What?! Like you've never been really hungry?

In my desperate attempt to find music instead of doing what I'm paid to do, I went to the console of my car and grabbed my CD collection and popped back in the office. Don't I sound all British? I could really go for some Lucozade right now speaking of... Right, where was I? Oh, yes. I popped back in. I copied my Montell Jordan CD (because that is how I do it), then slid the next CD in.

No music, only sadness. Instead of loading Media Player like I'd hoped, it greeted me with a pop up asking me to open the folder and view the files. I looked over my shoulder to make sure no one was looking incase I had something naked on there. Like pictures of that weeken... 2006??? What the hell was I doing in 2006 that I felt the need to devote a CD to pictures of it?

The collection of images spans a weekend back home. It was a time of family, then family and friends, then family, friends, an old converted school bus with a stripper pole, far more alcohol than should ever be consumed while in the moving position (I prefer to get drunk in a prone position but that's just me), and a girl wearing a shirt begging men to suck on her... So it was a Bridal Shower/Bachelorette Party weekend.

It's not so much that the pictures are inappropriate. They aren't revealing (except what they say about how my family gets down). As far as I can tell no one even wore shorts, let alone anything trashy. There is no photographic evidence of my sister taking her pants down in the street so she could pee before she went into the next bar... no we keep that gem alive in our memories. No, it wasn't any of these things that I saw when I opened the folder. All I can say is, "Holy balls! Who let me eat a whole other person??" When I say that I don't mean that I was pregnant. Oh, no. I wasn't anywhere near pregnant back then. My youngest was um.. ten? Just really hungry a lot of the time I guess.

Sisters Dena, Angie, Jeana, Beckie, Christina, (not in this photo Christy)
So, I did what any normal person would do. I emailed my younger sister the picture and said, "I know who the two girls on the outside are and the blonde in black. Who the hell are the other two?!" Her response was laughter and she said, "Bah Ram Ewe", which in Jeana-speak means, "oink".

I must point out that the girl in the black and white print shirt is my younger sister and in the 4 months that followed this picture she took off the weight and was a beautiful Nike wearing bride! 

Jeana 2008 - still cute as a button
