Fours Filler

A friend sent this to me, and I thought, "hey, something to put on my blog!" 'Cept I changed the answers to be mine, not hers. :)

So here goes:

FOUR JOBS YOU'VE HAD IN YOUR LIFE:
1. Geography Intern at National Geographic Society
2. Shoe store clerk
3. Pizza demonstrator at Kroger
4. Server/cashier at a concession stand on the beach

Those are just the fun ones. I've also been a sales clerk in a general/gift store, a dry cleaner, and Waldenbooks; a telemarketer for Olan Mills; a CSR for a long distance phone company; a proofreader, production manager, and traffic manager for a graphics design firm/ad agency; and operations manager for an occupational health services company, my current day job.

FOUR MOVIES YOU COULD WATCH OVER AND OVER:
1. Lord of the Rings
2. Pirates of the Caribbean
3. Serenity
4. Galaxy Quest

This isn't fair. Picking four is just too hard. What about Speed and The Mummy and The Mummy Returns and every movie with Orlando Bloom????

FOUR BOOKS YOU LOVE:
1. Hot Target by Suzanne Brockmann (really, all her books)
2. It Had to Be You by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (really, the whole Chicago Stars series)
3. Watchers by Dean Koontz
4. Another Fine Myth by Robert Aspirin

This was even harder than the movies. These are by no means all my favorites. They're just books that stick out in my mind as hitting me hard at the time that I read them.

FOUR CITIES YOU'VE LIVED IN:
1. South Ruislip, England
2. Agawam, MA
3. Delaware, OH
4. Silver Spring, MD

If, of course, by cities you mean "anywhere." I've never lived IN an actual city.

FOUR TV SHOWS YOU LOVE TO WATCH:
1. Firefly!!!!!!!
2. LOST
3. Alias
4. That 70s Show

Four too many, but it's been a long time since there have been four worth watching. If you insist on current shows rather than shows that have been off the air since, like, 2002, then substitute Prison Break for Firefly. Assuming Fox doesn't kill that, too.

FOUR PLACES YOU'VE BEEN ON VACATION:
1. The Caribbean (including Tulum, Mexico; Xunantunich, Belize; Nassau, the Bahamas)
2. Williamsburg, VA
3. Killington, VT
4. Misquamicut, RI

The last one was just about every summer of my life, growing up, and as many summers as I could manage since. It's where we scattered my mother's ashes in May 2003

There are at least half a dozen more, but those are top of my list.

FOUR OF YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE RESTAURANTS:
1. Skewers on P Street in Washington, DC
2. Red Lobster
3. Neato Burrito
4. Passage to India

I don't know if Skewers is even there anymore, but man, 13 years later and I can still taste those beef kabobs and rice.

FOUR OF YOUR FAVORITE FOODS:
1. Popcorn
2. Ice cream
3. Filet mignon
4. Neato Burrito's custom taco salad with their jalapeno feta salsa

Nothing too crazy there.
4. Agawam Junior High

And the nostalgia floodgates open...

FOUR THINGS YOU FIND YOURSELF SAYING A LOT:
1. Grrr. Argh. Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
2. Hair turban
3. Good morning, Alternatives, Natalie speaking
4. HARRY POTTER IS NOT A HORCRUX

Firefly reference, daughter number two's nightly demand, self-explanatory, and see previous post

FOUR PLACES YOU'D RATHER BE RIGHT NOW:
1. Sleeping in my bed
2. Sleeping on the couch
3. Sleeping on my office futon
4. Sleeping on my husband's chest

The only reason Jim's at the end is 'cause I can't sleep there long. He snores and my neck hurts.
