In person, I'm OK with it. In looking at a photo, not so much. I don't know what it is about the camera - it seems to add 20 pounds just like it does to actresses.
We had some friends over last night, and the one comment was "it looks like an ironing board", which is correct, it does! I didn't think that I was pouring a lot of time on a a piece that looks like something you buy at Target for 12 bucks. But apparently I have. Oh well - I'll continue on but I'm convinced that I need to cut down the long end to minimize the old ironing board effect. Originally I thought it would be nice to have some asymmetry going on, but maybe that isn't a good thing.
