Memology 101

As tagged by Andi over at Poot and Cubby. You know I can't resist a good meme!

What were you doing 10 years ago?

I laughed when I read this. Fortunately for all you out there, I kept a diary from the ages 12 to 18. So, after a quick look, I found my diary from 1997 and even found an entry from June 27/97, 11:33 pm:
I am so pathetic! Every love song on the radio reminds me of Brenton and they're all starting to make sense to me now. Every cartoon and TV show I see reminds me of him and us. I watched Aladdin and seeing Aladdin and Jasmine together in love made me think of me and Brenton. How pathetic is that! This feeling I have for him makes me act and think pathetically. You know you're really happy when you find yourself relating to love on cartoons! I'm even singing corny love songs and they're so beautiful! Just like our relationship!

Oh sweet blooming petunias. LMAO! I was 15 when I wrote that, just so you don't all think I'm a total loser. That is possibly the cheesiest thing I've ever read. I think this diary may be good for a laugh-a-thon at my expense.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
I'll give you a hint: I was about 40 lbs heavier and wearing stretchy pants every day. Oh, and my stomach moved as though possessed by an alien.

Five Things You Would Do If You Were a Millionaire

Five Things You Would Never Wear Again

My mom made these dresses for a wedding we attended. THIS!!!

  1. Bathing suits with the little skirts on them

  2. Mathing outfits with my mother and sisters (see above). Oh the humanity!

  3. Those really pointy-toe shoes. They look great on everyone but me.

  4. Any dress that requires me to go braless.

  5. Any bra size less than a D cup

Five Favorite Toys

I don't play with toys (much), but I used to enjoy

  1. Lego - and not the dumb pink ones.  REAL lego, dammit!

  2. my old fisher price record player

  3. Ice cream pails - for collecting things, wearing as helmets,etc

  4. Broomsticks and string to go fishing in our ditch in the front yard. Oh, and rocks for bait.  My dad loved that (insert sarcastic laugh here).

  5. Blankets and pillows to make forts in our living room.  My mom loved that.  Made cleaning SO easy, right?

As for tagging, my sister loves doing these, but she is behind on her memes, so I'll just tag Krista and Kara instead.  The Kloganistas!


  1. Oh the angst of being 15!

    Love that song Possession, I belt it out in my car and sound EXACTLY like Sarah!

    I miss the old fashioned fisher price record players!

  2. That diary post is bloody hilarious. Makes me wonder where mine are....yikes....don't think I want to find them.

  3. Oh, so many comments.

    I am dying over the diary post. Seems to me someone awhile ago did a whole thing on her blog where she posted old diary entries. I must find it for you.

    My other two favorite things were, of course, you paying off my student loans. And the quote "salsa and nachos to bring it to my mouth". Pure comedy.

  4. love this. the diary entry is classic!! I'll try to finish mine by the end of the weekend!

  5. Ah, the young. So naive! Don't knock the skirted swimsuit, honey. Someday, you, too, will be 36.


  6. Nice gloves with your pretty aqua dresses!
