What did you do last night?

Put money into my retirement account (bought a lotto ticket) LOL

What do you usually eat for breakfast?

Whatever will hold still in front of me long enough LOL

How many hours a night do you sleep?

Usually toss and turn for a few, sleep for a few, wake up and just lay there for a few……so I guess I don’t really know.

What is your favorite hour of the day/night and why is it your favorite?

Any time that it is not 100 freaking degrees is my favorite time!!

Where do you live now?

Still here in good ol Bakersfield!! Near the valley plaza on a sweet little street called Cecil brunner.

Why did you move there?

Didn’t have to move, my life just kind of rolled in this direction!!

Do you like living there? Explain. 

Are you kidding?! I am such a tight-wad I would never be able to live anywhere else! So basically, yes, I like living here.

What did you do in the years right after high school? 

Went to college, had a degree in my hot little hands by 89, had 3 cute little babies by 91.

Tell us about your family? Kids? Spouses? Lovers? Partners? Divorces?

3-1-nunya-nunya-nunyet

Do you have a job outside of your home?

Currently I  stay at home taking care of my aunt Nancy who has MS and I run a successful ebay store. So no-leavy-the-housy hee hee hee. 

Do you like your job?

Its not full-filling per-se, but it is what it is and I am quite content. 

Is it the job you thought you would have when you were back in High School and you contemplated the future?

No way!! I don’t believe that I ever thought about my future in high school! I thought a lot about who I wanted to marry but that is about as far as my imagination took me!!

If you could have any job in the world what would it be?

Donald Trumps lovely assistant LOL

What was your happiest day last year?

The day we found the perfect medication for my aunt,  ahhhhhh that’s good stuff! LOL

What is your biggest regret from the last 20 years?

I don’t really have any that I would like to share with the class!! I am pretty great, I have great kids, my husband is a hunk, my life seems to be swimming along just fine. If anything, I regret that it went by so fast and I didn’t take the time to savor the moments!!

Do you miss high school? What things do you miss about it?

No, hated it then, Im sure I would hate it now… I do however miss my friends

What is one of your favorite memories from high school? 

Hangin’ out by the water tower. Those were the days……..

What is one of your worst memories from high school?

Being chased down by the PE teacher for trying to leave 5 seconds before the bell rang OMG was she anal or what?! Oh no, or was it starting my period in my white pants! Oh wait, there was the time that I got punched out by some giant black guy! Ouch that really did hurt!!  I think I had a black eye the rest of the school year!!

Who were your best friends in high school? 

I loved everyone! I still do! If you even said hello to me in high school you were indelibly marked in my brain as a friend! I am still that way. My very best friends in high school went to Highland though.

Have you kept in touch with them?

Yes.

How is your life different than the life you thought you would have after high school? 

In high school you have dreams that life is all sparkly, Uhhh its not.

Who was your favorite teacher?

Mr Ross, with Mr. Slagle pulling in a close second!!

What was the biggest life lesson you learned in high school?

Can you really learn life lessons in high school? As a teenager you have delusions of grandeur, you think you are the only one on the planet that matters. You don’t learn any life lessons until you are old enough and mature enough to recognize that-that is what they are!!

Who was your favorite pop music band in high school?

Holy crap, I can’t remember what pop music is? I can tell you who my favorite bands were. The Eagles, Pat Benatar, Quarterflash, Journey. That is just a few

Why do you want to attend a high school reunion?

Wait a minute here, I am WAY to fat to be seen by other people!!

Why do you NOT want to attend a high school reunion?

See above.

Do you like answering these questions?

Gives me something to do.

Do you have any tattoos? What are they?

No.

What is your favorite food?

I love everything, I’m not picky.

Are your parents still alive? How are they doing?

Yes, still live on Chelsea St, my mom just got her first job, my dad is hanging in there.

Are you happy with the way you look these days? Please explain.

I could stand to lose a few hundred pounds but aside from that I look great!!

If you won the lottery what would you do with the money?

Spend it.

Are you religious? Spiritual? Agnostic? Is there a God?

Religious thank you. Evidence that there is a god is all around you. You can’t see the wind but you can see evidence that there is wind (blowing leaves etc.). To not believe that god exists is folly.

What do you watch on TV?

Desperate housewives, Rachel Ray, Food 911, Biggest Loser, Documentaries, Mir cat manor. Things like that. (p.s. Desperate Housewives is my dirty little secret)

What are your all-time favorite movies?

Dragon.  Star Trek ( all of them). Disney and Pixar movies are always faves.

In what ways have you changed the most from high school?

Hmmm. I am not controlled by my hormones any more, that’s good. Aside from that you would have to tell me how I have changed because I don’t see a difference, I am still me.

In what ways are you the same from high school?

I still do whatever I want to do, still try to buck the system. Not entirely a good quality….

Tell us about three of your happiest experiences since leaving high school.

They can be defined easily; Maegan, Madeline, and Danny.

What do you like most about yourself?

I will give someone the shirt off of my back if they ask. I am really good in crisis situations. I am super nice 99% of the time, the other 1% takes into account PMS

What would you most like to change?

I like for things to be the same all of the time, change is very disconcerting for me.

Do you talk on your cellphone while driving?

I don’t even own a cell phone. When I leave the house, I like to LEAVE the house, although I would take the bathroom with me if I could!!

Tell us something that very few people know about you.

If very few people know something about me, then why don’t we keep it that way….

Did you enjoy answering these questions?

I suppose.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that wasn't covered in the above questions.
