Last night, my wife came up from the basement (where we keep the computer) where she was maintaining her Farmville plots & pets, and said “did you know that you have fourteen comments?” I had no idea, and was appropriately flabbergasted. That is certainly a record! I also learned that I'd been tagged in the “5 things about 5 things.” chain. Thanks to Shannon & Gregg, I'll get to that in just a minute. But I also learned something disturbing. I was expecting that one of the comments was from me, but it never showed. Another comment on another Blog never arrived, so I deduced that when I'm using my laptop (with weak wireless), my comments aren't getting to where I'me sending them, so a lot of you haven't seen that I've been by. Frightfully sorry; I have been reading & commenting, but it hasn't always registered, I'll try to just comment from the land-line connection from now on. And now, on to the chain:
Where was I five years ago:
Five weeks into my relationship with Andrea.
Just moving out of a rented room, into a solo place (the rented room was awful for someone who'd had a place, but I moved in a hurry, & needed to land somewhere.)
Working 4-10:30 AM, stocking. Great job, miserable hours.
Recovering from my first winter in 12 years (I'd been on the West Coast).
Deepening my studies of the Ancient Mysteries.
Where would I like to be five years from now:
Published, and making a livable income from writing.
Negotiating a movie deal from one of my novels.
Recording music for fun & profit.
Sending Calli to Kindergarten.
Enjoying good health with a healthy family.
What was on my list to do today:
Go to work.
Take out the garbage.
Read Blogs, and hopefully have my comments get to where I send them!
Write a response to the “5 Things...” chain
Read-up on my Benefits.
What five snacks do I enjoy:
Peanut Butter Cookies.
What would I do if I were a billionaire:
Build a home studio.
Have a house in the country.
Build homes for my folks, sister & nieces, and mum-in-law.
Fund animal shelters.
Tap-dance my fine self out of my retail job!
And now to tag 5 Bloggers for this “5 Things...” meme.
Cheers, and I'll see ya soon!
