Seven Questions



One of my favorite blogs Travs Thoughts had a little meme the other day that I was saving for a day when there wasn't all that much to do or say. Feel free to steal if you like the questions as neither Trav or I tag.

First step: Post The Rules. Here they are.

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. At the end of the post,the player then tags 5 or more people (or doesn't) and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answers.

Okey-fine. Rules posted...check!

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

Let's see, that would be 1998. I was living in Northern California working for a charitable foundation as a proposal writer. Not particularly earth shaking but it was one of those jobs that made you feel good about going to work.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?

Cook a corned beef (I live in a family that thinks St. Patrick's Day is a weekly event)
Change the cat boxes (probalby shouldn't have put that chore so close to the corned beef).
Make a doctor's appointment for six month check up.
Go by my favorite political site and scream at the %$%^^&^$# who don't agree with me.
Answer the Turnbaby's Triva Challenge questions.

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Macadamia Nuts
Cheese & Crackers
Peanut Butter on a spoon
Guacamole

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Set up a charitable foundation to give away a lot of it.

Buy a home on the water at Bass Lake


Go around the world in a Queen's Suite on a Cunard Liner.

5. Three of my bad habits:

Procrastination
Bite Nails
Swear at bad drivers (It's a California good driver thing).


6. Five places I have lived:

Multiple cities in California
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Phoenix, Arizona
Tacoma, WA
Washington DC

7. Jobs I've had:

Telephone Operator
Sales account computer coder
Technical Writer and Editor
Office Manager
Radio Station PR & Political Liaison

That's it. Feel free to steal it if you like it!

Jamie, nice memememe post. I thought for sure you had played this tag long before now so I didn't include you from my blog when I was tagged recently. I got Renee and Horsedooty to play. HD's is over on Border Explorer and Renee's is on my blog. Hasn't anyone from CL agreed to play? That place is becoming more of a zoo every day what with more than 500 posts at a time, many with open hostility to one another. I read a little of it occasionally but don't post very often any more.

Jamie, thank you for Richard Harris. I listened to him sing "Camelot" the whole way through! Then I couldn't get the comment window to open... I don't know why. So I read your Travis meme which I did a while ago. I love learning about people - corned beef, eh? A family that thinks every day is St. Pat's day! My family's Irish...

Oh! Can you really still cruise all the way around the world?

I'm putting that on my list.
