I love knowing what people looked like when they were little. And on livejournal, we've been talking about embarrassing teen/preteen pictures of ourselves. So out with it: do you have any pictures of the "old you" to share? Bonus points for misguided fashion choices and ridiculous hair!
Um...I think the finest example is in PaulB's posession. Yo, Paul, still got the turquoise monstrosity?
I hope that worked right.
Two can play at that game, Ms. plaid skirt in front of pine tree!
I think that was the long ago and far away where people wore corsets and there were no cars and stuff.
I think air was around, but water was mostly solid, being the ice age and all.
All three of you, come closer....<whisper>
*WHAPs* them all with his cane!
Hrm. Maybe I WON'T go to the show tomorrow. You never can be too careful with those violent old fogies around.
(Hrm. I hope Paul doesn't read this thread. :) )
Augh! You invoke childhood trauma! I lost that tie clip that day, and it was my favorite! *sigh*
But thanks. :)
Today, I happen to be all dressed up, and I'm wearing Grampa's most-often-worn tie clip...an Indian paddling a canoe. It's holding the tie tail to my shirt, and I have the canoe tucked in the back seam of the tie proper so it still holds, but you can't see it.

me stealing Zebs cracker. I was.... 2.... maybe.
Here's a couple of pics that Carey thought I should post here.
First this is my passport pic from when I was 13
The second is my first teaching ID circa 1981 aka The Almost Famous Pic.
If your monitor hasn't shut down take a look at this Diary Entry which has lots of pics of me. See me young, see me old, see me fat, see me skinny, see me looking like Peter Brady.

I don't know who the guys from Styxz look like, but I can see the Peter Brady resemblance. *giggle*
Wow in the kid shot you look SO much like a kid I went to school with named Alex Ruch.

Hardly a little kid photo, it's only 8 or 9 years old, but it's the worst one I have of myself. besides I was old enough t know better than to have hair like that.
Come on doesn't anyone else have any old photo's to show? Jill how about some pics of Kat as a kid?

I don't think anyone can handle pics of me in high school with permed hair and the fuschia outfit. You really don't want to see some of the horrible pics of my youth. ;)
I must really burn some of those negatives...
That's the whole idea, seeing the ridiculous pics :-) I wish I had one in my psychodelic pants.

I have all the good intentions of posting pictures of the younger me when I get home over the weekend.. Its your own fault for starting the thread when I'm somewhere without access to my pictures :D

I'm biased but I overcame it to say you were cute

You asked for it.
Both are around age 11 or 12.
Me with glasses, and my best friend.
Me without glasses (and something in my eye, apparently).

Don't know what possesses me to do this, but here is what I believe to be the only good picture ever taken of me. I just wish I'd gotten it to scan a little better. Oh well.

Well, following in the trend, here are some of my pics when I was a wee one to when I was bratty one.
Obligatory Baby shot...Probably at about 1 year or so.
Picture of My family minus Dad, who I would assume is taking the picture with me at 3 months.
Here's a shot of my mom, sister, and me during my sister's 5th grade graduation, which would make me about 4 or so.
I actually left the continent when I was 5 and ended up in China.
Random Christmas Picture with the Sibs probably when I was 6 or so.
