Must. Copy. Dooce.

Four jobs I’ve had

  1. Candy counter sales girl at the movie theater inside Lafayette Square Mall. I think I had this job for 6 weeks before beginning to suffer a nervous episode due to the fact that I had to add and make change without the assistance of a calculator. And while I continue to be just a skosh math-phobic, I certainly have relinquished the majority of my propensity for performance-pressure-induced nervous breakdowns.
  2. Sales person at Lane Giant (Lane Bryant.) This was a mostly great job with lots of great customers and colleagues. Only one crazy boss who sincerely asked if I was kissing her ass. “Not for $3.90 an hour I’m not.”
  3. Cashier at Walgreens. Even though my practice husband and I could not survive on the income, it was a fun job. GREAT colleagues and many good customers. (Save the ancient screaming crazy man who once shouted, “Get it through your head! These cigarettes are only $1.50! Why don’t you get that you stupid girl?” It was monumentally difficult not to come over the counter and explain, while choking him, that I was a degreed genius.)
  4. The one I’m leaving! Not to be a freelance writer or anything, just to get a new job within my current company.

Four movies I can watch over and over

  1. The Princess Bride
  2. Monty Python and The Holy Grail
  3. Amelie
  4. Back to the Future

It’s not *that* weird a list, is it?

Four places I have lived

  1. Born in Patuxent River, Maryland
  2. Learned to love bluegrass in Nashville, Tennessee
  3. Remained perpetually tan in Ewa Beach, Hawaii
  4. Learned a schload of stuff in West Lafayette, Indiana

Four TV shows I love

  1. Every single decorating show, ever. Especially “on the cheap” ones.
  2. Good Eats
  3. Miami Ink
  4. Good night nurse! I’m actually going to admit this one: What Not to Wear. GAH!

Four places I’ve vacationed

  1. Dublin, Ireland
  2. The Villages, Florida
  3. Maui, Hawaii
  4. The Middle of Nowhere, West ByGod Virginia

Four of my favorite dishes

  1. Mushroom lasagna
  2. Sopresatta sandwich
  3. Chicken tikka masala
  4. Christmas enchiladas

Four sites I visit daily

  1. Finslippy
  2. Zeldafitz
  3. Dooce
  4. My yahoo mail

The first three of which I detest. Normal women “hate” other women because they are slender and gorgeous. I hate women who are brilliant, funnier, and better writers than I.

Four places I would rather be right now

  1. Maui.
  2. Europe.
  3. South America.
  4. Algonquin, Illinois.

That's not a weird movie list at all. Also, I just started watching Good Eats. Great show!
