What were you doing 10 yrs ago?

meme from susan, who tagged me

Ten years ago today I had the distinct misfortune of still being married to the ß, a mistake I would repair within the following year. Today ten years later, I am married to Susan.

Ten years ago today I owned two houses, one in Maryland where I on that day was pretending to live, and another in New Jersey where I’d earlier pretended to live before turning landlord. Today ten years later, I own one house, here in Texas.

Ten years ago today I was abandoning a position as head of my company’s actuarial research unit, heading onto a 9-year treadmill ultimately failing to find a way to perform the services I originally was appointed to perform for that organization. Today ten years later, I work for the federal government.

Ten years ago today I weighed as much less than I weigh now as I on that day exceeded what I had weighed five months earlier.

Ten years ago today I was macheide on AOL. Today ten years later, I am macheide here at wordpress, among various other scattered sites on the Internet.

Pets?

meme from susan

A

Not enough.

We need a few more cats. And another husband for Gertie to murder. And an aquarium of tropical fish. And some ducks.

And may I have an alpaca, please?

What is your shoe size?

meme from susan

A

Just enough to fit over my feet.

My father used to sell shoes. My younger brother too. They would both confirm that’s the size shoe I ought wear. Enough said.
