What’s with all this meme crap?

Keeping in theme with this blog, I am a sheep. We do memes. Didn’t you know? Actually, I don't understand why memes are the Rodney Dangerfield of posting. Not only are they fun to write, they are also fun to read. Anyway, I have been tagged for a meme by Average Jane ........

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I had just finished my graduate degree, moved to Kansas City and officially started working for The Man. I was so very homesick for Lawrence at the time - it was the first time in my life that Lawrence wasn't "central" in my life. Now, of course, Kansas City is "central" in my life - and my heart. While I still go to Lawrence at least once a week these days, I know that I could never live there again. It's true what they say: You can't go home.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Puking and hacking. I had just found out I was pregnant a few weeks back and morning sickness had began. THEN, I got a cold from hell. Not a fun combo. Fortunately, or not, I was on VACATION from the very worst job I have ever had -- working for the Federal Reserve. So there I was, on VACATION, PUKING, HACKING and still in utter shock at it all.
