I think this is my best thread idea that I have had yet. Thanks for posting all the cute baby pic and what not. I think it makes everyone a little more human and real. Sorry to all the others who were pre-embro state. I guess I could have picked a more recent year. To make all the really young folks feel better I will post one of my baby pic.

1986...I was in 7th grade having the best time in elementary. God, I'm old, but I still remember that far.

I don't have many pics of me from that year. I have some in '87 when I graduated from college (and just one then - my sister somehow ruined the role of film we used at graduation). I have some in '83 when I dressed up as Doctor Who (:sheepish grin and I have some in '88 when I went to Germany. But the only one I could find from '86 was a license. For some reason, it wasn't taken from me, so I kept it.

Now, if you actually think this is a good pic - blame it on the poor cameras of '86. Still, as I look at this pic, I see such an innocent person. I looked at a few more recent pics and that innocence is LONG gone.

In 1986, I was still in college. I worked as a waiter to pay for my schooling. Waiting tables, while tiresome, actually kept me in good shape (as I worked a lot of parties in the upstairs room). Now, there are these rolls of fat that just keep popping up. Blah... In '86, I still lived at my parents' home. In '87, I graduated, obtained my first job as a chemist and moved out of my parents' house. I'm happy to say that I've never moved back in since.

Oh yeah, I guess I should mention that I was probably 21 when this pic was taken - soon to turn 22. Ah... youth. Now I'm 37 soon to turn 38. What the?!?!

Daaaaaaamn I feel old!

I was 7 years old, so 2nd or 3rd grade I guess? I was probably hanging around a lot at my friend Jon's house with my other friend James, playing basketball a lot and building tons of legos . Don't think I have any pictures from back then (at least not on the computer)

if you're 23, and I'm 23, then how could you be 8 1/2 in 1986?

My parents built a new house.

I was 9. I believe that was the year my parents divorced and my grandfather died. There were good things too, I'm sure, but elementary school was harder than any other time for me. You couldn't pay me to go back. We've packed our scanner so no pics... oh darn!

Oh, and my hubby was a junior in high school! It's a little weird when you think about it. He was listening to U2, I wasn't. I was a late bloomer as far as my musical tastes. My mom only listened to contemporary Christian music so I didn't know much about pop music until middle school. I think my first cassette tape was the Bangles (5th grade) hee hee.
