Singletude: A Positive Blog for Singles

Singletude is a positive, supportive singles blog about life choices for the new single majority. It's about dating and relationships, yes, but it's also about the other 90% of your life--family, friends, career, hobbies--and flying solo and sane in this crazy, coupled world. Singletude isn't about denying loneliness. It's about realizing that whether you're single by choice or by circumstance, this single life is your life to live.

Singletude Takes a Timeout for Tag

I'm it! I've been tagged by Full-Grown Single.

If, by chance, you were sitting alone, pondering what that goshderned Clever Elsie was doing on June 4, 2003, now is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to find out. Don't waste it!

What was I doing 5 years ago?
On this very night five years ago? Sleeping. I would've had work the next day. (Yes, folks, that's when I was a working stiff on the regular.)

Five things on my to-do list today (or things I did today):
1. Fed my roommate's rabbit.
2. Cleaned the rabbit's litter box. (Yes, I did say litter box.)
3. Cooked up the most delicious tacos this side of Texas.
4. Ordered some groceries and kicked my computer when it was too late to put in my order for tomorrow. Consoled computer.
5. Fed the rabbit again.
I know it sounds like I didn't do much, but you have to read between the lines. That's where the doing happened.

Five snacks I love, regardless of cost or nutritional value:
1. Hershey's Kisses
2. Girl Scout cookies
3. Starbucks coffee ice cream
4. Soft pretzels, any brand
5. Potato skins with sour cream

Five things I would do if I were a billionaire, assuming I had to spend it on me:
1. Write a novel.
2. Write a screenplay.
3. Write another novel. Repeat.
4. Write another screenplay. Repeat.
5. Travel the world.

Five bad money habits I have:
1. Living a life of ascetic denial and then splurging on six pairs of shoes at once.
2. Pretending I can stretch that $50 dinner into enough take-home meals to add up to what I would've bought with $50 in the supermarket.
3. Waiting till the last minute to pay the bills.
4. Stacking the bills in a pile to make them easier to remember, then forgetting about the pile.
5. No others. Really. Those four are enough.

Five (of the American) places I have lived:
1. New York
2. Connecticut
3. Th-th-th-that's all folks.

Five jobs I’ve had:
1. Teleresearcher
2. Medical Secretary
3. Copywriter
4. Freelance Editor
5. Webmaster

Five (three) bloggers I'm tagging:
Sailing on the RelationSHIP
Thinking Out Loud
Hopeless romantic
(No pressure to participate if you don't want to, though. I'll just track you down and bang on your door until you do, no biggie....Yes, that was a joke. ;))

I just wanted to say, you don't have to be a billionaire to write a novel. I would guess that a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny portion of the worlds novels have been written by billionaires. You probably think you don't have enough time to write a novel, but noone has enough time, even billionaires, to do all the things they want. Noone is stopping you....find a way to make it happen and get writing! :-)

Duh Only: Thanks for stopping by and for your encouragement on the novel. :) It's always nice to hear from new readers.

How does one console a computer? :o

Well, I don't do the tag thing, but what I do do (can I say those two words together like that?), is to write something about the person who tagged me....I have a lot of ammo Elsie lol Kidding.

Thanks for the tag, but I do write something about the person or there blog though. Hope you don't mind?

Stay well and remember to feed that rabbit, k? ;)

Clever Elsie said...

Full-Grown: I'll second that huzzah! :)

Bobby: No problem. Just be prepared for me to show up at your door with a sledgehammer. :P

Of course I don't mind if you want to opt out of the tag or substitute something else. You don't even have to write about me, although I certainly appreciate the offer. :) Do whatever strikes your fancy. It's up to you!

The rabbit, I'm pleased to say, has been reunited with his rightful owner. ;)

I'm a little late but I did it! Now I feel safer! Thanks by the way that made my day! I love being tagged but I don't tag back because I like being it!

Cat and Doubtful Dater: Thanks for playing and better late than never! :)
