You people and your farookin' memes. Why can't someone I don't like send me one of these things so that I can easily avoid it? Little Miss Chaos Theory decided to smack me with this one and because I like her not only for her site but because we have actually conversed in email and she fucking rocks, I will do this again. Please note, Ruth, I'm scowling the entire time. I am, however, correcting all the grammatical errors because they really do bug the crap out of me. I can't even concentrate on my answers until I've done that.

Heeeeeere we go:

What I was doing 10 years ago:

Ten years ago...1995...what a fucked up time in my life that was. I was still naive enough to have faith in people and think they were all well intended. I was still stupid enough to excuse people's rudeness. I was about to embark on a journey of the absolute worst decisions I'd ever made because I was naive and because people are assholes who like to take advantage of others. I did learn very much from it all so it wasn't a total wash.

Five years ago:

Five years ago, 2000. I was still suffering from the results of a bad car accident a year earlier not only physically but financially as well. The accident was not my fault but it took three fucking years before I ever got my settlement. In the meantime, I paid out of pocket for everything. I was also dealing with shitty roommates, (that reminds me, I need to continue those posts), and starting to make decisions based on this time in my life as well as the previous 5 years of incidents. My 20s were a very rough time for me...but, again, I learned a hell of a lot and that's why I don't regret anything. I am, however, much harder on people and much more reserved with my feelings and emotions because of these things.

One year ago:

As if to give me my final lesson on how people can be complete assholes, I was about to embark on one more journey into rudeness, hypocrisy and expectations on the part of others despite how well they veiled the invitation. From this and all the previous experiences, I have learned not to make excuses for anyone anymore. If you are rude to me, I may not tell you but I won't associate with you anymore. I don't give a lot of leeway to anyone anymore. I used to give three chances. Now I give one.


Worked my ass off at a part time job. Got home and stressed the rest of the night about getting this full time job that I really want and need.

Five snacks I enjoy:

Snacks? Hmmm. Not much of a snack type person. I eat almonds simply because they are supposed to be good for you. Sometimes I eat chips. Sometimes popcorn. It's hard to answer this because what some people consider snacks, I might consider a meal on any given day. Example, say I was hungry and had a small bag of chips. To me? That makes lunch. I think it's pathetic to sit around and shovel food into your mouth for no other reason than to deal with boredom. That's all snacking ever seemed to be to me.

Five songs I know all the words to:

Too many to list here.

Five Things I would do with $100 million:

Laugh maniacally. Buy property. Fix my car up and put extras on it. (It's an older car but I really like it so I wouldn't need a new car.) Apply to as many customer service jobs as I could and tell customers what I think of them; mostly I would do this in restaurants and bars. Tell every rude person who comes crawling back with their apologies to bite me.

Five locations I would like to run away to:

I'm in one. Ireland, Italy (Venice), Iceland, some remote island.

Five things I like doing:

Sleeping, swimming, driving, eating, snowboarding.

Five bad habits I have:

Smoking, baiting idiots, (just like Ruth), conducting social experiments more often than people would ever know or guess for my own personal pleasure, sometimes being lazy. That's only four but I don't care.

Five things I would never wear:

Again like Ruth, what everyone else is wearing, ho' clothes, a mumu, pith helmets, sandles with socks.

Five TV shows I like:

Just about anything on the following channels: Discovery, History, Animal Planet, Court TV, National Geographic.

Five biggest joys of the moment:

I'm here, my cats, the fact I have some savings, I have all my physical abilities and appendages, I'm not an idiot.

Five favorite toys:

Computer and all things computer associated: MP3 player, digital camcorder, digital camera, etc. etc. etc. Also, my boogie board. I would say skis and snowboard but there is no place to do that here so they sit in the closet, waiting. I miss them.

Re: 100 million

Er... you forgot to helicopter me into town. I'm just sayin'.

Thanks for the compliment - back at you. I just couldn't resist tagging you ;-) We are quite alike in a lot of ways I think. It sure is a big joy not being an idiot - wish I had thought of that one!
