Some Interesting Misadventures

From Sunday Stealing

My Random Randomness Meme, part 2

1. What was your first alcoholic drink?

A. I don't remember, probably a sip of my father's Jack Daniels. I know in high school I tended to favor Mad Dog 2020. We didn't have wine coolers and such back then.

2. What was your first job?

A. Babysitting. Taking care of the farm when my parents weren't home. And then I worked as a file clerk, all before I was 16.

3. What was your first car?

A. A Datsun. A wagon that was some kind of awful burnt orange color. I had me some interesting misadventures in that car, yes I did.

4. What was your first mobile phone?

A. A Nokia. All you could do was talk on it, too.

5. What is your first proper memory?

A. My mother fainting onto the floor in front of me.

6. Who was your first teacher?

A. The first real teacher I remember was Mrs. Zircle, my first grade teacher. She made me cry.

7. Which fictional character do you wish was real?

A. Intelligence Woman, who goes around saving stupid people from themselves.

8. Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane?

A. Spain. Although I think we had a stopover in England, and I didn't get to see anything but the airport.

9. Who was your first best friend?

A. I had an imaginary friend named Jamie who was my first best friend. My first real best friend that I remember was Chris.

10. What was your first detention for?

A. Ha. I only had one detention and that was for skipping band class.

11. What's your strongest sense?

A. Smell. I can smell stuff no one else can, including snakes and mold.

12. Who was your first kiss?

A. Interestingly enough, his name was Jamie, too. And I married a James. I sense a theme.

13. What was the first film you remember seeing at the cinema?

A. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I was five years old.

14. What's the largest amount of money you've ever won?

A. Probably about $5 bucks. I'm not very lucky that way.

15. What's the largest amount of money you've spent in one spree?

A. Probably about $150. I'm very thrifty, and I don't count big purchases like refrigerators or computers as "sprees."

16. If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

A. Do Not Cross.

17. Have you ever got sweet revenge on anyone?

A. No, I can't say that I have.

18. Have you ever been to a live concert?

A. Yes. I've seen Loretta Lynn, Neil Diamond, Styz, Linda Rondstadt, Elton John, Conway Twitty, The Commodores, Juice Newton, Mannheim Steamroller, and probably a few others that I can't remember in concert. When I was a teenager, Lakeside Amusement Park (which no longer exists) used to have a summer concert series and they brought in a lot of big names or up-and-coming names. Me and my Datsun went to many of those concerts once I was old enough to drive.
19. Have you ever been to see stand up comedy?

A. Yes. I've seen Bill Cosby and Jeff Dunham.

20. Have you ever needed stitches?

A. Not for a deep cut, but I have needed them for surgery. I've got lines all over me.


  1. I remember those old Datsuns! I can totally picture them in my head. Blast from the past. Have a great day!

  2. Mannheim Steamroller--I used to LOVE them! Haven't listened to them in years. . . I need to go check out iTunes!

  3. Lots of good concerts under your belt! I would have enjoyed most of those. Visiting from Sunday Stealing.

  4. I would LOVE to see Jeff Dunham live!

  5. I would love to see Jeff Dunham in person. I love all his shows.

  6. Datsun was my second car. It was the cheapest thing on the lot and had no a/c. My husband had 2 Datsuns. They were great cars

  7. My second car was a Datsun. My first was a 1949 Chevy pickup. I named it Fluffy. I wish Someone could save stupid people from themselves, but I don't think it is possible.

  8. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is the first film I remember seeing at the theater, too.

  9. Love your warning label...:)

  10. I love Mannheim Steamroller!

  11. I had to laugh at number seven. Sadly, I think it would take an entire squadron of Intelligence Women to accomplish that job. The only concert we have in common is Elton John--have seen him three times on tour with Billy Joel.
