I’ve Been Tagged

My friend, John Dorner, tagged me last week week. Thanks John. Usually I don’t follow through with things like this, but this time I thought I’d make an exception. After all, I enjoyed reading posts from others that have gotten tagged:

Five snacks I enjoy:

  1. White Chocolate
  2. Peanut Butter Cookies
  3. Other Types of Cookies
  4. Rhubarb Desserts
  5. Salted Peanuts

Five Things on My To-Do list today:

  1. System to handle audio/video/podcasting
  2. Revamp the county CMS application
  3. Experience a Jimmy Buffett Concert, too late to see the Greatful Dead
  4. Get into shape, run/Jog
  5. Build a tall case clock and tv stand

Five Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

  1. Large donation to church/synod/Lutheran Schools of America
  2. Other charity opportunities
  3. Pay off debts for friends/family
  4. Travel more, just try to keep me away from beaches/mountains
  5. Cry (I won’t want the troubles, don’t even play the lottery)

Five jobs I have had:

  1. Farm laborer
  2. Electrician’s assistant
  3. Network/System Administrator
  4. Rigger/Spotlight operator (I like telling stories about this)
  5. Web Developer, interests in usability, accessibility, and SEO

Five random things:

  1. I was raised by my aunt and uncle. But don’t even try to tell me that they aren’t my Mom and Dad. As for my cousins, they are my brothers and sisters. “Family” is much more important than biology.
  2. I’ve easily seen over 200 concerts/shows, and have over 100 concert t-shirts, and close to 150 back stage passes. I’ve paid to see less than 5 of these shows. (see jobs I’ve had)
  3. I attended a one room school. K-5th grade, I was the only kid in my grade. A new family moved to the neighborhood, and my class size doubled for grades 6-8. Going to high school with about 180 in my class was a big shock.
  4. My niece and nephew (ages 13 and 11) race go-carts. Whenever possible, I’m a member of their “pit crew”. It’s more work then you’d think.
  5. I’ve always loved music, and wish I could play. Anyone give piano, guitar, or drumming lessons?

Five of my bad habits:

  1. Caffeine in the form of diet soda
  2. Use inbox/deleted mail as file cabinets
  3. Work too much
  4. Jump from task to task, then back again
  5. Shyness

Five places I have lived:

  1. Born in Ames
  2. Farm by Saude, IA (is that on any maps anymore)
  3. Ames, IA

Five people I would like to get to know better (yes, this means you are tagged!):
Now go and post your lists of 5.

  1. Floyd
  2. Deb
  3. Lynette
  4. Kevin
  5. Matt

Honorable mention goes to some people that have already been tagged:

  • Greg (also tagged by John)
  • Vince -(also tagged by John)
  • Becky (Also tagged by Anne)

In addition, I’ve encouraged a number of people to start blogs. I really wanted to list names, but I won’t. This time:-)

    Just found this 🙂 Looks like the meme evolved a bit since I did it…
