Earth Enemy #3,472

Back in the late '70s, my sister, Tootsie, contributed to the massive hole in the ozone layer by using an entire can of Aqua Net during this vain attempt to style my thin, lifeless, 5 year-old hair into an avant-garde statement.

Now the whole world knows what I have always known. My sister is evil.

I think I had that same shirt back in the 70's.

Thanks for the tag....I'm going to get to that in the next couple of days.

Wait a second, Dustin Hoffman is your sister? Say wha?

Falwless said...

P.S. That picture is so many different shades of awesome. Nothing beats kid pictures.

Red hair gives you wings!

Tootsie said...

I am evil just ask my daughter. I thought you looked so cute and oh so precious. hehehe No Falwless, I'm not Dustin Hoffman, but I did play him in a movie.

Red said...

You were a redhead?!?!?!?!?

BeckEye said...

I think there's kind of a weird tint to that photo...maybe it's from the scan. My hair was always brown, although there are some red highlights floating around in there. I wish I was a natural red!

Malcolm said...

I applaud your bravery for posting that pic. Now it would have really been evil if your sister sent you outside with that 'do while there was a stiff breeze. Go, Tootsie go!

The shirt, the hair, the look ... priceless.

I saw on some show that this woman's name was "Aqua Netta". No lie. They didn't have 9 months to think of a better name?

Bloody Awful Poetry said...

You're NOT a natural red? Funny..I always assumed you were.
Oh well. What do I know about redheads eh? There's only one natural colour round these parts. Anyone whose hair isn't black is an effing faker.

I'm sorry, I can see why you would hate the hair, but I think you look adorable!

Alice said...

heheheheheheh. that's AWESOME. my mom wouldn't allow hair products in our house, so i never had the indignity / pleasure / (mis)fortune of having this particular brand of photographic evidence growing up. ALAS.

Bluez said...

Ahh 70's hair. Gotta love those wings and cemented bangs.

Slave to the dogs said...

I'm not sure which would allow you to fly better - the wings on your head or that big flappy collar on your shirt.

Excellent job of sibling torture, Tootsie!

There's your Match.com shot, girl.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

OMG! This is too funny. I have a sister who is five years younger than me and I used to "style" her hair too. You were stylin!

cube said...

Bwa ha ha ha. I had the same little wings on the sides of my head only without the hairspray. They used to call me Astro Girl...

Hey, why am I laughing?

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
