Bret, will you go to the prom with me?

Everything else you can poke a stick at. And then some.

Bret, will you go to the prom with me?

Postby mockingbird » Thu Jun 18, 2009 4:06 am

I admit, I asked Jemaine first, but he just mumbled something about going over to his friend Paul's house to watch videos or something. Honestly, I don't know what that guy's deal is. Anyway, then I started thinking about how good you look in that piano key belt you wear sometimes, and how you signed my yearbook "Stay Sweet, Brett" which I thought was pretty awesome but seriously, what is up with that little flying guitar you draw on everything? And, hello, did someone forget how to spell his name that day? Whatever - here's my picture, in case you want to put it in your locker or something.

Image

You know, on second thought, maybe you could just talk to Jemaine for me. You know, see if he likes me. My friend Jeanne thinks you're pretty hot, maybe we could rent a limo together. You remember Jeanne:

OK, so, I'll see you in History class. Don't tell Jemaine I talked to you.

Hehe, is this for us to post our high school senior pictures? I'll have to dig mine out...

Hee hee! OK, so I hope you all enjoyed my little pastiche up there. So get to it, ladies - post your embarrassing Olan Mills moment! You know you have one! Let's see it! Don't leave me and the boys hanging!

Let me point out to you, in case you missed it - the hand that's not actually propping up my head, just posing there! And, let's not forget the single rubber bangle I'm wearing! Ah ha ha ha! Hoo boy.

edit - that's what it is, Kelly! Let's see it! :D

Me from sophomore year high school. Looking like a geekeroni:

Aw, mockingbird! Your posts never fail to make me smile. Maybe you could pass him a note in class?

:lol:

I wish I had a senior photo. But I was one of those punk rock kids who started skipping class her junior year and eventually stopped showing up altogether. I'm sure I could dig up some embarrassing/memorable high school moment though.

:bolt:

Kelly, those rock! I can't laugh at you, you look too good. edit - I just saw you said they digitally removed your braces! How funny!

Not to derail my own thread, and so soon too, but when I was digging through old photos looking for these beauties, I found some real gems. Here are two and then back to the hideous Olan Mills disasters.

Image
That's not a Halloween costume, folks - that's my fashion forward friend Joan at the end of 8th grade, circa 1984. Yep, that's the real deal right there.

Image
OK. I have to fess up. I cleaned myself up in those senior pictures, for the relatives, in a rare moment of cooperation. This picture was taken maybe 6 months later, by my aspiring (at the time) photographer friend Eileen. This was the real me, hee hee.

Ah ha ha ha ha ha! Classic, vmh. If we had gone to school together we could have hung out and skipped class. ;)

ah cool! mock, you were/are one rockin' chick 8)

(un?)fortunately, Australia never did go through an Olan Mills phase of school photos. They were always boring, sitting up straight in our school uniforms in front of a plain background. Fortunately, I have no digital copies, so can't share :wink:
It's all about the music.

Well OK then. :lol: :lol: :lol: ;)

Helgecko - I graduated in 1988, I certainly don't have digital copies either! I took a photo of the photo. Pretty low tech but it worked OK. We will accept no excuses, helgecko!

mockingbird. Better than I could have dreamed. :prayer: You are hilarius! That opening was some A+ comedy! :roll2: That last shot of you with your "friends"? That's one intense stare you've got goin' on. I'll bet you ruled that bunch. Did you beat me up in high school? I was the cute blonde stepperette.

I gotta go hunting. I honestly hope I can find mine.

Kelly: Ha, the pose with the wood!?! Classic. Showing off the class ring? :D What a doll.

I honestly hope so too. :lol: I would never have beat you up, that was not my thing. I might have written some thinly veiled derogatory essay about you, lol. :roll: And hey - they are not my "friends", they are my friends! We were tight, yo! I still keep in touch with that motley bunch! (For some reason)

I had to actually go over to my mom's to get mine, lol. That's so funny you say that about the band because EVERYONE who has ever seen that picture says that! There's actually a bunch of them and they all look like we're in a band, hee hee. Like I said my friend Eileen was an aspiring photographer (now she is an actual photographer) and one day we were all walking around and we ended up at the cemetary (no surprise really) and she had her camera so she posed us around and shot some pics. They're all hilariously serious like that, lol. Funny thing is she actually worked for Olan Mills at one time. Bit of a funny thing. :D

LIAR! You can scan some :D

I'll dig some of mine out, I had the dubious honour of being asked to LIFT UP my skirt because it was too long in the photos. Oh yeah, no short trampy skirts for me!
