EIGHTEEN WAS A GOOD YEAR

Have you ever had an old picture resurface on Facebook? I have.


Q: Are you wearing pleather pants?
A: Yes. I was eighteen!

Q: Are those your tonsils?
A: You can't really see them. Can you?

Q: Is she drinking a Zima?
A: If it's not a Zima, I don't know what it is. Seriously... what is that?

Those pants weren't machine washable. They couldn't be dry cleaned either. If I remember correctly, I bought them at Rave for $10. I can't count how many times I wore them to the club. I wiped them down with soap and water a few times. That killed the germs, right?

This is an awesome picture!! I just found some of my teenage years over the weekend...I refuse to post them though. :)

Daffy said...

Zima....oh the memories. We used to drop Jolly Ranchers in them for flavor. *GASP* Did I just admit that outloud?

Ashley said...

Great picture! :) Thankfully I haven't had anything too embarrassing of me appear on facebook yet. But I'm sure at some point it wil.:)

Jennifer said...

Too funny... I just posted my senior prom pic over on my blog.

And, I believe that is a bottle of Boone's Farm wine in your hand. I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I'd recognize that $3 bottle of wine anywhere...

Yaya said...

Oh pleather, I had let that term completely escape my mind until now.

Amber said...

That is freaking awesome. I love it. And I still can't get over the tonsils.

The Head Eagle said...

I know it's only a matter of time, before a picture of me surfaces..

Lisa - The Heller Family said...

That is hilarious!!!!

Grand Pooba said...

Oh my gosh, I forgot all about Zima! I'd constantly be finding a stash of those in my brothers room lol!

Ashley said...

Haha my first question was totally "are those leather pants?!" LOVE the picture!

julietk said...

Yes I can see your tonsils LOL
But who cares no wrinkles in sight ;-)

Angelia Sims said...

LOL! Hilarious! I remember those leather pant days. You gotta love Facebook!

Melissa @ Cellulite Investigation said...

too funny!

chele said...

I've never tried a Zima but I actually owned a pair of leather (not pleather) pants. I would have to go into hiding if some of my old pictures resurfaced.

Happy SITS Day!

Aleta said...

First day of school.. grade 9. My poor mother.

Yummy Mummy said...

Didn't we all have a pair of those pants when we were 18? If I recall they made everyone's a$$ look incredibly slaptacular and who didn't want that at 18? Who doesn't want that now...hmmm...maybe I should go find a pair...

Joann Mannix said...

Hi, over from SITS.

Holy Wow, those pants are just the schizz.

I got some of my best flashy clothes from there. Remember the smell in that store? It was bad. Like horrifyingly chintzy fabric smell.

That is one fabulous picture and your friend's bunchy socks ain't bad either.

Erin said...

LOL. gotta love rave..you could purchase a whole new skankified wardrobe for $100 or less!

Marie said...

I too have had old pics resurface on FB, pics I didn't even know had been taken, too funny.

Julie {Angry Julie Monday} said...

I actually posted my own hideous photo last Friday. My entire post was dedicated to Zima.

Date Girl said...

Oh gawd. I had a pleather skirt in high school I strutted around in. I also had a pleather jacket to complete the ensemble. Cringe!

AmberRay said...

I love old school pictures. It is a cute one and seriously what is she drinking LOL.

Jackie at 3littleones said...

haha!! I've been lucky to not have a fb flashback yet!! I remember rave - great store for cheap clothes back then - lol!!!

LisaDay said...

Not that germs were an issue.

Happy SITS day.

Nolie said...

I have had FB flashbacks. Courtesy of my mother. Grrrrrr. Love the pants.

kp said...

I miss my pleather pants =(

Charlotte said...

LOL, I love that you wiped your pants down with soap and water. Pretty sure I did that way back when (and sprayed the cigarette smoke-filled clothing with Fabreze).

thatgirlisfunny said...

Lol! Yet another reason to love facebook! That photo is full of fun and laughter. You're still loads of fun to be around, SITStah. Well done on your special day :D

Carrie said...

one of these days I am raiding my parent's house for old pics and going nuts with some weird blog posts :)

Great shot! I think I had the same pleather pants LOL

Kim said...

How fun! I may be too elderly to have something like this reappear??

simplysandi said...

Stopping by from SITS.. love the pants...

Bekah said...

Ahh, the days of scrounging up enough money to go to Rave and buy some trashy clothes to wear...wherever. Love the Q & A post.

April said...

Oh man..Rave. I totally shopped there. I think most of the clothes fell apart afetr 5 washes.

"S" and family said...

Happy SITS day! Have I had an old picture of myself on Facebook? I'm not on Facebook, but one of my kids' teachers told me last year that she saw a picture of me on someone's Facebook page. I think Zima was involved, and possibly some very cool 80s fashions...

Jessica said...

Is it weird that I miss Zima?
