Things you may not have known about me

One of those e-mail thingies (from my pal Jay) that I've decided to do on the blog instead of forwarding.

A) Four jobs I have had in my life:

1- Waitress, Papa's BBQ, (now closed), Semolinas (also closed), Six Pence Pub (still there I think) and Olympia Cafe (also still there so I'm not a jinx if that's what you were thinking), all in Savannah, GA

2- Bookseller, B. Dalton/Barnes Noble. Savannah, GA

3- Production Coordinator of Campus Printing at Savannah College of Art and Design, which I also attended. As you already figured out, it was also in Savannah, GA. (Well I did live in there for 8 years, ya know)

4- Graphic Production Specialist, State Street Research/BlackRock in Boston, MA.

B) Four movies I would watch over and over:

1 - Shirley Valentine, one of my all time faves. Contains such classic one-liners as, "Boat is boat. Fuck is Fuck," and "Well tickle me tits til Friday!" My high school buddies and I used to quote these and other awesome lines to each other on a regular basis. And it's FINALLY available on DVD, woohoo!!!

2 - Ocean's 11 It's just fun!

3- Silverado. Great cast, great movie. Runner up in the western genre: Two Mules for Sister Sara

4- Pride & Prejudice, the BBC miniseries which is not technically a movie but I could still watch it over and over despite its being 6 hours long.

C) Four places I have lived:

1) Huntsville, AL
2) Toronto, ON
3) Savannah, GA
4) Boston, MA

D) Four TV shows I love to watch (part 1-currently airing shows):

1 - Gilmore Girls What can I say, I happen to like the fast talking and obscure pop-cultural references. So there.
2 - America's Next Top Model. Reality show runner up: Hell's Kitchen.
3 - House
4 - The Office US version.

Four TV shows I love to watch (part 2-off-air shows):

1 - MASH
2 - The Office BBC version.
3 - Six Feet Under
4 - Any Joss Whedon show: Buffy, Angel and Firefly

Four TV shows I love to watch (part 3-shows I miss because we no longer have cable):

1 - What Not to Wear Can I please have $5000 to go shopping in New York? PLEASE? I don't care if you have to trash my current wardrobe first. However, I refuse to buy any of those ugly pointy toe witch shoes. And I'm not cutting all my hair off either.
2 - The Daily Show I miss my daily dose of political snark. sigh!
3 - The Sci-Fi channel. Ok, I know it's not a show...but I really miss my cheesy sci-fi flicks!
4 - Also TLC, The Weather Channel, Comedy Central, The Food Network etc, etc...

E) Four places I have been on vacation:

1 - North Conway, NH (for our first anniversary. I'm hoping for something a bit more exotic for our upcoming 5th. Like say, somewhere we'd have to cross an ocean to get to.)
2 - Cozumel, Mexico (during a cruise with my folks)
3 - Disney World, Orlando, FL
4 - Des Moines, IA (With Theron's family. Among other things, we went to the state fair and I saw a motorcycle carved out of butter and a 2,ooolb hog named Pepperoni)

F) Web sites I visit daily:

(I don't get to web surf as much as I used to so I really only visit #1 on a daily basis but I do check 2-4 frequently)

1 - Salon
2 - Manda's blog (which is on hiatus until they get their internet connection hooked up)
3 - Netflix Thank goodness for Netflix which partially makes up for not having cable. It is with the power of Netflix that we came to find such awesome shows as Six Feet Under and Deadwood.
4 - Pandora

G) Four of my favorite foods:

1 - The original Schlotsky's, which sadly has no locations anywhere near Boston. Fast food runner up: Foot long coney dog with everything, ched'r peppers with ranch dipping sauce and cherry limeade from Sonic.
2 - pizza (cuz even when it's bad, it's still pretty good!)
3 - pho
4 - sushi (I was a late bloomer as a sushi lover...but now I LOVELOVELOVE it!)

H) Four places I would rather be right now:

1 - I've always wanted to go on one of those weekend-long spa vacations. You know, the kind wear you spend most of your time in a comfy robe or naked but for mud and seaweed while various people massage and exfoliate you while bringing you fresh fruit juices or champagne and delectable nibblies...what were we talking about?
2 - Swimming in a lagoon teeming with beautiful fish. And maybe some dolphins.
3 - Visiting my sis and meeting my new nephew in Seattle. Even if it would mean seeing that Travis guy too.
4 - At a black tie banquet accepting the Newbury Medal. Or the Nobel Peace Prize. For stuff I've yet to do and probably won't ever get to. Because I am a lazy git.

I) Four friends I think will respond:

1 - Mom
2 - Manda
3 - dunno..surprise me
4 - ditto

Ha! I'm first to respond! Except I'm not putting all that in here. And I was runner-up at my 10 yr HS reunion for person with most jobs since graduation.

Website visited - hey! Where's ours? ;) Actually, we've been slack on the picture posting.

I'd love for you all to come out to visit...better yet MOVE out here!! I know you can't right now but keep it upper most in your mind ;)
