New Blog Games

What were you doing 10 years ago?

1996. Hmmm. Living in Delaware. Working as a 401k analyst for a bank. Finalized my divorce from my 1st marriage. Living with a wealthy turkish guy. Got my first passport. Went to London for a weekend. Discovering the internet via AOL & dial-up. Writing lots of poetry & trying to get published. Taking ballroom dance lessons. Falling in love with my dance instructor. Being generally young and irresponsible with money and emotions.

What were you doing one year ago?

Still adjusting to being a mommy with 6-month old Jakob. Still adjusting to going back to work after a summer of maternity leave. Waiting for my brother's now-almost-one-year-old daughter to be born. Otherwise, life not so different than now.

Five snacks you enjoy:

1. Oreos
2. Any kind of chocolate with caramel
3. Sour patch anything
4. Graham crackers
5. Cheese & crackers

Five songs, to which you KNOW all the lyrics:

1. Chuck Berry's You Never Can Tell (danced to this at our wedding - really)
2. 440's Estrellitas y Duendes
3. La Marseillaise (French National Anthem) - not sure if spelled correctly
4. Garth Brooks' Friends in Low Places (husband's favorite karaoke song)
5. Silent Night (always sing this on Christmas Eve at candlelight service)

Five things you would do, if you were a millionaire:

1. Buy a bigger house... I think here in SoCal, that would use up the million.
2. Invest more money in husband's photography (
3. Help struggling family with expenses
4. Buy a different car for me - give husband some play money to modify his truck
5. Buy an antique car and fix it up (had to sell ours when baby was born)

Five bad habits:
1. Eat too much
2. Spend too much time on computer
3. Don't notice household chores that need to be done
4. Hate brushing my hair
5. A little obsessive about anything I like a lot (a whole bag of oreos? all night scrapping?)

Five things you like doing: (hmmm these are suspiciously similar to my bad habits!)
1. Making things
2. Spending "just us" time with husband
3. Traveling
4. Spending time with my little guy Jake
5. Learning

Five things you would never wear, buy, or get new again:
1. Shiny black pants
2. Really short mini-skirts
3. Spandex anything anywhere other than a gym
4. Fluorescent clothes or accessories
5. Prairie skirts

Five favorite toys:
