Tag, you ARE IT!

JKove has tagged me. I haven’t heard of this yet, but now I have so here we go!

What was I doing 10 years ago?

Oh boy, let the teasing begin.  I was a band nerd.  Fall 1998 marks my sophomore year of high school.  I went to band camp, I played flute and piccolo.  It’s true.  🙂  I was also a varsity tennis player.  Cycling?  What’s that?  You mean people ride bikes on hiking trails?  No freaking way.  Look at that funny looking guy in neon spandex.  What a dork.  Boys?  Yes please.  Oh look, I just finished puberty and I suddenly have boobs.  Oh awesome, I got my braces off a year ago. Walking in the streets in stilettos. Oh wait, no no!! No!!! 😉

What are 5 non-work things on my to-do list today?

-Go to Sunflower Market to get some very delicious food.  Grocery shopping is one of my favorite
-Hang out with one of my best buddies
-Unpack and do laundry… I have been home for like 4 or 5 days since Breck.
-Play my guitar that misses me so much
-Take my bike to get it happy again
-convert every number I see into hexadecimal

Snacks I enjoy:
-Lattes and Cappuccinos
-Bread with peanut butter and cinnamon honey
-lots of fruit, like peaches, strawberries, and blueberries
-Dark chocolate with good stuff in it
-Goat butt flavored pig brains

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Man, I don’t even know. I can think of what I’d do if I didn’t have to work and that would be ride, travel, and get a car that won’t break down. haha. Baby steps. I think the more appropriate question is what I would do with 100,000 dollars. 🙂
– Give money to various causes and people I believe in – like donate a bunch of it to teachers
– Travel, travel, travel, oh, and travel so I can speak like 15 languages, lay on beaches, hike and ride in really really big mountains, drink really good coffee and wine
– Buy my friends and family everything they want and support them so they don’t have to work and can go on adventures with me
– Take lots of classes in stuff I’m interested in for no grade, just to learn about cool stuff
– Buy a sweet, fast car (sorry tough bastard, you can be a lawn ornament) and a bunch of cool places to drive it to
-Burn it, blow my nose in it, give it away on steps, and wear a ridiculous suit

Here you go! Here you go!  “Nice hooters”

Places I have lived:
-Albuquerque, NM (BURQUE! Da Querque)
-Boulder, CO
-my car for various weeks out of the summer ;D
-a van, down by the RIVER

Jobs I have had:
-tennis instructor
-hostess and food runner at Macaroni Grill
-textbook image designer
-student intern at Sandia Labs
-Research Asst and Teaching Asst at CU Boulder in Engineering
-Research Asst in Neurophysiology
-student intern at Xcel Energy
-deli girl at Wild Oats
-Solar engineer at Standard Renewable Energy
-spin instructor
-pimp daddy
-toilet paper pattern designer

I now tag Jenna Zander and Lynn Bush .


  • Hi Sonya,
    Just got back from Breck! Unlike you, we had the most gorgeous weather, 70’s and sunny all week. My first day I was pedaling up Wheeler trail and I saw a woman running down, she looked like you (of course, I’m blowing a lung trying to climb), I asked “Is your name Sonya?” She said no! bummer! I’ll send you my blog when I’m done with it.
    Sorry about the crash in SD. Nice photo of the backside 🙂

    I’m so glad you had a great time!!!! 🙂 I’m hoping to have a nice weekend of fall-ish riding this weekend up high. That’s so funny you thought you saw me. haha. Thanks for reading!

  • Eli says:

    I actually thought I saw Jeff today when I was riding a trail in Niwot. But he only vaguely looked like him, and wasn’t on his bike, so it was a dead give away 🙂

    Band nerd? Hey, just like Kerkove. He’ll have to refresh my memory, but I think he was my cymbal caddie when I was a senior. I could be completely and utterly wrong. Eh, I probably am.

    It’s still funny, though.

  • Sonya says:

    Yes… band. funny thing is that I live across from a high school and the marching band is out there till 9 PM every night practicing. Poor bastards. I thought about getting my flute, running out there and being the crazy lady trying to march with the band. 😀 hee hee

  • redemske says:

    It would be more entertaining to grab your flute and stand just off the edge of the field — waiting, pleading to be invited to come play, but at the same time making everybody really uncomfortable. Bringing a bottle of wine would be even more entertaining.
