Fiiiiiive Goooold Riiiiings... I mean Meeeemes

I was tagged by Dave of The Real Dave with a... meme.

The rules:
1. Post the rules of the game at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people 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 the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What were you doing five years ago?

Wow. That was June 2003. Good grief. Who can remember that far back? Bones had just turned 4… so my kids were going into PreK4, 1st grade and 3rd grade. Mr. T and Ringo were doing a one week morning art camp at school. They were helping the incoming Kindergartners. I was trying to stay sane, a perpetual theme in my life.

What are five things on your to-do list for today?

1) Take the boys to golf camp.
2) Pick up the bathroom mirrors from the frame shop.
3) Balance the school’s books for the month of May, as I just got the statement today.
4) Take the boys to the pool and teach them stroke technique and work on floating.
5) Go to Publix and pick up ingredients for tonight’s dinner and tomorrow’s since I work all day tomorrow.

What are five snacks you enjoy?

1) Baked brie with pear.
2) Chocolate with fruit.
3) Cheese and crackers
4) Guacamole and chips
5) Ice cream… Dove makes one with this genache on top that you poke through and then there’s some vanilla chocolate yumminess. Also Moosetracks… can’t keep it in the house, but I do love it.

What are five things you would do if you were a billionaire?

1) Buy my brother a new car and a place to live permanently in LA.
2) Give money to my alma mater’s math and IT departments, enough that they could attract some GREAT brains to go with the great brains they already have, and hopefully do some tremendous research… I’d make them a mathematical and IT powerhouse.
3) I’d quietly anonymously give money away to organizations I think are worthwhile.
4) I’d take my entire family on one big vacation and then my husband’s entire family as well. Separate.
5) I’d invest it to make sure that my family was secure for generations… but with provisions that they’d have to give back to society in some way. Everyone should contribute.

What are five of your bad habits?

1) I chew the skin around my thumbs when stressed and I pick at my fingers.
2) I curse. A lot.
3) I eat too much food that’s not good for me.
4) I quit exercising like I should… I’m getting lazy.
5) I’ve been told I push myself too hard and since I do feel like I’m running on the edge too often, they are probably right.

What are five places where you have lived?

1) Oahu, Hawaii
2) Taipei, Taiwan
3) Monterey, California
4) Pensacola, Florida
5) Baltimore, Maryland

What are five jobs you’ve had?
1) waitress at a Chinese restaurant
2) waitress at a steakhouse
3) waitress at a Shoney’s
4) engineer in an aerospace company
5) Mom

Five people I tag:

Jay at The Extended Table
Kris at Reflections By Kris
And... my blog father... Harvey of Bad Example!

You don't like my vehicle?

Maybe we should conduct a poll on this meme about who has the most answers in common with each other...

Posted by: diamond dave at June 11, 2008 03:34 PM

Done...funny thing though, i didn't read your answers until this morning, i don't know why. but some of the answers were just eerily similar, i agree with Dave.
