Shut Up, Airport Worker Man

On the left, please find my passport photo, taken back when I was Scarlett Johansson.  On the right, a Visa Photo I had to have taken in New Zealand so I could travel throughout Southeast Asia.  After ten tries and a really dumb lady photographer I was getting pretty irritated.  Plus tired?  I don't know.  The point is...cram it, every Passport-Stamping-Customs-Staff-Member who has ever had me come through their line.  They look at my passport, then at me, then back at my passport, and then they say (yes, they ALL say it):
"You shouldn't have cut your hair."



My drivers' license photo is almost identical to the one on the left.  And, since today is my b-day, I have to renew my license and get a new photo.  Crap.  As far as taking good photos, well...it's like Summer would say.  "You're not very good at this."

Same thing happens everytime I use my passport as well, Kady. Specifically the same guy at JFK. Short hair just doesn't photograph as well as long in those crummy DMV places. My new MN driver's license isn't bad. Just wear a lot of eye makeup.

The customs guys are right you should grow it back

Oh yeah, crewneck t-shirts are another no-no for id photos. Especially with short hair. I got my photo taken at a pharmacy on my way home from work. I have that crazy-lady frizz going on so no one ever blinks when I go through the line.

That girl on the show Community reminds me of you in your long hair. Except you're not quite as bug-eyed as she is.
