Megan Tagged me

Maili, I know you tagged me too, but I apparently I can't run fast enough to get to home base and just keep getting tagged. I suck at playground games.

Four jobs you have had in your life:
1. Assistant to equestrienne in a circus
2. Legal Secretary
3. Retail manager
4. Politician (run away now before I start in on some weird speech)

Four movies you would watch over and over:
1. Room with a View (What ever happened to Julian Sands? Did Arachnophobia kill his leading man status?)
2. Pride and Prejudice (A&E, Colin Firth version)
3. Notorious (Cary Grant. Mmmmm.)
4. To Kill a Mockingbird (Gregory Peck as The Perfect Father. Mmmmm Hmmmmm.)

Four places you have lived:
1. In a Winnebago (circus)
2. In a semi-trailer (circus)
3. In a hay loft (circus)
4. In a circus (my current 5 bedroom suburban house)

Four TV shows you love to watch:
1. Project Runway (Carry On!)
2. Law & Order: Criminal Intent (Vincent D'Onofrio)
3. CSI (Guilty pleasure, sorry)
4. Cold Case Files on A&E w/Bill Kurtis. (Drives my husband crazy. He keeps commenting as he strolls through the room, "Do you think they'll catch him?" Hee.)

Four places you have been on vacation:
1. London
2. Williamsburg
3. The Grand Canyon
4. Zion Canyon, where we suffered through the worst service ever at the hands of a totally harrassed twelve year old waitress who got yelled at every time she went into the kitchen or forgot a glass of water at the neighboring table. We felt terrible for her, but the horror just wouldn't stop. My husband actually got up and started to help her serve at one point. A cranky old man at the next table threatened her with his cane and tried to walk out when she told him that the kitchen had run out of steak, but his family wouldn't help him get out of his chair.

(Husband and I realized that we had ordered the last two steaks and were terrified that cranky old man would beat us up, or the poor waitress, when they came to the table.) At the end of our meal the waitress asked if we wanted dessert, so we asked what they had. The poor thing sighed, and said, "Bumbleberry Pie." A tear started to flow down her cheek as she realized that she now had to start reciting: "According to Grandpa, bumbleberries are burple and binkel berries that grow on giggle bushes, so named because they giggle when the berries ripen and the bush begins to quake, and at the precise moment that they ripen, they giggle. If you were to eat a berry while it was giggling, you would spend the rest of your life giggling." It was the most excruciating experience ever.


Four websites you visit daily:
1. All the blogs listed on my sidebar
2. Amazon
3. Site for local newspaper
4. imdb

Four of your favorite foods:
1. Lobster
2. Butter
3. Chocolate
4. Coffee

Four places you would rather be right now:
1. In a tub of warm water
2. At the center of Colin Firth's heart. (Not a homewrecker nor a rabid stalker, but I would like to be there.)
3. Maui
4. On my Aunt's horse farm in 1983

Four friends you are tagging that you think will respond:
1. Oh, good grief. I've run out of names. Whoever reads this, please follow suit. It's fun.

Do you know I've never seen, or read, To Kill A Mockingbird?!? I really have to. Besides dishy Gregory Peck, there's the whole American classic thing.

Thanks for doing this! And being tagged so much just means you're popular.

I love the Zion Canyon story. Poor girl.

The Zion story was great. You need to fictionalize this, Suisan!

Suisan said...

Thank you Doug.

I really should write it up. I think I haven't because I'm concerned that it wouldn't "read" as being possible. "This writer. She doesn't know when to stop. Instead she layers it on and on and on."

But then agian, I should simply write it, eh?
