Ok George, I'll do this but I was on a good non-blogging roll there, you have to admit.
Here are the rules:
A) The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
B) Each player answers the questions about himself or herself.
C) At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
1) Ten years ago I was...
I don't know, that was ten years ago... I was almost 30.
2) Five things on today's to-do list:
make coffee, feed the dogs, walk Mookie, not work on my project at work (bosses orders!), do this meme for my sweetie.
3) Things I'd do if I were a billionaire:
I'd buy land up in Paso Robles with a great view, build a modest house that's mostly windows. Grow veggies and tend some goats and sheep and hang out. I might even invite family and friends to join me. I'd also probably try to fund hunger type programs among other things.
4) Three bad habits:
Bad habits, huh? I don't squeeze the sponge out well enough (according to George), I nag (but I can't help it because it is very effective at home AND at work), I nervously open and close my watch clasp which makes it not stay closed.
5) Five places I've lived:
Poughkeepsie, NY, Boulder, CO, Raleigh, NC, Mission Viejo, CA, and Santa Barbara, CA. Can anyone guess the pattern from the first 4 places? I'll give you a hint, it wasn't the army and my third grade teacher coined the phase (at least to me) "I've been moved."
6) Six jobs I've had in my life:
A clothing salesperson, an escort for classes of Japanese English language students, a release engineer, a "Solutions Engineer," a "Principal Technical Consultant," and a "Computer Scientist." That last job title cracks me up. It sounds like I should be wearing a lab coat.
So now I have to tag 5 people... I don't know 5 other bloggers, how about three? Trekking Left, Marty, and Cookie Jill.
