Immortalized in print.

I wasn't exactly popular in highschool. People seemed to know my name, but not for good reasons. That's why it seemed like an advantage to have K-Mack, one of my best friends, be named Photo Editor of my senior class yearbook - Class of 1993. If I didn't have someone on the inside, there wasn't a chance in hell I'd be pictured anywhere in that book. Turns out maybe it wasn't such an advantage after all, because not only did K-Mack get to choose the pictures of me that would be featured in the yearbook, she also took it upon herself to completely make up my quotes out of thin air. This one in particular has always bothered me:

Life's a beach, too bad we're not on it. It echoes in my head like a bad memory even though I've never uttered such a stupid phrase in my life. And that picture makes me look like like a post-facelift Greta Van Susteren. Thanks for nuthin' K-Mack.

All's fair in love and public humiliation.

I love the 90's! "Things that make you go hmm..." Is it just me or does Mary Lou Retton look like somebody's yearbook picture?

I was also on yearbook staff, and thus, required to make up quotes, and have quotes made up for me. I will forever be known as the girl who's favorite past time was "Random Bop Torture." Nice. I don't even think the term "bop" is used anymore...

Hello Mary Lou, Prom Night II

What's a Bop and how can it be tortured?

I took the picture, I did not make up the quote, give me a little bit more credit. If I was going to misquote you, it would've been about your stuffed animals.

All my quotes are accurate, however, the names of the JV Baseball players listed in the spring supplement may not be. My apologies to S.Smith, P.Peterson, J.Johnons, A.Anderson and L.Larryson.

Mr/Ms Anonymous Person, if Dan wants to bring the past right up into the future, that's fine, let's just leave me out of this.

I love you Dan, don't do anything to make me angry. I could kill you in your sleep you know.

By Blogger Kristina, at 2:23 PM  

Maybe Kris could make you a pair of pajamas with picutres of you in your HS wrestling uniform...sorry, just saw that episode of Gilmore Girls and I'm still giggling.

Hey, when you finally start selling those PlanetDan t-shirts will you make at least one with this picture on it? It should have the quote as well, of course. I'll preorder 10.

Wow, i'm just envious that you had a Coke machine in your high school! WTG!

They didnt even sell pop (oops, sorry... SODA) in our high school cafeteria. Just warm juice: apple, orange and grape.

A "Bop" aka a "teeny bopper." I don't know if it was just a San Diego thing, or an 80's thing, or just confined to my school. You know the kids that were dismissed as "trendy" for being popular and having all the friends and stuff you KINDA wish you had... or maybe that was just me and my little quazi gothed out self.

By Blogger elcynic, at 4:36 PM  

Well done K*mack! Well done!

Dan, sorry but I cannot stop laughing at that pic! You should see some of mine.......gads.

Fizzy we say "pop" here in MN too. Not "soda". And "hot dish" and "yeah sure" and "youbetcha". Mmm Hmm.

You look like Zack in Saved By the Bell in this photo ... heh.

By Anonymous Doll, at 8:37 AM  

Are you holding a trapper keeper?

I was on yearbook in middle school. Ah, the POWER!

By Blogger Biglug, at 10:07 AM  

I agree, he looks like Zack from SAVED BY THE BELL. Dan always puts up pics of himself where he looks really cute but he says he looks awful...wassup with that?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:47 PM  

Ahhhhh,I just noticed your Cure trapper keeper...I remember that,But why is Carrie holding it?

Just kidding:)
