Carolina over at Brinkbeest in English (I think she does in Dutch, too) was tagged in a meme. There seems to be a lot of that going around. You can see her post here. She also has a really nice photoblog.
She's way too nice and didn't tag anyone else... just asked for volunteers. I figured what the hey, I can answer those questions... and since I wasn't tagged, I don't have to tag anyone else. So here are the questions and responses... played straight:
1. What was your favourite back to school item to buy?
Every year it seemed like I needed a new jacket. I'm not sure if it was buying the jacket or just shopping for it... or maybe it was the one on one time with my mom?
2. What was your favourite subject in school?
That's really easy. It was reading, followed by spelling. I like them because I didn't have to study.
3. Did you ride the bus or get a ride from Mom/Carpool?
I rode my by mostly, except when it rained. Then it was the bus. Mom only drove if the bus was missed on a rainy day.
4. Do you have a sack lunch or cafeteria food?
Sack lunch, except on Wednesdays, when they had hot dogs in the cafeteria. That is after they built the cafeteria. Before that we had to bring lunch.
5. What is your favourite memory from your school days?
The last day of school before summer vacation.
Oh. I guess I forgot to mention that she writes in English English rather than American Englush. Hence the extra letter in favorite.
