Cate has tagged me for this meme, which is the Peeps I Want To Know More About meme. Here are my responses.

The rules: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1) What was I doing ten years ago?
I was graduating from grade 6 (I know, I am still just an infant), I was getting ready to move to Tatamagouche which was new for me. One of my best friends (caitie) was staying behind in Antigonish and my other best friend (lauren) moved to Australia. It was rough.

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

wow, I almost only do work things these days. Let's see,
I am going out to dinner with Mary and her family, as Mary is leaving tomorrow
I visited with my parents because they were in town
I want to work on the sock I am currently knitting, and finish it so I can get back to my sweater
I am going to mope around because Mary is leaving and I am going to be lonely
The cats need snuggling

3) Snacks I enjoy:
I love soooo many foods including, but not limited to:
Popcorn, nachos, artichoke dip, apples and peanut butter, cheese and crackers, candy, peanut butter or oatmeal cookies, yoghurt...

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
I would study more and possible do a Ph.d, but I wouldn't work at the same time, I would just enjoy school. I would buy a house on the coast, build a barn next to it and stock with sheep and Icelandic horses. I would also get a dog for the house. I would pay of the debts of my loved ones and buy them hybrid cars (maybe one for me too). I would travel to far corners of the earth. I would give money the to NDP and Barack Obama. I would travel to visit friends and family who are far apart from me. Really I would do whatever the hell I felt like!

5) Places I have lived:
Charlottetown, PEI
Halifax, NS
Antigonish, NS
Tatamagouche, NS
Akureyri, Iceland
Saint John, NB

6) Jobs I have had:
Museum tour guide at a Fossil Centre
Jam Maker
Self employed at the Farmers Market as a knitter and Smoothie maker (no joke!)
Teaching Assistant
Usher, bartender and coat check attendant at the Rebecca Cohen
Personal care worker
Research Assistant
Field Organizer for the Maine People's Alliance (mostly door to door canvassing)
Mucker of horse stalls
Tree planter
Candle polisher and labeler for my step mom's candle business
Occupational Therapist

7) Peeps I want to know more about:

Can't find your e-mail, so I'll just leave a message here.

There are two add-on kits for the Kiwi wheel. One is for lace and one is for heavy yarn and high volume bobbins. You can get expensive specialty wheels that do one thing VERY well, but the Kiwi can do EVERYTHING fairly well. In terms of cost it's definitely your best bet.
