Smacksy Saturday Photo: I Was A Teen Elf

So this is 16 year-old me at my holiday after-school job at the Capitola Mall. My friend Scott, also 16, is Santa.

This is not the primary thing I would like to have in common with David Sedaris, but so far, it is.

You have 20 shopping days left, less if you're doing Hanukah. Happy Ho Ho.


  1. 20 days? What am I doing reading blogs? I should be shopping! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  2. You are so pretty.

    And what of all of us straight moms wanting to be David Sedaris. Minus the boil.

  3. Oh, I am so glad you shared this. Who didn't work in the mall at 16, right? I sure did, but got away without the elf costume. I am kind of wishing I didn't. ;)

  4. I love that your lipstick matches your tights. There's no way I could pull that one off!

  5. You're gorgeous! And it makes it a lot less creepy that the Santa is your age. A little fuh-reek-ay, but not creepy!

    I never had cool jobs like that. I was too busy sneaking around at the after-hours clubs selling drugs. Stupid past full of bad choices! LOL!

    And I love your puffy bangs. That sounds sarcastic, but it's totally not. The whole thing reminds me of a Bettie Page layout I saw once...
