That Meme Thing What's Been Traveling These Parts As Of Late

TAGGED! by Cowboy The Cat!

The rules:
Answer the questions about yourself. At the end of the post, tag 5-6 people and post their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog (something along the lines of "Hello! I found your blog inquisitive! Please check out my blog! It is about the daily happenings in the life of a park ranger! --- or something). Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer.


What was I doing 10 years ago?

Crap, I dunno. I was temping, I think. I was dating MizSplotchy. Most importantly, I was preparing for the Rapture that was coming in the year 2000.


2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order)

a) I gotta do this meme, because CTC did an awesome job on my story virus and if I don't do this today I'll feel like a festering potato.

b) I'd like to wrassle with the kids a bit when I get home, or play cars, do something fun, etc.

c) Tonight I'm meeting with the four main actors of my upcoming short film, together for the first time! I'm a little nervous.

d) I'm taking my camera with me. After the actor meeting, I want to revisit the location I really liked on Spaulding and take some more pictures. I also want to see what it looks like on a weeknight (I was there before on Sunday).

e) I might snap a few photos of negative space signage as well.



3) Snacks I enjoy:

Wheat Thins

Ghirardelli Chocolate Caramel Squares

A knifeful of creamy peanut butter

Brownie bites

Pistachios


4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

a) [acts of altruism placeholder]

b) Assemble an orchestra of 250 acoustic guitars, arranged so I can spontaneously direct groupings of guitarists to play certain notes.

c) Build a kickass adult-sized combo jungle jim and funhouse, not like those crappy ones you find at state fairs

d) Do a series of self-financed feature films

e) Work on only things that are creatively/emotionally rewarding, or are integral to "a)".


5) Places I have lived:

Springfield, IL

Carbondale, IL

Chicago, IL

Brookfield, IL

What can I say? I am a denizen of the Land of Lincoln.


6) People I want to know more about:

In the spirit of CTC's Random Weblogs feature, I am going to randomly think of blog URLs and tag the people I find there.

That whole rapture thing did not go as planned, did it?

I am glad that MizSplotchy was there to break your fall.
