Sunday Stealing: The "Leave It to Meme" Meme

You can play here.

1. Who was your FIRST date?

That would be a girl called Catherine who I met on a school ski trip. She broke up with me not long before the end of it. I thought I'd finally gotten over it too, but this meme has to rake up all the memories again.

2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love?


3. What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?

That would be a half pint of lager when I was seventeen.

4. What was your FIRST job?

That would be my current job, a computer programmer.

5. What was your FIRST car?

Well the first car I learned to drive in was a white Austin Metro.

6. Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?

That was to France on a school ski trip that I'd been trying to forget.

7. Who was your FIRST best friend & do you still talk?

That'd probably be a kid called Graham and I've not talked to him for thirty years or so, mainly because we've not seen each other since then.

8. Whose wedding did you attend the FIRST time?

That would be my uncle's wedding where we all went on a boat ride afterwards for the reception. Overall it was a fun day, although one of my other uncles drank too much beforehand and never even made it to the church.

9. Tell us about your FIRST roommate.

Not sure I've ever had a roommate as such. I guess the nearest would be my first hall of residence at University where I shared a flat with six other guys (Ian, a very funny guy who looked like Jesus, Hywel, who was a big fan of the actual Jesus, Andrew, who played Chess with me, another Andrew, who had a birthday just before mine and I think that was the most interesting thing about him, Saeed, who was a muslim medic with two simultaneous girlfriends, Bob, who seemed a nice guy and I really should have something interesting to say about him, and a cool guy called Simon who had a lovely girlfriend Jo who once made me a birthday cake). I remember in our first week the flat of girls above us complained because we were hoovering the lawn at three in the morning; I think we sort of went downhill after that.

10. If you had one wish, what would it be (other than more wishes)?

That I was in Delaware with A Blog In The Rough.

11. What is something you would learn if you had the chance?

If I knew what I wanted to learn, then I would have probably learned it by now.

12. Did you marry the FIRST person you were in love with?


13. What were the first lessons you ever took and why?

Swimming lessons when I was seven or so, because my friend Graham was going to them too.

14. What is the first thing you do when you get home?

Lock the door, otherwise I'd probably forget.

I loved your answers as always. I realise this wasn't the point of...anything really, but I also love the word 'Delaware'.

A Blog In The Rough said...

I don't know why I read that you learned on an Alfa Romeo, my jaw dropped on the floor. Then I reread it and all was lost, *sigh*

Interesting answer for #14. Locking yourself IN.

Mine's posted now...I do hope you can find a couple of minutes to come visit with me. I enjoyed reading your answers to this most personal meme. It was fun! Happy Sunday.

Your description of your room-mates amused me muchly, although I feel a little bad for Bob xD

Mimi Lenox said...

Baking you a cake for your birthday is a nice thing to do. This meme brought back a lot of memories for people.

And locking the door is important!

Becca said...

I feel like I was in swimming lessons for like...half of my life.
