So I'm incredibly bored here at work and I realized it's been ages since I posted anything so I'm stealing this list from Facebook and posting it here. If it's not good enough for you then tough, it's all you get.
  1. Who was your FIRST prom date? BJ Harker. I wore these ridiculous shoes, they had HUGE heels… I would change that if I could.
  2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love? Not very often.
  3. What was your 1st alcoholic drink? Never tried it.
  4. What was your FIRST job? I worked the lunch counter at the Magrath Trading Company. I made burgers, shakes and a pie every week.
  5. What was your FIRST car? Red, 1980 something Honda Civic. It was a great car with a sun roof.
  6. Who was the FIRST person to text you today? Since we got married we've downgraded to one cell phone that Brad takes with him. As a result I no longer text and all the people who used to text me have quit.
  7. Who is the FIRST person you thought of this morning? Brad
  8. Who was your FIRST grade teacher? Does it make me a bad person if I can't remember? I'm sure I'd remember some other time but I'm drawing blank right now.
  9. Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane? Disneyland. My Dad won a trip for 4 to Disneyland so they paid for the other 3 kids and off we went. It was a nice change from the driving we normally did to get there.
  10. Who was your FIRST best friend & do you still talk? Maybe Alita Tanner? But maybe Michelle Todd. I think Alita and I were friends before Michelle Bevers and I were friends. Michelle Todd and I talk all the time, Alita and I not so much but my Mom gives me updates occasionally. I read Michelle Bevers' blog the few times she actually posts something :)
  11. Where was your FIRST sleep over? Either Michelle Bevers' or Alita Tanner's. I can't remember but I do remember that Michelle Bevers and I would play Barbies for hours and Alita and my sleepovers usually ended up with one of us wanting to go home because we got in a fight.
  12. Who was the FIRST person you talked to today? Brad. He was the unfortunate one to have to deal with my grouchiness in having to get up.
  13. Whose wedding were you in the FIRST time? My sister Jennifer's. We held lily's in our bouquet and they smelled like bologna.
  14. What was the FIRST thing you did this morning? Complain about having to get up. Then hit snooze many, many times.
  15. What was the FIRST concert you ever went to? Jann Arden. I think I even went alone and I loved it!
  16. FIRST tattoo? I almost got a tattoo once. I went down to the tattoo parlour, picked one out and went to make an appointment. They wanted a deposit and I didn't have cash so I said I'd go back later. Thank goodness I never did. I think I just wanted a brief moment of rebellion.
  17. First piercing? I had my ears pierced twice when I was young. The first time they got really infected so we let them grow over, then I got them pierced again.
  18. First foreign country you've been to? US hardly counts but it was the first, we went to Mexico a couple times when I was young.
  19. FIRST movie you remember seeing? Not a chance I can remember the first movie I saw, my memory doesn't hold those kind of details. I did love The Little Mermaid though and prided myself on the ridiculous amounts of times I'd seen it. I used to watch it twice a day. First theatre movie I remember seeing was probably Beauty & the Beast.
  20. When was your FIRST detention? The only detention I ever had was handed out to the whole class. I can't remember what we did wrong but it was in high school and we all thought it was ridiculous.
  21. What was the first state you lived in? I've never lived in the States and I've only ever lived in Alberta. I almost went to school down in Idaho, changed my mind at the last minute and I've grateful for it.
  22. Who was your FIRST roommate? Julie Regehr (Lewis) and Meena. It was good times in our little basement suite though Meena mostly avoided us and we were okay with it. We played lots of card games and the thing that still surprises me is how little I ever asked about Julie's boyfriends.
  23. If you had one wish. What would it be? A trip to Hawaii, tomorrow. I really need a warm vacation. Either that or lots of money.
  24. What is something you would learn if you had the chance? Photoshop, it does such incredible things.

Hey, i read your blog all the time and I swear I am trying to get better at keeping mine up dated. So i So remember watching the little Mermaid together like a trillion times, i also remember we went to beauty and the beast in the theater together more then once...and who could forget the thousands of hours playing barbies.

Julie Lewis said...

For the record, there were only two boyfriends and there wasn't much to tell.

Julie Lewis said...

And I went to a Jann Arden concert with you - but maybe that was your second one.

Laura said...

But I didn't ever ask any questions about them... what a crappy roommate. Not the way I was with later roommates.

Jenny said...

Oh my Gosh, I think my mom worked at the lunch counter at the Magrath Trading Company...or at least she eats there now with my uncle as a funny joke.

I had no idea you were from Magrath! My parents moved there a few years ago, so I go out there quite a bit!

Laura said...

I still crave those burgers occasionally and the song Kiss from a Rose takes me right back to the smelly, hot, greasy lunch counter in the summer.
Was born and raised in Magrath, moved to Calgary after graduation.

Michelle said...

Oh my gosh I loved this. I soooo crave TC burgers...mmm.... I saw Kelly the other day by the way. And I totally forgot Jenn's flowers smelled like bologna, hahahaaa! And what was your car's name... Telula right? Was she the one that honked every time you turned a corner? Haha! This was cute!

Laura said...

Telula was the blue car we had that died pretty quick. I don't remember a car honking when it turned corners, I bet Jenn will though.

Jenn said...

I forgot about the flowers too!
The car was actually a honda Prelude, and it's name was James (after James Halliday, who was the previous owner). I don't remember it honking, though. I had an old car named Rusty, and it had no horn, so Mike gave me a bumper sticker that said "Horn broken--watch for finger."
Good 'ol Telula; she only cost
$100. What a steal!

Cathy West said...

Laura: Who is Jenny and who are her parents. Maybe I know them.

Michelle said...

Hmmm I see. Yeah I remember it was James now. I also remember (I think)that it was Tiffany Anderson that told us about the car that honked when you turned a corner. Hmmmm.
