Happy Girl's Day!

March 2, 2013

My friends, THIS is what you call vintage. Complete with some fantastic lens flare up in the left part of the photo.

That's me, to the far right. I went to a Buddhist preschool (????) in Hawaii and they dressed us up for Girl's Day. (which is actually on March 3, but I couldn't wait to spring this on you all.)

Have I just made your whole day happy with this hilarity? I'm especially loving how the girl on the far left is not feeling any of this biz whatsoever, and what's up with extreme side-eye going on with the girls in the middle? Clearly something very interesting was going on over there.

I think I'm TOTALLY wearing the awesomest kimono!

    1. I don't remember that day! here's what I recall about preschool: mistaking poi for choc pudding. BIG mistake! poi is ground up taro root and let's just say....IT DOESN'T TASTE LIKE CHOCOLATE PUDDING :)

      also, some of the teachers put some kind of liniment on my thumb so I wouldn't suck it. I was terribly unhappy about that!

  7. This photo is ridiculously adorable! I didn't even know (although it seems perfectly reasonable) that there were Buddhist preschools. Mine was Montessori/Presbyterian. We never did anything as cool as dressing up in kimonos although someone did bring a dead bird once for show and tell. Ack.
