What were you doing 10 years ago?

Ten years ago was 1996. I was in my second semester of my junior year of college. I was undoubtedly running around New York City like I owned the place, while having an absolute blast at school. I lived alone much of my junior year, although I started the year with a kick-butt roommate, Kerriann, who became my senior year roommate for that entire year. But in January, I was living alone.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

This time a year ago, I was still living in Centreville and trying to broaden my social life. I was getting used to my new job at DBVI, and starting book clubs and game clubs. Nothing very exciting was going on--just the mundane happenings of daily life.

Five snacks you enjoy:

  • Chocolate anything
  • Cheddar and sour cream chips
  • Apples and peanut butter
  • Popcorn
  • Ice cream

Five songs you know all the words to:

  • Row, Row, Row Your Boat (couldn't resist being a smart alec!)
  • C'etait Toi (Billy Joel)
  • Invisible (Clay Aiken)
  • Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)
  • Come Fly With Me (Frank Sinatra)

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

  • Pay off my mortgage
  • Quit my job
  • Buy a country home in England, just a small castle, nothing too grand
  • Renovate my current house to include all the amenities, but especially a kick-butt kitchen and a hot tub, plus a monster master bathroom and hardwood floors
  • Take a world tour boat cruise

Five bad habits:

  • Too judgemental at times
  • Don't live a consistently healthy lifestyle
  • Hate doing the dishes, so I let them pile up in the sink
  • Procrastination
  • Leave my clothes on the floor around the hamper instead of in the hamper (WHY DO I DO THIS!?)

Five things you enjoy doing:

  • Reading
  • Playing all kinds of games
  • Working on my house
  • Playing with my bunny
  • Singing

Five things you would never wear again:

  • Leg Warmers (I'm a child of the '80's, but who the heck thought leg warmers were a good idea?!)
  • That butt ugly bridesmaid's dress that made me look like a linebacker stuffed in a maroon sleeping bag
  • My wedding dress (once was enough, don't plan on NEEDING to wear it again!)
  • My grandfather's VFW hat (too sentimental, makes me cry)
  • Flared leg jeans

Five favorite toys:

  • My digital camera
  • My power screwdriver (thankfully I've never had to put furniture together without it after the first piece nearly killed my hands!)
  • Matches--I'm a total firebug
  • My leaf blower/vacuum
  • My car
