Me... oldschool


Me... oldschool
Originally uploaded by LoraLoo.
Barbara posted a beautiful picture of herself in high school, and asked her blog friends to do the same! So, here it is... me, back in 1986 - I was still 15 when this was taken that summer. I have pictures with better quality, but they're still in a box tightly packed away in a closet, so perhaps another day...

I can't believe how much time I spent on my freakin' hair back then!

You are too kind to say such nice things about me. I was just a long haired weirdo in HS.

You look SO CUTE! Love the do! I think we would have hung out if we were in the same age group and the same school!

Woah! Bangs! Looked great, hon. I'd really have to comb the archives to find something. I don't think that I have any of them here.

I don't know why, but all I could think about when I looked at this pic was "Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun". It's a cute picture of you, man I miss the 80's. I gotta ask though, who's on the poster on the wall above you (if you can remember)? Trips down memory lane are the coolest. thanks for sharing with us.

Cute!

Yes, those "feathers" had to be just so, didn't they? LOL I was cursed with swimmers hair...sometimes greeney-yellowy and brittle as hay! Yech!!!

That is the Laura I remember.

You were so cute!

I would spend a minimum of an hour on the hair. I don't know how I actually got to go anywhere.

Sweet 80's hair batman! At work we did a "wall of high school" I brought in my yearbook pic and was tagged 'Most 80's Female'. You totally have me beat in the bangs dept. though.

Ken said...

Oh my. I don't know if I can find anything from High School. Every thing I have is either recent or from before I was, say, 6.

Fred said...

I was married in 1986. Thanks for reminding me how old I am.

Great picture.

Oh man I looked at that picture and suddenly felt real old. Remind me to show you some of the old pictures of me and Teri someday...

Barbara: No, no no... you were not a weirdo. At least you didn't look like one! I know we definitely could have hung out. :)

Martin: Those bangs are pretty tame - I should find a picture of my junior prom. Now those were some bangs.

Nik: That picture was taken in one of my best friend's bedroom, and for the life of me I can't remember who's in the poster. I remember she was really into Johnny Depp and "21 Jump Street", but I don't remember if that show was on when this was taken.

JJ: Oh yes, I should have had stock in hair spray!

Cyndi: When I look at that picture and think of you, I remember the one of you with Stace that I've seen. The hair!

Vegas Princess: I know, we'd spend like 2 hours getting ready to go anywhere.

Lily: That's a cute idea, the "Wall of High School." Like I told Martin, the bangs just kept getting bigger, and bigger...

Ken: Awww you have to have something! At our wedding, we had this table with pictures from our childhood that our mothers got together. I'd bet your Mom has a lot. ;)

Fred: You may have been married in '86, but I bet you still felt 16!

Lloyd: You're not old! You're goinng to be a new Daddy... that buys you at least 10 years off your age. Besides, I'm not much behind you at all in years! I'd love to see pictures of yourself a Teri from back then!

Hair tends to "get smaller" as we get older huh? My wife had the "big hair" thing too! Really cracks me up when I see her pics from back then!
