can't believe i'm doing this.

I was DARED to post a pic of my 1988 prom self. I’m always up for a challenge, so here’s me at prom…I think.



I mean, I know it’s me, but I can’t remember which poofy dress/poofy hair combo comprised prom night. Clever commentary absent as well since I obviously don’t remember much of the night. In fact, high school itself is pretty much a blur. Come to think of it, maybe I should retract my previous statement and say with 99.9% certainty that this is me at prom. Anyway, the pic says it all: obligatory late 80’s crimped hair, cakes of makeup and yes Tracey…lots of ruffles (although I’ve seen worse).

So there I go, burning my 18-year old self into blog memory forever. But imagine how my poor prom date would feel should he, during a late-night net surfing session, happen unwittingly upon the poofy prom version of himself. So, I Photoshop disguised him…and may have gotten a bit carried away.

If I get sued, I hold Tracey personally liable anyway. Since she MADE me do it, and all…this SO feels like high school.


So come on...post yours. I know you (don't) want to!!!!!!!!!!!!

My sides hurt! I wish I could decorate most of my high school boy friends like that in REAL life.

I love how you are floating on clouds - For some reason it's making me think someone was chanting "the future is yours" over and over.

I knew I smelled ruffles. But you're looking pretty tasteful, you know - for the 80's.

Thanks for playing along - you're a good sport.

I think we could get in good trouble with this dare stuff...

Now that is a ruffle! We must be around the same age so I KNOW what happened in those years even though I didnt have a prom.
