It is my utmost pleasure to host this week’s edition of fun Monday; I can’t remember now exactly how the idea occurred to me, but I DO know it was as a result of blopping (blog hopping**) last week when Bethany, aka Ice Cream Mama hosted. She asked for volunteers and I jumped at the opportunity.
Here’s the challenge as lifted from an earlier post from last week (check out the link for some lovely photographic examples):
"Bloggers are notorious exhibitionists…we bare our hearts…we bare
our souls…and sometimes…SOMETIMES…we bare our faces. It’s not
your face I’m interested in, though…it’s YOUR HAIR! Pull out your
old photo albums (in this digital age, that’s like asking you to pull
out your vinyl records, or, egads! your cassette tapes, lol. There’s
something wonderfully nostalgic about vinyl; there is NOTHING romantic
about cassettes!) and find your WORST "BAD HAIR DAY" EVAH! If you’re
the unfortunate soul who has more than one, well then, post as many as
My Fun Monday post (alas) will be posted tomorrow. I’ve found it’s IMPOSSIBLE to blog when you’re not home to do so, and when you FINALLY get home after being gone for a thousand hours, you just don’t have the inclination :/. Although I had NO INTENTION WHATSOEVER of my "I never was a hooker, no matter what it looks like" (Part One here, Part Two here) posts BEING my Fun Monday submission, since I haven’t been home to blog, I also haven’t been home to LOOK for pics. Part Three it will have to be (she says with tail between her legs…:/).
Oh, and another secret I’ll letcha in on now…my husband has been out of town since Thursday…all this soccer-tourney-hoppin’ I’ve been doing has been without him around, something I wasn’t about to share in case there are any would-be scary soccer-mom-stalkers out there. He’s an hour from home as I type and the LAST thing I’ll be doing is LOOKING FOR PICTURES OR WRITING FOR MY BLOG when he walks in the door.
Here’s the list of fun Fun Monday bloggers, please be sure to visit each and every one for a laugh WITH them, not AT them (who are we kidding, we’ll be snorting coffee all over our screens all day as we laugh AT them). PLEASE let me know if the links are broken or if I’ve inadvertently left you off the list. If you haven’t let me know to add you, it’s NEVER too late :), I’ll update several times tomorrow and we’d love to see some new faces.

Come on GUYS! We need some testosterone on the list…bad hair can mean everything from a mullet to ridiculous sideburns to a sad little attempt of a mustache when you were 17. That was for the men, ladies, not any teen girls or menopausal women who give thanks for the miracle of waxing or bleaching "problem areas".
UPDATE: Carol aka She Lives just took me by the hand and led me through the instructions to add a "Mr. Linky" to this post. If you’d like to be added to Fun Monday–AND IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO BE ADDED, even on Tuesday, just enter your name and blog URL below. It’s as simple as that :). THANKS TO CAROL who was so clear I was able to do this the first time I tried! Wahhooo! It’s never that easy :).
I am up!!!!!
Mine is up too! Thanks Robin!
Saw your pics, girls, and they’re WONDERFUL! Pamela, I didn’t have time to read right now, looks like there’s a good story waiting on me for in the morning:).
Mine is up too. The bad hair that I seen so far is priceless.
Okay, I did mine.
And I’m wondering – would Robin benefit from putting up a Mr. Linky perhaps?
It’s a trick with TypePad, but I know the secret. 😎
I’m enjoying the story. I went ahead and wrote a post for Fun Monday. It’ll be up in the morning.
I’ve posted mine! This was fun!
I participate, but I cheated. I couldn’t help it (plus, I don’t have any photos of my own bad hair days). But I think you’ll forgive me when you see.
I had to skip this week. But since Robin is posting tomorrow maybe I will too.
AH! I wish I could get my hands on my 7th grade yearbook picture!!! but let me paint you a verbal picture. A thirteen year old girl who has a bit of chub cheeks, a mouth full of braces, and hair that she tried to curl unsuccessfully…it turned into a full head swoop to the left. Oh and I didn’t forget to mention that my mom just gave me bangs the day before. Its like my entire head of hair is pointing to my brace face. That and my hair says, “wow I am a flock of seagulls fan 6 years too late!”
Hi Robin just to say mine is published.
FINALLY got mine up!
Is it too late to take part? I am nearly up!
Thanks for visiting Robin. Glad you liked the variation;) on the theme.
I’m incredibly sad to tell you that my scanner has decided to go on strike (temporarily I hope) and I was unable to scan the pictures that I dug around for. PLUS I was unable to find the doozy that I was really hoping to find. I must have disposed of most of them when I was young and still mortified over it. But I am about to post a description of the offending image here in a minute. It won’t come close to comparing to the actual picture but it will give you an almost satisfactory mental picture I hope.
Hi Robin, I finally got mine up! Promise not to laugh, OK!
It’s done. Now I am going into hiding.
For all of you who’ve played along, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your pictures AND prose! For anyone checking in a bit late, add your name to Mr. Linky and you’ll be added immediately!
Anyone up to host next week? I’ll tag someone who no one volunteers ;).
Good job, Robin! It was hilarious seeing all the “bad hair”.
Now we have to have the Best hair day to make up for it!!!
I agree, Karmyn. What if “these” are the ONLY pictures people ever see of us? Perish the thought!
Wait a second, you didn’t post no stinkin’ pictures of yourself…stinker! 😉
I was wondering when someone would start using auto-inks.
WT, I’m a blogineer (blog pioneer), what can I say?
Now THAT’s some serious frizz… LOL.
Mine’s up (finally!).
Okay so mine is up! Took me long enough.
Thank goodness my mom scanned all those old photos in and uploaded them to Yahoo Photos or you’d all miss out on the worst school photo in the history of the world. I’m so glad they don’t make you prepay for school photos any more.
I’m a big fat cheater on this, but Pamela said my post fit, so THERE!
Dear robin. YOu can mark me as done (finally).
Pear Lady, I think I would’ve gotten the same effect by sticking my wet finger in an electric outlet!
Terri, I’m checkin’ out the peeps I missed when I’m done “here”.
Jenni in KS, I bet they made a lot more money then, lol! Yaaaeeee for your mom! I’ll be over in a minute :).
Kelly, I’m not above cheating…can’t wait to see how Pamela “guided” you :).
Dear LMM: WILL DO…NOW!
Oh shoot, I don’t have any of me and my bad hair with me. It is all in storage, right along with the scanner. Hopefully I can participate next week. Have you decided who is hosting it? I will if no one else wants to. But you have to share the Linky secret! 🙂
Julie, TAG!!! YOU’RE IT!! THANKS FOR VOLUNTEERING! I’ll forward the email Carol sent to me and follow HER instructions step-by-step (I didn’t even look at the Mr. Linky instructions). Trust me, it is absolutely, positively THE way to go! Wish I had READ her email before I copied all those links :/.
I am emailing you! YEAH! Now I have to come up with something for Fun Monday!
I’m finally recovering from the move and I love this topic. If I ever get my scanner unpacked I’m totally going to do it. (Late of course.)
