Ramblings: Blast from Someone Else's Past

Jeremy's sister Kashann, had a funny post on her blog where she used this website www.yearbookyourself.com/. I had some fun with it, as you can see. It'll stick your head into yearbook pictures from years over the past four or so decades. The funny thing is, I had some of these hairstyles growing up that were, unbeknownst to me, paying homage to the past---and if I had digital pictures from back then, I'd post the evidence. My mom is laughing right now, because we're both thinking of one particular style that was so horrendous, I still haven't fully forgiven her for allowing our hair lady to perm my hair and cut it so short. Think electrocuted poodle. Now think of that poodle going through the dryer cycle a few times with a stray cat. That is almost as bad as I looked.

I have to say, we would've made one sweet fro'd couple. I would need to get some darker foundation makeup, though.

And the bangs, oh the bangs. Seeing all these big feathered bangs brings me back to the days when a big curled poof lived on the front of my head for so many years. But of course they were the kind that split in the middle--half curled backwards and half forwards. All you ladies know what I'm talkin' about.

Um, I still kind of have this hairstyle, don't I? Just a bit longer. And Jeremy only wishes he had so much chest hair to flash during highschool. I don't think he had to shave till he was 20 (no! not his chest, shave his face).



Gotta love the crispy permed look we all wanted and the guys' Kirk Cameron wanna-be floppy haircut/sweatervest combo.




Now these last three have me cracking up. While I love the middle one rockin' the mullet, I have to say that the other two remind me of Patrick Swayze in his Dirty Dancing days. Something about the eyes maybe? You tell me...

Great! Now I am going to have to redo my eye makeup. I still haven't stopped laughing. Those pics are hilarious. And just for the record, I am still so sorry for the frizzy do and the trauma that was caused by the one and only perm of your life. Really...one was certainly enough to scar you for life. Moms try hard that's all I have to say on the matter.

He really does resemble Patrick!! That is actually what I thought before I read your post under the last three! So does Jeremy like to dance?

Cate just walked up to my computer and said "Grandma".

Those are too funny.

Oh, and I think it's the mouth in the Patrick pics that look some much like the actual Patrick. Those last 3 are the best.

I pulled mine. You guys actually look good in yours. Ours were way too horrid and I was just disgusted by my blog. Too prideful. What a fun activity though huh?
