Over a month ago Naomi tagged me to do a Meme. Now Diane has tagged me too. I'd better get on it, eh? Try not to fall asleep. (You might bang your head on the keyboard.)

What were you doing 10 years ago?
Living in Carlsbad with Faezer and preparing to move in with Ang and Lesley. I'd just finished sleeping through my freshman year at UVSC and needed a little break. You know...to sleep some more.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
I was in New York City with Doug and boys while he did his orientation. I'm sure I was sweating and wishing I didn't have to wear a bra. Kinda like right now.

Five snacks you enjoy:
(I'm going to assume this means the unhealthy kind.)

1) Ice cream (multi-weekly)
2) Chug chocolate milk (I enjoy this almost every time I grocery shop.)
3) Wendy's Frosty (fort-nightly)
4) Chili Cheese Fritos (road trips)
5) Plain M&M's (rarely)

Five songs that you know all the lyrics to:
Woah. Where to start...a good chunk of my life has been devoted to this important pursuit.

1) "Somebody" by Depeche Mode (but really...who doesn't?)
2) "Head Over Feet" by Alanis (plus all the other songs on Jagged Little Pill)
3) "Oh L'amour" by Erasure (plus all the other songs on Pop)
4) "Mysterious Ways" by U2 (plus all the other...well, you get the idea.)
This decade?
5) "These Words" by Natasha Beddingfield

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
1) Hire someone to snip all the yucky stuff off the chicken breasts before I cook them.
2-5) Buy some stuff.

Five Bad Habits:
1) Some might say I'm "cluttery" or "messy" but I say "artistic"!
2) I sleep as long as possible whenever possible.
3) I'm a sugar addict.
4) Evidently I squeeze the middle of the toothpaste tube.
5) Using multiple colors in my blog posts.

Five Things you Like doing:
1) Reading
2) Sleeping
3) Throwing pots (not at all the same as smoking pot.)
4) Sleeping
5) Traveling

Five things you would never wear again:
2) tank tops (unless it's over a swimsuit, duh.)
3) Thrift store polyester shirts with someone elses name stiched on.
4) the 58 bikini's I used to own
5) pegged pants (As if anyone needs their butt and feet to look bigger.)

Five favorite toys:
1) iPod
2) cell phone
3) laptop
4) creme brulee torch
5) ice cream maker

4 TV shows I enjoy:

4 Places I have lived:
1. Salt Lake City, Mapleton, Riverton, and Provo, UT
2. Carlsbad, CA

4. Warwick, RI

4 Places I'd rather be right now:

2. Cheesecake Factory, San Francisco
3. Iceberg Drive Inn, Utah
4. Serendipity, New York
(or sleeping in any of the above locations.)

I tag: All of you. Yes, that's right. Every single person reading this boring post. I defy you to out bore me! Now go blog!!!

That was exhausting...I need a nap!

Hey! Nice update to your page! (i do bloglines so I don't come here much.)

Anyway, I just came here to say: NO i did not make that RUDE comment on Debbie's blog! he he. Shame on you for thinking I did! Just kidding. But not as in just kidding, I really did make that comment.

OK next, you are funny. I love that so many of your favorite songs are from the 80's and 90's. I miss you. Do come to visit soon. I looked at flights out there and WOW. Not cheap. If you find me a cheap one (two, I'd have to pay for Isaac) then I'll come and force Dug to fix my teeth.

This is a pathetic novel. I apologize to everyone.

Hey Emily! Your new baby is so so cute. All your babies are so so cute. Anyway, I love reading your blog so that is why I am adding you as a link. I can't believe I didn't think to do this years ago.

When are you coming this way? Make sure you let us know so we can hangout. Tell Doug we say "Hi".

Oh, I love your little book reviews. It's helpful.

I can attest to Em's sleeping habits. When she stays with relatives, she has this cool little technique to increase the amount of sleep she can fit in. When her kids wake up, she kicks them out of her room and locks her door. Then her relavtives get to be woken up by the sound of her kids opening and closing cupboard doors looking for things to eat. We go down there, feed her kids, and generally take care of them until Em wakes up a few hours later. This is why we love her so much.
