1967

1967 was the Summer of Love, but I was too young to participate...
 
My dad emailed this to me this morning. I'm almost too embarrassed to put this up, but I'll throw caution to the wind and show you what I looked like at age 10. God I was a geeky little kid. I hated being a geeky little kid. All geeky little kids got were wedgies, and I got my share. This is partly why I wanted to play guitar and be in a band, grow my hair out and be a freak, as hippies called themselves back then. Freaks didn't get wedgies, they got rehab. ;)
 
A lot has happened in 42 years. At least I've lived to tell about it.

I just want to pinch your cheeks and tug on your ears!

Terri, I was going to email you and ask why you haven't been chiming in. I knew you were having problems with LJ earlier in the week. But if I had to put up this silly pic to get you back into the Clubhouse it was well worth it, my dear. ;-)

Yeah, my ears were rather tuggable. They're not that way anymore. I finally got them to lie down and behave.

Yes, I saw this one of you earlier today, Jaime. You gave me the courage to come out of the closet and show my boyhood embarrassement. I guess I should say, urm...Thank you. ;-)

You mean my default user pic? I guess that photo of me at 10 does show a glimmer of the fine young woman I'd become. ;-)

You look ready to take on the world--and, incidentally, *totally* like the sort of boy would would, in a few years, be part of a band :D (I mean it in a good way!)

Actually, shortly after that picture was taken my dad took me to NYC and I came back with some groovy threads and hippie beads. I even got my first electric guitar and amp and was in a band and we played a gig (at school in the auditorium). But I still looked like a geeky kid.

Thanks for saying so, though. ;-)

Thanks, I will take that to heart. But we had to figure it out for ourselves. It wasn't like you could say, "Mom, Dad, I wanna take private lessons in how to be cool." I asked my parents that and all they said was, "Practice your clarinet!" :D

On my flist I seem to be getting more comments than anyone this evening. I think I struck pay dirt here. Wedgie-style.

So when do we get to see the pics from your band days???

Sorry, don't have any. I really don't have any pictures of anything pre 2006. Until I got online I never had any interest in photograph. I do have a video taken in a club of my band Mr. Bitch. It's on VHS and the sound is not so good. Thanks for asking, though. :-)

I believe I have the female version of this pix somewhere.

God all mighty, I've tried to forget it.

My older sister got to be the freak, I got to wear the skull-tight braids and smile like I wanted to murder someone.

Put it up if you get a chance. I was surprised with the passionate outpouring to my geekdom that I got here. ;-)

Ahem. Nuff said.

Actually, we all look geeky in these old school photos.

Yes, the school photographer comes with a special geek filter on his camera that removes any shred of cool a kid might be trying to develop. It's amazing we're not all listening to Devo albums 24/7.

Okay, if you say so. Though I imagine you as the quentisenntial "hip chick" from age four and up! ;-)
