Feels Like The First Time

Stolen from trektone's friend thatcrazycajun

[1] Who was your FIRST prom date?
Sony's brother Tommy. I've mentioned this before, but forget the prom - I was so excited because he took me up for my first plane ride in a Cesena! We flew from Oakland's north airport to Livermore's airport, taxi'd into the parking lot of The Red Baron and had dinner. The trip to the Mark Hopkins in an old VW Beetle was anticlimatic. *g*

[2] Do you still talk to your FIRST love?
Gregory Valdevinos. Kindergarten. The family moved away and I never saw him again.

[3] What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?
Some fancy red wine. My aunt was insulted when I told her that it tasted like fermented tofu.

[4] What was your FIRST job?
Where I actually got paid? Stuffing envelopes with the holiday ads of the furniture store where Mom worked.

[5] What was your FIRST car?
A Toyota 1972 corolla - yellow with a black and brown checkered top.
Affectionately known as the "Swamp" because the front windshield leaked when it rained.

[6] Who was the FIRST person to text you today?
Nobody; haven't had a text message today.

[7] Who is the FIRST person you thought of this morning?
My sister G who spent the night.

[8] Who was your FIRST grade teacher?
Mrs. Cleo Lekas. Had her for both first and second grade.

[9] Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?
I was 3. It was 1964 and we flew on Western Airlines from Oakland to Los Angeles for my cousin Tetsuo's wedding. Mom, K and I sat together and Dad sat behind us. K & I both had matching white purses which each carried a little toy and some rice crackers. I traded my rice crackers with the guy in front of us who had Fritos.

[10] Who was your FIRST best friend and are you still friends with them?
In first and second grade, my best friend was Edmund Jones. We had all kind of adventures during recess and lunch breaks. In third grade he finally figured out that I was a girl (cooties and all) and didn't want to have anything to do with me anymore.

[11] What was your FIRST sport played?
Kickball? Dodgeball?

[12] Where was your FIRST sleep over?
My first sleep over with a friend was in 5th grade. Donna Turkletop had a slumber party for her birthday.

[13] Who was the FIRST person you talked to today?
My sister G

[14] Whose wedding were you in the FIRST time?
October 18, 1980. I was maid of honor when Joycie and Ron were married.

[15] What was the FIRST thing you did this morning?
Hit the off button on the beeper alarm.

[16] What was the FIRST concert you ever went to?
Barry Manilow at the Concord Pavillion

[17] FIRST tattoo or piercing?
Got my ears piered when I was 18 at Southland's Bedazzled

[18] FIRST foreign country you went to for vacation?
I landed in Spain and had to deal with missing luggage. Our connecting flight to London had been over booked, so we had to wait until they figured out where to put us. Flew then to London (Gatwick) - but our ground transportation was at Heathrow. Nice way to start a 58 day vacation - first time all by myself...

[19] What was your FIRST run in with the law?
I got pulled over for not having my current registration tags on the van. In 3rd grade, I got to turn on the siren in a police car because my drawing pleased Officer Friendly.

ETA 10-26-08 11:56am: Actually, the very first time I got pulled over was when I was leaving work. I guess it looked suspicious - I had loaded a box into my car - it was probably close to 10pm and it was in industrial area. I had gone about 50 feet down the driveway and there were flashing lights behind me. Oops. Had to explain to the officer that the box held the weekly backup tapes...

[20] When was your FIRST detention?
Detention?! I was a goody two shoes. The worst I got was a mark for talking.

[21] What was the FIRST state you lived in?
California. Have lived here all my life.

[22] Who was the FIRST person to break your heart?
I think my heart is pretty much in one piece still.

[23] Who was your FIRST roommate?
My sister K.

[24] Where did you go on your FIRST limo ride?
I rode in the limo with Mom, K, G and I think Auntie Mary and Auntie Haru to my Dad's committal service.

[25] Who will be the FIRST to repost this?
Have no idea.
