Brrrrr

Why couldn't I have been born in a Mediterranean country? I would've been so much warmer!

Anyway, it's time for another meme - this one I got from chantal87

Firsts

First best friend: Reinier v/d B. We were the same age and lived next door to each other for the first 11 years of our lives. In later life, our parents always liked to tease us that we were in the habit of sharing baths and showers when we were children, making me his first naked woman and him, my first naked man.

First real memory of something: sitting on the bare concrete of a floor in a pool of sunlight, being handed a sandwich by my father who's wearing overalls and brown shoes with plaster on them. He's doing up the house we moved into when I was a year and a half old.

First real kiss: Robbie O. I was 8 years old. He was 7 and kissed me under the slide. We "went together" all summer. We were great football friends. He moved away that autumn, leaving me inconsolable. But if you want to know about the first real kiss with tongues: Peter E., when I was 15 and he, barely a year older. I kinda was grossed out about it...but I kept trying to get it right!

First Job: Again, age 15, at a supermarket. My first pay went into the procurement of a pair of red and pointy high-heeled boots, a red-and-ochre wraparound skirt, and an ochre blouse. In which the next week, I snagged my first 'grown-up' boyfriend, Dave O'B.

First screen name: Would you believe it, I first came on the Internet using my real name? I was such an innocent then! Until someone stole my ID and caused me real grief, and I came up with Gamiila.

First self purchased album: - The year was 1975. The album was Beggar's Banquet by The Rolling Stones. A few months later, I bought Queen's A Night At The Opera. I've got both these albums on CD now.

First funeral: My maternal grandmother's, when I was 4. I don't remember it, though.

First pets: An Alsatian named Harro. I loved him, but I really wanted a cat. Later, a Guinea pig called Caesar. I loved him too, but I really wanted a cat. And a fluffy white bunny rabbit answering to the name Conejo. She was very dear to me, but I still really wanted a cat. Finally, after 8 years of nagging my parents about it, and them trying for all that time to distract me with Guinea pigs, rabbits and turtles and birds, I was given my first cat, who was all I ever wanted. His name was Emil.

First piercing/tattoo: I had my ears pierced when I was 16. My father wouldn't speak to me for days.

First credit card: Mastercard.

First true love: - Matthieu B. We were together for 6 years. I broke his heart, but he's gotten over it and now he's married, with a 1-year old daughter. Liar! He swore at the time that if he ever had a daughter, he'd name her after me...but the poor kid's having to make do with Anne.

First enemy: - Tamara Winkler. I met her again by accident last year - still couldn't stand her.

First big trip: - 1974, into Yugoslavia and Rumania with my parents and sister.

First play/musical/performance: I don't remember the 1st play I saw, but the first opera was 'Il Pomodoro' in secondary school. I attended my first pop concert in 1976 (Queen), and the first musical I ever actually went to see was 'Chicago', with Claire Sweeney and Alison Moyet, only a few years ago.

First musician you remember hearing in your house: Kyu Sakamoto.
