I always tend to think about my posts as I get ready for work in the morning. I've known for a while that I wanted to do a Foto Friday post but I've been busy and, until now, it just hasn't happened. As I thought about it one word came to mind: Rad. I thought, this is going to be one rad post. Followed quickly by the thought: wow, when was the last time I actually used the word rad in a sentence? And thus the idea for Flashback Foto Friday began as I took a trip down memory lane this AM.
What types of things did I pass on my drive through the good 'ole days?
*My sister and I on rollerskates in the garage choreographing dances to Paula Abdul's "Cold Hearted Snake". Come on, you know you know the words.
He's a cold hearted snake, look into his eyes, oh no, he's been telling lies. He's a lover-boy at play...Wow. Good stuff. Too bad there wasn't a career in roller skate choreography because we were all over it.
*Atari and more specifially Q-bert. I loved Q-bert. It rocked.
*Reading Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. Loved those books. And wasn't there a series involving two sisters? Sweet Sixteen or something? I can't remember the name but I was really into them and always imagined myself as the brainy, dorkier one...
*I had a horrible outfit with black pants and an attached pink skirt with black hearts. I loved it and when I wore it I thought I looked totally cool. It was hideous. My poor mother. I never wanted to take it off.
*Sideways pony tails and those t-shirt clips that bunch your shirt on the side. Wow. It was special and yes, I rocked them both. At the same time.
*Rolled up jeans. That roll was tough too, you had to get it just right and nice and tight at the bottom. Alot of work went into the rolled up jean phase. And don't forget your Keds.
*My first kiss as the Extreme song "More than words" played in the background. It wasn't a good moment but I still love the song. The boy, however, not so much. He pushed me down and tried to kiss me, it was totally gross. Ahhhh....how times change. *grin*
And for your entertainment this Friday, an entertaining pic of yours truly from back in the day:
Apparently I knew that bow-headband was a horrible idea.
And another one:
I feel the need to apologize to my sister for this one. Wow. And yes, I'm the one on the right and this was my "perm" phase.
And because the above two were hideous:
My girlfriend and I before prom. If I had professionals style me at all times things would go much smoother....
And now, time for work! TGIF!
So what about you? What memories have stuck with you??? What things do you remember or what things make you wonder WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?
