Self Portrait Tuesday

This topic came at an excellent time, because I had asked my mom to bring all the old pictures when she came for Christmas, so I could scan them.

So...people are always telling me that I have 'strong opinions' and an 'attitude', which is probably just a nice way of saying I'm a bitch. Seriously, I am not, BUT I'm not just going to let someone walk all over me, either. While going through all the old pictures, I found these 2...one is me on Christmas 1967, so I was about 16 mos. old, and I'm sticking my tongue out at someone. I don't know who it is though. I guess I figured I already had all of my presents, so I could go back to being myself or something! Just seems pretty daring for Christmas morning! The other photo was taken on Easter 1968. It's my grandmother, holding my cousin, Kim,; my mom, with me standing in front of her; my mom's sister, Peggy, with my cousin Cheryl standing in front of her; and my mom's other sister, Rita. I don't know what was going on with me and Cheryl, but I look a little pissed off. Are there any pictures of me just being cute???

I just wanted to use these to show that this attitude or whatever it is, is nature, not nurture! It's something you are born with. You either have it, or you don't.

I don't think I was born with it. But I've learned how to be a bitch. I still look up to your bitchiness though...lol

Lori...I think these pictures are great! Love them! and I don't think you are a bitch...but then ...when being a bitch is "called for"...then you go girl! I come from a long line of strong Italian women...and being a bitch is born in us!!! LOL..Vicci
