Rare Sunday Post: Tagged

Tina Lynn at Sweet Niblets tagged me and so here's a Sunday answer to the tag. You have to answer five ways to five questions.

Question 1: Where were you five years ago?

  1. Just purchased current house in outrageous bidding war that left us emotionally exhausted, assuaged only by the equally outrageous bidding war that resulted from the sale of existing house.
  2. Working long hours.
  3. Nursing TWO ripped tendons and sprained ankles.
  4. Considering the consideration of possibly maybe having a child, perhaps.
  5. Graduating from graduate school.

Question 2: Where would you like to be five years from now?
  1. Published, with one or more books already in print.
  2. Working on next books.
  3. Coming to decision that I can quit day job.
  4. Mother of two whippersnappers.
  5. Doing blog tours because my fans love me so much?

Question 3: What is (was) on your to do list today?
  1. Sleep in.
  2. Participate in online writing group chat.
  3. Prepare next few days' worth of blog posts.
  4. Do laundry for work week.
  5. Possibly go to REI and spend crap load of money on super cute green shoes.

Question 4: What five snacks do you enjoy?
  1. Cheese
  2. "Sierra's Trailmix" (M&M's with a few nuts thrown in to make it look like Trailmix)
  3. Cookies -- must be chocolate chip and not fake-out raisins, which look like chocolate chips but so are not (hate raisins for that reason)
  4. Hummus and anything
  5. Cheese quesadilla

Question 5: What would you do if you were a billionaire?
  1. Have several houses/luxury apartments in the following cities: San Francisco, London, Edinburgh, New York, Vancouver, Paris. But main residence would be beach house on California coast. Season tickets to Hibs games, of course.
  2. Go on extended travel tours at least once a year.
  3. Set up tax-protected trust funds for my heirs.
  4. Be philanthropic and call up Brad and Angelina to talk kids.
  5. Never, ever be one of those rich women who walk around in hooker heels and carry small, ugly dogs in their arms.

Oh man! I know exactly what you mean about the fake-out raisins! Chocolate Chip or bust!

I am also with you on the Not being 5.5.

I adore you. Have I mentioned that? I also love hummus. If you become rich, will you please also have a mansion-sized house in Louisville, which you can rent to me year-round, as you'll only need it in May, when you come into town for the Derby (or when you breeze in JUST to visit me because you've missed me so much?)
