Some Fun with a First Meme

one is the loneliest number by horizontal.integration on FlickrI saw this fun “first” meme over at the Facebook page of Anna l’Americana of  Only in Maine.

I promised to steal it, so here it is.

Feel free to fill out your own and post it wherever you like, even in the comments here…if you’d just like to pick out your favorite firsts from the list and share, please do!

1. Who was your FIRST prom date?
My first and only prom date was named Brian, and he recently threatened to post photos on Facebook. Despite that, I still think he’s one of the nicest guys I’ve ever known.

2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love?
Occasionally.

3. What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?
Probably peach schnapps with my mom on some New Year’s Eve during my teens.

4. What was your FIRST job?
Waitress at a drive-in (no roller skates or movies involved). Best skill learned: how to make the swirly tops on a soft ice cream cone.

5. What was your FIRST car?
Never had one as I don’t drive, but if I get one, I’ll let you know.

6. Who was the FIRST person to text you today?
No texts. Hardly ever any texts. I rather hate texts.

7. Who is the FIRST person you thought of this morning?
Not a person, but a kid. Pasqualina.

8. Who was your FIRST grade teacher?
Mrs. Casari. Loved her, and loved going back to see her when my nephew was starting school.

9. Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?
Raleigh-Durham, NC from Harrisburg, PA on my 18th birthday (back to Duke after Fall Break).

10. Who was your FIRST best friend & do you still talk?
A fun gal named Heather, and sadly, we haven’t been in touch for about 10 years.

11. Where was your FIRST sleep over?
Heather’s. Her house had mirrors that covered most of the living room walls so we always played Bloody Mary and scared the bejeebers out of ourselves. Fun times!

12. Who was the FIRST person you talked to today?
P, but it was quite limited. He’s not a morning person.

13. Whose wedding were you in the FIRST time?
My cousin Debbie’s as a flower girl/junior bridesmaid. I remember big glasses and a big hat. No, you will not be seeing photographic evidence.

14. What was the FIRST thing you did this morning?
Put on my sheepskin boots!

15. What was the FIRST concert you ever went to?
Aw geez, probably something at the Bloomsburg Fair.

16. FIRST tattoo?
I’ll keep you posted.

17. FIRST piercing?
My ears when I was probably 12 or 13 years old. Piercing Pagoda baby!

18. FIRST foreign country you visited?
Italia.

19. FIRST movie you remember seeing?
ET, twice with my feet sticking to the floors of the old Victoria Theatre (no longer there) in Shamokin, PA.

20. When was your FIRST detention?
Boh.

21. What was the FIRST state you lived in?
Pennsylvania—the second state of the union, incidentally.

22. Who was your FIRST roommate?
Kristin at Duke, and yes, we’re still in touch.

23. If you had one wish. What would it be?
That I’d have the power to teleport myself here, there, everywhere. P.S. I don’t know what these last three have to do with firsts, but I’ll still play.

24. What is something you would learn if you had the chance?
To play the guitar.

25. Who do you think will be the next person to post this?
You! Consider that a dare.

    Oh to be so young that you can remember answers to those 25 questions.

    I do remember the 1st time I had a purple pickled egg was at the salad bar of the Bloomsburg Motor Inn circa 1975-1976. Stopping there to eat was just shear luck but it was a great beginning to our vacation.

    Hah, now *that* is a moment to remember! Mmmmm 🙂

  2. 03.10.2009

    Oooh, can I steal it too! I was doing another meme for my first blogiversary but this would be perfect, even if I would have to rewrite my post. Decisions, decisions… Anyway, will keep you posted 🙂

    milanese masala’s last blog post..Eating guitar strings

    Ooh fun…happy blogiversary 🙂

    Honored again, Michelle, just plain honored. Folks, Michelle is such a good friend, loyal reader and all-around generous person that she linked back to my blog AGAIN. Even though sometimes I make her comment twice, there.

    First blogger to link back to Only in Maine? Michelle at Bleeding Espresso!

    BTW: A few days ago I got searched using “chicken bleeding” – which resulted in my Chicken Bleeding Espresso recipe, and, I’m thinking, not quite what that particular googler had in mind! I’ll be laughing for quite a while over that one. What are your funniest searches, Michelle? (One good turn deserves a topic…)

    anna l’americana’s last blog post..Dinner for 4: Chicken 2345….

    Hah! I did some posts like that a while back, but I have to do one again…a search that keeps coming up constantly is “smoking basil.” Too funny 🙂

  4. 03.10.2009

    I may have to play along on this one too, as I keep seeing it on FB.

    Why don’t you drive my dear? And if you are ever in Utah I will teach you some basics on the guitar. 🙂

    Aimee’s last blog post..Where is spring??

    I just never got my license. I turned 16 after all my friends and then went off to college soon thereafter…then lived in a city…then came here. And thanks for the guitar lessons offer 🙂
