more useless info

i got tagged in a blog meme, so what the hey…

1) What was I doing 10 yrs ago?

Ten years ago was April 1998. It was my senior year at WPI and I was frantically looking for a job, either in MA or PA. Erica and I knew we were going to be together at that point, but didn’t know where. I applied for jobs in both states, and as it turned out, the only company that wanted to hire me had offices in both states. So i took the offer in Pennsylvania and the rest is history…

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

  1. Update the Softball scores and schedule – check
  2. Work out – check
  3. send this report I’ve been working on out for approval – not yet
  4. pick out some books i don’t want anymore for our yard sale – tonight
  5. enjoy my family – later

3) Snacks I enjoy:

a bowl of cereal always hits the spot…so do crackers and cheese…and a cup of herbal or green tee to top it off.

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

  1. Pray like crazy…That’s a lot of responsibility
  2. Pay off my house.
  3. Find a few causes i really believed in.
  4. Quit my job and start a career doing freelance writing, book writing, and artist fan community development.
  5. Hire a personal trainer to keep me from getting fat.
  6. Golf more
  7. Build a softball field complex that had replicas of Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, and Pac Bell Park (with a lake behind left field).
  8. Help Dean Kaman get his slingshot into the whole world so we could eliminate the tragedies that lack of water cause.

5) Three of my bad habits:

  1. not washing my car…ever
  2. eating snacks after 10pm
  3. thinking too much about the future

6) 5 places I have lived:

  1. New Bedford, MA
  2. Swansea, MA
