When Wordless Wednesday meets From the Vault

Hump Day -- the perfect day to go through the photos from the past weeks and months and share them with my BOOBHs. I didn't realize how long it had been since I've done one of these posts!

They may look cute, but they've been in the toilet.

This is how my blond, blue-eyed son sees himself.  NTTAWWT.*

Mala made me this ornament in 1998.  <3

The bad news:  I had a PET scan last week as part of my annual witch Cancer Hunt.  The good news: it was negative!




R2 is happy to see you!

These next few are from our local ski hill's Oktoberfest event:

Raise your hand if you have to pee!

Why hello, cowboy.

Bang!

Owls, dude.  they're everywhere.

This cookie is bigger than my head.

Check out this guy's giant horn.

Face painting AFTER!

Drunk with power (?)after winning the dance competition (no, really), Jim entered the stein-holding contest.  The competition was stiff!

Scary ski mountain mascots
He really commits.
And now the Pièce de résistance!

The other day Jim was puttering around the house when he decided to swap out a picture in a frame he had in his man cave.  Under the poster, he found this:


Clicky clicky.
I was twenty, in my Sophomore year at UVM, and pretty much all of the important things in my life (at that time) are represented here in pictures:

My two best high school friends who shared my fondness for bad horror flicks, empty calories, and later, horrifying our parents with pink champagne-fueled belly piercing incidents.  That pic of C (lower left) was taken the night when I lost my panties.  Oops.

My college friend with benefits, K.  Oh, what benefits.... The mud fight at Davis Hall.  My friend's dopey boyfriend (the blond dude) who was present in just about all of our pictures from that year... and none after that.  My parents when they both had hair.  My sister and me in our fabulous sleep wear.  I think it's funny that in my sister's college graduation photo my mom and I are standing the exact same way.

It was so neat to see these pics all in one place like this.  Talk about a time capsule - I don't think I could have made a more all-encompassing "My life in one year" collage if I had tried.

There you have it!  WW meets FTV.  Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. 

XO
Bev

NICE stove!!!!!

And I believe that cowboy was the same guy who wanted to board at my farm. After he told me how I should run my barn, cut holes in my hayloft, and made fun of me for actually bathing my horses, I decided I didn't have any vacancies.

And I LOVE Danny's commitment; both to being Spidey and black.

"The competition was stiff!" made me pee! ...just a little.

Bev said...

LOL! Yes, sounds like that cowboy needs to get himself a barn to run it HIS way. Jagoff.

If it makes you feel any better his horse slipped on the mud and fell on him after the first run. *muahahahahaha*

Glad I could make you pee! If you think that's funny, wait till you see the video of Jim winning the German dance-off. Yes, I'm serious.

I'm probably just not right in the head, but that picture of your mom with the cat that you don't know kind of amuses me.

MJenks said...

My word ver was just "ellesar".

Be still my Tolkien-loving heart.

Frank Irwin said...

Hurray for negativity!

And for cookies bigger than your head.

I love the need-to-pee bear.

Looking forward to the video.

A fifth short sentence fragment.

BigSis said...

Yah for no cancer. And, I want that cookie!

Samsmama said...

I'm with Jenks on the picture. The "my mom and a cat I don't remember" made me laugh.

Love your stove, love the negative results, love that there's a video to come, love the Beverhosen.

Bev said...

Thanks, all! Beverhosen! Beverhosen!! Bever. fucking. hosen!

That is all.

Is your recently-pierced friend holding raw hamburger on her navel? Mmmm, sanitary.

Elliott said...

And they really make a Mr. Potato R2D2? Why was I not informed?

Dave said...

Maybe that's not a horn, maybe it's the longest teakwood pipe in all of Bavaria.
Grats on the negative results for cancer, that's great.
I wish I had more pictures from when I was that age (20ish?), but they're very few & far between. I think that was just a few years before the whole digital camera revolution. Nice pics & labels, it's always cool looking back at that person's life through pictures that you have this vague memory of being at one time, pre-kids...
Rule 34 even applies to Star Wars figures, huh? Wow. At least R2's hung like a, um, a uh, much taller droid?!?
Jagoff, that's funny - I think I'm the only one that uses that term down here. I dragged it back from Pittsburgh with me - one of the few good things I brought back down with me, besides what originally came up with me.
