Next select five people to tag (Sorry!):
If you have not been tagged for this one, please consider yourself tagged, and let me know when you do it so I can list you. This is called delegating responsibility, people.

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was beginning my second semester of my freshman year of college. It was cold, and I believe we probably had about 20 inches of snow on the ground. I was happy, but in a manic, crazy kind of way so I don't know if that counts. It was the last time that I had a large group of friends that I hung out with, drank with, cried with, and got into mischief with. I was single, which meant that I spent a lot of time on the prowl, cherishing every Red Lobster dinner I could manage to squeeze out of the cheap frat guys. Because I generally refused the midnight booty calls, I spent a lot of time at Burger King. Valentine's day was coming so I had a guy from back home lined up just in case--it turns out the steroids both killed his brain and made him very angry when my roomate laughed at him for being a phys-ed major so that V-day was, um, bad.

I was also working part time at a deli, making sandwiches and trying not to kill the owner's 18-year old daughter who decided not to go to college (because she couldn't get into any) so that she could manage the deli. Her idea of managing consisted of sucking her boyfriend's face in the back while she yelled out random orders and told all of the employees how stupid they were. It's funny that on the day the electricity got knocked out by the snow, she wigged because she couldn't figure out how we were going to calculate diner's bills without a register. She, my friends, was a certifiable jackass.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Praying that this stupid PhD thing would be over soon. Worrying about my brother who had taken ill again. Basically, exactly what I'm doing now.

3. peanuts and almonds mixed with raisins

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics:
I'm going to give you song groups instead of individuals because I tend to learn the lyrics to all of the songs by particular artists

4. Buy/build a house and decorate it with real furniture and matching everything
5. Start up a chain of wonderful communities staffed with kind, caring people to house, employ, entertain, and educate people with mental disorders and disabilities
