Day One: Self Portrait

I've joined in on SoFawned.com's 30 Days Hath November for inspiration. I've been sick for nigh 2 months and it hit an all new level of ick so feel pretty much blah. I need a little outside motivation.
Today is Self Portrait day, which is a hoot 'cause there's no way you're going to see what death-warmed-over Caren looks like.
Instead you will see a hidden under-many-blankets sickhead Caren and a cute lambie:
