More roses from my yard....and a little more
You know how I love memes! So when I saw this one on Daisy Lupin's blog I knew I had to do it. So here goes....
What was your first childhood pet?
I had a kitten named "Boots"....a black kitty with white feet.
What was your favourite comic?
Katy Keene....she was a fashion model and her boyfriend was a boxer (can't remember his name though)....and I also like "Archie and Veronica" and "Little Lottie" (I think that was her name! It's been awhile!!)
What was your favourite childhood book?
I loved "Black Beauty" and all the Trixie Belden books
Did you ever have an imaginary friend as a child?
Did you play an instrument as a child?
No....I desperately wanted to play the piano but my dad didn't think it was necessary.
What was the first hit single record you bought?
It was a 78 RPM of Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel
What tune sums up teenage summers?
"Only the Lonely"
What was first pop concert you went to?
I was an adult before I ever saw a concert of any kind. I lived in an area that was pretty much devoid of anything like that.
Fave teenage TV programme?
Were you a naughty or a good girl at school?
Good! I was always told that if I got into trouble at school I would be in even bigger trouble at home.
Miss Popularity, Artsy Pants, weirdo or geek, which of these groups classify you at secondary[high] school?
Probably weirdo! None of those actually fit. I was terribly shy.
Girl most likely to [as in year book]?
I don't remember anything in particular but I was voted one of the best dressed in my class and also one of the biggest flirts! I guess I got over that shyness by senior year!!
What colour did you paint your bedroom as a teenager?
Two walls were pink with gray trim and two walls were gray with pink trim. I had a gray cotton shag rug on the floor and the curtains were pink on the gray wall and gray on the pink wall.
Very first paid job ever?
Have you ever been really drunk?
Yes but not as a teenager. It came much later!
Did you smoke dope? and if so did you do a Bill Clinton [ smoking but not inhaling]?
No. I can truthfully say I have never done any drugs of any kind. I think it's a waste.
A stupid thing you did?
As a teenager I did so many I couldn't even begin to tell you all of them! Let's just say it involved a boy and let it go at that.
Left handed or right handed?
Should you play a board game with me?
I don't know....should you? I like to play Scrabble and that's about it.
If you came to visit me what would we do?
If someone came to visit me right now I would be in big trouble! My guest room is full of boxes! But under normal circumstances we would probably have some tea and chat, maybe spend some time in my crafty room (if the visitor was interested in that sort of thing) but we would have to go out for dinner or get HB to cook 'cause I'm not good in the kitchen! I would like to take you to L.A. and show you all the sights and let you see some of the beauty and the weirdness that makes it such an unusual place.
