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!
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- What was favorite drink?
Irn Bru, it was the best.
- 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.
- Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
Byker Grove and Knightmare, they were the best!
- 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!
- 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 passtheproseccoplease.co.uk
