Throwback Thursday #5

Throwback Thursday

Oh man haha! Ok here goes..

 

My guest blogger for Throwback Thursday today is – Becky from Bringing up the Berneys

Oh man haha! Ok here goes..

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

  1. What was your favourite band?  
    My favourite band, hmm, would probably have been a toss up between You Me @ Six and Evanescence. (I still love both.)
  2. What was your favourite movie?  
    Err, for a long time it was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
  3. What stereotype would you say you fitted into? (Emo,Chav,nerd..etc)
      haha, I guess I would have put myself on the edge of Emo, but primarily just “normal.” (You could say Wannabe-emo hahaha)
  4. Tell us a funny story about something that happened!
    At one of the local nightclubs, they used to hold “underage nights” (AKA: nappy nights) where under 18s could have a night out in the club – no drinking alcohol obviously, it was basically one big open disco. My friends and I were standing in the queue to get in, and at the door the bouncers were breathalyzing everyone going in. I’d never seen a breathalyzer or knew that’s what they were doing, so I stared at the bouncer and said, “I haven’t brushed my teeth!” They then proceeded to laugh and gave me a mint haha. First and last time of being breathalyzed, never felt like such an idiot!
  5. Is there anything you regret that you did back then?
    I think most people regret half of their teenage lives lol! There are a few wardrobe choices, a few wrong friendships…and definitely a few bad hair dyes that I regret for sure.
  6. What was favourite drink?
    Coke. I drank far too much of it – and I was teetotal until I turned 18, never saw the appeal to drinking before.
  7. Did you think you were cool?
    Hell yeah! I thought I was the bees knees for “not following the crowd” and listening to alternative/rock music and wearing dark eyeliner and band tees. (I look back now and cringe.)
  8. Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
    Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
  9. What did you want to do when you grew up?
    I didn’t really know, I was stuck in limbo for a long time. I had no real “want” to be or do anything in particular! I did wonder about Technical Theatre or Teaching though.
  10. Share a picture of you then and now!
    Oh dear. Okay….

Anytime Becky! Your answers reminded me of myself! I thought I was a cool kid being alternative and everything with different colored hair and changing it all the time! Also can’t believe you thought they were checking you had brushed your teeth!

Hope you enjoyed yourself and thanks for your answers Becky!

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!

Throwback Thursday #3

Throwback Thursday

My third guest blogger for Throwback Thursday is Richie from One Hull Of A Dad

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

1. What was your favourite band?
I used to like Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre etc. I loved rap music, I was gangsta fo sure!
2.What was your favourite movie?
My favourite movie was and still is Die Hard, I must have seen it about 50 times. All men should like Die hard, it’s like a rule or something
3.What stereotype would you say you fitted into? (Emo,Chav,nerd..etc)
I’m not sure what category I would fall into, I wasn’t a chav, I didn’t hang with the cool kids but also wasn’t a geek, I could only really say I was just “normal” haha.
4.Tell us a funny story about something that happened!
I
can’t really remember anything really funny (I am getting old now). one thing that was funny at the time was betting our mate he wouldn’t eat a shit mix of food we find in the cupboards (we were getting pissed). He agreed and spent the rest of the night throwing up! It was funny at the time.
5.Is there anything you regret that you did back then?
No, I don’t regret anything, I was a good boy. Sorry, no gossip here.
6.What was favourite drink?
Cans of Fosters were my tipple of choice followed by Vodka and Red Bull, there were many a drunken time on Vodka and Red Bull
7.Did you think you were cool?
I didn’t think I was cool, I wished I was. Looking back now I’m glad I didn’t hang out with the cool kids, mainly because their idiots! All of my mates were good lads and we just enjoyed chillin out and having parties etc.
8.Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
Friends! It has to be! I’ve seen every episode so many time I reckon I still know what they would say next in each episode. They don’t make them like they used to (god I sound old now)
9.What did you want to do when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a policeman, ever since I used to watch The Bill on TV when I was little. Once I left college that soon changed.
10. Share a picture of you then and now!
The small photo is of me at my prom, the quality is awful as it was a photo of a physical photo I took and then put on Facebook. The other photo is of my at Christmas with my family.

Throwback Thursday #1

Throwback Thursday

I thought I would start something new for a bit of fun on my blog! I hope you enjoy and if you want to get featured leave a comment and I will get the questions sent out to you! =]

First up is Cheryl from mummyof5miracles.com

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

  1. What was your favourite band?
    I was full blown into cheesy pop ( who doesn’t love a bit of cheese!) So I would say Steps, I loved their dance moves, I’m loving the fact they’re back and with the dances to learn!
  2. What was your favourite movie?
    Clueless ! No idea why I just loved it, I think its cuz she was everything that I never have been and never will be! Haha
  3. What stereotype would you say you fitted into?
    (Emo,Chav,nerd..etc) Ermm I really wasn’t one…. If I had to put myself into a catergory it would probably be Girl-next-door with a tiny touch of little shit.
  4. Tell us a funny story about something that happened!
    My bestfriend and I were quite frankly a bit nuts, we both had older boyfriends with cars ( we were at school! For the record Ellie my darling almost that age daughter its not big nor clever and they just break your heart 😉 ) Anyway back to the story , We went out in the cars I can’t remember where we went but we were drinking thunderbirds ( me and the bestie not the lads driving) , My mate threw the bottle up in the air and it landed on one of the bonnets and dented it, as you can imagine they weren’t thrilled but we found it hilarious!
  5. Is there anything you regret that you did back then?
    Not ignoring the bullies and concentrating on myself instead. Due to being bullied I never wanted to go to school and this in turn meant I slipped from a grade A student to just scraping by. I should have kept my head down, who knows where I would be now if I had.
  6. What was favourite drink?
    Alcoholic or Soft? Alcoholic was something girly like Reef, although I had been known to drink white lightening ( ewww) Soft drink would be Lilt
  7. Did you think you were cool?
    Not even a tiny bit cool! I was a bit of an inbetweener. I wasn’t a geek but I wasn’t a cool kid either I was just there.
  8. Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
    There was a programme on cbbc that nobody else seems to remember but it was called The Biz and was all about a stage school with a rather hot looking Paul Nicholls in it.
  9. What did you want to do when you grew up?
    I wanted to be an entertainer in holiday parks, I wanted to be on stage and for people to love being around me. I did that job too! For a few years and loved it. I loved it even more after a careers advisor told me it was very unlikely I would get the job and I should probably go for a ‘real’ job
  10. Share a picture of you then and now!
    I’ve attached 2 pictures, the one in the black and red top on the first pic is me, the one on the right is me on the more recent pic. Unfortunately we aren’t like Ant and Dec so don’t stay on the same side haha. I probably could have found more flattering pics but wanted to show the friendship still there if that makes sense.

www.mummyof5miracles.com is my blog. I blog about anything and everything, it could be about a baby or a teenager, a recipe or health it really depends on what’s going on at the time. I like to think all of my post are either entertaining or relevant to the subject.
