Meme of Various Stuff

Here’s a picture of our peony bushes I took last week. They don’t look anything like this right now, as they are at the end of their lifespan. I don’t think the 90+ temperatures the past two weeks helped anything, either. Till next year, my beauties 🙂

Taffiny tagged me for a meme the other day, and I figured today would be a good time to do that. I have other rants I would like to go on today, but I’d rather be positive than negative.

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?
Around this time ten years ago, June 1998, I was home from college for the summer. I worked at a Summer Day Camp for kids at a State Park to make a little money. Evenings, I played a lot of street hockey with my friends, and on weekends I played in an adult soccer league. I was probably feeling very smart even though as I look back I realize I knew nothing.

2. 5 things on your to-do list for today

  • Go to work
  • Help with dishes
  • Maybe help with laundry
  • Buy a Father’s Day gift for my Dad
  • Watch Doctor Who!

3. What would you do if you were a billionaire?
I’m going to change this to millionaire, because I think that’s more interesting. If I was a billionaire I would probably use hundred dollar bills as toilet paper, because I could.

If I magically got a million dollars I would immediately quit my job and start writing full time. I’d pay off my student loans, pay off my cars, and move to a house with more than two closets and central air conditioning. The rest of the money would go into the bank, to live off of while I struggled to finish the novel 🙂

4. What are three of your bad habits?

  • Too much surfing on the internet
  • I drink too much caffeine
  • I eat too much salt

5. What are some snacks you enjoy?

  • Beef Jerkey
  • Potato Chips
  • Peanuts/Cashews
  • Pie

6. What were the last five books you read?

  • Little Brother
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society
  • The Hobbit
  • The Discworld Graphic Novel
  • The Golden Compassl

7. What are five jobs you have had?

  • Camp Counselor
  • Computer Programmer
  • Database Administrator

8. What are five places where you have lived?

  • Tiny Town in Pennsylvania
  • Indiana, Pennsylvania
  • Newark, Delaware
  • State College, Pennsylvania
  • My current small town in Pennsylvania

I’m scared to tag anyone, so if you want to do this go ahead. Let me know, though, because I’d like to read your responses.
