Old, stale, mug thread

I was inspired by the thread bemoaning people posting cute ancient high school/college pics on dating sites and the new mug thread. Here's my mashup. In the spirit of disclosure, this was taken sometime in 1997 and in the interim, I've grown two additional heads a la King Ghidorah . The photographer also shot a couple of us tied up with computer mice. Don't ask why, she was a trip.



Oh, bonus points if you post yourself in wicked outdated hair/clothes, shoot for a decade or more.

Maybe because parents in those days made us PLAY, and did not just put a video in to be our baby sitter. Just a thought.

Bah. I was a latchkey kid. Watching Jeopardy reruns made me into the repository of useless knowledge that I am today! *proudly sticking thumb into chest*

Ahahahaha...I watched a lot of Jeopardy too. Also watched a lot of Crayon Shin Chan, Ranma 1/2, Kato and Ken...suffice to know that my watching those shows probably made me the whacko I am today.

I was 26 (almost 27) at the time, not the normal 22/23 age for most college grads. That's what happens when you work and do much part time school.

Ah, OG, of the old school. You've got seniority on me, then.

Unforseen circumstances. S**t, though, when I watch Jeopardy today I can still rattle off stuff.

I certainly can, although back then I could do it constantly all day.
