memory meme

Cheryl has tagged me for the 'Memory Meme', so here it is ...

What I was doing ten years ago - 1995.
Graduating from my MSc course and looking for a GIS job; getting over a disasterous not-quite relationship with Steve The Bastard; moving back to my parent's house (yet again); exploring my blossoming interest in spiritual healing and reiki.

5 years ago - 2000.
Getting to the point in my relationship with Crazy Tom where things were becoming just too crazy. He'd just come back from Glastonbury and was in the middle of a three week period of not speaking to me. At all. Nice.

1 year ago - 2004.
Er, looking back, probably having some sort of breakdown. At least, I was afraid to go downstairs in case anyone came to visit and I had to speak to them, and shortly after that my lovely doctor prescribed anti-depressant medication. (Which I have now come off. Yay!).

Yesterday - Thursday 14th July.
Blogging about tea. Going to the beer festival at one of our two 'locals'. Discovering that Belgian Raspberry Beer is actually much nicer than it sounds.

5 snacks I enjoy:

  • Pork scratchings
  • Pickled onions
  • Chocolate anything
  • Wine
  • Pizza

5 songs I know all the words to:

  • Don't Come the Cowboy With Me Sonny Jim, Kirsty McColl (Cheryl, the more I find out about you, the more we have in common!)
  • Hopelessly Devoted to You, Olivia Newton John
  • Coward of the County, Kenny Rogers
  • Leaving on a Jet Plane, John Denver
  • American Pie, Don McClean

5 Things I would do with $100 million:

  • Buy a house in the country and populate it with various animals, poultry and children
  • Give some of it away to individuals I know
  • Give some of it away to non-sexy small charities that do good work in difficult conditions
  • Buy the fastest, smallest laptop I could find and update it every six months :).
  • That's it!
5 locations I would like to run away to - Temporarily, not permanently!
5 bad habits I have:
  • I interrupt when I get excited
  • I pretend I don't notice that the cat has been sick and wait for B to clear it up
  • I don't always wash up before I go to bed
  • I pick my nose when I don't think anyone is watching
  • I impulse shop on ebay

5 things I like doing:

  • Walking
  • Sleeping
  • Reading
  • Drinking tea
  • Eating cake

5 things I would never wear:

  • Anything bright orange or lime green
  • Stiletto heeled shoes (Boots yes, shoes no. I fall over.)
  • A thong
  • A pill box hat
  • A wonderbra

5 TV shows I like:

  • MASH
  • Star Cops
  • Moonlighting
  • Spooks
  • Probably anything that's a period drama

5 Biggest joys of the moment:

  • Being married to B - soppy but true
  • Gardening
  • Looking out at the river and knowing it's going places I'll never go
  • Being in the countryside
  • I think you can get joy out of pretty much any moment in time, if you focus on where you are and what you are doing there in that pariticular moment.

5 Favorite toys:

  • Books. I'm an addict. But I'm slowly letting them go and giving them away in dribs and drabs.
  • The computers ...
  • Think that's it!

I'm not going to tag anyone for this one - but if you fancy doing it, leave a link to your post in the comments! :).
