#12 What are the songs that have particular meaning in your life? AND - what is that meaning? What's the story behind the song?

There are TONS of songs that have special meaning for me, I'm very big on the music. I'll just pick three.

H. ~ Tool

Tool is my favorite band, and H. is my favorite Tool song. It brings me back to high school every time, and watching MTV with Stefanie, and badly chosen boyfriends and the sun at the Gorge. And since it's continued to be a special song for me forever I guess it also has new associations, but mostly it's just being 14 and all the craziness that comes with it.

Where We Would Be ~ Porcupine Tree

This song has special meaning in part because of the lyrics. Basically it's about how things don't turn out the way you think they're going to.

"Strange how you never become
The person you see when you're young

405 ~ Death Cab for Cutie

This one is more recent - it reminds me of Seattle when I'm far away here on the east coast.

#13 This week, I want you to write about your high school prom. Pictures get you bonus points ;-). Where was it? What did you wear? Was it everything you thought it would be and more?

Prom was sort of a given for me since at the time I had been with my boyfriend for 2 1/2 years, so there aren't any stories about worrying about getting asked or wondering who to go with.

It was in the Arctic Building Dome Room (I think that's what it was called.) Beforehand we went to dinner at Piecora's Pizza with one other couple, then went to dessert at this fancy place that was pretty rude to us. I wore my crazy Ever After dress with wings.

It wasn't all that I thought it would be and more. I had consulted with Robb about the dress and wings quite a few times before I even started to have it made and he said it would be fine with him, but when the time actually came he was weird about it. Of course he knew better than to ask me not to wear it when it came to it, but he wasn't happy about it and it caused a bit of conflict. He ended up refusing to dance with me - although I don't really dance so that wasn't a huge issue - and dancing with a girl from choir instead.

However, I was really happy with the dress and overall I guess it was a pretty fun night.

Write about one of (or some of!) the things you did wrong when you were a kid.

I'd like to think I was a pretty good kid, but here are a couple things I can think of:

When I was really little - I think about one - I locked myself in the bathroom alone with the water running. Of course I don't remember this, but my mom told me. She called my dad at work and he told her to get an ax and chop the door down. :) Luckily I managed to open it before that was necessary.

When I was about 6 or 7 I was camping with my dad and sister on Whidbey Island. Gina and I decided to sleep in the tent by ourselves while my dad slept in the car. We giggled until it was pretty late and the flashlight went dead. Then we went to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night and Gina wasn't there! And I didn't have a flashlight! I went out to the campsite where there were a few embers left on the fire. My dad always told us not to touch the fire, but it was dark and I was scared so I threw a small stick on. Then I got worried that I would get in trouble so I threw water on it. I went and knocked on the car window and my dad let me in. For years afterwards I wouldn't go camping on Whidbey Island because I was afraid that my dad would somehow find out about the stick I threw on the fire (years later? I guess through forensic evidence ;) ) and that I would get in trouble.
