I am bragging about my friend, Jenelle, today. Here is a picture of her then:
Here is a picture of me back then, too:
Here is a picture of the two of us when we worked together on the newspaper (important foreshadowing):
Note that we both enjoyed pinning our bangs back severely on top of our head. All the better to showcase the awesome big permed 80s hair. To say I was a little enamored with Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman is a fair statement.
This is Jenelle now:
And this is me now:Our lives have taken us on very different paths. Jenelle is a playwright, a journalist, and hangs with people on her lunch hour that we mortals get to see on the big screen. This Friday you can catch her on the E True Hollywood Story as she dishes insights into Luke and Owen Wilson. For real. She's the cute brunette wearing the red shirt.
You'll find me parked in front of my television squealing, "I know her!" as my kids make paper chains out of our electric bill and the dog chews on a diaper in the corner.
If only I had joined the high school newspaper staff sooner....who knows...
