Planning schmanning, tagged is tagged.

The Rules - Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer. DEAR KJ, I POSTED MY ANSWER.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago:

I thought I was a republican. I had just finished a pretty rockin' senior year landing the lead in the senior musical and singing the national anthem at graduation. I successfully graduated from high school. I was dating a boy with a very low IQ and lots of muscles. We all went on a family vacation to Disney World. I pissed my dad off by choosing a private college, instead of following said 'meat head' to OSU. So, dads refused to pay for my school and I told him to f-off [which didn't go over well]. I was scared shitless to go to college, but was ready to find out who I really was [later TBD as a raging Jewish Liberal - which probably pissed him off even more]. I wanted to be a vet, and after cleaning up cages and dog shit at the clinic for the past three years - thought I knew what it was all about [I didn't know the part where you don't make any money and are not considered a real doctor]. Life was well... transitional.

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

-transcribe a focus group I conducted with federal parolees.

-teach cycling at the gym

-wait for reply cards in the mail and curse at people who decline.

-eat lunch with FI [only two lunch dates left, boo]

-open any presents that might be sitting on the doorstep [yay, a knife!]

3. Snacks I enjoy:

BBQ kettle chips, cake, Graeters Cookie Dough Ice Cream [my current fav], Zesty Queso Cheez-Its, Caffeine Free Diet Coke, pistachios, twizzlers, snow caps, and the Happy Meal that Jennie got at the movies last week.

[Snacks I actually eat: 2% string cheese, hard boiled eggs, low fat cottage cheese cup, sugar free peach cup, soy yogurt cup, South Beach Diet protein bars and Peanut Butter Cheese Crackers]

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
-Pay off our wedding credit card

-Pay off my student loans (and FI's and my brothers)

-Hire a maid, her name is Juanita, she cooks, cleans and irons EVERYTHING. [KJ I don't care if it's classist, I'm rich, I still drive a Honda, and I want my damn bra's hand washed!]

-Give money to stuff we care about- Israel, Children's Defense Fund, Planned Parenthood, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Duke, Findlay, poor people and probably my brother. **Or throw a huge benefit [hire someone else to plan it] to raise lots of money for leftist causes!**

-Buy a pair of Manolo Blahniks, just say I own one pair [man I hope they're comfy]

-Make sure my kids college is paid for [but that they are not spoiled bitches]

-Travel, our current top list: Italy, Ireland, Australia, and Bora Bora.

-Buy a house with a master bathroom with DOUBLE SINKS!!

5. Places I have lived:
Pickerington, OH; Findlay, OH; Westerville, OH; Troy, OH; Fairborn, OH. [as you can see I migrate in a 100 mile radius - until the draft, er um, match I mean.]

I tag:

Jennie, because she is always bored at work and needs to not play Scrabble as much.

I love you!

Also, I very much enjoy the division of snacks into two categories. I think that is appropriate.

Also, how exciting that someday soon (i.e. two years from now) you will move away from Ohio, potentially to someplace like Portland, yes? (Portland is better than VA. For sure.)
