God, what a dork I was.
    That's actually very touching Paulie.

    Uh Dude, floral velour?

    I have thought about this many times and honestly I wouldn't change a thing.
    I would worry that if I talked myself out of doing something stupid, that it would alter my life to the point where I wouldn't have been working at the place I met my husband! That would totally suck
    If I could go back and talk to myself, but be able to make sure I got myself to where I'd meet him, then I suppose I would

    Ultimately though everything I did made me who I am, and I'm actually happy being me.... I'd like to be a richer me, but still....

    If I could just watch a day I loved I guess I'd just pick a Holiday where the whole family was together. We laugh a lot at holidays when everyone is there

    Not every day, Fluffstress, but I had two that I wore all the time. Kind of button-up cowboy shirts with flowers around the shoulders and, yeah, velour.

    I basically wore whatever my parents bought for me. *shudder*

    Paulie, you're bringing back bad memories, my friend. I completely forgot about these, but I had a few very nasty outfits (also bought by my parents):

    - A beige cord shirt with floral pattern. Yuck.

    - A shirt that was bright yellow on tope, had a narrow dark blue stripe through the middle and white from about the ribs down. Not so bad, right? But it came with matching pants: yellow form the waist to the hips, then the blue stripe, then white. Oh, and it had a drawstring at the waste as well. Could I have been anymore of a dork in 8th grade?

    Only if you were me.

    For good times, I'd go back to any of the "burning the midnight oils" chats my brother and I used to have back when we lived in the same house. We're still great friends, but we haven't burnt the midnight oils in years, and I really miss that.

    I'd also want to go back to the day I left for college, when he and I were bawling and hugging each other in the pre-dawn before I left for Anchorage with Mom and Dad. Until that moment, I didn't know how much he and I meant to each other.

    Note to Self: "Midnight Oils" massage cream would make great Christmas gift for Paulie and his brother.
