9:05 this morning--what were you doing?

So I am sitting there on the rowing machine just now, going nowhere and thinking deep thoughts, and I try out a memory excercise on myself because Ani Difranco's "Little Plastic Castles" is on the radio which has a line about 'goldfish have no memory...and the little plastic castle is a surprise everytime' (see video below)
SO I ask myself, for example, Gary, what were you doing at 9 this morning??? WELL I was eating a little bit of cake and a double espresso in the cup pictured here with, as it turns out, Missus Tastycake. Then I thought YOU people should tell me, what were you doing at 9, except some people were getting to work,
so let's say 9:05.

OK, so what were you doing at 9:05 this morning??? Go to comments.
Bonus--what were doing at 11:10 yesterday morning? (I was making some jars with fish--took me awhile to remember)

9:05 this morning, I was:

- drinking coffee
- listening to the radio
- going through error logs on a computer application I support.

Fun stuff! The coffee was very good, though.

At 9:05 this morning, I was trying very hard to learn bellydance moves on my bellydancing workout dvd and failing miserably. But I did sweat some, so that's good.

Hmm, yesterday at 11:10 I was in my kitchen. Moving between preparing a lunch of ratatouille sauce over noodles for the kids and making a menu plan and grocery list at the computer.

I suspect today sounds more exciting.

At 9:05 this morning I was answering emails.

At 11:10 yesterday I was watching Ace of Cakes on Food Network. They had a President's Day marathon.

Damn exciting huh?

Wow - that was hard. At 9:05 this morning I was alternating between getting ready for the day (you know - fluff and puff), eating breakfast, answering an e-mail, etc. So - I don't have an 'exact' moment of 9:05, but it was one of those things.

ll:10 yesterday morning? I was cooking a pork roast, scalloped potatoes and sausage and peppers. Yup - all those things at once! Getting it all done, so we can eat this week.

I may be retired, but I still have to work 3 days a week! ;)

OH! I forgot to tell you...I went out late this morning to pick up and few things and guess what I bought for YOU???

HAHA! you'll have to wait till your birthday! When exactly is your birthday, BTW???

At 9:05 this morning, I was working, wondering where the coffee guys were. We have two people assigned to bring us coffee and a snack selection so no one has to go out for it.

At 11:10 yesterday I think I was sleeping...I had a bout of bronchitis and spent most of my three-day weekend in bed. Rest and fluids are supposedly the best antidotes.

9:05? Sipping coffee, logging into my work and personal email.

11:10 yesterday? At a meeting for a project.

Well- I was working- unloading a bisque kiln and getting ready to glaze pots!
Yesterday- waxing pots-
dull but true!

I was just sitting down to work at my day job office, drinking coffee out of a thermal cup that I wished was my new heart mug made by Gary Rith.

Don't hate me -- I was still in bed asleep at 9:05 (didn't get to bed till 2 the night before), and at 11:10 yesterday, I was ... ummm ... yep, still asleep.

Oy vey.

I got to work at 9:00 exactly this morning, so at 9:05 I was either unpacking or walking to the kitchen for water.

11:10 yesterday morning I was in B's kitchen watching him wrap asparagus in bacon.

Hilary said...

You're kidding, right? I'm lucky if I can remember what I was doing five minutes ago. :)

Lynda said...

9:05am this morning... just looking at the clock and wondering if my kiddo was up yet!

And 11:10am yesterday...taking a stray dog to the no-kill shelter. A cute little terrier that looked very much like a whippet.

I can't believe I remembered.

J said...

oops, I missed the bonus round:

11:05 the previous morning, I was microwaving my pepperoni pizza Hot Pocket in the break room. Yeah. Its all gourmet, baby.

At 6:05am pacific time - 9:05am eastern time - I was making breakfast for myself and the man. Grits and toast.

At 8:10am yesterday - um... I could guess. I think I have ADD, so I'm all over the place. I was either unloading the dishwasher, reading blogs, watching Roseanne on TV, or vacuuming.
