I logged onto my old MySpace page today.  I realized a couple things.

1) Poor MySpace. It wasn't all that bad.  Why did it have to die? 

2) I was way cuter when MySpace was around. Facebook apparently made me ugly. wtf? 

The URL I apparently made up for myself back in 2006 when I started my page was

Must have been during my nose ring phase...

This was around 2007 when I was still working at WPDE in Myrtle Beach. When you see any yellow in the picture at all -- that's usually what that means.

Found this gem under 'Profile Pics'. At what point did I think this was ever a good idea? PROFILE PIC? And, I probably couldn't afford it, but at least I was rocking the Starbucks.

Oh, I was so happy not to be working as a waitress anymore... even though I made more money....

Aha! My Face bling! It's teeny but it's there. I remember someone saying to me... "I've never known someone who wore a nose ring and listened to Ashlee Simpson." 

Nose bling again!  Oh the dirty comments I got on this one. I didn't care. It was my birthday.

Barfaroni! (Me, not Jimmy) This must be around the time Facebook popped up on my radar...

So I also used to do these questionnaires on myself all the time in the "Blogs" section of MySpace.
I'm going to cut and paste my 2007 answers and add my 2012 answers to compare Past Me and Present Me and compare. Funzies, right?
