I know all the other top blogs did their lists a few days ago but I was too busy reading them and then sloooowly getting the idea to do one: Horrible Memories 2008!!!!!!!!! Why does it feel sort of awesome to remember what an idiot you were? Maybe it's because you think that that if you admit it, you will never do anything like it again...how foolish of you (me).
-Spraining my ankle at a concert while trying to relive my teen years and dancing with the youth. Accusing someone of maliciously pushing me and verbally abusing her though I new secretly that I had fallen on my own and was only trying to pawn off my shame.
-Telling an attractive worker at a vintage store that I was "up all night" and because a lack of nuance in my choice of French words, accidentally implying that I was up all night DOING it. He subseequently making a disgusted face. (I was actually trying to say that I had had insomnia because I had seen a movie about terrorists and it was scawy!)
-Going home with someone really embarassing, drunkenly waving goodbye to everyone I know and calling attention to myself, living in shame forever. (Not to be confused with similar 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 memories)
-Writing ex-boyfriend a "birthday" e-card saying I was lonely and that, while I was happy that he had found himself a new girlfriend, feared I would be alone forever. Possibly including a winky smiley in said e-card ;)
-Dating two boys at once. Not being called by two boys at once.
-Going on a date with someone too good looking for me so then telling several non-stories, the conclusion of which were that people thought I was hot (to TRICK him)...then getting called out on it: "wow you keep mentioning how attractive you are".
-All other memories carrying over from as early as the mid 80s that continue do haunt me (I'm looking at you, camouflage phase)
-Doing too many alcohols and drugs. Getting locked out of the house. Attempting to sleep outside because too lazy to get keys from a friend's house. Crying. Getting the idea to sneak the neighbours ladder to climb into my window. Breaking his fence. Getting caught. Getting sued. Fleeing the country!!!! Wahahahah!!! Wait that's a WINNER memory!!!!!!!!!!
WINNER IN '09!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
