Sadly, things only went downhill from here.

I'm sorry, but that last entry isn't really complete without a picture from that era. Here I am with my friend, Sarah, prepping for another day of swooning over Matt.

This picture is particularly fantastic because it was taken on Twin Day. More specifically, it was the most dramatic Twin Day of my life. I chose to have over twelve inches of hair removed from my head in order to more fully match Sarah. That is why my hair is in such a unique triangle shape. It was poofing out in rebellion against my first haircut of my entire life. (Why yes, I still have the ponytail in my closet somewhere. Ew?) That is also why I was allowed to ditch my Harry Caray glasses for a day and why she and I are dressed alike.

Now, why we chose to dress alike in these outfits? That's one of the top ten questions I'll be asking myself when I invent a time machine.
