Tag, I’m It

I got tagged by my girlfriend, so I will do my best to fill this thing out.

10 years ago I was…
I was a junior in high school, writing papers for the science symposium at KU, and competing on a national level in my artistic endeavor, calligraphy.

5 years ago I was…
Five years ago I was finishing my two year degree and getting promoted into management. I was known as “Incredipete the Hatchet” as I cleaned out the deadwood in my departments, and changed most of the procedures. It didn’t make me popular, but it did save the company a lot of money, all of which went to lining the pockets of a few high up executives with their golden parachutes.

1 year ago I was…
Finishing my bachelor’s, buying a house, studying for the GMAT, changing careers, and having a nervous breakdown which was complete with doctor visits and perscription drugs. In fact, it was the reason I started blogging, which has ultimately led to my meeting Jenna. Yay.

Yesterday I was…
Scheduling a doctor visit so I could get a catscan of my head. Seriously. I have some serious sinus problems.

5 snacks I enjoy the most:
– Potatoes… any kind of potato except for baked
– Mountain Dew (yes, it’s a snack)
– Russell Stover’s dark chocolate Roman Nougat…. the best and only candy I will eat
– Chocolate ice cream with NO toppings
– Olives. The green ones.

5 songs I know all the words to:
– Anything by Metallica
– Anything by Pearl Jam
– Anything from Bush “Sixteen Stone”
– Anything from Tori Amos “Under the Pink” “Little Earthquakes” and “Boys for Pele”
– Anything by Garth Brooks. Sue me.

5 things I would do with 100 million dollars:
I would make sure my family and Jenna’s were set, then I’d by a yacht and a villa in Italy, and live happily ever after.

5 places ideal for running away to:
– Maui – definitely perfect for a getaway
– Venice – Always wanted to visit Italy
– San Diego – Perfect weather
– Australia – it’s still wilderness
– Alaska – I want to cruise Alaska

– Tight shirts
– Bell Bottoms
– Spandex
– Boxers
– Headband

5 best TV shows:
-The West Wing
-The Shield
-24

5 biggest joys in life:

-My computer (Toshiba Satellite P30)
-My Guitar (Yamaha Acoustic)
-My drums (Yamaha Stage Custom with Sabian AA Studio Cymbols)

I refuse to tag, because I don’t know who’s already done this and who hasn’t. So consider yourself tagged if you haven’t already done this.

    Pearl Jam, really? Isn’t wierd how, one you get past all of Eddie’s bullshit rants, they are actually a great fucking band?! My friend once called them: “The Greatest Cover Band in the World.” I like you more every day, Incredipete.
