a meme

I rarely do memes but since Cravey was adament, here's one now:

What were you doing 10 years ago?

I'd been working at Emory for 8 years at that point and had been "horsetraded" to a molecular biologist for just over a year to get some work done on a new project for my boss. So that meant I had two bosses and one was a real ASSHOLE. He'd burned through 6 people in one year and Personnel would no longer send applicants his way, which is why I was elected to work with the dick. I was not happy about the situation!


What were you doing 1 year ago?

Pretty much the same thing I'm doing now. At that time I had a girlfriend so that was a difference but I have the same house and same job--I do have a new car since then.

Dave, maybe the reason you can't always remember your name is that you are on sugar overload!!!

Interesting list. Aren't you glad you did it? You know, for the longest time, I thought my son was playing a game called Age of Vampires until I saw the box. Silly.

I don't think anyome wears those running shorts anymore...thankfully. Then there is the eating candy thing....and the fruit loops and 2-5

Great meme answers! I don't know what half of the snack things are as we don't have them in the UK (at least under that name).

My digi camera is my favourite toy for sure. Closely followed by my swords!

I am thanking the Greek Gods that you decided to refrain from ever wearing tube sox & 70's running shorts. Now if we could only do something about your penchant for wearing thonged speedos at the beach (wink, wink). Tee hee
LOL, LOL...Love yoyr answers Dave...(Surprised you said you had a girlfriend THEN....no more?...If that's too personal, I am sorry.....)
Hershey's....YUM!
I like the things you would do if a Millionaire....except 'hide from everybody'....LOL
Good Meme!

Great Job!

I was "tagged" a few days ago, and I am yet thinking up the questions.

I just realized what "being tagged" meant!!! in blogosphere!

Great list..Pringles are good! And I am really glad you won't wear tight sweaters. They look so silly!
tiff said…

I rarely do memes either, but I am glad you did. Very entertaining, and a few answers came as a surprise.
