Michelle tagged me for a fun little meme, I have never seen this one before, so here we go.
4 things I did 10 years ago: (1998) - Can't find my journal from this year so I'm going off memory - SCARY....
Watched Frank Sinatra perform in Las Vegas ( this might have happened in 1997 ), Don Rickles opened and cracked racist jokes about everyone including - the Irish.
I had finally transferred from Community College to National University and was dating a guy who was also attending National and was a teacher. He turned out to be a total a$$ and broke up with me on Valentine's day.
Lived with my good friend Panda, drank mudslides every night after work and spent alot of money at the Cabazon outlet mall.
I went on a blind date with a guy (set up by my mother with our accountants' son, her selling point was that he had a good job and made good money) who had been beaten so badly with the ugly stick that it was just plain scary. Jacked up teeth, stunk and was sweaty. He tried to hold my hand after dinner and I said " Oh, no Thank-you". OK, at least I was polite.....in a rude sort of way.
4 things I did 5 years ago: (2003)
Left a job where I was traveling every other week for days at a time throughout Southern CA, Nevada and New Mexico.
Started to worry about why we weren't pregnant yet after 3 years of not being on birth control and being, ahem, newlyweds who spent a lot of time in the bedroom. I started looking and seriously thinking about going back to school and started my research where I finally applied in 2004, started in 2005 and then graduated in 2007
Watched my little brother marry a beautiful, kind hearted and sensitive woman who has become the sister I never had and always wanted.
Left KROQ's Inland Invasion concert to go meet a beautiful little boy named Cole Patrick, my nephew. My heart forever changed. the very thought of him brings a smile to my face.
4 things I did yesterday:
Paid $4.09 a gallon for gasoline (OUCH).
Paid $5.00 + tax for a subway footlong (Italian BMT on Jalapeno bread, spinach, cucumbers, carrots, jalapenos, oil and vinegar) which I ate 1/2 of for lunch and the other 1/2 for dinner.
Made homemade egg burritos for my supervisors little surprise breakfast buffet - she had her last day of school and will graduate with her MBA, next weekend. She has been amazing and supportive of my career change and has turned out to be a really good friend. I made 5 whole wheat ones filled with egg, spinach, jalapeno cheese and salsa and another 5 using regular flour tortillas with egg, spinach, pancetta and garlic. Amazingly, I also made it to work on time.
Our Nationwide rep ( who has been bugging me to move my 457 and 401(a) accounts back to NW from AIG) opened up to me about he and his wife's IF challenges and wanted information about our agency. Amazing, truly amazing how many people are going through this horrific health problem preventing great people from becoming parents.
4 shows I love to watch
Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations ( I know, what a surprise). Another mad crush that I LOVE to watch is Jamie Oliver, I'm a sucker for a cute boy with an accent - especially a British one and Jamie fits the bill.
Re-runs of Friends and Sex in the City
Run's house - totally hooked on it. Let's not forget how much I love all 80's music, even a little rap.
How I met your mother and New Adventures of Old Christine - both shows make me laugh out loud! I also love Weeds, The Tudors and Big Love.
4 things I love to do:
Read for pleasure
Make people laugh
Be an inspiration
Send people cards in the mail, so nice to receive something other than a bill and there is nothing quite like the written word and seeing someones familiar penmanship. LOVE IT.
**This was fun**
