Saturday 9 Forgetting to Forget

I am taking part in another Sat. 9 and writing it up on Friday as I usually do.
Since I am under the weather, I am rapidly running out of steam and can hear my little bed calling to me.
Here is the meme for this week... Hope you will take part as well. Its so much fun to read what people have to say.
Saturday 9: I Forgot to Remember to Forget (1955)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune?
Here is a sort film of the song. It's an awful song, I think...but I am not a great fan of Elvis at all and I am sure other's will enjoy it.

In honor of Elvis' birthday (January 8 )

1) Elvis sings that he thinks about this girl all the time. What person or topic is on your mind this Saturday?
I am writing this on Friday afternoon and not much is on my mind at all because I am feeling poorly with a bad cold.
Oh.. well actually I am thinking of my hometown and wish I could move back there.

2) He wants to forget the day he met his girl, but simply can't. Think about someone very important in your life. Did you know right away that they were going to be influential?
No. I think everyone you meet has influence on you and your life but I never realized who was or was not important in that way.

Since this week's song is about memories, let's check on how well you recall events in your own life.

3) What was the first concert you ever attended?
  At Carnegie Hall in New York City I heard an orchestra  but I forget which one. Our school took us to see so many things in NY from plays to concerts to the museums.

4) Where did you get your first piercing? (Not only where on your body, but who did the deed and where did they do it?)
My ears. I was 18 and bought small gold wishbones with a pearl on them at Adler's Jewelers in Westfield, NJ.  I am not sure if they pierced my ears or if it was done at the doctor. Just don't recall now.
Here they are. 14 karat gold with real tiny pearls. I still have them.

Most significant material things in my life came from Westfield. My wedding dress was sewn for me by a dress designer there, my much loved Bass Weejun loafers were always bought there, so many things.

5) What's the name of the bank where you had your first checking account?
 Colonial Savings and Loan since they gave 6% interest at the time.

6) Tell us about your first bicycle.
It was a tricycle and I was about 3 years old.

7) Who received the first text you ever sent?
I have no clue!

8) What had you been drinking when you suffered your first hangover?

   I have never had a hangover or been drunk in my life.

9) Whose was the first wedding you ever attended?

My sister's.  I was 4 years old and she was old enough to be my mother. I don't recall much about it at all.  I wore a long satin dress but was not part of the wedding. Not sure why I had a long dress. I do know it was a very formal evening candlelight wedding.
