not dead; meme

Still alive, still knitting, just about. There were a couple of horrible weeks when I couldn't even knit, but I seem to be past the worst now. Currently on the needles are the yoke of a Cobblestone, another Diamond Fantasy Shawl (actually I still can't concentrate enough to knit that) and some DNA spiral illusion knitting socks. Pics might appear if I can work out how.

Liz tagged me for a meme, so here you go.

The Rules
Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago?

Sitting my A-levels, knitting on my Dr Who scarf in between revising and exams (it's a very long scarf in random bright colours rather than an accurate replica. I wore it almost constantly through my next three years at university.) Having lots of rehearsals at school to prepare for our music tour to Barcelona.

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today? (not in any particular order)
Go with Debs to collect her possessions from her dead car.
Empty the bins
Watch a performance by ARU drama students
Find the floor in my room
Do some back exercises

3. Snacks I enjoy
Dark chocolate
Brazil nuts
Hummous topped with olive oil and paprika

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire
Buy a pretty house in the country with a stable full of beautiful horses
Ride horses and read all over the world
Fund my PhD and set up a funding body to support other quirky little cross disciplinary ideas
Learn to sail little boats on beautiful lakes
Buy many many many books
Go on holiday with all my friends and family

5. Places I have lived

I tag you, you and YOU! (if you want to)

I was just thinking about you yesterady - there was a woman in Senate House that looked *exactly* like you from the back of her head (but nothing like you when I checked the front)

I guess you are in the middle of dissertation-ing. Good luck! I have only a few more weeks to go for thesis. (fingers crossed)

Thanks for responding to this - always feel guilty tagging busy people... Hope the floor-rediscovery worked, and love the idea of the little boats and beautiful lakes... I'll blog that church later.
