Friday Flashback: The Yearbook

I'm brining over my last post from my LiveJournal Blog.  Please tell me your funny yearbook inscriptions!!


Today was my daughters' last day of school.  *sniff, sniff*  So of course, this week kids were running around the hallways, yearbooks and markers in hand, begging each other for signatures.  Can't you just feel the memories flooding back to you now?


I remember my freshman yearbook cover in particular because I got my name embossed on it.  Or rather, my nickname.  DOLPHIN.  Yeah, you heard that right.  I was a marine nut, my last name was Dalton; the nickname is sort of obvious. *head-palm*

My sophomore year I was actually on the yearbook staff.  Because I'm a sucker, I ended up in the ads department, making those sappy end of the year farewells to seniors and selling advertising space.  That was a one-year gig.  I was pictured a lot in that one though...

Skip junior year.  Nothing memorable comes to mind.  Senior year.  Yearbook theme: Paper or Plastic.  (It's been 15 freakin' years and I still remember that.)  The theme was all about choices we would be making as we enter the real world.  Seniors in general always featured prominently in the yearbook, so this might be another reason I recall it so well.

I wish I had my yearbooks close at hand so I could go back over the inscriptions.  (Darn you, storage unit, not being at my house.)  I'm sure there are some things in there that would make me laugh, blush, cry...  I remember the prettiest girl in school & our homecoming queen writing in my yearbook one year that I was beautiful.  It was memorable because she misspelled beautiful wrong.  At least God didn't give her brains and beauty.

I remember my best friend and I had an inside joke.  We both took French and one day I did her a favor.  Instead of telling me "Je t'aime," she said "Je aime tu."  She wrote that in my yearbook one year.  I think sophomore??

Anyway, that's my little trip down memory lane.  I'm sure you all have some good yearbook follies you can share.  Please dish!

When I looked back through my best friends yearbook, I noticed each year I had a new "Julie (hearts) new guy" Meaning, each year I liked someone new!

I saw your comment on Sheri's blog, where you mention that your husband and father are Army vets. I wanted to let you, and them, know that I appreciate their service.

Thank you, Julie. I will let my husband know.

Thanks for posting your yearbook comment. LOL. That sounds about right. ;)

I'm not sure I'd go with more than one or two at a time, though, as I think it might get too confusing with all that feedback!
