School Picture day

It happens every year... There's no escaping it. And if you thought you escaped it after graduation, all it takes is becoming a teacher to dredge back to the surface some of the most ridiculous, unflattering pictures of yourself. You know, the ones that were printed and labeled in over 1200 leather bound copies each year. An homage to that autographed treasure, here are my yearbook pictures from the good ole days.


I'm sure I was President of FHA...and look at those pearls!


I lost the pearls for my uber fabulous glasses...


Pretty sure this one resulted in an animal rights movement due to the death of whatever small furry creature is on my head.


In the words of Weezer: "Oh oh oh I look just like Buddy Holly"

I had a two page spread with this hair!


Words have failed me. And so has my hair :(


Highly flammable jerri-curls and sky high shoulder pads borrowed from the football team.


This could totally explain global warming. My apologies Mr. Gore.

I can not begin to describe the hours of entertainment provided by this site. Seriously. I don't know who the original models were but they have got to be mortified that these have resurfaced. And lest you think the guys be left out, there are some pretty sweet photo ops for them as well. Now, which of these should I sneak into the yearbook?

I was just watching a depressing Oprah about our economy and you made me LAUGH so HARD! Love all your pics and the captions are priceless. I think I like the tight curl/shoulder pad one, I remember my mom looking like this back in the day..

Fantastic!!!! Class of '82 is my FAVORITE. That's some awesome hair...'94 is a little too close to home though. I graduated a year earlier and even though mine wasn't quite as permed, my hair DID fill the picture. :)

Thanks for your SITS comment today!

I liked you best in '64 but I'm retro that way.

Just say Julie said...

I sent this link out at school today (in an effort to lessen the stress of open house night) with '64 included as my signature. I think all the teachers spent their conference times trying it out.
