For some unknown reason...

My comments were not relayed to my email inbox and I had no idea any of y'all commented. Thank you thank you thank you for taking the time to do so. I would've mentioned it earlier, had I known...stupid Blogger. Of course, now that I say that, Blogger will prevent me from posting ever again, which wouldn't be all that different from now actually....but I digress. So, in lieu of yet another actual post, I'm going to do this meme thing that Valerie tagged me with. I think everyone else out in the known blog universe has already done this meme so I'm not going to tag anyone at the end, as per my usual meme behavior. If you haven't been tagged and want to play along, consider yourself "it" and let me know. Here goes:

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

Ten years ago I was 18 and finishing my second year in university (I got an early start. Hurrah!) and trying to stop being a complete idiot. I have only partially achieved my goals for both the former and the latter. I still want to go back and get my Ph.D. and I'm still an idiot most of the time.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?

Write at least three pieces of content for books, read a little of my "for pleasure" book, go check on my mama's cats and change their litterboxes (putting that one off until much later), finish the last 1/2" of stockinette on the Linen Kilt (ravelry link) so I can start the decreasing and ribbing, and try not to play Guitar Hero all day (it is a game inspired by me).

3. Snacks I enjoy.

Popcorn with lotsa butter, kettle chips in regular or barbecue flavor, cheese, and apple based desserts

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire.

Pay off the bills for everyone in my family, set up a trust fund for my nieces and nephew, buy some property, start a charitable foundation for education, and take a world cruise

5. Places I have lived.

Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, all over Florida, Manhattan, Germany, and New Orleans

6. Jobs I've had.

hostess at an Italian restaurant, pizza by the slice slinger, "sales associate" at Banana Republic and Williams-Sonoma, personal assistant, and, currently, I'm a freelance editor/writer and yoga instructor

7. Peeps I want to know more about:

See aforementioned opinion about this. I wanna know more about everyone so c'mon people, now, smile on your brother and get to know one another right now (I know those aren't the exact lyrics but that's what I've got for the moment).

So, yet another blog post sans photos but I'm working on it. Travis was away with the camera but now he has returned so I can start taking photos and stuff again and posting them. Hurrah! I hope all of you are doing fantastic. Thanks for staying tuned in. :)
Transmission Ended

What was it like to live in New Orleans? I have always wanted to go there.
