It's all about Meme, me

Part of the definition of a Meme is it propagates itself and can move through a culture in a manner similar to a virus. Well I have both. A sinus/cold virus attacked me this week; which, I wish I could get rid of quickly and I was tagged with a Meme from The Jilly. I much prefer the Meme!

So here’s the deal:
The Rules:
Rules are posted at the beginning. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names. Then the player goes to the "named" people's blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog. If you've been tagged, you do the same, letting the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer. Your answer of course, is the answer to the following questions. Here we go!

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Using my superb math skills that would be 1998 – I was running around the country doing seminars, writing patterns and trying to keep my knitting machine/sewing machine business going while debating if I had to go back to work in the “real world” for health insurance, etc. Health insurance won out. The pull of designing and teaching has been getting stronger lately so I’m trying to figure out how to balance a real world job with my passions.

2. What are 5 things on my to-do list today?
Sleep to get rid of this sinus thing.
Work on the lace shrug to wear to my cousin’s wedding.
Snuggle with the boys – always on my list!
Order some Kauni yarn.
Indulge in a wonderfully rich gooey dessert because I’m sick and I deserve to be pampered.

3. Snacks I enjoy:
Duh – rich gooey desserts (see above). Chocolate – the richer the better. Chips and salsa.

4. Places I've lived:
Born in the house I currently live in (I bought my parents house). In between I’ve lived very close to home. College was 3 hours away in Winona, MN and the rest of the time I’ve had apartments or homes in the Minneapolis northwest suburb area.
Summers were spent living “up nort” at the cabin like most good Minnesota kids.

5. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Pay someone to find a cure for cold-sinus things (I’ve got a one track mind today). I would love to have the money to just give away. Find people who need that extra boost to make it to the next level, whether it’s for college, small business, etc – and give them a hand up.
I’d also find way to treat my family and myself: travel to where I haven’t been, learn and discover new things and – buy any yarn I want, whenever I want!

Rules say I have to tag 6 people now so hope you’ll pay along: Guinifer, Toni, SheKnits, Meghan, Wye Sue, and NerdGirl (haven't heard from you for a while!). This is my firset Meme and if you dion['t answer I'll understand but - come on! It's easy and it's something to do on the holiday weekend!

I'll play, but probably not till tonight. Thanks for tagging me. (blush) It's my first time! (who knew such a thing could still happen??)

Guinifer said...

Well, this is good for a post topic. My DH went to Winona (he graduated from HS from Stillwater HS in 77).

Saline Nasal Spray - used often as possible.

Toni said...

Fun! I just finished up my list & have tagged 6 new people.

Yarn tag?

Jill said...

Yay! Thanks for playing! :)

Sorry to hear you're not better yet. I always find I get sick right around when it starts getting warmer. I believe it has something to do with my making a comment about how great it is that summer is coming and we won't be getting colds anymore. Yeah, it's gotta be that. Happens every time...
