Some People Never Grow Up!

That's what my husband said when I told him we were sharing first kiss stories.

I said, THANK GOODNESS! (then poked him in the eye).

I know it would be more mature to blog about the first black president taking office tomorrow, but I'd rather be sharing TMI with you guys.

Is that so wrong?

That's why I am officially deeming this week SPNGU (Some People Never Grow Up) week!

(Which is code for, let's be like Stupid Smart girl and clean out our closets--love that anaology--right here in FRONT of each other. )

Seriously, how can we have a road trip without TMI? It's part of the initiation into the shaka sistah-hood.

There were so many fun first kiss stories in my comment box yesterday. If you didn't share yours, FEEL FREE to drop it off tonight.

OR . . . post it on your own blog and drop the link in my comment box. I will link to it on my blog and then we will all come over to your place and laugh ourselves silly before we shake our heads and say, Some people never grow up!

Here's our first link from Lo, our lovely Southern Belle.

Click here to read about how a super hot French guy tried to kiss her and then told her to meet him in Paris.

And here's the photographic evidence:

Unfortunately Lo did not take the opportunity granted her to kiss and then meet this French dude in Paris, much to her ma's chagrin.

Sooooo, LO, THIS is your LUCKY Road trip! After we pick up Blogging Mama in Germany we will be making a stop in France to find your French dude.

The universe has spoken!

And then Alyson from New England comes forth with a story about her own smoldering French dude. It was much hotter then Lo's story as she had to use Kung Fun on her French dude to keep his wandering hands at bay.

More photographic evidence coming your way:

Ooh-la-la! Can someone say _ _ _ _ _ _ tension!

Upon careful examination of the two photographs you will clearly see that both Alyson and Lo shared the SAME smokin' hot French dude!

The double-crossin' French!

So, then Sandi tries to get in on the action with a boring story about a boring guy named Tony who kissed her at a gas station in broad daylight.


But Anjeny thought it was the funniest story in the history of the world.


Then April jumps in and tries to top French dude with a Latino dude, because everyone knows Latino dudes are more rico and more suave than two-timing French dudes.

Photographic evidence STAT:

Okay, this is Latino dude 34 years later. Imagine him with hair and acne and that's what he looked like when he was rico and suave. (He's still PRETTY DARN rico and suave, even without the acne.)

Okay, so who wants to see MY first kiss? Huh? Huh? Huh?

Okay, everyone gather around. Close your eyes until I say open.


Okay . . . OPEN!

This is Brigham. And me. Way after we had fallen out of TLA.

This photo was taken after his mission. He asked me out one last time while my now-husband was on his mission, but I was truly/madly/deeply in love with my now-husband so it didn't go anywhere.

Brigham was my best friend's brother and part of our neighborhood brat pack when I was 13 years old. He was two years older and ten inches taller than me.

One night he snuck in my bedroom window.

Imagine me laid out casket-style with the covers pulled up to my neck, stiff as a board and goody goody as a gum drop.

"I've come to kiss you like no one has kissed you before," he declared.

"No one HAS kissed me before," I said.

"The better to kiss you like no one has kissed you before my dear."

(Okay I made all of that up for dramatic effect. I don't remember what he said. I just remember what I said.)

"You'll have to wait until I'm 16!"

That's what I said.

A few months later he moved to Weiser, Idaho. Before he left he pulled me aside and said, "I'm going to kiss you now like no one has ever kissed you before." (I don't remember if he said this either.)

"You'll have to wait until I'm 16!"

That's what I said.

A few months later my brothers and I made a trip to Weiser, Idaho to spend Thanksgiving. We went to a dance and I fell in love with Brigham to Christopher Cross' Sailing. It was my first slow dance. (Just added it to the BAA soundtrack.)

Before I left he pulled me aside and said, "NOW can I kiss you like no one's ever kissed you before?" (I know he did say NOW but I filled in the rest).

"I TOLD YOU, you'll have to wait until I'm 16!"

That's what I said. (I was annoying like that.)

Then he started writing me letters that said, I love you, I love you, I love you.

And he sent a photo that said, "You're a sweet, good lookin girl who I'll never forget."

(That was a lie, of course, he forgot about me years ago. But I fell for it GOOD AND HARD.)

Even though he turned out to be a player and made me miserable with love, I loved him with all the fourteen-year-old-fierceness I could muster.

Okay, now for the kissing part, which is why you're here, right?

Brigham and his sister came to P.R.O.V.O. for New Years Eve. He read my palm and then held my hand. He was sneaky that way.

Then he looked in my eyes--I looked away, of course, because I couldn't handle intimacy until I was thirty somethin--and while I was looking away he leaned in and kissed me with a grin.

Here's what I said about it in my journal:

It was a short kiss. I can't remember it too good. I think I missed his mouth. I'm not sure. I don't even know if he thinks I'm a good kisser.

(As you can see I've always been very articulate and poetic in love.)

Sadly, I was totally over him by Valentines Day.

And that was that.

Now for the TMI part

I also said this in my journal:

Maybe we ought to get engaged and then if we're still in love in ten years, we'll get married. Ten years ain't that long.

It's true. I actually wrote the word ain't and I wasn't joking.

And guess what else? Not only did I say the words neat and special far too frequently, I also said the word Pooh a lot!

Serves me right, I suppose, for publicaly judging my daughter for saying it.

P.S. Hey we have our official photographers for the Road Trip! New England Aly will hang out the van window and capture America as we jog by, and SHELLE @ Plush Moments will capture all of you jogging and cycling in your little shorts. She'll also do all the road trip choreography. She's cool as helk that way! And a tamn good photographer. I'll give everyone who follows her photog blog a hymn book. (Don't think I won't check.)

Kristina P. said...

So, what does P.R.O.V.O stand for?

And does it count if my first kiss was when I was 6?

Kristina P. said...

Oh, and I'm back to having no life, and playing Mahjong while watching CSI: Miami, and blogstalking. I might be a crazy multi-tasker.

April said...

WOW!!! My first kiss wasn't as romantic as yours!! I just wanted a kiss already!!!

I love all the pics!!! hehehehe!!!

April said...

I'm married and I still can't have a kiss!!! SERENITY NOW!!!!


The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh Kristina, P.R.O.V.O stands for (Provo). shhhhh

April, this is rude isn't it . . . that we're talking about kissing when you're radio active.


April said...

And I can only hold hands for 15 minutes at a time....sigh....I feel like I'm dating all over again. (shiver)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Kristina P. If you always comment first then you miss the party, girlfriend.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

You were so adorable with that playa, Crash! Ahhh...loved that you tried to wait. So stinkin' cute!

Of course there is tension in my photo! My dad was taking the picture and my mom was in the picture. I felt weird. I kissed for the first time the night before. Awkward! Then, as we walked around Great America (where the photo was taken, Heidi will now that reference, by the way), he kept trying to get more kissin' action. So NOT into PDA, especially when I was such a newbie.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I meant to say that Heidi will "get that reference", not "now that reference". Huh? Doesn't make sense.

April said...'ve been too busy with awards....your head is spinning....either that or thrown off by remembering PDA!! LOL!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I know, April! When I started remembering how I felt that day, all nervous and dry-throated, I couldn't concentrate on my comment!

Your Latin lover is awesome, April!

April said...

thank you! his whole family is awesome! his older brother took me out for my 16th kissing involved!

Funny Farmer said...

Wowie that Brigham boy had Balooo eyes, dint he?

Anjeny said...

Aw shuck Crash, I thought I deleted my comment way before you had a chance to read it but it's true, I literally laughed out loud at like 1 o'clock in the morning when I read Sandi's first kiss. I don't know why that striked me as funny, maybe it's the way she wrote it.
That is so cute that first kiss of yours. I did write about my first kiss last night but your WV was so creepy I had to delete it esp. since my first kiss happened to be one of older brothers' friends that I kinda grew up with, sorta, and of course, I thought he was the "wow" kisser til I met my hubby and kissed for the first time and hot hook line and sinker.
LO, Alyson and guys are soooo gorgeous, no wonder those guys couldn't help themselves when it comes to kissing.
Hi April, how's the glowing coming? I think it's cute that you and the hubby are back to the holding hands, that is really romantic.
Sandi, please come back and tell us the gory detail of ur first kiss...I think I'm wired wrong or something because I actually want to hear more about it.

val of the south said...

My WV is singon - this really is the best wv ever!

I'm so jealous of all the first kiss stories. I seriously can't remember my first sad is that? Ok, get your mind out of the gutter - it's not that there were bazillions and I can't remember which of the many.

My non first kisses are much more memorable. I had a guy that stalked me for a long time at all the dances and firesides and I finally went out with him a couple times just before he left on his mission - he was one of those "can I kiss you?" and charming me said "um, I don't think so" with tons of teen attitude!! (and that dude is one of my facebook friends!) He even sent me a dozen roses the day he went into the MTC - should have kissed the boy!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hee hee Anjeny. I saw your story. And I thought it was super cute. And reminded me of mine, except you actually did wait and that made yours WOW! But I know what you mean. My first kiss with my husband was WAY more WOWIE! The rockets red glare and all!

Okay, Sandi, let's here the gory details.

Funny, Funny Farmer, because I don't remember his eyes being blue. I thought they were brown. Weird. My husbands are baloooer that that.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh Val, you shoulda kissed that boy! Why were we all such prudes?

Except Alyson and April.

hee hee

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Yeah, Olivier was a shocker, so I loosened up a little after him. Wait...that didn't come out right! I wasn't a "loose woman"!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Anjeny & Crash - I felt the same way about the first kiss with the hubby. Wowza!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha ha Alyson.

Guess what I did today. hee hee

I searched Facebook for Brigham.

I wanted to see if he was fat and bald.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

That's how you KNOW!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

So rest of the Brigham story.

Sad story. There were 17 brothers and sisters. When the youngest was 12 his dad left the family to become a polygamist.

That was during our long distance love.

Then years later I found out from his sister that her dad had abused all of the girls in (inappropriate) ways.

So sad and MAD!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Did you find him?! Did you find him?!

I had no luck finding Olivier on FB because I can't remember his last name. Must look through my old journals!

Barbaloot said...

Oh gosh-my first kiss isn't even worth sharing after hearing about the foxy foreigners and the man/boy who loved you for years.

Let's just say I was 10, stupid and there was a bottle involved.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh no, he wasn't there! ;(

I'll have to dig deeper.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Wo! That Brigham story did not have a happy ending. I empathesize with those girls. Poor things!

So, he was Mormon, but then went off to be a polygamist?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Okay, I really should have said BEST Kiss.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

YEP! weird, huh?

I should try to find my friend, huh?

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Yes, find your friend! And, yes, everyone should tell their best kiss stories.

Barbaloot said...

Oh and no way that's going on my own blog cuz my parents read it and, let's be honest, they don't need to know those things.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hee hee, that's true, Barb. You're not there yet. Wait till your married with teenage children, then you can say anything you want.

Barbaloot said...

For the love of Pete! Are you and Alyson still up commenting? Granted---it's not super late where you live, but c'mon Aly. When do you sleep?

And at least you guys use facebook to find old loves. I'm busy stalking current ones.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I never sleep! If you've seen "The Ring", that last sentence should have creeped you out.

I sleep very little, but I do sleep. Just about to head off.

Barbaloot said...

Yikes-I have seen The Ring. Why do you gotta bring that up right before I go to bed?

April said...

oh my gosh!!! funny story!!! well funny story in a sad setting....the father of an ex past away in Vegas the beginning of the year. So I went to the funeral. I grew up with all of the kids in Canada.

I dated and sent the ex off on his mission. So, I am telling my hubby how this guy was the "it" guy to date up there.

And then he walks in.

Much shorter, balder, and 200 pounds heavier than I remember, but much, much richer.

My hubby looks at me and says, HE was 'it'?

But on the way home I know he was thinking about that day. I got to see all of my long lost friends. And the hubby says to me. "You know, you have given up a lot of rich guys to be with me."

I answered (I will have to edit because I used a bad word...hehehe), "I may live in a helk hole, but I wouldn't give that up for all of the money in the world."

True story.

sara said...

Your first kiss way beats my first kiss with a lovely young man who now prefers to kiss people of his same gender. um, yeah, that's sexy.
I like to think it wasn't me who made him swing that way... but it probably was.
I hope I've improved since then.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Awwww, sweet, April! I think it's also your inner spirit that's making you glow. ;)

Oh, and sorry, Barb! That was kinda mean of me.

Barbaloot said...

Alyson-you're forgiven. Hopefully I dream about (good) first kisses and not scary movies.
April-that's awesome that you had the chance to see your old 'it' guy and tell your husband that you'd pick him again:)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh that is so cute, April. Your hubby is very handsome. And so are your sons.

I just tried to find my friend on FB, but she's not there and neither are any of her brothers.

For some reason I now have this burning desire to find out what happened to all of them.

And guess who I was chatting it up with on FB. Nevadanista. Cool beans.

I mean, coolness! ;)

Sandi said...

Anjeny aren't you just the sweetest thing? I'm so glad that SOMEONE was impressed with my little kissing story! I'm afraid that is all there is to it and there is no more to tell. Just so everyone knows...he was not fat and bald at the time.haha

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Yeah, Barb, just don't answer any phone calls before going to bed. I just hate getting those "7 days" calls before hitting the sack.

Ok, sorry, again, Barb! I'm being mean and scary tonight.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Sara, that's funny. That happened to Funny Farmer's friend too. She wrote about it on yesterday's post.

FUNNY FARMER, your friend is so funny! Thanks for bringing her on board.

Anjeny said...

Yeah Crash, did you find him? Did you did you? LOL
Alyson, good luck finding your frenchdude. I love your first kiss story and french dude on top of that...yowser!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Hey, thanks for the "coolness" shout out!

Only reason you weren't nominated for an award, Crash, is because I knew you were writing this post tonight and thought the gimp might click on your link and he'd read all about my first kiss. True story! hehehe

I'll tell him about this, but didn't want to give him a shock with a click.

But I am giving you an award later. Sorry! Sometimes awards can be annoying, but too bad!

Barbaloot said...

Crash-good luck finding all those people! There's nothing worse than thinking you found them---and then their profile is blocked so you can't tell for sure unless you request them as a friend.

Aly-if I have nightmares tonight I'm blaming you. I'm just gonna have to work extra hard to picture the cute boy with dark curly hair:) Not the creepy white faced girl. Yikes.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Anjeny - I was mad that the only pic I could find was him wearing a cap because he had that floppy hair, skater dude (of the European varity) look that I thought was the pinnacle of hotness.

T said...

maybe he'll join Facebook soon so that we can all look him up?

April - I always tell my hubby the same thing... only I never did date any guys with much in the way of money - I just like to think I COULD have :)

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Barb - sing a hymn. I've heard that's supposed to drive away bad thoughts. ;)

April said...

I think I know who Sandi kissed!!! naaa naaa!!!

Sandi said...

was it an eastie or not an eastie..haha

Sandi said...

This really needs to be a chat room- now that would be F.U.N.

Barbaloot said...

Ooh-April. If you know you gotta share. And including pictures is a nice touch:)

Aly-don't make fun but I fully do that. And guess what? It definitely works. I've never made it past the third verse.

Haynsy said...

On behalf of the men in this world, we like to spend a few minutes telling you about our high moral standards...

And two hours testing them.

You just crack me up, men don't tell stories like this.

Mom would be proud of you.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I think there should be a law passed that everyone must join facebook so that we can find whoever the helk we want, whenever the helk we want to.

I'll leave you with that thought, for I must be off to bed. Very late here.

Oh, and please don't talk about me behind my back after I leave. I don't want to hear any comments about how it looks like I have a stick up my you-know-what in that picture. ;)


Barbaloot said...

I'm following Aly's lead and going to bed. But maybe instead of singing hymns to avoid thinking of The Ring, I'll sing me some JJ-in honor of Crash.

Sandi said...

Don't you guys think that Alyson looks like she has a stick up her you know what?

Alyson (New England Living) said...

So glad it works for you, Barb! I'll have to try it next time.

Hopefully, now, you won't be thinking about that dead teen in the closet with the messed up face or the mangled girl crawling in her freakish way out of the well.

Ok, ok, I'm so sorry!!!!!

April said...

Sorry Barb I don't have access to the hubby's yearbook or I would...dang this 2 year remodel!!!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Ahhh, Sandi!! I caught you!! I hadn't really left yet. You little so-n-so!

Sandi said...

Alyson you are FUNNY.

April said...

Aly- you are too funny! Goodnight! and goodnight Barb!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hahahahahahaha I'm LOLing over here


I can't keep up with all the hilarity. My daughter's wondering what the what?

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Nitey-nite, my lovlies!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Alyson, you actually look really gorgeous, but it looks like FRENCH DUDE has his hand . . .

Sandi said...

April I do believe that I have access to your hubby's yearbook.....

WV=jerkies (no comment)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Jerkies . . . ha hahahahahahahah

Sandi said...

yeah...where is the french dudes hand?

April said...

hehehe....Aly you really crack me up!!!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Crash - hahaha so maybe that's why I have that look! ;)

Ok, ok, I'm going. (or will I?) hehehe

April said...

wow....then you have access to the pic of him in his groovy outfit! YIKERS!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha hahahaha Aly. You're paranoid we're going to talk about you, eh?


The Crash Test Dummy said...

I need the picture in the groovy outfit NOW!

Sandi said...

which groovy outfit would that be...can you give me a year?

April said...

I think Aly is afraid to close her eyes now, but is too afraid to admit it.....The Ring. But I'm not, never seen it! I'll sleep like a baby tonight!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Paranoia, big destroyer!

Now I've got the Kinks running through my head!

Finally got the contacts out of my eyeballs, so no excuse not to get into bed, tamn it!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Poor Kristina P. is totally missing the whole party.

Sandi said...

I wish I had some dirt on Aly....

April said...

1980 BABY!!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Ha ha ha ha ha Aly is still here.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

I can deal with The Ring, though it's taken many years of therapy. Barb, on the other hand, has been fun to freak out. I'm bad.

Sandi said...

Crash, I do wonders for your comment count. I might have actually finally found a talent-hooray for me!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Yea, thanks Sandi. And Aly. And April for using me as a chat room. It makes me PopUlar!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Pathetically, yes I am.


The Crash Test Dummy said...

I just have to say something to Haynsy, who tried to butt into our conversation.

Ha ha. That was funny! You go!

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Is there some kind of detox center you can go to for withdrawls from Crash's comment sections?

Anjeny said...

You know Aly, you really should have just elbowed him...he looked too darn proud of himself or something, almost like he had an inside joke no one else knows. Although he was a hottie.

April said...

The hubby and I are fighting...because I am laughing at him about his polyester suit that Sandi is looking up. He swears it wasn't. I however, worked in a fabric store for 5 years. I can smell polyester from a mile away. He said he got it from Sears. I assured him that Sears sold polyester suits too. He is not amused. heheehhehe!

exharm-do your ex no harm

Alyson (New England Living) said...

He was a hottie and he was arrogant. I think you're right about his own inside joke. He was probably looking at my dad, who was taking the picture and thinking, "oh the things I will do to your daughter". But he didn't! I promise! I was a good that point. ;)

Sandi said...

So April dear, I have the yearbook out. All I see is big glasses, feathered hair and short shorts on the boys basketball team. Where is this groovy outfit?

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Ok, goodbye (or not). I'm leaving (perhaps) and I will check in with you in the morning and make sure you were all good.

April said...

wv= cosing (there will be no cosing up to the hubby tonight after the polyester fight! J/K! It's because I still glow!)

Sandi said...

Aly. I love that you are still here.

Sandi said...

p.s. Crash. Brigham was CUTE- way cuter than my fat bald guy

April said...

Look for the tie with a knot in it the size of his head! Navy blue polyester shirt and pinstriped vest.

Sorry you have to see all those short shorts on guys, that's gross!

April said...

Aly, of course he was arrogant..he's french! DUH!!!

Sandi said...

April, is it his sr. pic or something else? Silly girl, these are in black and white how am I supposed to find a blue shirt?

WV: pineth= all these chicks pineth for their first kiss guys.

Sandi said...

wow. yearbooks are bad bad things.

April said...

Yep, it is his sr pic. I must be thinking of the colored pics I have here.

Sandi said...

well i gotta say that george brunson has drew beat by a mile.

Sandi said...

and once again I am here when the count reaches 100. Proof that I need to get a life! I am following Aly's lead and headed off to bed- surely to dream of fat bald-headed first kisses!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha.

Do you guys want to be alone?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Good night, Sandi.

Good night, Aly.

Good night, April.

Sleep tight. Don't let the glow-worms bite.

April said...

Good night Sandi, Aly, Anjeny, Crash, Kristina, Farmer,Val, Barb, Sara, T, Haynsy, who did I miss? Oh ya, John boy, and all of our first kisses!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha. I'm so glad I have you around to pick up my slack, April.


April said...

ooo la la...wv is derriar! hahaha...french for butt! I love the wv!!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha

Oh April, must you always have the last word. And the last laugh.

Sheesh! Some people never grow up!

hee hee

April said...

No problem Crash! I'll clean up as I leave!

the wv is freakin me out!!

dismst...we are dismissed!

April said...

sorry....didn't mean to get the last word in say something now...

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha ha ha



OFF with YOU!

Before I whip you soundly and plug you into my wall and use you as a night light.


val of the south said...

Good night all y'all!

I spent all my evening reading all the comments and back Crash that I forgot to take all the Christmas music off my mp3 (why I came on the computer in the first place!) oh crap, another night of cool music interspersed with Osmond Family Christmas!

wv: rednen - what happens when you ride your bike along side the cool van and forget your sunscreen.

Heidi Ashworth said...

109 comments!??! What the HELK?!?!? My first kiss wasn't funny. It was perfect and passionate and something to write home about. (and I was only 14)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

G'night Val of the South living la vida Utah.

OOOOh, Miss Heidi, do tell. And don't forget to add all the vocabularic flourishes.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I just want to be comment 113.

I wish Lo was here. Good morning Lo. I'll be asleep when you wake up and read all this.

Anjeny said...

Nite April. Nite Aly. Nite Sandi.
And whoever else is calling it quits.

nevadanista said...

Wow! keeping up on these comments is like a part-time job.

Alyson, your Frenchie was a hottie. You should have slipped him a pack of cloves to smoke before he kissed you...just sayin'

I'll have to come back later. There's too much to comment on :)

But I sure can't believe none of you BYU peeps have mentioned any NCMOs yet.

IWA said...

Now I know why everyone loves your blog....

Playing hard to get... I would have never guessed it from you!

Loved reading about Kissing... my favorite thing to do! LOL!

Kritta22 said...

That's it!!! I'm going to stop reading your blog if you don't stop giving away MY hymn book!!

LOL I kid I kid!


I love that you stood by our standards of waiting until you were sixteen! AWESOME!

Ha ha ha you said pooh! HA HA

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

115 comments. Good Helk Crash! Geez, you all are a bunch of kissing fools!
My story is very pathetic. I didn't date in high school, I was way too wicked shy for it. So my first kiss was in college and honestly I can't remember if it was Seth (the guy who picked me up while my friend and I were driving back to school from CT, and I do mean on the freeway, he was driving and we were driving, there were scribbled notes and lots of near stupidness) or the guy from the other dorm who got me in trouble for underage drinking because I entered his room right before they got busted (I didn't drink anything! and as soon as I saw it I was leaving, don't worry nothing happened to me) or the guy from the frat who I met through my sorority (they made him sing me some sappy song in front the whole cafeteria at dinner - that's what happens when you're pledges!)

Anywho, it was one of those boys, none of which I look back on with any particular fondness....

Kritta22 said...

You want my TMI kiss...well here it goes...

I was being a great thirteen year old, jumping on my trampoline in my backyard. Probably to a radio station. I had dance routines. Be jealous.

Moving on, the BOY screamed the POOH (he he) out of me when he yelled, HEY!

I stopped jumping/dancing and went to see who this boy was that was watching me, so rudely, at my backyard neighbor's house. They were old. No kids.

His name was Evan. He was short and could do a backflip on the ground. My sister liked him so he was off limits.

WELL Evan's front neighbor was Justin. He was seventeen and really tall and did his hair like the New Kids on the Block. Yeah, he was that cool. He even smoked. He stole them from his dad.

One day Justin surprised me and my sister and walked AROUND the street and came to the front yard. He asked if we wanted to go out, that day. (OF COURSE I SAID YES!)

The next few days, weeks we would talk over the fence of my nieghbor's yard. my sister to Evan and me to Justin.

My mom left one time and we had to go inside. Justin walked over and told me to come outside. I soooo didn't want to but I was his GRILFRIEND, what was I suppose to do??

I went outside and we went on the side of the house. He reached down and kissed me. I got butterflies and everything...then my sister started yelling....GET INSIDE..Justin LEAVE!!

Mom had forgotten her purse and came back. She caught Justin on the side of the house.

Justin couldn't be my boyfriend anymore. (I was 13-he 17.) Kassy and I got grounded for two weeks in the MIDDLE of summer!!

(She got grounded cause she went along with the plot.)

Evan and Justin didn't talk to us anymore. My mom scared them.

So there you first kiss.

What the what with all these comments. Pretty soon I will feel like this is Kristina's blog and no one will notice if I don't comment. But then I am glad you guys are all partying like a rock star and keeping April company, so just go ahead. Heidi, do tell. Shall we look for an upcoming post?

Crash good job. How do you do it, day in and day out.

wv: copee, you are all helping me cope with all the zaniness that is this life

Jen said...

Hmmm. My first kiss would definitely take a whole post. Not because it was so long, but because it was such a looooong time coming. If I have time, I'll be back.

Kritta22 said...

Where's Crash? It's only ten in her world!

Kritta22 said...

It's kinda weird that Kristina P starts the comments, and Kritta22 closes the comments with talking to herself.

Bookcased by the K's!

Kritta22 said...

My poor hubby has to go to work at 3:30am....stupid military! Oh well, he'll be home early!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Okay, FIRST Nutty Hamster Chick.

NOOOO, It's not like Kristina P.'s blog. 90 of the comments came from Alyson, Sandi and April and twenty were from me. And seriously, I've been thinking I wonder where Pat is tonight? I always miss my peeps when they don't drop by.

I don't know how I do it, Pat. I just have too much to say, but it may start catching up to me soon and I'll have to slow my pace a bit now that classes are back in full swing.

Your mom is so awesome, Pat. And your sis too. And of course your SIL.

That was fun yesterday.

Okay, Kritta. Funny story. You're so funny. Is Kassy the sis you talked about? Your New Kids even had a New Kids name.

Blogging Mam. Wow. You've got some wild college stories to share. Spill it, girlfriend.

Iwa, YOU wouldn't have thought I'd play hard to get, eh? Well I wouldn't have thought kissing was your favorite thing, so there! Take that.

hee hee

Okay Nevada, I just figured out what NCMO means. ha ha I knew it sounded familiar. Okay, let me just say that after I held out, or tried to hold out, I did have my fair share of NCMO's. Not with Brigham, unfortunately. I was too square when I was 13. I loosened up later. Shhhhhhhhh

Kritta22 said...

I love that you have pictures of Aly!

Do you have any of Shelle?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

hee hee Kritta. You do close the posts by talking to yourself.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

You're a night owl.

Kritta22 said...

Hi Crash! I have missed you!

Kritta22 said...

It's the only time I can read 18 month old is sleeping so is my hubby. I don't feel guilty for the dishes not being done, if I can't see them!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I wish I had pictures of Shelle. We need to get her to send me some of her in the eighties.

hee hee I wonder if she had big brown hair too.

Thanks for missing me. I haven't got your quilt yet. I'm sure it will be soon.

Kritta22 said...

Oh yeah, Kassy is my sister. I only have one.

My family isn't Mormon. That explains the only 2 kids. Ha ha ha!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

It's so cold her lately. It will be nice to have it to snuggle up in.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

How are you doing with everything?

Is it cold there? Do you get down in the winter with the cold weather. I used to when I lived in Utah.

Kritta22 said...

Are you serious? I sent that quilt just after the New year's!!!!

You would think Alaska to hawaii would be fast but I wonder if it goes through Seattle and san Diego. That would take forever!

I'm glad I didn't send you a bird or cat.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha. Me too. Especially glad you didn't send me a cat.

Funny Farmer, you didn't hear that.

Kritta22 said...

I have depression already...taking Prozac so I just up the dose in the winter cuz of the darkness. I don't really think it's cuz of the cold.

I really can't wait to move though. Somewhere I don't have to worry about snow and ice 8 months out of the year.

Kritta22 said...

We move in August from here. I'm counting down the days!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Ah shucks. Sorry bout that. That's tough stuff. It runs in my family too. Living in Hawaii helps me a lot.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I bet. Where will you go then? There's a lot of military in Hawaii.

Kritta22 said...

I'm jealous of those girls. I don't think I ever kissed a non- white American boy...dang it! What was I thinking??! LOL

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I know! I'm trying to think if I have. Hmmmm. It would have been fun to check out a French dude or a Latino.

hee hee

Kritta22 said...

We don't know where we will go. I'm hoping new Mexico so I can visit with Shelle. We find out in April, hopefully.

My whole family has depression too. My dad is an alcoholic. I decided that I would rather take Prozac than Budlight!

Good choice I think. Especially since I can go to the temple with prozac! LOL

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Crash, that was so fun yesterday. One of these days I am going to get to sit at the computer as much as I want. Hopefully soon.

Isn't it sweet that my mom is worried that her health problems are burdening me, and I am worried that my son's problems are burdening her. She feels bad, I feel bad, and I feel bad she feels bad. Vicious circle.

And I guess she was right about the Lord thinking we need more testing, becuase now my MIL, who I love like my mother has breast cancer for the third time. She is having a double masectomy tomorrow, and then we will wait a week to find out the results of that. Holy raining and pouring Batman. But it is more efficient to be able to multitask on the worry and stress department. Might as well have the mother of all nervous breakdown, instead of lots of little small ones, don't cha think?

I am so glad to have all that nice stuff to read over and over agian, so that I can remember it. Thanks for that. I will probably print it out and put it in my self esteem file that I read about having. It is suppose to help you on days when you feel really down.

Kritta22 said...

I'm sorry I'm so lame today! I just read my comments...lame!!

You can punch me with some funny juice! NO CODE RED!! :)

Kritta22 said...

Oh Pat, you break my heart!

I just wanna hug you!

Do we know each other well enough??

Oh heck, get over here! (((HUG))

I heart you Chica!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I'm feeling kinda lame today too. No worries.

NHC--UN freakin Believable. How RUDE to hit you with a triple whammy like that.

But you're right. If it's raining, it might as well be pouring.

I guess. But not if it's pouring cancer.

Someone said today that she thought Carol Burnett could single handedly wipe out cancer and I thought wouldn't it be cool if laughter really could beat the system. That would be AWESOME!

Kritta22 said...

Saying a prayer for your familia tonight. I'll talk to the Big Guy for ya!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh that was sweet.

Here's a ((hug)) from me too.

Group HUG!

I like that self esteem file idea.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh garsh guys! This really is a chat room ain't it.

Kritta22 said...

Yeah what's the self esteem file?? That sounds good!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Kritta, I don't think you are lame.

Do you feel that the Prozac is really great. I have been taking Lexipro for a while but have to chaange for insurance purposes. I wonder about going off of medication, sometimes I wonder if it makes it hard to feel the spirit. What do think?

Kritta22 said...

Of course it's a chat room! What else would it be?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

My bro took it (prozac) for a bit and felt it inhibited his abilitiy to feeeeeeel anything. Feelings, emotions, etc.

Kritta22 said...

I'm a big fan of prozac...I've tried others with no goodness.

First off, do you like lexipro?

Cuz if it works for you, you can fight the insurance company pretty easily, to stay on it.


Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I read about it on some heath and wellness website. What you do is start a file that you can read when you are down. To begin ask 4 of your close friends to write you a letter. Explain to them that you are going through a difficult time and sometimes you can't remember what your good qualities are and could then help you with that. Only ask people you feel safe with and that you think will do it. If they don't do it, then remind them to please help you with this. I havent' actually done it, but I think it sounds like a good idea and so as people write things to me i could add them.

Kritta22 said...

I have stopped taking it before because I didn't think it was doing anything. I still felt down. But then I talked with a good friend and realized that anyone would feel down with what I was going through.

I think I feel the Spirit just fine. I do sometimes have trouble crying. It's not that I don't want to, it's that the tears don't come. I don't know if it's a Krista thing or a Prozac-Krista thing. Like in testimony meetings, everybody is bawling their eyes out, I got nothing. It's not that I'm not touched by what they say, it's just not enough to cry.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Thanks for the hugs.

I think the lexipro helps, but no I would not say that I am happy, so maybe a change would be good. Of course it is hard to know if I have situataional depression on top of my generic variety, what with everything. I have actually thought about changing, but my doctor didn't want to in the middle of all that has been happening.

Kritta22 said...

Wow! That's a great idea...self esteem file. I'll have to think on that. I think everyone needs one of those!


The Crash Test Dummy said...

I like that idea, Pat.

Kritta, I have a friend like that too. I wouldn't be too concerned about it, everyone expresses differently.

Kritta22 said...

Although with the crying thing, if I watch a movie where animals die or get hurt, I'm a blubbering mess.

Eight below...cried the whole time.

Kritta22 said...

If you think you don't want a change your meds right now, call your doctor's office. The nurse will fight it for you. I did it a few thousand times, no joke.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Kritta, that is what I am talking about, I used to be the biggest crier, and now everyone around me crying rivers, me the saraha dessert.

Kritta22 said...

I think it takes years to diagnose depression-depression instead of situational. Both are equally tough.

Kritta22 said...

Do you want to cry? I mean when you hear about the baby that got stuck in the drain, do you want to cry or do you just think it's sad?

I think there's a difference between wanting to cry and actually just being sad.

Like when I fight with my hubby, I get mad and want to cry. I physically have to think about making tears. (Drama I know, but sometimes it works.)

Other times, with animals, I cry just fine.

I wonder if I've just cried soo much over human emotions, I'm just over it.

Kritta22 said...

I think you are one strong chica for going through what you are doing.

Amazing actually!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I don't know if I want to as much as if I feel I am suppose to.

Perhaps it is a defense mechanism, because I have felt all the pain I can stand and am not just an empty vessel.

I do empathize with others so easily and feel what they are feeling and sometimes it is just too much. I can't stand to feel anymore.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I think i meant to say I am an empty vessel.

My counselor says I am doing amazing as well, but I think that look at others who have it so much harder, like kids with lifelong illnesses. They would probably die for a little six month stint like I have had.

Kritta22 said...

No I don't think that at all.

I'm going to get a little preachy so hold on to your britches!

Kritta22 said...

I went to Time Out For Women this year. (If you haven't gone, GO! Seriously the BEST 75 dollars I have spent all 20 years of my life.)

Anyway one of the speakers was talking about our pre-existence.

She believes (and I) that we got to sit down with heavenly Father and go over what we were going to have to do on this earth.

For me it was dealing with an alcoholic father, a sister who is fertile, I'm not, a husband that wants to go inactive... on top of all the little things like my blood disorder and my parent's divorce...

you sat down with Him and said, "Ok. I can handle that. It's going to be tough. I'm going to need Your help but I can do that."

Heavenly Father said, "I know you can. That's why I'm putting you there."

You, "K but you are going to help me?"

Heavenly Father, "Yup, I'll be here and there for you. Remember though, you chose this. You can make it. You are strong enough."

Kritta22 said...

PS I have more than 20 years to my life, but you get what I mean.

Martha said...

It's taken me hours to catch up tonight with all these comments. Geez.

So I have to tell my first kiss episode. My friend Jackie had a party and invited boys. This was the summer in between 6th and 7th grade and I was 12. We played a game that the boy and girl who lost had to go into the closet an kiss.

Andy and I lost and we went into this big closet. He totally scared me to death with his slobery tongue and I ran out of there practically screaming. I thought it was super gross.

Kritta22 said...

Number two preachiness:

Have you read Toss the Guilt by Merilee Boyack?

It is well worth the 14 dollars.

I'm just starting to read it so I can't tell you how wonderful it is but has me already thinking about all the guilt I carry around.

You feel guilty for not crying. I've felt that way before...sunday, actually. But it's OUR emotions. We shouldn't feel guilty about them.

Do you wanna read this book together? We could compare notes?

Not like you have anytime. Just a thought.

Kritta22 said...

Did I scare you off with my soap box Pat?

I hope I didn't!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

therein lies the rub, I don't want to be strong, I am very happy with my weaknesses. Wow you have a lot on your plate. I hate that infertility thing especially with fertility queens around every corner. All 3 of my kids are adopted, so I feel/felt your pain.

You are right Heavenly Father will get me through this just as he has done in the past.

Thanks for listening to me blow off a little bit of steam and frustration and worry.

Big hug in return.

I am addicted to going to Women's Conference every year, and I think it is just like Time out but cheaper.

Kritta22 said...

How about you Crash? Did I scare ou out of your own chatroom?

Dang. I hate it when I do that!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

No, it's beautiful and wise what you're saying.

And funny what Martha said.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Sorry, I'm in and out, trying to work on some class stuff, but soaking up your wisdom.

I totally agree about the pre earth heart to heart.

What blood disorder do you have?

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

You didn't scare me off. Sounds like a good book. I think guilt is a big part of my depression.

Martha that sounds like the movie 13 going on 30, I love that movie.

Kritta22 said...

That's a good point. I'm okay in my weakness too.

But I think the important part is that we are strong ENOUGH. Not mighty woman, not a superhero. Just us. We are good enough, with our little pills and chips on our shoulders, to handle this. (I was talking about my chips, I'm sure you don't have any...sorry to imply!)

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I might have some chips, especially with ranch dip.

True we need to be satisfied with being enough. Enough is as good as a feast, right.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hee hee. Yes, enough is enough (is enough). I better add that song to the playlist.

Hey guys it was so fun to chat. I'll catch up with the rest in the a.m. I've gotta get up at 5:00am.

I'm gonna zonk.


Kritta22 said...

I have ITP....idiopathic (means Don't know why) thrymbensedipenia (I can't spell either but it means no platelets) purpura (means - I forgot)

Anyway I have low platelet levels. Most people have 250K to 600K of platelets running around. I have about 75K on any giving day. When I'm prego, it goes lower.
Before I had my spleen removed, I would have about 25K any given day.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Well it is quite late here and supposedly I am taking a kid to school early in the morning, so I should try and get to sleep.

Thanks for the late night chit chat.

With low platelets you have to worry about whether the nick you got shaving is going to stop bleeding before you go to church in an hour. Or if my platelets go too low, about my brain bleeding out.

nothing major. Except when I'm prego. If my low platelets go into the baby, which they did with Connor, they have to worry about brain damage and other organs just not working.

I think this is why I'm not allowed to have a lot of kids right now. Maybe after the Savior comes....I'm hoping anyway!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

When I posted my comment about going to bed, it posted 3 times and so I deleted, but all of you probably think I spilled my guts about my first kiss. No such sordid thing.

Kritta22 said...

Alright, talking to myself in the comment box!


When I move, you guys are gonna have to find another comment box closer. I can't conduct the songs to no one!!

Seventh verse of .... come on girls...let's get moving!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I think we need to get the comments to 200, we are so close.

let's just post random silliness

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Sorry Kritta I am still here.

99 bottles of milk on the wall 99 bottles of milk, take one down pass it around, 98 bottles of milk on the wall...

WV:hamlit to comment or not to comment that is the question

Kritta22 said...

I always go straight to drama when I see comment removed by author...

like just now, I read it and thought... Someone just came in here to leave a comment about thier kiss, read about my blood all over my legs for church and ran away screaming!

Or posted a comment about how silly ninja Turtles are and then realized it was in the middle of a serious topic and then deleted.

But I guess you send it three times works too...whateva!

Kritta22 said...

I think NHC are new best blog friends.

Even though I was scared of her profile picture until today.

Kritta22 said...

We can totally make it to 200.

I'm weird like that and have to leave a comment box with a even number.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Knock knock

Who's there?


Orange who?

Orange you glad I didn't say repeat?

Kritta22 said...

I wonder if Crash ever found out why she has no readers from Provo. Maybe they don't have their own server thing so they bounce off of other places.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Sorry about my picture, it is scary, but it was totally a joke. I had a poll on my blog asking if I should change it, but most everyone voted that I leave it, because there is something comforting/frightening about it.

Kritta22 said...

You know who didn't show their pretty face over here today...Shelle.

I wonder if she is flying off to some exotic place with palm trees!!

Kritta22 said...

Oh that's right, Crash has palm trees.

We have evergreen trees here. And Birch. Moose like birch trees.
