The sassy and quick-witted Keri Ford, author of “Through the Wall”, “Making Her Nights”, and more, takes the RNRHS reins today. If you aren’t familiar with Keri’s work, I suggest you fix that real quick. Her books are both sexy and funny (beware the pan of hot biscuits), a feat few are able to accomplish, and she’s just so darn cute while she’s doing it. I also suggest you follow her on Twitter so you can gain first-hand, real-time knowledge of the wacky stuff that goes on in her life. It’s free entertainment, people!
Parker’s Chapel, South Arkansas, Class of 2001, Currently: Mother, Wife, Author and the very, very occasional maid in this house.
Band and/or song that reminds you the most of high school: Britney Spears. Oh no wait—Last Kiss by Pearl Jam. That one that was redone about his girl dying in a car wreck. I don’t know why, but we sang it like crazy. Or well, there was that Left, Right, Left song by Drama. We sang it on the school bus. Then there was that WHOLE ENTIRE ALBUM Eminem and Dr. Dre did together. Green CD. Lime Green Marijuana leaf on it. If my mom had found that I would have been in soooo much trouble.
Favorite piece of musicmemorabilia (poster, t-shirt, etc.) in high school: Cheerleader uniform. Does that count? We danced sometimes. I didn’t really have stuff on my walls. Momma would have taken issue with putting holes in the walls or tape ripping the paint off over a cheap poster. Guess I could have framed something…but a little late for that now!
Band that you hated that everyone else at school seemed to love: Good question. And I don’t think I have an answer for you. I like a variety of music and the people I hung out with liked that music too.
Best show or concert you saw in high school: Enter patheticness. I’ve never been to a concert. Unless you could my Junior High School plays. And they shouldn’t count. Trust me.
Best high school make-out song: Ohhh. It’s that one my dh and I had kissed to or something. Oh, wow. Bad WIFE! Major fail here. OH~ Don’t Close Your Eyes by Keith Whitley. If you’ve ever heard that song, you’re probably thinking wtf is wrong with you? Not really a romance, but it came about because I tended to fall asleep a lot while we watched a movie or something on TV. #GirlfriendOfTheYear

Thanks for having me Karen! Will be interested to hear if anyone else has a CD they were afraid their parents would find! or tape…record…track (trak??)if you roll back that far. 🙂
Keri, thanks for being here! I don’t recall anyone having worries that their mom would find a CD. Most of the time, there were concerns about, uh, less legal items.
