Apparently, I planned a picture!post a while ago and then completely forgot. I don't even know what photos I have down. Let's see how this turns out - I'll be surprised, regardless.

I have now seen the pictures. I have no idea where I was going with them. I giggled at some of them.

When I was 16 my family and another family went on holiday to Virginia Beach. We had a Murder Mystery and I was Cruella de Vil. I won best costume. I miss my collarbones.

Merf took a picture of more of the outfit. That body was so useful.

When everyone else was asleep, I enjoyed taking pictures. I've always loved low lighting. WHERE DID THOSE COLLARBONES GO?!

If I ever need a reminder that I am not, in fact, spotty, I should always go look at old pictures. I used to enjoy playing around with makeup just for my own enjoyment. And putting my hair up in ridiculous arrangements. As I said, I was 16!

I believe I had four colours of eyeliner on: purple, blue, green and gold. Also, that is my eye. Thank goodness I don't have spots like those anymore!

I'm not sure why I included this one. I think it's because it was at Rowe (Camp & Conference Center), where part of my heart is. It was taken by someone else; I can tell this because my chest is in the picture, and I generally try to keep that out. I enjoy rainbow, in case anyone hadn't guessed - that hasn't changed since I was 16.

When I was 16-17 I had to take floriculture/floristry. We had to create floral arrangements. I don't often mention this since it's something I've previously tried to hide. I was in a class with lots of very preppy girls who listened to songs on the radio that I certainly couldn't name. This was not one of my best. I also had braces. It makes me giggle.

This is more the Kiwi I remember. "I don't want a double floriculture tomorrow! Om nom nom, stoopid flowers." I was wearing the hoodie that says "La La La La I can't hear you La La La La" which tended to amuse the teachers to no end. I also feel that I look like a Slytherin in this picture.

This picture is entirely for the dress, which my grandmother sewed for me. I love it but it's incredibly heavy. I wonder if it would still fit nowadays. My school mates used to play games that involved throwing things down my cleavage while I wasn't paying attention. I once went off to the loo only to find a bouncy ball pop out of my dress. (We believe Andi won.)

Taken summer '09. Andi, Andrew and me. We were proving that even though we'd grown out of high school, we didn't grow out of what made us 'us' - chucks. We all wore chucks. I've had my pair with the rainbow laces since I was 13. I came out in those shoes, with those laces. ("Why do you wear rainbow laces?" Jess asked during gym glass. "Because I like girls." "Oh, cool.")

The inside of the car when we went to see HP HBP in the drive-in theatre. Bobby grabbing the cooler, Dana watching from next to him, Andrew staring from close by and Antoinette's arm. Laura and I were also present.

This was the screen I saw HPB on. I didn't hear the last ten minutes because the car ran out of batteries - we'd all heard horror stories but couldn't believe it had happened to us, so we laughed - and it took us (me) a while to find a jump. All turned out well!

Last Christmas. My silly little brother decided to put a box on my head. I sat there with it on until he took it off.

And that is my ridiculous picture post that hardly makes any sense. Back to getting things done!

Wow, short(er) hair in most of these.

Giggled at the floral design. I have a Flori double on Wednesday I think. Those carnations actually look good and not half dead. Wow!

You were definitely a good Cruella Deville.

Picture posts are fun!
