A Meme for Me?! Aww... You Shouldn't Have

I've been tagged for a meme courtesy of Lattes and Life.

The rules: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 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 your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What was I doing ten years ago? Let's see.....I was in my senior year of college. Going to school full-time and wrapping up sorority life. I was panicked about finding a job and had just met H. Life was a whirlwind that seemed so stressful at the time but now seems so carefree.

What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:
T.D.'s first hair cut. Got to get rid of that Nick Nolte mug shot look
Pick up fondue items for GNO
Pay a speeding ticket
Wallow in the world of potty training

5 Snacks I enjoy:
cheeses- from sliced American to something stinky I love it.
soft serve ice cream (I could hurt someone for that right now)
cut- up fruit- be it mango, pineapple, strawberries or even orange slices I love it.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire: A billionaire huh? Well, first pay off all debt. Then take a simple vacation to figure out what we wanted to do with the money. I would most likely set up a foundation or two for domestic violence in my area and others. Raising awareness for that would be key. As well as setting up a scholarship fund at my old high school and university for students who were a lot like me. Then house-hunting. I would buy a home in the District, then on the beach in RI, next stop France and then who knows. I would spend my time volunteering and helping out others. Yes, there would be shopping but the gathering of stuff would not be my life. I would help out my family too.

Places I have lived:
Various RI locales
Dumfries, VA
Vista, CA
Texas (I picked up a nice twang there)
High Point, NC (I realized the South was not for a "damn Yankee" like me. Hey, I was called that unprovoked many times in my stay there. Talk about feeling welcome. And yet, I still find the South charming for the most part.)
Rockville, MD & College Park, MD (ah, sweet freedom)
Various CT locations
29 Palms & Yucca Valley, CA (want to turn into turkey jerky in less than a few hours? Here's the place!)
Am I forgetting a place?

Jobs I have had: Also known as - how can I put you to sleep
Cashier at Hallmark, Benny's and CVS (dude, this last job rocked! I would write horribly bad "deep, dark poetry" and stick it on my register for the customers to read. Mgmt. was not pleased.)
I worked at a local sandwich shop on the beach- The Weekapaug Inlet- holler if you know it!
History Dept at HPU
Travel agent for UMD faculty (ooh how I loved going over receipts and denying folks for buying extravagant items while on a work trip.)
Student Activities Accounts Mgr. (ooh how I loved denying groups who were snotty or rude to me money for activities. NO PIZZA FOR YOU!)
Documentation analyst- DHS
Wage Specialist- DoD a.k.a govt. drone
Material Cost Estimator- Company A (obviously not its real name) a.k.a. slave to the proposal system.
Client Services Manager
Motel maid (about a day until I realized how no one else was cleaning the rooms, just me.)
Arbonne Consultant (still am!)
Technical writer for a company suspiciously like Initech. I prefer to think of it as the time I wished for a terminal illness (I'm dead serious) and worked on the Death Star for Darth Vader. She knows what I'm talking about.
I know there is more...

So now I'm supposed to tag five poor bloggers to do this- Sorry folks. Smack me later. I pick...
Reality Travel
Where in the World
A Catalog of Bitch
Sarah, Goon Squad, Sarah
A Parent in Silver Spring

Be sure to stop by and say hi to the first two blogs up there...they just got off and running and would love the comments, I'm sure! And of course, the last three are pretty cool bloggers as well, so you'll want to see what they've been up to lately. Have fun guys!
