Well, she did only graduate just 5 years ago. Kidding, hon!

My senior photos aren't bad - but there are some really cringe worthy photos of me out there from when I was 14 in 1988 and my parents sent me to, yes, Barbizon Modelling School. Unfortunately, my dad is a graphics guy, so on the occasional christmas or birthday, when I'm least expecting it, one of my presents will be a giant poster of me in a jane fonda spandex workout outfit (With headband!).

Yeah, that picture was from October 1996. You know, I had it easy, big hair was out and I'd had contacts for a long time. :)

OMG! I remember the headband craze. What was that, 1982-3?

you would think. we had to have a "sporty" outfit, and since in my rural cow town, that consisted of baggy shorts and t-shirt, the Jane Fonda outfit was one that I considered suitably glamorous for a Barbizon photo shoot. damn, i was a dumb ass. :)

My senior photo isn't too bad either... unfortunately though, that's not the yearbook I found. Oh well... I'm still planning on changing to my prom picture anyway... it's way funny.

Ok, my yearbooks are in storage far away, but I rounded up a prom photo. Enjoy!

I just snorted diet coke into my sinus cavity, thanks!

There are only two words for you, BME:

BIG HAIR

I will second that sentiment.

I want to thank whomever started this thread. I really had some fantasy that I looked good back then and have really gone to he** since. I feel so much better about my pathetic present-day looks now. So, I am posting here to make my 'entry' official (I did already post once elsewhere with this avatar) and then I think I will 'shut up' for the rest of the week, until we move on to new forms of humiliation.

God, have I changed over the years (and not just my looks). I am not sure it would be possible to recognize me from this picture. I still wear glasses and my mouth still has that lopsided quirk to it. Other than that, it hardly even seems like this could be so much as a blood relative.

Here's my baby picture - circa 1973. I don't have anything else at work. I'll see if I remember something from home.

Well just have to say that, I have been looking at that picture all week thinking that you were pretty darned cute and I am betting that the girls were flocking after you!

( I hope that wasn't to embarassing)

Gawd....I hate that picture. Like I said, it's the last time I didn't have my goatee (I started that as a junior), and I look like such a little kid without it.

Where were people that thought I was cute while I was in HS? ;) I think I had a total af about 10 dates over the course of 4 years back then....

I have a friend who fits that description. He also acts like Jack from Will & Grace, and would probably agree with PlannerGirl that you look nice. ;)
