High School Spirit Meme

I have been reading a new blog this month, Musings of a House Wife.

One of the things that I have learned through her blog is that there is a whole vocabulary that comes from the blogging world. One of those words is Meme. As far as I can tell a Meme is a list of random facts about any topic that a blogger can fill out, post on their site and then others can use that same set of questions and post them too.

So here is my first go at a Meme!

High School Spirit Meme

1. Who was your best friend?
Tracy V.

2. Did you play any sports? No. I was a dancer. I studied ballet and jazz outside of school.

3. What kind of car did you drive? A used Toyota Celica convertible, with a ripped and leaky canvas top.It was literally held together by duct tape, but it was mine.

4. It’s Friday night. Where were you? Babysitting. From the time I got my drivers license, until the summer of '93 when I met The Mister (he was the only guy worth giving up my Friday night cash. I made good money!) I babysat every Friday night for Mrs. C. She had two girls, who are now in college (eek!) and we are still good friends

5. Were you a party animal? Not at all.

6. Were you considered a flirt? I don't think so.

7. Were you in the band, orchestra or choir? In High school I was in choir. (and Drama)

8. Were you a nerd? No. I was one of the artsy type (who dressed preppy).

9. Were you ever suspended or expelled? Are you kidding? My Dad would've killed me!

10. Can you sing the fight song? No.

11. Who was your favorite teacher? Hmmm....that is really hard. I loved several teachers. Mr Kramer actually made US History interesting. Ms. Bowland was the director of a theater group I was in and i adored her. Mr. Markle was a geometry teacher and if I hadn't had her for Math I probably wouldn't have graduated. And Dr. D. was the choir teacher and I was one of his favorites so that is always nice.

12. What was your school mascot? An Eagle.

13. Did you go to the Prom? Yes!

14. If you could go back, would you? No, I loved it but I wouldn't trade today for anything.

15. What do you remember most about graduation?
Being thankful I graduated! LOL! I was crying because it was a great year and I knew it was the end of a season. I knew that we would all part ways. My Best friend Tracy was a junior so I knew she would finish out her last year with out me and that things would be different. So it was bittersweet.

16. Where were you on Senior Skip Day? I don't remember. Probably at the school. I was in theater activities and I believe that all us "performance" people had to stay at school or we wouldn't be able to perform.

17. Did you have a job your senior year? Nope....I pretty much babysat for four families on a regular basis.

18. Where did you go most often for lunch? This is all based on my senior year, which was the year i switched from a small parochial school to a large public high school. In my senior year my friends and I would either eat at the school snack bar (did anybody else eat those awful taco burritos?) or we would go to Sonic.

19. Have you gained weight since then? No. I kind of chunked out in high school so I weigh less now.

20. What did you do after graduation? I went to a local college and lived at home.

21. What year did you graduate?1990

22. Who was your Senior Prom Date? My friend Bill was my date but at the time (and the reason I went to this high school for senior year) I was in The Shakespeare Touring Company which traveled around the city and state doing Shakespeare. So the kids in the Co. and I all went to prom as a group. We had a blast!

23. Are you going/did you go to your 10 year reunion? Yes, I went to my 10 year and it was over rated and over priced. I saw the people I wanted to see but for the twentieth I am going to find those people and get them together.

Any one else who wishes to play consider yourself tagged!

Okay I read and accepted the tag at www.frommytexaswindow.blogspot.com are my answers. I wonder if we would have been friends had we been in the same school. I was the lone poser in the group of friends that were the "smart kids". I hung out with them and was too laid back to realize I was the only one not in the Honor Society or getting straight A's :)

That is very cool to learn that stuff about you! I don't have a blog or else I would consider myself tagged. I am going to Lara's now to find out all about her previous life as a teenager.
