Been tagged...

by gina, so here we go....

10 years ago, I was 27 and pregnant with my first son. I was sick a lot. I don't remember much more about it.

5 years ago, I was 32 and pregnant with my third child (son). We sold our house and moved into a nasty little rental shack where the bathtub fell through the rotten floor when I was taking a shower with my big, pregnant belly. Fortunately I wasn't hurt. This was one of the darkest times in my life for many reasons.

1 year ago, I was in the midst of a creative fury, perhaps a manic phase?, and created nearly a third of a tarot deck.

Yesterday, I took my oldest and myself to the dentist to get our teeth cleaned, then to the art supply store, and then to Walmart yet again. I was so busy I didn't even get to blog.

Today, I am going to try to catch up on blogging and laundry. I have to go to the bank later to sign the papers to refinance our house at a lower rate and to get some extra money for David to build another garage. Maybe I can hint some more about a pool....

Tomorrow, I'm not sure what tomorrow will be. I'll just take it as it comes.

5 snacks I enjoy: Oreos, Cheetos, Doritos, Ho-Hos, and what else ends with 'o'?

5 bands I know most of the lyrics of their songs: Led Zeppelin, Kiss, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and that's probably it

5 Things I would Do with 100 million dollars: I'd pay off all our stuff and all of my dad's stuff and my in-laws' stuff, I'd set up funds for my kids that they couldn't have until they are 40, I'd give as much to all my friends as I could without any of us having to pay the 'gift tax', as well as a bunch to some of my favorite charities, and I'd travel as much as possible.

5 bad habits I have: emotional eating, picking at my skin, clutter, not really listening sometimes, and obsessing over stuff

5 locations I would run away to:

Green Valley Spa- I've been there twice and it's heaven on earth!
Peru- It seems like a very magical place.
Hawaii- I've been to the Big Island once and it was also heaven on earth.
Iceland- because I'm a geology freak and it has geisers and hot springs.
New Zealand- it looked so cool in LOTR.

5 things I would never wear: A bikini in public (I'll admit it, I'm past those years), A vest (just not flattering on me), thongs because I've spent 37 years trying to keep my panties out of my ass, a white wedding dress (been there, done that), acrylic nails

5 things I like doing: Sex, blogging, photography, gardening, computer art

5 biggest joys of the moment: lots of coffee, hearing the kids laughing instead of fighting, getting some 'me' time on the computer, hearing the quiet rain outside, stretching and releasing tension.

5 famous people I would like to meet: Brian Greene (physicist), George Bush (to convince him to appoint me to the Supreme Court),

5 movies I like: House of 1000 Corpses (gruesomely good if you like that sort of thing), The Big Lebowski, Little Nicky (always makes me laugh when I'm down), any of the Star Wars series, and any of the LOTR series.

5 TV Shows I like: the ones I like always end up getting cancelled, like Joan of Arcadia, but I rarely get to watch a show faithfully. I'm looking forward to the new season of Ghost Hunters on SciFi. I like to watch anything about science, space, etc. and I'll check the History Channel and Animal Planet frequently too.

5 favorite toys: my computer, my cameras, my Corvette, my sewing machine, and my vibrator (!!) LOL

I haven't made my rounds to everyone's blog yet today, but I'll tag bipolar princess, mr g, and sierrabella. But if you really dont' have time to do this, that's cool too! Love you all!


SierraBella said...

OK I did it!
Great, now I see how uneventful my life is!
Loved yours!!!

Chris said...

Great blog! And, great lists!

Have you tried Firefly? I mention it only because you seem to like science fiction, and, in my opinion, it's the best sci-fi show ever.

Rae Ann said...

sierrabella, your life sounds wonderful!

chris, what channel is it on? I need to check it out. And thanks!

Chris said...

Sadly, it was cancelled after only half a season. Because it was on Fox, and they live to cancel good shows.

However, the full series is out on DVD, and will also be shown on the Sci-Fi Channel (I forget the dates).

The creator of the show also managed to find a new home for it, and there will be a feature film out in September.

I am with you on that Supreme Court idea! (smiling) Something has got to be done.

Thanks for sharing a little of yourself. I enjoyed it very much. I am about a decade older. (yuck on the way that sounded)...but I sure can relate to several things you mentioned.

Where do you get this list? both You and Bella have it...perhaps it would make me think some and give alittle insight of myself if anyone was interested. (smiling)

Rae Ann said...

chris, if it was canceled then it was likely a great show! I'll try to find the dvds.

suzie, you're tagged. gina tagged me yesterday. I'll comment on your blog too to let you know.
