I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by Donna, and since I think these things are kind of fun (maybe it's because of my unnatural love of lists), here goes:

Instructions: Remove the blog from the top, move all blogs up one, add yourself to the bottom.

Playgroups Are No Place For Children

Tales of An Expat

What were you doing 10 years ago?
Wow. I had just finished up my third year of college, and was in summer school trying to make up for the fact that I had changed my major four times in three years. I figured if I had any chance of finishing college before Chris Farley did in Tommy Boy, I'd better hit the books during the summer. I lived in Tiny Texas Town, USA and has just gotten married to my now ex-husband. We were so busy in school and pretending to be adults that we never realized that we actually had no business being married to each other. We lived in a 900 square foot house that, looking back on it, was ridiculously cheap. Although window unit air conditioners during a Texas summer are a real bitch. I drank plenty of Keystone Light, ate tons of fast food, and was still at least 15 lighter than I am now. Frickin metabolism.


Five Snacks You Enjoy

1. Nutella on anything
2. Cheese

Five Songs That You Know All The Lyrics To:

4. Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order
5. The Road Goes on Forever by Robert Earl Keene

**Like Donna, this is really just a sampling, because I know all the lyrics to most of the songs on my iPod. M and I will be singing, and he'll look at me and say "How do you know that?" I don't know. He retains the knowledge of how to perform calculus equations, and I retain song lyrics. Mine is a far more useful gift, I think.**
