Cleanin' House

I found some old pics...

One was from my Junior Prom when I was still a very sweet, innocent, wholesome church going Catholic girl...(thank God I broke the hell outta that mold)

(Note the brillo pad frizz aka my hair. I spent HOURS trying to straighten that hot mess (this was obviously before ceramic flat irons and even straightening serums) and it just kept getting frizzier with every touch. I was bawling when my date showed up and he was so sweet and kept telling me my hair looked pretty and we were going to be late so...off we went! Why the heck didn't I just tie it back in a low pony tail or whip it into a bun!?!? God, this picture makes me want to barf.)

Cut to... a few years later in college when the majority of my "wholesomeness" had gone bye bye and I finally invested in a quality flat iron:


Yeah, here's a pic certain to make my mother proud: Underage daughter, beer in hand wearing hooker red lipstick that's shmeared off her face, getting mauled by some boozer. Do I even remember his name? (it was a spontaneous dance so you were asked like 5 minutes before and this guy asked me as we were walking home from a class together.)

Those were the days. If I can figure out a way to edit about 95% of what really happened, maybe I'll share some of those experiences on here...

No no! No editing puhh-lease! We want all the good stuff. Sex, drugs and rock and roll at it's finest.

Roomie, That picture made my day. However, since it has been 18 years since I had seen it, your hair is not as bad as I remembered! HA! But the memory of that story made for a good laugh!

NO EDITING ALLOWED.

and picture please. Lots and lots of pictures. Preferably unedited.

Smileygirl said...

Ok I'll only edit about 90%.

Sorry to disappoint Rachel, there weren't any drugs involved. I saved those for post college experimentation.

And what the heck is a 'skeezer'? Is it a cross between a skank and a geezer??? Because I'll have you know I'm not THAT old. A skank, yes but I'm no geezer. At least not yet.

I am so glad these pictures came through on my end. :)

I guess "skeezer" must be an Englewood thing. After working here so long, I guess my Sista side has finally over-taken my dorky white girl side! ;-) And, no, it has nothing to do with being a geezer. Sheesh, I'm older than dirt, so I would NEVER call anyone a geezer!! I should have stuck with my first thought - whore! tee hee!!! Or would that be "Hoe!" hahaha Ah, just think ten years from now, some hooker-red-lipstick-wearing-underage-drinkin'-hooch will post a picture of herself hanging all over my son. God forbid!!

Oh, it's Scott! And I love your wings. They're so hot. Okay, now I'm going to find some to post.
