The 5 Things Meme

I've been tagged for a meme by Purple Kangaroo via my blog with Anne, chocolate and peanut butter.

The 5 Things Meme

But first the rules to this meme game:
Remove the blog at #1 from the following list and bump every one up one place;
add your blog's name in the #5 spot;
link to each of the other blogs for the desired cross pollination effect.

1. Melody
2. -A-
3. Heather
4. Purple_Kangaroo
5. Unclimber

Next: select new friends to add to the pollen count. (No one is obligated to participate).
You can just put blogs you read if you want to.
1. Donna at Sunny Side Up
2. Robbo at Llamabutchers
3. Mike at Clanlally
4. Rat Boy's blog
5. Julie's blog
Honorary 5. My cousin Kaila's blog, but I can't reveal her address lest her dad find it...
Honorary 5. Anne over at EconoMom (she's technically already been tagged via our joint blog, chocolate and peanut butter, but I want to send some linky-love her way)

Here's the game:
What 5 Things do you miss about your childhood?
1) Being in daily contact with my brother, Richard
2) Living with my family, it was a loving house and a lot of fun
3) Very few responsibilities -- doing well in school and that was pretty easy
4) The family cat
5) Vacationing with the family -- we went interesting places and had lots of fun, and I only had to pack for me!

Name your 5 favorite cartoons -- I haven't watched any of these in awhile, but I still love them
1) Simpsons
2) South Park
3) The Family Guy
4) King of the Hill
5) hmmm...I liked the Smurfs as a kid

Following the Purple Kangaroo: "I'm going to add a few more lists of 5 things I found on selkie's blog just now"

Five snacks I enjoy:
1) Nestle's Treasures -- chocolate candy with a peanut butter filling

Five things I would do with $100 million:
1) Get therapy -- with all that money, I'd probably need it
2) Feel really, really guilty
3) Get more therapy to deal with the guilt
4) Worry about: where to give it, how to keep it, losing it, wanting more
5) Get more therapy to deal with the stress of having too much money

Five places I would escape to:
1) My home
2) Escape from what?

Five bad habits: easy enough, I'm probably immune to a couple of the Seven Deadly

5) Bad language

Five things I like doing:
1) buying used books
2) scrapbooking and reading -- these are my evening activities
3) unschooling
4) volunteering with my state's homeschool organization
5) doing things with my family when no one is cranky, whining, or needs a diaper change

Five things I'd never wear:
1) a tattoo -- my views change constantly, I can't commit to something so permanent
2) a navel ring, tongue piercing, etc.
3) a studded leather collar -- well, not anymore
4) a chasubule
5) stiletto heels

Five TV shows I like: ohh, I can get all haughty here, I don't watch TV shows for myself

5) The lack of worries

Five favorite toys:
1) The internet
