Noblesse oblige...and *SQUEE!!!*

Yarnhog tagged me for a new meme, and since I love it when people wanna know stuff about little old me, here it is.

"The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the 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 was I doing 10 years ago?

I was one of three females working for a heavy equipment manufacturer, an extremely sexist company IMHO. The only jobs for women were front desk and accounting. I didn't stay long. As I recall, it was a crappy year in general for our family. My brother-in-law Jonathan was dying of lymphoma due to anti-rejection drugs for his heart transplant, and J. and I were having marital problems. Leaving that crappy job to be a stay-at-home mom and figure out what I really wanted to do, seemed to help our marriage a great deal. That was probably more than y'all wanted to know, but that was my life 10 years ago.

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

Do another load of laundry, dye up 6 skeins of sock yarn in the "Uber Frau" colorway, go shopping for business supplies, skein up another cone of yarn, and contemplate whether or not to drive to the beach tomorrow

3) Snacks I enjoy: Chocolate covered anything, croissants and almond twist pastries with my Starbucks beverage

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Seek excellent financial advice, pay off debts, set up a charitable foundation, travel, go back to Japan and hang out for a while, collect metric tons of yarn, and take Stitchjones global :)

5) Places I have lived: Eastern Massachusetts, New Jersey, Hirakata, Japan, and Portland, Oregon
7) 6 peeps I wanna know more about:


Of course you don't have to play if you don't wanna, and I'm too lazy to go to everybody's blogs and say they've been "tagged". But if you happen to see your name here, I really would like to know your answers to these questions.

Oh, and the *SQUEE* thing...I am bouncing off the walls, 'cuz I just got a HUMUNGOUS order, the largest order I have ever received--60 skeins! I can't say just yet who my customer is, but as soon as my products are listed in her shop I'll tell all. Let's just say my yarn will be among such deliciousness as Hazel Knits, Apple Laine, Zen String and Zen Yarn Garden!!

60 skeins, like, it's been nice knowing ya. I think I will take a day and sneak off to the beach, because for the next couple of weeks I probably won't be leaving the house much.

Oh wow, congratulations on the huge order!
