I've been tagged

I was "tagged" by LKW, which means I had to go to the fourth picture folder on my computer and pick the fourth picture in it and explain it. So I did that, and I really cringed, but I am posting it anyway in the spirit of the game. Ugh. So here it is: 

And the explanation: This picture was taken on Feb. 10, 2004. I just had about 7 inches of my hair cut off into a "swing" style (it's even shorter in the back). It was a huge change for me, and I wanted to show some folks in Texas (I lived in Memphis at the time), so I set up my super cool new digital camera (hey it was February 2004, people. They were kinda a novelty then). I put it on my kitchen counter and took the picture of myself using the self timer. I explain this for those who are very observant (and by "those," I mean Sarah) and who will note that it appears that I am not that much taller than a kitchen counter. I had to squat in order to get a self-portrait. As a side note, this was taken in our apartment on Harbor Town Square in Memphis. I LOVED that apartment. You could see the Mississippi River from our balcony and the Memphis downtown skyline from our front window. Aaaah. Good times. 

Another side note: LKW, who tagged me for this walk-down-memory-lane, makes a cameo appearance in the background of this picture. She's in the picture on the far left side of my fridge...wearing a red shirt and black pants. 

So now I am supposed to tag people now, and I don't know who to tag, so I just invite anyone who wants to play, to do the same: 
1. Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer
2. Select the 4th picture in the folder
3. Explain the picture

Ahhhhh the Harbor Town Apartment. Even I miss that apartment. And I totally remember your big cut! Didn't we celebrate it at SOL (um..what didn't we celebrate at SOL)? Thanks for the cameo. Were we stalking VIP or Elite to get that shot? :)

Cute! You look 13 in this picture. Also, nice large beer glass in the foreground.

PRECIOUS!! You look absolutely precious in this pic. Bek, I don't think it's a beer's probably a vase. It looks more vasey. Jenny, I don't think I would have noticed that you were squating/looking short in this pic. Shocking, I know. I had to go back and look at the pic after you mentioned it and I thought, "Sure enough, she looks short."
I DO notice that you have a toaster oven. I've never owned one. Rebekah's family is a big fan of the toaster oven. You guys should be best friends. You have that in common and all.

I NOTICED THE TOASTER OVEN TOO!!! I am not a BIG fan of the TO but Chris loves it---so much so that I bought him one for our anniversary two years ago. Don't go yelling about how it's not romantic---he bought me gloves.

Fun Tag! I'm gonna do one, too. I'll put it on my list of things to post. I made a list cause I always think, "I should blog about that" but then I can't remember what it was that my tens of readers need to know so badly...
