Tagged. I'm It.

Lifetime Meme
Jenny Two Times tagged me...

10 years ago:
I moved away from home and lived in a condo with a high school friend. I smoked a lot of weed due to the fact that I dated a pothead. Dumped pothead. Or he dumped me. Can't remember. We were stoned. Lost 60 pounds.

5 years ago: I was 27. I had a job I hated as an Administrative Coordinator. I smoked cigarettes. I was dating an asshole. Seriously, he was the biggest asshole I ever dated. He bordered on psychotic. (And no, those of you in the know, I am not referring to pRick.)

1 year ago: I moved into an actual house...the main reason being so I could entertain larger groups of people. I fell in love, unexpectedly. I was content for a little while.

I narrowly escaped being drenched by a drippy air conditioner vent. I got 5 hours of sleep- in a row, uninterrupted. I ate leftovers. I talked on the phone with my best friend.

Today: I have the day off. Am running errands for a big party I am throwing tomorrow in my backyard (my lil sis is turning 30!). Mr. UPS visited me and again, I was in my damned pjs, sans make up or bra. I have lots of cleaning and prep work to do.

Tomorrow: Dokey's garden party. Lots of family and friends in town to celebrate. Maybe a trip to the Boardwalk for a ride on the Giant Dipper. (weeeeeeeee!) Lots of laughter and fun.

5 snacks I enjoy:
Almonds. Peanut Butter & Celery. Popcorn. Guacamole & chips. Nectarines.

5 bands/singers that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs:
Tori Amos. Indigo Girls. Ella Fitzgerald. Martin Sexton. PJ Harvey.

5 things I would do with $100,000,000:
Start my own Charitable Foundation. Buy a house by the ocean. Start my own line of stylish hipster clothing for chubbettes. Pay my mom back. Travel.

5 locations I’d like to run away to:
Italy. Spain. New York. Ireland. Tahiti.

5 bad habits I have: Biting my nails. Saying "like" way too much. Eating too much sugar. Not flossing (but lying about it to my dentist). Picking at scabs.

5 things I like doing:
Writing. Doing crafts. Throwing parties. Sending cards. Sitting by the sea. Playing with my pets. Cooking. Hugging. Laughing. (Ok that is 4 too many but oh well.)

5 things I would never wear:
A miniskirt. Gold jewelry. Very high heels. A poncho/shawl contraption. The color orange.

5 TV shows I like:
Will & Grace. Simpsons. Law and Order: SVU. What Not to Wear. The Daily Show.

5 movies I like:
When Harry Met Sally. Say Anything. The Princess Bride. Garden State. Casablanca.

5 famous people I’d like to meet:
Maya Angelou. Joni Mitchell. The Dali Lama. Jon Stewart. Tom Robbins.

5 biggest joys at the moment:
Writing. My new kittens. The weather. Training for a half marathon. Taking trips in my new car.

5 favorite toys:
I don't have toys anymore but when I was a kid they were- The dollhouse my dad built. My banana seat bike with tassels and a basket. Fashion Plates. Shel Silverstene books. Hungry Hippo.

I so love Tom Robbins and I actually got to wait on him about 5 years ago when he was doing a book signing at the bookstore that the resteraunt owned. Even stranger in real life. My favorite is a toss up between Still life of a Wookpecker and Invalids home from hot climates.
