12. Who was your favorite teacher?
Shep, Lugar & Leslie – and Mr. Townsend was great for subbing b/c you could ditch class and he was just so not with it (and the stories to tell later in life never fail to entertain or to send me to Hell, eh Tanya?)

I don’t know if I’d do it all over again but I had a blast in high school – miss it
18. What do you remember most about graduation?
I broke my ankle the night before the prom while I was at the school decorating so I had to go to prom and grad on crutches – but I had a blast and the parties were worth it!
19. Favorite memory of your Senior Year?
Had so many great memories it’s hard to narrow it down to one but I remember getting in a car accident during the final English exam. Shep would let you leave after the vocab part and do whatever the heck you wanted as long as the exam was handed in by 5. Kim & I grabbed lunch at McD’s and on the way back got rearended…other dude’s car was wrote off while mine had a little bump in the bumper (hence the name, I guess). We finished our exam after all the hoopla died down & parents were called and THEN went to the hospital. Turns out we got one of the highest marks on the exam.
20. Where were you on senior skip day?
We actually called it Senior Ditch Day and I went to the liquor store (yes, I was underage) and bought booze for my group, then we went to Lumsdens to swim and then to party
21. Did you have a job your senior year?
22. Where did you go most often for lunch?
Senior year I was either in the hallway by the woodshop room causing trouble or else Kim and I were in New Minas at the BK Lounge or wherever
23. Have you gained weight since then?
I lost weight, gained it and have lost it again (I broke the other ankle in college and put on some weight after that – I have bad luck with my feet)
24. What did you do after graduation?
Right after I went to the grad party. 🙂 Then I worked and then went to college and now I have a great career
25. What were you known for in high school?
although I’m not into it or addicted to it as she is, it is a good book….at least so far. And It’s fun to read something fun after my long struggle with FINALLY finishing The Witching Hour….it only took me a year and a half. But I did it. *beams*
Poor Blair is working crappy backshift all weekend but I’m hoping to see him late tomorrow night on a break – I will bring him something cold to drink and pehaps some watermelon to keep him hydrated and cool – or maybe I can talk him into coming to my place Sunday morning instead of going home…but we’ll see what happens. I miss him so much it’s ridiculous.
This evening I am going to visit Linda’s grave with Elizabeth….It’s going to be difficult but it will be good. Neither of us have been there since the funeral. I’m still reeling from her death…it’s still new and it was so sudden. I continue to hear her voice and see her in cars…then I have to remind myself that she is gone. But it’s funny b/c the same thing happens with my Nan….I keep thinking I see her….or someone will stroll by that reminds me of her. I saw her sister Peggy one day from afar and my heart dropped to my knees….she looked so much like her.
We’ll see how this weekend goes and how many adventures I can accumulate. I’ll keep you posted! 🙂
