The Flying Mum has tagged me for the 4 Things meme, and it couldn't have come at a better time. I was having a difficult time deciding what to post today and I had it narrowed down between the strange orange color of Benny's poo, or how I looked like a slobbering Saint Bernard with snot flying out of my nose during my run today. So, my dear readers (all 5 of you), I would run on over (ok, click on over) to The Flying Mum right now and give her your thanks.
4 Jobs I've Had
1- I was a Utility Clerk (fancy name for a bagger of groceries and a straightener of shelves) at a grocery store.
2- I was a Cashier at a large Midwest chain hardware store.
3- I was the lead female role in a very small independent movie when I was in my mid-twenties. It was hardly seen by anyone, but I did get paid for it, so I am counting it as a real job as it makes me seem cooler than I actually am. And all you dirties out there, it wasn't THAT kind of movie! Paris Hilton I am not.
4- I was in the banking industry for about 8 years. I started out as a Customer Service Rep. (teller), and made my way to the loan department where I became a loan processor, loan officer, and underwriter. After that I was the manager and supervisor of my branch. This was a very strange job for me because A) I hate math and numbers, B) banking does not interest me in the least, and C) I have Dyslexia, and no one ever knew it. Suckers!
4 Movies I Would Watch Over and Over
This is difficult for me to say because I am a BIG fan of movies. Big fan!
1- Love Actually. Soooo good. I have to watch it at least 3 or 4 times every Christmas season.
2- Swingers. The fact that they made that movie on what most movies productions spend on food service makes it even better.
3- Splendor in the Grass. Such an awesome classic that not many people have seen. Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty (I believe it was his first movie). Hello???
4- Lord of the Rings- any of them. I know, I am such a weird girl sometimes. Nerdy, might be the right word.
4 TV Shows I Like
1- The Office. This is the ONE show that I CAN NOT miss each week. Me loves it. The writers are amazing, the characters are hilarious, and the acting is fab. Me likey long time.
2- Grey's Anatomy. Used to not like it because the first show I saw was really sleazy. However, I am a sucker for medical shows and gave it another shot. It is entertaining, and I get my medical fix, so for now I give it a thumbs up.
I'm going back in time for the next two.
3- Friends is the ultimate show. I grew up with those Friends. When the last show aired I bawled like a baby. Worse actually.
4- ER. Ohhhh. Best medical show ever. I really miss the days with Dr. Greene and Dr. Carter. I still watch the show faithfully, but it is starting to loose its luster. Hopefully they will make another comeback. I mean, the show has been on the air for a million years, you're bound to have some dud seasons.
4 Places I've Gone on Vacation
3- Cancun, Mexico
Loved 'em all!
4 Foods I Love
Man, where do I begin?
1- Steak and Shrimp Fajitas. Mmmmm.
2- Salmon Steak with Soy Glaze at my favorite local restaurant. Yum in my tum!
3- White Chocolate Chip and Macadamia Nut Cookies. My own personal recipe, thank you.
4- Broasted Chicken. I don't know what it is about me and broasted chicken lately, but I think about it all the time. Very strange.
4 Web Sites I Visit Daily
Honestly, I don't go to too many websites on a daily basis. I guess I'll just do the 4 websites that I go to more than others. ??
3- Babycenter.com Actually, I don't even go there anymore since they changed it all around. Made me mad. I can't find anything anymore. Grrr.
4- Um. Um. I honestly can't think of any more. My blog, I guess?
4 Places I'd Rather Be
1- On a warm, sunny, tropical beach somewhere. It doesn't really matter where, I'm not picky.
2- A tiny little bistro in Paris.
3- Watching a fabulous production at the Barbican Theatre in London.
4- Asleep in my bed.
4 Bloggers I'm Tagging
Ok, I know just about everyone has done this, so once again, I am taking the easy way out. The first 4 people to comment can consider themselves tagged. Don't let that keep you from commenting, you don't HAVE to do it if ya don't want to. :)
