Apparently, I'm "It"

Well, I got tagged. Which is just too bloggy for words, but what're you gonna do. I offer my filling out this survey as simple testament to my not feeling like doing work, and also my flattered-ness at being tagged by someone I've never actually met. This does not (do you hear me, Self? NOT) count as one of my four posts for February.

Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so.
1) Christopher
2) Damien Scott
3) Geek Boi
4) Tom
5) Gemma

Next, select five people to tag.
1) Connor
2) Mxzzy
3) Chloegoth
4) Cassie
5) Sarah N.

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was in eighth grade at an artsy, progressive private school in New York City. I was writing a play called Beyond That Road; Melissa Kantor was my English teacher; I was a very unpleasant person but was, for the first time in years, extremely social (being unpleasant or being antisocial are, as far as I can see, the only options in middle school).

What were you doing 1 year ago?
I was teaching theater through After School Matters, the same organization I work for now, subbing at a Montessori preschool, directing a play called Suit at the Around the Coyote Winter Festival and a children's Purim Spiel at a synagogue (which lat I'm doing again this year), and beinglonely and generally miserable.

Five snacks you enjoy
Ice cream
Celery and ranch dressing
Goldfish crackers
BLUEBERRIES, when they're in season
Apples, same as above

Five songs you know all the words to
Oh sweet jeebus. I know all the words to at least two hundred songs. (Seriously--I have a list.) But some of them are:
"Casimir Pulaski Day," Sufjan Stevens
"Gee, Officer Krupke," from West Side Story
"The Gallery," Joni Mitchell
"Heaven," Talking Heads
"I've Got a Match," They Might Be Giants

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire
Live in other countries for extended periods of time
Start a youth theater company and put on whatever damn plays we wanted
Support my family
Own a home
Set up an international scholarship fund and a coupla free clinics

I plan to do most of these things anyway (save the last one). If I were a millionaire, I would probably do them with greater ease, and more quickly, but I can't say I've much desire to be one.

Five bad habits
I bite, and pick dry skin off, my lips
I tear at my cuticles
I get addicted to uncomplicated computer games--Fowl Words, on ebaumsworld, is the current drug of choice
I'm a slob
I fill out online surveys!

Five things you enjoy doing
Directing and teaching theater
Talking with my friends
Baking, particularly when I add spiciness to a recipe
Taking long walks in cities

Five things you would never wear again
Neon loafers
Flowered flannel dresses

Five favorite toys
Hot glue guns
A white plastic horse named Vashti
A stuffed pig named Smiles
The Infernal Machine, a.k.a. my cellphone

That's out of my system. Now I've got to go immediately finish the other post I've been working on, so this one doesn't stay at the top of the blog for long.
