A Vote-UPDATED

This week I joined MySpace and Facebook at the urging of some friends who participate in one or the other. If you ask me to join Twitter, I will decline because 1) I still am not certain I understand what it actually is and 2) it would likely be the final step to hurl me so far down the internet rabbit hole I may never be seen in my real life again.

Anyway, I decided it was time to try to ignore the weight situation (Yes, I am still on the stupid diet) and take a current picture of myself for the sole purpose of plastering it all over the internet in bloggy, myspace, facebook, goodreads profiles. I attempted it this morning and while I can't say I love any of the pictures, I have come up with two that I can live with.

So pick one for me bloggy friends. And trolls, please be kind. My self esteem is a fragile thing these days.

Choice A
Choice B
The Man has expressed his vote, but I'll hold off on telling you what it is. And yes, the fabulous Nikki cut my hair again last week. But I actually paid her this time. Imagine that.

Update
Well, obviously picture A won. I will now confess that The Man also preferred picture A and I was leaning towards picture B because I thought it better represented my personality. In fact he thought picture A so far superior he couldn't imagine anyone would vote for B. So thanks to those of you who did, for not making him completely unbearable. I am going to go with the masses on this one though, at least for now.

For the record, The Man also thought this whole blog post was a bit vain. Perhaps he was right about that too. But I'll never admit it.

I like the first one best. And I like the haircut! :)

karen said...

Great haircut! I think you look cute in both (downright impish in choice B), but my fav is choice A.

NeldaBelle said...

Joy, I really like the second one the best! Shows lots of personality!

cute hair!

they are both fun, but like seeing your full face in option a

Laurel Wreath said...

I am going to have to vote A, I like both, but your hair is covering your one eye in the second one (hiding your beautiful face) =)

spaz said...

Love the haircut! I vote for Choice B.

Bea said...

Choice A! I love the profile shot. I can see how people like the impish personality in the second one (though I think the dreaminess of the first one is personality-full too), but I find the hair over the eye thing distracting.

Lynn Stallworth said...

L-O-V-E your hair! It looks awesome! I vote for A as well. It's a really pretty picture!

Karen said...

B hot and impish at the same time.

Leslie said...

I REALLY like both of them! In A, you look really sweet and soft. In B, you look kind of edgy -- like your writing is sometimes.

Trenches of Mommyhood said...

I vote for A.
I actually just joined Facebook last night--how random!

Wendy said...

I think you look great! I like the first photo better, though. I am probably going to get John to take one of me as well. (All of my recent photos were taken by one of the kids so they're either not very flattering or blurry.) I haven't had a cute haircut in a while, though.

Kyla said...

B!

PS: Find me on Facebook. And you know, on Twitter when you cave. I certainly did. LOL.

Kathryn said...

You have a beautiful profile! I think you have the nose I've always wanted. hehe And nice teeth too! Definitely #1! Pretty lady!!! Woohoo!

Chrissy said...

It looks like A has already won, but I wanted to add that the haircut is adorable.

Kandy Gibson said...

I am really late seeing this, but I have to say, BEAUTIFUL! Love the hair and face. You are so much braver than me exposing your photo. As far as the self esteem, you have nothing to worry about! Show it off because you look fabulous!

Chaotic Joy said...

Kandy,
You are SO sweet. Can you send me an email? I am dying to catch up with you.
Joy

I am in the minority (as usual!) but I have to say I prefer choice B, as it seems more "you". =)

Love your 'do! It's funny...I'm (obviously) late to the party, but I would've voted for B! Both are darling, though...
