Nonsense About Me

Soilman tagged me to answer a few questions so here goes...

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Living in Memphis working a job I hated. I won't get into it but it was just awful and the people were just awful and I'm pretty sure it scarred me for life. Does anybody have a violin?

My to-do list/What I actually did
Weed the entire back garden and plant a tree. What did I actually do? Weeded about a 3 by 3 foot area. It's bindweed!

Snacks I enjoy
Chocolate, and Chocolate, and anything with Chocolate on it.
Things I would do if I were a billionaire
Eradicate bindweed

3 bad habits
Eating chocolate, swearing, procrastination

5 places I've lived
Jeez this makes me feel like a loser. I've only lived in 3 places. Memphis, TN, Nashville, TN, Chicago, IL

5 jobs I've had
French fry cooker at McD's. Man it was horrible and really did a number on my teenage skin. Plasma processor - ew. Sandwich maker which I hated because I was afraid of the big meat cutter. Secretary at a generic drug company until I was fired so that the owner could hire a skanky girl at the bar where he hung out. Lab technician, lab technician, lab technician...

5 people who have interesting blogs that I'd like to tag (no pressure if you don't wanna)


  1. Gina: Love your new magnolia! Ann is a beauty! I have only lived in one town my whole life...I don't consider that being a loser but then again, everyone else in the world probably does. You are positively worldly.

  2. layanee - thanks! i sure hope I'll love Ann, too. However, it's going to be 20 degrees tonight so im pretty sure she wont be nearly as happy living here come tomorrow.

    Gina, thanks for giving me something to write about today!

  4. Hi Gina. This is great! I agree with Heather. You've given me a very good assignment for next week's blog. It will be fun.

    What exactly is a "plasma processor"? Sounds icky..

    I enjoyed reading about your past you make eveything sound so funny.

  5. A colorful life, Gina :)

    Are you going to visit me and collect your E for Excellent blog award ? Come on over.

  6. I'm scared of those meat cutters too. Lost a bit of a fingertip in one...and yes, I threw away the food I was cutting up at the time!
