So, old thread, now new thread. Because I have a few shots from a series of formal family photos to share from the end of June -- me, my folks and my younger sister Kara. WARNING -- they're all pretty damned huge.

The Raggett Corporate Board welcomes you

"Oh, just ANOTHER day on the golf course."

You mean this isn't an art installation?

"And I'm related to them, can you STAND it?"

I have nothing to say about this photo.

Now my secret identity is exposed! With great power comes great responsibility and all that.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 7 August 2004 01:50 (eighteen years ago) link

I'm a little weirded out that you have parents, Ned.

I imagine that there were lots of nurses, novocaine, and tentacles involved.

NOW STOP CALLING ME GAY ALREADY! (kenan), Saturday, 7 August 2004 03:07 (eighteen years ago) link

Harold, I never knew that your goofy ass was so white and flat and lacked an ass-crack.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 7 August 2004 03:07 (eighteen years ago) link

Ned, the I.T. guy here at the office just exclaimed that your sister's a "mega-watti hottie!"

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Saturday, 7 August 2004 03:14 (eighteen years ago) link

Well, she'll like that. :-) And of course, she is indeed. She and her young man Tyler have been a couple for about three years now, though, so IT guy will have to appreciate from afar.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 7 August 2004 03:17 (eighteen years ago) link

Actually, now that I think about it, in the 'nothing to say' photo you can see her rockin' tattoo on her right wrist -- it's a spindle of thread, while there's a stitching pattern and a needle that runs around the entirety of her wrist. She is a knitting fiend (usually doing so while downing beers at the local bar).

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 7 August 2004 03:19 (eighteen years ago) link

That's a combination that wouldn't have occurred to me.

Harold Media (kenan), Saturday, 7 August 2004 03:24 (eighteen years ago) link

My family is totally not the goofy picture-posing type. I'm a bit jealous.

Don't tempt me to post a picture of my ass, Ned. Remember -- gin makes a man mean.

Hey, you're missing out!

I'll post some photos from my trip snowboarding today as soon as I get them from my friend.

Completely and utterly not OTM except for the clean living part.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 7 August 2004 13:15 (eighteen years ago) link

your sister (well your whole family really) looks like a giant monkeybarrel of fun.

teeny (teeny), Saturday, 7 August 2004 13:39 (eighteen years ago) link

My sister could start a party in an empty room -- this is very much a compliment. Donut Bitch and El Diablo have met her and can confirm.

I am deeply jealous of, amongst many others, Jel, Stevem, RJG, 96, Jerry the Nipper, Roxy and Mandee for always looking unfailingly brilliant in photos.

Andrew and WUV! And beer! And snow!

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 9 August 2004 01:30 (eighteen years ago) link

It says 'ELWO' on that hand, and 'OD' on the other. It was a dress up party. I wasn't wearing my hat and glasses.

Andrew (enneff), Monday, 9 August 2004 01:34 (eighteen years ago) link

You're better than the Blues Brothers, man. You're Buckaroo Banzai or something (and same initials too!).

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 9 August 2004 01:38 (eighteen years ago) link

Synchronicity: my friend gave me a copy of Buckaroo Banzai for my birthday just a week ago. I've only watched the first few minutes but I don't know how closely I can identify with that guy. ;-)

Andrew (enneff), Monday, 9 August 2004 01:42 (eighteen years ago) link

You've got the music and computer thing down, just be a surgeon and fight aliens and you're gold.

Hrmm, you make a compelling case.

Andrew (enneff), Monday, 9 August 2004 01:47 (eighteen years ago) link

I don't see the shame in that. The lion is one of god's noblest creations. And a lion that makes mashups...well, that's like an ILXer's dream, surely.

No, it's OK to look like a lion. I was just saying.

Maria D. (Maria D.), Tuesday, 31 August 2004 21:02 (eighteen years ago) link

They're Nike Air Rifts, in grey and yellow. The split toe is really comfortable and I love them as walking shoes. Plus, being some kind of stretchy mesh thing, you can chuck them in the washing machine if they start to smell (though a handful of extra pairs of tabi socks beyond the ones you get with it do wonders too).

Has no one else seen those adverts for AOL with the English bloke who goes on holiday in Mexico? Jeez! Where would I get a screenshot of that? Cause he is a DEAD RINGER for Dog Latin. It's quite freaky, really. Don't make me go looking on the AOL site or something...

hello everyone... i've been a lurker for a while now, but i gotta come out of the closet for this one. the guy in this ad is a friend of mine, ben. he's a welsh rapper and in a band called arkane... i can't get the top bit to go in italics like everyone else does. i don't really understand computers....

trixielixie, Sunday, 5 September 2004 23:49 (eighteen years ago) link

this.. is.. weird. i still haven't seen the advert. hi trixie!
