NaBloPoMo - profoundly bershon

Yesterday I bought Z a cherry pie and used all his resulting goodwill to make him scan all the pictures of my family I had lying around, so I anticipate a photofest around here for the next week.

So before I start showcasing my ancestors in their various black and white glories, let us begin with embrassing photographic evidence of my own life which makes me wonder why I wasn't MORE bullied at school.

Let's begin with a picture of me aged 11. There I am in all my naive, fresh-faced glory. Sure my bangs are kind of feathered and dodgy, but the thing on top of my skull (while no means flattering) doesn't look too bad.




Until of course, IT DOES.
Here I am again, aged 15. Happily, we can tell that I am a girl by all the posters of horses on the wall behind me because we certainly can't from the bosoms I am doing my best to conceal underneath my huge shapeless t-shirt. And look! I still have the exact same haircut but at this point I was ACTUALLY PAYING SOMEONE MONEY to do this to me. Money, dare I say, that would have been better spent on an eyebrow wax and some less-round glasses.



(If you have a dodgy photo of your own, feel free to make it a meme and post on your journal or in the comments, for likely I will find them more cheering than the heaps of paperwork I have to do today).

a) You liked horses. We totally would have been friends.
b) Of the two of us, you would have been "the cool one".

I think my adolescence would have been a lot less painful had I had access to chillers in formative years. :)

I suspect I would have traded you any hair for your beautiful slender legs. :)

Minigolf! I remember that. I think I also had those sneakers.

You look very cute in that photo.

When did you start wearing glasses??

I started wearing them when I was 10 and have worn them ever since, except for around age 11 when I experimented with contact lenses for a while.

What about you?
