One Last MeMe

Write Procrastinator gave me this.

It's the last one I do...

Ten Years Ago:

I was struggling to raise my children on my own. I attended law courses on state grants to write my own briefs because I couldn't afford an attorney, I was depressed, and I burned furniture in the winter. Good times.

Five Things on Today's To-Do List:

1. Watch "La Vie en Rose"
2. Write something....oh, does this count?
3. Laundry
4. C & R day!
5. Pretend I'm productive

If I Were A Billionaire:

You mean when I'm a Billionaire (and now I have that stupid "If I Were a Rich Man" tune in my head)

Three Bad Habits:

1. I squeeze toothpaste from the middle of the tube.
2. I talk in films, doing the six degrees of separation thing and complaining about continuity.
3. I will not eat in front of people I don't know.

Five Places I've Lived:

1. Colorado
2. Mississippi
3. Arizona
4. Louisiana
5. New York

Five Jobs I've Had:

1. Demonstrating how to play a dulcimer at a shop in Grand Lake, Colorado.
2. Cooking lunch for a bank's employees
3. Production Stage Manager
4. Travel Agency Manager
5. Bingo Goddess

I'm NOT tagging.

Wow, burning furniture that must have been some scary times. -- Also, I lived in Arizona and Colorado also. Arizona from 1983 to 1987, (Flagstaff for College.) and Colorado from May of 1990 to December of 1990 (Denver)actually a suburb of Denver called Aurora

10 years ago my breast were just starting to grow and at that point I was convinced that breasts were in fact Satan's torture tool inflicted on me. Growing pains. Awkward.

I did not however burn any furniture.

And Quin, what excatly does a job as a "Bingo Goddess" entails?

This meme does count as writing, you are flexing the same parts of your brain, ya know?

"I squeeze toothpaste from the middle of the tube."

You have more than a little anarchist running through your veins, I see.

"Demonstrating how to play a dulcimer at a shop in Grand Lake, Colorado."

Did you play any Lorena McKennit?

Oh, thanks for participating!

wp~i demonstrated, i didn't say i actually was any good at it.

iw~oh, so do i!! *sigh*

cd~it entails running the bingo fundraiser for the catholic school your children attend. you get to schedule all the other parents, count 'pickles' (which are pull tabs) and generally be lord and master of a smoke filled room.

bill~it wasn't. but, we are a close knit group, so, it all turned out well. i know where aurora is.. i was living in longmont when you were there.

Ah ha! I found it. Silly that tries to push me around in French.

Anyway I was saying, I'm with you, girl. We could trade for a few days! Because I want to be a bingo goddess and a production designer. And because I squeeze toothpaste from the middle of the tube, too.

Glad to have your company on my blog, and to find your good company on yours.
