It was the 80's

I went to college in the 80's. The early 80's.
Sometime last winter my college roommate got in touch with me when she was going to be driving through the area. She suggested we meet for a drink on her way by.

I met her and her college age daughter and a restaurant just off the highway and we fell into familiar conversations as if we left our dorm rooms only recently.

She came armed with a photo album. I had no idea there were pictures...

She sent me a couple recently.

This is me and my roommate. I am guessing this is Spring Weekend -since we are drinking out of plastic cups. They rolled in trucks of beer with spigots on the side so you could basically refill all day long.
And yes, I am smoking. I was never without a Marlboro (and a Michelob... and a bag of weed).



Here I am with my favorite pals. Notice the black concert T. Key wardrobe essential for young lesbians.

I hear there is even a picture of the goldfish I bathed in the bathroom sink after he 'accidentally' fell into a bong.
Hmm, I wonder if there are pictures of our elevator keg party?

Total babydyke in that second picture!

Perhaps the Michelob and weed are why you didn't know there were pictures from college? ;)

O.M.G. These pictures bring back so many memories for me too! Just change the faces and those are me and my friends in the early 80's. I have a scrap book in a closet somewhere...

Must scan some pics in and share as well. New blog fodder.

Bwa-hah-hah-haaaaa!

Love the memories. Just swap the Mich and Marlboro's for Miller Lite and Winstons and it would be me.

Great pictures! Mine from that time would look very similar!

Yeah, I don't even want to know how a gold fish 'accidentally' fell into a bong. That would have freaked me right the hell out. And I'm paranoid enough the way it is, let alone having to worry about fish getting into my bong.

ya think thats mayhaps why you dont like to fish???

Nice... you looked like you were 10 in these pics... sure you weren't in elementary school when this was taken?!!!

Weese, this is the funniest post I've ever read here. The picture of the goldfish falling into the bong and the subsequent life-saving bath is hysterical!
