Graduate Knits has tagged me for this meme, which is the Peeps I Want To Know More About meme. Here are my responses.
The rules: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
1) What was I doing ten years ago?
Studying biology and chemistry, thinking about med school, playing soccer, mom to two, choosing to be mom to three and dropping the med school idea.
2) What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:
Pick up my two sons from camping and sleepovers, cut grass, make sure my children bathe today - especially after camping, take a long walk, and set mouse traps.
3) Snacks I enjoy:
Chocolate, but only really great chocolate.
4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Have plastic surgery to make me taller... If that's not possible buy a lot of totteringly high heels. Then "Giorgio" my cabana boy would carry me around because I'll never be able to walk around in them. Giorgio can chase my children too because, frankly, I would look ridiculous chasing children on the playground in Jimmy Choos.
Fly my friends into an exotic locale for a girl's away long weekend. We would coauthor a cheesy bodice-ripper romance novel full of all the schmaltzy lines we have read over the years. Then we would self publish and give copies to all the adults in our family. This would set a new standard for the family authors that I don't think anyone would surpass, er subvert, for a long time.
5) Places I have lived:
Sault Ste. Marie ON
6) Jobs I have had:
Babysitter & Petsitter
Assistant Art Curator at an art gallery
Residence Don at University
Coordinator of Special Events for an arts festival
Researcher for Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee
Chocolate Truffle Maker
7) Peeps I want to know more about:
Take the Cannoli - I love that name. She is opening up a baking business!
Semi di Papavero - Poppy Seeds
So Many Flavours, So Little Time - A New Daring Baker this April
