OK - I haven't memed much, but I couldn't even finish reading my bud's post before I had to hijack it for my own. Sue me. Also, I must be congratulated for posting twice in a day. Well, I don't have to have congrats... I guess.
Who was your FIRST Homecoming date?
When I was a senior I took a guy who was younger than me (a Sophomore, heaven forfend) to a homecoming dance - basketball - because I was a candidate... because I made my friends on the team nominate me. I was having a rotten "me, me, me" year.
What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?
I'm sure it was beer. I'm sure I was no more than 3. I'm sure I have had maybe 3 since. Foul stuff.
What was your FIRST job?
Eckerd Drugs. Cashier. Booooooring. Retail is not my forte.
What was your FIRST car?
1984 silver-blue Pontiac Firebird with T-tops and flip-up lights. Soooo redneck, soooo freakin' cool.

Dunno - phone battery's dead. Probably no one.
Who is the FIRST person you thought of this morning?
Who was your FIRST grade teacher?
Mrs. Johnson. Matthews Elementary, Virginia.
Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?
I think it was probably from Georgia to Virginia - I think. From one parent to the other for a summer visit. Solo.
Who was your FIRST best friend and are you still friends with them?
Lisa Cutch. Or Kutch. She was missing her two front teeth for the year-and-a-half we were friends. I'd have no idea how to find her now. I wonder if she remembers me.
Who was your FIRST kiss?
Dav - Short for Davenport. Oh... my... goddess. Set the Gold Standard, for sure.
Where was your FIRST sleep over?
Maybe at my friend Shelly's house. She lived "catty-corner" across the street from my grandparents' house. My grama's term - I have no idea how to spell it.

My hubby. See the previous post today for more on that interaction.

Stretched, read a few pages of a book, got out of bed, washed my face... Ahhh, Saturdays.
What was the FIRST concert you ever went to?
Alabama. Not in Alabama. In Michigan.
FIRST tattoo and/or piercing?
Pierced my ears when I was 9, 10 and 11 (for a total of 5 holes). First tat was a sunshine on the inside of my right ankle.
FIRST foreign country you went to?
Canada. When I was fifteen.

Good heavens... "Goonies"?
When was your FIRST detention?
I never had one. (Yes, this echoes my friend's answer - it applies.)

Have you ever called a person useless?
Perhaps. One of my favorite quotes from the Firefly episode "Shindig" - "Forgive my rudeness; I cannot abide useless people."
What object in your room is really important to you?
My notebooks, probably. They contain so many thoughts and notes and pontifications; I could never replace them.
Are you good at hiding your feelings?
Nah. They show on my face and in my posture.
Would you kiss an ugly person for $1,000?
This is a patently odd question. I think I'll have to pass.

Patently odd. But not in the same way as the previous question was patently odd.
Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings?
Do your initials spell out a word?

Yup. Mutts. Hot pink. From the Evil Empire. Sue me.

A couple shirts. They're cute, too. (My husband thinks they're sexy - can't beat that.)

I think one of them is nearby (within 30 miles or so). One is in New York and another is in the D.C. area. No idea about any of the others.
If you had to sleep with a teacher from high school, who would it be?
Mr. Ahr. He was from elementary school. And I'm making the assumption that he would still look like he did then, since it's a ridiculous hypothetical anyway.

I would except for the fact that I usually shower while everyone else in the house is asleep.

Publix - chips and dip.

Yup. On the three news networks, during a "feel-good" segment featuring a class trip to a pizza joint. I was in, like, fifth grade.

Eeek! How could I count? My parents were Army first and afterward roving maniacs.
Do your parents drink coffee every morning?
I'm pretty sure they do because they always dig out our coffee maker when they visit.
Have you ever donated blood?
I don't think so - I keep getting tatoos around the time an opportunity arises. That's an automatic "thanks, but no thanks."
One song that's meaningful to you?
