First Loves Blogfest

It's First Loves Blogfest day, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh!  The instructions for this one are short and sweet:  post your first loves - movie, band/singer, book, and person.  Go to Alex's blog to see the list of other participants!





This is the first movie I remember loving so much that every time we went to the video store, I begged my parents to rent.  To say they got a little sick of it was an understatement.  

  

The first band I went gaga over was New Kids on the Block!  I'm thinking this was 5th and 6th grade. I was a total Donnie groupie!  I mean, look at that hair!
This was the first book series I read that really sucked me in and wowed me.  People were drinking and having sex, and there was murder, and drug dealers, and even a gay character!Yeah, this was middle school.  After this, I was sold and devoured everything Mr. Pike ever wrote.They just re-released this as a single book under another name, but I still have these copies.  


As for my first person...well, I'm going with an actor b/c my first love was an abusive @ssclown I try not to think about.  So who was my first love...?

  Oh, yeah.  Still have a tender area in my heart for this man.  :D

  3. I still watch the Goonies sometimes cause it's a great movie. My son's probably old enough to enjoy it. I'll have to watch it with him.

    Christopher Pike was one of my favorite authors as a teen. I had a huge collection of his books, which I sold on Ebay a fe years ago. I didn't have them all, but probably 75% of them. Slumber Party was the first one I remember reading in maybe 5th or 6th grade. I'll always love CP.
