Linda tagged me. I think that means I have to answer this list of questions. Here goes:
What were you doing 10 yrs ago?
In March 1998, I was living in Columbia, South Carolina, working for the AP, waiting for my next job opportunity. I moved to SF in June.
Snacks I enjoy:
If I paid no attention to fat content, I'd love to chow down on chips and guacamole, those super-thick dipper potato chips and sour cream and onion dip, salt and vinegar chips. Basically, anything wonderfully salty and greasy.
Five things on my to-do list today:
Preparing for major event at work.
Confirming videographer in Oakland and Sacramento.
Rewriting press release over and over and over again.
Writing newsletter copy.
Things I would do if I became a billionaire:
Sock most of it away, so I can live the rest of my life doing only what I want to do. I would probably buy a house in Cole Valley. Travel lots and stay in super-swanky places. Write a book. On the do-gooder side, I'd donate a bunch of money to organizations that work with poor, young, black men. I feel like we've lost a generation of these kids already and it must stop ... but that's another post.
