Women (or rather, woman) with fake guns

The good revfish has been posting a lot of old pictures, inspired by ericrowe's recent trip down memory lane. You should go to their journals and poke around. It's really mind blowing to think we were ever that young.

But, while we're on the subject of women with guns, this series includes a shot of me waving around a fake one, at the Zone LARP (at a CastleCon, IIRC). Back in the days when you could carry a vaguely realistic looking fake firearm at a hotel, and not have a five block radius immediately locked down.

Back in the days when I was about 50 pounds lighter. But I wouldn't trade my current life for that body, plus a big, honkin' jackpot. For all my bitching, I am a very lucky girl.

Meh. Not really very good times. They had their moments, but now is better.

Also, very beautiful. Then and now.

Ah, I hope people don't think I'm fishing. I'm pretty secure, really. But that may be in large part becuase I have such wonderful friends :)

I seem to recall that was the year that the hotels started wanting the fake guns to not be black, leading to a party in the parking lot with several cans of day-glo paint.

I believe so. Hence the little spattering of pink on my gun. I'm not at all sure how that improves security, really. You can spray paint a real gun, too.

Yep that was the year of the flourescent spray paint. The year before it was just little pieces of orange tape tied to them. Hell, the year before me and a few other Jack Dracs were carrying actual functioning (but non-firing) replicas of the real things, including a 12g assault shotgun that actually pumped and sounded just right.

Oh, the good old days.

grand times....
I think they were great, but I am enjoying looking at them from this distance and not having to go through them ever again.

Re: grand times....
I just wish I'd been properly-medicated enough to enjoy them more. And thinner. What's the use of looking the best I have in my life now that we're all grown up and married and not sleeping around?

Definitely cool to see and did you notice that my sweetie was referred to, just gotta look to see if there are any actual pictures of him. SMILE

Yeah, I saw that. He's old skool, yo! :)

Damn, you were thin. I noticed that the picture was taken when I graduated from high school and Mom and Dick (clears throat: I mean, Dad) were friends with benefits. I was also thin too. Not anymore!

Err, yeah. Well, there was a price for being that thin. Like, being pretty much miserable, and broke, and taking too much speed.

You, on the other hand, were thin for healthy reasons. Go, you!

Too skinny. You're hotter now.

Thanks, sweetie. You're way hot, and not stupid your own self.
