Four Things (plus my bonus thoughts)

I'm listening to Christmas music right now. Oh, yes, I am! Jonathan doubts I will be able to hold out until December 1st to put up the tree. We shall see, we shall see....

Did you know that there was an earthquake in Oklahoma yesterday? Apparently CNN doesn't. But thankfully they covered the story about how Jessica Simpson tweeted about how many times the average person passes gas. So I don't feel totally uninformed and now neither should you! Sometimes I just want to shake Neil Postman's hand.

So, moving on to other completely-relevant-to-YOUR-world news....I'm going to do a little meme called Four Things that Bekahcubed did a week or so ago. By the way, I highly recommend bekahcubed's blog. If you've never checked it out, you can start with her meme.

Now, without further ado, here are my answers:

Four jobs I've had:

1. Sales clerk at school supply store
2. Intern at District Attorney's office
3. Legal Secretary
4. Mother

(Mother being the most fulfilling role, I still get thrills thinking about the internship at the DA's office which was my hands down FAVORITE legal job.)

Four movies I can watch over and over:

1. Anne of Green Gables (you can at least try to pretend to be shocked)
2. Anne of Avonlea
3. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
4. White Christmas

Four places I've lived:

1. Norman, Oklahoma (where I was born.) My parents were Sooners, yes.
2. Texas (where I grew up and where my family still lives, unfortunately.)
3. Moscow, Idaho (which I thought I'd loath but ended up absolutely adoring.)
4. Oregon (where I live now.)

Four TV shows I love:

1. Road to Avonlea
2. Frasier
3. Monk (!)
4. White Collar (our latest craze)

Four places I've vacationed:

1. Prince Edward Island, Canada
2. London, England
3. Washington DC
4. San Juan Islands, off the coast of WA state

Four of my favorite dishes:

(This one is hard to answer at the moment because it's all about food cravings. Bekahcubed listed actually DISHES but I'm thinking food here.)

NORMALLY I'd like:

1. This fabulous salad that we learned how to make after our trip to DC which involves blackened chicken, fresh peaches and carmalized onions. But at the present moment I can't stand the thought of it (and it was painful to type.)
2. CHICK FIL A meal number 1
3. BBQ chicken
4. Taco salad

Four sites I visit (almost) daily:

Like bekahcubed, this was hard to answer because my google reader has more listed but here are four special ladies I pay attention to:

2. Barbara H. at Stray Thoughts
4. Annette at Live, Learn, Love

Four places I would rather be right now:

I love Monk and Chick fil a. The complete series is out on DVD now and is on my Christmas wish list. :)

Annette W. said...

I've only been to Chick fil a twice. Yep. We now have one just 30 minutes from us though. We tend to only do fast food when traveling or when dr apts make it mandatory.

Oh yeah...Monk! Is Road to Avonlea on now? I have AoGG on my Christmas list.

Yeah...I love to visit you daily, too!

Annette W. said...

PS. Our library had a summer reading program where they got Chick fil a kids' we did that...I was impressed to get Richard Scarry inspired Busytown books as "toys."

Barbara H. said...

I did this some time back but may do it again since I don't know if anyone would remember it. :-)

I don't know if I knew you grew up in TX! I did, too. And my husband is from ID, but not Moscow.

I agree with all your movies! And I love Chick-Fil-A.

Thanks for the shout-out!

That salad (that you currently loathe but usually love) sounds fantastic. I'm excited that I get to top one of your lists of four (although I did note than L.M. Montgomery manages to top three!) I'm so glad you joined with this meme--and hope you start feeling better (or feeling more like eating, at least) soon.

Cassandra said...

Wow! You've been able to vacation at some great places!

Christmas music on October 15...that may be a record. :)

I would have guessed Christmas in Connecticut would have made your movie list...

Janet said...

3 out of 4 chicken dishes. You're so much healthier than I...

I'm completely jealous of your vacation spots.

As requested: You like Anne of Green Gables? Wow! I had no idea! ;-)

This was fun to read. It would take me all day to do though; I think the only one I could answer quickly would be movies. (Some book blogger.)

yay for the Christmas music!
