad, these French! (so wish I'd given a false address LO.

Nice photo, very cool but I'm not sure if it would attract more mail from people but sure keep a wee eye on it and let us know if it works, maybe we should all try cool pictures like that

Well, I love the pic, it is what brought me here. Maybe I'll reconsider mine.

I love the new pic.

Although the wicked irreverent quirk in my mind wonders how you produced that ball lightning!
