Numbers Meme

I'm a little lacking in the snarky comments on this one. Sorry.

1. One thing about the holiday season I hate: Christmas decorations going up three months before the holiday. Come on people! I think it should be a law that no Christmas decorations, items, sales, or music is allowed until the day after Thanksgiving.
2. Two bad habits: Fingering my hair and dog-earing (personal) books
3. Three jobs I’ve had in my life other than my current one: Telemarketer, waitress, babysitter
4. Four things on today’s to do list: Grade vocab quizzes, buy birthday party stuff for DramaBoy, put together little gift bags for DramaBoy's classmates for school tomorrow, and read books to my boys
5. Five people I miss the most: Melissa, Lauren, Ariane, Mom, and Dad
6. Six places I’ve lived other than where I am now: Ferkessedougou, Cote d'Ivoire; Horsely's Green, England; Albertville, France; Bouake, Cote d'Ivoire; East Lansing, Michigan; Southfield, Michigan
7. Seven things I’d do if I were a billionaire: Pay off all my family and friends' debts (as well as our own), buy a house with a huge library and buy all the books I want, travel the world with ComputerDaddy (I guess the kidlets could come too), fully support all my family and friends who are missionaries, set up scholarships for young people of various sorts, fill my closet with gorgeous shoes, and RELAX.
8. Eight places I'd like to visit before I die: Australia, New Zealand, Venice, Prague, Japan, Kenya (again), Ireland, the Caribbean
9. Nine people from history I'd love to meet: Jane Austen, William Shakespeare (to see if he was really the author!), Dorothy Parker, Queen Elizabeth I, Eleanor Roosevelt, Allen Ginsberg, Emily Dickinson, Mary Magdelene, Anne Boleyn
10. Ten years ago I was: so much less mature than I am now. Though I'm sure that in another ten years I'll think the same thing about the current me.

I'm going to be totally unexpected and NOT tag anyone for this blog in particular. But if you'd like to play along in the comments or in your own blog, go for it!

3 bits of love:

I didn't know you lived in Albertville, France. When did you live there? We were there in 91/92. Small world.

It was an age ago! We moved there when I was all of eight months old so my parents could take language study. We were there for a year or so, I believe. I've visited France since, but that was the only time I actually lived there.

It's not as odd as you may think--it apparently was a central location for learning French for quite a while!

I love it that you miss me. And that if you were a billionaire you'd buy the rest of our house and complete our support picture. Ahhhhhhhhhh -- see you soon! Love, TeacherMommy's mom
