Throwback Thursday #4

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday number #4 is all about Lisa from Pass The Prosecco Please!

Think back to when you were a teenager and answer these questions!

  1. What was your favorite band?
    I was a complete boyband lover, and 911 were my absolute favourites.  I went and watched them live age 14 and climbed a telegraph pole so I could wave at them. Oh, the shame!
  2. What was your favorite movie?
    I wasn’t a huge movie person as a teenager, but it was the era of teen-slasher movies like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer and Blair Witch Project, so I watched plenty of those.  Armageddon was a huge one as a teen.
  3. What stereotype would you say you fitted into? (Emo,Chav,nerd..etc)
    Emo wasn’t really a thing when I was a teen, everyone seemed to either be a Goth, Chav or Boff(nerd).  I didn’t really fit into any of them, I was more a hippy-geek, with my plaited bunches, embroidered jeans and Shaun the Sheep backpack.
  4. Tell us a funny story about something that happened!
    I told a huge fib about how I wasn’t scared of needles and how I’d had an operation and they didn’t phase me, and then when I went for my BCG I sat in the chair and promptly did a runner as soon as the bird pulled the needle out.  When they caught me about a mile away I was dragged back and then I fainted as soon as she jabbed me.  I never lived that one down.  I also dislocated my shoulder and had to be carried half way round the cross-country route by my Welsh PE teacher, like a full fireman-carry.  I was so embarrassed.
  5. Is there anything you regret that you did back then?
    Yes, I let myself be bullied and taken the p*ss out of constantly.  I was bullied badly and so painfully shy I let people treat me like sh*t and take the mick constantly.  It was an unhappy time for me, I wish it could have been so different.
  6. What was favorite drink?
    Irn Bru, it was the best.
  7. Did you think you were cool?
    Not at all, I was ‘sad’, as above I was just one of the hangers on that was a bit of a target for bullies.
  8. Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
    Byker Grove and Knightmare, they were the best!
  9. What did you want to do when you grew up?
    A vet or a teacher.  As it goes I get way too emotional about animals and I don’t like children(apart from my own) so neither was going to happen!
  10. Share a picture of you then and now!
    I don’t have any photos of me as a teenager, they are all in a box at my mums!

Lisa is a 30-something mum of one, a blogger and a keen wine drinker.  You can find her random writings over at

Lisa, you sound like you were the cutest teenager! I must see a picture of these plaited bunches with your shanu the sheep bag! Sorry to hear you were bullied though, what a horrible thing to go through!

I hope you all enjoyed number #4 on the Throwback Thursday fun!
