Too lazy to think

I stole this from Christine (formerly 100 Reasons Why I Hate My Husband). I have no shame, and I have no ideas for a post. Besides, it's Sunday. No one reads or posts on Sunday, 'cept Hoss. Can't compete with the best, and Hoss is the best.

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Still working as an accountant and accounting systems analyst for the Commonwealth of PA. Pennsylvania is a commonwealth, not a state. Please don't ask me what the difference is.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

Just returned from a long trip to the western states. We hit Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, Seattle, Salem (didn't know Hoss then), Glacier National Park, Mt. Rushmore, you name it. Then we hosted the family for Thanksgiving.

5 snacks you enjoy:

1. Chocolate
2. Chocolate covered pretzels
3. Chocolate ice cream
4. Chocolate covered anything
5. Coffee, best with something chocolate to eat

5 songs to which you know all the lyrics:

1. Amazing Grace
2. Purple People Eater
3. The Star-Spangled Banner
4. White Christmas
5. Rock-a-bye Baby

5 things you would do if you were a millionare:

1. Give money to my kids
2. Give money to all kinds of causes and charities
3. Buy a vacation house at the shore (I think)
4. Travel
5. That's it. Millions don't go all that far.

5 bad habits:

1. Chocolate
2. Laziness
3. Cleaning other people's houses
4. Blogging
5. Not seeing other's points of view

5 things you like doing:

1. Eating. Especially chocolate
2. Reading
3. Blogging
4. Traveling
5. Being with my family

5 things you would never wear again:

1. Bell bottoms. Unless they come back into style.
2. Maternity clothes. (Yea! I'd rather be old than pregnant.)
3. Four-inch killer high heels
4. Hip huggers
5. Platform shoes

5 favorite toys:

1. Computer
2. Vacuum cleaner
3. Car radio
4. CD player
5. Obviously I don't have enough toys.

Let me know if you played.

Fun post. I'm glad to know that we get a cut if you win the lottery. :-)

Fred said...

Since I'm the teacher here, I couldn't resist giving a lesson. Here's the commonwealth explanation.

Are you blogging in in one room while AP3 is in the other room? Neat.

Monique said...

I read on Sundays!! Don't have a post of my own planned for today, though.

You clean other people's houses? In that case, I so have a proposition for you. You are invited to my house to clean any time and in exchange I will lend you my mom and her graph paper. Deal?

Klondike Kate said...

Chocolate lover - Yeah! And next time you're in WA state (yes, really a state not some other wonkey thing) look me up! I'll buy you a chocolate coffee!

schnoodlepooh said...

Your vacuum player is one of your favorite toys and your weakness is cleaning other people's houses! YAY for you! PLEEEEZZZZEEEE come visit me. PLEASE.

schnoodlepooh said...

Ooops vacuum CLEANER, I meant.

Christine said...

Wonder if you get lots of Chocolate for Christmas??? Sees is the best but I am having trouble getting into their web site to buy some gifts. I hope they didn't go out of business. Godiva has nothing on them and they are much cheaper. How did this turn into a commercial? lol

dddragon said...

LOL - we kids used to talk about giving mom a cassette tape of vacuum sounds as a gift. And I think that we all have had our houses cleaned by her - unasked.

And mom is very generous in so many ways.

And today she made me laugh out loud - Nod asked me what was so funny (he needs a laugh - he installed new hardware/software and now my pc isn't working right.)

Lucy said...

One of your favorite toys is a vacuum cleaner - now there's something you don't hear everyday. lol oh - and if that's not enough - i read on and see your kids considered giving you a casette w/sounds of vacuum cleaner ???? rotflmao

Doug said...

That is interesting to know about you. I don't think blogging is a bad habit, although it is getting harder to find a vein.

Minka said...

The vacuum cleaner, ey? Now how do you clean the vacuum cleaner itself?

Doughboy said...

Great site

Keep Standin' up for what you believe in'

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

What a fun post!

I wish I were too lazy to think! Maybe you can send some of those ions over to my blog! My brain is always in overload, which may be why I wake up at 3:45 am.

Libby said...

I'd like to be able to be too lazy to think, too! Unfortunately, my freakin' brain won't QUIT thinkin'! Which drives everybody nuts, cuz, when my brain is thinking, my mouth is also moving...(or my fingers!)
BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

lime said...

i knew i liked you for many reasons. if you ever get those millions and decide to travel i will take youto a cacao plantaion in trinidad. the smell is utterly intoxicating. it puts the smell of hershey , PA to shame.

Jamie Dawn said...

We were travelling on Sunday, but here I am reading your post on Monday.
I share your affinity for chocolate.
You mean to tell me you don't have the words to Row, Row, Row Your Boat memorized?

Keith said...

You seem to be a very-easy-to-please sort of a person.

Monika - That's easy. you have TWO vacuum cleaners. Each one cleans the other one. Personally I leave mine outside and the rain cleans it!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Actually, I vacuum off the top of the vacuum with the very vacuum that I'm using. Easy. I wipe it with a damp cloth. No problem at all.

I like to vacuum. What can I say? 'Tis a fact.

I'm home now. I left my house clean. I like to come home to a clean house.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I LOVE this! I'm going to steal it from you, byt I will give you credit!!! (lol)
Very Interesting!!! I'm with you on The Chocolate!!!

OldHorsetailSnake said...

5. Five bad habits.

...5: Not seeing others' points of view.

Liar, liar, pants on fire. This is simply not true. Replace this with; "Eating chocolate."

Meegan said...

Why am I suddenly craving chocolate?

AP3 said...

I played...

Lucy said...

i played today - had to do something today - so this was it.

actonbell said...

Great post! I knew you liked the vacuum cleaner. I didn't know you still sang that Purple Peopleeater song.

Leigh said...
