Lifetime Meme

i got tagged on this meme by Ginger, so here goes.

[Warning: i have a very boring life.]

10 years ago: i had just graduated. It was summer and i was spending most of the time with my biker boyfriend

5 years ago: i was temping at Brobeck in San Francisco. And no, i don't remember ever having met Jennifer the Apprentice runner-up, although she worked there too. Betty and i went dancing at the same club every Saturday, where we got in free and got free drinks the whole time. Dating Colby the first time-around.

1 year ago: Just moved to Sacramento. Sleeping on a futon on the floor.

Yesterday: Took the afternoon off to visit with my friend's family in Dixon. Her mom was sick and i brought some flowers. Afterwards, watched X-Men 2 on DVD.

Today: Made coffee. Watched Forbes on tv. Plan to buy a vacuum and/or play tennis with Megan. BBQ tonight at a cute boy's house.

Tomorrow: Nada. Sleep in. Church.

5 snacks I enjoy: Doritos spicy nachos. Sun-dried tomato Wheat-Thins with lite garden veggie cream cheese. Tillamook mint chocolate chip ice cream. A haas avocado salad. Chewy granola bars.

5 bands that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs: i can't think of five. i can sing along to almost any AC/DC or Frank Sinatra tune, though.

5 things I would do with $100,000,000: Get out of debt. Buy a sweet car, like a convertible Benz. My mom, dad and brother would get a bunch of money, and i'd donate a lot to my High School too. I'd travel to all the places i want to see, like Japan, South America and back to Europe.

5 locations I’d like to run away to: Portugal, Prague, the South Pacific, New Zealand, Amsterdam.

5 bad habits I have: The first four are the usual bad habits. i also sometimes say "what" when someone's talking, even though i heard them perfectly well. i have no idea why i do this; it's like an involuntary thing.

5 things I like doing: blogging, dancing, tennis, painting, reading.

5 things I would never wear: animal print, a headband, jewelled sandals, a tubetop (agreeing with Lorie) or Muumuu (agreeing with Ginger)

5 TV shows I like: Any sporting event, Conan O'Brien, 24, most anything on the History Channel, Cops. i used to love The Apprentice, but last season was kind of sucky.

5 movies I like: The Wizard of Oz, Arthur, It's A Wonderful Life, All About Eve, Groundhog Day

5 famous people I’d like to meet: Most of them are dead, like Abe Lincoln, FDR, Sinatra, Shakespeare, Reagan

5 biggest joys at the moment: looking forward to tonight, writing a really good motion for work, kicking back with my roomies and Bay Area friends, visiting my parents and hanging out with my bro and my L.A. friends.

5 favorite toys: Legos, Barbie, koosh ball, G.I. Joe, videogames

5 people to tag: Nobody ever does this when i tag them, so i'm going to tag no one and everyone.

I don't get a lot of responses to tags either. Oh well. Arthur wasn't that kooky movie with the gal who marries a dead guy and all the gruesome murders that the dead guy planned, with some help from his sister (who also gets creamed in the end) before the dead guy dies is it? I'm with you on the Wizard of Oz and Groundhogs day, but I'd add Chicago and the Music Man to the Mix. Not sure what would be the fifth. Definitely not Arthur if it is the same one I'm thinking of.

"i also sometimes say "what" when someone's talking, even though i heard them perfectly well".

I do the same thing, and I have developed a theory on why I do it. Because I am so smart, my mind races ahead in a conversation and I anticipate what the other person is going to say. When that person say something other than what i am expecting, my brain can't believe what it is hearing.

My brains thinks that it couldn't have heard correctly so it automatically answers with "What?"

If this theory does not apply to you, I have an alternate theory.

"mint chocolate chip ice cream"

I'll be in town tomorrow. Let's get married.

What? Those movies are lame. Try: Godfather, Godfather II, Lawrence of Arabia, Bridge on the River Kwai, and The Big Lebowski

The "What" thing is a rhetorical device for slowing down the speaker. I do it ALL the time.

You don't want to meat Joe Don Baker?

Posted by: Victor on Jul. 10, 2005

Meet...I mean, you don't want to meet Joe Don Baker? Sorry!

(You can "meat" him too, if you like, but...you know.)

Havning grown up in the '70s I am somewhat of an expert on tube tops. While admittedly tacky, this particular garment is highly under valued.

TACKY??? Nothing says, "Rip this off and fuck me like a rag doll", like a tube top. Absolutely de rigueur for any self respecting hootchie.

"G.I. Joe, videogames"

A chick that digs G.I. Joe and "digital entertainment"? This is sooo awesome!

There is hope for the geeks in this world afterall.
