After 14 months of blogging, I’ve been hit by my first meme. Thanks, Jill, for letting me play along.
Rules are posted at the beginning. At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names. Then the player goes to each of the “named” people’s blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. If you’ve been tagged, you do the same, letting the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer. Your answer, of course, is the answer to the following questions. Here we go!
1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
In May 1998, I was working full time at the same agency that employs me now, although I took a 7-year hiatus in the intervening decade. I was on night shift then too, working phones, teletype and fire/rescue radio. I had a toddler and an 8 year old and was still cohabitating with the NQEH.
2. What are 5 things on my to-do list today?
Work. Do this meme. Read. Maybe knit a little (no promises). Sleep. (Boring, but true.)
3. Snacks I enjoy:
Fritos, fresh fruit in season, movie popcorn, peanut M&Ms, caramels.
4. Places I’ve lived:
Germany (Frankfurt and Augsburg), Texas, Florida (4 cities there), Virginia (Alexandria), N. Carolina (Ft Bragg, for the first week of my life and, no, I’ve never been back)
5. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Travel frequently, subsidize water/sanitation installations in needy areas all over the world, subsidize research into alternate energy, build/repair schools, subsidize language/arts/music/PE/theater/etc programs for public schools, build/endow community theaters for underprivileged and/or abused children/women to use as creative outlets for their emotions, buy a ticket to the moon (when it becomes available commercially), build the ultimate yarn-book-craftstore (with in-house cafe)
The rules say I have to tag 6 people now. How ’bout Megan, Elizabeth, another Toni, Sandy, Lisa, and the Chickengoddess? Check out their blogs, y’all. Anyone else want to play? Feel free to swipe the meme and post answers on your blog, then lemme know in the comments, ‘kay?
