The Word of the Year Named Today by Oxford Dictionary..."Selfie"

Oxford dictionary defines "Selfie" as: "(n.) a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website."

When I heard that on the news this morning, I thought I'd try it.  It's not as easy as it sounds.  It was easier for me to take it in the mirror. 

Holding it in front of me just didn't work too well... I'm confident my hands weren't shaking....it must be a flaw with my iphone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All of the "selfies" were blurry!!!

For some reason, you are one of the last people I would envision taking a "selfie"!  I literally laughed out loud (in a good way) when I saw this picture!  You look great by the way!

Looking good Barbara. I don't take many selfies. Usually it's when I have a cute hat or something that I want to blog about and no one else is around to take the photo.

Barbara: Selfie! A new word coming out of a technical world that is ever changing. Could selfie endup as aslang word or become a household word. If it catches on than take credit for it.

Looking great and so happy! I don't mind selfies. I think it's a great thing people have photos of themselves looking like they want to look, when they want to have them. I could do without all the duck faces, but it's nice to have a visual chronical of one's life. I'm sure we'll all be laughing about this craze in 20 years or so :)

That's a great one Barbara!!  I never can take selfies, although I did once in 2008 when I was suffering with my leg injury.  (it was a nelfie, because I felt so ugly and it really came out rather artistic and nice).  Shhhhhh . . .

Lol, Barbara, I think a selfie of me would be best in the mirror also - like Margaret said, my arms are short as well.
