1. What were you doing five years ago?
I was probably watching TV and feeling guilty about something I wasn't doing. On a larger scale, we'd been in our home a year, so I was feverishly decorating. And Julia was vomiting words. And Chris was having anxiety stomach aches. And Seth was grinning and sniffing boogers. And Ash was having his cell phone taken away. And husband was worrying needlessly.
2. Where would you like to be in five years?
Same glorious neighborhood and home, writing brilliantly while adoring children maintain 4.0 GPA's in high school and college, and serve missions and are perfect and tell anyone who'll listen what a magnificent mother they have and going on dates with pumpkin pie husband and paying off bills and aging backwards like Benjamin Button and miraculously losing weight while increasing empty calorie consumption and having long, luxurious fingernails that don't split like a banana and cuticles that don't snag pantyhose. Is that too much to ask?
3. What is on your to do list?
I prefer to let others recall for me, what I've signed up to do. Hopefully, they're on the ball enough to make a reminder call or send an email, so I don't disappoint them.
4. What are five snacks that you enjoy?
Five? Seriously? That's just silly. A better question would be what are five categories of snacks you enjoy. But I'll do my best. Hot tamales, cinnamon bears, Hershey's bars, truffles, doughnuts, Good-n-Plenties, Twizzlers, Chiklets, all fruits, most vegetables, almonds, all things carb and a refreshing beverage over rabbit poop ice. I start to feel ill when I get too much blood in my sugar level.
5. What are five things you would do if you were a billionaire?
This is something I've considered (obsessed about) on occasion (daily) as Ster and I like to imagine (plan on) winning the lottery~you know, just for fun (when bills come due.) Anyway, a quick run-down...pay off all financial obligations, including parentals. Hire a chef, housekeeper and someone to raise my children to adulthood. Just kidding. I can clean my own house. Next, I'd hire an assassin to kill off political enemies. Only two more? Crap. Um, how about worldwide travel and last but not least, HOST A GIANT BURIED TREASURE BIRTHDAY PARTY...and then speedily forget where I hid the chest.
And there you have it, folks! I know. Even more of me to love, now that you know my innermost Princess Lisa thoughts. And I, too, am amazed at the depth and breadth of my soul.
So now I tag some other BBFF's that I'd love to hear from~
Brenda, at Just a bed of roses, because she makes and sells the MOST glorious stuff~just like me.
And Mimi at Mimi Sue's Cottage, because she's inspiring~just like me.
And Marcy, at a Girl in a Gorilla Suit, because she likes hysterical tampon commercials~just like me.
And Sydney at The Daybook, because her photography is truly stunning~just like me.
And lastly, Kate, at Smug marrieds, because she has beautiful feet~just like me.
Enjoy them all, friends. Feel free to love and adore them...just not as much as you do me, or I'll have to cut you.
(I'm mouthing the word "seriously.")
