Gimme 5!

Cyndie tagged me, and how could I resist her? That woman is a force of nature.

The rules are as follows:

1. Each player answers the questions about themselves: five items per answer!
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment letting them know they've been tagged and to ask them to play along and to read your blog.

10 Years Ago:
I still had kids in diapers.
I spent way too much time driving to school, preschool, BoyScouts & soccer.
I spent about 3 months in a miserable funk over turning 30.
Son #2 gave me a ring pop and asked me to marry him (they each did that at age 4).
I volunteered at school.

Today's To-Do List:
Finish laundry
Reload the dishwasher
Pick Son #1 and Fiddlin' Writer's Boy up from the party they're attending
Walk the dog one more time
Clear some papers off of my desk

Snacks I Enjoy:
Jalapeno poppers
Onion rings from Dub's Roadhouse Grill

If I Were a Billionaire, I Would:
Get a mansion, yo!
Ask Warren Buffet to help me design my investment portfolio
Hire Lynette to do my hair and makeup every morning, right in my house
Take the family on a grand tour of Thailand
Instantly become The Good Daughter-In-Law

My Bad Habits:
I don't floss as regularly as I should.
I tend to pick and scratch at things. Ick. Even I know that's gross.
I have a bit of a potty mouth.
I am distractable.
I procrastinate.

Places I've Lived:
Greenbelt, MD (tiwce!)
Gambrills, MD
College Park, MD
Silver Spring, MD (twice!)
Chieng Mai, Thailand

Jobs I've Had:
Receptionist (twice)
Kmart Grill hash-slinger
Retail clerk (twice)
Bank teller
English teacher

I tag Amy, Penelope, Andrea, Sue, and Jill. I would tag ALF, but she hates blog tag.


Sue said...

Ooo, a tag! I'm thrilled!! :-D

I will post this on Monday, because I already said I would be blog free this weekend. But, I'm stoked. This is gonna be fun!

What is a Potsticker? I know what a potstick is (wooden spoon, or so we PA people speak)...

The price of becoming a good daughter-in-law is steep these days, huh?

Christine said...

Potstickers are wonderful. They are little Asian dumpling things. Mmmmmmm.

And, yes, the price of being a Good daughter-in-law is steep. I cannot afford it. But as a billionaire, I am pretty sure I would jump right to the head of the line.

I shall go do this blog tag. I don't know other people on hmmmm...I will email it or send to a few so maybe they will come sign up and read.
Dinner can wait. Leanne had pizza for breakfast, baklava and coffee for lunch. Some mother I am.

Ooh thank you for the tag! I'll get on this as soon as I get a minute.
By the way - what is a hash-slinger?
(Sorry, lost in translation again heh!)

Christine said...

Amy-Well, pizza makes an excellent lunch, and baklava and coffee sounds like a delightful breakfast. So she's just international and reversed.

Penelope-A hash slinger is a cook at a cheap, greasy diner. You're frying up hash & eggs and sausages or whatever, and just slinging it onto the plate from the grill as fast as you can, all day. The Kmart Grill is so small that the same person takes the order, cooks it, serves it, and rings it up. All in a tacky, polyester uniform, back then, too. Not a glamorous job, by any means, but if you are 18 it is ok. Especially since the kind of men who eat at a place like that are especially appreciative of an 18 year old.

Just sayin'.

ALF said...

You're the best!

Although this one looks like fun and I just might do it. Maybe.

ALF said...

And yes, potstickers are freakin' awesome.
