What were some of the things they wrote you were most likely to do?
I really try to be good but it just isn't in my nature!

"Have a nice summer."
And they were right!
No, actually, I didn't buy a yearbook senior year. My school didn't actually give you your yearbook until the year after you bought it. In other words, your senior yearbook would be mailed to you during the first semester of college. Seemed kind of a waste of money since none of my friends would be around to sign it.

That my artistic talent would take me far... righteo...here I am in Missippissi, about as far as you can get without losing your mind. (BTW, if you see mine, give it a slap on the butt and tell it to get on home. Dinner's ready...)

No one really made any predictions, but all 4 years there was a trend that was hard to miss... the words "unique" "interesting" "strange" and "weird" appear in at LEAST half of the messages.

Well, I haven't gone through high school yet, but here is what my friends wrote on my 8th grade yearbook:
"Have fun in the sun (How's that for a cliché?)"
followed by another friend writing:
"Get laid in the shade."
It seemed more funny at the time. Heheheh.

It's mostly unintellegible crap.... hard to believe most of them have great careers! = )

People must not write predictions anymore, I've never gotten one. Maybe I'll have to do that next year. However, my favorite yearbook message ever is simply "Can I borrow a red crayon? --Will"

I can recite only one scribble in my year book and that was a quote from an old Hendrix song written by one our football/ brainiacs (Yes! He was smart & played off. tackle):
"If a six were a nine . . ."
I was not a much a Hendrix fan, just heard the usual radio airplay stuff until I actually listened to a complete album the year after school.

I didn't let anyone touch my yearbook, me and my friend put too much time making it. We were part of the year book commitee and ended up making about half the book. The other half is the usual cheesy crap about how wonderful the school is and how everyone runs around holding hands and singing songs...
Our half was full (non-corny) jokes, cynical comments about the quality of our education, great artwork (the friend who helped me is studying to be a graphics designer now) and moustaches drawn on pictures of teachers we didn't like.
Wasn't letting anyone get their greasy hands on my yearbook.

Now those predictions are typically made by the staff of the yearbook thingy, at least at my school. My friends tended to write sappy or funny mesages. The yearbook staff would make predictions for people. I was a going to be a mad scientist, I think they said. Another person was gonna be a porn star.

the closest thing i have to a prediction is, "I hope everything goes well for you in the future. You are a very unique person with great qualities." but other than that it's just your regular advice.. you know, like "don't let the overalls man make you too sad" and "you should try and keep your pants on around me."
oh. and we can't forget this one - "you're the sexiest babe alive!" with an exclamation even! :)

My $.02 :In all of my yearbooks, I was always told what a sweet, innocent yada yada yada...and dont ever change...several of them even prompted..."you ever gonna lose your damn virginity?" and in the same breath "you'll always be so sweet and innocent" yada yada yada...Well, if most of them could see me now, they would see that I had disappointed them...lmao

You guys are lucky. My high school yearbooks never came in time for people to actually sign them. I had to bring in black sheets of paper for people to sign and stick them in the front cover when I got the real thing.
Mine all said I was going to save the world. Little do they know. Mwa ha ha!
They also all called me smart. And not one of them even mentioned how studly I was! :(

Junior year - A beautiful girl that I thought was nice, never asked her out. She wrote in my yearbook that she wanted to do some wonderfully nasty things to me. Needless to say, this was very nice to read.
Unfortunately, I didn't see it until I was living in another state a month later.
You can feel free to call me Mr. Tied for 26th place on the favorite poster's list.

Some guy whose name I now forget (he didn't sign it) wrote "When you own 1/2 the world, could you, would you ... please give me a JOB?"
World domination was never exactly on my list of things to accomplish in this lifetime, so don't ask me what put that into his head.
