These aren’t all necessarily bands I enjoy listening to…they just remind me of high school.

Time for a blog contest!  If you can guess what year I graduated from high school in, I’ll give you a really nice skein of fingering weight yarn (I’m not sure which one yet; I have to go out into the stash and see).

Leave your guess in the comments; here’s the rules:  you get ONE guess, you cannot guess the same year that anyone else already has, and the contest ends in 5 days (Saturday, October 18th at 11:59 pm). Of course if someone gets it sooner, I’ll post it before then.

I will give you a hint: it was during the last 30 years of the 20th Century.



  1. I’m so glad I’m the first person to guess, and I’m going to go with…1983. Based on our mutual love of Rex Smith. But you might be a little younger than me.

    Thanks for the memories – Sister Christian, ALL the Prince music, She Bop – man, I need to make a mix tape!

  2. I can’t guess. It just would not be fair ,dear.
    How are things on your end? we are gearing up for a move in the next month or so. Should be interesting.
