Show me YOURS: Senior Portrait Edition

Hey all! Yup, it's Monday... you knew this was coming!

Today's the day I asked you all to bring some yearbook hilarity. To play along, just post a photo of yourself in high school (preferably your Senior portrait) on your blog and I'll put the link here on the OOBH. OR, you can send me your photo and I'll post it here, like I did for the fine folks below.

I'll be updating this post as they come in, so be sure to check back often.

Let's get this pahty stahted!

Audra told me I could steal her pic from Facebook, so I totally did.

Why, helloooooo, Breathless Mahoney. How YOU doin'?

You know Cary as the wise-ass comedian behind List Of The Day, GuySpeak, etc. Now behold his high school hotness!

Nice butt cut, my friend! You were super cute despite the unibrow.

MtnMama - once a babe, always a babe!

MtnMama is also so cool that she sent a couple groovy candid yearbook shots, too!

Onebadmamajama proves that she lived up to her name from an early age:

(I won't say anything about her bangs, because it would be mean to talk about her bangs, which are clearly fabulous.)

And last but not least... here is La Bev as a sweet & salty 17-year-old virgin girl:

You'll notice that my photo looks strikingly similar to my sister's photo. What can I say, we lived in a small town and our local photographer only had a few choice poses in his repertoire. Coincidentally, most of the girls in my class had pictures just like this one.

And as promised, here's the special bonus shot - my college year book photo:

Look at me - so young, so full of hope and optimism. What happened?!

ETA: Here come the links!

Lookin' goooooooood, Heidi Renee! Show me "pensive!" Show me "annoyed!" You nailed it!

The lovely Salt, as a blonde!! Love the piercings, girly! I would have pierced my whole face if my parents hadn't been so strict!

Carol has added her photo! Hubba hubba, hot mama!

Mala could't find her yearbook, but she found a few other gems!

Join the fun! Send me your photos or links!!

They have college yearbooks too?

We need to see some good early nineties ones!

I have never heard of a "butt cut" before but I intend to use the term.

"Short back and sides sir?"

"Nah, give me a butt cut."

BigSis said...

I have some of those head resting on the hand poses too. How funny. I know I'm late to the party, but I'll have to see what I can find to share with you. I definitely have some laughable bangs to go along with my spiral perm!

Heidi Renée said...

Backlighting: making perfectly lovely hair look scraggly since the invention of the light bulb.

You, my friend, are too cute and I think you look exactly the same now as you did then.

Mine are here!

Word verification: sesse--what we all are, obvs.

Heidi Renée said...

Oh, and I completelt forgot to mention that none of my original senior pictures were good enough to print in the yearbook. Olan Mills swore up and down that they would take one that would be sized properly, but NOOOOOO.

I'll do a follow-up later on with the actual yearbook photo and my college yearbook photo.

Salt said...

LOVE this. So much. Your college photo is so angelic with that halo of light behind you. That's optimism right there!!!

I did, in fact, fire up the scanner yesterday. Word of warning, 18 year old Salt was quite a scary sight. I blame it on the pot.

Mine is HERE.

onebadmamajama said...

Ah yes..the bangs. I can remember having to have them "just so" before I would leave the house..for school, church or whatever! LOL I don't have a college graduation pic, but I'll have to see if I can find a pic of my basic training graduation! That one blows ALL of them outta the water;)

Mala said...

Fabulous pictures! You ladies are hot! And you too Cary. Actually, now I want to go to Dad's and steal my brother's senior picture because he resembles Cary.. A LOT. Weird. Mom?

Well, I better get back to destroying my house, looking for my missing year book.

MtnMama said...

I kind of "forgot" how unruly my hair was - do you know how much I love Hermione? - and that it didn't get dark until I was leaving HS... weird. But I'm the original Late Bloomer, and I don't mind anymore. And there are good hair products now and I've had more practice at taming the beast.
Looking through my yearbook was a trip - that was 30 years ago kids - and LOTS of us could have used "products"! The hair... oh, the hair!
Cary reminds me of my Junior HS boyfriend, Lloyd. I wonder if Lloyd looks like Cary now?

KingstonsQueen said...

Awesome post - found you through Salt

Samsmama said...

I would not have recognized OBMJ. Seriously. And by "would not" I mean "didn't."

Bev, you and your sister are dead ringers for each other.

As you know, I have no Senior picture. However, I do posess the world's worst childhood picture. So, neener.

Cary said...

Look how fucking sexy we all are. I have such a boner right now. But no unibrow. Got rid of that in college.

Bev said...

I love these!! Thanks, everyone. Keep 'em coming!

Frank Irwin said...

It's too bad that I don't have a picture of me in my patchwork denim leisure suit.

Or maybe it's not.

MtnMama said...

Frank, if I could cough up the bib overalls (so classy!) the least you could do is show us your leisure suit... or something comparable. Jeez!

meleah rebeccah said...

Oh My God!! These are sooo great!!

Elliott said...

Sorry, I didn't get a chance to put forth the exceptional effort posting my picture would have taken before I left for Ohio yesterday. I'll be late, as in 'Late May', probably.

But college Bev? Hubba, hubba!

Elliott said...

And I was certain I clicked the 'subscribe to follow-up comments', and really, I only had a few whiskys and a beer!

Mike129 said...

I'm kinda' in lust with that Bev chick!

Kate said...

Loved Mala's hot beaver pic.

Bev, were you as angelic as you looked in your college picture? Ha! Snort, snort!

Mala said...

Oh man, you mention "hot beaver pics" over at my place and they all come running! Thank you Kate!

PorkStar said...

Uhm Bevers....

Your HS pic is very cute

Your College pic is GORGEOUS!

Whehere was I when you were in College? Why didn't I go to YOUR college?!

Heidi Renée said...

Aaaand here's my second round.

Melissa said...

Your college picture - you are BEAUTIFUL. Wowee.
