mememememememe too

a lull in blogsville has prompted me to jump on the meme train....parika's post made me a joiner!

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I finished school in December of '97, which means in June of 1998, Ollie and I were enjoying a perfect Bellingham summer before our big move to Buffalo for grad school in August. We were both making good use of our chemistry degrees, with yours truly as a bank teller, and Ollie slinging coffee at big bucks (with Chris Walla)! Despite our stellar income level, it was actually one of our best summers, starting our lives together, with really no responsibilities.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
1. go to the gym
2. go to class (ETA, skipped that one! :-p)
3. finish amber's surprise knitting
4. bake cupcakes for amber's last day (tomorrow!)
5. watch the weeds episode we dvr'd last night

3) Snacks I enjoy:
salted edamame, popcorn, avocado on toast with salt and pepper, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (NO raisins) and good dark chocolate

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
quit, pay off my student loans, buy a house on the beach in san diego and a condo in downtown boston, bankroll my family, hire pat to be my full time trainer, get a puppy, take every trip we've ever imagined, spend a weekend each month with my grandma

5) Places I have lived:
monrovia, ca
portland, or
spokane, wa
bellingham, wa
missoula, mt
chicago, il
buffalo, ny
columbus, oh
san diego, ca
boston, ma

6) Jobs I have had:
retail sales (2plus2!)
table busser @ a buffet restaurant (yikes!)
data entry in an accounting department
copy jock
math and chemistry tutor
chem lab prepper and teaching assistant
bank teller
graduate teaching assistant
medicinal chemist
technology specialist
patent agent

Consider yourself tagged, and if you jump on, leave me a comment so I can see your answers, too!
