I've been tagged!

Here's my response to the blog tag ....

5 Things I was doing 10 Years Ago...
1. Going to Brigham Young University slowly finishing my PR degree and psych minor
2. Working as an editor at The Daily Universe (BYU newspaper)
3. Being president of BYU's Public Relations Student Society of America -- got to go to Boston! Yay!!! And to Los Angeles, not as cool ...
4. Doing an internship at Novell (Have I mentioned that PR was my life 10 years ago?!?)
5. Starting to be roomies with my BFF Hilary and teaching a bunch of people how to play Yahtzee!

5 Things I Need To Do Today...
1. Finish laundry -- I "do laundry" on Mondays
2. Take my car to the shop
3. Buy kids' toothpaste. They've been out for two weeks and complaining ever since about having to use yucky toothpaste
4. Take someone to soccer -- don't remember if it's Tyler's or Zachary's night tonight
5. Clean. Not that I will, but it needs done ...

5 Snacks I Enjoy...
1. Brownies. Hands-down my favorite, especially when warm, and sometimes w/vanilla ice-cream
2. Candy bars, specifically Reese's Crispy Crunchy bar, Take 5 or Snickers. (Actually, most any will do. :)
3. Pretzels
4. Granola bars -- the crunchy kind, although chewy ones work
5. Wheat Thins

5 Things I Would Do If I Were A Millionaire...
1. Get more space in my home (buy bigger or add-on)
2. Set up some kind of charity. Probably something like Make-A-Wish, which is awesome! Or just contribute to Make-a-Wish.
3. Anonymous donations to random people
4. Travel
5. Get a getaway -- a cabin that's close enough to visit frequently but far enough away to be a getaway

5 Places I Have Lived...
1. Mapleton, Utah (where I grew up)
2. Southern Georgia (mission)
3. Provo, Utah (MTC & BYU days)
4. Kent/Covington, Washington (bachelorette days and newlywed years)
5. Spanish Fork, Utah (now)

5 Jobs I Have Had...
1. Cherry picker
2. Dump-truck driver (very short-lived)
3. Children's reading program at library
4. Pizza Hut
5. BYU Travel Study
6. Events Staff at BYU football games
7. The Daily Universe (BYU newspaper): receptionist, dummier, editor, Web editor, layout, etc. (a new job every semester). This is where I got someone fired for sexual harassment, but that's another story ...
8. Novell intern (twice)
9. High-tech PR professional for Microsoft, SAP, T-Mobile and PogoPet
10. Mom -- worst pay and best benefits :)
Oops, my stroll down memory lane brought out more than 5 ...

5 People I Tag...
1. Anyone who wants to be tagged
2. Anyone who doesn't want to be tagged
3. Everyone else
4. Nobody else
5. Although I'll usually respond, I don't usually pass on tags or hugs or poems or other chain e-mails, even under threat of bad luck or failed casseroles ... :S

Rules: Each player answers the questions themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let them know when you've answered the questions on your blog.

Thanks for playing along. I usually don't pass on things, but I didn't want Heidi's game to fail. I'm surely doomed with bad luck, a short life, and any other curse that I have been given for not passing on emails.

Brown Family said...

Oh the good old days of PogoPet your favorite client. Didn't Gabe help you out with PogoPet?

Why didn't you mention the ghetto of Bellevue where we lived after we got married?

Yes, I have to admit I did just put PogoPet for Paul's amusement. That was the most pathetic client I EVER had to work on. I don't even like dogs, and here I am pitching a site where your dog can have a Web page???

To my credit, I did get them mentioned in the Chicago Tribune. Not bad for such a pathetic .com.

As for the ghetto of Bellevue, I've blocked it from my memory ... :) But I did live in a nice apartment in Bellevue about 5 minutes from work. I'm not sure how I blocked that one out ... except maybe that I only lived in either place for mere months ...

I didn't know you used to drive a dump truck! You will have to tell me about that.
