NBPM10 - Monday Meme - High School

(c) 2008 Ms. Huis Herself at

Another Monday, another meme. This one comes rather long ago from Ewe over at Wherever Ewe Go, There Ewe Are. I figured I'd do it someday, and a Monday during NaBloPoMo seems like the right time.
(P.S. Thanks, Ewe! Hope you don't mind I stole it.)

High School Meme

1 Who was your best friend? Polly

2 What high school sports did you play? Track, but I was also a volleyball cheerleader one season.

3 What kind of car did you drive? Thanks, Dad for the correction! The lovely reddish brown "Betty Rootbeer" was actually a diesel Chevy Caprice. The Cutlass was what I drove in college. (I know squat about cars.)

4 It's Friday night, where were you? Driving around with friends in a slightly larger town nearby.

5 Were you a party animal? Um, no.

6 Were you considered a flirt. Are you kidding? I was a nerdy brain.

7 Were you in band, orchestra or choir? Yes; didn't have it at my school; yes. Also swing choir.

7b I'm adding this one in myself... Any other extracurriculars? Yes - theatre, speech team, Knowledge Bowl, SADD, student council - it was a small school.

8 Were you a nerd? See the previous 3 questions...very much so!

9 Did you get suspended/expelled? Are you kidding? No. I was a good kid.

10 Can you sing the fight song? Not any more, but I played it a bunch of times in pep band.

11 Who was your favorite teacher? Miss Jones, Mr. Halliday, and Mr. Dinsmore

12 School mascot? Mustangs and Pintos

13 Did you go to Prom? Yes - three times. (When I was a sophomore, I was dating the junior class president.)

14 If you could go back and do it over, would you? NO!

15 What do you remember most about graduation? That my dad, who was on the school board, gave me my diploma. Also, thinking that I'd probably remember the full names of my 10 classmates my entire life.

16 Where were you on senior skip day? We didn't have one, but we did take a senior class trip up to Valley Fair and Murphy's Landing.

17 Did you have a job your senior year? Nope. Too many extracurriculars.

18 Where did you go most often for lunch? Closed campus, so down to the basement lunch room with its row of microwaves because we were too small for a hot lunch program. Student council sold frozen burritos, burgers, and other microwaveables you'd find at a gas station.

19 Have you gained weight since then? Some, but not too much.

20 What did you do after graduation? Up to college.

21 When did you graduate? Way back in '91

22 Who was your senior prom date? John

23 Are you going / did you go to your 10 year reunion? No. I would have, but it fell on the weekend my mother, mother-in-law, and I were out in Montana together. I did go to our 5 year, but that was just us all getting together at a local supper club.

24 Who was your homeroom teacher? Didn't have 'em.

25 Who will repost this after you? Oh, probably some other NaBloPoMo'er looking for filler... :)

Such a small class you had! Wow!

Mary Beth said...

Oh yes, there will definitely be some NaBloPoMo'ers poaching this when desperation strikes:)

Mugsy said...

I'm stealing it too. Since I was struggling on day 6, I'm sure this will come in handy...

Betty Rootbeer was a Chevy Caprice and a Diesel. The Cutlass was your college car YOPA
