11/12/2004 Entry: "MI-5, Old Skool (for real!)"

1. What one class in school/college did you hate the most?
Fantasy, Myth, and Enchantment. The course description looked great! Mythical literature. Cool. Unfortunately, it was merely the instructors way of indoctrinating you into Transcendental Meditation. Awful class. Just awful. I preferred statistics, if you can believe it.

2. What two teachers made marks on who you are?
Music teachers Marlene Hall and Richard Walton. Dr. Faxon did a good job too, teaching not only his subject (chemistry and physical science), but teaching you how to think

3. What three hot lunch menu items were your favorites?
Scrambled hamburger. Instant mashed potatoes. Bread & butter sandwiches at Gilford B. Bulter.

4. Fourth period in high school--remember what you were doing?
Easy. Fourth period was lunch at RDHS. Three out of four years I had chorus that period. I'm not sure what I had in the off year.

5. Name five friends from "your group" in high school. Do you know what they're doing?
Brian Gamage, Nate Buter, Jeremy Newbert, Frank Chandler, and Jeremey Rackliffe. Brian was working for a college in Florida last I knew. Jeremy N. has some delivery service he works for, and drives back and forth to Boston I think. (Delivering drugs if I recall.) Frank Chandler is still kicking around I think, but I don't know what he's doing. Same for Jeremey R., although I know he was working for the Waldoboro police department for a time. (Now that was a funny story...)

Replies: 1 person has rocked the mic!

1. Definitely Accelerated Geometry my freshman year of high school. Absolutely hated it. The only "D" of my school career!

2. I'm not sure that any teachers actually left a "mark" on me. Mrs. Bouchard, my 4th grade teacher, was one of my favorites, though. She read to us everyday from the Little House books, thus my love for Laura Ingalls Wilder. We also hatched baby chicks in her class. Loved it. I also appreciated Mr. Borgerson at Owls Head School, along with the business teachers at RDHS--Mr. Andrews, Mr. Ebert, and Mrs. Washburn (now Ms. Curran). Oh, yeah, I really liked Mrs. Birenbaum, too. I guess I liked most of my teachers.

3. Tuna Roll was my absolute favorite. Although I wouldn't admit it at the time, I also liked the scrambled hamburg and brown gravy over rice. Looking back on it now, the baked chicken dinners were pretty good, too.

4. Lunch was during 4th period, as Bill said. I'm afraid I can't remember what classes I had during that time, though. I think I had Advanced Office Procedures my Junior and Senior years, and maybe Study Hall during my Sophomore year.

5. Ronda Nystrom Long--currently works for Northeast Health and has a girl, Rachel, that is Caleb's age. She is still one of my best friends. Elizabeth Allen Lamarre--probably my best friend in high school. Cheering buddy. Haven't seen her since the year after graduation. I understand she has children now. Lived in the Northwest for a while. That's about all I know. Rebecca York Bart--works for AOL in the DC area. Just got married. Haven't seen her since right after graduation. Stephany Smith Lindsey--Last time I knew, she worked for the hotel associated with Waterworks. Has 2 children. Lives in Hope. See her at Wal-Mart and the grocery store from time to time. Carol Ackley--we had the EXACT same schedule our Sophomore year. That was really cool. She died in 1991 from Cystic Fibrosis.
