Two Birds With One Stone

Originally uploaded by peek-a-lu.
My pal, Bob, recently took a trip down memory lane and posted a wedding photo taken some twenty years ago. I told him I might try and dig up a photo of me as a wide-eyed bride of twenty. Deer in the headlights, much?

As you might have guessed by the hair, make-up and dress, this wedding took place in the 80's. Like, totally. What is that on my head? Ugh. Gag me with a spoon.

I think Jim deserves some sort of recognition for not only his courage in posting a most radical pic of him in full on 80's tubular garb but also a nod for his ability to laugh at himself. Fer shur....

Come on now. Everyone join in! Dig out those totally gnarly photos of you from in between your Culture Club and Wham! Albums and give us a peek. Extra credit for anyone who can point out a Rubik's cube, fingerless gloves, legwarmers, or a pair of Ray-Ban's in their photo. Leave me a comment with some linkage to your site so we can check it out.

That's too scary to contemplate. But you! Taken in context you, look lovely in this picture. Jim's picture taken in context looks, well, what I would expect. :-)

Well, thank you, Vicki...

You do indeed look LOVELY in that pic (despite the deer-in-headlights vibe).

If this "what we looked like in the 80's" thing gets going, I'm not taking any of the blame!

Despite what's on your head, you look gorgeous. Hmmmm, I'll look for photos. But I don't have one of those scanning thingees.

Oh, and congrats, Lu!

I'm posting a couple pics in just a few minutes...

If you saw mine, you'd feel a lot better about yours. Oh, and congratulations!!!!!!!!!! I had a feeling you'd win; it was just that good.

I can NOT make that look like you. You have definitely aged with grace; in fact, I don't think you've aged at all!!

Well, you know I HATE memes (hint, hint ;) ) but I will do this one!!! Mine is HORRIBLE!

Black pants, white anklets with white pumps. Spiked hair. Full on WHAM!

I posted 2, but you have to remember I was born in the 80s. You look quite beautiful (although surprisingly not happy) in your picture. Surely you have something more embarassing to show us, with a whole decade of bad fashion?

You're totally hot, in a scared-to-death type of way. LOL

My caption for your picture...Lu suddenly realizes that what her mom just told her is related to her sixth grade sex ed class.

OK.... Mine is UP!!!

I'm posting my best/worst pictures today! I graduated high school in 1984, so you can only imagine the humiliation buried in my old photo albums. The hard part will be choosing!
