Because I am a total slut for the quiz:

10 years ago I was…
Living in Knoxville, TN in a van down by the river. SWEAR it's true. OK, it was a trailer, but it was horrifying, and it was, in fact, down by the river. The French Broad River. No shit. And, it was on a Bible college campus. I was married to my practice husband, and I was in a constant state of asthmatic stress. I worked at a nuclear power plant in Oak Ridge, TN. That's why my boobs glow in the dark now.

5 years ago I was…
Married one year and 5 months to the Grimace. He had quit his job about 10 weeks prior, and was still apparently attached to the sofa with some sort of mystical adhesive, and saying charming things to me, his worker-bee, such as, "I'm tired of your attitude," and "If we weren't married, this would be over." (I know! I know.)

1 year ago I was…
Celebrating my divorce from the Grimace. I won't be disclosing details of the celebration here.

Yesterday I was…
Working, meeting with my boss for a 1:1 discussion of my job performance (OH how I hate those meetings,) cleaning a house in Avon for $$, shopping for conditioner 'cause I have scary-doll-hair, and getting excited about my trip to see That Todd this weekend.

5 snacks I enjoy the most:

  1. Fresh guacamole and chips
  2. Popcorn and cheddar cheese

5 things I would do with a billion dollars:

  1. Deposit a schload of it into my parents' retirement account
  2. Buy homes and retirements for The Fig, The Numbers, My Matt, and That Todd, wherever and whenever they wanted.
  3. Deposit a schload of it into my VBF and hubby's account for mortgage payoff, college for the kids, and a vacation home for all of them.
  4. Buy apartements in Indianapolis, Chicago, Seattle, and a few cities in Europe. Oh, and a villa in the country in Tuscany.
  5. Give it as presents! WHEE!

5 places ideal for running away to:

  1. Brazil
  2. Italy
  3. Portugal
  4. anywhere in the Caribbean
  5. anywhere with a beach, who am I kidding?
