Proving that I AM a lemming

This post was completely inspired by Tiff's recent stroll down memory lane. I could not resist this particular bandwagon.

First up, one of my all time favorite pictures, not because it's particularly good, but you gotta dig the 1970's feel here. Plus, I'm totally cute in this. Of course, about 2.4 seconds after the snap of the camera, I'm fairly certain Nate and I were right back to trying to kill each other.
And No, we never outgrew that.
Next up, one of my favorite past times, right up until I discovered Jack Daniels, which I covered in a previous post. And this, clearly taken before I discovered that I was "worth it"..



Shortly after this, came the discovery of L'Oreal hair color and apparently Stevie Nicks type-dresses. The best thing about this photo is the girl on the right. That is Lace... you've read about her here before. Hopefully, she won't kill me for posting this. Heh. This very night Lace and I got into more trouble than you could possibly imagine. Someone got expelled, someone tore a door off a hotel bathroom, someone went traipsing through the woods fully believing a serial killer was stalking them and someone had sex in front of a group of people. Yea, people, this was HIGH SCHOOL.

A little out of order this one, but I had to throw in my High School Marching Band Photo too - got keep up with Tiff. And yes, I'm really in there, I was not however, a hand-waving poofter, here's a hint. I'm in the first row.

The Usual Suspects. This is where L'Oreal gets out of hand. Apparently in high school, my goal was to appear as close to dead as possible. The three people are Lace (she totally looks like she'd fit in your pocket, doesn't she?) Dee, and Dennis. This was the night I graduated from high school. The rest of the night was liter bottles of California Wine Coolers wandering around Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria.


And that is pretty much it. I feel like I should have posted a picture to prove that I did indeed realize my own hair color was just fine, and that looking like a corpse really wasn't that cool.

BUT I didn't so you'll just have to trust me.

Thank you for playing.

OMG - you were on the RIFLE LINE!

Can you do a triple, behind the back??

tiff said...

Also? These pictures do NOT do you justice. Oh hells no. You are WAY prettier in person, and your hair color rocks the triangle, sistah,

Cravey said...

Tiff, I'll pay your 20 bucks for saying that tomorrow. :)
Also, I could do a bunch of cool things back in the day - and once upon a time, while learning, I knocked out a tooth. So cool.

Oh that was fun! Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to give it a try soon. If nothing else, it reminds us of how far we've come. :)

Madly spinning rifles are dangerous things, my friend. I clonked myself on the head a few times, and that smarts!

I'm still laughing about the Stevie Nicks dress. Those guys Dee and Dennis look like they would have loved them some Molly Hatchet.

And I'm with Tiff...these pictures look NOTHING like you, even though you WERE an awfully cute kid. But you look so different now and have the GREATEST.HAIR.EVER. And you're still awfully cute. Oh no, I'm starting to sound like my son's music teacher.....

HA! I had completely forgotten about Sun-In. It turned my hair orange.

More than once.

I LOVE the pics.

I promise to follow suit soon, but may alternate b/t hs and college. Most of my younger year pics are at my dad's house in Maine...

utenzi said...

Hmmm. Now Tiff and Purlie have me curious about what you really look like, Cravey. I like the picture of you in soccer garb best--and Lace isn't hard to look at either. (wow!)

BTW, I thought you were semi-nude in that first picture for a moment. Apparently you took a digital picture of a photograph and your fingers are at the bottom left. They look a lot like bare legs!

kenju said...

You are much cuter now!!

6truck said...

LOL.

dang. I remember those people like it was twenty years ago. oh that right...it was TWENTY YEARS AGO.
dennis has a sweeeeet Cinderella shirt on now. And I'm pretty sure Lace IS going to kill you when she sees this...

aaahhh...nothing brings back those Hawk memories like orange and brown...

Anne said...

Jeez, I remember those punk/goth/Stevie Nicks days. Thanks for sharing the pics. They bring back memories.

Biff Spiffy said...

This.is.awesome.

First thing to do when you get a time machine: Go back and bring a decent freaking camera.

Diggin' the pics. Would really like to hear the details about exactly HOW involved you were in those high school hijinks.
