What were you doing 10 years ago?
January 1996: Starting second semester of sophomore year of college. Had a big blizzard that year: 4 feet of snow. Tons of classmates' flights didn't make it in time for start of classes. Then again, classes didn't start on time anyway, so it was OK. Taught a classmate from Hawaii how to make a snowball. Anyway, classes included Philosophy of Human Nature, Intro to New Testament, American Gov't II, some medieval English class (I remember reading Macbeth [again], Troilus & Criseyde, Donne, some passion play, some other stuff), and two other classes completely slipping my mind right now.
What were you doing 1 year ago?
January 2005: Course Development Director for an online university. Great job. Terrible workplace.
Five snacks you enjoy:
A. Cheese Nips (not Cheese-Its). I've often said that if limbo of the just existed and I went there, destined for fulfillment of all natural desires, but nothing more, I would be eating Cheese Nips (among, you know, doing other things, I imagine).
B. extra-sharp cheddar on triscuts (same as Derek)
D. shrimp cocktail (My family's recipe for cocktail sauce: add lots of horseradish, and look at a bottle of ketchup.)
E. Ben & Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch (I know it's not really a snack, but it's my favorite flavor of ice cream.)
Five songs you know all the words to:
A. Pretty much anything by They Might Be Giants
B. Pretty much anything by Billy Joel
C. Hammer of the Gods - Led Zeppelin
D. The Distance - Cake
E. Tango to Evora - Loreena McKennitt ;-)
(F. many others)
