A little fill flash would have given you some catchlights in the eyes , maybe a cooler fill, or some gel.  Maybe a more relaxed pose, and a better background.

Apart from that I love the potential, your horizion is level enough and you've showed a considered disreagard for the rule of thirds.

Hey, some of us got the joke even if it went over the empty head of the intended target :P

I'm just here to make sure it's not a photo of me doing something silly. Now that I see it is not me I'll exit, please carry on.

HAHA! Now that Brett knows maybe he can do a shot with Gels and spike up his hair a little and give his skin a little movie star look.

Don't worry, now that Paul gave me advice on how to sober up the next morning when I wake up, I'm sure to be getting liquored up again and taking pictures of myself in the bathroom...............Wait, that sounded wrong.

When shooting a self portrait of yourself and new best friend (the camera), a flash in the mirror is going to be pretty bad. :) (This photo is not of me, by me, or for me)

Pro tip: if you flip the image left to right, it's a little harder to tell it's a mirror photo. (and a cowboy hat helps with any portrait)

Isn't there some saying about a 10 gallon hat on a 20 gallon head?
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Might need a bit bigger hat for that big fat head of mine, you're right.  And oh boy with that cowboy hat, what a chick magnet.
