My very first! Ah penni, you are too kind!

Some facts about me! meme

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. At the end of the post, the player tags 5 people and posts their name, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What was I doing 10 years ago?

10 years ago it was 1998 and I was just getting into second semester in my first year of BA Comms Broadcast Journalism degree at CSU Bathurst. I was living on campus, just turned 19, just taken up smoking (can you believe, to meet people?) and living in what I now understand to be abject poverty and clinically depressed.

I had gotten the opportunity to perform my HSC drama major work at OnStage and had befriended Rose Byrne

I had HD’d my subject in media production and presentation and had been tagged by 3 lecturers for being top on auto-cue reading. I failed media law and ethics and my compulsory politics subject, in fact, compulsory politics would be the core reason for me quitting in second year and going off to wear black full time in Newtown. I lived on $20/week, ate noodles and drank UHT milk (and cheap nasty vodka) and discovered mIRC. I was beginning to suspect something was very reproductively wrong with my body (it took another 4 years for a doctor to diagnose Endometriosis) Thinking back, I was desperately home sick, desperately poor and desperately better suited to doing a cadet ship, rather than a degree. Later that year I met DishPig the Uber Geek and the rest, as they say, is history.

Five snacks I enjoy in a perfect, non weight-gaining world: (slightly different, as mine include snacks that cause food intolerance reactions rather than weight gain)

* condensed milk out of the tube    *golden gay time ice cream    * red snakes     *Woolworth’s cake with bright pink icing    * BBQ flavour chips

Five snacks I enjoy in the real world more nutritious snacks (since I am not opposed to eating the above in this plane of reality):

*Kettle chips dipped in Quark cheese     *pikelets    *  bananas (they make me ill though)  *  baked chicken bits *  left over  roast veges with garlic salt

Five things I would do if I were a billionaire:

* enjoy living debt free   * enjoy hiring a good accountant   * take my family (plus my side extend-eds) traveling  * not spend it on stupid things like pink limos or gold plated loos  * invest lots in my local schools and gardens

Five jobs that I have had:

* haute couturier garment beader/finisher   * dating agency phone operator (as in making meetings between other people)   * florist   * Tea Lady   * Bakery wench.

Three of my habits:

*  getting professionally fitted for bras at least 4 times per year  * not finishing anything     *staying up way too late

Five places I have lived:

* Sydney, Bathurst, Bourke, Kyoto, North Arm Cove

Five people I want to get to know better: (A nice way of saying TAG!)
