Time Machine July 28 ’05

I was not tagged, but instead pinched this from jdidthoughts.

I am tagging eyaniev, bluemoaner, oyasdawta, buttongoddess and isharah though.

Here it is:

10 years ago: I was literally recovering from the breakup with TMG. Lotsa crying, lotsa heartache. I was freelancing at the Trinidad Guardian and in psychoanalytical psychotherapy, and completely not enjoying 21.

5 years ago: I had just had a huge fight with my mother, and moved out and went to live with a rastaman friend of mind, up on a hill in a shack with no running water, unreliable electricity and serious holes in the roof. Although I didn’t know it, my best friend was dying and had less than two weeks left to live.

1 year ago: I had just arrived in London, and had gotten my Tube ID (now lost it seems along with every travel card and train ticket I bought since and my Oyster card to boot). I was feeling freer and felt like England would provide me with endless and ample opportunity to prosper and grow.

Yesterday: I mostly worried about where I was going to live after Monday, and thought more about TMG and his reappearance in my life. I also read Dune and tweaked ndelamiko.net.

Today: Had a business meeting to redevelop a web site (GOT THE CONTRACT); went to see the babalawo I’ve been working to collect something he had for me that’s going to help my situation(s).

Tomorrow: Going to check out this room in a house where I can stay until the end of August. Might go out somewhere with tulpa_team (although I really need to buckle down and pack!) or go hang out with Rentaempress who is riding out on Sunday to parts named Zurich, because of a man with an unfortunate first name.

5 snacks I enjoy: chocolate, tuluum, raisins, chip chip, sugar cake

5 bands/singers that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs: Live, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Missy Elliot, Anthony Hamilton, Jodeci

Things I would do with $100,000,000:
Pay my debts (not too much, but enough); buy a house in England, a house in Trinidad and one in Dominica; buy a car; start Sunhead for real; let my mother retire and pay for any kind of vacation she wanted.

5 locations I’d like to run away to: Hawaii, Brazil, Peru, New Zealand, Tahiti

5 bad habits I have: smoking, smoking, smoking, smoking and fucking smoking

5 things I like doing: Reading, writing, watching movies, listening to music, collecting music

5 things I would never wear: micro minis (although I did in my wild teen days), gold or silver shoes (if you see me with that shit, I’m possessed call a priest with exorcism skills), bikinis, lamé of any colour, plastic shoes

5 TV shows I like: (not necessarily current, oui?) X-Files, Star Trek: Voyager, Dr. Who (Tom Baker days), Danger Mouse, Pimp My Ride

5 movies I like: Star Wars (all), Lord of the Rings (all), Dune, The Lover, The Fifth Element

5 famous people I’d like to meet: Nalo Hopkinson (although I’m a blog stalker of hers already), Octavia E. Butler, Stephen King, Colin Channer (although he may not qualify as a ‘famous’ person), Tananarive Due

5 biggest joys at the moment: my MP3 collection (19,000 songs strong 58 days worth), my books, my DVDs, my laptop, my iPod

5 favorite toys: my MP3 collection (19,000 songs strong 58 days worth), my books, my DVDs, my laptop, my iPod
