blast from the past :)

One of my high school friends got back in touch with me about a month ago after a decade-long absence (I swear, I don’t know how people lose me: if you type “catie murphy” into Google, you get me). A few days ago she emailed me a photo of us from eaaarllly in college, probably 1990 or maybe 1991 (I don’t think my hair’s long enough for it to be 91, really), so I went and got my buttons of that photo, plus the other one I had, and scanned ’em in for her.

I’d been thinking they had to be both taken in the 90s, but Jos says the first one’s from high school, and upon hearing that, she’s got to be right; I can’t make the hair fit any other times. So Catie & Jos, circa 1988 & 1990:

Blast from the past.

My hair in the second two pictures makes me shriek with horror. :) I love the cut in the first, though. :)

Given our respective sorts of … not so much personalities, as Jos is actually quite cheerful, but perhaps more the way we come across, we both thought it was *really* funny that in *both* photos,*I* was the one in black and *she* was the one in white. That was not on purpose either time, but we really got a kick out of it. :)

    Sorry, momentary brain-fade there from cognitive dissonance, simply because two posts further down *my* FL from this one is this icon:


  2. I hate it when someone wins before I even realized there was a contest. Drat!

    Good one!!

  3. Shows what you all know. In college her name of choice WAS Shadowcat.

    I had forgotten about the color association we noticed. Funny! Don’t know if I am cheerful, but not forboding. I think the color association is a reflection of our tact and diplomacy skills – I have NONE, while you were very good at interpreting for me. LOL

    I do wish I had a copy of Cutter’s picture of the High Council with you as a valiant bard-type wielding a feathered pen as a weapon and me as a mercenary. *grin*

  4. Hair 1 – very cool indeed (a close friend of mine would have killed ot be able to get her hair to do that back in the day)

    Hair 2 – Gah! whimpers! So glad you got better!

  5. Shows what you all know. In college her name of choice WAS Shadowcat.

    It was not. :) There has in fact only been an incredibly brief period of time in my life where I used “Cat” at all, and “Shadow” was never appended to it on either end. :)

    -laughs- I vaguely remember that drawing. :)

  6. Oh, I don’t know. Her hair wasn’t that bad. Or are you referring to mine? *smiles*
    You should have been there when we decided to both go red to punish our friends for leaving us behind for the weekend.

    And you WERE shadowcat for a short time until it was decided that Marianne fit the picture a little better. And your peronality didn’t fit – you were not the cutesie little girl type. Thank goodness. I’d have throttled you. *grin*
