I had new head shots made a couple of weeks ago, and while I had the photographer’s undivided attention, struck a couple of poses just for the fun of it.
Here’s my favorite.
My friends will tell you this has become somewhat of a signature move for me (no matter how ill-advised).
I posted the shot on Facebook today and within minutes, one friend who has a talent for Photoshop quickly added his own editorial spin to the pic not once, but twice:
(What can I say — the guy knows what I like.)
I welcome any other friends of The Egg to post your creations in the comments section. (Note I said ‘friends’…and I do moderate all comments.)
Can’t wait to give your creativity a big thumbs up!

Last night’s season finale of Downton Abbey scored a record 8.5 million viewers.
Holy PBS, Batman!
I’ll mention no spoilers here — for those of you who need copious amounts of time to watch ‘must-see’ television — but let’s just say there were no traffic fatalities this year.
And weren’t ya kinda disappointed?
A friend commented on Facebook that more took place at her place this weekend than in the past eight months at Downton…and she kinda has a point.
Don’t get me wrong — I bought the DVD of Season 4, watched the entire season early, and then re-watched each episode on Sunday night. So clearly I have a high tolerance for tedium.
But after last season’s high drama and multiple deaths, didn’t you think this season ended a bit too neat?

When I was home for Christmas last December, my three nephews were joking about the perils of having their mom and aunts on Facebook and Twitter.
They just never know when we may chime in on something they post.
Today I drove that point home.
I was stuck on the computer all day, working on a project with a tight deadline. When I needed a break, I would check Twitter; my nephew Nathaniel had just posted something every time.
So did I.
Each time I commented on his tweet or posted a tweet in reply, I added the hashtag #AuntsonTwitter. We chatted back and forth for quite a while, having a great time…or so I thought. Then he posted his own hashtag –
Whatever do you think it means??!?!

People are being very thankful today on Facebook, which is nice.
One of my friends gave a shout out to high school teachers, and I couldn’t agree more!
I attended public school, and even during my high school years, my teachers easily spent half of their time disciplining students. Corporal punishment was still enforced back in my day, so lots of students were sent to the principal to get ‘licks.’
But some of the more creative teachers took a different route.
My personal favorite?
I had an English teacher who would stick a kid who was misbehaving behind the bookcase and make them stand there for the rest of the class.
Yep. This actually happened.
One kid — who shall remain nameless — stuck his arms and legs through the shelves and turned the bookshelves over on the rest of the classroom.
Come to think of it — that was the last time I saw her use that method.

If you watched Conan last night — or this morning on DVR like me — you saw his interview with astronaut Colonel Chris Hadfield, who recently retired after his return from a six-month stint on the International Space Station.
While he was there, he conducted experiments on the impact of low gravity on human biology.
But that didn’t score him a guest shot on Conan.
No, Hadfield used Twitter and Facebook to chronicle life on the space station in video and pictures. In fact, his cover of David Bowie has received over 18 million hits on Youtube.
Let’s add a few more.
