Cathy's Mulier Meme

Cathy tagged me for this, so I better do it cuz I don't want to make her any more cranky than usual. Plus, it's a busy week around here and I don't have much time to blog...and hubby has been hogging the computer for some crazy paper he has to do for school (at least it's on Design of Experiments instead of the DaVinci Code!). I miss school, but then there's that "careful what you wish for" thing.

Here goes, for what it's worth:

What I was doing 10 years ago:
Working at Boeing in Research and Development. Best.job.ever.

5 Snacks I enjoy:
*Brownies, which would be my last request for a meal if I'm about to be executed
*Baby Ruth's before they *improved* the recipe
*Just about any bar my aunts bake, sans carmel of course
*Toll house cookies, also a last meal request
*Italian gelato

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
*Pay off my house and maybe buy a different one...or two
*Make some large charitable donations, like fund pro-life clinics that are right next to abortion mills and support the fledgling Chesterton Academy
*Go back to school for something fun, like Catholic Studies and history
*Spread the wealth around to family and friends

Five jobs that I have had (where I managed to not commit hari-kari):
*burger flipper
*garnish girl - don't even get me started on this one
*bank teller
*accounts payable
*cash office
*housing redevelopment authority
*financial analyst of international grants/contracts

Three of my bad habits:

Five places I have lived:
*White Bear Lake, MN
*St. Paul, MN
*brief stint in Hudson, WI
*Beaverton, OR
*Seattle (Everett), WA

I'd tag people, but bet they've already been tagged. If I'm wrong and you haven't been tagged, then I tag you. That's almost circular logic :)

For yoru 5 jobs entry that uniform is appropriate for each of your jobs!

That's is me in my bank teller uniform!

Mairin :o) said...

"*garnish girl"

That's the coolest job title.

"*Brownies, which would be my last request for a meal if I'm about to be executed"

Yeah! I hope to make some this week.

"*Baby Ruth's before they *improved* the recipe"

Why do they do that? I used to like the $100,000 bar, back when it pulled dental work out (and almost pulled teeth too.)

Last night I went to meez to get a cool animated avatar like yours. I was all dressed up in an aloha shirt and a jester hat, registered, received a confirmation email, and today their system has no record of my registration or my email address. Darn.


swissmiss said...

Alright, you guys are all tagged (AA, Mairin and V). Don't make me commit hari-kari!

V: Garnish girl!??? I'm not a politically correct gal, but this was the worst job and a horrible job title.

I've had problems with Meez just because of my very slow dial-up, but finally got it to work. I had a mad scientist avatar but it got blown away when I created the current one...even though I had saved it too. Looking forward to the avatar with the Hawaiian shirt or whatever craziness you come up with :)

I just made some brownies on Monday and they were from a box mix from Aldi. Total yuck. I can't believe that you could screw up brownies, but even my hubby didn't eat them. Yetch!!!

Vincenzo said...

The only box mix that I liked was Dr. Oetker Organic Chocolate Fudge Brownies.

ArchAngel's Advocate said...

I haven't had brownies in some time (Girl Scouts are pretty tasty thought...). I understand that Alice B. Toklas used to make a mean brownie too...

Swissy: Re: the last sentence: Huh?

Garnish girl? Swissy, are you telling us you were a lap dancer?!?

ROFL! Aren't you glad you did this meme? LOL!

swissmiss said...

My last sentence or the last comment? It would be almost circular logic because if they aren't tagged then I tag them, so they essentially are tagged...

Lap dancer? Um, no. I worked in the kitchen of a restaurant and when the cook made whatever slop he was sending out, I got to spruce it up with sides and garnishes. Hence the oh-so-drippy name. The place isn't in business any more...proof that there is a God!
