Don't Hate Me...

But I have to next to nothing to get ready for Turkey Day. For the second year in a row only my SIL and her hubby are joining us. It's like one big kids table, no grown ups. Okay, so technically we are grown-ups but things are so much more laid back when it's just us "kids".

Oh, but still there is all that cleaning for company you say. Um, sorry, nope. My SIL is not one I have to keep up any facade of being a decent housekeeper for. I'll vacuum and mop tomorrow night, that is all. Okay, but what about all that food prep you ask. Hubby is the cook around here. He fries our turkey the day of and makes nearly everything the night before. And you know what? He ENJOYS cooking. Now the mess he makes is not fun to clean up, but hey, it's a small price for me to pay and I have the help of SIL.

So you know what I am doing today? Finding old friends on facebook. And cursing some of them for not being on their computers 24/7 like me and not responding immediately. Oh, all of them except my first huge crush. According to my mother I was always boy crazy. But Scott is the first boy I remember stalking. He was a year older and played guitar. At some point he actually talked to me. I suppose thats what makes the memory of him so much clearer than any others. He became that friend that I always secretly hoped would be more. Anyway, he im'd me this morning to say hi after 20 some years. How fun is that? Facebook rocks!

Of course I had to go find pictures of us from way back when. Look at the size of my smile, can you tell I was kinda excited to just be near him?


He referred to the time when we were friends as the Air Supply time of our lives. What a perfect description. Because I am fairly certain if I had a soundtrack for the picture of us slow dancing at my 14th birthday party this is what was playing.



Good luck getting that song out of your head. Remember the title, don't hate!

I can see why you crushed on him - he was a cutie!
No hating here for easy Thanksgiving prep at your house! I had many years of taking it easy and it was GREAT!

I might be moving to facebook. We have had more than enough drama on myspace and the hubs already put in a request to cancel his subscription.

I did not click on that video and you can't make me!

You were definitely rocking the Kristy McNichol hair--both of you were!

Jenn too true! I posted the same photo on my facebook and a friend commented on loving the feathered hair, and I had to ask, mine or his?!
Raven, I can't make you, but you know you want to. And if you switch to facebook, find me woman!

I had a similar first crush but it was in jr. high (I was 7th grade he was 9th). And we both looked like something right out of Little Darlings. He ruined it for me the day he walked up to me in the cafeteria and I as all excited and then I could tell he was gonna kiss me and then he shoved his tongue in my mouth and started mackin' on my face. I spent the remainder of the year trying to avoid him.

(and hopefully that image will make up for sticking that Air Supply song in my head)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Tootsie I was in 8th he was in 9th grade in that photo. He was one of those guys in a band everyone thought was too cool, but he was really just a nice guy. I remember he kissed me on the cheek after we slow danced, to make my birthday special. Really what 15 year old boy would do that? But he did. Later I knew it was never more than friends for him, but back then I kept on dreaming.
Your story is not near as sugary sweet, but sure did make me laugh!
I think we can call a truce on the stuck in my head games now!
