Fauve made me do it

The rules:
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning of the post.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves in their post.
3. At the end of the post, the player tags 5 or so people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and to read your blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you've posted your answer.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Filing for bankruptcy. Preparing for Ex to quit his job and attempt to start his own computer business. (it was a bad time for good financial decisions. We didn’t make any) Chasing around cute, cuddley cherub like things (as opposed to arguing with tall, gangly, almost teenager type things).

2. What are 5 things on my list to do today?
- laundry
- install mostly legal copy of software I’ve been coveting.
- Mow lawn (just because it’s on the list doesn’t mean I actually intend to do it)
- Eat the last of the left over lasagna
- Drink the last of the Amaretto sours (envy my productivity skillz)

3. Snacks I enjoy:
- Chocolate.
- Fresh veggies if someone else has cut and prepared them for me.
- Naaaachooooos.

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
- Pay off all of my debt, including all the debt that went to Ex in the divorce.
- Build my dream house, which really isn’t so much a big fancy house as a regular house with all the little things that make me happy, like a big wrap around front porch and picture windows in the living room.
- Set aside $$$ for the Things for college and a boost when the go out on their own.
- Pay off all of SM’s debt and buy him the best vicious-cut-throat attorney available.
- Top notch “sisters” weekend with MyHope in Europe for MAJOR shopping and spa treatments and shopping and more shopping. Did I mention the shopping?
- Vacation in Greece with SM.

5. Three of my bad habits:
- I think I have to claim this one even though I stopped. I was a smoker. Then I was a “drinking smoker.” Now I’m an ex-smoker who falls off the band wagon every once in a while.
- I’m a little dictatorial with the Things. Some people say this is a good habit, some say it is bad. It works for us. This stems from being a lot anal retentive (which is probably the real bad habit here) and a need to not be out of control
- I apologize too much.

6. Five places I have lived:
- Phoenix, AZ
- Tucson, AZ
- Glendale, AZ
- Cowtown, WI
- Suburbia, WI

7. Five jobs I've had:
- Carpet cleaner
- Grocery Bagger
- Pharmacy Technician
- Burger flipper (for 4 days but I quit because I couldn’t stand the smell)
- Sales, Administration

8. How did you name your blog?
SalsaM kept telling calling me that. It seemed to fit me without labeling what kind of blog I had to write. I’m a mom but I’m not always a mommy blogger. I think I’m funny but I’m not a qualified enough to be a humor blog. And I got to post cute pictures of women’s butts. See, it’s win win.

And I shall tag:
All my lurkers.
(No that’s not cheating. You! Yes You! I tag you! Now you must leave me a comment saying you answered my MeMe and then I'll visit your blog (if you have one) and we can get to know one another.)

Thank you for tagging me Miss Fauve.

It took me 5 days to read this (I gots slow reflexes), but I was surprised to leand you lived all over AZ. Our last home before Nowhere was Tucson, and we managed to escape by leaving my only begotten son , whom I begetted myself, as a sacrifice.

When were you there? How did you like it?

I begotted 1.5 sons there. The .5 had the intial beget done in AZ and the beGetOut done in Cowtown. Begetting. It's a complicated process.

I grew up in AZ. I was moved there when I was young and without a choice. I loved going to UofA in Tucson. Amazing school and a fantastic campus. I have Ex-family there that holds my heart in their hands. But what do I think of the rest of it? It is the concrete surface of the sun. It is a crime laden cesspool surrounded by gorgeous sunsets and pretty mountains that are best viewed from the the air condioning of your home or car.

I was there from 1980 to 1997.
