20 questions

as if i haven't already been inspired to write about five posts this morning (just as well- it's going to be a busy week, and i can space them out), i found this little questionnaire my sibling filled out over on myspace, and i'm totally posting it here and tagging people. (insert evil laugh here)

since she referred to me in a couple of her answers, i'm leaving them in red, and mine will be in white. (and since i'm so busy changing font colors, i'm going to be lazy and not decapitalize the questions......after all, it's the weekend, and it's really early.)

1. Who was your first prom date?
My sister's going to hate reading this, but I went to prom when I was a Freshman and she was a Senior. What's worse is I went with a guy who she was friends with. I did look damn good in a little black dress... and I never wear dresses!
no one asked, and i wound up going to mama's that weekend while my sibling danced the night away until several hours past my curfew.

2. Who was your first roommate?
i think her name was jenny. she was a redhead, and our first week of college she was, uh, making her transition into college life.....not that she remembers any of it, i'm sure. needless to say, that didn't last long.

3. What alcoholic beverage did you drink when you got drunk the first time?
Beer straight from the keg at a New Years party my sister took me to. What was weird was the lesbians kept hitting on her while the guys were hitting on me. We should have tried to swap that out.
3a. they were more than hitting on her. as i recall, she wound up kissing two or three of them, while i was literally running from a pair of underage lesbians. (i mean, i'm flattered, but i like boys......a phrase i still have to utter on occassion these days. i suppose my sibling and i throw off people's gaydars or something.)
3b. not quite was probably either beer or wild turkey.*

4. What was your first job?
non-paying: volunteer at a summer camp
paying: athletic attic.....many fond memories of that place....and many coworkers i'd like to reestablish contact with

5. What was your first car?
1989 plymouth sundance. it was the family car, but i wound up with it (unofficially) my third year of college, and it was officially mine upon graduation. you have no idea how hard it was for me to give it up a year and a half was still running just fine at 213,000 miles. *sighs*

6. When did you go to your first funeral?
do hamster funerals count? how about the great flushing of goldfish? no? uhm.....i think it was my grandpa stanco, who died two days after my fifteenth birthday.

7. How old were you when you first moved away from your hometown?
i have a harder time with this one than my sibling. i mean, what do you cosider your "hometown"? the first place you lived? the place you lived the longest? we left cheyenne when i was something like a year old, denver when i was nearly 4, baltimore a week before i turned 14, and i left kansas city 8 years (almost to the day) after that.

8. Who was your first grade teacher?
Mrs. Jackson (psst- her last name was jordan, kiddo)
mrs. harris. she had a poster of the jacksons (from the victory tour, which i was reminded of the other day, as i wound up singing along to "state of shock" on my way to work) on her wall, which was cool, but otherwise, we didn't get along at all.

9. Where did you go on your first airplane ride?
wyoming....not sure how old i was, but daddy and i went out to visit my aunt while she went through a divorce

10. When you snuck out of your house for the first time, who was with you?
the first and only time.....i was with jenny gilbert, and we totally got caught

11. Who was your first Best Friend and are you still friends always?
my first? a couple come to mind....i still write to chrissy, but i have no idea what happened to brett canfield, who was easily my first big crush, as well.**

12. Where did you live the first time you moved out of your parents house?
c419 hudson hall on the northwest missouri state university campus. i was crushed when i found out they'd torn my dorm down last year.

13. Who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
it's generally a tossup between SO and mama

14. Who's wedding were you in the first time you were a bridesmaid or a groomsmen?
you know, i'd say i was still waiting on that one, but, quite frankly, i'm pretty okay with not having to don a fuschia dress with green lace that i'll surely never wear again.

15. What is the first thing you do in the morning?
roll over and blindly hit the nightstand until i manage to smack the snooze button

16. What was the first concert you ever went to?
A concert with Toad the Wet Sprocket and The Cranberries with my sister. She was there for Toad, I was there for the Cranberries, so we both suffered.
16a. can i possibly get across how much i hate the cranberries? i mean really, you have no idea how much i suffered to hear toad. it was totally worth it, though.
16b. my first concert was ugly kid joe at woody's nightclub in kansas city when i was 14 or 15. i'm sure i still have the ticket stub somewhere.

17. First tattoo or first piercing?
A crab I got about 7 years ago.
tattoo: a crab i got in june of 2000
piercing: seven in my ears starting as soon as i got to college. 1 other when i went to mardi gras my second year of college.

18. First celebrity crush?
let me think about this- i know it was before i discovered val kilmer. i can get it down to about five possibilities....

19. First crush?

20. First love?
not so fast- he reads this, and i don't think he realizes he holds this title.....and far be it from me to give im a huge ego.

*yeah- about that.....daddy, i should probably warn you that there's a seriously watered down bottle sitting in your liquor cabinet.
**no, wait- my first big crush was jamie galford, who lived two doors down and was a couple of years older than clue what happened to him, either.

oh- i was going to tag some folks, wasn't i? how about mossy, kal, joefish, bricotrout, and raven?


Kal said...

Cool. Will jump to it!

Labbie said...

Stop. You had me at your sister kissing lesbians...

Mossy Stone said...

*sniff* ltlme came back on myspace and this is how we find out?


Joefish said...

I'm really not into the whole tag thing. I'm going to respectfully decline.

locomocos said...

i went to ugly kid joe with you!
i remember touching his knee and though about how cool it was that we were in the front row!

and i still talk to Jenny Gilbert off and on!
