I Have Been Tagged!!!

By...... Janet in this Meme.
So, here goes.

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was just finishing my very first year of college. I got 8 credits for AP Biology in High School, and was so happy that I didn't have to take general Biology all over again in College. I flew straight into the Chemistry. I was on the Dean's List the first semester, and kept the same grades going into the second.... only to find out that at the end of my real Freshman year, I was already a Sophomore based on credits, and the Dean's list was missed by 1 point. Arrgghh!!! Welcome to the real world.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
1. Go to the Central Park for Sit N' Knit.
2. Get a microdermabrasion/peel kit. Need to look my best in a photoshoot that is scheduled for next sunday.
3. Knit my Central Park Hoodie. It has been sitting idle for way too long.
4. Make some stitch markers
5. Find someone to see Sex And the City with me, AND find a show that isn't already sold out.

3) Snacks I enjoy:
Crackers and Cheese (from Trinidad)
Rice Krispie Treats
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
Terra Chips
Pinkberry with Mango, Coconut, and Pineapple
White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse cake from Financiar (French Patisserie in the Financial District)
Haagen Dazs Ice Cream - Dulce de Leche, Caramel Waffle Cone, White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle

4)Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Pay off my house and car. Buy houses for all of my cousins and their kids. Put away a college fund for all off the little cousins under 18, since I don't have any children yet. Buy another house with a storefront that I can use to sell Jewelry and Knitting Crapaphenilia. Adopt a child. Have some of my own kids. Donate money to scholarships for creative-minded people like me who get stuck in practical jobs, so that they can go back to school and change their careers, and have a lifetime of happiness. Buy a guesthouse in Tobago, and give some unemployed people and their families a chance to work in paradise. Give each employee a house of their own too. Go to the beach and get a serious tan. .. I am talking golden dipped chocolate baby!!! Finally pay for a year of Krav Maga classes, so noone can try to beat me up to steal my billion dollars. I may have to dismantle their family jewels with my foot first. Hehe!!! A girl's gotta protect herself.

5) Places I have lived.
Brooklyn, New York - Crown Heights, East New York, Flatbush, Canarsie
Hempstead, New York - for College

Six people I would like to tag are: NessaRenee, Chante, Tawana, Sauniell, Jane, and Penelope. Yes ladies, I am giving you a reason to update your blogs one more time.

So, I am on my self-imposed yarn buying ban.... and I decided to go to Michaels to buy this.

I will use it to wrap up Jewelry boxes for my up-and-coming custom jewelry design business, so they are really pretty. More details to follow.

I decided to peruse the yarn section, just because. I know I wasn't going to buy any yarn, but there was something else that made me weak. Have you heard of Knitpickers??? I am instantly in love. I think that it is better than the Total Tote that I bought before, because it is way more comfortable to carry on my shoulder. Also, I got a 25% off coupon in my email, so I definately made good use of it.
Have a knitterly wonderful day!!!

I've seen that bag on another blog and I fell hard for it. Luckily for me and my wallet I have yet to spot it in the Michael's I go to.
