Happy Birthday to ME

Look at this great cat lamp (and books) I got for my birthday:

We had a few friends over last night and drank champagne at midnight. Usually I go away on my birthday, but because we just got the cat we decided to stay in town.

And I got tagged twice more!

Once by Angela:

What were you doing five years ago?

I was on my birthday trip to Poland and on the 31st we were in Wroclaw and stayed in the same hotel Hitler always stayed in on his visits. They saw it was my birthday in my passport and brought me little cakes to my room!

What are five things on your to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?

Well, the day is almost over, so probably:

1. Finish up this post

2. Scan in Daniel's Daily Drawing for today

3. Brush my teeth

4. Brush the cat's teeth (J/K!)

5. Start reading a new book

What are five snacks you enjoy?

Nectarines, braeburn apples, banana chips, chocolate, grapes

What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?

Pay off all the debt of my friends and family

Take a round the world trip (first class all the way!)

Donate tons of books to low income kids and families

Buy some real estate

Swim in my money like Uncle Scrooge

What are five of your bad habits?

I spend too much time on the internet x 5

What are five places where you have lived?


Five Jobs I've had:

1. Walked a neighbor kid to the bus stop every morning

2. Homework Hotline (we usually just watched Jeopardy!)

3. Private ESL teacher

4. Subway Sandwich Artist

5. Bilingual Customer Service Rep at Viking Office Products

I was also tagged by Karen to write 6 random things about myself:

My eyes are hazel
I can still read hirigana pretty well
The song I play the most on itunes is Sugar by Tori Amos
The last movie I saw on DVD was Thirteen
My favorite cereal is Quaker Oat Squares
I like dancing the Merengue

I'm not going to tag anyone this time, but feel free to do it if you want!

Belated Happy Birthday!

When my husband and I visited his sister when she was living in Japan, we took a roadtrip to Kyoto and it took both of us to decipher the signs so we didn't lose our way. Sounds like we needed you along for the ride :)
