Yup, I’m a Twit!

Turning Back the Clock

Or, more accurately, the calendar.

Snagged from CBear and Poops

1. Did you date someone from your school? Yes.  Two someones, actually.  And I’m still in touch with both of them.

2. Did you car pool to school? I didn’t drive until my sophomore year of college, but I had friends in my neighborhood who were lovely enough to drive me.  🙂

3. What kind of car did you have? Uh… see above.

4. What kind of car do you have now? Kaylee!  My purple Honda Fit!  😀

5. Its Sunday night…where are you now? Heh.  I’m writing this to publish later, so amusingly it IS Sunday night right now.  Anyway, right now I’m in my craft room.  Usually, I’m in the living room with Kris, unless it’s tech week for a show, which would mean we’d be at the Bowie Playhouse.

6. It is Sunday night…where were you then? Probably at home doing homework.  Maybe with some friends there working together.

7. What kind of job did you have in high school? I worked at Long John Silver’s the summer before my senior year, but that was it.  Mom and Dad were of the opinion that school WAS my job at that point, and I appreciate that.

8. What kind of job do you do now? I’m a homemaker.  I cook, I clean, I shop, I pay bills… all very exciting stuff.

9. Were you a party animal? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.  Uh, no.

10. Were you considered a flirt? I don’t think so, but since I found out a few years back that I was some sort of cult leader, who knows?

11. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir? I was in chorus from 7th grade through junior year, but couldn’t schedule it as a senior due to conflicts.  So, I helped out with the marching band instead – I was on the squad that carried the American flag for pre-game and parades, and we did the equipment changes for the colorguard, majorettes, and rhythmettes during halftime.

12. Were you a nerd? Pretty much, yeah.  But I was happy being one, and I had like-minded friends, so I never felt like an outcast or anything.

13. Did you get suspended or expelled? See #9.

14. Can you sing the fight song? If someone started it, I could probably join in, but I am blanking at the moment.

15. Who was your favorite teacher? Back then, I’d have said Mr. Scarcelli, who taught trig and calculus, but the more I look back on it, I realize that as much as I did love him, Miss Bowman, my English teacher, was equally amazing.  I was REALLY lucky to have both of them junior AND senior years.

16. Where did you sit during lunch? Uh… in the cafeteria?  We weren’t allowed to eat outside or anything like that.

17. What was your school’s full name? Penn Hills Senior High School.

18. When did you graduate? 1991

19. What was your school mascot? The Indians.  In recent years, though, they’ve changed it to “Big Red” to be a little more culturally sensitive.  That was always part of the nickname anyway, so it doesn’t really bother me.

20. If you could go back and do it again, would you? Oh, HELL no.  I am glad to be back in touch with a lot of people (Yay Facebook!), but senior year sucked massively on a LOT of levels.

21. Did you have fun at Prom? Yes, although I also spent a lot of time trying to restrain myself from killing my date, who was not exactly being awesome that night.  (Don’t go to the prom with your ex-boyfriend when you’ve started dating someone else.  Awkward!)

22. Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with? Yup!  Although I talk to his wife (who I STILL haven’t met) more.  😀

23. Are you planning on going to your next reunion? Absolutely!

24. Do you still talk to people from school? Yup!  Thank goodness for Facebook – I’ve found a TON of people in the last year.

25. School Colors? Red and gold.

26. What celebrities came from your high school? There was a guy in my class who played football for a year or two (Tom Tumulty – nice guy, for as much as I knew him, anyway), but years before me was a guy named Kevin Peter Hall.  No one knows the name, but he played the Predator in Predator, Harry in Harry and the Hendersons, and was Dr. Lincoln on “Misfits of Science”.  VERY tall man.  Sadly, he died of AIDS-related complications the year I graduated.

27. Did you play a sport? Uh, no.  Me = not an athlete.

28. What was your favorite club? Drama!  This should surprise no one…

29. What class or teacher did you fear? I can’t really say I “feared” any class, but I really, really didn’t like gym.  I still, almost 20 years later, have nightmares that I didn’t dress often enough for gym and therefore won’t graduate.

30. What class was your favorite? Senior year, probably calculus.  See, I TOLD you I was a nerd!

    Huh, my HS mascot was also the Indians and the nickname of the marching band was the Big Red. Our colors were red and white. How’s that grab ya?

  • bezzie

    “Big Red”? Hm, I kind of think that sounds more offensive than The Indians. But what do I know, I was a Moose. 😉

  • Man I’m so bummed. We didn’t have a mascot, you couldn’t drive in that country until you were 21 and we don’t have reunions. Lame.
