Well I have been tagged by Newscoma (ding dang it!). I have not been feeling very social as of late and I hope it helps or don't make matters worse to let out some of myself...I will strive to not be too grim. I am suffering from a bit of a stress/mental breakdown, situational depression and the late winter blues to boot.

O.K. this tag thing works like this:
Remove the blog in the top spot from the list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot.

Here is the new list:
  1. Hits from 'da Blog
  2. Rex L.
  3. Aunt B.
  4. Newscoma
  5. Tennessee Jed
Then select five folks to tag. Please forgive me y'all and this is just for fun so if it ain't fun don't do it:
  1. buddy don at Wandering Hillbilly
  2. Red Molly at Blue Page Special
  3. God at God Almighty (please don't smite me)
  4. Richard at Goat Food
  5. Mark at Great White Bear (at his new url)
What were you doing ten years ago?

I was totally remodeling a bathroom (floor joist to celing joist) in my little house in Morristown which I worked on for over a year for an hour or two a week. I had my three year old daughter Camry and my 6 month old daughter Castle under my roof. I was living with a woman who was pretending to love me long enough to get her procreation goals attained with an acceptable marriage vow to suit her family. I worked for a non-profit company that was a textile producer for the armed services. They had mostly blind employees, but I trained other handicapped folks to do screen printing and embroidery. I was needing more money and better health coverage for my soon to be fucked up family so I went to work for a large machine shop with my sewing machine training.

What were you doing one year ago?

Slaughtering my credit trying to live on microscopic wages which are cut 32% off the gross end to support a family I do not have anymore while leaving no room for any bad luck on my second family. There I go whimpering. Pissed off everything and went camping in the state parks of Saint George, Andrew and Joe on the gulf of Mexico.

Five snacks you enjoy:

Ice Cream
Chocolate, all kinds (Lindt when I can get it)
Cereal (Shreadded wheat)
Dr. Pepper

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics:

Neil Young, Dreaming Man
Pink Floyd, Fearless (and a few hundred others)
Cake, The Distance
John Prine, Grandpa was a Carpenter
The Grateful Dead, Tennessee Jed

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

Hire a lawyer to help me not be lawyer food.
Pay off a house nothing too fancy just a house in the woods.
Help my kids with an education of any kind.
Do nothing I don't want to do.
Give 1000x more to the folks who have given to me when I was in need.

Five bad habits:

Smoking tobacco. I think about quitting.
Cursing too much, and I don't want to quit dammit!
Not having faith.
Waste time over thinking things.
Drink too much coffee.

Five things you like doing:

Fixing things even if I can't fix them.
Reading things I can discuss with the writer.
Graphic art projects if I can find time and money.
Relaxing with folks I enjoy and love.
Having sex.

Five things you would never wear again:

Bell bottom jeans
A mullet
My heart on my sleeve
Beer goggles
A speedo or a man thong

Five favorite toys:

All of life is a toy if you look at it right. I have been looking at it wrong for too long.

I would have loved to tag God Almighty, but I was nervous about the smiting as well. You are much braver than me.
Yeah, I love the tobacco too. I try to quit at least three times a week.
I get cranky and my family goes and buys me some Marlboro Lights so I'll shut the hell up and quit giving them stink-eye.
Such is the way of the world.

Thank you for the tag. It will be fun.

I'd pay good money if you would post a picture of you w/ a mullett!

Did you really wear a speedo and a man thong? Are you really admitting to that?
Blogger Julie, at 9:05 PM  
Yea, I used to have a speedo when I was six or seven years old. I had some weird undies back in the early 80's they weren't exactly called thongs because I do not remember that term until the 90's, but they were cut with just a triangle for my lovely man lumps and nothing to speek of for my hump, my hump. I will look for photos of me back then...I could use some money.

There I was this morning wondering what I would answer if I got tagged and now's my chance to find out. I think that's serendipity. Only one problem, I'm not sure I can pass it on efficiently. There isn't a lot in my sidebar at t'moment and what's there doesn't really seem conducive to this kind of japery, so that bit may have to wait.

Man thong, eh? And a mullet? At the same time?

I forgot I have an island named after me and that in certain cultures I am also a Saint.

... and um, most typically of me, i somehow missed the question about "Five Things You Enjoy" though yer last entry in that list is one of my fave things to do ... guess that means i should do a whole post on things that bring joy ....

Did you actually say 'My lovely man lumps' I'm not even sure I know what that means

sweet mother mary of God blogger....

Blogger Julie, at 8:29 PM  

Oh... I forgot about sex...
That sounds bad when I say it out loud...
Blogger The Editor, at 2:22 AM  
Man thong, eh? The mind boggles.
