Stealing it!

I dunno who started this or where I copped it from, but it's one of those I've not done yet:

10 years ago: August 1995 – I had just graduated from college and had just gotten dumped by who I thought was going to be the “One”. Overweight, no job, living at home, it was pretty pathetic. I met LP 6 months later.

5 years ago: August 2000 – Youngest one was 8 months old, so probably chasing her around the house. Getting ready for school to start back up again and return to my job as a drug counselor. Working out a lot.

1 year ago: My husband’s grandpa died last week last year, so we were funeraling it for awhile, helping out there. On August 27th was when his brother had his accident, so we spent the next 5 months at the hospital.

Yesterday: I transcribed in the morning, and then went to the girls open house at their school. Realized when I got home my FLY was open the entire F***ing time.

Today: Took the girls to Grant’s Farm. Did laundry.

Tomorrow: A’s first day of school, haircuts, soccer practice. Life of a soccer mom.

5 snacks I enjoy (but I don't necessarily eat anymore): Peanut butter anything, Chips Ahoy, Nutter Butters, popcorn, Toll house cookies

5 bands that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs: Rick Springfield, Dixie Chicks, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, (surprisingly) Beatles. I learned the other day I actually know the whole song “Could’ve Been” by Tiffany. Yes I’m embarrassed.

5 things I would do with $100,000,000: Get a financial advisor, pay someone to watch my grandma, buy an RV and travel, get a personal trainer, give a bunch to the shelter I used to work at and one more--probably start an 80s toy collection (see last one)

5 locations I'd like to run away to: Australia, the Caribbean, south of France, Cabo San Lucas, sometimes the nearest bar

5 bad habits I have: procrastination, spending too much time on the computer, snapping under stress, taking things too personally, not doing my hair and just putting it in a ponytail

5 things I like doing: blogging, playing trivia, riding my bike, Mexican dominoes, going on float trips

5 things I would never wear: pleated pants, thongs outside my jeans, belly shirts, cowboy boots, gold chains

5 TV shows I like: Of all time- Wings, SNL, the Price is Right, Seinfeld, Simpsons
Current: Reno 911, Arrested Development, Medium, Kathy griffin on the D-list, Best Week Ever

5 movies I like: Clerks, Star wars movies, Say Anything, Breakfast Club, When Harry met Sally

5 famous people I'd like to meet: Alive: Kevin Smith, Will Ferrell, Amy Sedaris, David Beckham, Jon Stewart (so either be hot or funny, or both)

Dead: Abraham Lincoln, Cary Grant, eh I can’t think of anymore. Tupac? Then I'd know the truth!

5 biggest joys at the moment: Being with my kids/husband, new job, finally being able to remodel our house, the weather, having my iPod

5 favorite toys: none of your business…okay, well aside from those…uh, Tivo, iPod, my bicycle, snow sled, and the computer…as far as childhood toys: Smurfs, Strawberry Shortcake dolls, Weebles, my Colecovision, and Playmobile people.

I'm hooked. I'll do it.

I know "Could've Been," too. Her album was my first ever CD (a gift). It got a lot of play.

Nobody likes pleated pants. Why do they still make them?

You couldn't think of some more famous dead people? How about Pinocchio, Gulliver and My Man Friday?

Hoss, obviously you do not live in the Midwest. Lots of women here find them to be staples of fashion.

When did Pinocchio die???

I want to know what commet has been deleted...
Oh you are so much younger than me. In fact 10 years. Now I feel old.
I love your list, but I especailly like your "I'd like to meet"-Amy Sedaris-she rocks. In fact in would be great to meet her and her brother together.

Vajana said...

oh it was spam. I didn't know I could get spam comments, but I guess I can! At least it wasn't for Viagra....

Yeah, Amy Sedaris rocks. I've only read one of her brother's books, but they are on my list of things to read!
