panacea juggle

Happy Good Friday. I will commemorate Jesus’ death in a way that I believe he would appreciate: by doing a meme that appears to be predominantly about the secret debauchery of my youth. This meme actually has some interesting questions. And by interesting, I mean, they haven’t been asked 1000 times before in a meme. Anywhosel…


1. Who was your first kiss and when?
My first kiss was during a game of spin the bottle. I kissed a guy named Daniel. Neither of us was too pleased about it. A few days later, a guy I DID like, named Robert, kissed me on his own volition. I would like to count that as my first kiss, if I may. Oh, and I was 13.

2. Who was your first prom date?
I find it funny that this meme assumes most people had multiple prom dates. I didn’t get asked to prom and the only person I would have gone with didn’t like me “in that way”. It wasn’t too big of a deal though (despite the general heartbreak of that crush). I spent the evening at a punk rock show and had a much better time than I would have had with a room full of people I didn’t like.

3. Who was your first roommate?
I roomed with THREE other girls my freshman year in college. A bio major, an aspiring aerobics instructor, and a funny girl named Jessica who had a drawer full of dildos.

4. What alcoholic beverage did you drink when you got drunk the first time?
Red wine. So goth.

5. Who was your first sexual partner?
My first boyfriend. He was a high school dropout and kind of a trouble maker. I really did live the movie cliché high school existence.

6. What was your first job?
Apart from babysitting, I had a summer job as a day camp counselor.

7. What was your first car?
1982 blue Volvo Station Wagon.

8. When did you go to your first funeral?
Some kids in my neighborhood died in a car accident when I was in middle school.

9. How old were you when you first moved away from your hometown?
I was 17 when I went off to college.

10. Who was your first grade teacher?
Some lady. Actually, several ladies. I think I switched schools that year.

11. Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane?
Moved to Oregon from Richardson, Texas (g-g-g-ghosts!) when I was 2.

12. Where did you go for your first date and who was it with?
I went to a high school play with my first boyfriend, after which we hung out in the parking lot with his friends. Super romantic.

13. When you snuck out of your house for the first time, who was it with?
My first boyfriend. That was clearly the height of my teenage rebellion.

14. Who was your first Best Friend in elementary and are you still friends with them?
I moved around quite a bit back then so I had a few best friends during that time. I think the first one was a German kid named Joe who I liked because he had ALL the Leggos. I’m not still friends with most of them, but I did reconnect with one of them in Seattle last year. Weird, considering we met in Huntsville, AL.

15. Who was the first person to send you flowers, or who was the first person that you sent flowers to?
Sent me flowers: I’m pretty sure it was my dad in middle school who sent me flowers to make me feel better about not being popular. He signed them “A secret admirer”. I think it might have actually made me feel worse knowing they were from my dad.
Sent flowers to: Probably a sympathy bouquet to a friend.

16. Where did you live the first time you moved out of your parents house?
The lovely Anderson/Langdon dorms.

17. Who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
Whoever I think would be sympathetic to that particular plight.

18. Who's wedding were you in the first time you were a bridesmaid/groomsmen?
My friend Kristie’s.

19. What is the first thing you do in the morning?
Look at the clock and groan. Seriously. Every morning I do that unwittingly.

20. What was the first concert you ever went to?
Cool Answer: Anthrax/White Zombie/Quicksand
Uncool Answer: New Kids on the Block/Tiffany

21. What was your first major surgery?
Knee Surgery.

22. First tattoo or piercing?
I reluctantly got my ears pierced when I was 10. They’re pretty much all closed up now.

23. First celebrity sighting?
I saw Jeff Foxworthy in Richmond once. He was sitting in traffic.

24. First celebrity crush?
Han Solo.
