say cheese

I have to admit, I don't mind my current driver's license picture. It is off center and my forehead looks kind of big and shiny, but it is not too bad as far as driver's license pictures go.
I haven't had to get a new DL in probably 10 years. I don't know why, I just haven't had to. Last time, I got to renew online. The State of Texas has come out with fancy new licenses, which I don't have yet. But apparently I will. I got a notice that I have to renew my license IN PERSON. I tried to cheat and do it online but it wouldn't let me. It said I MUST report to my nearest DPS office.

Well, now I have a driver's license that has been expired for a week for three reasons:

1. It is going to take hours to sit at the DPS and get it renewed.

2. I need to go to the eye doctor first. I'm not sure if I'm required to say I wear corrective lenses if I just wear a contact to sleep in?

3. More importantly, I know it is shallow, but I really need to wait for a day that my hair looks good.

I guess there is an upside.... no matter how the new picture turns out, it can't possibly be any worse than my passport!
YIKES! (my only consolation is that this is probably what I look like after being on a plane for 10+ hours.)

Ha! Your facial expression (passport photo) looks like you are conveying the message of "I don't give a bleep."
Yet you mange to still look beautiful.

Oh Rachel, you always look great! Of course I've never woken up next to you! ha ha They did that new picture thing to me after who knows how many years this last renewal. I guess there's a time limit? But the old one didn't look like me at all (like I look now I mean) to the point that store clerks would look at it, look at me, look at it....

Babe, you're sweet. You're just saying that because you saw how I REALLY look after 10 hours on a plane!
