Why I Will Never Be Accepted into the Punk Community

Photo courtesy of Becca and the church Halloween party

Reason #1: I am clearly making the "I love you" sign, as opposed to the "rock on" sign.  There were a lot of people behind the camera laughing at us and I think the pink hairspray affected my brain.  I got confused.  But I do know the difference.

Reason #2: I do not have a good sneer, or an exceptionally long tongue.  I was trying to look tough, but people were making me laugh.  Chris, however, seems to be channeling Gene Simmons.  Ew.

Reason #3: My jeans are not ratty enough.  It was too last-minute of a costume to sufficiently tear the one holey pair I had.  Rest assured, if I do this again next year, the jeans will be ratty.

Reason #4: My tatoos are not cool enough.  They actually don't look that bad in this picture.  But they're attached to the shirt.  Chris's are better.  His actually look real.

In conclusion, it's pretty clear that I'm a double-chinned, grimacing, loving, pink-haired something (with a really shiny forehead), but probably not much of a punk.  Alas.


  1. You tried! If you could stop being loving and maybe start wearing some serious heavy eyeliner on a regular basis...

  2. Oh ha ha ha!! I can't stop laughing. Not only is the picture hilarious, but you crack me up!!

  3. This made me laugh SO HARD. Thanks. I needed the laugh. \m/ (that's a "rock on!" symbol, not "I love you", in case you were wondering. heh.)

  4. LOL! My mother-in-law once tried to give someone the finger (road rage) and ended up telling them that she loved them.

  5. Chris's tattoo sleeves do look real! If I didn't know him, I would think they were real! Your sleeves have too much white in them, but that is not your fault. I love you just the way you are!

  6. I have to be honest. I laughed very hard when I saw this picture. But I laughed harder at Alex's comment about her mother telling someone she loved them rather than flipping them off. I could totally see either of our moms doing that!

  7. "Channeling Gene Simmons" Ew indeed.
    LOVE the picture. :)
