Preparing for Ike

There was a lot I did to prepare for Ike. I made sure my iPod was charged, I loaded up on Halloween Oreos and bottled water and filled my car with gas. You know…everything you do before hunkering.

I had every intention on keeping everyone up-to-date via Facebook and Twitter. While having a conversation with my friend Rebecca on how I hoped that my Blackberry would work after the storm hit (realizing that it would be my only form of communication since power would inevitably be out) she had a mini intervention with me.

REB: “Lincee. You need a new FB picture. Chewbacca and the Ewok are a little dated.”
Lincee: “Seriously? Chewy is awesome (making wookie sound) and who doesn’t love Ewoks?”

REB: “I’m just saying…it’s time to change.”

Whilst pursuing other profile pics on FB to get new ideas, I noticed the Ottos had all changed profiles. Will, Tara and Nancy Jane (married and Will’s sister) had used an AMAZING new tool that can be found on www.yearbookyourself.com.

Needless to say, I had a ball yearbooking my face into different decades.

I currently have 1964 as my profile pic, but I’m willing to take suggestions. Is there another year that better suits me? See below and let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

Ha! That’s so funny — not too long ago, I thought I saw you listed as a friend of a friend on FB. And I started yelling, “Hey, it’s Lincee!” Now I’ll know it’s you when I see the awesome 90s hair. 🙂

Love the comments! My vote is ’90…biased because that’s MY year, but hey, we all get a chance to let you know what we like right? Your 90 pic almost looks exactly like my 11th grade pic, which was actually 89. I miss the 80’s!

Love it! I was wondering how you did your FB profile pic. I vote 1990. Great look 🙂
Now I have copied you and am sporting a 1964 ‘do in my FB pic. Thanks for sharing!
