Holy Succotash Batman, I've been memed!

My knitting pal, Audrey, tagged me with a meme. I was just thinking about wanting to be tagged with one yesterday when I found the comment in my inbox. Happy Meme-ing!

The Rules: Each player answers the five questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago:
In the summer of 1998, I had just finished my second year at university at UW in Seattle. I was living with my first year roommate, Jen, in a 2 BDR townhouse the Northgate neighborhood. And I was going out with a frat boy. That was also the year that I qualified for the program which gave me the scholarship to Germany … where I eventually was to meet my DH.

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

  • Post on my expat blog since I haven’t in two weeks  
  • Apply for some more writing gigs
  •  Finish an article for a travel blog on wine festivals in Germany
  • Work on a birthday gift for my darling girlfriend in SF, Alexis
  • Go through a few books on freelance writing

3. Snacks I enjoy:

  • Burnt rice from the bottom of the pot (yes, I know I am wierd)
  • Popcorn with a melted butter/margarine, garlic powder and nutritional yeast mixture
  • Oatcakes  
  • Sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • Wheat Cereal Biscuits

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:

  •  start my book/yarn/coffee shop/arts and craft gallery
  • design and build my own eco-house in Seattle (for which one has to be obscenely wealthy)
  • take the cello again
  • fund local women’s and educational charities wherever I am
  • buy an incredible writing utensil
  •  adopt a pair of pure bread pug puppies – black, of course

5. Places I have lived:

  • Yakima, WA, USA
  • Seattle, WA, USA
  • Freiburg, Germany
  •  Mainz, Germany
  • Vancouver, BC, Canada
  • Manchester, England

I am now tagging a few people I know and whose blogs I visit: Green Eyed Monsters, Wanderlustlost, Domestic Miss, Rubbish Knitter, and Snailspace .

Apparently, in Iran the burnt rice from the bottom of the pot is the "best bit" that everyone wants, and is usually given to the Dad.

This random fact was brought to you by Kate's mum's random expat childhood.

Of course, the picnic! How silly I am. I'll bring it then! Although a coffee on Tuesday would still be good, if you fancy it -- I'll be around anyway, so it's easy for me! :)
