Sunday Stealing: The Twenty Firsts Meme

This meme brought to you by:

First Job: The first paid gig I had was babysitting. The first job where I got taxes taken out was when I worked for a greenhouse.

First Real Job: I guess the first real job would be the one where you got health benefits and what-not so that'd have to be when I started working at a bank.

First Favorite Politician: I really don't like politics because of all the negativity but I did start paying attention to them when Bush was on his way out the door and Obama was coming in so I guess my first favorite politician is Obama.

First Car: A burgundy Bonneville that required frequent stops so that I could put water and antifreeze in to stop it from overheating and you had to literally kick the gas pedal if the car hadn't been run in a couple hours cuz' it would stick. Lovely! I've had new cars ever since then.

First Record/CD: For some reason, I really didn't want to move on from tapes to CD's so the first CD I ever got was Nimrod by Green Day.

First Sport Played: basketball

First Concert: MXPX I was pretty much in love with their stuff and they played locally a lot. Go punk rawk!

First Foreign Country Visited: I've never visited a foreign country. Someday though.

First Favorite TV Show: MacGyver I was so in love with Richard Dean Anderson. Still kinda' am. : ) I swear that man knows the secret to the fountain of youth.

First Favorite Actor: See above.

First Favorite Actress: I don't remember really being impressed with a female actress until recently. I'd have to go with a tie between Amanda Tapping and Rachel Luttrell from the Stargate series.

First Girlfriend/Boyfriend: The first "real" one was Fred.

First Encounter with a Famous Person: I've never met a celebrity but I met one of our news people one time. Does that count?

First Brush With Death: Probably the accident that happened when a guy ran a red light and hit the side of my car. My car got spun around a couple times and I ended up facing the wrong way on the street.

First House/Condo Owned: The one I live in now. Bought it a year ago.

First Film Seen: An American Tail is the first one I remember.

First Favorite Recording Artist: TLC

First Favorite Radio Station: WSNX formerly known as Sunny FM. They were mostly pop and R&B. I've gone through many different musical tastes. Now, I like anything but country and jazz.

First Book I Remember Reading: Probably those silly Dick and Jane books.

Your first car reminded me of one of my oldies. I had to run the heater so it wouldn't overheat and before I could start it I often had to take a bat to the gas tank from underneath the car so it would get the fuel in. Needless to say this was a car that I didn't keep for long. :) Enjoyed your answers. Have a great week!

Kalea - You had to take a bat to the gas tank? Wow!
