Debi tagged me, I’ve been watching this tag go around for a while, I was kind of hoping it would miss me, but Oh well!
10 years ago today: I went diving in a lake, and I was in counseling about my longest and most important relationship ending. I went out with Louise for almost 3 years and took her for granted. When she left I was devastated. It was all my fault.
I was working as a contractor for Space and Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) from 7 AM till 3:30 PM. I worked on Atomic Clocks and satellite timing receivers. Also most days I was teaching scuba from 4 till about 11 PM.
5 years ago today: I was living in hell, I was married. Before we got married, we got along great, we went to the beach, diving and we had everything in common. She changed abruptly at the reception. No more diving, no more beach, she hated it all! Any conflict, no matter how minor, she would lock herself in the bedroom or bathroom and stay there tilll I gave in. She never compromised any at all. The first time I didn’t give in she stayed locked up all night and brought up the subject of divorce the next day. The very absolute first time. I’m glad I’m divorced. My only regret, other than marrying her in the first place, is putting up with the BS for as long as I did.
1 year ago today: I was living in the same apartment I am in now, I was looking at property with a real estate agent who refused to show me property in the city I wanted. I don’t know if she’s still trying to sell real estate, but I’m still looking!
Yesterday:I worked, you can read about it on yesterdays post!
Today: I worked today too. At lunchtime I went for a long beach walk down Seven Mile Beach. I didn’t plan on it, it just sorta happened.
Tomorrow: I have to work for a couple hours in the morning, then hopefully do a dive.

5 snacks I enjoy: Chocolate chip cookies, green olives stuffed with jalepenos, Combos, Mandarin oranges in a can, cheese.

5 things I would do with $100,000,000: Have a big party, buy a beach house, give some money to my family, buy the radio station I work for and kick the competitions ass, Hire someone to run it while I go diving.

5 Locations I Would Like To Run Away To: I would stay here, I’m where I want to be. I’d check out the other islands perhaps.

5 Bad Habits I Have: Too passive, too aggressive, ignoring what my instincts tell me, following the same routine every day, trying to act like I think people expect me to.

Things I Like Doing: diving, swimming, going to the beach, kayaking, exploring new places, and sex (although I haven’t yet figured out how to get sex!)

5 Things I Would Never Wear: Those baggy surfer shorts (they look like a skirt!), cowboy hat, earring, anything I don’t like, I won’t wear!

5 TV Shows I Like: I don’t watch TV. Most of the shows people talk about I have never seen or heard of.

5 Movies I Like: The Incredibles, Galaxy Quest, Snatch, Shrek, Lord Of The Rings

5 Famous People I’d Like To Meet: Eileen Collins, James Michener, Jimmy Carter, Aria Giovanni, Neil Armstrong

5 People to Tag: The Berkeley Girl, Beck, Daisy Mae, Lita, AND Penelope

  1. That was interesting stuff, Mark, and I too like mandarin oranges from a tin! But you don’t like wearing cowboy hats?! Geeze, do you know many women have fantasies about men in cowboy hats! (In truth this could just be me ;o))Strange about your ex and I’ve heard a similar story about a new wife that changed like that suddenly – but don’t lose hope of meeting your soul mate, plenty of us women are exactly as we appear :o)

  2. Nice job on your answers! It’s nice to get to know you a bit more. I think we have the same view on our marriage experiences. Some people change immediately after the vows are said, it still amazes me! I hope you find another special someone with whom you have things in common with.

  3. I’ll think about this. It would be something to post when I’m not feeling particularly inspired, but I would have to do some research. What WAS I doing ten years ago? Well, I didn’t have a book published at that point, but I was writing. Too bad your marriage did not work, but don’t give up. You’ll find someone who truly does love you.
