TP: Drink Up

Have you ever seen “That 70’s Show”?  I love that show.  It chronicles my high school years pretty well (with a little tweaking).

I was Eric Foreman, the solid middle class “good kid”.  Except I never dated Donna.

My best friend was Hyde, he even lived at my house for an extended stay a couple of times.  Although he took Kelso’s characteristic of dating everyone in sight.  At one point he was juggling 3 girlfriends at once.

We had our Fez, but they changed every year and were girls.

Our Kelso dated our Donna, and they had a kid together in 10th grade.

For us, Jackie never dated Kelso, but she did date our Hyde for a little while.

We even had our own version of Laurie, except she was definitely not my sister, and was created in the way-back of my car.

OK, it’s not a perfect match, but many of the episodes made me think of episodes in my life.

Anyway, the theme “Drinking Up” brought me back to those days.  And here are a few pictures I took back then.

(If anyone in these pictures would like to be removed from here, please let me know and I’ll take the picture off.)

Okay, that top pic is just scary. Seriously. That demonic face grinning trollishly over the beer can.... ugh -- the stuff of nightmares!

I like the bottom close up. That's a good shot.

If I was the girl in the stripes, I'd want to be taken off! Wait - maybe it's a guy?

I agree with Lisa - the last pic is cool.

Max Sartin said...

Alexia - Yeah, it's a guy.

We don't know the 70s Show over here but Bud is universal. Good advertising shot.
I wonder what that guy's hair looks like now,

Alexia is too funny! How about if we want to be included in the photo! Ha! Ha! Too late I know! Gee, too bad. Yes I have watched perhaps a couple that my own children shouldn't have seen with me, long story there, but oh the questions I've gotten when we used to watch that show together! Those were the days my friend...why did they end???? !!!

Cool pics from the old days!

I was in H.S. back then, too (graduated in 77).

Just about EVERYBODY had long hair, and wore bell btttoms (or at least, flares).

The first picture will make me laugh for days ;-)

Grad '78 for me - your photos bring back more memories than That 70"s show. Nice! And perhaps a bit cringe-worthy.

Max Sartin said...

'78 was my year too! Awesome time to be a teenager.

Were you ALWAYS this good with a camera? Seriously...what a great slice-of-life series!
