Kristen Wiig thinks I'm a caveman

So I met Kristen Wiig on Wednesday night. Everything started off pretty good - I talked with her about her awesome shark t-shirt and she seemed like a nice person. My wife and I wanted a photo with Kristen so I busted out my 35mm disposable camera (which I had from a snowboarding trip last week) and commented on how "old school" I am for using outdated technology. After posing for the picture (seen below) our friend Julie asked me to take a photo of her with Kristen. The problem is that I didn't know how her damn phone/camera hybrid worked and I came off looking like a freaking Neanderthal.

While trying to take a photo I held the camera backwards and, ignoring the cries from Kristen to turn it around, I promptly took a picture of my own face. Dazed by the flash that had just seared my eye sockets from less than an inch away, I turned the phone over and tried again. Of course, at this point the flash needed to recharge so I had one of those awkward moments where I held the camera, promising the two that the photo would be snapped any second while they waited for what seemed like an eternity. Eventually Kristen asked "did you take it yet?" to which I stammered, "uh, I don't know, I think so." I guess I shouldn't feel that bad. It's not like I majored in art/photography in college. . . .
