Ok, I have to do it since Lora did...

Year: Graduated from high school in 1990.

1. Who was your best friend? Ummmm, I really didn't have except Pete Delaney, and Lora was cool, too.

2. What sports did you play? Depends on which high school. I ran x-country, track, and basketball at one, but at Kingston I didn't do any sports.

3. What kind of car did you drive? None. I wasn't allowed to drive due to the "incident". If I get enough requests, I'll post it sometime.

4. It's Friday night, where are you at? Working at McDonalds, then in my senior year I was getting ready for bike races.

5. Were you a party animal? Yeah, well funny thing about that, don't you have to be invited, and to be invited don't you have to have friends?

6. Were you in the "In Crowd"? No. Hell, any crowd would have been better than the lack of a crowd I was part of. However, I did get voted "Best Legs" in the yearbook...even had more votes than the leading girl....

7. Ever skip school? Heheh. Well, once they abolished the attendance policy in October of our senior year, it was really easy. Actually, I think I was absent over half of my senior year.

8.Ever smoke a cigarette? Nope.

9. Were you a nerd? Not really. I had about an 89 avg, (had to research this question-- oh that makes me a nerd!!!!) but didn't care.

10. Did you ever get suspended/expelled? No. Go figure.

11. Can you sing the Alma Mater? Apparently, we had one I've just learned. That'd be a no.

12. Who was your favorite teacher? Didn't really have one. I wasn't usually there enough to really know teachers.

13. Favorite class? Orchestra by far.

14. What was your school's full name?Kingston High School.

15. School mascot?Tigers.

16. Did you go to Prom? No, again that whole social vacuum period of my life....

17. Would you go back again and do it over? Well, since I really didn't do it the first time, sure, why not?

18. What do you remember most about graduation? Hot as hell. Sitting on the astroturf. Dr Diedrick not offering to shake my hand when I got my diploma. I wouldn't have anyway, it was in a bear hug and no one was going to take it from me.

19. Favorite memory of senior year? Getting pulled over on my bike for doing 42 in a school zone on my way to school on Washington Ave. ( I was drafting a Saab 900, my sprint at the time topped out at about 40) Priceless.

20. Were you ever posted on the senior wall? Maybe in the Dean's office for skipping in a wanted poster...

21. Did you have a job your senior year? Mc Donald's, bike shop later on.

22. Who did you date? Amy, Danielle, Diana, Jennifer, some other random underclasspeople...

23. Have you gained weight since then? Tricky question. I was 172 about this time of year then, got sick, dropped to 139 and almost died, graduated at 154, and weigh 162 now, so yes. A bit. But I look every bit as young. I like to think. LOL!!!!

24. What did you do after graduation? Went to Vermont, raced bikes, dropped out of Vermont, raced more, went to the local comm college, got chicken pox...

Pretty entertaining. Ok, I think it's time I drag the KHS Maroon out of the bookshelf and scan some pics. What do you say? Lora, I promise not to post any of anyone but me.

I think you should definitely post some pics of Lora.

And "best legs" - your yearbook was racier than mine ;)

Too bad they didn't get a pic of my "gams" as Ms Listort used to call them. She used to drag me into her freshmen homeroom and exhibit times have changed.

Lora said...

I forgot you had gotten nicest legs. Seems you were rather proud of the fact, considering you made sure you highlighted it when you signed my yearbook. I never did get that map of the bike shop you said you had made for me.

Mike said...

Yeah, well I still have that map in my yearbook...I'm scanning the yearbook as we forewarned.

The Ms. Listort thing reminds my yoga teacher training program, the anatomy teacher made one guy take his shirt off and she pointed out his deltoids, scapula, etc. He was a good sport about it.

I wanna know about the incident!
