I'm Flattered

Yesterday I had someone tell me that I reminded him of a Botticelli painting...Birth of Venus to be exact. (He tactfully waited until his wife came in the room to tell me that so that I didn't think it was a pickup line.) In particular it was my coloring and the way I had done my hair. I had an idea of what painting that was but I did google it to be certain. Despite the fact that she is...um...well naked I was terrible flattered and in fact I was in a pretty jovial mood all day because of it.

See the entire painting here...

oh, yeah, that's fun. And you do look a lot like her. Wavy hair, perky boobs and everything!

I chickened out and decided to "tone it down" just a bit... {{blush}}

Oh, THIS Venus post...Luckily, I actually did see this in its entirety. How is removing the awesome picture of yourself part of "toning it down"? I thought you looked awesome in the pic. And, I'm with Christin...I think it was fine! :) haha Although, even with the cropping, I think you still get the gist of the painting...
