another meme

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was getting ready to graduate from high school in a month. At my all-girls Catholic high school, all classes ended the month before graduation and we were allowed to wear "regular" clothes for the first time during school hours (instead of uniforms). It was a fabulous month, full of parties and events.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
I was working at a job that I disliked, waiting to hear back from the several law firms at which I'd interviewed, and then making a decision. I'm so much happier now!

Five snacks you enjoy...
Sliced cucumbers with lemon
Golden Oreos (yum)

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics...
(I don't even know what to say for this. I know about a million song lyrics)
My Hips Don't Lie- Shakira
Wonderland- John Mayer
I'm in love with a stripper (I'm so upset that I know the words to this song)
Bad Day- Daniel Powter
You'll Think of Me- Keith Urban

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire...
Travel around the world with Josh
Buy my parents a new house close to me
Donate money to many charities
Pay off my school loans and get a PhD in History
Save the rest, I guess (I'm so boring!)

Five bad habits...
PROCRASTINATION (my worst habit)
Lack of patience
Lack of organization

Five things you like doing...
Reading reading and reading
Sitting and talking with Josh
Reading blogs
Going out with friends

Five things you would never wear again...
Shoulder pads (stole this one from Pink Cupcake, but she is soooo right)
Biker (spandex) shorts (ick)
Tapered pants (I've seen the light, and I'm never going back)
Legwarmers (although they were mighty cool in the '80s)
Socks that match my hair scrunchie

Favorite toys...
My laptop (named lapdancer)
Television (named Wanda)
Camera (named Camille)
Do the dogs count? I play with them a lot.
Kitchenaid mixer (I love that thing)

Work has been kicking. my. ass. I think that I should be back up and running in a week or so- I hope! I'm still checking in with all of you when I get a chance, I'm just have some brain numbing from the quantity of work!

Hope you all are well!

I feel your pain. Here's hoping we can both come up for air soon.

Have an easier week.

ccw said...

Hope this week is easier for you.

I do think that dogs can count as toys.

Maribeth said...

I have all of your bad habits. Twins separated at birth?

Kristin said...

I love my mixer, too! Though mine is a pink Sunbeam from the 1960s.

Robin said...

I had to laugh at the socks that match your scrunchie!! My sister is 31 and that was so totally her era!! Everyone did that. I still don't know why!!

mama_tulip said...

LOL. Yes. Shoulder pads are baaaad.

Geggie said...

Ok, you've shown pics of your closet. You are not messy or unorganized!

Ninotchka said...

I know you better!



Jill said...

I'm right there with you concerning the guacamole (just thinking about it makes me salivate) and the Kitchen Aid stand mixer. My husband gave me the mixer as a surprise gift, and I was so happy that you would have thought I won the lottery. I love it.

Nancy said...

You haven't named your Kitchen Aid mixer? Does she feel left out since the rest of your "toys" have names? ;-)

Hope things calm down for you soon!

Pink Cupcake said...

I love that you name your appliances! :)

And, oh yes, shoulder pads should be banished never to return...

The KitchenAid I couldn't live without.

Just couldn't.
