I've been tagged by Uncle Jim at A Second Chance. Here we go...

The rules of this game are as follow:

1 - Each player answers the questions about him or her self.
2 - At the end of the post, the player 'tags' five people and lists their names.
3 - The player then goes to their site and advises them they've been tagged.
4 - The player then asks the newly tagged to read tagger's blog.

What was I doing 10 years ago?

Gosh, I can hardly remember what I was doing ten minutes ago. Well, ten years ago I was involved with my diocese' Discerning Group praying over the call to the priesthood. I've mentioned this story a number of times already to some of you, so I wont go into it in great detail. It was, however, a very positive experience and many of the men I attended with have, indeed, been ordained!

Name 5 things on your 'to-do' list today (Wednesday).

1) Go to work
2) Take my grandmother to the doctor
3) Go on-line to a buy a graphics card for my computer (I'm building a new one)
4) Go grocery shopping
5) Laundry

What things would I do if I were a billionaire?

1) Get out of Las Vegas
2) Buy a cottage AND a house somewhere in New England
3) Fly out to Europe and repeat answer 2
4) Better the lives of my friends and family
5) Realize I DON'T have to be a billionaire to live the life I want, so start giving the money away to people who really do need it (sounds as cliche as the answers at a Miss America pageant, I know, but that's exactly what I would do)

Name 3 bad habits or qualities.

1) Impatience
2) Sometimes pessimistic
3) Sometimes too idealistic

Name 5 places I've lived

I'm not as cosmopolitan as some of you folks, so my list is somewhat concise:
1) Las Vegas
2) Miami
3) San Diego
4) Key West (very briefly)

Name 5 jobs I've had.

Well, in my younger days I worked as a bus-boy, a waiter, clerk, and retail attendant.

Name 5 books I've read recently.

1) Ghost Story
2) The Eastern Catholic Churches
3) The Wisdom of the Saints
4) The Mist
5) Letter to a Man in the Fire

I tag any of you blogger-buddies of mine and any wayward soul that stumbles unto this blog.

I'll consider myself tagged... 'cause it's more fun than putting away the laundry and dishes that currently await me!

Well I don't feel like I got to know you any better by reading this...but then, I do suspect that you are a reserved kind of person who doesn't like to give too much away....so hey, perhaps I DID learn something about you after all!
