MarmaladeKiss recently tagged me with a meme. On this one, I have to answer 6 questions about myself. At the end of the post, I then tag 6 people and post their names, then go to their blogs and leave them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read my blog. Then, I must let the person who tagged me know when I’ve posted my answers.
What was I doing ten years ago - 1998
Uggh, 10 years ago I was working for a horrible employer in the mortgage business. Looking back, I can't believe I worked there and put up with it as long as I did. Without going into a lot of detail, let's just say it wasn't a happy time for me for the most part. Good thing I had sewing to keep me sane!
5 things on my to do list for today
Go to the gym. 5 pounds have snuck back on. Must. nip. in. the. bud.
Do some more work on a top I'm sewing.
Laundry, a never ending chore.
Top Chef (is it on tonight?)
Plan what to pack for Vegas trip.
Snacks I enjoy
Triscuits, hummus, cheese (current favorites: Wensleydale with cranberries and Kerrygold Dubliner), dark chocolate.
Things I would do if I was a billionaire
Hmm, not as easy to figure this one out as I thought. It would probably need to go in phases.
Phase one: pay off all debt, quit my job, set up finances so DF and I can live comfortably the rest of our lives. This phase would include a home that would have room for our various interests. A studio for me, a man-cave for him. Office space. An indoor/outdoor kitchen. Exercise room. I know, it sounds kind of shallow at this point, but it's my fantasy.
Phase two: travel, travel, travel. I've never been to Europe, and DF wants to go back to Vietnam. It would be great to have the money to go and stay for extended periods of time.
Phase three: set up a foundation to fund community projects that are important to us. Establish trusts for relatives, so they're taken care of. I don't want to just give it to them, though. I think it's important to have incentives in life and strive for yourself.
Places I have lived
Louisville KY; Nashville TN; Florida (Gainesville, Panama City, Merritt Island, Melbourne, Miami); Mobile AL; Albuquerque NM
6 people I want to know more about
Umm, I've done several of these lately so I think I'll probably cheat on "spreading the love", and not tag anyone. No offense, hopefully. This is a good exercise, and I think it would be neat if some of these queries filtered into some other blog posts.
