30. Reflection Post: What did you think of this challenge? OR A Random Thought Post

I thought this was an absolutely awesome challenge!  I am not good at asking people questions.  Not because I’m not curious, but because I never know what to ask.  These were great questions, and fun ones to answer.  Great work, McClendon Villa!

29. Were you into Star Wars or were you a Trekkie? Both or neither?

I never saw a Star Wars movie until the third one came out, which was really episode 6 apparently.  So I never got into that whole thing. 

I was about 5 when I saw my first Star Trek episode.  My parents were still married, so all of us were living in the same house.  My sister, who was older, wanted to watch Star Trek.  I wanted to watch Mr. Rogers.  We fought.  My mother decided in my sister’s favor.  That episode was the one with the rock monster and Abraham Lincoln.  I was mesmerized, and have been a Trekker ever since.

28. When did you go on your first date? What did you do? Where did you go? Did you go out on another date with that person?

I was a much-too-young fourteen.  I honestly don’t remember what we did.  It was a neighbor boy, he was eighteen.

27. What do you remember the most from the year that you turned 19? What was going on in your life back then?

The year I turned 19 … personally, a year with a lot of teen angst in it, dating, you know.  On a larger scale, let’s see … (asking Google what happened back then because I was too wrapped up in my own life to remember exactly what happened that year …) a Korean air liner was shot down by a Soviet fighter jet.  I do remember that.  Sally Ride was the first female astronaut, on the Challenger’s first voyage, I remember that, too.  And an explosion at a Beirut nightclub killed 237 US Marines.  Oh boy, I do remember that.

26. What is something about your younger years that you absolutely would not change or trade for anything?

I really can’t think of anything I wouldn’t change.  I’ll have to go with being born American and a girl.  Those, I’d keep.

I would probably change just about everything.

24. Is there another song that makes you reminiscent of your teenage years?

Hmm.  Music was such a big part of my teen years, it’s so hard to pick a single song that would capture those memories for me.  Journey was huge, REO Speedwagon was also, Led Zeppelin was big still and there was a lot of radio play because their drummer had recently passed away, as had the lead singer for AD/DC.  Foreigner, ELO, Queen, these bands were big during my teen years so pretty much anything by any of them is going to cause me to time-travel back to that era.

23. How old were you when you bought your first car? What kind of car did you get? Do you still have it?

Hahaha!  Oh goodness, my first car!  A ‘71 Plymouth Duster that was probably more Bond-o than metal.  It even came with an 8-track!  I was 19 when I got it, and it was an old car by that time.  Still, it got me where I wanted … most of the time, when the carburetor wasn’t acting up.  No, I don’t still have it, I got rid of it when I got married.  Wish I did though!  It was kind of a fun car!
