I Have An Excellent Idea! Let's Change the Subject!

Brandi tagged me with this meme a few weeks ago but it wasn't until I saw every other person in the blogiverse doing it that I finally got sucked in. I'm such a follower.

Four jobs I've Had:

Dairy Queen- I used to RULE that drive-thru window. No backed-up lines on my shift!

Amoco Gas Station Attendant- Best. High school job. Ever. My favorite memory from that time is playing guitar for some customers at 2 in the morning who were on their way home from the bar. That and all the quality time I got sitting on my behind.

Starbucks- Halsted and Webster, baby! Remind me to never live in Chicago's Lincoln Park. Oh wait! You don't have to! (I met Ollie D. there so it couldn't have been that bad though.)

Bakery Counter Girl- Have you noticed how most of my jobs involve sugar-laden food? It's amazing that I don't weigh three-hundred pounds.

Four movies I can watch over and over:

What About Bob?- Never stops being funny. Ever. Bill Murray at his finest. (Forget about "Lost in Translation!" We need Death Therapy, Bob!)
Trust- The first Hal Hartley movie I ever saw and still my sentimental favorite. Martin Donovan is swoon-worthy.
What's Eating Gilbert Grape?- Leo Dicaprio before the Titanic sank. "We're not going anywhere Gilbert!" Kills me very time.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind- Captivating. And I love Kate Winslet. I feel like watching it again right now.

That one was hard. I love lots of movies. Like the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. And Serenity. But stick to the four things! Right?

Four places I have lived:

Rockford, Illinois
Chicago, Illinois
Bartlett, Illinois
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

That's all I've got. Midwest! Represent!

Four TV shows I love:

1) Anything Joss Whedon-centric (Buffy/Angel/Firefly)
2)Veronica Mars!
3)America's Next Top Model/Project Runway (These two go hand in hand.)
4)Arrested Development/Curb Your Enthusiasm (I know I'm cheating but I love my tv.)

Four places I’ve vacationed

2)Naples, Florida
3)Madison, Wisconsin
4)My bed

Oh my god, I need to vacation more.

Four of my favorite dishes

Grilled chicken ceasar salad
Filet mignon
Rissoto with parmesan and mushrooms
Anything Jason cooks for me

Four sites I visit daily

Television Without Pity

Four places I would rather be right now

The Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Craps table.
With Jason in the hot tub in my backyard. (You know, the hot tub that doesn't exist yet?)
In New York City at a taping of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Getting a massage.

Five people I am tagging

I am only tagging Steph because she is the only person I know who won't be mad at me for doing so. And she'll do it. Well, she'd better do it because she hasn't posted on her blog in like eight years or something now.


  1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind .
    3)America's Next Top Model/Project Runway.
    4)Arrested Development.

  2. All right, although you already know most of these answers. Not posting this on my blog, though, sorry. :)

    Door County, WI - other than Ireland, my favorite.
    Fish Heads, Fish Heads, Roly-Poly Fish Heads:
    I'll eat just about anything, so... these are my favorite meals.
    Marinated Mushrooms with Goat Cheese, Toasted Sesame Seeds, and Raspberry Sauce; followed by fresh oysters on the half shell and a small salad; followed by fresh lobster; followed by dessert I was too high to remember after all that yumminess - Served at Vaughan's Anchor Inn, Co. Clare, Ireland.
    Best Meal Ever. Nothing even comes close. Except...
    One Cheeseburger, One Large Slice Pepperoni and Sausage Pizza, Two Pancakes, One Omelette, Two Cans Sierra Mist Soda, and a Cookie - Eaten the morning after I gave birth to Maddie.
    Places I'd Rather Be:
    I worked too hard to get into this house with my daughter and this man to ever wish to be anywhere else. I can honestly say there is no other place I'd rather be.
