I've done enough of the outrage thing for one day. So I swiped this from Joe
(who is also having a Tiger Woods caption contest
1. Where were you when you heard that Ronald Reagan died?
Home in front of the computer.
2. Where were you on September 11, 2001?
At work. A court officer came running into my office, telling me to bring up CNN on the computer. It wouldn't load, so we ran into my boss's office and listened to his radio. I can remember every single minute detail about those moments.
3. Where were you when you heard that Princess Diana died?
Suprise, on the computer. I was doing work for my father at the time and I was at his house, not really working, but chatting in the AOL Movie Quote Trivia room. I found out when someone in the chat room announced it.
4. Do you remember where you were when you heard Kurt Cobain had died?
In my car in the parking lot of Rockbottom drug store on Merrick Avenue.
5. Take one for The Gipper: What’s your favorite flavor of jelly bean?
I hate jelly beans. Sorry, Ron.
6. Where were you when Magic Johnson announced he was retiring from the NBA due to AIDS?
I have no clue.
7. Where were you when Reagan was shot?
Home, wallowing in misery over the idiot I was dating at the time.
8.Where were you when the exploded?
Uhh...on the computer. It was a C64. We had a C64 league using MicroLeague Baseball.
My mother was in the living room watching tv. My boyfriend and his friend were waiting for me to put my catcher's stats into the computer. I heard my mother gasp. Spent the next few hours staring in disbelief at the television.
9. Where were you when the 0J verdict was announced?
Home, sitting on the couch, waiting for the announcement. DJ, who was about two at the time, had an ear infection. He cried when the verdict was announced. I'll just assume it was from the ear pain.
What, no Rodney King? I remember that too. Ah, but nothing I remember so vivid as that Bucky Dent home run
So, that's my exciting blog post for this evening.
We still haven't hooked the tv up in the living room yet and all our books are still in boxes. I'm bored out of my mind. I may be forced to unpack the Game Boy.
You know, I think the above answers say more about my memory capacity than the actual events. I still remember every detail of my sixth birthday party. I remember the phone number of my best friend in 7th grade. I bet if you picked any day from the last 30 years or so I could tell you where I was if I thought hard enough about it. But I still don't remember where I was when I found out about Magic Johnson. Just not one of those things that stuck with me. Yet, I remember where I was when Brett Butler got traded from the Braves to the Indians. Go figure.
