I really do, despite what my sister and my best friend tell me.
My pics are admittedly crappy. I can blame it partially on poor lighting in my little kitchen, partially on my having a camera with features that are woefully underutilized (I don’t know much about how to use them to get those really gorgeous, drool-inducing shots), and mostly on the fact that my life is busy. I don’t have the time, the room, the right settings or the inclination to spend an hour on getting that perfect shot with the perfect background and the food properly (and perfectly) styled. I know it can take that long because I’ve read up on how to be a better picture taker and blogger. Yes, folks, my dork status is secured.
My hat is off to all those people who have the time and the talent and the inclination to wow us with their photos. I’m envious!
But see, I’m okay with being ‘teh suck’. I’m pretty sure that when you cook, your food doesn’t look perfectly pretty and stylized either. I content myself with the knowledge that while it might not look perfect, it’s going to taste pretty damn good. I live in the real world of eating a cold chicken leg over the sink because I don’t have the time to heat it and put it on a plate with my carefully color-coordinated sides and dining at the table with the placemats and candle holders and other fancy stuff. Like silverware and dishes without the occasional piece of dried food stuck on.
Speaking of reality- something I am fully comfortable rejecting, ignoring, altering, or accepting based on my whims and hormone levels- lets be real about writing.
I’m just me. Sometimes I’m sarcastic. Sometimes I’m obnoxious. Sometimes my humor falls flat. Sometimes I spend an inordinate amount of unnecessary time on some posts, and others I barely give more than the bare minimum.
Okay, so the latter is rare…I’ve been called a wordy b*tch on more than one occasion. Every now and then, the planets will align and it will be double-coupon day and I’ll be at a loss for words.
I make mistakes, multiple typos, I’ll leave thoughts unfinished and participles dangling, even with rewrites and edits.
