Tagged by Kiersten

I’ve been tagged by Kiersten with a miscellaneous meme (blogless called it an Interrogation Meme).

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 5-6 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 the player’s blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

A Meme about Various Things

What were you doing ten years ago?

See below tag.

What are five things on your to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?

Sign up at college for gym
Work out
Pick Will’s girlfriend up and go to baseball game

What are some snacks you enjoy?

Guacamole and chips
Cheese curds, yeah, I can founder myself on those. That’s the reason I learned to make cheese.

What would you do if you were a billionaire?

See below tag. My main concerns would be setting things up responsibly so my family and thier families will always be taken care of. Ireland is my great love so I would find some way to enjoy that. And, since I’ve always put everyone else pretty much first and been the resident caretaker, I would probably be selfish and do spa things and recapture a bit of my youth.

What are three of your bad habits?

Stress eating
Not being organized. I drive myself nuts with this since I like being organized.
Running my mouth. It would be so nice to have people perceive me as an interesting, intelligent, classy woman, but I just can’t keep my mouth shut. I’m searching for some invisible duct tape now to take to Surrey.

What are five places where you have lived?

Sheridan, Wyoming
Hardin, Montana
Killdeer, North Dakota
Grassy Butte, North Dakota
Sacramento, California (California scares me, that’s why I keep deleting my applications to Blizzard.)

What are five jobs you have had?

Truck dispatcher
Forklift operator
Clerk in western store (Most unusual part of that is being a butt model. Christmas time brings in lots of panic stricken men, buying clothes for wives and girlfriends, but they have no idea of sizes. The owner had the girls line up and turn around. Husband would pick one out close to his wife’s size or in between two and we usually got the sizes right.)
Dog trainer I used to raise and show Aussies

What were the last five books you read?

I’ll go with five recent reads since I already did five last reads.

Writing the Breakout Novel Donald Maass
Armies of Agincourt Christopher Rothero
The Age of Tamerlane David Nicolle
Some Writers Deserve to Starve Elaura Niles
Crystal Gorge David Eddings (I love Eddings)
An Osprey book about the Sarmations, which I can’t find right now.

What are five web sites you visit daily (in no particular order)?

Section Sixx (Try to anyway. It’s a lovely little private writer’s site.)
I’m trying to wean myself off reading sites and blogs and write instead so I normally just glance over some agent or writer sites to see if any posts are up I should print off for reference.

Now, if I could just kick my EE habit.

What’s playing on your iPod right now?
Don’t have an iPod, but on the stereo I have a collection of Celtic music going with one cd of various rock songs.

Ok, I will have to think about who I am tagging. Whirlochre, JJ, Evil Editor and Beth Shope. (Since Kiersten tagged WO, I am also going to tag David so I don’t double tag WO if he doesn’t want to be.)


  1. Thank you. WO. A friend of mine took the picture and sent it to me for the blog. I was really looking for something to represent Paladin, but I loved this picture.
