Exotic Dancer...Moi???

LiteralDan (aka One-Eyed Dan) tagged me last week, possibly even the week before, and I am just now sitting down long enough to type out my answers.
Hope you spent Memorial Day with your family and remembering those who are no longer with us.

#1-What were you doing five years ago?
Going through a really hard time following my husband's first (yes, he had another one a year ago) heart attack and resulting job loss.

#2-What are/were five things on your to-do list for today?

#3-What five snacks do you enjoy?
Chocolate covered peanuts
Chocolate covered cherries (I'm seeing a pattern here)
Baby carrots w/ ranch dip
Apples w/ caramel dip
Granola bars

#4-What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Go to Scotland
Set up college funds for all five kids
Pay off my mom and mother-in-laws houses for them
Buy a 2009 Chevy Camaro
Send my husband Elk hunting in Montana (while I went BACK to Scotland)
(I know I should have said "feed the children", or "give to charities", and I'm sure we all would, but AFTER I did the things listed above.)

#5-What are five of your bad habits?
I smoke (horrid I know)
I eat HORRIBLY (see #3)
I spend too much time reading blogs
I watch too much reality TV

#6-What are five places you have lived?
Ardmore, Ok
Albuquerque, NM
Moore, OK
Oklahoma City, OK
Um...that's it, no fifth here!

#7-What are five jobs you have had?
Respiratory Therapist
Phlebotomist/ Receptionist at a plasma center
Pawn Broker
AOL Customer Service Rep
Exotic Dancer (okay, not really)

#8-What five people do you want to tag?
I am far too slow to catch anyone in order to tag them! If you want to share, by all means take the questions and run with them.

I think you should definitely keep the 'exotic dancer' in'll keep your friends & family who thought they knew you guessing.:)

Exotic dancer turned writer? I could see that happening! =)

Meg Allison said...

I love your list! And I'm afraid I have the same bad eating habits -- when it comes to chocolate, anyhow. ;)

However, I'd go to Ireland. But I like the idea of taking care of your family first. That's the way it should be. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Meg Allison said...

Btw, I REALLY love your pictures... Gerry and a castle? What a dreamy story I could spin with that set-up. ;)

Corinne said...

LOL - funny.:) This is a great list.

Becoming Me said...

Very funny. Nice to read more about you. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.

Mary Duncan said...

We all have bad habits, chocolate being number one on my list as well. And as for the exotic dancer, I think it fits nicely in what I feel from you (real or not!).

So, any word on the Agent front? Will you be sending out more? I have to ask since I think you should pursue it further and not stop at just one. You can do it if you try.

Keep up the good work!


LiteralDan said...

You should have totally kept "exotic dancer" in there without qualifications, to intrigue everyone. No one said it had to be a paid job or one you did often.

Then, once the buzz is significant enough, write your semi-fictional life story including such tidbits, and watch the money roll in.

I did strip-o-grams in college after I got off of active duty. It lasted a week. I had a female friend in job placement that got me the job. Day 5 had me show up to her apartment where every girl I knew from college was there......and I had to do the strip-o-gram. I realized there were some people I did not want to do that for.
As for winning the lottery and having millions....Buy a lot of land and build a luxury housing addition for me and all my closest friends and family. Go to Europe (why limit yourself to Scotland?). Pay of a lot of friends and family debt. Establish a Simpson family scholarship.

Pretty ironic that you are a smoker, given your past as a respiratory therapist. I enjoyed reading these.
