Worse than a horror movie

That's right; Halloween 2, Scream, The Others ... They got nothin' on me. I took on Rena's challenge and found some horrifying pictures from high school. Be prepared. I've warned you. Here's one of me in home ec class. That's my friend Sarah who's making bunny ears on me. Isn't she a great friend. By the way, I'm NOT posting the picture of Sarah and I on "twin day," wearing matching vests. It's just too shocking for words.
And here's me next to my brothers, whom I have hidden in order to spare them the humiliation I am now subjecting myself to. Don't ask me what the heck I was doing in this picture, because I wouldn't be able to tell you.
And this one is truly awful. I had been crying, so my face is extra pink and splotchy.
HOWEVER, I must not have looked that bad. I think I just didn't know how to dress. What with the tapered jeans and the baggy shirts, I mean. Here's me at senior prom with my date, Jess. That was my first date ever ... in my life. See, I don't look terrible here, do I? Just a little goofy.
And now that you've had a good laugh and your sides are aching, I pass on the challenge to you! Find an equally terrifying picture of yourself from high school and post it on your blog. I want to see those 80's styles, people! Bring it on!

Hope, I am laughing so hard right now, not at your pictures, but at your refusal to post the twin vests because it is "just too shocking." I'll have to dig through some photos. Hey--I think it's great that we can celebrate the fact we think we look better now than we did 10 or 15 years ago!

I don't know what you are talking about Hope, I think you look cute in high school!

Rena said...

I still think I look worse. But I'm just competitive like that...hey, want to see whose house can get the most disgusting???

I love the matching shirt and scrunchie. I totally remember doing that. I have a horrible picture in mind of me...but I don't have a scanner. It's hilarious....I'm dressed in a cooking apron and stuffed full to make me look like a cabbage patch doll. You would die laughing!

Is ANYONE brave enough to take on this challenge??? Come on!

Katie Jones said...
