September 19-Somethin’ Challenge – September 12-19
This is Suzanne’s challenge at https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/september-19-somethin-challenge/ , and according to her “This challenge is prompted by the song 19-Somethin’ by Mark Wills. You can hear the song here: https://youtu.be/UhSCeItgUEc The following questions are taken from the various lines in the song. There are also a few random questions thrown into the mix to make it a post a day for the month – 30 posts.”
Well, I’m catching up on a week’s worth of posts here ’cause it’s been crazy at work and all I can do when I get home is exercise, make supper, and crash with the kitties. Crazy I tell you!! So, now I can catch up.
We had a big microwave early on. Mom and dad often got the new tech when it came out. I just remember it was big, and nothing got browned when cooked in it. I don’t remember worrying about getting radiation poisoning….
September 13: Did any of the men in your family have big sideburns? What did you think of it then? What do you think of it now, looking back?
Yes. My father. I have a picture somewhere, but I won’t post it ’cause he might not like it…and mom reads my blog. 🙂
September 14: Did you get into any of the toy/game crazes, such as the Rubic’s Cube, Polly Pockets, or Cabbage Patch dolls or anything like that?
Not really, well…I don’t really remember. I had a Rubik’s cube, but I never solved it. Should have cheated.
September 15: Did you get into MTV? If not, what was your favorite music-based TV program?
A bit. For some reason, the one I remember was:
September 16: Who was your favorite TV character? What did you like about them? Who did you like the least?
Hmmm…not sure. I liked the guys in Emergency, and Starsky and Hutch (yeah, I know…) The least? The blond Carrington wife – what was her name? Too goody two-shoes for me. Give me Alexis!
September 17: Do you remember where you were and/or what you were doing when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded? This happened on 28 January 1986. Were there any big events going on in your personal life at the time?
Yes. I came home from university and it was on the news. I just remember being shocked but realizing that this space exploration thing is a dangerous business.
September 18: Did you like to roller skate? Did you go to a skating rink or did you skate on the sidewalk/street at home? If you went to the skating rink, did you spend more time skating or socializing?
I went a few times in the 70s. I was better at it than I was at ice-skating. I could only ice skate if I had boards to crash into to stop. Skating on the Ottawa Rideau Canal was hard, since the only way I could stop was to fall on my butt.
September 19: What was your favorite kind of car when you were young? Did you ever get to have one of your own?
I don’t know. I’ve always been a bit of a 4×4 girl, and had a Pathfinder for many years. I am not a fan of sports cars ’cause they feel a bit like death traps. Someday I’ll have another SUV…
