I've been tagged.

10 years ago:
1. I was at Virginia Tech on an athletic scholarship. We were sponsored by Adidas, and I returned all of the shoes they gave me for cash. They were ugly, what else was I supposed to do?
2. I was dating a guy whose last name was Smirnoff. I really didn't like him, and I'm pretty sure the feeling was mutual.
3. I adopted an Iguana and named him Holiday. He now lives with my cousin in Florida, and from what I hear he's about four feet long.
4. I had a really stupid haircut.
5. I lived right next door to the school's heavy-weight wrestler. He was absolutely ginormous and smelled like an anus.

Five things on my To-Do List today:
1. Grocery shop. Jared was upset about the can of soup I packed in his lunch today. I don't blame him. It was cream of mushroom, he has no microwave in his office, and I failed to throw a can opener into the bag.
2. Buy some fabric to make curtains for the den. I've said it once and I'll say it again--I'm so domestic it hurts.
3. Think about going for a run, but fail to do so on account of my laziness.
4. Complain about my weight.
5. Clean out my email inbox.

Five things that I would do if I were a millionaire:
1. Pay off our student loans.
2. Pay for our house.
3. Buy my husband a bird dog.
4. Plan a family trip to Disney World.
5. Send Jared and his bird dog on a hunting trip to Alaska.
(I take my imaginary millionaire responsibilities very seriously.)

5 Places I have lived:
1. West Hartford, Connecticut--born and raised. Where everyone plays an instrument (very well), where everyone is the state champion of something, and where every teenager thinks a yearly tuition bill of $40,000 is pretty darn normal.
2. Old Town, Maine. I've heard the paper milled closed down and the town no longer smells like turnips dipped in poo. Definitely a step in the right direction.
3. Dallas, Texas. It was always 110 degrees and we'd hear gunshots almost every night. Jared was like, "Amy, put the gun away."
4. San Diego, California. This is a lie.
5. No where else terribly interesting.

5 Jobs I've had:
1. Jelly donut filler. This was my first job.
2. Sandwich maker. This is the job that made me want to cut my own finger off, just so I could go home.
3. Babysitter with a masters degree. No seriously, my first job after grad school was as a nanny.
4. Affordable Housing Specialist. We had to move because we couldn't afford to pay for housing. Seriously, it's true. (Hi Richard--I miss you!)
5. Wife and Mother extraordinaire. Emphasis on extraordinaire.

Have a good day everyone!

You are very funny. Sometimes I wonder if I'm funny, but nobody ever tells me I am, so I must not be.

So I'm telling you--you are!

Sarah said...

You are funny. I laughed three times in that post - and I need you to teach me to sew. Maybe Trans Atlantic lessons?

joolee said...

Oh Amy.....you're my favorite and my best! Never mind that we've never met.
YOU have a good day!

Jen R. said...

ha ha my to do list is even less cool than that. And I wont do any of it.

akshaye said...

You forgot to put Blogger - extraordinaire on that last list!

Marie said...

1) I totally would have returned the shoes for money too...sheesh, who wouldn't!

2)Smirnoff...maybe that is why you have this unnatural tendancy (as an LDS woman) to want to hit the bottle.

3)Smelled like an anus huh? Is that kind of like a field of wildflowers? Because that it what my husband smells like sometimes...

4) Seriously funny that you sent your husband to work with a can of soup that he a) couldn't open and b) couldn't heat up. Love it!

5) You are so truthful. You are a mother extraordinaire.

Michelle said...

Amy, its been too long! I miss your sense of humor. You are hilarious! Couldn't stop laughing about the can of soup! That's awesome!

my millionaire answer grows more and more boring as I get older AND the stuff we can do with it grows smaller and smaller huh? (WHAT?? only ONE MILLION?!)

gotta love the economy...


Rachel said...

Oh, Amy! Thanks for the laugh! I laughed out loud and so needed that release today!

BTW, Joolee (earlier in the comments)is my BFF (seriously!)

Rachel said...

Okay,I laughed harder, as in I almost desecrated our couch when I read a post from 2006 about a high kick contest you had with your hubby! I feel a lot better, now I suppose I should go potty!

Remember the jelly donut you over-filled for Dad? That must have weighed 5 lbs.!!!
