Stolen from jayesel. I am shocked I haven’t succumbed to a meme yet, but I haaaave had more than one crappy cop-out post.
Keith comes home today from being gone from his 5 day trip. A few times before living together, due to my stupid work schedule we wouldn’t get to see each other for almost a week, but this will be the longest (and only second time) he’s been gone since we’ve lived together. And it SUCKS. The first day I can swing, the second day I’m okay, but going on the third day it just sucks. It’s boring and lonely and I hate cooking for just me. So uh the whole point was to say I don’t want to waste any time I can spend with him blogging, so here ya go.
My brother’s 2nd birthday party. We’re a little over a year apart so I would have been 3 and change. I remember he had a tractor trailer birthday cake that my mom made with oreos for wheels.
First celebrity obsession crush
Jonathan Brandis. Thank you, seaQuest DSV. After that it was Devon Sawa, for MANY MANY years.
Katie! Someone found her on the side of the road and gave her to us. She later moved to my gram’s house and she lived a long, lovely 16 years.
First memory of being jealous
Some girl in elementary school got a Troll doll house/hair salon and I cried about it for weeks until I finally got it for Christmas, holla!
First time eating a cherry tomato
Probably not til middle school-ish. I like tomatoes on things, just not by themselves.
Casey. He wanted a girlfriend, I wanted a boyfriend, we didn’t even know each other. It lasted about 3 weeks, hahaha, just enough time to get to know one another.
Megan Williams house. It was a joint sleepover though because my sister was friends with her sister. Oh! It was New Years Eve and we had brought sparkling cider and her mom accidentally poured us the Champagne that was in the fridge instead! Ha! I forgot about that.
First time attending Sunday School
Never. I’m a heathen.
First roller coaster ride
I think the Jack Rabbit. I HATED roller coasters until I was 12-13.
First favorite brand name
Uh….not big on brand names, never really was. We got cheap clothes growing up.
First pair of Guess Jeans
First huge misunderstanding
Oh, this one is hard. Oh, I’ll pretend this counts. Once I was standing in line with my dad at Dairy Queen, I was probably 4-5. I was holding onto his leg and swinging around and when I went back to grab it, I grabbed some other guys leg and he and his kids (a bunch of teenage girls) all laughed and I was SO embarrassed.
First time being mistaken for a boy
My mom gave me a bowl cut when I was 9. I don’t know if a stranger ever thought I was a boy, but my sister, in an effort to make me feel better, told me I looked like Sam from Clarissa Explains it All. IT DIDN’T WORK.
First huge disappointment
Parents divorce, I guess.
First big family vacation
We would all pile in my pap’s van and go to Ocean City a few years in a row. I was young, so I don’t remember much, but what I remember was awesome.
Er, 9th grade? Dylan? Hahaha.
First stay in the hospital
I’ve never had to stay. KNOCK ON WOOD. I had lots of breathing problems when I was younger though and would have to go and get a treatment with that green mask. I can still smell it.
Yea, that never happened.
I worked at The Tiny Store. It’s a (tiny) grocery store in town. My boss was awesome and I got a raise after 3 weeks.
I actually found the pay stub while cleaning a while ago. It was an easy 250 and that was while making 5.15 an hour. We broke so many child labor laws.
Never got one of those. A few raises, but I’ve always worked dead-end jobs.
The Fortress in South Oakland. God was it ugly. But cheap.
First blog not on Myspace
I’ve been on livejournal since 1999. It’s dead now and I don’t want anyone reading those archives, so here I be. But I had a million temporary blogs while figuring out HTML.
That did not happen yet.
Also did not happen yet, but I’m hoping there will only be one of those.
