Four Answers

This was sent to me some time ago, but I had to sit on it for a bit*....
Here you go, Laurie! Better late than never????

Four jobs you have had in your life:

  1. BBQ restaurant counter girl

  2. Truck Driver
    (I kid you not...)

  3. Software Application Designer / Network Administrator
    (I did both simultaneously because I taught them)

  4. Preschool Teacher

Four movies you would watch over and over:

Here I feel like I should say something really classic, like "Dr. Zhivago" or at the very least, "Casablanca". And whereas there are lots and lots of diverse movies that I do truly love, in all honestly - these are the ones that I can, and do, watch repeatedly....
1. Pretty In Pink

2. La Bamba

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas

4. A Christmas Story

Four places you have lived:

Sad to say, this is the entire list. And honestly, Number 1, I moved away from before I was five years old. Number 3, I just lived part time, during college. Pretty short list, isn't it? Is that weird???
1. Bryn Mawr, PA

2. Kingsport, TN

3. Sewanee, TN

4. Atlanta, GA

Four TV shows you love to watch:

1. Gilmore Girls

2. Rescue Me (When are you coming back, Tommy Gavin???)

3. Grey's Anatomy

4. Beverly Hills 90210
(I know, I know - it's not on anymore. But it was one of the most fun shows ever to watch, and if it were still on the air, I am embarassed to admit that I'd have TiVo grabbing every episode....)

Four places you have been on vacation:

These are the 4 most recent....
1. Barcelona, Spain

2. Gatorland, Orlando, FL

3. Stockholm, Sweden

4. Baltimore, MD

Four websites I visit daily:

Gulp - only 4??? Ummm- OK....
1. Drudge Report - What can I say? I'm an addict....

2. The Digital LandPhil

3. Geeky Mom

4. Creative Little Daisy

Oh c'mon - let me at least plug Jess Hutch, too!

Four of my favorite foods:

1. Shrimp and Grits

2. Vietnamese ClayPot Chicken

3. Parmesan Pretzels (like you get at Mellow Mushroom)

4. Eggrolls


Four places I would rather be right now:


1. In a "nest" built out of comforters in my bed, surrounded by a stack of fabulous books I've been longing to read.

2. Billund, Denmark - with Schecky and Bubba

3. Prague, Czech Republic - and again, Schecky and Bubba are invited

4. Having a "movie Friday" - all by myself!


*I was all prepared to answer this the day she sent it to me. Then I realized that I had posted pictures of the Laurie-bear just the day before. Since I didn't want to reveal her birthday present in advance, I just squelched the "four questions". Then I realized that I had the date for her birthday lunch wrong. So I squelched it somemore. But we had a lovely birthday luncheon for Miss Laurie today, and now I can play along!

I got fired from that BBQ counter job, ya know. Stupid Mitzi. I totally forgot you lived in Bryn Mawr. I can't believe your parents lived here. I mean, it's so not them.
