I've been Hit!

By a meme, that is, courtesy of Brian. So here goes. Nonbloggers, I may tag you too, so don’t skip this one!

The rules for this particular meme are as follows:Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot. Easy, no?

1. Vince
2. Spider
3. Mr. Secret, Woe
4. Mr. Brian
5. The Subversive Librarian

Then you get to select five people to pass the love on to. This is the best part. Check the following blogs in the next day or two (or my comments, if they don’t have blogs) to see what they have to say about me and my meme.

1. Redneck Mother
2. The Velveteen Rabbi
3. James D.
4. Joey C.
5. Ms. Monkeythong

Joey and James, you can post your answers here, or send me an email and I’ll post it for you.

    What were you doing 10 years ago?
    Living in Athens GA...Hmm, checking old journal: apparently trying to make things work in my then-relationship, since there is no journal entry between 11/18/05 and 3/21/96. I mostly wrote in it when I was upset.

    Mostly, the same things I'm doing right now, except perhaps for feeling slightly less positive about life in general at that time.

    Five songs to which you know all the lyrics:
    1. "White Christmas"
    2. "Amazing Grace" / the Melodivas version called "Grace" is my favorite though, since we sing "Saved a soul like me," instead of "wretch;" and "Taught my heart to sing"
