10/23/2003 Entry: "Crazy Quizzes From Brewer"
First best friend: Denny Davis
First real memory of something: Some kind of carnival in Rockland, and I remember Aunt Ginny being there.
First car: 83 Chevy Citation
First date: Don't really remember
First real job: McDonalds
First screen name: Don't remember
First self purchased album: I think it was some compilation of music called "Power" something. It was on 8-track. I remember it contained the tracks "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic" by The Police, "Rapture" by Blondie, "Super Freak" by Rick James, and "I Can't Fight This Feeling" by REO Speedwagon. It didn't contain anything by Sister Sledge.
First funeral: Hmm. Grammy, my great grandmother, I think. I remember I was too young to go to Nanny's (my maternal grandmother).
First pets: Spike was my first cat, and Nosey was my first (and only) dog. I can't recall if hermit crabs preceded them or not.
First piercing/tattoo: None
First credit card: JC Penney. I used it to buy Susan's engagement ring.
(There's a bunch in the Get More Here section.)First enemy: Not really sure. The first time I got in trouble at school was for taking David Mahonen's hat. After that, though, we became very good friends.
First big trip: Not sure, but it must have been to New Hampshire to Storyland for family vacation.
First play/musical/performance: I played the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz in third grade.
First musician you remember hearing in your house: Live? Must be Mom.
Last big car ride: Maine to PA and back for Jenny's wedding.
Last kiss: My Beloved, this morning.
Last good cry: It's been a few months. It was probably about me feeling inadequate as a husband/father.

Last food consumed: Reeses Peanut Butter Cup, individual size, in fall colors.
Last phone call: I was talking to Harvey about customer service and drum set delivery options.
