Dancing Monkey High

The other night, Josh came over so we could spend the night gossiping and discussing summer twilights that took forever to get rid of. While we were searching my bookshelf for Anne Sexton's Collected Poems, we uncovered the Dancing Monkey High School 2009 Yearbook!!!!

I've scanned some of the pics for you guys to enjoy!

Check out the cool kids who stayed after school for extra-curricular activities!

It's the ice hockey team feat. Kristen, Tam, and Nathan!

Look at those nerds smart kids! Adam, FDot, Precious, and Mel helped take the DMH Chess Club to nationals!

Look at the marching band go! Björk, Michelle Branch, Vanessa Carlton, Jere Keys, and Michelle/Goblin Box bravely marched onto the football field during each football game and played the national anthem while avoiding all the food that got thrown at them.

Hey look! It's the awesome Yearbook Club featuring Syesha Mercado, Jennifer Hudson, Enrico, Josh, Brooke White, and Kelly Clarkson! These guys helped create the yearbook and I think they did an awesome job!

Give me a P! Give me an O! Give me an L! Give me a T! Look at head cheerleader of the Cheerioz Polt strike a pose with fellow cheerleaders Tatiana DelToro and Kris Allen. What a great-looking group!

Senior Superlative Time!

Here are the men who were voted Most Athletic: Dave S. and P!nk

Cha-ching! Chris was voted Most Likely to be a Millionaire... Looks like this prediction came true!

Since Josh and I were too fashionable to dress up in this clown costume for a yearbook picture, Ryan was named Class Clown! That high school used to be our funhouse....

Can you handle the beauty of the Best Dressed couple, M. Nico and Victoria?! I remember Victoria always dressed herself in all brand names. And when she couldn't afford it, I guess she had to steal it. And if M. Nico needed clothes? It was cool. She had tons of them!

Resident drama queen VUBOQ won the superlative for Most Dramatic. When he found out he won, he cried and cheered joyously at the same time. What talent!

I guess showing all that teef finally paid off for my sister Talita, who was nominated for Cheesiest Nicest Smile.

Somehow, I was elected Class Gossip.... Don't know how that happened....

Look at John, sucking up to his teacher just so he can get a good grade. John was voted Teacher's Pet and it came as no surprise to the other students at DMHS. After all, he always let Ms. Foster rub his belly.

While most of the students at DMHS cried themselves to sleep and rubbed their barren ring fingers sadly, Josh and David proudly strutted around the school looking cute and in lurve. So they won Cutest Couple and everyone rolled their eyes and made voodoo dolls of the couple. But really, aren't they cute?

Look who won the highest honor of all!

Yup, Michelle and Harry beat out all the competition and were crowned Homecoming King and Queen. While winning this most sought after award was pretty great, that's not the 'highest honor' I was talking about.... Nothing could prepare Michelle and Harry for the honor that was bestowed upon them when they were driven in the Homecoming parade by none other than Rhonetta Johnson.

Oh, and here's some nerd we found.

That was awesome.

Yay, Josh -n- David 4ever! Until our first actual fight after which we never speak again and I am ripped apart in a book of angry poems by Josh that wins the Pulitzer.

Love the new format. Well done.

I am a little sad I wasn't included in that yearbook, It looked like so much fun!! :o(

vuboq said...

ha! I had many many LOLs (and then I cried). *smooches*

Jere Keys said...

Well, there was this one time at band camp (yes, yes, I know... funky and played out).

john said...

First, the new look is great!

LOVE this post! Chris D. was my favorite and then I saw Craig's photo and then I wasn't sure. Thanks for including me and how appropriate. For the record, I think I would still let Ms. Foster rub my belly...

Milo said...

Loving the Class President! McFly eat your freakin' heart out!

Michelle M. said...

This made my day. I always wanted a tiara! That picture of Craig is fantastic. Chris D. looks so sleazy! Love it. And the john photo, and all the others. Tam - I don't even know what to say. That mullet. And Mr. M. made it in!

Now I can ask Rhonetta if I can borrow her silver sparkly boots!

Tam said...

OMG, I actually played on the hockey team in university. LOl Intramurals only but hey, I can play. :-)

Super job guys those are really funny and I'm lovin' the new blog colors.

goblinbox said...

I still sleep in that kick-arse band hat every. Single. Night.

Ryan said...

Was I the only one to scroll down until I found myself before going back to the beginning and reading through them all?

Polt said...

Ya know, I always that particular photo of us, because it doesn't show off my FABulous legs. I worked hours to look sexy in that skirt! And that cheer that you listed was the only one we ever learned, remember? Good times.

Love the new motif. Great job guys! You're skills are not up to Michelle M.'s level yet (but then who is?) but they kick ass!!!

HUGS...

PS,
Ryan, no you are NOT the only one. :)

Adam said...

hahahaha this made my night. Awesome job!! I look DAMN sexy in my photo. (Better than I really looked when I was in high school...) One question, though: Am I male or female in that photo?

that's J-O-S-H said...

Yes yes...Enrico and I are pretty important people. We're talented and funny!

PS, I click on K. Clarkson's name and what song comes up on YouTube?! "The Trouble With Love Is?!?!?!" RANDO aka why I am your bffl.

Mel said...

That's right. I'm straight-up nerd, yo. And me an' Precious gon' be in one a them BET videos one day. Straight checkmate, yo.

Yeah, I totally need to see that movie.

Garret of Jim and Garret said...

Oh, makes me wish I was younger and went to school with you.

Nathan V. said...

Wow....

It's true I've played hockey forever. Hockey hair is a bad scene.

Craig said...

OMG! Best post ever! I was getting worried there for a minute that I wasn't going to be included! Love them all but John's and vuboq's crack me up!

hoteltuesday said...

First, I must say that I think I look GREAT in the gossip picture. And Josh looks amazing as a plump girl. And Dave S. without long hair looks like a different person!

David: "I am ripped apart in a book of angry poems by Josh that wins the Pulitzer." That was the perfect comment! Good job!

vuboq: Could this award really go to anyone else?

Jere: Played out, but at least Willow is involved.

John: Thanks! And yeah, Chris looks pretty good with slicked-back hair. Then again, I think anyone looks good if they're holding money out to me!

Milo: McFly? Is that some 70s rock group?

Michelle M.: Knowing what Rhonetta wears on her feet makes me love you even more!

Tam: Really?! I was just putting you into the 'Canada' group, so it's funny you actually played.

goblinbox: I sleep with my phone every night! And yes, I'm ready to gossip at all hours.

Ryan: As long as you went back....

Polt: Excuuuuse me, but this has nothing to do with levels of Photoshop expertise cause these pics were made on yearbookyourself.com and that has nothing to do with Photoshop. Bow down.

Adam: Female, like always. Do you love the pic I used?!

Josh: Rando? How?? It can tear you up inside/make your heart believe a lie!

Mel: Are you gonna have light-skinned boyfriends too?!?! (BET video reference = +30 points)

Garrett: If you saw where I really went to school, you'd be happy you didn't go to school with me...

Nathan: Another Canadian hockey player!? Wow. I did a good job matching people...

Craig: Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Ryan said...

Enrico: McFly is a British group, but I'd guess it's a Back to the Future reference.

Milo said...

Enrico / Ryan - yup, it was the Back to the Future reference.

Craig said...

Aw, anytime I comment I just get a snarky reply! :-(

Xi_Heather said...

Excellent! Folk are rockin some pretty fancy hair styles, too.

hoteltuesday said...

Milo/Ryan: Never saw it.

Craig: That's not snarky!!! I would call it 'grateful.'

Xi_Heather: I lurve the hair styles offered on this website. I especially like the hair styles rocked by Jere, Polt and David.

Jere Keys said...

I have a wig in my closet that comes close to that. Should I wear it next I see you?

Jere Keys said...

Shouldn't Richard Parker be in the yearbook? Or was he the rebel guy who always ditched class to smoke behind the gym and was never around when photos were being taken?

Chris D. said...

Very creative post! I loved it. People have complained that I wasn't smiling in that photo, but I think it works better here with no smile. So it's good that I didn't smile after all. ;)

I like the new look of the blog. However, I think the black text on the brown background is a little hard to read on my iPhone. It is a easier to read on a computer screen, but I wonder if you might want to experiment with lightening it just a little. Or perhaps you could use an beige inlay behind the text area. Just a suggestion. Please don't YELL at me. ;)

Tam said...

Chris: There are these cool things called bookmarklet zap-its you can install that will remove all the color although I don't know if they'd work on the iphone, not likely. But you install them on your bookmarks toolbar (only works at home, not so well at work for me) and you click it and the background immediately goes white. Or if you are at work and need to suddenly delete all the pictures on the screen there is a zap-it for that too. Not that anyone HERE would be looking at inappriate pictures at work. Uh uh. Not us. Noooo.

Jere: Richard Parker isn't there because Baberz isn't there. We have to be fair!

Chris: I think it depends on the computer screen (easier to read at home for me than it is at work) but it's cool, I'm changing the whole thing soon. I'm actually switching to a new template (for the first time!), but I need to redo the header because now it's not wide enough. I'll get around to it soon.

Tam: That sounds complicated! Don't you just hit Apple+Tab and switch to a diff program?

Craig said...

ZOMG! Look at me! I'm commenting on Hotel Tuesday at work!!!!

Oh happy days! Thank you Enrico! You really do love me! :-)

Chris D. said...

Tam: thanks for the idea. It probably uses CSS to reformat the page. Not sure it will work on the iPhone either. It sounds like Enrico will have it improved soon anyway.

Craig: Yay for being able to comment at the Hotel more often!
