time for a meme

Erika & Tara tagged me, so I'm playing along...You can too, if it suits your fancy.

What was I doing, 10 years ago:

Exactly ten years ago? I was returning from a trip to Portland, to visit family, with Cristi and a 3 week old Alexis. I lived in Southern Oregon at the time and I nearly had a panic attack, going on a 5 hour drive with a newborn. In the following weeks, I was dealt a double whammy: Postpartum depression - before it was the hip thing to have - and a colicky baby. Wait! Maybe the depression was brought on by the 5 hour crying jags...

By summer, my depression lifted and Lexi stopped howling. We split our time between Lithia park and our air-conditioned house on what I remember to be a very hot summer.

Five snacks I enjoy:
  1. Thai Kettle chips
  2. Earl Grey Tea, with raw sugar
  3. Strawberries
  4. Ginger beer
  5. Pickles

Things I would do if I was a billionaire:

I really wouldn't live all that differently. Selfishly, I would travel more and go back to school. (I'm nerdy like that.) Beyond that, I would make sure my family & friends were comfortable, and debt-free.

Five jobs I've held:

  1. Sent out batteries to pager customers; seasonal work. boring
  2. Picked strawberries and raspberries in middle school, saving up for a trip to California with my bff at the time, Shannon.
  3. Bank Teller. really boring
  4. Cocktail waitress
  5. Blockbuster manager

Three habits:

  1. Internet and Wiki surfing
  2. Compulsive reading
  3. Tea drinking

Five places I have lived:

  1. Sandy, Oregon
  2. Portland, Oregon
  3. Boise, Idaho
  4. Medford, Oregon
  5. Gresham, Oregon

I'm supposed to add something new here, but I've got nothing. I'm copying Erika: My favorite jammies would be my red silky ones from Target. Simple and sassy. When I'm not wearing sweats.

I'm also supposed to tag people, but I'm lazy and disobedient. Stephanie? Does your Vegas-addled brain want to play along?

I like earl grey, too!

What is bergamot all about, anyway? More importantly, how the heck do you pronounce it?!

More dish on the cocktail waitress gig, please...

That was fun...I might just be in the mood to do a meme (do you do a meme?)
