As a young pup in the 1980s I was rockin' a sweet bowl cut. When that wasn't edgy enough, my lovely mother decided to mix it up a bit and add a home perm to really jazz up the bowl cut. The result was an exquisite bouffant that closely resembled a fluffy mushroom. It is a wonder I had any friends at all. I always say that my awkward years started around the age of 5 and at 33 years old I am still waiting for the awkward years to end.
If I were to make a list of all of the "celebrities" that I have been told I resemble, Hayley Mills would be at the top of the list. Actually, it would only be a three person long list. One time a co-worker said her husband thought I looked exactly like Scarlett Johansson and another time a waitress told me I look like Maggie from The Walking Dead. Sure, I would love it if I looked more like a Scarlett than a 1960s child star but that's not the case. I will admit that I did and probably still do look like the picture to the left and I...will...own...it. (Insert Tyra Banks Z formation snap here).
So, why is my first post on this new blogging/typing/rambling adventure a picture of Hayley Mills circa 1961? Well, because that's what I felt like doing and this is MY website. So there.
