I've been tagged

Mel over at Knitting and me tagged me with this:

Ten years ago I was:
I had just graduated from Smith College. I think by this point I had managed to turn my boring summer internship into a 1 year temp position at SmithKline Beecham as an analytical chemist. I was filling out grad school applications and living in North Wales, PA with Kathy and Dana.

Five years ago I was:
I was in grad school (Brown University) and suffering from severe depression. I was a mess and it was a really difficult time for me. I was living on my own in East Providence, RI. This is when I got Kitty who was my anti-depression cat. I love her and she was a big help to me.

One year ago I was:
Hmm. Not much really changed between this year and last. Living alone in Gaithersburg, MD. Working for the Army as a post-doct. I guess this time last year I was just getting really into the MeetinDC thing. I think I am over it now. I haven't even looked at an event posting in ages. It was a lot of fun while I was into it and I did make some great friends.

Five snacks:

  • Anything that comes in chip form
  • Ice cream
  • Nestle treasures
  • Cheese and Crackers
  • Diet Coke

Five songs I know all the words to:

This is tough, I know all the words to a million songs, Many I really wish I could get the brain cells back from but I am going to change this to my favorite / personal theme songs

  • Miami - Counting Crows
  • American Girl - Tom Petty
  • Rockin the Suburbs - Ben Fold's
  • Cecilia - Simon and Garfunkel
  • Don't Suppose - Erasure

Five things I would do with $100 million:

This is Hilary's favorite game. We played it all through Shep and Jen's wedding. $100 is great because it is huge money even after taxes.

  • Go to spa (fat farm) for a month and collect thoughts and get in shape
  • Pay off all my debts
  • Give $10,000 each to family and friends
  • Set up scholarship / trust fun for nephew and best friend's baby
  • Quit job and open yarn store

Five places to run away to:

  • Why am I running away? If it is really bad I would go to my parents
  • Am I going somewhere fun? London and Edinburgh
  • Dream vacation? Alaska
  • Just for the weekend? To Lewes, DE to hang out with Kris
  • If I had a guy to run away with? St. Martin

Five things I would never wear:

Tough, I kinda wear anything . . .

  • Lizard or animal prints
  • Anything religious
  • A shrug - so unflattering on someone my size
  • Fake nails (I don't know if that counts as wearing)
  • Yellow or orange. I think I look awful in all shades

Five favorite TV shows:

I watch an enormous amount of TV so I am going to split this into still on air and off the air

Off air now:

  • Coupling
  • Twin Peaks
  • Sex in the City
  • Seignfield
  • Gidget

Still on Air:

  • Monk
  • Inuyasha
  • Mystery!
  • CSI
  • Scrubs

Five biggest joys:

  • Being praised. I love being told I did good.
  • Starting a new knitting project
  • Hanging out with my best friend and her baby
  • Laughing with friends
  • Eating a really good meal

Five favorite toys:

  • Knitting
  • DVR (Comcast's version of Tivo)
  • My car
  • My digital camera
  • CD burner

Five people to pass this on to:

I am not really sure how this is supposed to work and I don't really like chain letters. So I am gonna post the names of some blogger that I read and if they read this an want to join in, I would love to learn more about them.
