This is one is KINDA cool on account of the comparison betwixt the you's of old and new. But then again, those same questions keep coming up. Oh well…
15 years ago…
How old were you? 12
What grade were you in? Grade 7
Where did you go to school? The Millwood School. A VERY small private school. There were only 6 people in my class. It was a horrible place.
Where did you work? I think I MIGHT have babysat once at that point in my life.
Where did you live? Midlothian, VA.
Where did you hang out? My only friend at school, Sharon Schofield, and my neighbor, Dawn Weber. Sharon was a borderline hardcore Christian. She took me to a concert by a religious rock singer called Carmen, who was kind of like the Christian Neil Diamond. It was an eye-opening experience, to say the least. Dawn was a super cool girl who had ripped jeans like Debbie Gibson and listened to They Might Be Giants. I wonder where she is now.
How was your hair style? I do believe that was the year I tried to get poofy bangs like all the cool girls. Anyone who knows how impossibly straight my hair is can imagine how badly that turned out.
Did you wear braces? Nope. That’s the ONE genetic blessing I have. Problem-less teeth.
Did you wear glasses? No. My eyes didn’t start to go till adulthood.
Who was your boyfriend/girlfriend? Well, I WANTED it to be either Fred Savage or Bart Simpson. But instead it was my hand.
Who was your celebrity crush? Fred Savage and Bart Simpson.
Who was your regular-person crush? For a while I had a crush on a boy named Lyle. Being that our school was so small, my options were pretty limited. But Lyle, it turns out, was a total A-hole and he, like everybody else, only wanted to go out with Nikki, the beautiful blonde girl who’s mother was called “Bunny”.
Were you a virgin? And then some.
How many piercings did you have, not including ears? Not a one.
How many tattoos did you have? Zilch. I didn’t try to make my own tattoo until I was 14.
What was your favorite band? Def Leppard. How I wasn’t considered cool at my school, I have NO idea.
What was your biggest fear? The other kids finding out about how crazy my mother was.
Had you smoked a cigarette yet? No
Had you gotten drunk or high yet? My mom used to give me and my brother hot chocolate and Schnapps at Christmas time, but not enough to get me drunk.
Had you driven yet? I’d barely learned to ride a bike.
Which of your pets were still alive? My cats; Cinderella, Katie and Curry.
NOW IT'S FALL 2005
How old are you? 27
What grade are you in? The grade of life
Where do you go to school? The school of knard hocks.
Where do you work? Poopypants Capital Management
Where do you live? Seattle, WA
Where do you hang out? MOSTLY: The Canterbury, Wok and Grill, Faye's apartment, my apartment. Occassionally: Shorty's, The Dragonfish, The Nite Lite. I'm willing to try anywhere once, though.
How is your hair style? Long and straight as can be with bangs.
