5 Things

I'm horrible about getting around to doing meme. Science Woman tagged me about a month ago to do the 5 things meme. And I just got around to it...

5 things I was doing 10 years ago:

1. Worrying about applying to college
2. Trying to impress a boy who was completely wrong for me.
3. Frustrating my parents.
4. Taking physics and biology (and enjoying the courses).
5. Daydreaming about leaving HomeTown.

5 things on my to-do list today:

1. Test activity of my protein at an intermediate purification step.
2. Precipitate my protein (only to resuspend it).
3. Spend time with Dr. Man (it's a sort-of date night).
4. Send a letter to a close friend.
5. Make a whole bunch of buffers.

5 snacks I love:

1. Cashews
2. Brownies
3. Popcorn
4. Ice cream
5. Cookies

5 things I'd do if I were a millionaire (and I'm assuming a many times over millionaire):

1. Set aside money for retirement.
2. Do something philanthropic (I'm not sure if I'd set up my own fund or if I'd donate to one previously established).
3. Pay off my mortgage, my parents mortgage, and In-Laws mortgage.
4. Set aside money for theoretical children's needs.
5. Travel.

5 places I've lived:

1. Parent's house.
2. Rundown Co-op
3. Our soon-to-be ex-president's state
4. Super-nice apartment (with my own bathroom)
5. In the house that Dr. Man and I bought.

5 jobs I've had:

1. Bag Girl at now defunct Grocery Store Chain.
2. Cashier at Kmart
3. Camp counselor
4. Telephone survey person (not marketer)
5. Lab tech

I thought children were hypothetical not theoretical :)

How long did you live in place #3?

1. Bag Girl at now defunct Grocery Store Chain.

At first I read that as "Bad girl..." and I thought, "Wow, that sounds like fun, where's the application?"

I've never taken to these lists when I've been tagged. I never do them. I guess I'm just really lazy ...

Hmm.

I like your blog. It's great. The best to you and the pursuit of your Ph.D.

I look forward to dropping by again soon.

:--)

Nice lists. I too read Bad girl. What does that say about Ambivalent and I?

Also, I still owe you a copy of SEED and a christmas card if you send me your address. :)

Science Girl: Well, let's put it this way, I'm more comfortable with the theory of the subject than the supposition that they (the children in question) are real. :-) Oh, and I lived there for about a year when I was in elementary school.

AA: It was definitely not fun, but I was propositioned to fulfill the "Bad Girl" position while I was there... by an elderly man, no less!

Shawn: Thanks for stopping by! I'm horrible about getting to them, but eventually I do.

SW: Emailed! I think that says more about me than you and AA. :-)
