Time capsule

March 26th, 2009

Just so that I can share the embarrassment a bit, I give you my sister.  (Not shown, the tail she was growing in her hair that year.)

People wonder why I hate real trees.  My dad is the reason.  He always waited until they went on sale and ended up with the ugliest trees.   This one looks like it ate all of the other trees.

The answer to rubic cube boredom: the pyramid.

The box contents yet to be explored.

And I apparently didn’t have an original thought.  My spelling book is covered with clever graffiti like: “gag me with a spoon”, “mental case”, “Sheila -n- Bill and Dave” (written by Sheila I presume – way to commit girl), “I hate spelling”, “I hate homework”, and “totally boring”.  I will give my 11 year old self props for spelling all of my disdainful thoughts correctly.

Take Kirk Cameron off the cover and you’d never know these were 25 years old.  Girls “problems” don’t change that much I guess.

And I found a file folder labeled “posters”.  I wasn’t allowed to hang posters on my walls so anything that wouldn’t fit on the back of my door apparently got dumped into the folder. Wow everyone is so young.  The cover of the Teen Machine magazine has a picture of John Stamos on the other side so I’m assuming that is why it made it into the folder.  And the Tom Cruise picture has David Hasselhoff with Kitt on the other side but I’m hoping I kept it for Tom.

The cover of the magazine promises:

Explosive life-story photos for Matt Dillon

John Stamos: GH Star shares his big plans

Bruce Penhall! (Who?)

Win Ricky’s [Shroeder] first sexy poster! (He looks 10 yrs old.  Sexy? Ick!)

  3. Rachael Says:

    I think we are the same age… 36?

  4. Heather Says:

    Wow! This looks like my childhood too! I dressed up as Boy George one year for Halloween, and I looked just like him! And Rick Springfield – totally dreamy! Hmmmm. Any Duran Duran posters?

  5. Burgh Baby Says:

    This stuff is like GOLD. LOVE IT!

    Boy George then compared to Boy George now is sort of like a cruel joke. It’s like somebody smacked him over the head with an ugly stick after shoving enough drugs into his system to make him permanently stupid. Which may very well be what happened.

  6. Julie P Says:

    Love it – I have the same girl scout book – should have known you were one too! Glad you’re having fun looking thru your past. You know you have to save the same stuff for Sabrina and Tessa now, right?

  7. Rusty Gerber Says:

    I look like a boy thanks!!! I think that I remember the boy’s name were the letters M.M? was that the first letters of his name?

  8. Stacy Says:

    Hey, can you scan some of those articles? I’m curious about “Romance That Works.”

    Oh, and I actually OWNED that Ricky Schroder poster. He was 14 in 1984. Not icky, but not “sexy” either.

  9. The Glamorous Life Association Says:

    Good GOD woman! Why was this not put in the Sincerely Fro Me to You linky party????

  10. The Glamorous Life Association Says:

    Oh and Ricky Schroder? He grabbed my butt when I was 12 and at Disneyland.

    For Reals.

    Yeah. My girlfriends were impressed too.

    Ha!

  11. ani Says:

    oh wow, i had that same girl scout badge book… i remember reading through it and marking the ones i had earned and the ones i wanted to earn. can you say nerd???
    oh well.

  12. The Glamorous Life Association Says:

    Still hysterical- even the 2nd time around!

  13. Tammy Says:

    What a treasure trove you have there…..we apparently are from the same era! I loved me some Ricky Shroder in Silver Spoons. And my college roommate had her wall COVERED in Kirk Cameron!

  14. Muthering Heights Says:

    LOL, that is a pretty goofy looking Christmas tree!!

  15. Elaina Avalos Says:
