Tag, I'm It

by - Thursday, June 12, 2008

I’ve been tagged by Freckles Chick so at the risk of boring you all with this self-indulgent post, here goes. The rules: Answer the following questions about yourself. At the end of the post you pass on the questions to 6 (or so) other bloggers and list their names. Then write them a comment telling them that they've been tagged and ask them to read your blog.

1. What did you do 10 years ago? I would have been working full time as a Financial Analyst and doing my MBA part-time. Life was not much fun and consisted of studying on the subway ride to and from work every day; studying in between beach volleyball league games every weekend; and studying on every lunch break. Borrrrring.

2. Five items on your to-do list today: 1) buy a gift for Father’s Day, 2) figure out what is a plant and what is a weed in my garden and pull out the weeds, 3) go for a bike ride, 4) pick up the final wedding print from our photographer, 5) find a topic for today’s blog post. Yay - #5 can now be checked off ;)

3. Snacks I enjoy: Does a Tim Horton’s double-double coffee count? I need one of those each morning in order to even function properly. Other snacks... chocolate... strawberries... chocolate-covered strawberries make me swoon.

4. What would you do if you were a billionaire? Give some to the parents and the siblings. Open a design/build business with HandyMan. Open a strategic consulting business for creative firms. Spend some time travelling and building houses with Habitat for Humanity. Summer in Paris, winter in Bali. Buy one of those big fancy mansions Hooked On Houses features on her blog. Paint, cook, write, eat, create.

5. Places I would live: I love Vancouver and Paris. But having my family and friends nearby is what will keep me in Toronto.

6. Bloggers I am passing the challenge onto are: I’ll pick a few blogs I like reading but don’t know ‘personally’ much about - DIY Diva; Baltimore Rowhouse; Becoming Home; A Life’s Design; In Pursuit of our Place; Apropos of Nothing.
