Meme of Firstnesses

Snagged this one from ladyoneill. I like it because (a) I haven't seen it before, (b) you have to think a bit to answer it, and (c) you actually learn something about the person from their responses. I mean, I couldn't care less that you prefer croutons to bacon bits but if your first kiss was your cousin Eddie, well, that tells me something about you. So here goes:

1. Who was your FIRST prom date? - Never went to a prom of any sort

2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love? - no, he invented Google Earth so he's way too important to talk to little old me

3. What was your FIRST alcoholic drink? - a banana daiquiri from my best friend's older brother, on whom I had the most comprehensive crush a 13-year-old can have. I was spending the night with her and he had a bunch of friends over to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail and they were drinking banana daiquiris. It was also my first experience with Monty Python. To this day the Black Knight makes me think of banana daiquiris.

4. What was your FIRST job? - if you don't count babysitting, then it was working at Long John Silver's where by today's standards I was sexually harassed by my boss, but by 1980s standards I got to smooch an older guy and felt really grownup ;)

5. What was your FIRST car? - a Reliant K car, when I went to college. I wanted the license plate NCC-1864 but someone already had it. My first introduction to the fact that adults don't get everything they want.

6. Who was the FIRST person to text you today? - whoever it was I probably won't get it until Friday since my phone is always dead and I never check my texts.

8. Who was your FIRST grade teacher, tell us about them? - wow...no idea. The principle was Mr. Buonfiglio, I remember that.

9. Where did you go on your FIRST air plane ride? - to Hawaii. Don't be impressed, I was only about six months old and don't remember a thing.

10. Who was your FIRST best friend & do you still talk? - the first one I remember was a girl named either Yvette or Denise. I'm sure that tell you that no, we aren't still in touch ;)

11. Where was your FIRST sleep over? - no idea, but the banana daiquiri/Monty Python/cute older brother one has stuck with me the longest!

12. is missing, so I'll make on up...Who was your first kiss? - a boy I didn't know, at the roller skating rink, when I was thirteen. He could skate backwards, which apparently really impressed me.

13. Whose wedding were you in the FIRST time? - my aunt's, I got to be a flower girl with a really dorky hat.

14. What was the FIRST thing you did this morning? - swore at the alarm clock, as per usual. Then I let the dog out, got dressed and went to acupuncture.

15. What was the FIRST concert you ever went to? - Van Halen!!!! David Lee Roth did obscene things with a beach ball. I was in heaven.

16. FIRST tattoo? - still to come someday, if they ever go out of fashion

17. FIRST piercing? - ears, at about 14 I think

18. FIRST foreign country you went to? - Oklahoma? OK, just kidding. England, summer after my freshman year of college.

19. FIRST movie you remember seeing? - STAR WARS!!! I remember waiting in loooong lines (there was much hype back in 1977) and peeking through the gap in the doors to see a giant explosion. I was soooooo excited!

20. When was your FIRST detention? - never had detention but I was sent to the principal (Mr Buonfiglio!! see #8) in first grade due to chasing boys and trying to kiss them

22. Who was your FIRST roommate? - I had two, both fashion conscious and curvy, which intimidated me no end ("You really don't know how to accessorize, do you?") but they turned out to be very nice and we roomed together for the rest of college. They were also my first introduction to the fact that you could be smart and still a Christian. Having gotten most of my exposure to Christians from Oral Roberts and televangelists, this was a revelation (pun intended).

23. If you had one wish, what would it be? - to be a best-selling author of sci-fi and fantast novels, or a vampire so I could live forever and see what happens in 500 years. Or both.

24. What is something you would learn if you had the chance? - Aramaic and Hebrew so I could read the Bible in its earliest versions

25. Did you marry the FIRST person to ask for your hand in marriage? - no, see #2 above, but it all worked out fine because Mr Psmith is wonderful :)

26. What was the first sport that you were involved in? - um...competitive quarters?

27. What were the first lessons you ever took? - piano, and I'm still glad mom made me do it

28. What is the first thing you do when you get home? - change clothes, get on the elliptical, and then have a glass of wine (I'm not an alcoholic; alcoholics go to meetings)
