Graven Image

NOTICE-THIS IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TONGUE-IN-CHEEK BLOG.

I was thinking the other day that I have made contact here in bloggerland with many fine folks over the years. I follow a gaggle and google of blogs that interest me in one way or another. Some are political. Some are personal. Some are downright hilarious, or all three.

It occurs to me that I really don't know what a large majority of you look like. Oh I know a few faces...a couple of which I have gone to great lengths to conceal from my daughters...I don't want to possibly permanently scar their young minds. But, you know who you are.

In the spirit of transparency and openness, I have decided to at last reveal my likeness to my fellow bloggers. I understand if you don't want to reciprocate...I have a strong imagination.

The photo I've decided on is one of my favorites because it was taken of me in my now defunct boat, when I lived in Baja Florida (to cop a phrase from Mr. Charleston, the teller of tall tails ((sic)) ). Admittedly, the photo is 14 - 15 years old, but hey my brain is still there...my sagging, gravity ravished body notwithstanding.

I have also included a video clip of an associate of mine. OK, I don't know the dude, but we have similar interests, and I've been told I look a lot like him, so I felt it was appropriate.

Here then for any and all to see...is...moi (autographed copies will be available at a later date, ladies).

I'd always assumed you looked like a celebrity!

Chimp said...

I knew you were very intelligent and the large peepers and the large rectangular cranium proves my point. The big eyes and the big head also reminds me a bit of E.T. Is this "contact" time?

mo.stoneskin said...

You're just as handsome as we all imagined. Careful with that cigarette though, I hear that paper-bag-heads are definitely and dangerously combustible.

jadedj said...

Bob---It's a cross one has to bear.

Chimp---I am not at liberty to say, but if I were you, I'd abandon the clay mountain model...obtain a AAA road map, and locate a certain national monument in Wyoming, post haste.

Mo---I gave up the weed 10 years ago...after the accident. Unfortunately, many unkind people refer to me now as ol' "two-bagger". Such is life.

Mr. Charleston said...

Just as I thought, a closet TEA BAGGER! And that's Baja Georgia to you boy.

jadedj said...

Senor C---Them's fightin words el dude-o. Lucky for you that I am better known as the Doctor of Love and peace and like that there. And for your pipe...in Baja Florida, "Baja Georgia" is known as, El Norte con gringo gringos...smoke that pal.

Punch said...

What's with the BaJa? It is Floria.
F-L-O-R-I-D-A.
What is so hard about that.
Guess I missed something.
Nice bag, good crisp creases.

the walking man said...

Dude you look like some women from my past. I may have dated some of your relatives. Or I may have eaten greasy french fries from your head.

Bucko (a.k.a., Ken) said...

Gives new meaning to paper or plastic.

jadedj said...

Punch---Read my words...South Florida...immigrants...Cuba...Latin America...Spanish speakers...C, (who is non-latin of Engrish descendents), calls North Florida Baja Georgia...see? Nevermind...I don't want to overtax your cognizant skills. There are no "...for Dummies" books covering this.

Crisp creases and fine manila paper run in the family...except for my brother...he got the plastic genes.

wm---I'm cool with that. I never inquire into my sister's dating fantasies.

That grease was Brylcreem...almost as tasty as lard.

Bucko---And talking heads.

Punch said...

Yo, try to find a white boy, girl, man, or woman to mow your yard.
For less that $100 a month, twice during winter and 4 time, at $500 a month during summer (growing season) with, ya know, fertilizer, and all, (careful of the quanities), bubba.
Ok so, Once you have the one year (min) contract, cool, look out the window and see the nationality of the person doing the work. If you are lucky, there might be one white one. Watch he, she, it go at it, they will weed whack your Buttercups and puke, the morning booze in the nearest corner of your yard.

Hey I'm just one guy. But maybe I need a bag for my head.

BTW, I signed a two year landscape contract with yo' sister, to 'take care' of my lawn. She has a great, new white bag. Very cool.

What does A&P stand for?

jadedj said...

Punch---Contract? White? Puke? What the hell are you talking about? I mow my own yard, for zero plus gas per month, and I am Barry White, but with a mixed soul. Yazsir.

I'll send you a bag...I'm thinking, sandwich size.

A&P = Alzheimer's and Punch.

Sue said...

just what I imagined, absolutely adorable! Nice hands too, I always look at a mans hands, hey it's what turns me on...

jadedj said...

Sue---Russian hands and Roman fingers.

Sue said...

Ooooooh La La!! :-)

jadedj said...

Sue---Don't get all Franchie on me now.

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

I'm from Texas we don't ever talk about anyone's mama..besides that I like it here a lot..will be back..thanks for coming by and saying howdy..

becomingkate said...

Well, now I feel kinda let down :(

jadedj said...

Yellowdog Granny---And my mom never talked about Texas. I'm glad you made it over here and didn't lose your dinner in the process...of course I'm assuming that.

kate---What...you don't like the hands? Being the egotist that I am, and given my overly developed male pride, here is one of my older posts from a year or so ago...it contains this very photo...sans grocery bag (be strong...please don't lose your din din). http://jadedj-banquetofconsequencestoo.blogspot.com/2009/01/devil-weed.html

Punch said...

I can't make the link work, and more to the issue? I'm reading Old News?

Punch said...

What are you some kind of Hollywood hack. Don't write new scripts, just re-shoot the old with new broads, and sweet pretty things?
Hey I could be wrong.

jadedj said...

Punch---the link wasn't meant for you aholeo.

the link should be:

http://jadedj-banquetofconsequencestoo.blogspot.com/2009/01/devil-weed.html

Sue said...

well the link worked for me you cute son of a bitch! lol,

congrats on the kicked habit!

jadedj said...

Sue---Thank you, but keep in mind that even though that photo was taken in the famous Bermuda Triangle, time still respects no cute sums of bitches...especially 15 years out.

Yeah, me and the weed are no longer on speaking terms.

Stephen said...

I have seen you around, lurking in Portland. You really get around.

jadedj said...

Stephen---I have this thing for cement. It's a heavy burden I have to bear.

Harlequin said...

You remind me of someone.... never mind.... it'll come to me eventually.

nice set up;
died laughing at the comments;
will use aholeo again soon.
such a helpful site you have!

jadedj said...

Harlequin---Well at least you didn't say, an ex-hubby.

Aholeo...use it wisely. I am assuming you don't really need to use it at your place...unless of course a certain gnome from Florida visits.
