High School Remembrances

A bit has happened in the last couple days, but I just haven't had the energy to blog about it. (Nothing bad at all, I promise!!). We finally have our AC back though.

So, in the interesting of keeping up the posting habit, I'm copying out dcrmom's meme on high school. Cause this one looks like a bit of fun!!

High School Spirit Meme

1. Who was your best friend? Marian (hmmm.... might be a good thing she doesn't know about this blog yet, cause I think that's the third time I've linked to her this week!)

2. Did you play any sports? I was on the bowling team. And I was really good.

3. What kind of car did you drive? Mom's Oldsmobile, when she let me borrow it. I didn't get a car of my own till after my second year of college.

4. It’s Friday night. Where were you? At home, watching bad tv. Sometimes it was 'scary' bad tv. Occasionally I was on the phone as I watched scary bad tv.

13. Did you go to the Prom? Actually I did. I decided on the Wednesday before prom that I wanted to go, and got a date (friend from work), a dress (a pretty purple number), a hair appointment (updo w/ curls of course!), and transportation in time for the big event.

14. If you could go back, would you? No.

15. What do you remember most about graduation? Hmmm.... It was warm and we were on the football field in super thick green robes. Oh, and all of us were holding a marble to give to the principal as we shook his hand. (Last person had a jar)

16. Where were you on Senior Skip Day? Sigh. At school. My parents wouldn't let me go, and I had a history test that day.

17. Did you have a job your senior year? Yes, I worked at Kenny Rogers' Roasters. I quasi-affectionately refer to it as the 'chicken joint.'

18. Where did you go most often for lunch? Back field (we were allowed to eat outside! promise!)

20. What did you do after graduation? Can't remember!!

21. What year did you graduate? 1996

22. Who was your Senior Prom Date? A friend from the aforementioned chicken joint. He was a year younger than me & bent on joining the Marines when he graduated. I kept in touch with him my freshman year of college, but haven't seen or heard from him since.

23. Are you going/did you go to your 10 year reunion? I did. Can't say it was much fun though. Went to Husband's the following weekend; his was more fun, but that's cause he knew everybody in high school. (he was one of THOSE guys :) )

If you'd like to play, consider yourself tagged.
