What's the First Thing You Ever Bought Online?

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. I remember it like it was yesterday, not 15 years ago (because remembering it that way would make me sad). As a freshman in college, a group of us debated whether a "get a free CD" offer from MusicBlvd.com was a scam. The concept of typing in your credit card number seemed awfully dicey. I was on Team Don't Do It! initially, but the promise of a free The Best of Kansas CD was too much. So I guess the first thing I bought online was the free CD's required postage. Do you remember your first online purchase?

2. Next Wednesday is Leap Day, which we're very excited about. If you were put in charge of Earth's Official Leap Day Committee, how would you make us celebrate the occasion?

3. Are you planning anything special for February 29th? And if there are any Leap Day babies out there, do you really ramp things up when your actual birthday rolls around?

4. If you could have gone to any high school (or college) from books, TV or movies, what school's name would be on your fictional diploma?
