Drink Kendra Drink, where I chronicled everything I drank for a year by taking photos and noting who was with me, where I was, what candy it made me crave--okay maybe not that last one--and exactly what it was I drank. It was like alcoholic narcissism on crack. It was also a really interesting experiment but hard to keep up with.
For one, a lot of the time I'd lug around an actual camera with me for the photos (note the flash in the mirror behind us) because this was waaay pre-iPhone for me. For another, it was sometimes embarrassing taking pictures with every cocktail I drank. I mean, it was full-tilt obnoxious. I skipped a drink on a plane a couple of times b/c I didn't want to have to selfie with a tiny vodka bottle. But, the main reason it was kind-of a terrible idea was that keeping the website updated was a pain the ass. If I were doing it today, I'd just make an Instagram and a Tumblr for it and update everything at once in seconds. Oooh, with pretty filters. I remember one of the rules of the project was 'No Vanity Do-Overs' on the pics so those filters would've come in handy when I had scary-face, which was, like 8 out of 10 pics. I learned from that project that I am NOT photogenic and that it's OK. I also learned that I drank way too much beer. (I love you, vodka.)
One pal titled this photo "Hipster American Gothic." I thought I was giving bored blank face but I actually look homicidal so I would call as "Creeps in Cardigans." Cheers!
