I am pretty, oh so pretty

Thanks to Etienne, who really should get a blog, and who really has Photoshop skills that creep me out, we get the following marriage of Rambling Rhodes and ScratchyMonkey.


You know, my right front tooth is fake, but it's not that dark looking. It's nice to have hair again though.

Oh God - I made the mistake of clicking on the picture to get a closer look. MY EYES ! ! ! ! !

Is the proper response one of attraction and repulsion at the same time?

This would make for a very interesting caption contest.

This is disturbing in so many ways.

Jeez, Derek, you should have known not to gaze directly at the picture. Also I would advise against leaving the image on screen for more than a few seconds, lest it crack your monitor.

And sorry about the tooth, Ryan. My fiddling with the tonal levels to make your face blend in better with the rest of the image had the side effect of exaggerating the contrast between whites and off-whites, thus making your fake tooth look darker relative to the rest of your teeth than it really is. But, I left the pic as is, 'cause dark tooth or not, all who view it are still going to turn to stone.

8 million things about that picture that Etienne could apologize for, and she's sorry about the tooth. . .

You know, it occurs to me that I don't actually know whether Etienne is a "she," I've just assumed that the name is feminine. Etienne, could you confirm your gender?

Posted by: Ryan at April 8, 2005 09:51 AM

My co-worker just informed me that Etienne is French for "Steven," which just feeds my belief that French is a very odd language.

I've just assumed that the name is feminine

Impugning the manliness of my name, eh? Well, I'll have you know that according to Geoff's Gender Guesser, the name "Étienne" has a masculinity index of 6.018. Compare that to "Ryan", which scores a rather girlymannish 2.633. Then again, I'm not sure I should accept numbers from a site that claims the four most masculine names in the world are Bildt, Zuhair, Faruq, and Splodge.

I can't think of a more masculine name than "Splodge."

And, you're right. There are women out there named "Ryan," so I had no right to make assumptions. Apologies extended once again.

I just shot Diet Pepsi out my nose.

It burns.

This is exactly what I was planning to do when I got back from Va. I was hoping nobody would beat me to it but...

Ah well. Another opportunity lost.
