I'm It

Well, today's a milestone. I got tagged for the first time. I'm not so sure about these things because it's really just a 21st century chain letter, but in the interests of letting all you readers learn more about me....

Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot. (1) (insert name here) (2) Hits from 'da Blog (3) Rex L. (4) Aunt B (5) W. I'm not tagging anyone new because they don't read me so they'd never know I tagged them.

What were you doing 10 years ago? Stacking wood in a furniture factory. I was the new guy they hired from the temp place so I got the dullest job in the plant. And worked with the dullest guys in the place. I only lasted a week. The whole thing was very demoralizing because I had just graduated from college and was having the hardest time finding work. After that week in the factory I decided to become a substitute teacher. It was way more rewarding because I got to give my brother's friends detention.

What were you doing 1 year ago? Recovering from the flu. That was the nastiest I've felt in a long time. Like a week long hangover, but without the nice buzz to look back on fondly. Coincidentally it was also the first time in 10 years I didn't have a flu shot. I was first in line this year.

Five snacks you enjoy: pizza rolls, peanut butter, raisins, Snickers, and bannannas.

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics: I'm really bad at remembering song lyrics, or even really listening to them. I just hear the music and don't pay much attention to the lyrics. The only ones that come to mind are: The Pussycat Song, Margaritaville, Violent Love, I'm In Heaven, and various Christmas ditties.

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire: Pay off the mortgage, buy a better car, throw a huge party, acquire the whole Star Trek DVD collection, and expand my library

Five bad habits: Just about all of my bad habits are attributable to lazyness. I'm not even going to bother to expand on that.

Five things you like doing: Swing dancing, reading, exploring new places, spending money, being the boss.

Five things you would never wear again: I got nothin' here beyond my old hiking boots. And my dam t-shirt. (The dam t-shirt was great. Our student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers made them. They had a beaver on front and he was saying 'It's just one dam project after another.' I think it just made us all feel a little rebellious.)

Five favorite toys: Ipod, GameCube, cell phone, baseball bat, and my rubber duck.
