    Hard to know if it’s a good likeness, but if you like it a suspect it must be.
    BTW, do you draw yourself as you appear in the mirror, or take a photo and work off that? Idle curiosity just to know which side your pink streak is in real life. If that makes sense.

      I take a picture and then copy it, so the streak is on my left side (right, if you look at me).

      As far as people drawings go, I only ever draw myself because I’m afraid that if I draw others and it doesn’t end up perfect (or they think it doesn’ t look like them at all) I’m doing them injustice and would feel horrible about it, so I’m too nervous to even try. But it does look pretty much like me. That’s what I see when I look in the mirror (with the exception that I never really smile at myself in the mirror like that, LOL, and except that I see it the other way around of course).

      😛 bunny teeth. I’d probably need braces, but I absolutely abhor the idea of anyone messing around in my mouth, so I think I’m stuck with the teeth. :-/

        I can understand that plus braces are expensive!!!! I had braces but you can still tell my front teeth are larger and stood out at one point.

        My sister doesn’t want braces because she’s fine with her teeth. The idea that we all need perfectly straight (and white teeth) is created by society. If your teeth chew your food then you’re good to go 😛

          Yeah, braces are darn expensive. Plus, I’d no way in hell want the glue-on-ugliness brackets, but only something unflashy like the invisalign braces (given I’d not mind people doing things with my mouth so much in the first place) which would make it even more expensive, probably. So no braces for me. And you’re right, as long as they chew my food fine (well, and not stick out at odd angles maybe 😉 ) I’m good. 🙂

            I think the invisalign braces are for teeth that are fairly alright as is but I don’t know. I had the metal mouth and a head gear that I worse only at night to being my jaw forward. Are you telling me that you wouldn’t want pink elastics on your brackets?!?!? You could have a pink mouth!!! 😛 Yes, I did coordinate my elastics with holidays and how I felt that day!

              Pink elastics are tempting… but no, not in my mouth. 😛 But I can imagine it can be fun to coordinate the elastics with what day it is. (If probably more fun if you don’t HAVE to wear the braces all the time… it sounds like the kind of fun that gets old after a while.) I guess I can live with the buck teeth.

    Your teeth are fine. Braces are overrated. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it 🙂

      I like that! 🙂 (And no way would I ever go to sit it a chair where someone puts their fingers in my mouth only to fit braces! Checkups are horrible enough.)
