Block Rockin Beats

Blame Veronica on this one:

The rules of the game are posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them each a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

10 years ago
During my incredible 12 years of public schools, 1998 was the year I peaked triumphantly. One time in school during a fascinating three-day slideshow of Utah’s fault lines my friend and I decided that we would swap a few of the teacher’s slides with some of the slides my mother had laying around the house featuring the voluptuous young women in our ward at a swimming activity. It would appear that our teacher, Mr. Fagg (seriously), had a secret slide collection of very underage girls in swimwear. When he came to our scandalous slides all the bewildered Mr. Fagg said was, “Looks like we’ve got some bathing beauties in here somehow…” as the class erupted into laughter. VICTORY!!! Word of the prank traveled quickly around the 9th graders of Wasatch Junior High and I was a star.

Remember in A Christmas Story where Ralphy is day dreaming about his glorious Christmas theme paper and all his classmates lift him on their shoulders like a war hero? Well that was pretty much my life for the remaining two days of that week. Believe me, I gave a lot of hi-fives.

Other notable events of 1998 include getting aggressive, hitting puberty hard, turning 15, and playing Farmer Ted alongside Molly Ringwald in the hit teen-comedy, Sixteen Candles.
