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 #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.
