Four things

I saw this survey on Kristin’s blog (Running with the Runnergirl) and thought it was the perfect thing for a quick blog post.

But first, a photo for fun (four palm trees?):

Four jobs that I have had

Nanny
Law office secretary
Retail clerk at an office supply store

Four movies that I have watched more than once

Shrek (and countless Disney and Pixar movies I watched with my kids when they were little!)

Four books I’d recommend
The Road (Cormac McCarthy)
Bird by Bird (Anne Lamott)
Circle of Quiet (Madeleine L’Engle)
The Poisonwood Bible (Barbara Kingsolver)

NOTE: These are four that came to mind quickly–I love many many many other books.  This is just the beginning.)

Four places I have been
Tahiti
Jamaica
British Columbia, Canada
Almost every state in the United States

Four places I’d rather be right now
The beach
Mt. Rainier
New York City
Tahiti

(Note:  Actually, I’d rather be in bed, asleep, right this moment!)

Four things I don’t eat
Raw tomatoes
Exotic bits of meat
Cucumbers
Anything coffee-flavored

Four of my favorite foods
Pizza
Homemade cookies
Tacos
Roasted cauliflower

Four TV shows I watch
The Middle
Real Housewives of Orange County (Beverly Hills, New York, etc.)
Survivor
The Amazing Race

Four things I am looking forward to
Wild (the movie) opening soon!
Christmas brunch
Sight-seeing with my mom
Sleeping in

Four things I am always saying
I am SO tired
Close the door!
Did anyone feed the dog? I have no idea.  (This is in answer to the perennial question:  “What’s for dinner.”)

Four things

One thought on “Four things

  1. Yvonne I. says:

    Oh that was so fun! And other than the Real Housewives, you and I watch the same shows – we should gab about each one afterwards. (Like I really want Bethany and Adam to win – I don’t like the attitudes and nastiness of the other teams) And ditto on the coffee flavored anything – including coffee. Since I’m not really doing my blog anymore, I should do this four things on facebook.
