Ok, I am only about two weeks late in responding to this tag, but better late than never, right?

Thanks to Kim at
Hormone Colored Daze for the tag!

Here are the rules:

A. Post the rules at the beginning.

B. Answer the questions about yourself.

C. Tag 5 people and let them know in a comment on their blogs that they have been tagged.

What Was I Doing 10 Years Ago?
I was in my junior year of college. I had just broken up with a long-time boyfriend and found out that I wasn't accepted to the sorority that I had applied for. It was a rough semester!

Snacks I Enjoy:
Most anything. I love snacks. I've nicknamed myself "The Snackmaster." Being pregnant all the time doesn't help. Here are some faves: Doritos; dry Frosted Mini-Wheats; ice cream bars; Bagel Bites; Saltines and white cheddar; french bread and Alouette Creme de Brie; Starburst; Mike and Ike's.

Five Things on my To-Do List Today:
(1) remove this doggone chipped polish from my fingernails;
(2) type up the list of rules for the children's room at my church;
(3) put away the clothes that have been sitting on the chaise lounge in our room since last week;
(4) call one of my best friends to wish her a "happy birthday;" and
(5) call my old OB to see if she'll deliver me even though I've been going to a new OB for this pregnancy (it's complicated).

Things I Would Do if I Became a Billionaire:
Call my husband. Breathe a sigh of relief and do a happy dance. Give my job notice. MOVE to Miami where our family is. Set up trust accounts for the kids. Start shopping and pampering myself immediately. Buy my mom her dream car. Buy her the B&B she's always wanted to run. Donate money to and volunteer at charities that help homeless, hungry, and/or abused children. I could go on.

Three Bad Habits:
(1) I'm often late to things;
(2) I'm horrible at budgeting; and
(3) I overcommit myself.

Five Places I Have Lived:
1. Montreal, QC
2. Trinidad, West Indies
3. Gainesville, FL
4. Harlem, NYC
5. Silver Spring, MD

Jobs I Have Had:
1. Concession stand attendant at a skating rink
2. Telemarketer
3. Librarian's assistant
4. Receptionist in the student mental health center at my university
5. Associate at a NY law firm

Things People Don't Know About Me:
I'm very tired. People think that I'm this superwoman who does it all with all this magical energy and a big smile. The truth is...I'm so tired.

How's that for a depressing answer? Here are some things that are a bit more fun:

1. I want to go to cooking school one day;
2. My great-great-grandmother was Portuguese;
3. I did a dance number to
"I Wanna Have Some Fun" by Samantha Fox during a musical production in elementary school;
4. "
Raspberries" (hearing or seeing them) make my lips hurt; and
5. The fact that my two bottom front teeth are crooked runs on my mother's side of the family.

My turn! I tag:
AShorterStory; Jessica at APISS; Tanyetta at Days Like These; Dee at Tifi; and 3xMom at Confessions of a Three Time Mommy.

Ok, just watching that Samantha Fox video again after all these years made me realize how inappropriate that was for an elementary school number!! What was my teacher thinking? See for yourself:
