file under: ways to waste time / ways to embarrass myself

i held out on facebook for a loooong time, because dude, i already HAD a myspace profile, and that was embarrassing enough. (note: it quickly morphed into embarrassment over having a myspace profile to embarrassment over how much time i SPENT on myspace. uh, oops.)

however, i am now, like, TOTALLY over myspace, omg, and am completely addicted to facebook instead. and i like how you can tag people in pictures, and then those pictures come up under their albums too, because hey! neato!

except here's the thing. i have personally uploaded 6 photos of myself. and have been tagged in 89 others. that's EIGHTY NINE. and? the majority of those? like, OVER FIFTY OF THEM? are from highschool. let's recall what i looked like in highschool, shall we?

how hot was my bf, btw? despite that godawful shirt, i still convinced him to date me!

that's what we call "healthy hair"

like those tapered jeans and the oversized turtleneck? i was super fashionable. obviously.

so yeah. now when coworkers, friends, potential dates, etc find me? they see 800 pictures of me like this. exxxxxxcellent. heh.

  2. OMG. Not that I needed any more reasons, but you just gave me plenty more to STAY AWAY FROM FACEBOOK. People at work still don't know I blog!

  3. Those jeans had better be Guess. If not, shame on you.

    You are bold to post high school pictures on your own blog. I still consider those the off limit years. Too funny!

  4. After all that I am REALLY glad I did not follow my daughters in there!

    You think you had a problem with your High School Pics? After the girls saw what I wore for glasses they passed out laughing on the floor.

    As far as boyfriends? I think all the guys were either afraid of my brothers or me...same result *L*

    This is why I stick with simple and unassuming bebo. That and I KNOW I'm not going to run into my 50 year old boss there while he's trawling for ladies...

  6. I know the concept of Facebook, but that's about it. How exciting to be "spotted" by others though. Kind of like a celebrity sighting.

    Very cute boyfriend, but you had a natural beauty then. You looked very proper, like a dancer.

  8. These pictures are awesome. And I like how you compound the damage of other people seeing them by posting on your own blog. But really, they're great.

  11. I'm sending you $200 so that you can have your hair professionally done. No thanks necessary.

    Also I quit blogging so don't leave a message on my blog, I'm serious, I was just at Mal's and clicked on you.

    Enjoy your evening.

  14. I have an awesome hair photo of myself in my Facebook album from way back in the day.

    Argh, I can't add you as a friend. I don't know your last name. And apparently there is no "Vienna, VA" network. Imagine!
