tonight you get a meme

It’s the one that’s been floating all over the blogosphere for the last month or so. Debby answered it earlier and offered to tag anyone still remaining to answer it, so here I go:

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?

Ten years ago my brother graduated from college and Rudi and I journeyed down from Connecticut to D.C. to wish him well. We ended up brunching at a hotel that is mere blocks from where we live today. We also headed back to New London to see Sam graduate from Conn.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (tomorrow, in my case):

  1. Go to knitting group
  2. Send out an email to the friends asking if anyone wants to see Shakespeare with us before it closes Sunday (Hamlet, outdoors, in case you’re interested)
  3. Watch the first episode of Deadwood to see if it’s as good as John claims it to be
  4. Bake blackberry financiers
  5. Figure out where my bike odometer is hiding

3) Snacks I enjoy:

Pretty much anything sweet and/or baked. Ice cream. Peanut butter-filled pretzels. Tortilla chips. Raspberries. Blueberries.

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Travel to see all my friends and then to all the places I’ve ever wanted to go. Buy a house, complete with large claw-foot tub, built-in bookshelves, and working wood-burning fireplace. Pay off all the debts, mortgages, etc., for the family. Give books away to every kid I encounter. Knit and read at the beach for the rest of the summer.

5) Places I have lived: Connecticut and D.C. [Edited to add] and Oregon

6) Who I’m tagging: Bueller? Bueller?
