"Getting to Know You....." (Sing with me)

The Cajun has pulled me into another of those games of blog-tag. This one with a "getting to know you theme." I've tagged others, and recently, so fair is fair....

Here are the rules:

  1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
  2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
  3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 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.
For the tagging part of this, I have decided to randomly pick bloggers from states and places I've lived or that interest me.

And the questions:
  1. What was I doing 10 yrs ago?
    I was just starting my current job, trying to coordinate the use and sharing of geospatial data in the state of Delaware as a staffer at the Office of State Planning Coordination (now part of the Office of Management and Budget).

  2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order)?
    • Empty the dishwasher.
    • Play 18 holes of golf.
    • Squire my daughter on a visit to her horse, Jazzy.
    • Take a nap.
    • Convince Karen and the girls to go out for dinner with me.

  3. Snacks I enjoy:
    • Sun chips
    • Hummus
    • Almonds
    • grapes

  4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
    • Purchase land that might otherwise be developed in my county.
    • Fund scholarships.
    • Walk across the US staying at really nice hotels and Bed-and-Breakfasts.
    • Play more golf.

  5. Three of my bad habits:
    • Too much snacking
    • Too much web-surfing
    • Too much talking.

  6. Five places I have lived: (in no order whatsoever…)
    • Bethesda, Maryland
    • Waterville, Maine
    • Germantown, Maryland
    • Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
    • Lewes, Delaware

  7. Five jobs I have had: (in no order whatsoever…)
    • Busboy/Dishwasher
    • Drugstore clerk
    • Radio Announcer
    • Public Relations Specialist
    • Data Coordinator

  8. Five bloggers that I wanna know more about:
So. Tag, you're it.

Just out of curiosity, why'd you pick the Writer In The Mountains?

By the way, Din't expect you to have much of an opinion on the poem ;)

These tag-fests tend to concentrate among bloggers one already knows. In my case it has been among Delaware-based bloggers. I thought, for a change, that I would go slightly random, but guided my choices by searching for blogs in places that I either have lived or would like to live. I am a huge Vermont fan; we have vacationed for years at Highgate Springs.

And Writer in the Mountains was one of the first blogs to pop up in a geo-enabled search of blogger profiles!
