Any Excuse to Celebrate

Do you know what today is??

Now do you know what today is??

Maybe we should start with lurking: In Internet culture, a lurker is a person who reads discussions on a message board, newsgroup, chatroom, file sharing or other interactive system, but rarely if ever posts or participates. God love The Wikipedia.

So in the true spirit of the "holiday," I'm going to tell you something about me and I invite you to delurk and tell me something about you.

My first "boyfriend" was named Kevin. He lived two doors down from me. I was about 10 years old and he was 11. He brought me lilacs that he cut from another neighbor's lilac bush. He also allowed me to ride his Huffy "Phantom 56" bike when no other girl was allowed to ride it.

Fast forward two summers. Kevin was also the first boy I ever kissed. He was 13/almost 14 and I was 12/almost 13. We were playing Truth or Dare and I chose dare. Suddenly, we're kissing. He smelled like Chaps cologne and tasted like Velamints. I knew right there and then that I liked kissing.

Do you remember your first boyfriend? Who was it?

Do you remember your first kiss? How was it?

I've found it amusing, that ALL across the blogosphere people were doing the delurking Monday. The funny thing was, the delurking posts had less posts than the usual posts! LOL Anywho, I love your blog, and I won't ever just lurk :)

Ah, velements! I totally forgot all about those, but just reading the word reminded me of the taste and the smell. So weird!

First kiss was with a boy with braces and I had no idea what I was doing. I like to think I have improved since then....

Not really delurking.

First real kiss - Andy Long. 8th grade.

Summer between 7th and 8th grade--he was a year older and went to a different school. It was a "park" romance!

I'm trying to collect all of my ex-boyfriends on Facebook. That's my goal. And, yeah, first kiss is my friend.

Hi! Not a lurker, but you know, love to chat.

My first kiss was by the water fountain in sixth grade. Softer than I expected, but nice.

Hello! I don't think I'm allowed to delurk because I regularly shoot off my big fat mouth here. So, hello!
