First Loves Blogfest

Today is Alex Cavanaugh's First Loves Blogfest. We are to post our first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest! Don't forget to follow the link and check out the other participants.

So here we go.

First movie I can remember loving?

The Goonies
What's not to love? A bunch of misfits trying to save their homes, pirates, booby traps, One Eyed Willie, and the Truffle Shuffle!

Great lines:
Goonies never say die.

"...booty traps." "You mean booby traps?" "Yeah, that's what I said, booby traps."

First Song/Band
This is a bit more telling on my age, but my first love here is Chicago.

First Book
I have to go with Anne of Green Gables. I relate to Anne on so many levels. Just ask anyone who knows or has met me and they can tell you that I talk constantly. If I try really hard, I can shut my mouth, but blabbering is an art with me.

There is this deep seated need in my to have people like me, and I take things very personally when they don't. And when my temper flairs, you'd swear I was a carrot top like Anne.

First Love
My first love might have been Gilbert Blythe. But my mother tells a story of catching me kissing a boy named Shawn outside my dad's Chiropractic office when I was in Kindergarten. I don't remember this, but there you go.

There were lots of crushes throughout my years, but I got lucky enough to marry and hold onto my first REAL love.

Still my favorite photo
