randomosity at its best

i know i ought to be working, or planning exactly how i'm going to bake three different types of cookies tonight with different oven temp requirements, as well as bust out a lunch for jab this week, wrap up the caramel squares, package up all the cookies and said wrapped caramel squares to be shipped out in time for jesus' birthday, carve out time to devote to the Daring Bakers', AND pack for my trip to TN next week. on top of that, i found the cutest crochet pattern that i need to complete by monday night for my aunt's birthday. ah well. all things will fall in place i'm sure. there are only 24 hours in a day and i require 8 of those hours to sleep or else i'm a beast but trust, i always find a way. some thing will get lost along the way, like combing my hair or just not emailing important people back. it happens! and so i will take the next 11 minutes to fill out this meme that Kirby of The Knitting Type tagged me for, before i need to rush out to SuperFresh to buy groceries.

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 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. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
i was 21. completing fall semester of my senior year at Radford. dreading going home because i just felt so stifled after having been able to go out and about in college. it was both a very happy yet disatisfying time for me.

2)What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
bake cookies
make a beef stew
get cracking on a crochet project due on monday
finish packaging up caramels
take pictures. i haven't taken proper pictures in a long time.

3) Snack I enjoy:
chocolate chip cookies and milk

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
there was a time i would've said i would make my sisters trust fund babies but i've decided that they don't now the value of the dollar, and now i believe they should know what it's like to work hard. so no, i would not give them a portion until much later in their lives. i would however put my grandparents up in much more comfortable environments (altho, i think they're quite taken care of now, thankfully.), take care of bills and some close friends and phamily will not have a want in the world. once all that is taken care of, i would travel. take a pastry or cooking course or two. read a good book in a cafe in paris. hold hands with jab in italy. get expensive spa massages and facials in switzerland with big k. chow the eff down with buu in vietnam. go on african safaris. visit new zealand. spend a month in india. and never be cold again.

5) Places I have lived
San Diego, CA
Bangkok, Thailand
Manila, Philippines
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Radford, Virginia

6) 5 peeps I wanna know more about:
i'm not going to put anyone down, not because i'm not interested in knowing about them but because there're seriously so many great bloggers out there i'd love to know more about. if anyone wishes to partake in this fun meme, please by all means do so and let me know.

  1. Glad you took time from your 24 hours to fill this one out--fun to read. :) I am SO with you about moving somewhere never cold. Especially right now, as I stare out the window at the BLIZZARD I will be driving home in. Oh, Chicago.

  3. I love these things.

    I'd love to travel freely if I was a billionaire...but, even though I complain all the time about the cold, and it's snowing in NYC right now, I'd never want to live somewhere it is hot all the time. For one, I'd get bored...and secondly, what would I have to complain about? ;-)
