Playing along

Slacker Mama tagged me to do a meme on a few short questions. Since we are at the beach this week and the last thing I am thinking about is being in the kitchen, I figure this is a great (easy) post for Sweet Pea Beach Week (a much toned down version of the more widely known High School Graduation Beach Week).

Here are the rules: Answer all the questions. Tag people to do the same.

Not that you asked...

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

Working on Capitol Hill for a Congressman from South Carolina and living with two of my good friends from college in Alexandria, VA. SPH and I were dating. As an aside, you know how certain weird, random memories stand out in your mind for no apparent reason? I vividly remember visiting Columbia, South Carolina for a work trip and having to gas up before I returned the rental car to the airport. Cost for gas? 89 cents a gallon. No joke. (I can just hear me as a grandma someday, "Back in my day, you could fill your gas tank for 10 dollars. Yes, the whole tank!")

2. What are five things on your to-do list today?

Go to beach and take family photos. Eat some good beach food. Drink a beer. Read a book. Check the computer.

3. Snacks you enjoy?

Tortilla chips and guacamole, Cheetos, Chocolate and Peanut Butter, Ice Cream, Cheese and Crackers, and the list could go on and on and on

4. Places you've lived?

Clovis, NM
Las Vegas, NV
Phoenix, AZ
Korat, Thailand
Tackley, Oxfordshire, UK
Rocky River, OH
Springfield, OH
Arlington, VA
Alexandria, VA
London, UK
Columbus, OH

5. What are 5 things you would do if you were a billionaire?

Come up with an investment/savings/donation plan
Start donating
Buy a restaurant or wine bar
Plan a world vacation with my family and close friends
Buy a place in Tuscany or Provence

6. People you want to know more about?

I tag...

Living Life Wright
Songs in the Key of Kibi
Super Healthy Kids
Steph's Cafe
Fearless Chef
