21 Questions

It's a meme kind of day. All I've got going on is the same ol' same ol'. I got this from Jeopardy Girl a while back...

1. Who was your first Prom Date?
The Tomato. He hardly ever danced with me because he was too busy doing the entire Vogue video dance routine in the center of a large, cheering crowd.

2. Who was your first roommate(s)? Tracy- a high school friend who was at UCSC when I transferred. We never turned our heat on for an entire year (that would be the year of the never-ending rain, the year of freezing temperatures). Well, except for that time when her Florida grandparents came to visit in December and refused to wear more than shorts and polo shirts. They promised to pay our heating bill so they didn't have to wear a sweater. And guess what? They left the fucking heater on for 5 days while NO ONE was there over Christmas break. Brilliant.

3. What alcoholic beverage did you drink the first time you got drunk? I can barely type it let alone ever drink it again . . . Screwdriver. Ugh! (Warning: Do NOT eat Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice Cream and then consume large amounts of orange juice & vodka. Puke.)

4. What was your first job? Technically it was at the Parrish office at our church. I answered phones and filed stuff. It was very dull. I read a lot and always got nervous when the priests came around. (Sinner!) I worked at Baskin Robbins for a couple of years in high school. Sweet job! That's where Tomato and I met (and fell in love, awww).

5. What was your first car? 1966 Red Mustang. Thanks Mom!

6. When did you go to your first funeral? I am sure I went to funerals as a kid but the one I most remember was my father's at age 19.

7. How old were you when you first moved away from your hometown? I was 21 when I moved from Campbell to Santa Cruz.

8. Who was your first grade teacher? Um. . .I am so scarred from 2nd grade, I have apparently blocked it out. (I should have NEVER got my name on the board Ms. G. Damn you and your mushroom shoes.)

9. Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane? (I am guessing) Disneyland.

10. When you snuck out of your house for the first time who was it with? I never snuck out of my own house but I did sneak with some junior high friends during a sleep over. We went to toilet paper Mark P.'s house. While we were all climbing back in the window of her bedroom, her dad flipped on the light and caught us. Instead of getting in trouble, he bought us all Jack 'n the Box at one in the morning.

11. Who was your first Best Friend, and are you still Friends with them? My first best friend that I can remember is Michelle O. We occasionally reconnect but our lives are very different. I really wish she'd stop with the God forwards though. Y'all know how I feel about those!

12. Where did you live the first time you moved out of your parent's house? I lived in condoland in Santa Cruz with Tracy. (see #2)

13. Who is the first person you call if you have a bad day? Dokey or Hillz.

14. Whose wedding were you in the first time you were a bridesmaid/groomsman? I have only been a maid of honor at my sister's wedding.

15. What is the first thing you do in the morning? Pet my kitties and then read The Book of Awakening.

16. What is the first concert you ever went to? I am thinking it was Kool & The Gang at Great America. Celebrate good times- come on!

17. First Tattoo or Piercing? Mistakenly succumbed to peer pressure at the age of 19 and got a butterfly on my hip. I am glad it is behind me- literally and figuratively.

18. First celebrity crush? Ricky Schroeder was my heartthrob. Silver Spoons! (Just like Jeopardy Girl)

19. Age of first kiss? Like REAL kiss? Because Shawn S. totally kissed me under the mistletoe when I was 5 (I think). Mark P. at the age of 16 would be my first "official" saliva swap.

20. First Crush? Vince R. from St. Lucy's Elementary School. Then came Jake S. Looking back on it, Vince kinda looked like a cross between Yoda and Luke Skywalker. Um, eww.

21. First time you did drugs? I was 18. That's all I'm saying.

Love this one. It's so fun! I may have to steal it from you. Have a great weekend, and spoil that nephew rotten! (I may need tips on the best way to do that.)

Claire said...

Love #1. My prom date didn't have much time for dancing with me either, because he was outside brooding and being mysterious. ;)

Bre said...

My first prom date couldn't dance to save his life! He tried an awful lot... much to my pain!

Baskin Robbins is my favorite place to go in Seattle.

What secrets can you tell us about the ice cream?

Gary said...

Nice meme. Maybe you should celebrate it. How about a screwdriver? :)

Oooh maybe I will do this tomorrow when I am tired and hungover from poker party 2006. My first booze was Wild Turkey so don't feel so bad....and I looooved Rick Schroeder and Jason Bateman, even back then.....drugs, yeah me too.

Becky said...

I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your dad so young. I can't imagine dealing with that at 19.

Ricky Shroeder was also my first young crush, but then I shifted to Sean Astin after The Goonies.
