Blast from the Past - Before the NFG rocked the F

January's a busy time around here at CDS Enterprises (A wholly-owned division of NFG Worldwide, Ltd.)  As such, I don't have the time to rant anew - at least not in print.  Being as we are four months from my cresting (and subsequently being 'over') the hill, it seems only appropriate that I share with you some crotchety posts from the past.

We're jumping into the Wayback Machine this week, courtesy of an old college friend on the Facebook.

Because if you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?

Me, apparently.  The more I look at this, the worse it gets.  Is gel?  Why yes, I think it is.  And those sneakers.  I'm sure that was the style, but really? 

But hey, at least I wasn't fat.  That's something, I guess.  Though NSG doesn't have quite the same ring.

NAWG--Nerdy Average Weight Guy?

Aw, you don't look THAT nerdy! In fact, you look rather adorable.

We all wore flannel and sneakers back in the day. At least the shirt is untucked and there is no pocket-protector in sight!

Great picture, Elliott! It's fun to look back and see what has changed over the years. Cool that this came to you through Facebook too. :)

You look like the kind of guy I'd be friends with.

I had a lot of nerdy friends.

Kari said...

You were rocking that flannel, my man.

Elliott said...

Kari, it was 1990 - I was grunge before grunge was a thing. Except that I bathed.

I don't know Frank. I may not look it in this picture, but I did have standards...

Bev, never a pocket protector.

Jenks, I think I was actually below average weight here. nbawg?

Thanks, Daisy. It's fun to get these old pictures sometimes. At least I was out of the awkward years here. Well, awkward-looking, anyway.

Hey, you're the one who turned down free bacon.

Just sayin.

Be nice and share!
