Lazy posting

I haven't been feeling 100% well for the past couple of days. I'm not sure if it is some actual illness or as Rob suggested just exhaustion, but either way I have decided to heed his advice and spend today lounging on the couch. Luckily there are good books to be read, good tennis to be watched and fun posts to be posted -- a meme of course.

I was tagged by Becky for this one meant as an easy way to get back into blogging and frankly I think it is all I can muster today. Here goes...

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was living in Manhattan on 36th St between 1st and the river and working at Ziff Davis in mid-town as a circulation manager for MacWorld, Computer Shopper, and PC Magazine International magazines. I had the world's easiest commute -- only a 15 minute walk and I was loving life in the city during the week and weekends spent in Redding, CT with Rob. We had been together about a year 10 years ago today. It was a very happy time in my life.

Five snacks I enjoy in a perfect, non-weight gaining (non-braces wearing) world:
Ice cream -- my favorite is soft-serve vanilla with some kind of topping like M&Ms or Snickers
Movie theater popcorn
Cashews
Tortilla chips and guacamole
A mixed bag of candy from ones of those places that lets you fill your bag with your own mix and charges you hundreds of dollars per quarter pound.

Five snacks I enjoy in the real (braces wearing) world:
Frozen yogurt -- my favorite is Stoneyfield Farm Creme Caramel
Really cold, but not frozen grapes
Teddy Grahams
Tortilla chips and guacamole
A few miniature size peanut butter cups or peppermint patties

Five things I would do if I were a billionaire: (Since shopping really goes without saying for me I'll just assume that is a given)
Start a film festival for women film makers
Purchase an apartment in Manhattan
Join NetJet
Donate large amounts of cash to international children's charities
Build "Green" affordable apartments/condos

Five jobs I have had:
Snack bar at Westway Beach Club
Costume shop shopper
Fund raiser for Texas Campaign for the Environment
Gap store associate manager
Circulation manager

Five habits:
Rubbing my eyes
Checking my Blackberry
Spending and not saving
Getting up early (earlier and earlier the older I get)
Applying chapstick

Five places I have lived:
Monroe, CT
Ithaca, NY
Dallas, TX
Brooklyn, NY
New York, NY

Tagging Tracie because it is a good post for a busy week.

I like what you were doing ten years ago. Sounds perfect to me. (But then, anything involving living in Manhattan sounds perfect to me.) And I like those bags of candy, too.
