I've been tagged

TEN YEARS AGO: I was a freshman in high school, had just stopped ice skating competitively, met my current boyfriend wayyy back at the first night all the incoming freshman meet each other- and threw his baseball hat on the roof of the school (it's one story, and a janitor brought a ladder over- so he got the hat back)

FIVE YEARS AGO: I was in college... I taught myself how to knit sometime in 1999 or 2000... and started a wonderful addiction, met a friend for life (hi M!) and had a whole lot of fun!

ONE YEAR AGO: 1L year. Long. Tiring. Demoralizing. Over.

FIVE SNACKS: 1. mini-brownies that Martin's (grocery store) sells 2. chocolate 3. popcorn 4. chocolate pretzels 5. chocolate chip cookies
So you see the trend? Or- "One of these things is not like the others..."

FIVE SONGS I KNOW ALL THE WORDS TO: 1. House of the Rising Sun 2. The Distance- Cake 3. The Devil in Disguise- Elvis 4. What a Wonderful World- Louis Armstrong 5. The Wanderer (oldie but goodie)

FIVE THINGS I WOULD DO WITH $100 MILLION: 1. travel around the world 2. plan on a 1 month vacation every year 3. start my own buisness and be my own boss (law or fiber) 4. buy a really nice spinning wheel (and maybe sheep) 5. invest wisely- so I don't burn through it right away, so there is some left when I'm old, and so there is money left to donate to charities after I die.

FIVE PLACES TO RUN AWAY TO: 1. Brazil- Bahia or Rio 2. Paris 3. South of France 4. Costa Rica 5. Hawaii (I've never been there, but I'd like to go)

FIVE THINGS I WOULD NEVER WEAR: 1. cowl neck sweaters 2. pencil pants 3. bulky turtleneck sweaters 4. sweater dresses 5. micro-mini skirts

FIVE FAVORITE TV SHOWS: 1. Simpsons 2. Futurama 3. Family Guy 4. The Apprentice (with Trump) 5. Law and Order SVU

FIVE BIGGEST JOYS: 1. dancing 2. knitting 3. teaching a kickboxing class 4. finding out that you acutally can do what you think you can 5. sleeping in on the weekends

FAVORITE TOYS: 1. my new spinning wheel 2. all other fiber related stuff 3. my laptop 4. my snowboard 5. update- I'm taking out "my boyfriend" because I would be pretty darn upset if he wrote something like that- although he hasn't decided if he actually is mad about it.

FIVE PEOPLE TO PASS THIS ON TO: Elizabeth at ; Madalyn at ; Ada at ; Mayflwr at ; Kris at
Tag, you're it...

I can't believe it's been five years since undergrad! I was just thinking of going to parties our freshman year - trudging through the snow, hoping to find the party and free beer or jungle juice...*sigh* the good old days. ;)
I remember getting lost in the snow on the way to Pike... and sliding down the snowbank! those were fun times!
I think he was more upset at being #5 on the list than actually being listed as a toy. I think he wanted to be #1.
