I was tagged by Twisted Cinderella. I NEVER do these things, but since I have never been asked by a Canandian I figured I would give this a wirl.
Ten Years Ago. September 1995
I was a freshman at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, TX probably bugging Geeky Gabe and eating at “The Table.” Man how I miss the table talks. I was also rooming with Jimi, aka “The Man.” About 30 lbs lighter than I am now.
Five Years Ago. September 2000
I was working in the same place I am now except in a different department shaggin’ inbound calls wearing one of those phone headsets which is equivilent to a dog being on a leash. Also was working on my MBA, and living with brotherGeeding sleeping on the coach trying to get up on my feet. Also wondering if I should be in a half-asian monastery because my luck with girls and dating sucked. About 15 lbs lighter than I am now.
One Year Ago. September 2004
Living in an apartment with wifeGeeding and dogGeeding in hopes of one day owning Geeding Manor. Working in the same department I am in now under a new manager who looks like Hermie the Elf from the Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer claymation special.
Dragged myself to work. Got home, played with dogGeeding and otherDogGeeding. Worked out, played Madden 2006 online. Spent “quality time” with wifeGeeding. Worked on a weak WiFi signal. Watched “our” tv shows. Watched the Daily Show with Jon Stewart whom I’m afraid I have a man crush on.

I love your answers! I watch Mythbusters with Prince Charming all the time.
I love the South Beach peanut butter protein bars! They’re my favorite, and I recently tried the chocolate crisp variety (not as good, but doable), but I refuse to try the cinnamon creme, because that just sounds nasty-ass. But I buy the PB bars in groups of 10. I have one for a snack midday, and I have another for dessert.
i am pretty sure bryan adams did not spell it “jimi”.
Ummmm, long time reader first time commenter… I don’t think we were freshmen in 95. That would have been year two. Correct me if I am wrong…
btw: How is your mom?
Good to hear from you Tim. We were college freshmen in Fall 94 and Spring of 95. So I guess you are right. My apoligies.
Well, it is confirmed, Mom has lupus and very bad osteoperosis. Please dont check my spelling. She’s been given some medication originally developed to fight malaria for the lupus and she has to inject herself with something everyday to help strengthen her bones. As a matter of fact she has two vertibrets that are fractured and causing her pain. But at least we know what is causing her all the pain and hopefully we are on the road to a more fun life for her. Thanks for asking, and it’s good to know you are a Bag reader.
I must reiterate, as I did on Bone’s blog, that Tunnell shall never, ever live down having worn “the pink shirt” to lunch. Amen.
today, pink is fashionable on men, but it sure wasn’t 7-10 years ago.
i just can’t bring myself to wear such a thing
Thankd Bag for letting us know more about you.I just had the feeling you were U2 fan.
one month from today I’ll be at a U2 concert and will have a whole bag of happiness
And speaking of South Beach protein bars: Drugstore.com is having a sale on them, and the per-bar cost is cheaper even than that at Wal-Mart, where I usually buy them. I just ordered 3 boxes of them. 🙂
*whistles innocently* Stocking stuffers for my friends, maybe . . . ? 😉
LOL–tricking your wife into marrying you! FUNNY!
