I should have known better than to run out and tag people I don't know, paybacks suck. At any rate, I learned a little something about myself filling this out.....hopefully you will too, thanks to Nailpolishblues.....
10 Years Ago: I was finishing Fall Finals for my Senior year at Ohio University. Over winter break I met an old friend who spent a year studying in China, watching his videos inspired me to postpone grad school and move to Japan.
5 Years Ago: I was at a Law School Fair in Dayton, Ohio during a nasty ice storm. One look at the sunny pictures of Texas and I was sold. Mrs. T and I arrived in the Lone Star state less than five months later.
1 Year Ago: Mrs. T flew home to Japan to be with family while I stayed back and worked, so happy to finally be earning money instead of spending it on higher education.

Five Things I Would Do With A LOT Of Money: 1) I would buy the rights to Burger Chef from CKE Restaurants and revive the franchise. 2) I would launch my own media empire, it would feature a 24 hour cable news network with Juju Chang as lead anchor, absolutely no mention of Hollywood gossip, and all weathermen would be midgets. 3) I would purchase both the nations of Greece and Turkey, appoint myself Basileus and return the region to its ancient splendor (Temples to Aphrodite and all!) 4) I would become the sixth partner in BioWillie 5) I would create sustainable whale farms and start an international campaign promoting whale meat...it really is quite tasty and worth fighting for.
