... and most of the people who read my blog (I know you're out there, my statcounter tells me so) don't comment, so I don't know them enough to tag them specifically. If you're not Chris, consider yourself tagged and let me know where to read the result. Yes, Renee and John, this means you. :)

Questions

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was searching for the appropriate kindergarden for my teeny Vampire, who due to health and neurological issues *and* being particularly bright and creative at the time was proving very difficult to place anywhere that wasn't going to drive him insane (and/or the teacher, but that's the teacher's problem).

What were you doing a year ago?
Desperately searching for a doctor who could stem the tide on the Pirate's rapidly approaching total blindness. We'd been searching for nearly ten years, unsuccessfully. Tenth year's a charm - we found a fabulous cornea specialist who not only cleared up his nearly-destroyed cornea, but also found his cataracts. The Pirate can read and drive again, and we are ALL unbelievably grateful.

5 snacks you enjoy?
  1. Premium Ice Cream from Izzy's, Grand Ole Creamery, Haagen Dazs, etc. Favorite 'standard flavor' combo: Chocolate Zin and Italian Strawberry from Izzy's
  2. Macadamia Nuts
  3. Pomegranates
  4. Seriously Dark Chocolate - 75% or higher
  5. Garlic Bagel Chips
5 songs you know all the lyrics to
  1. I can still sing all the lyrics from the *entire* "Thick As a Brick" album by Jethro Tull. Nothin' wrong with my long term memory, I guess!
  2. The Pirate and I can sing the entire score of "Wicked" by Stephen Schwartz. I'm the soprano, nowadays.
  3. "Something More Than This" by October Project
  4. "Wanting Memories" by Y.M. Barnwall
  5. "Moondance" by Van Morrison
I do feel that only 5 can't possibly cover even a scratching at the top of this category!

5 things you would do if you were a millionare
  1. Correct the spelling of "millionare" (is "anal retentive" hyphenated?)
  2. Buy two houses, one here and one in Ireland
  3. Set up trust funds for all my loved ones
  4. Travel, lots
  5. Set up a literacy campaign... I've taught hundreds of kids how to read, and have pretty strong feelings about how things should work.
5 bad habits
  1. Blowing off exercise (I'm with you there, Chris, and raise you very little, because I'd have to put down my knitting and get out of this chair)
  2. Tuning people out when I'm reading/at the computer
  3. Staying up way too late at night and only getting 3 hours of sleep
  4. Being impatient
  5. Procrastination
5 things I like doing
  1. Reading
  2. Knitting
  3. Emailing with my Internet Friends
  4. Cooking with my mother
  5. Hanging out with the Vampire (he's the coolest kid EVER) and the Pirate (when he's available)
5 things you would never wear, get new, or buy new again
  1. Any non-natural clothing item
  2. Any other soy sauce than San-J
  3. Any spices other than Penzey's
  4. Saturn cars
  5. High heels

I'm safe!! Altho I had some deja vu reading your list. ;p

Woah, I didn't even think food or cars... That takes things in a whole different direction. Hmm.

Any Ford vehicles - they've all done me wrong in the end.

Anything from the Sharper Image - it might look cool, but it'll break real soon, so don't get too attached.

Birds of a feather... especially if the feather is made out of yarn. :)

I guess I looked at that question as having three separate categories. Or perhaps being such a food snob just led me to twist the meaning to suit my own evil ends!

I've seen things at Sharper Image that tempted me, but every time I think about actually *buying* something, I always think of some yarn that I want more. Saved from the pains of planned obsolescence by my total inability to withstand the call of my own particular Addictive Substance...
