Murrin retains his youthfull good-looks year on year with an almost un-nerving degree of 'Dorian Gray' like cpapacity.

I have no camera [or mobile phone, I-Pad, Pod or Pid], no 'eye' in my lap-top or knowledge of how to post a photo or a link to it, even if I had the means to go digital - so I will describe myself instead. I'm 5' 7", about 230lb, wearing a stained M&S dog-tooth check shirt, worn brown chinos and cordouroy slippers. My hair is silver and about 2 inches long [just covering the tops of my ears] sitting on top of a round, slightly florid face. My glasses [brown-rimmed narrow framed] sit ontop of a nose, neither large or small, turned up or pointed. In profile I'm a bit 'chinless', like [in fact very like] one of those images of roman emporers you see on roman coins. My eyes, neither sunken or protruberant are evenly sized and [I think] well spaced, lending neither craftiness [too narrow] or stupidity [to wide] to my countenance. They are blue, but today a bit red and yellowish as a result of exesses comitted over the Christmas and New-Year. They sit under bushy grey eyebrows that are way too long and in need of a controlling crop. My lips are neither fleshy nor thin, but the corners do tend to turn down a bit as a result of my 'bite' [I tend, as a bad habit, not out of deformity, to close my mouth with my lower teeth outside my upper [all still my own], thus pushing forward my lower jaw {perhaps psychologically to overcome the smallness of chin I mentioned above - I've never thought of it before} and pulling down the corners of my mouth] My New-Years resolution will be to stop this.] My countenance is one of stern-ness, but I am not wrinkled and I am clean shaven. If you had to think of a celebrity to 'pin my features' most closely too it would be....hmmm.......I'll have to get back on that one.

[nb The humour absent in my face can on occasion be evident in my eyes.]

What the heck.

I haven't uploaded a pic in years.
I probably shouldn't be doing this at work though. Don't tell anyone.

I dunno lorin; I think some people would be intimidated. Wink

For starters, you have the signature "I am that which emerged from the fire" under your portrait.
The set of your chin and jaw give you a determined, no-nonsense look.
And then there are auburn flames..

Umm, please tell me if you would rather I had just shut up instead of saying that...

ahhhhh now I get it. Well the chin is swollen after my little face lift. I am trying to get used to the new face in the mirror. Feels weird. And I was never a fan of seeing my own face to begin with.

Mostly pointing out the serious expression Wink

I've noticed that it's actually common in other parts of the world for people to not smile for the camera. Photos are serious business!

one of the days, I hope to give you a compliment that you don't find a way to "wiggle away from" so easily..

On the other hand, I generally enjoy seeing my friends' faces more than my own.
So I can sorta get that part.

Foamfollower a couple of replies up ought to post a sound file of recorded laughter as a part of the ensemble. Razz

Here's a better one to compensate for the snot-and-cough picture. Wink Frosty and K. acting as if 30 years younger (no booze involved!).
