Monday Meme! All About Me . . .

Lindsey tagged me for this fun little survey. I added a few more in hopes to learn more about you (and let you learn a little more about me, of course). Love these . . .

4 jobs I've had:

1. Mommy (my most recent endeavor)
2. Teacher (high school English--I know . . . I just thought EVERYONE liked English. )
3. Technology/Marketing Exec
4. Subway Employee (I am so good at cutting those subs the PERFECT way so that all the stuff fits)

4 movies watched over and over:

1. Sound of Music
2. Office Space
3. My Cousin Vinny
4. When Harry Met Sally
* I own all of these, but I will stop everything and watch then when they come on TV.

4 places I've lived:

1. Detroit, MI (north burbs)
2. Chicago, IL (west burbs)
3. Columbus, GA
4. Parkersburg, WV

4 shows I watch:

1. Grey's Anatomy
2. Ugly Betty
3. House
4. American Idol (I know . . . I went a little overboard on that post)
*Oh, I also have a strange addiction to House Hunters

4 places I've been:

1. Orlando/Clearwater/Tampa/Daytona (um, Daytona in the OFF season--it was awesome, I was one of the hottest chicks around, I was also the youngest by about 30 years. Still counts. )
2. Boston/Plymouth/Salem/Walden Lake!!! (for all those English teachers)
3. Washington, D.C.
4. Atlanta

4 people who e-mail me regularly:

1. Rebecca (my sis)
2. Amy
3. Terri
4. Kelly

4 favorite things to eat:

1. Chocolate (I'm really into dark--not the crazy icky, bitter dark--Hershey's Special Dark, but any will do)
2. Super fresh, plump, perfectly ripened fruit
3. Chicken Tetrazinni (the artery-clogging kind)
4. Swedish Fish (I have an ADDICTION)

4 places I'd rather be:

1. Closer to a city--Chicago would be awesome
2. Near the ocean
3. Wherever I would have a wonderful view of the mountains (I'm really into scenery)
4. Someplace new and exotic, exciting, filled with culture . . .

4 things I look forward to this year:

1. Watching little J learn and grow *sniff*
2. Taking a few vacations (yes, I said A FEW)
3. Spending time with family and friends
4. Getting and staying mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically healthy! Tall order, but why not!?!

4 clothing/accessory items you wouldn't be caught dead in:

1. Anything with a butterfly collar. I have pictures of myself as a little girl in a butterfly shirt with a butterfly color. It sends shivers up my spine . . . what was my mother thinking?
2. Leather pants. I always think of the Friends episode where Ross wore leather pants, started to sweat and couldn't get them off (he tried powder and lotion--a MESS).
3. A thong in public. I don't care where I am or how buff my body is (which it isn't), it ain't happening--ever.
4. Any tight t-shirt with words like the following: cutie, honey, baby girl/bad girl, kiss (or any variation), sexy . . . Besides, most of these words are on my son's outfits or my niece's (not sexy, of course--ewww!).

4 things that really annoy you:

1. Purposely rude and inconsiderate people.
2. Alarm clocks that refuse to shut off.
3. Incessant complaining (including my own!)
4. Clothing that looked good in the store but looks horrid at home.

4 hobbies you have/had:

1. Writing
2. Reading
3. Crocheting (tons and tons of awesome pot holders)
4. Running

4 things you would rather NOT be without (products/items):

1. My DVR!!! (which also means my TV). I'd love to say that I have such a busy and important life that I don't have time for TV, but I can't, so, I won't.
2. My Bare Minerals make-up--light and great coverage!
3. J's cradle swing--he can't nap without it and his white noise machine
4. The Magic Bullet--this thing can do anything! Sauces, shakes, drinks (Margaritas! . . . eventually, baby food
*How could I miss this??? MY COMPUTER W/ INTERNET access!!!

4 most important qualities you look for in a friend:

1. Honesty
2. A good listener
3. Loyalty
4. Compassion/true kindness

Instead of tagging . . . I leave it up to you as to whether you'd like to answer these yourself. Just be sure to let me know you're answering so I can be sure to stop by and learn more about you!

Funny video for those of you with a sick hubby. . . I found this on Lindsey's site--Hilarious!!!

I can't use that Bare Minerals make-up - it burns my face. I have friends that use it and it's so beautiful - I need to maybe try it again. And ... I LOVE AMERICAN IDOL - It's on tomorrow night - Woo Hoo.

I liked learning about you - thanks for coming by -see you soon. Kellan

Misty said...

Girl. You are fabulous.

As for the video. I almost peed. Yes. It was THAT funny, and SO my husband.

Huckdoll said...

You don't know how much I second that tight t-shirt thing. I despise those tees like nothing else! Great meme answers!

Swishy said...

Ooooh, that was a fun one to read! I said "me too" like 100 times!

girlymom said...

Bare Minerals- I have seen this, but I am always a bit leery about trying stuff from tv. I tried the proactiv, but gave up on it, too pricey...I'm way too cheap. This is a great meme- not the norm stuff.

Beth is wfg said...

I said, "HEY, me too!" a bunch of times too. lol. fun!

Lindsey said...

Oh Where do I begin?

This was SO good. I also LOVE The Sound of Music and When Harry Met Sally. I also watch House and LOVE House Hunters. We could watch TV together all day long!

As for the clothing, I totally agree about the T-shirts with the writing on them. I surprised my husband with one that said, "Brunettes do it better." I was just wearing it around the house to get a reaction. HE ALMOST DIED. He actually asked me, "You aren't going anywhere, are you?" It was SUPER funny. I like to do things for shock value every now and again.

Love Bare Minerals make up. It really is the best. Love TV (did I mention that already?). Love, love, love the Fisher Price Cradle Swing. Harper Jane couldn't sleep without it either.

This was fun. I enjoyed the ones you added.

Mrs. English Teacher, I get nervous with you reading my blog. I am only an elementary teacher....I feel limited in the English department:)

Kuddos to you on this post! Oh and sorry, I got a little long winded. I'm like that in person too! HA!

LaskiGal said...

Thanks for all the comments! kellan--OUCH about the BM. I have really sensitive skin and I'm doing well with it (when I actually wear make-up).

girlymom--I'm with you about EXPENSIVE (I practically had to take out a loan to keep Proactiv coming). I got BM at Sephora--if I ever started buying stuff from TV I'm afraid of what would happen.

Lindsey--don't ever worry about me grabbing a red pen--I'm definitely more about content! Oh, and long-winded . . . have you read my posts??? We could watch TV and TALK all day long!

Kathryn said...

Oooo. That was a really fun meme. It seems we have much in common. :)

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Are you living in my head? Because I would have answered most of those the same way. I think I kind of like that meme. I definitely liked your answers.

Angela said...

LOL! Love your answers..I am a big Grey's fan too.

just jamie said...

Best meme I've read so far. I feel inspired.

BTW, mind if I add you to my blogroll?

Pam said...

Wow! That was a lot of things! I love to learn more about the people who write the blogs I read (okay, I suddenly got self conscious about my comments and how you are sitting there with a red pen crossing out all my errors! YIKES!)

I love Grey's and House too!

MamaGeek said...

We should totally watch movies together, great taste! YOU were a subway artist? I'm impressed.

tulipmom said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed getting to know a little about you from this meme. It DOES sound like we have a lot in common!

How about those hideous maternity shirts with ridiculous sayings like "Contraception failure" (or something like that) or "Knocked up." A. Some of us went through Hell and Back to get to this state and B. Ya think??!!! :)

I've wondered about that Cradle Swing. And by "wondered" I mean tried to figure out a way to justify its purchase to D. given that we have a perfectly good swing sitting in our basement from when SB was a baby.

I'm looking forward to reading more posts.
