I'm watching Grey's Anatomy Season 1 again, cus it's on DVD now. One of the questions Meredith asked potential roomates, was "where were you when the challenger blew up" to eliminate candidates that were too young.
I remember where I was, I was in third grade, at school. I also remember watching it on TV at the school. My school would have been shut down for showing us something like that in today's world! For God's sake don't let kids see how the world really is! But, go ahead and watch women be objectified, and treated like whores on any old channel, any old day.
I also remember when Princess Diana died. I was camping with Bubba and her ex, and my ex husband. We were with a group of older people, drinking and partying. (I was 21, kids!) We watched it on TV in the RV. (ok, I realize this isn't real camping!) It was a buzz kill needless to say!
Where were you on 9/11? I was at work. I remember hearing my boss say that a plane hit the world trade center, and I thought, wow that's too bad. I had no idea what the world trade center even was. I'm sheltered to most worldy news. I knew it was big, but it didn't register. We all gathered in our lunch room, and watched it on TV. That made it all real. TWDSO had to get on a plane the next day to come home from job training. That was when I loved him, so I was scared. Mostly I remember how quiet it was with no planes flying. How everyone everywhere, seemed to be in the same state of mind. It was definately something no one can ever forget.
I remember the gulf war, scared the shit out of me. So much that I dedicated 3 pages in my journal to the fact that we were all going to die! These are crazy times!
It's interesting how certain events have such an impact on your life. For my mom it was "where were you when Kennedy was shot" or "where were you when elvis died?".
It's a beautiful day! I'm going on a walk for lunch with my friend Dusty. I get to go out after work for veggies from the produce store, that is open! Yay! Cheap stuff! I caught some cat eating my cat mint this morning, I saw him through my laundry room window. He didn't put in on that shit! He can't be eating it!
