Blast from the past

I used to do collages all the time when I was younger. They turned into posters or covers of ringbinders, and they always featured things I liked like kittens or hot guys. All photos used were from magazines, and I cut them out neatly and saved them in little plastic folder until the time came to use them for the perfect project.

With the pending move, it was time to start cleaning out some of my stuff. The piles within my piles needed to be organized, and a few days ago I dug into them. I came across several plastic folders with photos of attractive actors and puppies. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had their own folder, as did others from the sitcom "Friends."

I decided it was time to let them all go. There would be no more cut-out projects, and there was no reason to hold onto all these little pieces of glossy paper. However, I quickly threw together one final piece of pictures that I just couldn't bear to throw out.

McGyver (Richard Dean Anderson) was one of my heroes when I was growing up. We did not have more than 2 TV channels when I grew up, but this was one of the shows I tried to never miss. Derek Jeter (top left) must be fairly recent (around 1998 or so), because I had never heard of the New York Yankees before I came to the United States. Oh wait! That's not true. There was a few mentions on "Seinfeld," but I wasn't really sure what the team was or who was on it or even how people played that weird game of baseball.

Ben Afleck, Matt Damon, Jude Law and Heath Ledger are still on my Top 5 list. I have also added Michael Vartan from "Never Been Kissed" and "Alias" (which I have never seen).

But with this final collage I will say goodbye to the unreachable hotties of the past and spend more energy on the hottie of my future.
