Tagged Like a Snow Leopard (Why Am I Wearing a Radio Collar?)

Nice Melons tagged me, and I was just thinking — I believe someone else tagged me for God knows what, back around the time John was in the hospital and I was going broke fast. But now that my life is in TOTAL working order, ha ha, here I am — and if you’re that other person who tagged me way back when, I will owe you one. Seriously. No fingers crossed or anything.

I’m’a do what Wanda did — or somebody — sorry, you guys caught me on Flaky Friday — and just cut out the old answers and put in my own…

What was I doing 10 years ago?

Working at a Barnes & Noble, trying to claw my way up into management. When I did, it absolutely sucked.  

What are 5 (non work) things on my to do list for today?

Watch as much Wimbledon on ESPN as possible, go run a couple errands, finish Forever Free  (the last book in Joy Adamson’s Born Free trilogy — hmm, note to self: buy Kleenex on that errand) , avoid a relapse of yesterday’s spectacular migraine, work a little on the novel, and listen to “This American Life” on NPR tonight.

What are my favorite snacks?

Bruster’s Cake Batter ice cream, peanut butter Girl Scout cookies, chili-lime tortilla chips with Paul Newman’s pineapple salsa, and cookie dough of just about any kind.

What five things would I do if I were a billionaire?

Pay off Visa, buy a row house in San Francisco and a beach house in Hilton Head, go to Ireland and look up relatives I’ve never met, and keep on buying books. Oh, and follow Jimmy Buffett on tour for a year. 

Where have I lived?

Two small towns and two large ones in SC. For reasons of privacy — you never know who’s lurking — I will only name Clemson as one of them. Sorry.

What jobs have I had?

Part-time bookseller, clothing retail, Clinique, bookstore manager, college bookstore flunkie, and transcriptionist.

Which bloggers/friends would I like to know more about?

To quote Wanda, everyone’s been tagged already! But all of you that visit here.

  1. You are so specific about your snacks! I’m hungry.

  2. pandemonic Says:

    Don’t forget to call me when you move to San Francisco. I know how to cook and clean.

  3. LOL So you owe me one? Don’t sweat it; you had a lot going on.

    You should just buy Visa, and fire everyone who’s irked you.

  4. All right! I too got hungry just by reading your snacks.

    Working in management sucks. I don’t like being responsible for anyone else’s work except my own. Grrr…

    Thanks for playing, m’dear! 🙂

  5. Oooh, what’s your novel about? Don’t answer if you prefer not to talk about your novel, though.

    Feel free to call me when you move to San Francisco! We’ll go clubbing or something.
