  1. 1) Name the first grown up book you read.
    If you consider Agatha Christie as “grown up”, then I’d have to say “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd”; otherwise probably something trashy my mother was reading by Barbara Taylor Bradford (how embarrassing! Maybe I should lie and pretend it was something like Tolstoy…which I’ve still never read, to be honest).

    2) What is your favorite movie with Kevin Bacon in it?
    This is going to really date me – but I love “Diner”! (Didn’t see it at the cinema when it came out – I was only 12 -but saw it on TV in the 1980s).

    3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it.
    Oh, so many… If I have to choose, it’d probably have to be Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana” which brings back great memories of my student days. Otherwise, anything by Neil Diamond would probably do too.

    4) What was the best meal of your life?
    Honestly couldn’t say. Certainly nothing recent (ie in the last few years). I have more memories of crappy meals or dead-ordinary meals than great meals…

    5) What was the first concert you ever saw live?
    Haven’t been to many concerts in my life (can’t bear smoke and there was always smoke when I was young), but I did see Level 42 when I was in high school (I feel sooooooo old…).

    Great questions!

  2. 1) Name the first grown up book you read.
    Does Anne of Green Gables count? If not, probably… hmm… To Kill a Mockingbird

    2) What is your favorite movie with Kevin Bacon in it?
    She’s Having a Baby, but only for the last scene and Mystic River

    3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it.
    Don’t tell anyone.. The Call by the Backstreet Boys.

    4) What was the best meal of your life?
    I have to pick one? I can narrow it down to three: chicken alfredo at a little whole in the wall italian join in downtown Baltimore somewhere, chicken marsala with spinach at an italian restaurant in Virginia Beach, and chicken wrapped in prosciutto at my adopted parents’ house.

    5) What was the first concert you ever saw live?
    Weird Al in Baltimore.

  3. 1) First grown up book: Probably read some before this, but the first one I really remember is “Great Expectations” in middle school.

    2) Kevin Bacon: I don’t have a favorite movie of his, but I loved it when he was on “Guiding Light” back in the 1980s.

    3) Embarrassing song: “Girl You Know it’s True” by Milli Vanilli

    4) Best meal: Maybe not *the* best, but one favorite was at a restaurant in Cocoa Beach, FL when I was on travel for work. Fabulous seafood, appetizers, and wine.

    5) First concert: The Power Station at the New York State Fair. 1985?

  4. Love love LOVE your answer to question 7. Yes.

    1. Jane Austen, all of them. I spent a summer reading nothing but Jane.

    2. Apollo 13

    3. Out of Reach by Gabrielle

    4. This is the hardest one. I’ve had ten or so outrageously good meals. Sometimes the memory of the grows fonder because of the company, or some other factor outside of the food. A fantastic meal I had by myself was lunch at Les Halles in DC (now closed). I devoured a huge bowl of mussels with french fries, and wine. Ended with profiteroles and coffee. Then I flew home very happy.

    5. John Denver. I was 12. Sue me. It could have very easily been Barry Manilow.

  5. Lumpyhead's Mom's friend Sarah says:

    1) “Airplane” in 6th grade, I think. My mother banned my twin sister from reading it…so I did.

    2) Maybe “Diner,” maybe “Footloose” — how depressing that I haven’t seen a movie he’s made in the last 25 years!

    3) “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by Meatloaf. Lots of college memories (all tame!) with that song.

    4) Some local restaurant in Paris where my mother’s best friend (who is Parisian) took my husband and me in 2000. Everything we were served was amazing – duck, potatoes, wine, and a dessert.

    5) “ABBA” in Boston, in high school or junior high in the late 1970s. I had to leave before the end because they started late and it was a school night.

  6. 1) The Color Purple by Alice Walker

    2) Footloose

    3) Sugar We’re Going Down by Fallout Boy (OMG Pete Wentz is such a douche.)

    4) I don’t know. The shrimp I had at my wedding was amazing, but I also made an incredible homemade tomato sauce last week that was pretty exquisite.

    5) Rollins Band. My my didn’t let me go to concerts until I was 15, and I’m really glad because if she had let me go in middle school my first concert would have likely been NKOTB, and not something awesome like Rollins Band.

  7. That’s my mom didn’t let me go to concerts, not my my.

  8. I’m stealing this for a blog post. Thanks. I have a headache and no creativity.

    PS – LOVE Appetite for Destruction – that was in heavy rotation while getting ready to go out during junior and senior year of college. I still remember every word to every song and have a hard time not dancing whenever I hear it. Also, I get a sudden craving for really, really cheap beer. Served in plastic cups.

    PPS – Black is so a color. Assholes.

  9. First concert? Jackson Five at Angels’ Stadium, circa 1975. Second? Bay City Rollers. I was cool. When I was 7. Heh.

  10. Thanks for helping me not think for awhile.

  11. 1. I read Pride and Prejudice when I was ten. My dad’s awesome liberal hippy cousin who DID NOT OWN A TV gave it to me, because she thought I could handle it. I really didn’t get it, but I never told her that…

    2. Flatliners. I don’t care if it sucks, I still think the concept is cool.

    3. Xanadu, by Olivia Newton John.

    4. This one meal at Luke, in New Orleans, which was oysters and sloe gin fizzes, followed by crab bisque and shrimp etouffee and soft shell crabs and my brother ordered this redfish topped with crab meat that is for sure my favorite thing I have ever tasted in my life.

    5. I saw tons of classical concerts, opera, things like that my whole life, but my first “rock” concert was this outdoor show when I was about nine, to see Peter Paul and Mary with my parents. I loved it.

  12. 1. ‘Lord of the Dance’ by Andrew Greeley. I think. I can’t remember that far back anymore….

    2. ‘Footloose’. Mostly because of the music. And dancing. And I can’t think of anything else….

    3. Song…Hm. It’s a toss up between ‘Copacabana’ and ‘I’m walking on sunshine’.

    4. Best Meal of Life: I’m not sure; I’m a sucker for fettucine alfredo diablo but a perfectly cooked steak will knock me to my knees any day of the week. As long as there is cheesecake to go with it, I’m in heaven.

    5. First concert. Billy Joel & Elton John in 1994. I was 20. So….yeah.

    This was fun! Thanks for helping me kill a good 5 minutes of my workday. :)

  13. 1) Name the first grown up book you read. Depends on your definition of grownup. :) Actually it was A Spell for Chameleon by Piers Anthony which started my long life of reading Fantasy novels. His “trilogy” is now up to I think 27 novels. I haven’t really kep t up with them after 12. Lots of puns and a lot of fun for my pre-pubescent/adolescent mind.

    2) What is your favorite movie with Kevin Bacon in it? This has to be, hand down, Tremors! I LOVE that movie – my wife on the other hand HATES it. Good times with huge worms, how can you not like it?

    3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it. “It’s a Small World.” I am a huge fan of all things Disney and I truly do love the simplicity of these song. You know that you want to be humming it now, it’s okay.

    4) What was the best meal of your life? The very first time my wife made some beef stroganoff – it was awesome! Could have been the beef or the batch of sour cream, or whatever. Subsequent beef stroganoffs have never lived up to that first. Weird, I know, but that’s me in a word, weird.

    5) What was the first concert you ever saw live? That would be Journey, back in either ’83 or’84. In fact, if you ever watch the music video for “Faithfully” you can see the weather we endured to get to see Journey. See the snow/ That’s what we drove through. I guess technically though it was Bryan Adams, because he opened up for Journey.

    This was fun and I didn’t even have to think too hard to answer these questions. Your selection today just ROCKED!! :D

  14. 1) Name the first grown up book you read.

    Flowers in the Attic. VC Andrews was sick as shit. It was a bad idea.

    2) What is your favorite movie with Kevin Bacon in it?

    Footloose, no question. I had lust in my heart for him and a tri-fold centerfold from 16 Magazine taped to my white bookshelf. I saw a photo of him yesterday and dude is 51!

    3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it.

    I am never embarrassed to admit that I love any song, no matter how terrible, well, maybe my interest in the entire Kid Rock “Cocky” cd and love for All Summer Long. I don’t talk about that quite so much, but otherwise, whatever.

    4) What was the best meal of your life?

    I don’t think I’ve had it yet. The first that came to mind was the Tagliata Toscana (marinated skirt steak & arugula with prosciutto and melon and fresh mozzarella appetizers) at Frank in the Village. Also any time I’ve had a grilled cheese and tomato soup when I really needed it.

    5) What was the first concert you ever saw live?

    Donnie & Marie

  15. 1) Name the first grown up book you read.
    The Hobbit, by J.R.R.Tolkein, loaned to me from my dad’s collection. I read it in 10th grade and loved it so much I read the other three that followed and am now forever in love with fantasy fiction.

    2) What is your favorite movie with Kevin Bacon in it?
    Uh hello. Footloose.

    3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it.
    pretty much anything by Britney Spears, I can’t help but love me some pop.

    4) What was the best meal of your life?
    Lone Star steakhouse, with the husband, sans kids. More for the company and relaxation than the food.

    5) What was the first concert you ever saw live?
    Petra I think? Wow, that was a long time ago.

  16. Thank you thank you thank you for giving me something to post today:

    tie between Animal House and Tremors
    3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it.

    4) What was the best meal of your life?

    Dinner, Chinese New Year, in Hong Kong. We just kept ordering dishes and eating about half the menu

    5) What was the first concert you ever saw live?

    the first one that I remember was a local band – The Cowboys playing a festival here in Seattle. The first real “buy tickets to a venue” concert was Siouxie and the Banshees on the PeekABoo tour, and it sucked (because she was strung out on drugs)

  18. oh, and I’m not ashamed of any of my song choices, from the Macarena to Rick Springfield. Seriously.

  19. 1. I’m not really sure, I read Gone With the Wind in 6th grade, and it’s the first thing I can remember not marketed to kids.

    2. Footloose.

    3. Enya. Any of them, really.

    4. The first date dinner with my husband, at a restaurant called Canoe in Atlanta. Steak and polenta and swiss chard and wine.

    Laf. Day On The Green #1, 1976, Oakland Coliseum. The Outlaws, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Peter F*in’ Frampton.

  21. 1. Probably something my mom forbid me to read like Judy Blume’s Wifey or Smart Women. (Both of which my mom owned.) Or maybe some Jackie Collins. Apparently I loved smut even at a young age.

    2. I kind of hate Kevin Bacon as an actor, but I did enjoy Stir of Echoes.

    3. Shakin’ It 4 Daddy by Robin Thicke ft. Nicki Minaj. Saying that name out loud makes me feel ridiculous.

    4. I can’t stop thinking about the crab cakes from Howard’s Pub on Ocracoke.

    5. Spin Doctors at Rocky Point! The Wallflowers opened for them.

  22. 1. Where the Red Fern Grows. Thus began my goal to not read books or watch movies where the dogs dies. Boo!

    3. Strawberry Wine by Deanna Carter. Its so fun to belt out in the car!

    4. Chicken Parmesan at Bennett’s in Grayland, WA

    5. Amy Grant, House of Love Tour. Tacoma, WA. I’m guessing 1993 or so. haha!

  23. I was tagged for this by someone else. I may do it. It’s been a while. Black is a color. :)

    1) I honestly can not remember. I read all the time though.

    2) It’s a tie for me. I adore Footloose. But I love his role in Beauty Shop. The fake accent, cracks me up every time.

    3) We will be free. Garth Brooks. What? Stop looking at me like that. I’m a sap. The end.

    4) This one is easy. Monteray Bay, CA. A little restaurant that I can’t name but could find easily, a block away from the aquarium. Wood fired Scallops. Cheesy tomato risotto. Garlic bread. All of it was melt in your mouth, to die for, fantastic.

    5) Billy Vera and the Beaters. I was five. My parents rock.

  24. 1) In Elementary School I had to do a report for something and I was doing it on Bo Jackson. My dad had a biography of his, so I read that. However, my dad taped shut portions of the book because much of the material was totally inappropriate for whatever age I was. (I want to say it was sexual in nature: rape, molestation, something…)
    2) Mystic River
    3) Oh man…uh…I dunno. Probably some Hip Hop song that is embarrassing but has a nice beat that gets my ass moving.
    4) My “last meal”. Hours before I was set to be induced my family took me out to eat so I could pig out. Fried chicken salad, onion rings, bread sticks and pizza. Little did I know I’d be in labor for over 48 hours and not be able to eat, so I’m damn glad that I did.
    5) Dude. Billy Ray Cyrus. Shut up! I was 13….and I got my glasses broken and a black eye fighting for the sweaty towel he threw off stage. Shut. Up.

  25. 1. Love Story by Erich Segal. I was in 7th great, I felt so grown up.

    2. The River Wild. His eyes are so evil.

    3. “All the Time” by Barry Manilow. I know. I would totally love to see him in Vegas.

    4. Steak topped with crab & asparagus, scallopped potatoes, caesar salad, white wine, creme brulee. Capital Grille, Scottsdale, AZ.

    5. Amy Grant, Unguarded Tour, 1985 Tacoma Dome, with friends from youth group. Everything was leopard print and hot pink, and awesome the way only 1985 could be awesome.

  26. Jeanette says:

    1) Name the first grown up book you read.

    VC Andrews – Flowers in the Attic

    2) What is your favorite movie with Kevin Bacon in it?

    I had to IMDB him. couldn’t think of anything but Footloose. But i guess he was in Planes, Trains and Automobiles so that’s my pick!

    3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it.

    I love my Britney Spears hits CD (although skip over all the early stuff.)

    4) What was the best meal of your life?
    hands down the meal i had at RFD (real Food Daily) in LA. my first visit to a vegan restaurant and as a vegetarian is was so freeing to look at the entire menu as options and not just to hunt out the one or two things without meat. Vegan Salisbury Steak. AWESOME!!!

    5) What was the first concert you ever saw live? Living Colour.

    PS-Black is not only a color it is the best color.
