Memory lane

I admit it, I stole this from another blog. But I thought it might be interesting, so... I'm also going to challenge my thousands of readers to answer the same questions and share them with the internet ;) Here goes:

YOUR SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL

[What year was it?]
1987-1988

[What were your three favorite bands?]
Wham!, Berlin, Adam Ant

[What was your favorite outfit?]
jeans, a button-down shirt tucked in, a belt (HA), flats in the same color as my shirt

[What was up with your hair?]
really long and curly with poofy 80s bangs

[Who were your best friends?]
Ann, Christine, Chris

[What did you do after school?]
either talk on the phone for hours to Ann or Chris, or hang out with one of them

[Did you take the bus?]
Luckily, I was never a bus kid. My senior year I drove a '63 VW bug in a bright, kelly green color. No AC, no shoulder seat belts... the perfect car for a new driver ;)

[Who did you have a crush on?]
Barry J., hunky football player

[Did you fight with your parents?]
Oh yes.

[Who did you have a CELEBRITY crush on?]
Adam Ant. John Cusack (Better off Dead)

[Did you smoke cigarettes?]
Nope. Although I faked it once, as a freshman, to make a boy think I was cool. p.s. -- it didn't work. (although there is karmic justice -- about 10 years after HS my sister and I were at the local Jim's near my parent's house and this very same boy was now our overweight waiter)

[Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?]
No, I carried a small stack of books w/me and looked forward to going to my locker because there might be a note in there from my best friend or boyfriend.

[Did you have a 'clique'?]
I don't think so. I hung around with my boyfriend and his friends, mainly.

[Did you have "The Max" like Zach, Kelly, and Slater?]
Um. I don't think so. (I know this is a 90210 reference, but who is "The Max"???)

[Admit it, were you popular?]
No. Although in retrospect, I think people knew who I was, but I was always associated w/Chris and was considered "shy and quiet." HA.

[Who did you want to be just like?]
Molly Ringwald or Tanya B. (who, incidentally, dated Barry, my secret crush).

[What did you want to be when you grew up?]
I suppose I thought I'd be a wife and mother.

[Where did you think you'd be at the age you are now?]
Married, living in a nice house in the burbs with a handsome husband and beautiful children, driving an Iroq (sp) Camero.

You're it!

YOUR SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL

[What year was it?]
1987-1988

[What were your three favorite bands?]
Def Leppard, Yaz, Erasure

[What was your favorite outfit?]
hot pink sleeveless top and matching mini-skirt that kind of flared out, very Madonna-esque, with flats of course, permed hair (yikes) and yes, probably a bow!

[What was up with your hair?]
spiral permed...all the girls on the basketball team had the same hair because we had sports 1st period at school--wash and go!

[Who were your best friends?]
Kristi, Meredith, Nancy, & Brian

[What did you do after school?]
Depended on the season--played basketball, volleyball, or ran track or cross-country.

[Did you take the bus?]
Nope. By then I drove, even though I was the LAST in my class to be old enough to drive. A little brownish gold colored Dodge Ram pick-up--it was cute!

[Who did you have a crush on?]
I had a steady boyfriend, who was one of the best football players on our team. Short and bulky muscled guy with blonde hair and cute dimples. Very All-American jock-ish...

[Did you fight with your parents?]
Yep. Mainly my Mom. But, not as awfully as my sister did.

[Who did you have a CELEBRITY crush on?]
Ditto on John Cusack (Better off Dead is my favorite 80s comedy); I loved Patrick Swayze back then too.

[Did you smoke cigarettes?]
No. I have never wanted to--even to be cool. My parents smoke and I think it is SO gross.

[Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?]
No, but whoever assigned lockers that year got a laugh by putting me on the bottom locker and a dwarf girl in my class on the top. I carried several classes of books with me to avoid having to reach under her and have all her freaky locker stuff fall on me. (She was QUITE strange and a little scary.)

[Did you have a 'clique'?]
I crossed cliques often. I was a jathletic, and friends with that popular crowd, but also some of my best friends were in band and that was who I hung out with the most. I got to be friends with a lot of Juniors because I dated a guy a year younger and some of my childhood friends were in that class.

[Did you have "The Max" like Zach, Kelly, and Slater?]
Dude--this isn't 90210--it's Saved By the Bell! And, no, my town only had a Dairy Queen for goodness sake, no trendy hang outs. Well, they did try a teen club for a short while, but it closed.

[Admit it, were you popular?]
Not popular, not unpopular. I got voted a couple of neat honors my senior year, but I was never nominated for most popular, beautiful or friendliest by my class.

[Who did you want to be just like?]
Laurie B in my class, who was a 4-year state medalist in track, and good at every sport she tried. She was cute and popular and also very smart. She went to Westpoint. And, unbelievably, she was also a nice human being.

[What did you want to be when you grew up?]
Back then I think I was knowing it would be something with writing, but I also thought about being a lawyer. Never thought about kids and marriage--I just wanted to go live my life away from my small town!

[Where did you think you'd be at the age you are now?]

I didn't think that far ahead. I just wanted to be "in my twenties" in a cool apartment with a friend and having fun!
