Today's meme

The lovely and talented Sass tagged me for a meme, and although my new policy is not to accept these without postage (read: Paypal), she offered to model her Catholic schoolgirl uniform for me, so...

10 Years Ago Today
I was finally getting my shit together at university. My girlfriend had just graduated (having starting a year after me) and I still had one more year to go.

Five Years Ago Today
I was interviewing for my second job out of school and preparing to celebrate my 1st wedding anniversary.

1 Year Ago Today
The calendar read 2004. Everything else is exactly the same. (*sniff* I need a tissue...)

I was caring for my pint-size cousin and hoping I'd be offered the low-paying job that I don't really want.

I will be caring for my pint-size cousin again and looking for another job, since today I got passed over for the low-paying job I didn't really want.

5 Snacks I enjoy
I don't snack nearly as much as I used to, but I like Snow Pea Crisps (like Funyons, but made from snow peas, not onions), Guacamole-flavor Doritos, dark chocolate, cheese popcorn (cheese-flavored), HEB-brand brownie bites.

5 Bands That I Know the Lyrics to Most of Their Songs:
I suck with lyrics, but - Smash Mouth, The Eagles, The Police, The Beatles, The Beach Boys.

5 Things I Would Do with a $100,000,000:
Establish an annuity to take care of my family, pay off Alliegirl's house, buy Lisa a classic Taylor guitar, replace my entire wardrobe with custom-tailored suits/shirts/shoes, sell the remainder of my possessions and disappear.

5 Locations I Would Like to Run Away to:
Ireland, Kyoto, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Switzerland.

5 Bad Habits I Have:
Staying up/sleeping too late, postponing important conversations, finding an excuse not to exercise, disregarding the suffering of others, always wanting "more".

5 Things I Like Doing:
Blogging (reading & writing), driving through the park with the top down, skiing (snow and/or water), eating out, vacuuming.

You know a lot of lyrics for bands that begin with "The."

And I'm thrilled you called him W.

Oh so many reasons I heart you.

pudding racist.

At 6:45 PM, Blogger christ*el #3tx said...

are you a whore for MY IP too?

and by ALLIEGIRL'S house, you mean The Number Commune in Bora Bora, right?

and oh yeah, what's wrong with puddin?

At 8:54 PM, Blogger Zelda said...

Nothing under your kilt, huh? I so have a thing for that.

At 9:20 PM, Blogger tinyhands said...

Allie- i KNOW!

Aide- I know all the "The" bands because I'm old.

ikeMay- Proof that comedy doesn't need a laugh-track.

Sass- Come watch the DVDs, I've got the set.

ESC- It's my list, get your own.

#3m00- Nothing wrong with puddin. Regis claims it comes in flavors other than chocolate. I say, if it ain't chocolate, it ain't puddin.

Z- Makes me feel just like Mel Gibson. FREEEEEDOMMM!

At 9:25 PM, Blogger Kate the Peon said...

You like vacuuming. I like quirky men.

Oh, and quit bogarting the herb flavored brownies, will ya?

She is modeling her Catholic school girl outfit for you? I answered that questionaire too. No fair!

Sports Night...comedy at it's finest! I have the DVDs too.

At 9:38 AM, Blogger mellancollyeyes said...

by the way, how do you know who's IP address goes to who??

At 10:45 AM, Blogger Zelda said...

Yet somehow I've never forgiven Liam Neeson for letting a chick feel him up under his skirt in Rob Roy.

At 11:49 AM, Blogger tinyhands said...

ktP- I've got a huge quirk and I'm not afraid to use it.

Thomas- I'll get pictures if I have to PhotoShop them myself.

ESC- You seem to have a lot of rage. Anything you want to talk about?

KCTL- Yay! Big viewing party back-to-back-to-back!

Aide- I'm CIA.

Z- Is that how they checked prostates in the 1700s?

At 1:27 PM, Blogger kcterrilynn said...

Viewing party? Great! I'll bring the cheese (flavored) popcorn, you bring the puddin'.

At 1:52 PM, Blogger evilsciencechick said...

I am full of rage.

puddin' rage.

At 1:29 AM, Blogger tinyhands said...

KCTL- I'll supply the cheese (flavored) popcorn if you wear those thigh-high boots.

Regis- And, scene.
