meme seen on Sandy's blog (but with my answers)

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Ten years ago I was giddily pregnant and growing huger by the moment. I'd just had an unsuccessful attempt at an amniocentesis (my father-in-law said, "The kid paid for the room for 9 months; don't bug 'im") which my doc ordered due to my "advanced maternal age". We didn't want to know the sex anyhow, so that was ok by us. I was readying to take a cruise to Alaska with S who was still working on the "Dam ships" (Holland America Lines). It was a wonderful trip. We were home-ported in San Diego and I was doing the eyeball tech thing. It was a terrific time in my life.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
(There's only half an hour left in today, so I'll give you a combo-list...)
1. Eat something sweet
2. Brush my teeth
3. Go to bed and snore loudly
and on the morrow
4. Make time for a peer-to-peer audit at the hospital where I work
5. Ask my nice bus driver's name before he changes to a different route next week *sniff*

3. Snacks I enjoy
Cheez-Its, bittersweet chocolate, ice cream in many (but not fruity) flavors, potato chips (most any potato product), cupcakes, cookies, nuts (but no macadamias!), dill pickles, guacamole, bacon.

4. Places I've lived
Arizona, California (north and south), Illinois, Japan, New York, Missouri, Virginia.

5. Things I would do if I were a billionaire
Pay off bills for myself and my family, travel, buy Marion a horse, travel, find several places to set up housekeeping, travel, throw a huge party with a massive fireworks display for S and travel. Oh, and donate lots and lots to worthy, underfunded causes which need assistance in helping people and animals to have happier lives.

I'm also copying Sandy in not giving direct tags, but if anyone out there is reading this, please play along and leave a comment to let me know that you did!

I love it when people play along! There is something that I really like about this meme. Perhaps it's the glimple into people, which as blog readers, were are INTO! :)
Did you snore loudly? I hope that for you!
