A 5 Things Meme

Claire tagged me for a meme a while ago. I told her I'd get to it when we'd finished moving and things were a little more settled, so 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 people, posts their names, and then leaves a comment on their blogs, letting them know they've been tagged. Here we go....
What was I doing 10 years ago (April 1998)?
Adjusting to married life and getting ready for my 10-year high school reunion. A friend and I went on a stupid 'diet' in order to be gorgeous for the reunion (**I must point out that I have never dieted in my life and this was all done very much tongue in cheek!) where we cut down to one can of soft drink a day and switched from double coat Tim Tams - a fabulous chocolate biscuit that I'm told you can only get here in Australia - to single coat ones. It was very un-scientific and we laughed ourselves silly until we each lost 5kg's and thought there might be something in that! Of course we continued to consume the same (seriously vast) amounts of alcohol and junk food while doing little or no exercise.
5 Things on my "To Do" list today/tomorrow:
Buy a new tablecloth, organise the last bits for #1's booklist at his new school, check if my membership at the local library is still valid (or rejoin if needed), look for Mother's Day presents for the mums/grandmums and grandmums/great-grandmums in the family, find something yummy to cook for dinner.
5 Things I would do if I were a Billionaire:
Pay off the house, pay for the renovations/extensions we want done to the house, set up scholarships for financially disadvantaged kids to go to uni, build a new children's hospital in Perth to replace the aging one we have, travel.
5 Bad Habits:
Sneaking the odd (rather more frequent of late) cigarette, chewing the inside of my cheek, procrastinating, not making appointments that need to be made (like hair appts) then moaning that I'm in dire need of a hair cut, worrying about things that haven't even happened.
5 Places I have lived:
Perth Hills, Red Dirt Tiny Town, Perth Hills, Red Dirt Central, Perth Hills (hmm, can we see a pattern there???)
5 Jobs I have had:
Office Junior, Waitress, Medical Receptionist, High School Teacher, University Lecturer,
Now, I'm supposed to tag people but since I don't really like doing that I'll leave it open. If you want to do the meme cut and paste away. Let me know in the comments if you do so I can come check it out.

Never thought you might smoke!
I quit six years ago and saved 6,976 US-$ (according to www.quitmeter.com) - I should be rich! And wonder where the money went?

I'm afraid as you seem to falling back into bad habits, so do I...I'm sure that time when I'm supposed to grow up and become a responsible adult is just around the corner...Perhaps?

Claire said...

I bite the inside of my mouth, too! AND don't make a hair appt and then say how much I need one. Its a bad thing...and I really need a hair cut, haven't had one since October!

Sam Marshall said...

OOOhhhhh the Timtam diet sounds good...Now that's something I could handle easily!!!

Red Dirt Mummy said...

I gave up in May 2000, Iris. But the last six months have seen me sneaking more than the odd one.

LOL Chantalle, I'm sure it must be! Now you've the mortgage to deal with I'm sure the adult-y bit will rear it's ugly head ;)

Hey Claire, that's spooky!

LOL Sam. It was hard but we gave it our best shot HAHAHAHAHA :)
