Friggin' List of Firsts

I stole this from Penny, and I feel no guilt. None, I say! Now, read my answers and contemplate every possible meaning of the phrase "Like a baby's arm".

1. Who was your first prom date?

My first prom date (junior prom) was Lindsey. She looked hot and we rode in my friend's Mustang. Lindsey is a huge Beatles freak, and while we were outside snogging we missed the John Lennon song Imagine, which happened to be the theme for that prom. She was not happy.

My senior prom date was a blind date. Yep, totally. She and I had never met before, until I went to her house to pick her up and let her parents take pictures of us. My friend hooked us up, but we never spent the time to get to know each other, before the dance. We were lame, but we still had fun in an arranged marriage, sort of way.

2. Who was your first roommate?
Well, in college I was in a fraternity (Tau Kappa Epsilon in case you were curious) my first semester, so I had a bunch of roomies. But my first, official college apartment roommates were Kathy and Emily. Yeah, that's right bitches...I lived with two girls. And yes, there was some hanky involved with one of them. Ka-ching!

3. What alcoholic beverage did you drink when you got drunk the first time?
Jack Daniels....out of little shot bottles, purchased from a gas station during my senior spring break. The next day was also my first hangover.

4. What was your first job?
When I was 14, I worked at a local movie theatre called The Glenwood. It was one of those movie theatres that had some class, and history. Back when people would get dressed up to go to the movies and watch propaganda ads about the war with the Nazis. It was a great first job, and I loved it.

5. What was your first car?
1986 Pontiac Sunbird, purchased for me by my grandparents. It was silver, and had all the 80's trimmings..including a pair of deer sensors on the hood. That's right, I had deer sensors. They are these little devices that emit a high-pitched sound that deer can hear from far they won't stand in the road as you drive by, and crash into you. My grandparents said it was for safety. My friends still make fun of me about it, to this day.

6. When did you go to your first funeral?
I don't remember how old I was...I think 9 or 10. It was my Aunt Bunny, whom I had never met before. I remember it was open-casket and I was too afraid to go up and see her, so I stayed in my seat and thought about death and probably Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

7. How old were you when you first moved away from your hometown?
I was 9 years old, when my mom moved us from my home of Mesquite, Texas to Kansas City, Missouri. That year was a bad year for winter in the midwest, and we got hit by a blizzard 3 months after we moved in. I had never even SEEN snow before, and seeing a blizzard pretty much freaked me the hell out.

8. Who was your first grade teacher?
I have no idea. But I can tell you the name of my 3rd grade teacher: Mrs. Kennedy. She used to give us jellybeans, when we got an answer correct. It was kind of Pavlovian in design, but seemed to work on us.

9. Where did you go on your first airplane ride?
Kansas City. It wasn't very exciting.

10. When you snuck out of your house for the first time, who was with you?
My buddy, Ray. We were young, and didn't do anything when we did sneak was just the fact that we were outside, when we weren't supposed to be. That made it fun. But in reality, it was pretty boring.

11. Who was your first Best Friend and are you still friends always?
My first Best Friend was Jason, in Texas. When I moved away we lost touch, and I have no idea what he's up to, or where he lives. I don't even remember his last name.

12. Where did you live the first time you moved out of your parents house?
Didn't we already cover this? I lived in a fraternity house on campus at college.

13. Who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
My girlfriend, and then my mistress. Just kidding!! I call my mistress first.

14. Who's wedding were you in the first time you were a bridesmaid or a groomsmen?
Dammit. I hate recalling bad memories...the first time I was a groomsmen, was for my father's marriage to his 3rd wife. I was too young to drink, so I had to suffer the fools sober. Don't get me started on this topic.

15. What is the first thing you do in the morning?
I Wake up. This question is a little lame.

16. What was the first concert you ever went to?
Aerosmith, 1996. We sat 3rd row, center. The seats were awesome, and the show kicked major ass. Yes, I didn't go to my first concert until I was 18....what of it?

17. First tattoo or first piercing?
My first piercing was my ears. My first tattoo was kanji on my right arm. Neither one of them directly contributed to me having sex.

18. First celebrity crush?
Alyssa Milano, from Who's the Boss. And she's still hot today, bitches. Oh, and I've seen her naked before, too. In movies. Aw yea.

19. First crush?
Wow, I can't belive I still remember this, but her name was Sky Purser and it was in 1st grade...she was a brunette and wicked cute. I think we shared crayons once, or something. Sky, if you're out there and you're reading this...I already have a mistress. It would never work between us.

20. First love?

Lame, lame question. I hate stuff like this. I'm not going to answer this..too many people I know read this blog. Instead, I'll just tell you that my first date was with a girl named Brooke and we'll leave it at that.

Junior prom still kicked ass, Shan. I got over it. :) We had fun in the 'Stang and After Prom rocked! Ahhhhh, memories....

Think Frustrated said...

I still love Alyssa Milano...

I am kind of a Beatles freak, too, and it's spelled, Beatles, not Beetles (I know this was purposeful, but why not be an asshole?)

Shanshu said...

Alyssa rocks. I used to watch Charmed for a short time, just to ensure my chance to stare at her, in different tight outfits.

I had to quit, when I realized I hated the show too much, to continue.

Oh, and I totally spelled Beatles wrong because I'm a complete wanker. I fixed it, though.


Chappy00 said...

Ahhh... memories.

Spinning Girl said...

I never trust people named Sky (or Skye, or Skie). Too volatile, unpredictable.

Also, I am sure you are well aware that Alyssa Milano was the model for Disney's Little Mermaid. Also, she wrote the hit song (later immortalized by Elton John), "Hold me closer, Tony Danza".

Jen said...

Um...HELLO! You completely lied for this whole post! Before me you dwelt in darkness so HOW could you have had any first experiences?

Shanshu said...

chappy: memories, indeed. Good times.

spinning girl: Um...I had NO idea that Alyssa wrote a song about Tony Danza. Tell me you're kidding?

jen: get off the pedastal, or I will knock you off. In the face.

Rowan said...

cool meme. Too bad I wouldn't have any answers for most of those though :(

bdiddy said...

Um..First time you were drunk? What about Dallas? Or was that just me and Hoover?

Crystal said...

great meme. totally stealing because i have nothing better to write!

Shanshu said...

rowan: thanks!

bdiddy: You sly chica, you! Didn't tell me you were on Blogger! Now we can chat on comments and stuff. I guess I'd better keep updating my blog, then.

Oh, and no I didn't get drunk in Dallas for NCA. That was all you.


crystal: Steal away! I stole it, first.

You were 18 in 1996?

Oh fuck me, I feel old.
