Because I am a total sheep, but you knew that already.

Ten Firsts
First Best Friend: Fiona W
First Screen Name: AAA (when making the high score table on the Good Ol' spacies)
First Pet: Freckles, cat.
First Piercing: Ears, about a year ago.
First Crush: The first I can remember was Glen L until I whacked his bag to get his attention and learned the hard way that he played the clarinet. Physical pain clears the fog of inappropriate crushes I find.
First CD Bought: Jazz (Queen)
First Car: Bronze 1984 Fiat Uno, with central locking you could hear across the road and The Devil's Own Gearbox. In a brief but intense affair with a lampost, it's heart was broken.
First True Love: M
First Stuffed Animal: Probably a homemade version of Rupert Bear.
First Words: No idea (as in I have no idea, not I said "no idea")
First Game System: I had a Mario Brothers King Kong handheld back in the 1980s, does that count?

Nine Lasts
Last Alcoholic: A sip of someone else's beer from a Waiheke vineyard in September.
Last Movie Seen: Love Actually, last night.
Last CD Played: News of the World (Queen), in the car this afternoon.
Last Bubble Bath: Thursday night.
Last Time You Cried: Last night.
Last Time You Laughed: At inappropriate placard slogans at a meeting, this afternoon.

I don’t remember the clarinet thing, but I do remember sitting on the bench outside Room 4 at GPS and asking to borrow your little suitcase school bag. You let me and I used it to whack the bush behind you to stir up the bees. I was trying to drive them away … I really was! :)

span said...

my word i have absolutely no recollection of those events! i still have that suitcase though, it's very useful. i wonder if your mum and my mum still chat in the supermarket from time to time?

I think they do; and probably continue to lament our "silly political ideas" and wonder when we'll "grow out of them."

Apathy Jack said...

Actually, when you referred to "The Ga,me" my initial reasction was to think that you might be talking about this guy, or this guy...

Jesus Crux said...

what's your trespass order for? mine's for stalking a chick at a uni Christian campus group, i'm no longer welcome at the Christchurch College of Education (for two more years)

span said...

jack - ahhhhh no.

trespass order was for The Rock radio station in Auckland - i was part of a group of feminists who occupied them to protest the incredibly sexist and homophobic ad campaign they were using at the time. quite a while back now.
