“what’s up, erica? it was fun getting to know you in band this year. have a great summer, stay cool!”

Sound familiar?

That’s probably what 75% of all messages in my high school yearbooks say (substitute any club or class for the band line). Those other 25% are from people with inside jokes, my BFFs, or teachers. Yes, teachers. I was a nerd.

I recently discovered the newest and best phenomenon and the World Wide Web (ha). Have you seen it? It might bring back some great flashbacks for those of you who reveled in high school pride in the decades of old…

I could be so entertained by this for hours on end, trying various combinations of people, years, hairstyles, etc. This is genuis…much like the holiday-time crazy of

So, I took the liberty of transforming some of my favorite people (who I knew wouldn’t get upset about having their faces attached to these wonderful time capsules of fun) into their past yearbook alter egos. I knew my all-time BFF Kasie would find this humorous…after all, we didn’t look too different than this when we’d “make-over” ourselves to record our “TV commercials” on her parents’ video camera. And, naturally, our husbands got added into the fun.
