A Job For You, Fair Reader.

In the post below are some photos. They are of me, mainly. A prize goes to the person who can spot Euan hiding in one of them.

Which one shall I have as my profile?

I think:

The first one looks stupid, and I look like an idiot. I actually hate that picture loads. I don't know why I would pose like that. Come on, could YOU feel affection for someone who posed like that? No, me neither.

The second one looks like I'm texting. Which I am. That isn't, however, my phone. Which is wherein the confusion lies. At the forefront of the photo is my huge gold ring, which temporarily replaced the sparkly ones.

The third one Euan looks as if he might bite my head off at any given moment, and I look sort of happy about it. I also look a bit squashed. Which I am not, in real life.

Anyway, please tell me which should go up in the corner bit. I know it's not much to choose from.

Two more things:

Thank you, Euan, for doing that. If you ever need a favour from someone whose speciality is being completely and utterly shit at technology, I'm your man.

I am over my break up. It turns out I am way more thick skinned than I thought and don't really care any more. Either that or I'm hugely fickle. Take your pick. Whatever it is I'm feeling miles better.

i have a photo of you sitting on African music legend Youssou NDour's brother's knee with a half empty bottle of champagne in your hand in a posh flat in Notting Hill which I think sums up the complexities of your character in a far more appropriate manner. Can email it....

Ant - I actually sort of do hate it. It's more the smarmy look I have on my face than anything else. Thank you for saying it's lovely, though.

Mark - Please, please email me that photo, if indeed you do have it. I remember that night so clearly. Like it was only seven second ago...

I like the second picture, I think you should use that!

And now if I ever see you walking around Clapham, I can point and stare

I think the second one. It's natural, it's in motion and it's cute.

The third one. It adds an element of confusion and mystery. 'Who is this strange Léonie girl? And why is she so apparently happy that that man is about to eat her head?'

I think it strikes exactly the right tone.

Glad you're feeling better.

I have no idea who this "Euan" fellow is you speak of but that chap in the last photo is jolly handsome.

Hello random stranger. Welcome. Come in from the cold and warm yourself at the blazing blogging hearth.

It is interesting that you should ask about this 'Euan' character, as he is, as he appears in the photo, more than a little deranged. Whenever they take him out on a day out from the asylum I allow him to have his picture taken with me to give him something to treasure and to distract him from all that rocking back and forth, leaping at padded walls and the like.

He is a gentle chap. Just not quite... normal.

I thank you for your enquiry.
