Me, at 19



Hows that for a serious young woman with indecisive hair? I decided it is safe to post this as these days, with my blue rinse and bottle-bottomed specs, no one would recognise me

I recognise you Lilith. Did you ever go to a party in Hampstead, get pissed and wake up next to an ugly bloke with halitosis???

Lilith said...

Its possible Ratty, quite possible.

Scroblene said...

Fabulous hair!

The name with a face at last...!

Lilith said...

I loved that "do" Scroblene, inspite of dreading every raindrop and the high maintenance...not a terribly flattering mugshot but suitably unrecognisable!

Phwoar !!

Lilith said...

You are sweet E-K. One of my hobbies at the time was sitting in roads and debating the morality of nuclear weapons with young policemen, who used to find me very annoying and go away rather than arrest me....so we may have met!

I was on duty at the Trafalgar Square Poll Tax demo (Were you there ?). A group of unkempt people came up to me to have a philosophical discussion about the poll tax - Their dog was wearing a T shirt with "bollocks to the poll tax" emblazoned on it to which I pointed and said "Is that a political animal then ?"

Or the couple who were coming out of a shop with a new fridge that they'd just bought and I said to them (in full uniform) "Freeze !".

Then there was the time that the duty sergeant at the beginning of the shift was telling us about recent crimes in the area - one of them was the theft of early morning deliveries of meat from outside cafes. I said "Does this mean we'll be having a steak out, serg ?"

You see Lilith, I'm just soooooo funny and always have been (not !)

(Bet your still a looker now too)

Those three things were the only funny things I said in the police in five years ...

Rest assured, my dear, it would have been YOU walking away from ME. My resignation was such a loss to the community.

Lilith said...

But it was worth it just to say those things E-K.. Very funny :-) You secretly write The Bill scripts don't you? I haven't seen Hot Fuzz yet, but I am sure I will think of you when I do.

I missed the poll tax demo. I might have just about been all demo'd out by then..mired in the stomach of corporate capitalism, only to pass through, undigested, a few years later...

I'd have been too young then.

Pity.

I like the pic. It looks strangely reminiscent of one of those snaps that, turned upside-down, shows a completely different person. Having slipped a disc trying this here in the office I can advise that it isn't one of those types of pics at all. Shame.
