Mortified

Amidst all our packing, unpacking, cleaning, making messes and working in the shoppe this weekend, we managed to sneak out for a couple hours on Saturday night to see an awesome performance at the Make-Out Room called Mortified, in which a handful of people take turns getting up on stage and reading journals, poetry, song lyrics and letters that they wrote when they were teens. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.

Our pal Justin was one of the evening's performers, and he had people howling in their seats as he read diary excerpts from his teenage years. Mortified shows are held in San Francisco, LA, New York, Chicago, Boston, Portland, Austin and DC, so check their site for upcoming shows and make sure not to miss it!

This picture is hilarious. I have a picture of my sister that's almost a carbon copy of this. She was probably about the same age and in some silly pose as well, but her outfit was green and gold. Lots of sequins. I think she had a big o'l green feather in her hair too. I couldn't find the picture. Good thing--she'd be mortified if I showed anyone. I guess the whole point is that everyone has a picture like this (or journals, or letters, or song lyrics, or . . . )

Oh, yes they do have photos like that,
more or less,
sometimes more sequins,
sometimes less fringe...
either way,
blackmail looms.

What a brilliant concept! Just the other day I found my teenager poetry..and, well, dear lord, that was embarassing!

(By the way, I LOVE your shop!)

I do have a very similar photo... lots, like mom says. sometimes with sequined suspenders...
I have a friend who's done the mortified reading but I've never been. you've inspired me...
