Virtual GNO - Dear Diary

I don't know what's going on with me lately but I've been reminiscing. Maybe it's the Back-to-School season, maybe my Gingko Biloba is finally kicking in and my memory is improving, I don't know. What I do know is that I'm in the mood for a Virtual Girls Night Out!

Time To Jump!

R.E.M. "Radio Free Europe"


Soundtrack of my life. Ah... good times


Time For A Cocktail!

My first legal drink was a Tequila Sunrise. I thought I was so fancy!

Tequila Sunrise
Ingredients:
2 ounces gold tequila
4 ounces fresh orange juice
3/4 ounce grenadine
Directions:
Place ice in glass so it is half full. Add tequila followed by the fresh orange juice. Put a spoon into the glass. Add the grenadine quickly, allowing it run down the back side of the spoon so it sinks to the bottom of the liquid.
Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.

I remember Madonna ordering this in Desperately Seeking Susan and I knew that would be what I ordered on my birthday. I was a sucker for Madonna ;->

  8. Well I JUST made it in to the high school years, clearly on the wrong end as we got to see John Travolta at the mall. In reality I got to see Shaun Cassidy, Andy Gibb, and Leif Garrett!!! Ha!! What a hoot!

    Ok, glad to be back to VGNO. It's been a busy, busy summer.

  10. Happy VGNO!! I fell at the end of the diary. I should have had Jennifer as a friend but those few months of 88 made Claire my BFF!!

  11. So funny! Sorry I didn't make it around to last week's blogs, that camping with just the kids & my parents really took it out of me!!!

    Here's me...My best friend Claire & I went shopping for neon leggings....and we saw Tom Cruise, oh ya!!

    Class of 88 all the way! :)

  12. What a fun game! OK...I entered high school in 1983 so my diary entry is the same as yours. Still, I think that I was more of the neon leggings wearing, food court hanging, Tom Cruise crushing girl. :) I too liked all things Madonna and especially loved that movie "Desperately Seeking Susan"...maybe because MY NAME IS SUSAN! :) Now that's a name that doesn't match my generation at all! I think my mom was a decade or two late. Oh well! Happy Virtual Girls' Night Out!!!

    PS I wrote a post about memory loss--if your Gingko Biloba doesn't work, maybe you have "Momnesia"! An author of a book (same title) actually linked to my post through her site and drew a cartoon of #17 on my list of symptoms! Very cute if you have time to check it out, please do!

    http://secretsofasuburbansoccermom.blogspot.com/2009/08/i-have-momnesia-how-about-you.html

    That's the link to the post...her cartoon is included two posts up from that one. OK Ann...this is officially the longest comment EVER!!! :)
