Last night imyril's other half showed me this photo, which he took in Puerto Rico in late 2005.

In the full version, imyril is visible. I've cropped her out because she doesn't put photos of herself on the intertubes.

Anyway, on being shown the photo, my thought process went like this.

"Oh, I remember being there! San Juan, at the fort. Dang, imyril looks good there. But whodat by the lamppost next to her? She's kind of a hottie, but she needs a haircut. I sympathise with that last bit. Story of my li--HOLY SHIT THAT'S ME."


(I'm still processing that this was taken more than ten years ago)

Oh that story is a hoot! More than adequate salve for having had to view such haircut!
I bet you thought it was so badass then..

No, no, I wouldn't give it any credit at all for being an intentional look. I'm pretty sure that's purely the "my hair's growing out after I cut my dreads off, dunno how to style it now" look.

Yeah, I felt a wee bit foolish once I did realise who she was!

And haircuts like that were kind of cute, maybe even hot, back in the 90s. :-D

Yeah, I know myself well enough not to credit this with being an intentional look. It's most likely "my hair's growing out after I cut my dreads off, maybe I'll do something about it in a few months...".
