Does this nose make my octopus look fat?

“Telling yourself you like the way you look is easy. 
Believing it is an entirely different kettle of whales.”

 --Andrew Biss, The Impressionists

Self portrait 5-4-13

Face it.
There are days.
Days when makeup doesn't help.
Days when masks won't work.
Days when dark glasses don't cut it.
Days when the thought of answering the door is out of the question.
Days when another self portrait is, well, unthinkable.
Days when I feel so unattractive, so un-photogenic that there is really only one solution.
Put an octopus on my face and forget about it.

*no octopuses were harmed in the making of this self portrait.
