Flashback Friday: Flashback Friday

No, the title is not a typo. It was on this day one year ago that I instituted Flashback Friday on My Adventures in Tucson (later Ithaca). At the time, I said I wasn't sure that I would be able to post a story every Friday, but I went back and checked and it turns out I had a story for every single week. I never missed a Friday. Some stories were better than others - either inherently by their subject matter, or in the way I wrote them - but each week, something from my past was featured here as its own special post.
So today, for Flashback Friday, I'd like to take a look back at all the Flashback Fridays of the past. Here they are, in all their glory, separated by category (but not in any particular order otherwise).

Childhood

Fartsy Barbie
Shut the Door!
The Giant Soccer Ball
In Which I Model for Nike
Happy New Year!
Three Coincidences
You're Fired! (almost)
My First Makeup Memory
Shoeless Bridget Walker
Learning to Write
Sent to the Principal's Office
College
When Bridget Met Jeremy (4-part saga, with bonus Das Ist Nicht OK video installation)

The Middle East
Russia

Japan

In honor of the anniversary of Flashback Friday, I would love to hear your favorite(s). As for myself, I have to say, I had such a great time telling the story of how Jeremy and I met, especially over multiple installments, including as much of the real-life suspense as possible. Taking the time to write that story - and all the others - was a great excuse for a long, pleasant trip down memory lane. Thanks for walking it with me.

I think my favorite was Fartsy Barbie. That had me cracking up all day.

You're not stopping Flashback Friday, are you?!

"How Jeremy and I met" was my favorite too.

The Russian hospital escape story was a hoot. I still laugh when I think about some poor elder sneaking out of a hospital. HAHA!

I've retold "The Russians are Listening!" to my coworkers, who were pretty intrigued by it all. As a matter of fact, I still find that relatively like a spy movie!

My favorite was how you met Jeremy. I love hearing couples stories. I know you have told me the story before, but I enjoyed the more detailed version! :)

All of the Russian ones are my favorites.

I'm with Joe....The Russians Are Listening STILL makes me laugh out loud whenever I think of it.

My favorite was the accurately-titled "The Most Awkward Garter Toss Ever." I unfortunately didn't notice the posting when I could have timely commented, so I'm glad you listed it here.

What an odd event, but I thought it was hilarious at the time and still do. Thanks for (somewhat involuntarily) taking one for the team, Jerome.

I think laughed hardest at The Great Lotion Security Breach and Shut the Door! Of course I always love flashbacks that I can personally remember as well, such as Photo Shoot. And your story of meeting Jeremy was terrific too.
