Stephanie over at Making Time For Me is fast becoming one of my favorite people. I love being recognized by other bloggers. Here’s a fun little sharing exercise – the Four Fact Survey Fun Tag, which I am happy to accept from Stephanie:
Four names people call me other than my real name:
Cordelia’s Mom, CookieCakes, Not CM – and a fourth one which cannot be printed on a public forum.
Four Jobs I’ve Had:
My very first job was part-time in high school and entailed filling bottles with vitamin tablets and then sealing the bottles with some weird kind of shrink wrap. Lord, I hated that stuff!
My second job was for the Federal Government. I would tell you what it was, but then I’d have to kill you – and yes, it carried a Top Secret clearance rating.
The worst job I ever had was working as a paralegal for a law firm involved in an environmental cleanup case. My “office” was a folding table in the middle of a roomful of document boxes – have you ever watched Office Space? I can so identify with Milton!
Four Movies I’ve Watched More Than Once:
Office Space (see above), Gone With the Wind (perfect if you’re sick in bed and want something really long), The Money Pit (probably not the best idea to watch while in the middle of your own home renovations), and pretty much every Disney movie made before 1995.
Four Books Or Authors I’d Recommend:
Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Bentley Little (any of these if you want to be scared witless), and my absolute favorite classic book is Jane Eyre. But I’ll read any kind of fiction – murder mystery, adventure, romantic, comedy. Books are one of the few things I’ll spend money on these days.
Four Places I’ve Lived:
Tonawanda, NY; Lancaster, NY; Blasdell, NY; Suitland, Maryland.
Four Places I’ve Visited:
Um, do wine tours count? Can I include Niagara Falls even though I live just 20 minutes away? How about all the sites around Washington, DC when I commuted in every day from Maryland?
Four Things I’d Rather Be Doing Right Now:
(i) Something other than answering questions; (ii) sleeping; (iii) winning the lottery; (iv) watching Office Space again – all in no particular order.
Four foods I don’t like:
There aren’t any foods I don’t like, but there are a lot of foods I can’t eat due to my ulcerative colitis. Let’s not go there.
Four of my favorite foods:
Four Shows I Watch:
Can’t answer this one – I never watch TV unless I’m sick in bed and don’t want to watch Gone With the Wind again.
Four Things I’m Looking Forward To This Year:
Playing with Puppy Cody, reading lots of books, writing awesome blog posts, and maybe an occasional blogger meet-and-greet.
Four Things I’m Always Saying:
I don’t know – I never listen to anything I say.
Well, that was fun! Now it’s someone else’s turn. Since this is not an “award,” I feel I can legitimately nominate bloggers who normally are awards-free, but whom I know to be fun-loving. I hereby tap the following bloggers, scream “You’re it!” – and quickly run away:
NOTE TO NOMINEES: There is absolutely no obligation to participate. Consider this my way of honoring you.
