You are such a thinker!

...and I think you both went to my high school.

Melinda June said...

We look so unhappy. Why didn't they let us smile?

Dale said...

Were those taken for the Kristian dating newsletter?

Bubs said...

Wow those look so very 1980's TV show don't they? Clearly you're both thoughtful young people, but CP chews up the scenery with the classic "thoughtful lad with chin on fist" pose. It beats "thoughtful lass staring resolutely into the middle distance" every time.

Jeez, you two look so wholesome...who would've guessed that you would go on to rampage through the Streets of London, some two decades later?

There is however, a certain underlying tension. Especially you Coaster, makin' a fist...









"Punchman," indeed. Did you wind up doing your "Sean Penn impression" on the photog seconds after?

Coaster Punchman said...

Funny Flannery, we went to high schools in different states yet these two pictures look like they could have come from the same class.

We were too highly intelligent to need to smile.

We were always undercover, Dale. Like now how we're undercover Mormons. At least I keep trying to get Min to do that with me so that we can get into those temples.

Thanks Bubs. I win! I win!

Don't underestimate what a crazy SOB I was in those days, Write. Ask Min about my prior ability to fly into a terrifying rage with no warning in 10 seconds flat. Of course that was what I learned was normal behavior at home, and it took a few years of being around normal people to realize that was not the way of the world. I still pull those cards out at work when I need them, though. Find it highly effective in making people steer clear.

Maybe we need to update the blogger Little Miss Online Sunshine event of last fall (was that when it was? I am too lazy go to check) with a high school senior photograph posting. I think most of us are old enough that the pictures would be pretty funny. Get that organized, would you please?

The Freelance Cynic said...

My god your school took amazing pictures. Mine are invariably of a stupid boy with a daft grin. Don't know how he kept getting into my photographs though...

Chris said...

You're so pensive. Do you remember what you were thinking about?

If not, could you make up something funny?

Coaster Punchman said...

Lu, that sounds fun. However, at this moment I barely have time to write for my blog, reply to comments on my blog, and read others' blogs. I would love to host a High School Photo Pageant as Beth did last year, but it won't be happening any time soon.

If someone else wants to pick up on that, feel free!

There was a stupid looking boy in many of mine too, Freelance.

Chris, I was probably thinking "how fucking stupid is this picture going to look with this stupid pose they're making me do?" I actually got two versions - one has my face forward along with my shadowy profile in the background. I think that one is downright creepy, and I can't even locate a copy to show you.

Melinda June said...

I have a copy of that picture.

On another note, the post above won't let me leave a comment. I'd like to clarify that Martha is not code for MelindaJune.

Coaster Punchman said...

Comments fixed. But who should be more offended?

jin said...

I think you stole that photo!!!

It looks an awful LOT like Brian Bloom with photoshopped eyes.

Coaster Punchman said...

Funny Jin, I don't know this Brian Bloom. I will Google him right away.

Coaster Punchman said...

Ah yes, I see what you mean. There was a slight resemblance. I look nothing like that picture now, however. I've shown people pictures of me from college and they don't even know it's me.

Splotchy said...

What are you guys looking at?

Were you actually focusing on something, an object?

MJ seems somewhat content, but you seem like you are going to whip its ass, whatever it is.

Coaster Punchman said...

I don't know what Min was looking at, but my photographer had some straight porn on to loosen me up a bit.

"jew" "girl" said...

were those school photos or what? cute and pensive.

Doc said...

Dang! You guys look good! For my photo I had to hold the little card in front of me with my prisoner number on it. The whole senior class did. It saved the cops a lot of time and money.
