A Six-Pack sorta meme

I was tagged for a meme by my Island pal C, and I thought I would do it as I haven't done one in ages. And I don't think I've done this one before.

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.Each player answers the questions about themselves.At the end of the post, the player then tags 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.

What was I doing 10 years ago?

1) enjoying married life
2) living in our first purchased home in the city
3) trying to get pregnant
4) finishing up my first term of my MBA and killing myself for a country project worth a measly 5% of my mark
5) working in an office that had an actual door
6) shopping (I'm bad)

What are 6 things on my to-do list for today (yesterday - i-net troubles):

1) go to the gym for a much needed Bodyjam class;
2) pick up teachers' gifts
3) figure out what to do for our anniversary this year
4) pick up the boy from a playdate at a friend's house. (edited: they delivered. Great friends!)
5) blog, plurk, twitter, buzz
6) laundry and then order dinner in (hopefully!)

Snacks I enjoy?

1) ice cream
2) potato chips
3) pistachios
4) pie
5) Godiva chocolates
6) Edemame

Things I would do if I were a billionaire?

1) retire the husband; from his job, I mean. I think I'd keep him.
2) help out the siblings and parents - cruises for the folks coming out of their ears!
3) set aside for the kids education
4) invest some
5) give to charity (health charities, and probably sponsor some more kids through Plan Canada
6) travel and buy vacation property(ies)
7) oh, and of course SHOP!!!

Places I have lived?

-Toronto area (snooze ...)

How did you name your blog?

I thought I would start a blog, one sunny day while at home breastfeeding the girl (she was about 5 months old) and enjoying being with her and the boy at home. It was meant to be more of an online journal, because I know as I age I WILL forget all the cute and memorable moments unless I capture them somewhere. And at first I told NOBODY about it. When I told my brother he laughed, and said it was meant to be shared. I'm just such a shy-pie. Now I'm a total comment whore.

So that's how "A Day in the Life" started. I added "one glass at a time" after I joined the esteemed Weekend Bloghoppers earlier in the year. Wanted to spice up my blog personality a bit. But I doubt if I've fooled anyone.

Who am I tagging and do I want to know more about ?

So many to tag, so little time ... if you're not meme type people, or you've already done this, please ignore the tag...

1/ Karen at Rocking Pony
2/ Mah-meeee at Raising A & C
3/ Laskigal From the Cheap Seats
4/ Caffeine Court
5/ Zoe's Dad Ed
6/ I'm Being Held Hostage - In the Gutter

And anyone else, if you haven't done this already, please feel free to do it. Or tuck it away for a rainy "what to blog about" day!

Fun meme!

But Toronto is so much more exciting than Toledo. John Denver once wrong a song about how we roll up the sidewalks here at 9pm.

Well I'm flattered that you thought of me-- no one ever tags me (envision the girl on the playground always picked last-- sniff) ;-) Thank you.
I have done this one, but it was long ago and being a June girl, things have probably changed since then. I'll get back on to tackle this when the kids are down for the count.

Rima said...

"Retire the husband" Tee-hee. I like this meme. It's always so fascinating to read about the little details of your bloggy friends' lives. You have good taste, too.

Kimmylyn said...

I can eat edemame all day.. yum..
I love that you put plurk on your things to do.. hahahah
I am still laughing..

Sandy C. said...

"blog, plurk, twitter, buzz" - It all sounds so dir-tay ;) I totally love doing all of it too!

Is it wrong that I think ALL of your snacks sound good if eaten together? (minus the edamame) ;)

Family Adventure said...

Love edamame. It's my favourite snack of all time. If you can OD on it, I'm in serious trouble :)

Have a good trip to Vancouver. Will catch you in early July. Let's plan an adults only dinner out, yes?


PS Love the comment about the six pack. I wouldn't want to burst Liam's (or Christopher's) bubble, but all Christopher has is a severe lack of body fat. Muscles? I don't think so :)

Comment whore ......... heheheheh, you're funny, Karen! Consider this my comment.

C said...

Ohhh! So glad you did the meme! Loved reading your answers!

I got your e-mail! Glad you got the package in the mail!!!! :) I figured maybe Little G would like the strawberry-kiwi and Liam would like the eye ball soap! Once they've used the soap and get the toy out, they can play with it. The eye ball is one of those "poppers" that when inverted on a flat surface, it jumps up! It's really cool and I've given them to almost all of my friends' kids! The Manitoulin Soap Factory loves me! I swear...What's better than free publicity, right? LOL! ;)

C said...

P.S. If you see my aunt at the gym, you can let her know that you know that we're expecting! LOL! Too funny!
Love ya!

Caffeine Court said...

Thanks for the tag, this is a fun one! I'll do it tomorrow, I must get my beauty sleep! (Seriously, I need it!)

Ed (zoesdad) said...

I suppose I've never considered edemame a snack. Rather an appetizer. I may have to re-evaluate.

Thanks for the tag. And I appreciate the out as "can be used as a rainy day don't have a clue" blog post. It may take me a bit to get to it.

Jillian said...

I love the retire the husband one. You're too cute. I love Toronto but maybe that's because I don't live there. Love to visit you sometime.

louann said...


What is bodyjam?

Curiosity Killer said...

Awwww - this is so cute, esp the husband bit. :)

Just dropping by and checking in on your blog. Mine's not ready yet. Ah well.

Karen MEG said...

Oh, BTW, when I said TO( snooze) I meant that I'm a snooze for not venturing too for places where I've lived... I actually think Toronto rocks. Maybe that's why I haven't moved anywhere!

Yes, you should come visit!!!!

mah-meeee said...

hey you! thanks for the tag, i promise i'll get to it as soon as i can...

Slick said...

I could only hope Trish would "retire" me if she were a billionaire..
