This old Mom is loving The Age Project right now!
If you haven't checked out any of my blogroll links, this button above is from The Age Project, and it has me smiling today. I just passed---ugh--41 in April, and according to the folks over there, I look 30! I choose to accept that reality as preferable to my own.
Here's how The Age Project works (this isn't a sponsored post, it's just a cool site!): You make an account with the old username and password drill, and then you post a pic of yourself. I deliberately chose one that wasn't especially flattering, one where I had my hair pulled back messily and no makeup. That's a very scary thing to do, post a pic of yourself, because what happens next is people look at that pic and try to guess how old you are. I imagine if you are 18 and someone guesses 21, you actually feel pretty good ("Hey, now I won't get carded!"). And I am feeling good today as a result of my rating. But it could just as easily go the other way, and people could think I am fifty or something, so that's why it's scary.
And liberating. Go do it!
