Tag Along

Mardel tagged me. I decided to play along. I wish I was more interesting. Oh well, here goes...

What was I doing 10 years ago?
I had just finished graduate school and defended my MSc thesis (Title: Heteroditopic Receptors - all 134 pages of super geeky chemistry goodness written by little ole me. By training I am an organometallic chemist - here's a little tidbit to give you a taste of my research.). At the same time, I was finishing up my BEd degree as well. My husband and I just bought our house and were in the midst of some home improvements. You might say I liked to keep busy!

What are 5 things on my to-do list today?
1. Make up a gas law test for my grade eleven classes - check.
2. Make up an electrochemistry quiz for my grade 12 class - check.
3. Continue working on the exam for my grade 12 class - check.
4. Mark the gas law assignments from my grade 11 classes - in progress.
5. Go on a walk with my husband and Simon - hopefully later if it doesn't rain.

Snacks I enjoy.
vegetables and onion dip

Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
1. Buy 1000 acres.
2. Build a custom designed home on the property.
3. Adopt 10 dogs.
4. Fence in 5 acres in which the dogs could safely roam.
5. Give huge dollops of cash to any organization that cares for animals.

Places I have lived.
LaSalle, Ontario
Windsor, Ontario - which borders on LaSalle, Ontario
LaSalle, Ontario
I am basically a barnacle - I find a place I like and I stick to it.

What types of work have I done.
Research chemist
Chemistry teacher
Yup, that's it.

6 peeps I want to know more about.
If you're reading this, I tag you.

Not boring at all - or, at least, I'm the same way. ;)
Once I find something or someone I like, I tend to stick with it!

Mardel said...

Not boring at all! and I tend to stick to things and places I like. I kind of admire people who know what they want to do and do it (not like me).

That idea of building a house on your own land is good, but I'm so settled, I couldn't imagine where I would go.

What a fun little q&a! I just finished reading yours (which was not at all boring) so I'm tagged too? Cool beans. I'm posting my answers on my blog.

Hey, I'm with you about the animals. If I win bunches of $$, I will buy more land and have my own humane shelter and hire my Vet as the full time doctor!

Looking forward to watching your coat progress!

A barnacle. I like that. You can come visit my land (only 2 hours or so away I would guess) when you need some open spaces. I just got gome from a walk with my daughter back to our bush and the neighbours pond. We saw a wild turkey, a coyote, some jumping bass, a beaver lodge (no beaver today) and an animal that we are going to call a bear cause it was too black for a raccoon! But it was probably said raccoon.

Good stuff Shannon...you are a busy (and smart) woman. And I've finally been tagged by someone! Hallelujah. Mary (the sarcasm never ends)

Mary OK said...

Shannon, A barnacle! TeeHee! No, I agree with the others -- not boring at all. Very accomplished. Like the Mary above me, I welcome the opportunity to tag myself! Will answer the questions on my blog.
