Also, a panel from a Lynda Barry comix which apparently really spoke to me.

Things That Are Mod-Podged Onto the Cover of an Address Book I Made for Myself in 1992, the Summer Before I Started College, In Which I Am Reasonably Certain That Only the Twin Peaks Screenshot Didn’t Come From Sassy Magazine

ANOTHER REASON TO BE WINONA RYDER

He would never date your best friend … would he?

“mike edwards is my future husband”

Screenshot of the dwarf from Twin Peaks, with the words She’s filled with secrets. at the bottom of the screen.

“i’m too pale”

Quotation from “Summertime Rolls,” by Jane’s Addiction: “ … MY GIRLFRIEND DON’T WEAR NO SHOES. HER NOSE IS PAINTED PEPPER SUNLIGHT. SHE LOVES ME. I MEAN IT SERIOUS AS SERIOUS CAN BE.”

Photo of Ann Richards

A profile of the Capricorn personality, which includes the sentence “Has beautiful eyes tinged with sadness and wisdom.”

The words Depeche Mode.

Emo teen brokenhearted poetry:
SPEAKING TO YOU
I FEEL GAPS THAT BEFORE WERE BRIDGES
AND SILENCES THAT BEFORE WERE WORDS
AFRAID TO BRING UP DRIED EMOTIONS.
I THINK BY TALKING ABOUT THINGS
YOU REVIVE THEM
LIKE RUNNING WATER OVER A SPONGE
IT’S NOT ENOUGH FOR US TO SAY SO MUCH
BUT STILL CIRCLE AROUND WHAT SHOULD BE SAID.

I have a huge stack of old Sassy magazines. And I'm totally pulling them out before I go to bed. Are you jealous??
I used to tell people all the time I was going to be the next Jane Pratt. Sigh.

this is just like my bedroom dresser that i mod-podged with magazine cut-outs and lone star beer bumperstickers. which is still in my bedroom at home. and which i spend at least an hour analyzing each time i am sleeping in my old room over xmas vacation.

Dude, you and me both, Lindsay. Only I can't drag out my old stack of Sassy because I cut them all to ribbons for collages such as this ModPodge masterpiece. Heh.

Bethie: Who can resist Singles? Seriously, who? Whatsamatta with your husband, yo?

Francine: interesting -- and wince-inducing -- what our old collages reveal about us, no? [cringe][forehead palm-slap]

Right. And why hasn't this been submitted at cringebook.com yet.

Um. Because I didn't think of it? CRINGEFAIL!

I used to think Jane Pratt was hot. I think that makes me bisexual -- gay for knowing who Jane Pratt was, straight for wanting to bang her.

Good to have Johnny back, huh? No doubt Panda, Bethie, Lindsay, Francine and Sarah B. were wondering where I was. What's that? You haven't told the girls about me? Why not? Are you ashamed of Johnny? Just because I write about self-pleasure and faggy poodles (unrelated incidents, sicko!) doesn't make me a bad person. Okay, maybe it does.

anytime i look at that dresser and see some mod-podged cutout that says "SEX" or "quiet fire" or "smirnoff" or "expensive porn star" i want to throw up.

quiet fire?

Oh my god, I thought I couldn't love you more. I was wrong.

Johnnybaby, I always knew you'd be the only other one in the PoodlePrattle bi-curious chat room.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT IT MEANS, EITHER. but just because of that, i am embarassed. like, what could i have thought it meant? that i was burning deep inside, quietly, and nobody knew and that was amazing? and what exactly was burning? seriously, what could that have meant to me? because i know what smirnoff meant to me. agh. it meant i passed out on a sidewalk outside of a party one time holding a bag of tacos and when i came to, i was still holding the bag but someone had stolen all the tacos. and they were taco cabana tacos too. what a waste.

The deadline isn't for another month! Submit! SUBMIT!

Sarah B. says jump, and I don't even bother to ask how high -- I'm too busy GETTIN ON IT LIKE SHE SAID! heh.

Francine -- seriously, I am laughing my fucking face off over here. The sad part about MY collage, at least this one (who knows what other horrors lurk), is that I do, in fact, remember EVERYTHING I WAS THINKING WHEN I CHOSE THESE ITEMS FOR THE COLLAGE. For real. I die.

Cannot stop laughing... tears ... gasping ... where were you all when I was a morose, angsty teenager!?!?
