It’s All About Meme

Beth, a blogger at CookiePie and a soon-to-be author of a dessert cookbook, tagged me for this meme. Since she was kind enough to think of me, I’ll take a break from my regular food posts and disclose some personal details.

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Practicing for my driver’s license exam.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

Gourmet online screen cap

Working at Court TV (now called TruTV) and dreaming of the food world. Lo and behold, I’m now at, building web pages, updating the news headlines, pitching food products for the weekly newsletter, and (woohoo!) working on an article for April.

Five snacks you enjoy:

  1. Granola and yogurt
  2. Fruit
  3. Chocolate
  4. Peanut butter anything
  5. Anything else that’s sweet

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

  1. Travel to Dubai, all 50 U.S. states and some other cool places
  2. Donate it to charities that fight hunger, AIDs and global warming
  3. Buy an apartment around Union Square in New York
  4. Treat my family and friends
  5. Go to Per Se or some other fancy restaurant

Five bad habits:

  1. Spending too much time on the Internet
  2. Eating too much chocolate
  3. Slouching
  4. Not getting enough sleep
  5. Being unsure of myself at times

Five things you like doing:

  1. Cooking/making dessert
  2. Socializing online
  3. Yoga
  4. Watching the performing arts
  5. Talking to my mom

Five things you would never wear again:

  1. A neon green parka that I wore for St. Patrick’s Day in high school. “Ouch! You’re hurting my eyes!” people said.
  2. Anything yellow (it’s a little too close to my skin color)
  3. 80’s-style leggings
  4. Ill-fitting shoes
  5. A tube top (I’ve never worn one before and don’t plan on it)

Five favorite toys:

  1. Food processor, because it can make almond macaroons, hummus and chocolate-hazelnut butter
  2. Ipod
  3. PC (no Macs!)
  4. Canon digital Rebel camera
  5. Oven

Now I tag Jessie at Cakespy, Niko at Dessert Buzz, Anita at Dessert First, Anna at Cookie Madness and Yoko at Virtual Frolic to participate!

    Cool, congrats on the job! A friend of mine works at CourtTV (well, TruTV I guess? He’s still there), wonder if you knew him 🙂

    Congrats and nice work on the job at gourmet! It would seem that you really hooked yourself up with a job that one (you maybe) could love.

    On your answers:
    Dubai is an intersting choice, I have always wanted to treat friends who have always been generous with me and we definitely share some bad habbits…

    I’ll follow through on the meme just as soon as I Google “what is a Meme” so I better understand the convention.

    Niko, no worries, I don’t really know what a meme is either. A college teacher explained it during a psychology of the Internet class, but I was half-asleep.
