I put them somewhere, safe, along with writing from my earlier years.
All of it has vanished through the dimensional portal hidden in my house – never in the same place twice, so it’s rather like finding a single Polly Pocket accessory amongst the chaos of clothes, shoes, and toys.
As an added bonus, Monday evening at approximately 5:50 PM, my internet died.
Cable TV too.
Most of my free time is spent harassing Time Warner Cable to get a tech here.
They’ve told me Thursday at the earliest.
I might go mad before they get here.
Just a warning.
Update: Dimensional doorway discovered at the very top of son’s closet. While most of my school photos and class pictures are still missing, I have three middle school yearbooks and one high school yearbook (I refused to buy the other three).
So here are the three photos from the most awkward years of my life: 5th, 6th, and 7th grade.
An added bonus? My husband, aka Computer God was two years younger than me. He’s in one of the yearbooks.
Here he is in 5th grade:
Not only that, but my tween self was obsessed with Fact Sheets. You know the kind listed in Teen, Teenbeat, Bop, and Big Bopper?
So to complete my total humiliation, here is a Fact Sheet from my 12 to 13 year old time frame. The only bit of information not included on it is an actual “date of filling out”.
Just a warning: I was obsessed with New Kids on the Block during this age.
Hopefully you weren’t drinking when you read that, or it might have shot out your nose.
Cut me some slack. This age still ranks as #1 on my Worst Age Ever list. Hence the New Kids obsession.
So laugh until you cry, share your childhood/tween/teen obsessions, or if you participated in the School Picture Day, also include a link to your blog in the comments.
Then I can laugh at you too.
When I finally get internet again.
My Fact Sheet circa age 12/13
So please, share your link or a story in the comments so I can read it on my next Krispy Kreme Wi-fi pilfering excursion.
Yeah, that’s a story for WTF Friday….
Happy School Photo Day!
