10 October 2005


Well, courtesy of Ellen's blog, I have been tagged, Here goes:

10 Years ago:
Yucky painful. One of my closest friends (and huge crush) was about to die in a car crash. The crash happened 10 years ago tomorrow. The death 10 years ago Wednesday, and yes, I still think about him. And it.

5 years ago:
I had just started grad school and was stewing in one of the two worst jobs I've ever had...at the Stein.

1 year ago:
It was the week before I got married. I was fretting because my deadbeat sister put off her dress fitting until the last minutes. :)

skipped church because the whole "searching for a home church" is exhausting, went to the mall with my hubby, sisters, bro-in-law, and niece, spilled coke on niece, bought her a spanky new outfit (secret ploy to get her in the trends), ran into friends jaime & jason, came home, did yardwork, fed the ducks in our lake, sat out on patio and watched the sunset. and then, erm, went to bed.

5 snacks I enjoy:
-calamata olive and cheese on crackers
-reeses peanut butter cups
-graham crackers
-cheese popcorn
-ice cream milk

5 songs I know every word to:
-"Phantom of the Opera"
-"Sometimes by Step"
-"Message in a Bottle"-by the Police--we used to sing it in music class
-theme song from Greatest American Hero
-"Dust in the Wind"

5 things I'd do with 1 million dollars:
-Give a matching gift to the organization I work for because people like to give when it's match...like you're giving twice as much
-Save a bunch
-Start a Disney fund to go to D-world every year
-Pay off the morgage

5 places I'd run to:
-the top of Pike's Peak
-around and around the backyard with Sunny
-Bill's side of the bed to snuggle...then return to my side to sleep
-under my fuzzy green blanket
-a little birdhouse in my soul

5 things I'd never wear:
-a jean jacket with jeans
-high top sneakers
-a thong
-socks with sticky-outy seams

5 favorite TV shows:
-Sex and the City (TBS version)
-Celebrity Poker

5 Biggest Joys:
-the 3 minutes before I fall asleep when I twitch involuntarily and Bill knows it's time to push me over to my side of the bed so I can fall asleep
-singing loudly in the car when I'm alone
-coffee with friends
-my box'o'fun
-the "whoosh" in my soul that God puts there for seemingly inexplicable reasons sometimes.

5 favorite toys:
-front-loading washer & dryer
-pogo ball
-DDR dance mats
-new laptop

The Rules:
1. Go into your archive.
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag five other people to do the same.

my sentence..."i have reached new levels of anxiety at work."

My, my. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Hrmmm, I tag Jaime, Sarah, Shelli (if she hasn't already done so), Rockstar, & dear hubby if he still remembers the password to access his blog.


Shelli said...

Is a jean jacket with jeans bad? Am a breaking a fashion rule. Well...its not just me, Jaime has broken it too....

so there!

Was that "birdhouse in my soul" a little shout out to Might Be Giants?

Not only TMBG, but the theme song of Greatest American Hero!!! When that song played over a scene in The 40-Year-Old Virgin I laughed my pants off, but I was the only person in the theater to do so. I think I was the only person in the theater over the age of 21 (I'm 30).

Karen said...

while you're at it, leave the nightlight on inside the birdhouse in your soul.

ha ha, yes, that would be a big shout out to TMBG.

I have already fulfilled my tag responsibilities....but I didn't do that "5th line of the 23rd post" thing....uh...so here it is:

"In my Franklin planner I had 3 major tasks that I wanted to complete today, but so far have not even begun to work on the 'A' priority task [ok...so I opened the file at one point today.....]."

hmm....that seems to happen a lot

Greatest American Hero tune - loved it. Even liked the show. That had a bigger affect on our culture than the, like, four shows it lasted for.

(I mean, who doesn't know that song...)

Nice to think about it again.
