Fun with Fives

Thanks to Carrie for tagging me...

10 yrs ago:
1995 - Oh man, that was the life. I was still in college (third year) in a six-instructor architecture studio. They were experimenting with class sizes that year, and ours was huge.

I was hanging with my friends Doug and Todd M., drinking, going to Midnight Bowling at Lee-Hi lanes, buying 5 CDs a week at The Record Exchange, and playing around with Windows 95, my new CD-ROM and a handheld scanner.

5 yrs ago:
2000 - Substantially less fun than '95 but still cool. I was unemployed that whole year, so Kevin and I would ride around to all the malls nearby. At the time, I was still coming to grips with my grandma passing away that February, and we were putting the finishing touches on Forest Oaks Country Club, which I poured my time, money, labor and design skills into developing.

Last yr:
2004 - I had just gotten back from my second holiday trip to New York, and I was looking forward to Christmas. I think I had finished paying on the layaway for my diver's watch at Fink's, too.

Snow. I stayed in and did some work around here. Nothing too hot, but okay

5 most yummiest things:
Gummi Worms
Fried Chicken
Shrimp & Chips (there's a pub at South Street Seaport that nails it)

5 things I know by heart:
Belk charge account number
Square footages of department stores
Road directions

5 things I’d do if I had a lot more money:
Travel more

5 things I’d never wear!
