it's here! and memememe!!
Meet my Lendrum DT...unnamed, unused - this is it for now. I will just gaze at her in wonder. I'll share something when (and if) I have something to share:)
Meanwhile I was over at two knits of ivory , Morticcia had this little memory lane meme...I couldn't help it.
Who was your first prom date?
Travis, a wonderful friend - he wanted to be more than friends, but shucks - he was so darn nice - we had the most fun being silly. I occasionally see him, and it just makes my day.
Do you still talk to your first love?
nope - however, I do run into his sister occasionally who is compelled to fill me on on what's going on with him and his family - I think she tells him what I am up to also - so vicariously, maybe.
What was your first alcoholic drink? I'm going to guess Sun Country Wine Cooler out of the 2-liter bottle - am I dating myself? hee hee
What was your first job for pay?
Frosty's Frozen Custard - it was such good fun. The boss's son now owns the place and we share giggles occasionally - he remembers when I dumped a full mop bucket over at closing time - it comes up everytime I see him, ineveitably. I called him some expletives because he laughed at me in 1987!
What was your first car?
1982 Buick Skylark - two toned, dark blue on the bottom, ecru on the top - the tires squealed like a mo fo - that's what I would have said at 18. I got a humongous speeing ticket in it, I'd had my license 2 weeks. The District Attorney gave me a break (as much as he could, seriously, 36 miles over - eep - the speedometer really didn't work, but come on...) - I now work with that DA pretty regularly as part of my job - weird.
Who was the first person to text you today?
My sister - she is the Queen of the texts in the family - she's just a girl compared to me:)
Who is the first person you thought of this morning?
My grandma - who is doing awesome post-surgery. Thank you so much for your prayers and kind words!
Who was your first grade teacher?
Mrs. Strom in Fort Atkinson, WI - she let me bring the Kiss Destroyer album cover for show and tell - that's a coool lady.
Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane?
Florida, on my honeymoon.
Who was your first best friend and are you still friends?
Tammi - we met the first day of kindergarten. I wouldn't call us "friends" anymore - we exchange holiday cards now.
What was your first sport played?Softball my freshman year - I stayed with it until I was a senior - I was not Varsity material - I thought it was a "game" and didn't get all sad when we lost - didn't jive with the rest of the gals...
Who was the first person you talked to this morning?
Whose wedding were you first in?
Tammi's - maybe we were closer 14 years ago, huh?:) But I did always wonder why I was in it.
What was the first thing you did this morning?
Woke up thankful my grandma is doing well.
What was the first concert you went to?
AC/DC Blow up Your Video in 1988 with my friend (and prom date) Travis - at the Coliseum in MAdison, WI - omg, it rocked! The guy next to me got busted for pot in the parking lot - I was such a good girl, he scared me. Now I supervise people like him - poetic, huh? And seriously, I have learned pot isn't the worst crime in the world, unfortunately.
What was your first tattoo or piercing?
I got my ears pierced in 6th grade.
What was your first run in with the law?
I hid under a manure spreader at a party that was raided when I was in 10th grade - mind you, I hadn't drank a drop - but aforesaid first boyfriend had - so we hid for an hour. By the way - I was the ONLY kid at the party who got grounded - My mom had to pick me and dragged me by the hood to the cops to find out what was going on - I was grounded for "not calling when the alcohol came out". Hence why I was such a good kid - I had no choice!:) (okay, okay, I made some bad choices now and then...)
Who was your first roommate?
Other than my sister - My first unknown roommate in college bailed before we got started - not sure what happened, so a highschool peer who was looking to get out of the house, and happened to be going to UW-Whitewater moved in. BIGGEST mistake - she was awful - her boyfriend stayed all the time and got mad when I would be up typing homework - hello, my room too!
Where did you go in your first limo ride?
From church to my wedding reception:)
With that - I wish you all good night! Thank you again for your kind words about my grandma - Everything went so well - she is a champ! I knit so much in the hospital, it is the first time I went to bed with a sore wrist. I am 1/2 into a sleeve in my February Ladies Sweater - and think the damn thing is going to be too small - so here's to some serious blocking...my mom is littler than me, and said "oh, my favorite color" - maybe her wish will come true - doh!:0
