For a change in the news feed, tell us about your SENIOR year of high school! The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be!!

The year was: 1987

1. Did you know your spouse? I've never been married.

2. Did you car pool to school? No. My mom drove me, but no one else in my neighborhood attended my high school.

3. What kind of car did you have? I didn't own a car, but I occasionally got to borrow my mom's Ford Escort station wagon.

4. What kind of car do you have now? A Mazda 3.

5. It's Friday night...where were you? Either at home or at my best friend's house.

6. What kind of job did you have in high school? I was a property clerk at the police department.

7. What kind of job do you have now? I'm a librarian.

8. Were you a party animal? No.

9. Were you a cheerleader? No.

10. Were you considered a jock? No.

11. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir? No.

12. Were you a nerd? Yes.

13. Did you get suspended or expelled? No, but I had been a page for the guidance office and I got kicked out of that.

14. Can you sing the fight song? If we had one, I know nothing about it. Can you tell my school spirit could be measured in negative numbers?

15. Who was/were your favorite high school teacher? My English teacher, Mr. Caldwell.

16. Where did you sit for lunch? With [ profile] bookwurm.

17. What was your school's full name? Larkin High School.

Go team.

19. If you could go back and do it again, would you? Not even if you paid me money.

20. Did you have fun at Prom? I didn't go to prom. Really, I tried never to set foot on school grounds outside of class.

21. Do you still talk to the person you went to Prom with? See above.

22. Are you planning on going to your next reunion? No. I went to my 10 year reunion because I knew it was going to be a train wreck, but I perversely needed to know what flavor of train wreck it would be. Curiosity satisfied, I never went back. My best friend and I now spend the day of every reunion eating junk food and watching Martin Blank attend his high school reunion in Grosse Pointe Blank.

23. Are you still in contact with people from school? Two of them, yes.

24. What are/were your school's colors? Blue and white.

Copy and paste. Let's hear your story.

[shudder] I'm going to pass on the trip down memory lane. I've tried to forget as much as I can about high school. My nostalgia for that time period is limited to spending time with you and my sister, and to certain TV shows. (Speaking of which, did you know that full episodes of Dave Allan at Large are on YouTube?)

I did not know that. I did find full episodes of Adderly once upon a time, but I don't know if they're still there.
