My HS yearbooks are all packed away at my parents house in ATL. Does college yearbook work?

I don't have access to a scanner.

Plus they are really bad, especially Grade 9.

Dude,

How to you expect people to get ahold of a digital copy of their yearbook photo?

Sorry I won't be posting any here. My yearbooks moved around from place to place, often not even bing unpacked before the next move, and often stored in damp places. Looking over their moldy hulks, I tossed them in the recycling bin a few years back. I'll see if I can find a "period" photo to substitute.

HA! no yearbook photos, but I can dig up period stuff. The Yearbooks were burned I think. By me. Hated HS with a passion.

I just happen to have some of those.
That was PROM photos, Mike. Not PORN photos. Just want to be sure you read that correctly. ;)

I don't have any prom photos, i ended goingstag and getting really drunk.

The one good thing about grade 13 was that most people where legal to drink by the end of the school year.

Our "prom" was on a boat with a bar, it was not organized or sanctioned by teh school because of the possibility for drinking.

Prom here is the biggest thing ever, limosines, party buses, expensive dresses and suits.

Might be hard for me to get those pics. They're in storage far away. Maybe for the best though...I might have had to unleash...(collective gasp from all)...the MULLET!! Yeah, I'm not proud of it, but I had one. It would seem these days that the party has spread from back to front. Not sure where the business end went.

The Juniors hired the band that the HS band director was a member in order to suck up. I don't recall that the band was bad, they just played a lot of Chicago which I hated at the time. So several of us dateless losers road tripped to Clear Lake and visited the famous strip club. Ahhh 17 year olds in a strip club, I miss the 70's

ah, thanks for reminding me to burn them ;)
The photos suck a$$, and the general class photo ain't better... I bet the moronic photographer picked the one he took when nobody was expecting it...

Slightly OT:
Mabye we should do a baby photo avatar week ;)

...but if you cant laugh at yourself..

I can laugh at myself, but it is much more fun to laugh at others.

Thankfully we don't have a scanner.

Did every guy who went to high school during the 1980s know a hot girl named Deena? Seems like whenever I look through any 1980s-era yearbook of any school, there was always some gorgeous, feather-haired Deena gracing the senior class pages. And ... whrere are all the Deenas today? The Jennifers and Lisas and Kristens are put there in abundance, but what about the Deenas?

Some typical Deenas.






Okay, so ... what did you look like?

BUSTED. International Thespian Society Charter Member at my high school. But I never did a musical. OK thats a lie. I never did anything other than a big chorus that could mask my horrible voice, in a musical.

Chet, those glasses are classic! Although they do look like Jeffrey Dahmer's.

I will try to scan my photo tonight. I am in the process of moving, so I may have to dig around a bit.

I think I'm going to switch over to my prom picture some time this week... it's so funny. It's the one and only time my mom got to have her way making me all girly. It's worth a good laugh.

That's my second Jeffrey Dahmer look alike reference in two days. Hey, if Elvis impersonators can sing and make money, I ought to be able making money by.... scratch that thought.

Maybe I could just do book signings...

Did'nt everyone who wore glasses during the 80's have a pair of those? I wore that general style well in to the 90's (97).

We used to call those "rapist glasses" usually worn by those who drove around in the white "child molester" vans with no windows.

I think you look like a cross between Peter Brady and a "young" Paul McCartney. But maybe that was just your thespian disguise...

I'll take that as a back-handed compliment. But Paul McCartney never wore his polo collar flipped up to my knowledge.

Nor did he have an awesome pair of black and white striped zubas with matching black and white stripped canvas shoes. (sorry gays)
