In which I cave on the meme thing

Apparently I’ve been tagged by Eric AND Jim on the Five Things meme. I have muttered and ranted about memes in the past, but I must admit that I’ve enjoyed reading about the strange pasts and dreams of my fellow bloggers. And is it not better to be an exhibitionist than a mere voyeur?

5 Things I Was Doing 10 Years Ago:

  • Being angsty & pseudo-goth, fighting with my parents about getting my nose pierced, and riding about on the backs  of motorcycles
  • Applying to small liberal arts colleges in order to major in English
  • Dissecting a cat and a fetal pig in Anatomy & Physiology class and realizing that I really liked biology (I wasn’t a feline minion at the time – not sure I could dissect a cat with such glee now.)
  • Teaching swimming lessons at the local YMCA
  • Finishing my very last season of marching band. I played tenor sax and wore a silly hat.

5 Things On My To-Do List Today:

  • Work on fellowship applications in hopes of getting paid next year
  • Enter data & make sure it actually corresponds to my frozen samples
  • Adjust brakes on bike in order to reduce horrible screeching sound while careening down the hill above school
  • Attend SIO Holiday Party…
  • And then drive up to Santa Barbara to visit JEByrnes!

5 Snacks I Love:

  • Whitefish salad on a fresh New York bagel
  • Zabar’s cinnamon rugelach
  • Banana bread
  • Guayaba paste with romano cheese
  • Olives

5 Things I’d do if I was a Millionaire:

5 Places I’ve Lived:

  • In a hut on the shoulder of Mt. Washington
  • Manchester, NH
  • Providence, RI
  • Somerville, MA
  • Brooklyn, NY

5 Jobs I’ve Had:

  • Backcountry naturalist
  • Taxidermy salesperson
  • Construction project manager – with hardhat!
  • Research analyst at an environmental consulting company
  • Research minion scanning lots and lots of slides

I tag Sam, JEByrnes, DN Lee, Kate, and Gila.

    Why does she want to have a species named after herself, aren’t we more than enough punished/teased by the writings on this blog.
