When you get tagged by this guy, who got tagged by this guy, you can't refuse.

Here goes:

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Umm, living in the same place, and doing roughly the same job. OK, not exactly the same place. We remodeled the crap out of the main floor 10 years ago, and we did the same to the lower level this year, but it's still the same address. OK, not exactly the same job either. I've got 20 people working for me now. 10 years ago I was one of those people.

I did weigh 260 pounds and was a smoking couch slug 10 years ago. So that's a good thing to have behind me.

What are 5 non-work things on my to-do list today?
  1. With a little luck I'll have lunch at Tasty Taco in DM.
  2. Go ride mountain bikes with Jubil after work.
  3. Drink a couple of cold ones in my garage with Jubil after #2.
  4. Finish some painting in the basement (or maybe not after #3).
  5. Melt into a lazy boy after #4.

Snacks I enjoy
Umm, pretty much anything I can get my hands on. Fruit, chocolate, ice cream, even chips lately (ugh). As long as I ride enough I can get away with it. If I stop riding, I gotta be more careful. Is beer a snack? Then I gotta say Boulevard Pale Ale and Goose Island IPA (I'm a hop head).

Things I would do if I was a billionaire
I'd stop working and join my wife in the semi-retired state. I doubt we would move, cause nearly every one I know lives here. I'd ride my bike a bunch, and we'd also travel a bunch, and we'd give a bunch away. BTW, my electrician came real close to finding out recently. He got 4 out of 5 numbers and also got the Powerball on a lottery ticket It would been worth $54 million had he hit all 5 numbers. Sad that you can win $10,000 and be disappointed about it.

Places I have lived
This one's gonna be a little boring. Other that a 9 month stint in Riverside, California when I was a year old, I've lived within 8 miles of where I am sitting right this moment. I guess I like it here. Either that or I don't know any different. Plus, like I said, nearly everyone I know is here.

Jobs I've had
Pizza Delivery
Pizza Cook
Pizza Waiter (see a trend)
Software Developer
IT Manager

That's it. Bruce and Chris, you are it.

Now, now, now...I've already been tagged by Bidwell. I guess that makes me poison and ya can't tag me again. Ha!

I like your climb up the pizza ladder.

You need to go camp out in the woods for a week so you can say you lived in a forest. ;-)

See you at the time trial this weekend. I better go home and do some intervals to gear up for it...

Yes, I'm still here, just a little inactive right now. I'll be back writing about middle of the night training rides in sub zeros temps very soon.
