My turn to be tagged

I've seen this around on other blogs, but never thought I'd get tagged too. Kind of nice to know people are finding my blog!!! I guess it's called a meme - I'm not sure what that means. I got tagged by Keohinani from Hawaii. Let's see if I can come up with some answers:

TEN YEARS AGO: I was working at the same job, but living at home with my parents, which wasn't as bad as you would think. I was dating someone who I thought was the love of my life, and hadn't yet met the real love of my life!!

FIVE YEARS AGO: I was living on my own, in my new house - and very proud of it!!! Sweetpea and I had been dating for about a year, but he had just moved to NJ so we only saw each other on weekends. The phone bills were very high.

ONE YEAR AGO: I was a newlywed!!!! We got married on June 26th, the five year anniversary of our first date. The wedding was perfect. For our honeymoon, we took a Royal Caribbean cruise in the Caribbean for a week, and then spent a week in the Florida Keys.

FIVE SNACKS: Lays Sour Cream and Cheddar Potato Chips, Lindt low-sugar chocolate, cookies I've baked, movie popcorn (so bad it's good!!), anything Sweetpea will bring me while I lay on the couch

FIVE SONGS I KNOW ALL THE WORDS TO: Layla (Eric Clapton), Landslide (Stevie Nicks), Yesterday (The Beatles), Into the Mystic (Van Morrison), Fields of Gold (Sting)

FIVE THINGS I WOULD DO WITH $100 MILLION: Not necessarily in this order - invest wisely, quit my job, renovate the house, give my family enough to live on, donated to American Diabetes Association so they could find a cure.

FIVE PLACES TO RUN AWAY TO: my best friends house, Mom and Dad's house, Mohegan Sun Casino, anyplace Sweetpea is, anywhere but here

FIVE THINGS I WOULD NEVER WEAR: Never say never, but . . .. thongs, spandex, camouflage clothes, rainbow scrunchy (inside joke), my husband's shoes to a wedding (someone did that at mine)

FIVE FAVORITE TV SHOWS: Lost, What Not To Wear, Monk, 30 Minute Meals, Sex and the City

FIVE BIGGEST JOYS: Marriage, my godson, Sundays with no obligations, blood sugar between 80 and 120, matching 5 in a row on the slot machine

FAVORITE TOYS: knitting books and needles (do those count?), my laptop, Blogger for Word (I can now covertly write posts from work), Sweetpea's new remote-control car because it brings him so much joy, Scruffy

FIVE PEOPLE TO PASS THIS ON TO: shoot, can't use Knitting Spaz because Chrissy already did!!! (She knows me so well.) This is actually the hardest part of the whole meme. I'm resorting to surfing my web-rings.

Katie from Melbourne came up on my U Knitted Nations ring.
Kristen came up on my NE Knits ring, talking about a great town in CT not too far from me (but since CT is small, nothings too far from me.
Knitting on Trial came up on my Fiber Arts ring . . . I love the dogs!!!
daesme came up on Beginner Babes, which I'm still in the cue for but it let me surf it anyway!!
Kym came up on Knitty Heads - loved her Cosmopurlitain.

Whew, that's finally five. I'm outta here!!!

oh cool- I've never been tagged before :) I feel so special!

PS- don't be afraid of tempting! it's REALLY easy. It was my first sweater pattern and the construction is a cinch. Just very tedious...

Another good beginner sweater is Glampyre's minisweater...

Hi Karen, thanks for the tag. I was actually tagged earlier and you can see the responses on my Aug. 5 & 6 entries. (I didn't answer everything.) It's nice to hear from a local fellow knitter (I'm in southern RI). Have fun with the knitting and blogging! Also, I made Tie One on this summer (see "Accessories" photo album) and absolutely loved knitting it, and wearing it, and am planning to make another.

Karen - I did't mind getting tagged, even if it did seem like homework! BTW - your sweatpea has the same birthday as The Bob - 9/1 is a national holiday, isn't it?

Okay, so I was being lazy and putting off my meme, but I was going to use the opportunity to get to know my neighbors better. You tagged one of my webring neighbors (Kym)! Hrmph!
