i knew it!

when I start reading my way-overdue reader, I usually start with the blogs that have 1 or 2 new posts, and generally by people that I really like reading and feel friendly with. So this time, I started with Rainbow Girl. And the post was a meme. And I had a feeling she was going to tag me. and she did!

so here are my answers:

What were you doing ten years ago? (Five things)

First of all, really? jeez, that was a long while ago now, and thinking back that far makes me feel really old. but okay. I’ll play.

  1. working, as an aesthetician.
  2. being silly with my two best friends, Angel and Megan.
  3. newly dating a boy I truly loved, maybe the only one I ever have truly loved, even though it cost me a lot
  4. reading more poetry than I do anymore, which makes me sad
  5. buying way too much junk that I didn’t need

What were you doing one year ago? (Five things)

  1. starting the last year of my undergrad
  2. being silly with my best friend Angel, but long distance!
  3. having endless feminist debates/discussions with Martha and Kathleen
  4. getting ready to apply to law school
  5. working, as an aesthetician

Five snacks you enjoy:

well, I love RG’s answers, so I’ll show them to you, and then answer myself:

1) Children, medium-rare.
2) Made for me by other people.
3) Free food
4) The anti-feminist critiques. I eat them for breakfast.
5) Does an entire McCain cake count as a snack?

  1. chocolate
  2. ice cream
  3. apple slices dipped in chunky nut butter
  4. brownies
  5. pico de gallo that I make myself and multigrain tortilla chips

Five songs you know the lyrics to:

Well, this is a silly question for me, because I have a ridiculous and completely not useful talent for remembering song lyrics. I kind of know all of them. but perhaps the most impressive is American Pie, Don McLean (yes!)

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire.

  1. pay off debt and invest money so I could have more millions
  2. give money to my family and friends
  3. start a foundation or charitable organization, or perhaps just pick a couple to donate lots of money to
  4. buy art
  5. travel

Five Bad Habits:

  1. I’m doing it right now: procrastination
  2. TV
  3. being oblivious to relatively important but incredibly boring administrative details of my life
  4. staying up really late, especially combined with:
  5. drinking too much wine

(I refuse to say swearing. I don’t think it’s a bad habit, I love it!)

Five things you like to do:

  1. see all of the above
  2. make fun of conservatives
  3. cook, bake, and eat
  4. play with my kitty
  5. have sex (well, it’s kind of the most fun way to pass the time, right?)

Five things you will never wear again.

  1. a lab coat
  2. a prom dress
  3. an ill-fitting bra
  4. glasses (I hope!)
  5. a uniform

Five favourite toys:

  1. hmmmm. this is hard. I guess my laptop
  2. and my mp3 player
  3. and my cell phone
  4. and my TV/DVD
  5. and my car

Five things you hate to do:

  1. say goodbye. I suck at it. I get all clingy, or I never talk to the person again. I don’t know any in between way to deal with my feelings of anxiety when I have to say goodbye to someone I care about.
  2. go to the doctor.
  3. be sick (yeah, I know, rock and hard place on those two)
  4. be cold
  5. get up early, particularly after staying up really late drinking too much wine

OK, so now I’m supposed to tag people. just please, nominate yourselves. I hate that cop out, but I also don’t like to nominate people. just do it, for me? you can leave it in the comments if you don’t have a blog!

I got tagged by Max at The Freeslave. I already did this one, but I’m feeling chatty today, so I’ll give you 5 new tidbits.

1. I used to be really artistic, in my youth. I could draw just about anything, and I played piano and saxophone, and I sang pretty well too. I’m trying to get back in touch with it, when I have the time.

2. I almost died during my own birth. I was breech, and they couldn’t turn me in time (poor mom!), and when I was born I couldn’t breathe because my feet were wrapped around my neck. I think this is why I’m an only child.

3. Crazy runs in my family. So does alcoholism. Sometimes I can see myself going down both those roads, if I let myself. Which is why I don’t drink all that much.

4. I trust people way too easily, I always try to make things work, and it almost always bites me in the ass.

5. I haven’t fallen in love in 10 years, and I don’t remember what it was like, being in love. I wonder if I’ll ever fall in love again. I guess that’s up to me!

Now, the tag part. As usual, I don’t mind being tagged, but I don’t much like tagging others, so I’ll leave it up to you – and if you don’t have a blog, just leave the answers in the comments section!
