Tagged: You'll Wonder How You've Gone Your Whole Life Not Knowing This

Jilly Bean has tagged me, here goes:

10 years ago:
I was a freshman at SUU, meeting lots of new friends, spending too little time sleeping and studying and too much time admiring (some may or may not call it "stalking") the cute guy who lived across the street. I've since discovered that he is gay (which explains his impeccable sense of style and my last answer on this post will probably explain my poor sense of gaydar).

5 things on my to-do list today:
1. Go to work 2. Make the bed 3. Meet some friends for a yummy sushi lunch 4. Go to pilates with Diania 5. Update the Z Pizzeria website

Snacks I enjoy:
It may be easier to list snacks I don't enjoy. Some of my favorites, though: Farley Gummy Bears from Big Lots (trust me on this, they are seriously incredible--perfect texture, flavor and opacity level and this store is the only place to get them); root beer floats and fresh veggies. Also, anything in the cheese family--brie, gruyere and Easy included.

Things I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire:
Anything I want, no matter how ridiculous--when you have that much money you're not weird, just eccentric! I would also travel the world, stopping at least twice at the countries with the best desserts; take care of my friends and family (because it's no fun to have all this free time on my hands if there's nobody to play with!); build new facilities for the YWCA of Salt Lake City (shameless plug: the Y's shelter annually serves more than 500 women and children who are victims of domestic violence, houses and cares for a dozen girls & their babies in the teen home; and reaches more than 8,000 women & their families annually with its additional programs and community outreach. You can learn more and/or donate here); build a fantastic place for stray cats, dogs and other animals so that they never have to be put down just because they don't have a home.

3 of my bad habits:
Procrastinating; Starting things and not finishi--Hey! What's that over there?!; Being a terrible housekeeper. I just really, really hate cleaning the house.

5 places I have lived:
Price, Cedar City, Las Vegas, Boston, S-L-C bab-y

Jobs I have had: Fashion consultant at world-renowned Fashion Crossroads on Price's Main Street (I don't know if you've been there, but trust me, it's a really big deal); telemarketer (although approximately 45% of my time was spent prank calling the people who were rude to me when I called them the first time); PR agency intern (job highlights: saying the riveting phrase to Robert DeNiro, "Chopsticks are fun!", accidentally hitting Rebecca Romijn in the butt ); and various ad agency PR positions

Things people don't know about me:
I have a thing for early 90's gangsta' rap (favorites include Dr. Dre, Warren G and Tupac); At one point in college I seriously considered being a sports reporter and had an internship lined up at the Las Vegas CBS affiliate; and I had a crush on Boy George when I was a kid (which may explain why I have a natural connection with gay men).

Now, I tag Amanda, Abby, Diania, Teri, Natalie & Marcae. You're it!

Miranda, I know where to go if I need a good laugh. My favorite was "gaydar." I had to re-read that a couple of times before I caught on!

I will say you were probably one of the best employees Fashion Crossroads ever had. Did you get an employee discount there?
