Two For Tuesday: Twilight and Turtles. oh my.

Kate Hart
What is it? Post two of anything: book reviews, pictures, quotes, poems, songs, videos, rants, shout outs, whatever floats your boat. Just connect them somehow. That's it.

Today: Photoshop is a dangerous weapon. I have 4 examples, and 2x2=4. Pretty sure. My math skills aren't the best, since, you know, math hates writers.

Anyway, if you've hung around here much, you've probably noticed I have a penchant for Photoshopping things. Particularly Edward Cullen's head onto inappropriate bodies. But sometimes I am also the victim of such shenanigans. Like today.

Okay, "victim" may be an overstatement. This actually made my day.

Why would Cory do such a thing? Maybe because the precedent was set here:
That's writer friends Laurie, Dawn, Cory, me and Deb

I think RPattz and dude-who-plays Emmett are looking down Laurie's shirt. What hoors. But Deb is rockin those shoes.



Meanwhile, my girl Lee created a cover for my sure-to-be blockbuster debut novel: 
HARRY POTTER AND THE DAZZLING ZOMBIE VAMPIRE




But my male BFF still holds the title for best "Photoshop at Kate's expense" ever. When I sent an "everything's okay" email during my first pregnancy, complete with ultrasonic evidence, he hit reply all with this lovely creation and the following note attached.

"Ms. Kate,

I don't mean to cause any alarm... and I may not be a 'doctor,' but it seems pretty evident that you are not in fact having a baby. Rather, it seems that you are in fact having what marine biologists call Chelonia mydas, or the green sea turtle for the lay person. They are also known as 'Honu' pronounced hoe-new in Hawaiian."

He also Photoshopped my head onto a Bud Ice penguin one time in college, but that work of art has been lost. (Although if he read my blog, I guarantee he'd make a new one by the end of the day.)

The moral
When choosing friends, carefully assess their ability to embarrass you via digital photo enhancement.

The end.
