Four

Four Things
Because Ambrosia tagged me and although I never do these things, I have nothing else to blog about right now that couldn't get people potentially in trouble. All I'll say is that I started writing a blog post about what one of my professors did in class today, but I thought that publishing it on the internet could be damaging to him if the Powers that Be at BYU found out about it... but if you know me and want to know what happened, send me an email and I'll send you the story.


Four Jobs I've Had
1. editor/proofreader/actress/voice talent/web editor/receptionist at BYU Independent Study.

2. hot dog vendor (I never did invite you all over to see the movie of me being a hot dog vendor...)

3. office manager for a real estate company

4. courier for a barrister and solicitor


Four Movies I can watch over and over
1. Valentin

2. Sliding Doors

3. Sense and Sensibility

4. Notting Hill

(So what if I love romantic comedies---at least Valentin redeems me somewhat.)


Four Places I've Lived
1. Porcupine, Ontario

2. South Porcupine, Ontario

3. Arras, France

Four highly regarded and recommended TV shows that I've never watched a single minute of
1. Grey's Anatomy

2. The British version of The Office

3. Desperate Housewives

4. CSI---any version


Four Places I've Vacationed

1. North Carolina

2. Kenogamissi

4. the Maritime provinces


Four of my favorite dishes
1. Spaghetti all'Amatriciana

2. baklava (dessert is a dish, right?)

3. Grandpa Frank's lasagna (recipe forthcoming)

4. Thai Ruby's house special


Four sites I visit daily
1. www.singingcicada.blogspot.com (I'm watching for your comments.)

2. www.google.com (and www.images.google.com)

3. www.istockphoto.com (at least once a week to get their free download which is really bizarre and good this week, by the way)

4. other blogger sites


Four Places I'd Rather Be Right Now
1. Rome

2. San Diego with Switchback

3. In bed

4. ?


Four Bloggers I am tagging

I hate to do this, so I'll choose people who I don't expect to do anything:


1. DP, so that he can have his first blog post ever.

2. Coop so that he can come back from the dead-to-me.

3. Scoop so that there's actually a reason for me to check his blog.

4. Limon, for when he doesn't have anything else to write.

I'm so pleased to see that you like "Sliding Doors." I had begun to think the movie doesn't exist and that I imagined it for it seems that no one I talk to has ever seen it.

You know I've got to hear this story. ASAP.

YO, You wish you were here with me in the warm san diegan sun. How was the snow and chill of Maryland? You should have come here for the weekend, but you decided you were too good for san diego. Well, san diego never forgets!!!!! Please come visit me:(

MPB---Since, as you've noted, I've only ever watched subtitled movies with you, I thought that you were above Sliding Doors. I own it but El Senor stole it from me. I can trade his Valenin for my Sliding Doors and you can come over and watch it sometime.

Ambrosia---I'll email it to you tomorrow morning.

Switchback---It's spelled "caesar." But I still love you. And you know I love you if I'd rather be with you than where I am right now. I'll try to get out there ASAP.

Wait, you were an office manager for a real estate company too? I had all sorts of juicy posts about my job until I started reading about people getting fired. So then I stopped writing about it.

PS--I have a great professor story that I can't publish either. I just sent you an email because I really must know what happened. Really.

Did you know that baklava means "are you gay?" in Tagalog. The pronounciation is the same, anyway, the spelling might be different...

I wish you would have tagged me. No one ever tags me, except Lola, and hers are dumb. Wait. They're all dumb. But once in a while I wish I had something to do, and then I wish someone would tag me. But they never do.

I want Sliding Doors to be edited so I can watch it every day.
