Some facts about me! Meme

I tagged myself, via Our Red House.

Some facts about me!

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. At the end of the post, the player tags 5 people and posts their name, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What was I doing 10 years ago?

I was living in a nice one bedroom apartment in one suburb of Seattle and commuting by bus (I had no car) to another suburb to work. I had a lovely cat and my fiancé had just moved in with me.

Five snacks I enjoy in a perfect, non weight-gaining world:

First I must state for the record that I do not avoid snacks because of their caloric/fat/sugar etc content, so I will list my first five favorite snacks and go on to my second set of five favorites in the following category.

1. Oat Scones
2. Plain scones with clotted cream (I have only had these a few times in my life, but they are so very good.)
3. A Latte or Mocha, depending on the mood
4. Ice Cream, specifically Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby
5. Dill pickles

Five snacks I enjoy in the real world: (or really my favorite snacks 6-10)

1. Coca Cola
2. BBQ potato chips
3. String cheese
4. Cashews
5. Apples

Five things I would do if I were a billionaire:

1. I would provide education for as many people as I could.
2. I would build a room in my house that would be just for cats, it would have ramps and sunlights and caves and innumerable cat toys.
3. I would never clean my house again. It would be someone else's job.
4. I would travel and stay places months on end so that I would really get to know them and the people who lived there.
5. I would have another child or two.

Five jobs that I have had:

1. Raspberry picker
2. Veterinary Asst
3. Army linguist
4. Customer care representative in a call center
5. Software quality engineer

Three of my habits:

1. Read everyday. I love books.
2. Open all of the blinds and curtains in the house (if I am feeling good, if they are all closed that is generally a bad sign.)
3. Turn off the lights. I prefer daylight (no matter how dim) to lamp light any time, plus I try to conserve energy.

Five places I have lived:

1. Atsugi, Kanagawa, Japan
2. San Diego, CA, USA
3. Encinitas, CA, USA
4. Monterey, CA, USA
5. Seattle, WA, USA

Five people I want to get to know better: (A nice way of saying TAG!)

1. a garden of nna mmoy
2. secondhand gods
3. Franny Kate's Creative State
4. The View From Elsewhere
5. don't wake the pretty

I can't remember if some of the above do not do memes. No worries if you don't want to do it. I also invite anyone who would like to do the meme who is not on the list to join in and give it a go. Please leave a comment if you do, as I would like to read what you have to say.

I am honored I made it on your list! I enjoyed looking at your blog. I haven't jumped into the world of meme's yet but maybe one of these days I will give it a try! I like your photo one!
