I’ve been tagged by Mike Says for this get to know you meme. As usual there are rules and they are:

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Working as a support technician for the Great Retail Empire;
Getting used to living with a special someone;
Starting to put that special someone through cosmetology school;
Figuring out what to do with the rest of my life.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
1. Cover the Japanese maple and other flowering plants in an effort to help stop them from freezing tonight when the weather drops below freezing;
2. Go to Radio Shack and pick up an RCA-to-3.5mm adapter;
3. Drive safely to Little Rock for an “UnderBear Party” tonight;
4. Visit with friends from all over the state that I don’t get to see that often at said “UnderBear Party” tonight;
5. Attempt to not drink so much alcohol at said “UnderBear Party“.

3. Snacks I enjoy:
I’ve been attempting to cut back my “snack” intake these days. But I would have to say:
Butterfinger candy bars. Not sure why. There’s something about them that tastes good and fills that snack void.

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Not let my family or anyone else know I am… somehow;
Anonymous donations to causes I care about;
Anonymous donations to people I care about;
Buy up all the land around me to stop it from being developed;
Anonymous donations to random passers-by;
Travel to random locations with the husbear;
Spend a little on myself.

5. Three of my bad habits:
1. Not being able to take a compliment;
2. Taking some of my outside-the-home frustrations out on the husbear;
3. Leaving things unfinished, as in: “Ooh… shiny…”

6. 5 places I have lived: (in no order whatsoever…)
Actually, these are in order…
1. Apopka, FL (18 years)
2. Searcy, AR (5 years)
3. Fayetteville, AR (1 year)
4. Rogers, AR (4 years)
5. Pea Ridge, AR (6 years)

7. 5 jobs I have had:
1. Tattoo Artist;
2. Various positions for the Great Retail Empire (currently an IT Systems Engineer; have been: IT Systems Administrator, Help Desk technician, Field Support technician, Accounting Office associate, Cashier);
3. Massage Therapist;
4. Business Owner with the husbear (a tanning & hair salon in one city; and now a hair salon & a tattoo studio);
5. Server/Waiter.
Bonus: Boy Scout Camp Counselor.

8. 5 bloggers that I wanna know more about:
I dislike this question. The reason I subscribe to the blogs I do is because it’s a peak into the personality of the blogger that I want to know. But in light of the nature of these meme’s, here they are.
1. Homer;
2. Alexander;
3. Brett;
4. Mark;
5. Keith

Bonus: Mike is on the list too, since he started this…

And I’m taking this directly from Mike:

However, I’m breaking the rules here. I tagged, which I normally don’t do – but I’m not going to their site to add a non-sequitur comment letting them know.

They should feel free to NOT do this Meme. By the same token, if you aren’t mentioned, you are free TO do it.

Until next time...

5 thoughts on “Meme-me?

  1. I don’t do—nor to I respond to—the tagging stuff. I did it once, and subjected some fellow bloggers to it, but never again. If there’s anything you want to know about me Erik, feel free to email me privately. I’ll be happy to share.

  2. Though I’m not a fan of Intertubes Memes, I won’t totally be a spoilsport, Erik.

    1. What was I doing 10 years ago? Indulging in every addictive activity you’ll ever see on Dr. Phil, with the exception of injectables. My eyes automatically roll back in my head just thinking about that time. And not in a good way.

    3. Snacks I enjoy: I’m all over President’s Choice Honey-Wasabi Rice Chips these days. And I never say no to the Ice Cream Bears, Ben and Jerry.

    5. Three of my bad habits: America’s Most Smartest Model, leaving my cockring(s) out on the coffee table, loving too much.

    7. 5 jobs I have had: newspaper columnist, software support specialist, structural engineer, ice-cream vendor and pornographer. In no particular order.

  3. After thinking about the post after I did it, I guess Memes really are the equivalent of chain-letters from days of old. Thanks for playing along. I won’t be doing any of those in the future… or at least publicly tagging people.
