Only Time

Hat tip: Amigo.

What was going on in your life ten years ago - 1995? You know what's cool about the American school system and the year I was born? I can tell by the number of the year what grade I was in. So in 1995 I would have been starting fifth grade. And my great-grandmother would be gone by August 31st, two years to the day before Princess Diana's death.

What was going on in your life five years ago - 2000? Adolescence. Yeuchh.

What was going on in your life one year ago - 2004? I had one year of college and one episode of anaphylactic shock under my belt. I as working on my EMT certification. And Jim DeMint had just won the primary runoff, so we were kicking his campaign into high gear -way to pay off!

What did you do yesterday- June 30, 2005? Got up and took a shower cause I fell asleep without the fan on. Ran around town in my jeans shorts and work shirt-it was too hot to wear the uniform black pants. Drank some really disgusting 7-Up Plus. Went to work and had a good time, as usual. Didn't blow up at the new girl for screwing up the antibac understock (mumbling to myself after she left and I had to fix it doesn't count). Came home and marveled at the debate. Took another shower and crashed.

What are you doing today- July 1, 2005? Had lunch with my sister. Drove out to the boonies to get some fresh fruit. And in the process, broke in these cute new shoes that I just had to have. Right now I'm watching Plain Truth again. I need to throw my sheets in the wash cause they have chocolate on them.

What will you do tomorrow- July 2, 2005? Shift or two at BBW. I am so grateful that I have a job that I love so much and look forward to going to. And I need to go prebuy Harry Potter at Barnes and Noble, since that's where the midnight party's going to be. If I get off in time, I might go see some fireworks.

Five snacks you enjoy: Well, that's easy. Cheetos. York Peppermint Patties. White Chocolate Reese's. Grilled chicken. And Chocolate Lucky Charms, of course- but that's not just a snack. It's a way of life.

Five songs you know all the words to: Only five? Geez. I suppose I will name the first five that come to mind without hearing the music: God Bless the U.S.A., Lee Greenwood. Blue Skies, Point of Grace. Over It, Anneliese Van Der Pol. That's The Way It Is, Celine Dion. Nobody's Home, Avril Lavigne. This Kiss, Faith Hill. Oops, that's six. Hey, what can I say, I think in music.

Five things you would do with $100,000,000: Buy a cute little house in the 'burbs with some land for my many dogs to run around on. Pay off all my bills. Outfit Harvey with a nice stereo system. Get a domain name and some other fun toys. Start a memorial fund- maybe to help people my age, the ones who are sick but can't qualify for the child funds. I've never thought that was fair, and, well, maybe I could make some dreams come true.

Five locations you would love to run away to: Austria- it's just so beautiful. But the food is great in Italy. Virginia Beach- it's where a lot of my family is. Miami maybe. And someplace in central or South America- I've always wanted to go to the jungle.

Five things you like doing: Adding new toys to my template. Talking politics. Discovering new TV shows. Singing to whatever random music is floating in my head. Making other people wonder about my sanity.

Five things you would never wear: Dark eyeshadow- I look stupid in it. My hair any shorter than it is now. Or for that matter, bangs. Anything skimpy. One of those mascot character outfits like Mickey Mouse- they must be sooo hot. And stinky.

Five recently seen movies that you like: I saw Miss Congeniality at the $1.50 theater. And I finally rented Scooby-Doo 2 after having the poster above my head for months. I tried to watch UHF the other night, but I fell asleep. My VCR isn't working, so I've been watching whatever comes on TV- Jurassic Park, for one. But I have How The Grinch Stole Christmas on DVD- I was in a Christmas-in-July mood.

Five famous people I'd like to meet: Dubya, Michelle Malkin, George Foreman, Amy Grant, Jane Seymour.

Five biggest joys of the moment: My job. I still can't believe how great BBW people are. But then, I love you people too. Austin, of course. Nature- even though it's hot as Hades right now. And just living in America- do you ever stop to think what a privilege that is?

Five favorite toys: I think Harvey would be insulted if I called him a toy. So my Gameboy I guess. Digital camera. Computer- I recently downloaded iTunes to get the Nick Cannon song. And I figured out a way to transfer the songs from Windows Media that were supposedly protected by Heh heh. And- ooh, look, pretty shiny colors...

Five people to tag: Anybody in the mood?

You have a nice weblog. The template is neat and your writing great. I like the way you can share yourself the way you are and write about anything. I can be entertained by your weblog for an hour each time :)

You are really easy to please. I think 100,000 would fulfill all your dreams and you'd still have enough left for treats at Walmart.

This is very insightful.

Ten years ago...I was 15 and going to a military prep school.

Five years ago...well, let's skip that year.

One year ago...I just got my pilot's wings.

Yesterday, at this time, I was at 34,000', singing Bye Bye Miss American Pie with the gang.

Today, I biked 30 miles and shopped.

five snacks - almonds, figs, carrots, prunes, and yams

Five songs - one is listed above, God Bless the USA (love your choice), We can work it out (Beetles), Time in a Bottle (Jim Croce), well, that's four.

Five locations - Japan, France, England, Tahiti, Scotland

Great list! Alice

Darlene's right. I mean, come on: I know you love Harvey, but with $100,000,000, I think he wouldn't mind being retired so you could fly everywhere in a private jet.
