It's a carnival!


Because I'm such a follower, and because I haven't been able to come up with anything to blog about lately, I've decided to join a blog carnival!

The theme of this carnival includes lots of hairspray, makeup so thick that it could double for stucco on your house, and a soft focus lens.



Photobucket




So here it is, my entry for the blog carnival, my Glamor shots photo. (I actually had it taken at The Coverlook, I hope that's OK)


Yes, this is me, or at least how I looked many years ago with more products in my hair than my family will now use in an entire year.

I hope you enjoy this photo, because it might be the only one I post of myself on this blog, and really, it's not much different than how I look every day when I go out into public. (Just take away the big hair, makeup, add some crows feet, sweats and a few pounds and I look practically the same)

The thing I remember most about the day I had this picture taken was what happened after I left the photography studio.
I went with my mom to the grocery store, (I still had most of the makeup and hairdo in place) and as we were walking down the isle, a teenage boy walked past us. He was a store employee and passed us, pushing a very large cart with items to be stocked on the shelf.
I noticed that he was staring at me, and he must have continued staring because he ran the cart into the end display of cereal boxes and knocked them all over.

Yes, we still laugh about that.

If you have one of these photos, or any photo involving really big hair or a peach sweater, please head on over to Kristina's blog and add yourself to the list. (Please don't let me be alone in my humiliation)

Also, you can check out all of the others who have been brave enough to post their photos. I hear that someone is actually going to post the glamor shot of her ex boyfriend!

Come and join the fun!!


And if you are a Facebook friend of mine, yes, this is my profile picture, only larger, with more pixels.

I love the bangs! They have a zip code all their own.

Actually, you are really very pretty. I love the earrings.

You could totally be a Mary Kay saleslady with that photo.

Trapped and Screaming said...

I love it. LOVE IT. This is really making my day.

Jones said...

Oooo! This one is perfect! Why do most Glamour Shots have to have shoulders showing??? Guess that was the "in" thing, even for 12 year olds. ;-)

Kristina P. said...

Yours really is my favorite. I might have laughed for at least 5 minutes.

Vern said...

Wow. Just...wow.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! That is an excellent photo :) It almost makes me sorry to say that I never indulged in a glamor shot of myself.

Just SO said...

Okay that red dress thing is smokin! Along with that come hither look...

Alisha said...

Wow! That really took me back. I did one with a silver wrappy doo dad under a classic glamour shot leather jacket. Those things are really cool! Is it Glamour Shot law to have the biggest hair in the universe? It must be. Between your picture and mine, its a wonder the world can breathe from the hair!

The Boob Nazi said...

This one is so my favorite.

Debbie / Cranberry Fries said...

I always wanted to do the dress like that or the boa, but I think since I was so young they wouldn't let me. I always thought those dresses were SMOKIN, you hawtie.

jennie w. said...

That is some fierce hair!

rocslinger said...

Isn't it the goal of most women to cause some gawky teenage kid walk into something.

You look quite nice, hair and all.

Lori said...

Sarah Lindahl said...

Sorry, I am a moron and misspelled "glamour" in the last post.

Feeling great... lookin' hot. Bring out the glamour in you. GLAMOuR SHOTS!

Awesome. I so wish my wife had one if these taken back in the day. So funny.

Sher said...

Gorgeous!
I'm seriously loving all these pictures.
I'd post mine, but they've all been burned.

annie valentine said...

Yeah, I totally look that way in public too. In fact, this photo reminded me that I need to pick up some new aerosol hairspray next time I swing into WM. Awe.Some.

Glamor Girl Gone Goofy said...

Girl you are rocking that camera. Too funny, I a going to have to post one of my own. Yikes!
