I have certain pictures in my picture album that always make me think of celebrities. I offer them to you today in this post.
Yes, I was trying to copy her look on purpose. Shania was very hot then. And I was young and skinny and could pull off those clothes. (I think.) I was also attempting to attract any guy I could. At the time my daisy duke shorts seemed so skimpy. The shorts girls wear today have half the material of my shorts back then.
“Hi, I’m Ross. Ross Perot. Let me show you my pie chart…”
When my son was born, we were still in the hospital and I thought to myself “This kid has ears to be president someday.” I was thinking of the current president, Barack Obama, who has very prominent ears. But once I got my son home and saw this picture, I could only think of Ross Perot every time I look at it. I am very happy to report that my son has grown into his ears.
In 1999, I was obsessed with Kid Rock and his album Devil Without A Cause. Still a super great album, by the way. (I am very sad that Rap-Rock died. I was also a fan of Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Uncle Kracker, Rehab, etc.) I will write a whole post about Kid Rock at a later date.
My company, the defunct bookstore, encouraged us to dress up for Halloween at work that year (Hence the grey cubicle walls and flourescent lighting which appears in the picture.) So, I dressed up as Kid Rock. Some of my co-workers said from the back I really pulled it off. I was just glad to have a new reason to wear my “Debbie Gibson” hat I had bought in 1989. It also came in handy that I had prescription sunglasses.
What do you think? Pretty close? I realize my pants are not baggy enough, but I had to be presentable for work.
Lastly, I present myself, as an elf.
My mom and I were both dressed up for some reason I can’t remember. That makes this a rare picture of me in a dress. We took each other’s pictures by the back door. I’m not sure why. It wasn’t a very attractive location of the house. My mom probably said it was the least dusty or something.
And I have always thought I look like an elf in this picture. You know, the kind that make toys for Santa. I swear I have pointy ears in this picture! But, maybe, you dear reader, never got past my bug eyes.
