i was tagged by vintage mommy to answer 7 random or weird things about myself.
so here goes-
#1. when i was 8, there was a show & tell day in my class. i chose 3 things to share- my roller skates, purple ziggy bag, and a rock that i got in Columbia State Park. i roller skated to school, carrying my (very large) rock in my ziggy bag.
i still have the rock. oh, and i got roller skates for my birthday last year :-).
#2. at age 10 i dressed in my mom's waitress uniform, walked 10 blocks to the restaurant where she worked, and asked the owner for a job. he told me to come back when i was 16.
i didn't, and have never waitressed.
#3. in 4th & 5th grade i would sing "Gloria" by Laura Branigan, and "Harden my Heart" by Quarterflash (wow, am i aging myself), at the bus stop, and at recess. i even had back up singers!
#4. as a 7th grader i was invited to an 8th grader's slumber party. the 8th graders all spoke giberish, and kept talking about "de thg n thg ise." ME, aahhh! i learned how to speak giberish the next week!
#5. in jr. high i carried a red brush with me at all times so that i could make sure my feathered hair lay perfect. this was before i discovered aqua net!
#6. i went through an Elvis Presley phase in high school. my room was decorated with elvis pix, i sang an elvis medley in Oakdale's Jr. Miss, and did a Cheap Trick lip sink of "Don't Be Cruel" for a school rally. WHY, WHY!!!!
#7. my first car was a 65 ford falcon (which might explain the elvis phase). i use to honk the horn a lot! until it was dismantled by a classmate. oh how i miss this car (gulp)! it was so FUN, and so me (maybe if i painted my mini-van red with a white stripe it would fit me??). the previous owner even had a banner made for the back window that read "NEICIE."
and here it is, my senior photo! i sit here thinking- i spent a lot of time, mousse, and hair spray to get my hair to look like that, just so i could make fun of it now!
i'd love to hear wacky things you did during your childhood, see pix of your first cars, and see your embarrassing hair dos (and you should know this isn't my worst. the hair styles got much worse before it got better).
