I first saw this picture this morning around 8:30. it's taken me 2 hours of internal debating on whether to post it or not. Sweet Carolina Bunny (Your new southern name is now Bunny Sue by the way) tags every blog post with "To blog is a self invasion of privacy". I agree with that and see many different levels to the openness where some tell you very little and some invite you into their lives with reckless abandon censoring nothing. (ahem... :))
However, while this picture brings back many memories of the friends I had back in high school, I still feel a pain in my chest looking at it.
WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME ABOUT THAT HAIR???
Good GOD! Thank God someone finally turned me on to conditioner and a better hair stylist.
Yeah, that's me... the dork in the hat. I'm just one Molly Ringwald away from being Anthony Michael Hall in Sixteen Candles. Sadly I think I'm closer to Molly Ringwald with that hat. "A boy in a hat is... so Vogue!"
Off topic from this post, but writing that last line made me remember a little story from college. When I was at Clemson I was at a party that a fellow bar staffers Alene was holding. One of her friends from her home town (Girl X) was visiting and this home town girl was dating Michael Anthony Hall. The little group conversation was about movies that started moving toward Oscars. This is, no lie, a snippet from the conversation.
Girl X: Oh the Oscars. I really wanted to get to go! Anthony got an invite since he was in (insert nameless movie here)
Alene: Is he not going to take you?
Girl X: We're not going at all. He said he wasn't going to attend the Oscars until he won one himself and now I'll never get to go!
I wish I had such a supportive partner like THAT!
