I shoulda been a beauty school dropout...

1. Did you date someone from your school? If by 'date,' you mean hold hands with a boy once in awhile when our friends weren't watching, then yes. I dated a boy named Ben--the first of many Bens in my dating experiences, apparently. I'd like that year and a half back, please!

2. What kind of car did you drive? It really couldn't be considered a 'car,' but I drove the big, blue Suburban my junior and senior years. We sure crammed a lot of people in that thing sometimes.

3. What was the most embarrassing moment of HS? Too. Many. To. Count. Ummm...a little help? I really think I've repressed these memories. The closest I can come to remembering something truly catastrophic was from the 9th grade: I slipped in the mud playing flag football in gym class--in front of the guy I liked a lot. Sounds pretty harmless now, but it was kind of devastating. **I came back to this one! The cafeteria question reminded time one of my friends wrote a story in reference to Ben (see question #1) and me. It was kind of cheesy and sappy. The guys really wanted to read it, so they stole it. I stood up in the cafeteria and shouted as Ben Heiner (it was him, correct?) ran away. All of the din stopped abruptly as everyone turned to stare. Eeek.

4. Were you a party animal? On weekends, I could be found making renditions of "To Kill A Mockingbird" or playing rounds of Catch Phrase for hours on end in Lisa's basement. Thinking about it now, I can't really come up with anything better we could have done with our time.

5. Were you considered a flirt? I would have liked to have been, but I was not good at communication with the opposite sex. Hmm...times haven't changed that much, it seems!

6. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir? Looks like everyone else was in choir, so I would like to proudly state that I was in band. Ok, remove 'proudly' from that last sentence. I did marching band and Wind Ensemble--the works. Yep, I stuck with it my entire high school career. And I haven't touched my clarinet since.

7. Were you a nerd? Have you been reading this post at all?!

8. Were you on any varsity teams? Marching band was popular at my school, but the school district vetoed adding 'varsity' to its title. ;)

9. Did you get suspended/expelled? For what? Being too loud in the cafeteria? Nope, they let me attend every last day.

10. Can you still sing the fight song? I had this thing pounded into my head in band, so it's a stubborn bugger there in my brain.

11. Who were your favorite teachers? Ms. Coburn, Mr. Shaw, Ms. Barney, Ms. Hyer

12. Where did you sit during lunch? Yes, I was a participator in the loud table fiasco that occurred daily.

13. School mascot? Dart. And what the crap is a dart?!

14. Did you go to homecoming, and with whom? Once. Ben.

15. If you could go back and do it again, would you? If time travel were possible, why would I want to waste it reliving the worst years of life?

16. What do you remember most about graduation? Those gold gowns. And driving home at 6 in the morning dead tired.

17. Where did you go senior skip day? No one told me about this. Awh man, I missed it!

18. Were you in any clubs? National Honor Society (pretty much on paper only), Creative Writing Club, ummm...can't think of anything else.

19. Have you gained some weight since then? Actually I've lost about 20 lb. since high school. Sorry Bree...I must have given it to you... :(

20. Who was your prom date? Ugh...I didn't go my first two years of high school, and then my senior year, I was set up on a disastrous blind date. Let's just say that one of the girls in our group ended up finding out that one of the guys we had all been set up with had blown up her mailbox the year previous. Ouch.

21. Are you planning on going to your 10 year reunion? Only two things will get me to go: 1) If I've discovered a new element and I want to shove it in all those losers' faces; 2) If I marry a hot celebrity and I want to show him off.

22. Looking back, what advice would you give yourself? Dress better. Don't worry about being so obsessively on time for everything. Teachers can't do THAT much to hurt you...really.

Annie, you are too cute! We have to meet for reals soon. I'll just invite myself to Lacy's house and you can come over, or something.
I really liked your answer for the "are you looking forward to your high school reunion" question. If you marry a celebrity, please invite me to your wedding.

Annie - your answer to number 19 is gold! I was rolling.

Bree - You don't know me, and no offense, but Annie's answer is gold. Sorry...but you know you have to laugh.
