Hmm... first love.  I guess I'll skip over first crush, first boyfriend (6th grade, complete with ID bracelet) and high school boyfriend (Kenny).  He was a nice enough guy but I was never in love with him.

No, my first love is David.  Not the David I am with now, but the first David.  David of the blond hair, green eyes and incredible smile that melted me from the first moment I met him.  He was a cousin of a friend of Kenny and I met him when he came home on his first leave from the Navy.  He was so cool, sexy and (seemingly) mature.  I was still dating Kenny but ooo my, David just got to me.  He went back to his ship and I started writing to him because none of the folks back home seemed to know how to put pen to paper.  We started writing as I was finishing my senior year of high school, going to the prom (with Kenny), getting thrown from a horse and breaking 3 ribs and leaving for college.  By the time I moved into my dorm, David's letters had already taken a romantic turn.  (Kenny broke up with me just before I left for college - he didn't want a long distance thing.  I was OK - college men awaited!)  

David's letters got longer and longer - he had amazing penmanship and he loved to write.  We talked about our dreams, childhoods, how we saw the world and so much more.  I wish I still had those letters.  He wrote poetry, stories and pages and pages on how much he loved me, how amazing I was, and on and on.  He remembered that yellow roses are my favorite flower and the bouquets started coming to my dorm.  Not many freshman were getting biweekly deliveries of a dozen yellow roses.  By the time Thanksgiving came, he had proposed to me in a letter.  By Christmas, he came home on leave and we were engaged.  It was heady and wonderful and romantic as all hell.  He made his mother furious because he spent his precious spring leave coming to visit me in Buffalo rather than going home to see her.

Well, by the time summer came things got weird.  His letters - which usually came 3 or 4 at a time due to the vagaries of military mail - had stopped coming.  I thought perhaps he was way out at sea and the mail plane couldn't get there.  I took a job working at a sleep away camp and was getting ready to leave.  Still no letters.  I left for camp and that day letters came, but I was already gone.  My parents forwarded them to me and they caught up to me a few days later.  There were 4 letters.  One was a normal letter - I love you, I miss you, can't wait to come home and marry you.

The next letter sounded weird and the third one was even weirder.  He wanted to break up with me, we weren't right for each other, we shouldn't get married.  It seems that Kenny was jealous of our relationship and finally started writing to David, telling him that I was a college girl, my parents were teachers, they (and I) would always look down on him.  (Totally not true.)  The rest of the summer the letters kept coming - one saying he loved me and was so sorry for upsetting me and we would get married as soon as he got home, the next saying it was all over and he didn't know what he was thinking to get involved with me.  Finally I took matters into my own hands and told him to stuff it.  I was through with having my emotions treated like a taffy pull and he should stop contacting me.  The letters went on for a while, same thing back and forth.  Finally he stopped and it was over.

Everyone should have a romance like that though. 

O, I was recently "friended" on Facebook by Kenny and we've reconnected.  His mom just died and I helped him through that a bit.  He just had a terrible motorcycle accident - hit a deer and was in ICU for a week.  Many broken bones and other injuries but he'll be all right.  His wife is posting regularly on his FB page so we all know what's happening.  

Funny thing - he is friends with David on FB and I saw what he looks like now.  Dodged a bullet there.

OK, so my last post was a bit of a downer and I don't like to concentrate on the negative.  As a side note, I have an appointment with the gastroenterologist tomorrow and should be scheduling the procedure for next week.

 I have been inspired by [livejournal.com profile] devoosha  to post this and so I will.  It might be hard to do it on a daily basis because we will be going on vacation in a couple of weeks, but I will do my best.

Day 01 - Introduce yourself, in great detail )

1. How can I tell if you're angry?
If I am angry about something that involves me, I get very quiet.  If I am angry about something that involves someone else, I get really loud.

2. How should I behave around you if you're angry?
Don't try to "fix" the problem or fix me unless I ask you for advice.  Hear  me out and let me rant if I need to.  And if I don't want to talk, don't push it.  Give me space and let me get my emotions under control.

3. How do you want me to behave when you are hurting emotionally? How is it best to comfort you?
Mostly just listen to me.  A hug is pretty much always welcome.  If I am sad, remind me of the good things in the world.  But don't push too hard.  Sometimes being sad is what I need to be.

4. Are there things we should not discuss?
I am pretty open to discussion about just about anything, but if we are really on opposite sides about something, let's just agree to disagree and still be friends.  I really hate it when someone tries to "convert" me.

5. How should I treat you when you are ill?
I will say this now - I am a lousy patient.  I have always been the caretaker person - I am very good at taking care of others.  I have had very little experience in the past with being taken care of and even though David has been valiantly trying to take care of me for 5 years now, I am still not used to it.  So show concern, bring me some soup (I love matzoh ball soup) and maybe a silly magazine or book.  And just keep me company.  

6. What makes you happy that's in my power to grant you?
An expression of friendship.  Show that you want to get to know me and I'll open up like a flower.

7. How would you like us to recognize your birthday?
See #6.  Same thing applies.  Maybe with a hug.  I love to be remembered.  I spent so many birthdays as a child and an adult alone and unremembered.

8. Are there any standing categories of presents that would be appropriate or unwelcome?
I really REALLY hate things like April Fool's gags, things that are intended to be jokes.  Sorry, but it is just not my cup of tea.

9. Are there times of the year that are difficult for you? Please explain if you are comfortable.
Spring, which has always been one of my favorite times of year is hard for me now.  I'll explain... My mom's birthday is March 6th, mine is April 17th and my dad's is May 4th.  Their wedding anniversary is June 11th.  My dad died on April  6, 2000 and my mom died on March 28, 2001.  So many dates with memories - happy and sad - are all grouped together in a big clump.  It gets a little easier with each passing year, but I usually get a bit melancholy in the Spring now.  And a little too at Thanksgiving.  That is my favorite holiday and I really miss my family at that time.

10. Are there important anniversaries in your life?
See #9 for several.  And June 25, which is my anniversary with David.

11. How do I cater for you if you are visiting me?
I don't need catering.  Just sit and talk. 

12. If I want to contact you, how should I do it?
Call me!  Or email... but I love hearing the voices of my friends.  Emoticons are no substitute for real emotion.

Would love to see others' 'manuals' :)

I'd like to know why the oil companies get to make outrageous profits no matter what else is going on.

Desperate Housewives, if I have to choose.  But Mad Men would be my preference.

No.  Been hit broadside once - picked glass out of my hair for a week.

Bugs Bunny, Rocky and Bullwinkle.

1 - Desert Island, one book - which?

Tough one... I love so many books.  I think I'd have to go with my copy of The Collected Works of William Shakespeare.  It's a classic and contains pretty much every human emotion.

2 - Current favorite fandom?

After seeing Bruce Springsteen in concert recently, I'd have to say I'd like to give up my day job and just be a groupie.

3 - Favorite musical artist?

Geez, pick only one?  Impossible.  I'll go with Bruce Springsteen but really, there are so many.

4 - If you could go back to college, would you go to the same one as one or both kids? What would you major in?

That depends on if I am going back to school in the present day or if I was going back in time to redo it all.  But if I could go back now I would probably go to UVM where my daughter is.  It's a great school and has SO many amazing programs.  I think I would major in psychology, not something I ever would have picked before.

5 - What is your favorite food to cook?

I love to bake my apple pies, but I think I love to cook Thanksgiving dinner the most.  Of course, that isn't just one food but you get the idea.
