How Old Were You When
« on: July 01, 2008, 10:36:31 PM »

Here we go, very simplistic...I'll start off by asking "How old were you when ____________________?" Whichever Round Table member answers the question follows with their very own "How old were you when _________________?" and the perpetual loop commences...

So here we go....

How old were you when you watched Manos for the very first time?

I was a mere 21 years old. I watched it, of all places, on a Realvideo file being hosted by the Sci-Fi channel for this cool online Sci-Fi convention they were having. Me and Tyrant were still freshly online-dating at the time, and we both started the file up at the same time so we could talk to eachother about it while we watched. It was my first time Syncing something too. Every now and then, I'd quote a line at about the same time as the video, so we could pause for the appropriate amount of time. We'd end up watching a lot of shows together this way. :^)

Ummm... I guess i was maybe 8 weeks in the womb? That's supposedly when the ears finish forming. I never had to "fall in love" with music.

I was probably 9.  My friend Kahla and I would play Barbies and she would have Barbie and Ken (and sometimes Skipper actually) do this weird naked rubbing thing, that was probably when I was 8, then in 3rd grade we had "family life" studies in Religion class where we learned the actual inner workings of all that.  Around the same time my parents gave me this book:



I really wish I could find it because it was freakin' hilarious.

I was 11, and I had to badger, whine, complain, scream and torture my parents to have them let me stay up past midnight on Saturdays to watch the new ones.

I was about 15, and she was a cute little redhead. We didn't really date, just were close until she broke it off. Broke my wittle heart.

Define "horror"....

If Frankenstein with Karloff counts, then six.

If you need something more like Nightmare in Wax or Dementia 13, then 10.
