hidden treasure

I wasn't tagged for this meme, but I'm going to do it anyway, because I feel like it. So there. And those previous three sentences and the Qs below and one or two answers taken from Ampersand Duck; see the link at sidebar.

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Second year of PhD research. Conferences, maybe my first teaching forays. Mia and I living together for first time in Hartwell, I think, with Fiona and Guy, and perhaps later that year in Brunswick on our own. Or perhaps Brunswick happened the following year.


Five snacks I enjoy in a perfect, non weight-gaining world

4. Pakoras.

5. Corn chips


Five snacks I enjoy in the real world:

6. See 1-5 above

7. Rice crackers

2. Build a model suburb

Squander

Isn't that the best word?!

BTW, absolutely adored Sherbet when I was younger. Haven't listened to them in years!

Can I tag myself? My blog has been so gloomy lately.

All right then, I will, if you insist.
