Tag! I'm it!

Georgiana tagged me with the 10-20-30 meme. You have to say what you were doing 10, 20, and 30 years ago. Let's hope I can remember!

Um, ten years ago I was seven-months pregnant with my daughter. That I remember. Living in the OC, just a few miles from the beach. Sigh.

Twenty years ago I was in college at the University of California, Riverside. I'm guessing at that point my major was still English. I don't think I'd switched it to Business Administration yet. I can't remember if I was working for IBM then or the local newspaper. I do remember I was living in a cute art deco bungalow and drove a 66 Mustang.

Thirty years ago I was in third grade and Mrs. Bunch was my teacher. I liked her a lot. She had a daughter my age (we ended up in the same class in high school). I had a blue bike with a banana seat and got to ride it to school, about a mile away, through some empty fields and orange groves.

Whew! I think that used up my brain cells for the day.

I tag Michelle, Jenny, Diana (who's always looking for memes), Mike (who needs to update his blog and it's fun to see what he can't remember), Angie, and Chris. It's really sad that I know people too young for this meme!

And just to show how bad my memory is. I was in 4th grade with Mrs. Carmean, not 3rd grade. Duh! I loved her. She taught us to love the English language. I actually wrote a story about her that got published in Rest Stops for Teachers.

Banana seats on a bike--I'd forgotten about those! Living close to the beach is something I can only imagine with a big breathy sigh =)

Oh, man, you are so bad! Okay, I'll post something but today I'm on a roll with writing. Checking email is my reward for over 1000 words before 10:30 AM. Hummm.
