I’m a huge sucker for those emails that ask you all sorts of (tame) personal questions like “what’s your favorite color,” “Favorite time of day,” “What is your favorite city,” etc… and then you have to forward it on to all your friends and copy the person that sent it to you. WELL, apparently, in the blog world, there’s similar thing called getting “Tagged” in which one blogger answers a 6 question “Meme” (look this one up, because i still don’t know what the f it means) and then forwards or “tags” another blogger to answer the same question.

Tonight I got the chance to catch up on reading all my favorite blogs and saw that I had been “tagged” by Taiwan Lucy…  (Thanks, Jackie!)   Rules: Each player posts the answers about themselves, then tags five people to the same at the end of the post.

So here’s my answers…

What were you doing ten years ago?
Ten years ago I had just graduated with a B.F.A. in Acting/Theater from NYU Tisch School of the Arts.  I lived in Boston that summer (oy, is that a long story) and was totally lost. By November of 1998, I was back in NYC though, sharing an apartment with two girls I hardly knew,  living in a room that was literally 10 ft by 10ft, and waitressing at a restaurant on Park Ave. called City Crab. Ironically, I hate crab.
Five items on my “To-Do” List:
Just 5?! Jeez. Let’s see…
1) Baby proof the house!…. gate to the kitchen, outlets, toilets, fasten shelves and armoire to the wall, everything.
2) Drop off dry cleaning. Seriously. 
3) Lose 7 pounds by yesterday. Okay, at least by October (going back to Maui for my brother in-law’s wedding)
4) Research and sign up for a music class or My Gym with Baby-Ko.
5) Get Baby-Ko’s new car seat installed.
Snacks I Enjoy:
-Peanut-butter filled pretzels from TJ’s. (4 grams of fat for 11 pretzels. Yes, I look at that bag often!)
-Granola bars
-Diet coke
-Iced Coffee  (I’m trying to diet, people!)
-whatever Baby-Ko doesn’t finish at his meal (shredded cheese, sweet potato, cheerios… you name it).
Places I Would Live:
-Chicago (spring only)
-Surrey, England… just outside of London (where Kate Winslet’s house was in “The Holiday”. Love!)
What would I do if I were a billionaire?
-Share it with family and friends
-Become more philanthropic… find a cause or start an organization that was near and dear to my heart
-Take T-Ko to all the Four Seasons that we have seen on the website and said, “One day…”
-Finish my novel… Write/direct a short film… Be more creative!! (I suppose I could do that all now, but it seems like money would make it a lot easier!)
Jobs I’ve Had: 
Not in any particular order…
Production Assistant
-Camp Counselor
-Cashier at a Pizza Stand
-Television Producer
-Gift wrapper at Williams Sonoma
-Salesperson at Pottery Barn
-Waitress… waitress… waitress…
So glad T-Ko decided to dominate the TV playing X-Box tonight. This was fun. So, I TAG:
Go Nicole Yourself,  Simon Metz, Creative Type Dad,  Self Made Mom, and Alli B! (You don’t have a blog yet, but you should!)
