A few sandwiches short of a Picnik.

Come on in,

My lovely mate Sarah has a tendency to introduce me to new, technological-type thingies, have you noticed? She is full responsible for both my blog and Twitter problems.

Me, I luuurve Sarah. The Man, maybe not so much.

Whatever. Yesterday, Sarah introduced me to Picnik. For the uninitiated, Picnik is kind of like PhotoShop for morons. Which means it suits me down to a tee.

It’s probably a good thing I didn’t find it last week. Or my Bloggers Without Makeup piccie may just have looked like this.

No, I’m joking. I wouldn’t have, I promise. Really. Maybe.
But, hey, everyone was saying “Oh my, Lori, what big blue eyes you have!!” (It’s my first go with the liquifier, people, be polite.)

And this next one is in answer to the hundred or so emails I get every week asking how I used to wear my grease paint as a clown. Enjoy!*

Cute, yes? YES? Yuh, that’s what I thought too.

*OK, OK, if you must know, yes, that’s bullsh*t. No one’s ever asked. Which I find very surprising, frankly. It’s OK, I don’t hold it against you. But you see I was actually having some kind of FauxPhotShop orgy and got to being… well.. stupid. And I miss wearing grease paint. But that is how I actually used to do it. Not too scary, very girly- much awesomeness!!

Shhhhhh, stop telling everyone or the entire blogging community's husbands are going to be out to get me!!

I disagree – that grease paint IS scary, clowns are scary, and i may never be able to look at you the same way again.

Or not. I'll get over it. But i stand by the clowns are scary bit…

ROFL! Oh no, I think I'm going to have to get me some Picnik! That second picture makes you look like Puss from Shrek. Will that "bigness" features work on my boobs? Because people are always telling me what big blue boobs I have.

Still trying to tame the beast that is photoshop. Having all kinds of fun with my severed head but bloody hell, is it complicated.

Awesome! I love the grease-paint one!

Is it free? Because I feel the need to do graffiti. Only, you know, without paying anything. I'm CHEAP THAT WAY.
