Random Answers to Random Questions

16 Jul

I have been tagged again, this time by my lovely cyberpal/blogging bud G at Mirage As Usual.  Truth of the matter is I have seen this tag do the rounds of blogs I read and somehow I had sensed it would reach me sooner or later.  So here are my random answers:

1.  WHAT WAS I DOING 10 YEARS AGO?

I can’t remember much of what 1998 was about.  But there is one date, June 28, 1998, that stick out like a sore thumb.  It was on that day that I started my employment here at the same company where I presently work.  Which means, I have just marked my 10th year anniversary with the same company.  10 years!!!!! Talk about staying power.  On June 28, 2008, my husband and I went out for Mexican food (my perennial celebratory food) to celebrate the date.  He asked if I was celebrating my entry to this company and why???? My reply garnered a chuckle and a big hug:  I was not celebrating my entry to this company.  I was celebrating the fact that from this day on, I won’t be working with _____(my former employers) in a job that sucked to the high heavens.  He chuckled because he knew I was telling the truth and that the celebration was reasonable and well deserved.  He worked there too at the same time I was there.  That was where I met my husband. 

2.  WHAT ARE THE FIVE THINGS ON MY TO-DO LIST TODAY?

  1.  
    1. Decide on the specific cake I want to bake.
    2. Fold laundry.
    3. Make a grocery list for Friday’s trip to Costco.
    4. Upload pictures to costco.com for prints.
    5. Update blog

3.   SNACKS I ENJOY:

Green mango with bagoong, chips (who doesn’t love them?), watermelon seeds, cornick, ukoy

4.  PLACES WHERE I LIVED:

  •  
    • Guerrero Street —-Tarlac
    • Buencamino Alley, San Sebastian Street, and MH Loyola Street —-Manila
    • East Bay—-San Francisco Bay Area (California)

5.   THINGS I’D DO IF I WERE A BILLIONAIRE:

  •  
    • Buy houses for family
    • Travel
    • Set up foundation to send needy children to school
    • Give to charities (red cross, foundations for the preservation of parks, i.e. Yosemite, Kings-Sequioa, etc.)
    • Buy the San Francisco Giants team (hehehehe, totally selfish side of me)
    • Build a totally rad rec center in my hometown equipped with the latest gadgets for kids and teeners to have a place to learn and play

6.  PEOPLE I WANT TO KNOW MORE ARE:   Geri, LizzaMr. Baker, Rachel,Megamom, and BW.

    Wow! I can sense that: years at work weren’t really paradise, but you met your better half sometime while there, very nice story!

    Your answers in #3 & #4 pretty much confirmed that you’re Pinoy, kasi all the while I had the impression that you just lived there for a while (as a student)…
    Well, ano gagawin mo after buying the team? hihi

    Thanks for doing this M, am glad that you did.

    Hahaha, love your billionaire list! I think I’d do a lot of those too, except I’d buy a different football team. The other kind of football–soccer! 😀

    I haven’t been around for quite a while now, and I missed learning about this blog of yours.

    Will do the tag, I will. Thanks for thinking of me.

    P.S. Marunong kang mag-kapampangan?

    Thanks for the tag. I’ll try to do it soon.

    Talking about green mango and bagoong, I just had some indian mango recently. I like it half ripe with bagoong.
