It's all about me(me)

Twin-tagged by Fairyhedgehog and Whirlochre with this one. I think my answers will be quite boring, but here goes. Conduit's just tagged me with something, too, but that might have to wait until tomorrow.

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

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. Again, I'm deleting the rest of the rules, because I'm planning on ignoring them.

What were you doing ten years ago?

I was a newly-wed, living in San Francisco, aw, sweet. However, with no working visa I was bored to bits. I did some voluntary work teaching English (which is why there are some kids in SFO who talk about 'post boxes' instead of 'mail boxes', oops), played a ton of tennis, cycled for miles, argued with DH about ironing and acted in a zero budget movie that I never saw (no, not one of THOSE movies). I wasn't writing in those days, unfortunately.

What are five things on your to-do list for today?

It's evening and I've had extra kids today due to a teacher's strike here, so I'm planning on getting the kids to bed, finishing the washing-up, making a mug of tea, unwrapping some chocolate and reading a book.

What are some snacks you enjoy?

Anything from a bakery. Yum. Oink.

What would you do if you were a billionaire?

This may be too obvious, but I'd spend money.

What are three of your bad habits?

I'm a duvet hogger, I always squeeze the toothpaste from the middle and I don't read enough to the kids (too busy reading to me).

What are five places where you have lived?

Sydney, Oz
San Francisco, USA
Amsterdam, NL
London, UK
Victoria, Canada

What are five jobs you have had?

PR Executive
Shop assistant
Kitchen assistant

What were the last five books you read?

No idea. Sorry, but I'm a serial speed reader at the moment, all library stuff chosen randomly. Some are rubbish, some are good, and I can't remember the names of any of them, which is a comment even on the 'good' stuff available from our library.

No onward tagging. Although if anyone would like to volunteer, feel free.

Pardon me, but isn't squeezing the toothpaste from the middle the pathway to inner sainthood?

So what happened to that zero budget movie besides never being seen by you?

Robin S. said...

Good stuff, McK.

And San Francisco - At least it was an interesting place to be bored!

McKoala said...

Naturally, WO. Maybe I should also confess to leaving the lid off.

The zero budget movie - I honestly have no idea what happened to it. I was doing a favour for a friend of a friend and I never heard anything about it ever again. It was a short and I assume it just kind of died somewhere. My one chance at fame, gone, gone, gone.

That made me spit water on my keyboard laughing....
