Meg tagged me with a meme. Despite my best effots to abandon the blog, I will post it here for your enjoyment. :-)

1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

I was starting my first week of work for a US Senator in Washington DC one week after graduating from college. One of the greatest and worst experiences of my life- so glad I did it, so glad I knew when to quit and leave the east coast. I've come a long way, baby.

2. What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:

Enjoy BBQ with my Mom and Brother visiting from New Mexico.
Empty Mr. C's car- it's full of antiques that my Mom and I drove back from New Mexico over the holiday weekend.
Find an alterations person so I can get a new pair of pants hemmed.
Drink enough water.
Post this meme to my blog. (Check!)

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Fruit- apples, berries, apricots, etc.
Pita and hummus, espeically the delicious jalapeno and cilantro variety I can get here in Austin.
Wendy's french fries.
Peanut butter on anything- apples, crackers, a spoon....

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Pay off the house, the cars, the student loans, and those of the ones I love.
Make a major donation to the University of New Mexico School of Law, and some favorite charities.
Fund a permanent fellowship for my friend K, who wants to provide legal services to those who cannot afford them.
Travel. A lot. Not necessarily extravagantly, but make a habit of stepping outside day to day life on a regular basis.
Do whatever I can to support my family and ensure that my hypothetical children grow up to be well adjusted, non-spoiled, functional members of society.
