I've been tagged by Dee D who is a beader and a fellow Raveler -- luckily for all of us, these tagging questions are short!

The rules of the game are that each player answers the following five questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags five or six other people. The player should then notify those individuals that they have in turn been tagged. Also, once you have posted your answers, please let the person who tagged you know.

1. What were you doing ten years ago? I was with my husband at the US Embassy in Moscow, Russia, and working at the Embassy. Ten years ago in August was also the "crash" of the Russian ruble where the currency went through a workout, and then started forward to the strength it enjoys today. We had to pre-pay a big dinner for a visiting VIP and had quite a lot of money in rubles on hand. When the rubles crashed, I couldn't spend that money fast enough as the stores were being emptied. I do have a huge "rock" blue topaz ring though!

2. What are five things on my to do list? oh my, only 5 things. We'll be moving at the end of the summer, so my immediate to do list starts with:
go through and get rid of clothes I'll never wear again
organize and sort and get rid of old toiletries
go through all my quilting patterns and saved projects to sort
continue to think about what knitting projects I'll take for traveling, and
try and stop talking about all the moving organizational woes!
3. Snacks I enjoy.
that's a hard one -- I love most snacks but really try and not keep anything in the house, so I'll say yogurt

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire?
give most of it away

5. Places I have lived?
SOME of the places I have lived:
ThessalonĂ­ki, Greece
Lahore, Pakistan
Moscow, Russia
Yerevan, Armenia

6. Peeps I want to know more about.

Will answer this when I get back from work in the afternoon. Interesting questions, not too tricky to answer.
