Five More Things...A Tag Long Overdue

So my Mom tagged me several days ago, and has been on my case night and day since then for me to do it. So here goes.

5 Things I Was Doing 10 Years Ago

1. Excited to be 21, and old enough to sing Karaoke with my best friend Brad in Bars instead of just at the Pizza Barn.

2. Going to as many rock concerts as I could. My favorites that year were Aerosmith with Spacehog opening for them, and watching Everclear, Marcy's Playground, and some other band that escapes my memory right now on top of Silver Mountain in Idaho. Nothing like a concert on top of a mountain!

3. I started to go back to Church. For a little over 2 1/2 years, waxing my car and playing basketball on Sundays was more appealing than dressing up and sitting in a pew. Best decision I ever made. I might have never met Lisa if I would have stayed away any longer. It was amazing to me to find out that I missed having the church in my life so much.

4. I would wash my car every 3 days, and wax it once a week. I had the cleanest car in the Tri Cities hands down. Whenever the kids in the neighborhood didn't see me washing my car, they would think that I had fallen ill.

5. Meeting and dating as many girls as I could. I never really dated much in high school, and had a lot of catching up to do. Looking back, I would have to say I definitely made up for lost time.

5 Things on my to do list today

1. I WAS planning on working OT tonight before my old man decided that he wanted to work it.

2. Now I will go home, watch the girls while Lisa goes off to Orchestra.

3. Watch The Office and 30 Rock with our good friends Ian and Lora.

4. Tear down and throw away any political sign that hasn't already been properly disposed of.

5. Do some work on the 1971 Nova sitting in my garage that is soaked with awesomeness. Last night it was new door moulding. Maybe some engine cleaning tonight. Or keep the house clean for Lisa. I would rather be doing to former, but I have a feeling I will be stuck with the latter instead.

5 Things I would do if I were a Millionaire

1. Pay off our house, our van, and the credit cards we owe money on. Oh ya, and open up Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt shops all over Eastern Washington. (Sorry wet siders. Once you stop getting Christine Gregroire elected, you can share in the Golden Spoon goodness.)

2. If my Grandma was going to live any longer, set her up in the nicest place that money could buy.

3. Take my family on a nice trip.

4. Pay it forward to the 20 people lined up behind me in Wal Mart at 10:20 on a Saturday night.

5. Since my Mom is already a Millionaire (She did tag me for this after all, so she already has her money.) find a nice family whose head of the household is in need of a good high paying job, and train them to take over one of my many Eastern Washington Golden Spoons. Once they are trained, I will give it to them, and they will be able to prosper.

5 Places I have lived

1. In Kennewick on Grande Ronde Road when I was a wee little baby.

2. An apartment in Richland off of Aaron Drive. (Still very young, and my parents had not yet realized that Kennewick rules and Richland drools.)

3. 226 E 8th Ave Kennewick, Wa 99336 (The house that I cried and cried when my parents sold it. when I was 8 years old.)

4. 3 W. 3rd Ave, Kennewick. The first abode of Lisa and I. It was less than 400 sq feet, had no foundation, a plastic stand up shower, a kitchen floor that no matter how many times you would mop it it would still be dirty, and drafty windows that would let ginormous spiders in that we would have to check for in our bed sheets when we went to bed every night. Don't believe me? Ask my wife. She has never told a lie in her life. On the bright side it was only $200 a month plus utilities.

5. 5716 W 14th Ave. Still in Kennewick. My current residence. I don't plan on leaving this one for quite some time.

5 Jobs I have had

1. Paperboy.

2. Burger King.

3. Mall Employee. I worked at Eddie Bauer, The Gap, The Sunglass Hut, and Columbia Center Mall information booth.

4. B and B Printing.

5. Chemical Technologist, Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

5 People I tag

1. Lori

2. Nicole

3. Ian

4. Janice

5. Libbie

Rules: Each player answers the question themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment letting them know that they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Let the fun begin. And now my mother can get off my back.

so, would dad and Shawn and I get our own Golden Spoon? We better. I was going to write about getting grandma into a good place but I figured to figure her into the family good works. I bet you would also get that new Nova completely restored.
And shame on you stinky Donald to to want to hog all the OT for yourself. We have to eat too you know?!?

Lisa said...

You're in luck....I cleaned the house all day and the Nova is calling your name.

I love you.

Drive home safely :)

My Three Sons said...

I didn't know you worked at Gap :) And I hope you got all of those political signs down, I don't need the visual reminders of what transpired Tuesday!

I'll kill you for tagging me . . . . just for that, I am gonna be in love with your favorite new pres. BO from now on.

Janice said...

Too bad your food tastes don't match up with your political views. Blue Cheese doesn't give you cancer! And, the after taste of Aspertame is the main reason I drink a cola product. Oh, and guac keeps you regular.
