Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.

You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.

Flashback Friday

I come before you today groveling for forgiveness and it's not even 10:00 am yet.

See, I promised you a laugh-out-loud, pee your pants, spit milk through your nose funny Flashback Friday today.

It's ALMOST ready. The original bloopers reel was over 20 minutes long so I've been hand picking the funniest moments and re-editing it with some titles so help explain the maddness. And well, it's done but not perfected yet. And I don't want to show it to you until it's perfect.

So can I have one more week to get it ready for you? PLEASE? I know I can't keep making promises that I can't keep or I'll lose the 2 faithful readers I have. I just want it to be just right.

Instead I came up with something for today's Flashback Friday that I hope you find equally funny.

I know that what happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in I'll change the names to protect the innocent. :)

So I begin with a question. Why do we insist in taking embarrassing pictures of ourselves and our closest friends? Pictures that can be used against us at some later date? Why do we do this? Why?

See the weekend before I left on my mission I went to Vegas with my mom and her sisters. (My aunts, for those of you who are family tree challenged) For reasons that I still will never understand I allowed my mother to take this picture of me.

Frightening, I know. But that's not the worst part.

While on my mission my, er, not cousin whose name I shall not mention.....went on a similar trip with the same crazy chaperons. And she let them take this picture of her.

So, of course, when Mike and I were dating we passed through Vegas on our way to California and I coerced him into this picture.

Oh wait, I'm changing names to protect the innocent. That picture is not of Mike. It's some guy I may or may not have dated at some point in my past.

To his credit he was mortified by the prospect of this picture. It took a LOT of begging! And even after all my heartfelt pleas and arguments about how it's tradition he HAD to do it he utterly refused to stand with his head between them.

You're right, maybe I should've let these pictures stay in Vegas after all.

Wow. I am so shocked. I can't believe anyone would stand in front of the boob wall and have their picture taken.

One thing that would be interesting would be to know at what time the pictures were taken. Were they taken on the first day of the trip when the participants were still lucid, or at the end of the trip, at midnight, when they were laughing so hard and acting so silly that the drunks wished they had what we...I mean they...were drinking.

that is just too funny.

Those were the days!!!

I would NEVER pose for a picture in front of something like that.

(never mind the picture from last week---me standing with Aphrodite at a museum by the Acropolis)

I think we all know why Mike, I mean some guy you may have dated sometime is smiling so big.
