Filed under: tags — sassinak @ 12:00 pm

6. your prom night?

went with an ex. as in he said he would come to the formal and then dumped me. eventually i forced him to come because he said yes and i bought tickets. he spent most of the evening trying to get me back after dumping me for someone else who was willing to sleep with him. [i was all virginal you know]

eventually the evening ended. sounds bad but wasn’t. i looked awesome and had the hottest date there and for the last two months of high school i was suddenly popular. what a sad commentary on high school life that is.

and? great time with the rest of the group who were ‘my’ group you know? (i was of course in each of their ‘my’ groups as well lol)

no. well depends who you ask. no … okay apparently i’m related to puccini.

8. have you had to take a loan out for school?


9. do you know the words to the song on your myspace profile?

there is no song on my myspace profile. but i like singing in the car so IF i had a song i would most likely know the words. that said, i only do myspace to comment on brandon’s blog. (brandon is here and you should go listen to his stuff right now – okay after you comment on this post :P)

wisdom teeth i guess, but … no, the cleaning of death, after seven years and she was mean to me too.

  6. Grendel got his postcard last week. I’m surprised that it took so long to come from Mexico. I figured with free trade and their desire to modernise, the Mexicans would want to show the world that they couuld move mail a bit more efficiently.

    At the same time, it’s too darn hot there to move too quickly. They don’t need winter coats.

    glad you enjoyed my number 25 :)

  8. othercat: mine showed up monday… but i may have missed checking on friday… it’s possible :)
    hey it could be OUR mail system too, you never know right? mmm no winter coats… such a weird idea…

    elle: yay!
    i tried to be RILLY RILLY easy to find. and the blogger comments being down ALL FUCKING DAY yesterday makes me feel better about it.
    your number 25 was better than anyone else’s…
    i’m going to the gladstone for the turning point party, are you coming with?

  9. I am taking my ass out for dinner Saturday but I am hoping he picks up the tab….hheheheeh sorry 6!

    Ummmm I hate to sound stupid but…loonie?

    Comment by madamex — November 9, 2006 @ 2:24 pm | Reply

  10. madame i think that’s a great plan. i think my best friend is coming dancing maybe so that’s cool!

    loonie is a golden coin that’s worth a dollar. it’s called a loonie because the original had a loon on the back. so of course, when the 2 dollar coin was released? we called it the twonie. :)

    I think I’m the only one that doesn’t like what the ocean does to my hair.

  13. nat: yay i’m all changed on your blog… go me! i’m leaving the other one there, and someday i’ll probably copy these archives there for posterity, but this place feels like a new apartment… all home but weird.

    it’s a fun meme :)

    kj: nice, i haven’t seen that yet, i’ll go read it now…

    well, i’m italian, i’m supposed to rock with the ocean and the salt and stuff right?

    you don’t need coats you’re from the south! *i* need a sexy coat!
