Tagged, too

I see a lot of my blogging friends getting tagged with this, and I got tagged by Terry Towery at http://awriterofwrongs.blogspot.com/
I'm not going to pass it on since I don't want to make someone do it more than once, so if you'd like to this lil questionnaire, by all means, share info about you! I love reading about everyone else.

Question 1: Where were you five years ago?

1. Well, it was May of 2005, so I was newly recharging my writing batteries with two stories I had begun in April of that year.

2. Spending every weekend at Scarborough Renfaire (which I spelled wrong and am too lazy to look up), at which time I sat both days of the weekend at a picnic table in FULL Ren gear with a pack of pencils and a writing tablet from the faire's open to close, working on my stories and ignoring my family (parents and sisters).

3. Driving a rickety truck I was too afraid to wash because the dirt held it together. It had no A/C and a vinyl bench seat. IN TEXAS.

4. Working at the job I still have, but I liked it then.

5. Living in a small town 40 miles from Waco.

Question 2: Where would you like to be in five years?

1. In a house of my own. Renting blows.

2. Working on another best seller... (yanno, after I've had a couple already)

3. Living moderately with a sense of security.

4. Behind the wheel of a '57 Mustang.

5. Above ground is something I'd settle on at this point.

Question 3: What is on your to-do list today?

1. Breathe.

2. Eat.

3. Go to work.

4. Write some more.

5. Go to bed.

Question 4: What snacks do you enjoy?

1. Chex Mix.

2. Chex Mix.

3. Animal crackers (mostly their heads).

4. Chocolate.

5. Chex Mix.

Question 5: What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?

1. I'm sure I'd still write.

2. Create a financially stress-free life for all friends and family.

3. Buy a new body.

4. Travel a lot. To places I can reach in a car. I have an illogical fear of dying in a plane the moment I win the lottery, so no more flying for me. Then again, a plane would probably just crash into my new house.

5. Self publish if I wasn't already. I'd probably just buy a publishing house for all my friends to use. :-)

Loved these! And I see a Chex mix fascination ;)

I'm so glad so many are doing this, I love hearing all about everyone.

Terry Towery said...

I gotta tell ya, my to-do-list sucked -- but it was still more exciting than yours! ;)

Just kidding (sort of). I like Chex mix, too. But I forgot them in my snack list (although I don't know which one I would have bumped!).

Jemi Fraser said...

I want that '57 Mustang too! We could have matching cars :)

And why do we all eat the heads off the animal crackers (I assume it's not just the 2 of us!). One of the great mysteries of life ...

Christi Goddard said...

Jaydee - Chex Mix is my lifeblood.

Terry - I lead a ridiculously boring life these days.

Jemi - I think it's the 'start at the top and work your way down' sort of thing. Or maybe by removing their heads, we keep them from screaming as we devour their bodies and limbs.

Christine Danek said...

Great responses. I love how you kept throwing chex mix in there.

Aubrie said...

Great answers to the questions! Chex mix is yummy, huh?

And I love your goals.

Mel Chesley said...

Renn Fairie!!!! Yes, I just called you a fairie. Hehe! I'm in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) and I know how it feels to sit around all day in full garb. Fun in'it? :D

Anonymous said...

Ooh! I hope you become a billionaire. (And not just because I'd get to use your publishing house.) ;o)

Hannah said...

oooh, buying a publishing house? that's a really good idea and wouldn't have thought of that.

Susan Fields said...

Chex Mix...yum!

Christi Goddard said...

Christine, Aubrie, and Susan - I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Chex Mix is my lifeblood.

Arnold - thanks for chiming in :-)

Lass - Renfaire is teh bomb

E Elle and Palindrome - I'd totally publish all my friends. If they, yanno, didn't suck or have bad grammar, punctuation, and spelling. :-)

Bite the heads off the animal crackers. It could be worse. You could bite them in the ars
