tag, I’m it

I was tagged by Grumpy Frump, which is great timing because I have a bad case of blogger’s block.

What were you doing 10 years ago?
When I was little, I wrote a diary entry about what I thought it would be like to be in “colledge first grade.” Once I got there I learned that it’s actually called being a freshman in college. Anyway, that’s what I was doing ten years ago.

What were you doing one year ago?
Pretty much what I’m doing now: Working, hanging out with my peoples, cupcake tenting, and deriving immense satisfaction from reruns of I Love the 80s on VH1.

Five snacks you enjoy:
1. Mini eggs.
2. Great.
3. Now, yet again,
4. I can’t get them
5. out of my mind.

Five songs you know all the words to:
OK, I’m putting the iPod on random and picking the first five songs that I know by heart. This has the potential to be fairly embarrassing.
1. The Dangling Conversation by Simon and Garfunkel. I like this song, but I sort of hate the people in it. Somehow the two of them can’t make their relationship work, even though they’re clearly freakin’ made for each other. “You read your Emily Dickinson, and I my Robert Frost,” and yet you’re incompatible? If I found two people who both enjoyed sitting around reading those poets, I’d force them to marry each other. I’d force them together the way Petey forced those two poor saps together on the log on Fat Camp.
2. Spin the Bottle by the Juliana Hatfield 3. Very high school song, from a very high school movie (Reality Bites), and I first heard about Juliana in a very high school way (Sassy magazine, R.I.P.).
3. I Don’t Want to Wait by Paula Cole. Yes, the Dawson’s Creek song. I knew my iPod would betray me. I used to annoy Mark by singing the beginning, the “doo doo doo doo” part whenever I thought he was being melodramatic.
4. Past the Mission by Tori Amos. No comment, really; what dysfunctional teenage girl didn’t like Tori Amos?
5. The Lady is a Tramp by Ella Fitzgerald. I’ve always liked this song: “Social circles spin too fast for me; my hobohemia is the place to be. I get too hungry for dinner at eight, I like the theater but never come late, I never bother with people I hate…”

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
1. I suddenly feel like I’ve answered these questions before.
2. I’d get all the movie channels and never leave the house.
3. First I’d have to buy a house.
4. I’d buy a Ford Escape hybrid.
5. I’d quit my second job permanently, take a year off of my regular job, and travel everywhere.

Five bad habits:
1. Procrastination
2. Biting my nails
3. Chewing pen caps into OBLIVION
4. Not answering my cell phone, ever
5. I think Michael Ian Black is a little overly snarky. What do you think? (Can you tell I Love the 80s is on as I’m writing this?)

Five things you enjoy doing:
1. Being with my family and friends
2. Car dancing
3. Living room dancing
4. Reading
5. Buying products

Five things you would never wear:
1. A class ring
2. A top hat
3. The Scream mask
4. A dead monkey
5. A bonnet (Insert the picture of me in first grade dressed as a colonial person for Colonial Day at school, which involved more coloring in pictures of Thanksgiving food than killing Native Americans.)

Five favorite toys/games:
1. Moods, but no one will play it with me.
2. Taboo
3. The running game that came with the old school Nintendo. Remember the mat?
4. Drink whenever Carrie Bradshaw makes you embarrassed to be a woman.
5. The fast money round on Family Feud. I would LOVE to be on this show, but I know I’d be mean to my family. I wouldn’t be like, “Good answer, sweetie!” when the question was, “Name a famous John” and some dumbass relative of mine ruined everything with, “Uhhh… John… son and Johnson? Yeah! Johnson and Johnson! Baby powder!” No, I wouldn’t be patient; this is my moment on the Feud, people. I’d be like Monica on the Friends episode where they bet their apartment playing that trivia game: “RACHEL! USE YOUR HEAD!”
