Meme Me

I tagged myself for this meme posted by Tom at Science, Religion, and Miscellaneous Babble. 'Cause it looked more fun than putting away 3 loads of laundry which is what I should be doing.

The Questions (and my responses):

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Seriously? 10 years ago? Ittyboy is still nursing at night. Cut me some meme slack.

I vaguely remember being fairly newlywed, living in this same city (but on the other side of town) in an apartment... working as a Princess (don't ask), doing local commercials and spokesmodeling at conventions... heady stuff.

Name 5 things on your to-do list today:

  1. Buy Bittyman a shirt and tie for his preschool graduation on Friday
  2. Go to the party store to pick up Transformers birthday items
  3. Learn 2 psalms for this weekend's masses
  4. Pick up a few items at Fresh & Easy
  5. Choir rehearsal at 7:30pm
What things would you do if you were a billionaire?
  1. Pay off all our debt
  2. Buy a house with a big backyard for the Heroes
  3. Make a generous donation to our humble parish so they can fix everything that's broken
  4. Send the boys to private Catholic school
  5. Set up college funds for the Heroes and my 19 nieces and nephews
  6. Send my parents on a world cruise
  7. Take a really, really, really long vacation.
Name 3 bad habits or qualities:
  1. I leave the toilet seat down (a bad habit according to Bittyman)
  2. I steal the covers (a bad habit according to Dan)
  3. I'm too prideful to seriously list three bad qualities
Name 5 places you've lived:

Interesting answers!

Looks like a birthday boy is set to have a great birthday:0)

Please elaborate if you can:

Executive Assistant to the President.

Which type of pres. was this?

In your "to-do" answers, you reminded me of my choir and how much I miss them. I really should get back to them, you know. They are a great bunch of people!

Well, thanks for participating, and I can wrap-up my comments as Streisand's "Somewhere" concludes. I love that song, even though I'm not a huge fan of hers. I think I may even have it somewhere (excuse the pun).

Executive Assistant to the President of a very large advertising agency in the Washington DC area. It was my first job out of college. Beat out several hundred candidates.

Hated. Every. Second.

I was so miserable I sent off my demo to a cruise ship producer on a whim. 3 months later I was singing and dancing at sea!

Oooooooh. I hope you win that Billion, then your long vacation can be going on the world cruise with Dad and me. Hahahahahah. And yes, you absolutely hated that job in D.C. I remember it, well.
