Ok, you asked for it -- more info about me. What? You didn't ask for it? Well, sorry, but I got tagged by Cheryl and as I secretly love these sort of games, here we go.
Ten years ago: I was the “watering girl” at a flower nursery and my only concern besides getting a tan was what color theme I was going with to decorate my dorm room for my sophomore year at Colorado State. Or maybe I was hopped up on codeine watching every movie starring Chris O’Donnell that my mom could find because I had my wisdom teeth taken out.
Five years ago: I was getting ready for my seventh and final year of college (and yet, not a doctor) and probably drinking too much because I cannot remember what I was doing. Wait – I was working at a graphic design firm. Yes. And finishing up my time as the Features Editor of my college paper.
One year ago: I was miserable at my job and bummed because I was back from both Juarez and camp. However, it was also great because I had just moved into my condo that I BOUGHT and I was making it look pretty.
Yesterday: I was laying on a chaise lounge in the backyard of Sally & Joe’s house, drinking wine and listening to the breeze rustle through the huge cottonwoods. I love their yard and even though I hate cottonwoods for allergy reasons, I hope they always stay there because I love that sound.
Today: I’m alone at work, using someone else’s computer because my keyboard is having issues. I’m going shopping later. Clearly, it’s a typical day at the office.
Tomorrow: I’m leaving in the morning with 15 kids to drive to Montana for camp. A week of fun and games and campfires, all in the most beautiful place ever. Oh don’t worry – there will be pictures.
Five snacks I enjoy: Cheez-its, shrimp with extra spicy cocktail sauce, Twizzlers, dried cherries, sharp cheddar cheese with multi-grain wheat thins
Five bands that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs: Indigo Girls, Dave Matthews, Sting, Barenaked Ladies, Depeche Mode
Five things I would do with $100,000,000: I’m going to go with one thing, and that would be SPEND IT. I’d like to say I’d be responsible with it, but that would be a lie. Actually, I’d pay all my bills and put some in savings, and THEN spend the rest. I mean, I’d give it to charity.
Five locations I’d like to run away to: Hawaii, Australia, Bonita Bay Florida, Winter Park Colorado, Napa Valley
Five bad habits I have: Leaving clothes and shoes wherever I take them off, getting pissed at people who I feel should not be on MY roads, interrupting, being late a lot, saying the first thing that comes to my head sometimes
Five things I like doing: Hanging out with my friends and family, watching t.v. or reading, going on FUN trips, being affectionate, sleeping late
Five things I would never wear: Tapered leg jeans, a thong bikini, any animal print, two different patterns together (i.e. plaid and stripes), powder blue eyeshadow
Five TV shows I like: CSI (only the original), Law and Order: SVU, Monk, Spongebob Squarepants, Reno 911
Five movies I like: Shawshank Redemption, Sling Blade, Shanghai Noon, Gandhi, Swingers
Five famous people I’d like to meet: Truthfully, I’d really rather be able to meet my great grandparents on my dad’s side of the family because I don’t know anything about them. But if they have to be famous, I’ve also always wanted to Quantum Leap into the past so I could see what really happened when JFK was assassinated, or when Marilyn Monroe died. Maybe not meet, I guess, since those are both death-related incidents, but I wish I could see historical events firsthand. Wait, what was the question?
Five biggest joys at the moment: I’m leaving for Montana, it’s summer, my youth group kids, the fact that I have a great life for a million reasons, and the way my cats snuggle up to me whenever I’m at home
Five favorite toys: my power drill, my cd burner, my electronic solitaire game, my pedicure stuff, potting soil and plants
Five People to tag: Kendra, Kristina, Becki, Linda, Chief Slacker
