You asked for it.

With all the kind comments people have sent regarding the wedding photo I posted earlier, I was beginning to feel guilty for deceiving you all. As penance, I offer these less flattering images.

In this photo it looks like I'm wearing a bustle UNDER my dress. I used to think that my rear end exemplified what the kids nowadays call "junk in the trunk," but now that I have consulted the Urban Dictionary, I realize that in fact I have an "SUV in the pants."

With all of the trouble I had concerning the bodice, I never even noticed that my skirt didn't fit. The more I look at this photo, the more surprised I am that nobody tried to rest a wine glass on my behind during the reception.


The conversation just prior to the taking of the photo below went something like this:

Calamity Jen (to photographer): Aw come on, don't be taking photos of us while we eat. Please?

Photographer: Just pretend I'm not here.

Calamity Jen: That's a little difficult when you're only two feet away.

Photographer: Okay, okay. [Lowers camera]

Calamity Jen: Thanks, I appreciate that. After all, why would anyone want a photo of this? [Feigns eating like a pig]

Camera: Snap!



Not exactly the picture of beauty and grace

you kill me!! I personally think the photo of your suv is not as bad as you think. (I have no comment on your eating habits...)

You are way to harsh on yourself! I think you're gorgeous.

It was a Danish/Polish wedding, so I was probably eating a pickled-herring pierogi.
