5 Things

I was tagged by Amy for this one so here goes...

5 Things I was doing 10 years ago:
-Living back in Canada after my first year in Japan on a one-year Working Holiday Visa.
-Selling souvenirs to tourists. (Oh the joys of working retail!)
-Relying on public transport- not fun at all with the infrequent bus service.
-Wishing for snow! (Some things never change!)
-Wondering what to do next. (I would end up going back to Japan the following year, where I met my husband and the rest, as they say, is history...)

5 Things on my T0-Do List today:
-Make my New Years cards
-Print some photos
-Plan some lessons
-Have a nap?

5 Things I would do if I were a millionaire:
-Buy or build a house somewhere nice.
-Have a custom library built in the house with ceiling-high shelves, a fireplace, comfy chairs...
-Invest some of it.
-Donate some of it to charity.

5 Things I'll never wear again (or have never worn):
-mini skirts
-stiletto heels
-French maid Halloween costume
-long, curly hair

5 Favorite Toys:
-digital camera
-DVD player and projector

5 People to tag:
A lot of people have already done this one so I won't tag anyone specifically but if you haven't and would like to please feel free to grab it. Let me know if you do so I can come see your answers.


  1. I like your description of your hope-to-have-someday library. :-)

  2. Loved reading and discovering you a little more.

  3. I enjoyed reading about your dreams and discovering unknown facts about you.

  4. Great answers! Thanks for playing!

  5. Ooh nap - that's a good thing! I get the feeling I'm going to be slacking a lot on my list of things to do today. It's cold and rainy so a nap sounds great :)

  6. Wendy- I think all readers would love to have their own personal library! :)

    inspired and shark- Thanks for stopping by.

    quintarantino- Glad you enjoyed reading my answers.

    Amy- Thanks for the tag. :)

    Iliana- I didn't get around to my nap but then I didn't get through all the stuff on my list either. I did do some laundry and I did spend a few hours playing with my stamps and inkpads for my NY cards though. :p

  7. Now i have to ask you all these questions! How did you end up going to Japan in the first place? Why did you go back? Is your husband Japanese? How did you meet him? Ok, I think I'm done!

  8. Janet- LOL! Ok, this may end up being a really long comment so I'll email you. :)

  9. What a fun meme! My book reviews are few and far between this month, so I'll have to supplement with memes. This is perfect. I'll accept your tag (although many of my answers will be exactly the same as yours!).

  10. Les- I've been busy and haven't been reading as much lately either. You could always post photos. I'd love to see some of your snow! :)
    I'll look out for your post with your answers.
