Borrowing a meme

In spite of my best intentions, the number of posts I've actually written and, well, posted, has fallen precipitously, even for me. It's not that I haven't wanted to post. Its just that I've been a little short on spare time. That and the inability to think of a worthy topic to blog about. Well I finally have a bit of extra time. At least I'm going to take a bit of extra time. I just submitted not one, but two manuscripts so I think I deserve a bit of down time. That just leaves the challenge of deciding what to blog about, and I've solved that problem by borrowing a meme that is going around the Science blogosphere. So with out further ado, I give you "The 5 Things Meme." 5 Things I was Doing 10 years Ago:
  1. Observing the feeding behavior of European corn borers.
  2. Trying to decide where I wanted to do a PhD.
  3. Playing lots of board games with fellow grad students.
  4. Cooking fabulous food with veggies from our garden
  5. Reading as many Sci-fi books as I could manage (for a while there I was reading 1 per day)
5 Things On My To-Do List Today:
  1. Write at least 1 blog post
  2. Plan/design experiments for tomorrow.
  3. Read about/plan experiments for new study
  4. Request and examinaton copy of a new science book I've been coveting.
  5. Go the the public library with the family to check out new books for my little monkeys.
5 Snacks I Love:
  1. Chocolate
  2. Cookies
  3. Doughnuts
  4. Roasted pumpkin seeds
  5. Crisp apples
5 Things I Would Do If I Were A Millionaire:
  1. Buy a house with large tracks of land.
  2. Take an extended to Australia and New Zealand
  3. Set up college funds for my 2 girls.
  4. Make huge donations to Woman's Hospital NICU and the March of Dimes
  5. Buy some John Fluevog shoes.
5 Places I've Lived:
  1. 4th floor dorm room with the roommate from Hell.
  2. Middle class neighborhood in Colorado Springs
  3. Little town in north Alabama
  4. Barely big enough for 2 people apartment in Rocket City, Alabama
  5. Southern Louisiana
5 Jobs I've Had:
  1. Pizza artist
  2. Bookseller
  3. Coffee barista
  4. Student
  5. Student (I spent enough time as a student that I feel it deserves at least 2 places on my list.)
