Perhaps egomania isn't the exact word I'm looking for, but the photobooth application for my MacBook Pro makes me want to take photos of myself while I'm idling away in front of my computer like a complete dork. To boot, no thanks to Crap Artist, Piter Wilson's Web-cam-stop-motion-thing makes me want to take moving .gifs of myself while I'm idling away in front of my computer like a complete dork. Folks who post photos like these at a non-stop rate have always irritated me, but recently I've fallen into straight hypocrisy with the various me-media movements that include self-portraiture, v-blogging, and all the rest. Ay yah, what have I become!
Has my value system surrounding online egoism deteriorated since I left the supple bosom of liberal arts education? Is my newfangled boy-short haircut just too chic to ignore between the times I fuss with it in the bathroom? Am I too obsessed with establishing my 'personal brand'?
As made evident by the following photo, taken early this morning while I was letting the hot coffee brew in my brain, chances are I'm just bored. And silly. And I guess I want you to know about it.
