back to school

first, let me say that i'm totally cheating tonight by turning a myspace bulletin into a meme, because i'm too lazy to think of something deep, meaningful, and entertaining to write about.

feel free to swipe this, if you wish:

You, the class clown?! No way (he says sarcastically).

By the way, put up a picture on the blog you may like...

Motherdear said...

That's too funny! 1996?????? Yegads, youngun'...

I was going to steal this, then thought, OMG, who's interested in ancient history!!! Besides, I don't remember my senior year in high school. I was too busy getting ready to get married. Which caused me to miss graduation because I was on my honeymoon.

So you can see how most of my answers would be "Not Applicable".

kal: funny thing- SO sent me the very same picture thi morning.

motherdear: oh, come on- you're not that old. besides, i love it when you reminisce. (i think i misspelled that- whoops.)

fine- don't do it for it for my sibling, who still checks in on a daily basis.

Bite Me said...

I may have to do this one. You are a youngin' too. :-)

Motherdear said...

Yeah, I ended up scooping it! Not too exciting, but a nice change from my usual rant/whine and the house pictures that have dominated the summer!

Thanks for the momentum, girl!!!

Kal and I were talking today and we realized that you and I graduated the same year...except mine is backwards.

Typical of me, eh???

But I think you had more fun that I did in high school. At least, in your senior year...

I didn't go to school senior year... I did high school in two and a half years... So I guess I won't be posting. Sorry.
