1. the most embarrassing thing you've done to get the attention of a boy?
In high school, one of my best guy friends wouldn't pull the trigger and ask me to our senior prom. He wanted to...I wanted him to...everybody else thought it was a no-brainer. For some unknown reason, though, he was too nervous to ask me.
So...one Friday night I'm out with some friends. At one point, we were at McDonald's just sitting around eating and having a good time and he walks in with a couple of friends. He comes over and sits down with me, we talk and laugh and our conversation starts going in a direction that makes me think "ok...he's going to ask me". He kisses me on the cheek, says he'll talk to me later and gets up to leave. I'm done with it. I get up ON THE TABLE and proceed to read him the riot act about not having the balls to ask me to prom...at the TOP OF MY LUNGS. When I'm finished, I realize the entire place is silent...and everyone is staring at me. I just stand there...on the table. He finally says "will you go to prom with me?" and after a long pause I respond "sure". I climb down, find my seat and he continues on out the door with his friends. I was completely embarrassed for the rest of the night.
He told me later that it was the funniest yet the coolest thing he'd ever seen. Oh...and we had an AWESOME time at prom. :-)
2. high school: great time or horrible time? why?
I loved high school. I wasn't one of the "popular" people (thank goodness) but I had a great group of friends and a great time. I belonged to just about every extracirricular group I could join and I played on the volleyball team and ran track. I was always busy and just had a really great time.
3. family member you're closest to and why?
I asked this question not because I love see and hear other people talk with great affection about their healthy family relationships. I don't have family to speak of. I'm an only child, never knew my dad and don't speak to my mother. I guess the person I was closest to till she died was grandma Betty. She died when I was 19 and I was devastated. Growing up, I spent many a night at grandma Betty's house. She was such a sweet, loving, giving woman. If there was ever one person I didn't want to disappoint, it was her. Even now, if I fuck up I think to myself "grandma Betty would be so disappointed with that". Not a day goes by that I don't think about her and I miss her dearly.
I suppose the reason I like "True Blood" so much is because I can related to both Sookie and Tara so well: Sookie because of her relationship with her grandmother and Tara because of her relationship with her mother.
