One: When I was in high school, I always wanted to be an AV kid but they were all boys. Besides, AV wasn't "cool." But I still always wished I was one of them and played with gadgets and levers and buttons and dials and such. I guess I really am a geek and always have been.

Two: I stole my brother's slide rule when he went off to college. I am still sorry I eventually lost it.

I had a crush on an AV kid in grade 10, but he wouldn't look twice at me even though I was obviously so much higher on the social hierarchy than he was!

Go figure!

(irony intentional)

My confession: I kept a handy 2' level that belonged to my buddy. When he asked about it, I feigned ignorance. I still use it. It's really handy.

AV?! Girls! I liked the pothead lacrosse players. 6'7" Dutch guy with wavy auburn hair and a laugh that rattled windows is still my favorite boyfriend of all time. Pan- I mean, hats off, Lex!

Cheryl, this blog has been kickin' these past couple days. I've really enjoyed reading it. Can you throw it back and do a good Grace Slick singing 'feed your head'? It'd be apt here.

Sage: He was probably too terrified to ever look in the direction of a "popular" girl. You should've taken the chance. He might be a terribly nice guy with great computer skills.

And given he was most likely a virgin, just imagine the things you could have taught him. He could be a tremendous, careful, slow, patient and diligent lover now from your tutelage.

Ahh, opportunities missed. I've always wanted to fuck a virgin and spend a few months teaching him just what women like. I would consider it my contribution to feminism at large because many men really should be better lovers!

Kristin: Lacrosse players are potheads? Cool! Didn't you get the memo to always hang on to a boyfriend named "Lex?"

In the days before my singing voice was utterly ravaged by cigarettes, I could belt out all sorts of wonderful stuff and had a pretty nice, if untrained, voice.

Yeah, I coulda made it through all the "feed your heads" at the end of White Rabbit, with a little libretto thrown in for good measure. Or my favorite Grace Slick moment...singing backup to Robert Plant on Misty Mountain Hop (Zeppelin VI, I believe). More often I was singing along to Janis Ian, though. I was a morose child.

Thanks for the kind words. When I can keep my head above water and am not swamped by the emotional tides, it seems the blog does better. I hope I never go to where I've been the last couple of weeks...it was dark and scary!

Restarted Wellbutrin today.
