Kit gave me five things that are forcing me to talk about a period in my life that I'm rather embarrassed about. XD;;
Gravitation was many people's first yaoi anime, but I'm an usual case because it was also the first anime, period, that I really got into. I have fond memories from ninth grade of going to Kit's house and watching Gravitation on demand, and reading Hawk Clowd's fic on fanfiction.net. XD;; Those were the days... More recently, rping Hiro on poignation was lots of fun XD;; [EDIT] I forgot to mention the OTHER fond memories of Gravitation, which was Beth showing us the manga at Goucher. I remember being really amused by the "I said it on two! I want a kiss!" scene. XD;
♬ Ridiculous mp3 players
Ok, so I hold that it was not the mp3 player that was ridiculous, but rather it was just ME who was ridiculous. You see, in eighth grade for my bat mitzvah I received an mp3 player from my aunt. I was under the impression that it was pretty good technology at the time (although I may have been wrong) and it also held sentimental value since it had been picked out by my late uncle. And even though it only held about 40 songs, it really was a step up in convenience from my CD player. But all that aside, there's really no excuse for how ridiculous I acted while using it. XD;;; I really have no idea why it caused me to be so insane at Goucher that summer. Long story short, I look ridiculous in every picture from those two weeks, and in nearly every picture I'm listening to my mp3 player. Even pictures I wasn't actually supposed to be in at all. XD;;
♬ Excessive punctuation
Punctuation and I had an unfortunate affair when I was in about eighth and ninth grade. I somehow didn't realize that using only one punctuation mark at a time was really quite sufficient. It ended with me becoming an abusive partner and Kit filing a restraining order on punctuation's behalf. Happily, we soon reconciled and now we get along quite well.
♬ Boom x4
At Goucher's dance camp, the jazz teacher was Lester, an amazing and hilarious gay man. He liked to use the song Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom by the Vengaboys during class. I don't recall whether he brought it himself or if it was on a mix someone made for him, but either way, we thought it was a really hilarious song. The shameful part of this story is that I wrote a 58 songfic to it. Which will never, EVER see the light of day. It was just really, really bad XD;;;
I love cookies~ They're my favorite thing to bake, a fact that I realized around the same time as all the other stuff in this post was going on. My mom didn't like having so many cookies around, though, so I ended up bringing them to Kit's family sometimes. I ended up starting a cookie business the summer after ninth grade, and I did it for three summers, with varying levels of success. If you ever want me to bake you some cookies (while I'm at home, not while I'm at school), feel free to ask...although I might say no! I really want to bake some hamentashen this spring, but my lack of cookie sheets is problematic...
Well. I hope you enjoyed that look into my embarrassing past?
