the day I became the butt of the interwebs

 

If it were only not true.

I was minding my own business Tuesday morning when a message arrived with startling news.

A sweet friend that I think I’ve seen exactly once in the last 20+ years sent me a little heads-up:

So, I was scrolling through this little thing a friend posted on Facebook this morning. Just flipping through on my phone, kinda scrolling fast, 'cause it was funny, you know, but not like super funny or anything. But, then, hey, hold on a second, screech the scrolling to a stop half way through, because YOU are in this thing!! What?!

 

And then… I clicked on the link she gave, and saw a title that made my eyes widen (pun intended).

glamour shot

 

I knew by the picture that this was going to be on par with Awkward Family Photos or People of Walmart.

And sometimes I really dislike being right.

 

I reluctantly clicked on it, and my retinas were immediately traumatized.

 

Remember how you were supposed to have loads of makeup, hair teased to ridiculous heights, popped collars, satin gloves, the whole bit?

Well I blogged about it once up on a time.  Remember when that poor girl was exposed for the whole mall to see?  I posted it three years ago.  And then y’all hassled me into posting the pictures that I had taken over 20 years ago?

So then I did?

Well, then THEY did.

Steal them, I mean.

 

Buzzfeed stole my ridiculous Glamour Shot picture off my blog.  Which, y’know, is all kinds of humiliating funny.


I giggled about it until I saw that the post had been viewed…

 

FOUR AND A HALF MILLION TIMES.

 

 

Oh.my.word.

 

And for some reason, it’s getting shared around again.  So I thought I’d do some damage control and post the one semi-normal picture here, so y’all don’t think I’m some weird satin-glove-wearing chick with a random floating head against a dark background.

 

And by semi-normal, I mean please excuse the insane hair.

Now, just so I don’t have to suffer alone… here’s my sister’s shot.

(I’m safe because she can’t unfriend me this close to Christmas.)

Keep in mind, she was twelve years old.  TWELVE.

So… can you figure out which one I am?  Because people didn’t believe me at first.  But then, c’mon…, becoming the butt of an internet joke is totally up our alley, right?

 

 

Hey, at least it wasn’t People of Walmart.  WIN!

Yeah I did them about 14 years ago lol.. We won't discuss them but let me say YOURS are gorgeous.

Buckeroomama said...

Er, I think I might have one of those. I cringed when I saw my hair.

Nancy Jenrette said...

Well your first picture they posted wasn't that bad. Your second one that you posted is downright gorgeous. I have one of those myself in the leather jacket. .. too funny! Lol

Tiffany Bleger said...

You and your sister are totally my heros. I always wanted to do one of those, but mom wouldn't fork over the $$$ for me to do it. I think you both look awesome.

Amanda W said...

OMG! Loved it! You look pretty in teal! that "intense" look of confidence... makes you bada$$ in my opinion. ;)

Amy said...

Totally better than people of Wal-Mart. Come on! You WISH you could make it to people of Wal-Mart. LOL

BEAUTIFUL! The end.

Could you do your hair like that for your Christmas card photo this year? Pretty please????

sara said...

so much better than people of walmart!! LOL!!

Angie Vik said...

Oh my goodness. I can't believe they'd use your picture without asking. Did you write them and complain? I clicked the link to the article and had a good laugh at the pictures. Yours is mild compared to some of them. At least they didn't put names with pictures. This only reinforces one of my favorite expressions, "Just when you think you've seen it all..."

danette said...

oh my word... that is awesome on so many levels :). Love it! And you are beautiful, then and now!

Judy SheldonWalker said...

The photos are stunning! Who hasn't dreamed of having a glamour shot. Ever look at your favorite actress before and after make up?

Furry Bottoms said...

You are BEAUTIFUL! I never had Glamorous shots taken. You look like you could have been a Greek princess in a past life.
