Four Things

Saturday, October 9th, 2010 at 6:07 pm

I haven’t encountered any new memes in my blog reading this week (admittedly, I haven’t read a lot, being busy with other things)–so I actually had to GOOGLE a meme to play today.

Introducing the “Four Things” meme (from Zeldman, whoever that is, via Quixtar, whatever that is.)

Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. Housekeeper at a hotel (The Sawgrass Marriott in Jacksonville, Florida)
  2. Health Aide for a residence hall
  3. Teacher of University lab classes
  4. Dietitian at a long term care facility

(Not very exciting. Sorry, folks!)

Four movies I can watch over and over:

  1. Pride and Prejudice (A&E version)
  2. My Fair Lady
  3. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
  4. You’ve Got Mail

Four places I’ve lived:

  1. Lincoln, NE (all my life)
  2. Jacksonville, FL (for a summer)
  3. Juamave, Taumalipas, Mexico (for a month)
  4. Columbus, NE (at least, I will be living there soon)

Four TV shows I love:

I don’t love TV shows. I don’t love TV. I think it’s of the devil. :-)

Four places I’ve vacationed:

  1. Branson, MO
  2. Yellowstone National Park
  3. Chicago, IL
  4. Wamma-Wampas (Grandma and Grandpa’s)

Four of my favorite dishes:

  1. The crystal bowl I got from my grandma
  2. The wooden platter a sibling bought for me at a past missions conference
  3. My Grandma’s china (all of it)
  4. The little glass jars that hold my homemade yogurt

(Bet that wasn’t what you expected to see under my “favorite dishes”, huh?)

Four sites I visit (almost) daily:

  1. Reading to Know
  2. Life on Sylvan Drive
  3. Lisa Notes
  4. Challies.com

(This one is actually pretty hard because I have hundreds of blogs in my reader–and I generally read everything I can as quickly as I can.)

Four places I would rather be right now:

  1. In bed, sleeping
  2. At my church’s missions conference (I should be grading papers–but am taking a brief break from grading to post something today.)
  3. Reading a book
  4. Pretty much anything except grading papers :-) (Or preparing lectures, for that matter)

Four bloggers I am tagging:

I don’t really do the tagging thing–but if you want to play, you’re welcome to. Furthermore, if you’re a reader and would like to tag ME in a meme–feel free to do so. I try to answer a meme every Saturday–and I’d much rather not have to search for one! Alternately, if you have some questions for me that you’re just DYING to have answered, you can just write your own little meme and e-mail it to me for me to fill out :-)

    Interesting way to get to know someone. :-) I think I did this one a couple of years ago, but it has been so long maybe most who saw it then wouldn’t remember it. I’ll keep it in mind.

    I think I agree with all of your “places I’d rather be,” and, yes, I was expecting food for the “dishes” category but enjoyed your take!

    This looks fun :) Next time I’m stuck for a post I may steal this :)

  3. I haven’t been able to do as much reading this past week so I think I’ll play your meme next week. =)

    Thanks so much; I’m very thankful for your blogging friendship! :)
