I have been tagged by Shannon at Mom Wants a Diabetes Cure . So, here it goes.

Four jobs I've had in my life

1) chopping weeds in peanut and tobacco fields (yes, I'm from the south)
2) washing school buses
3) cashier at a grocery store (Winn Dixie)
4) medical surgical nurse at a hospital

Four movies I can watch over and over
1) The Wizard of Oz
2) Say Anything
3) Dirty Dancing
4) When Harry Met Sally

Four places I have lived
Well, call me boring, but I've always lived in North Carolina. I've lived in different areas but all of them are not more than 20 miles apart.

Four TV shows I love to watch
1) CSI ( The Las Vegas one only. I can't seem to get into the other ones.)
2) Gilmore Girls
3) Survivor ( Even though I missed the first episode last week. How was it?)
4) How I Met Your Mother

Four places I have been on vacation
1) Orlando, Fla. ( to Disney World and Silver Springs)
2) New Orleans, LA (Mardi Gras)
3) Williamsburg, VA ( honeymoon)
4) numerous trips to the mountains of NC and Virginia (my all time favorite vacation spot)

Four of my favorite foods
1) steak (preferably Ribeye)
2) mashed potatoes
3) Lasagna
4) BBQ'd pork chops

Four websites I visit daily
I don't visit any websites on a daily basis. I check my blog list about 3-4 times a week. Other than that, I really don't get on the computer except to check my email or to research something that interests me.

Four places I would rather be right now
1) somewhere warm ( with my family)
2) with my family (somewhere warm)
3) somewhere warm (with my family)
4) with my family (somewhere warm)

OK, now I tag Christy .

I have to add something to the TV shows. I absolutly love That 70s Show. It is by far one of the funniest shows on TV.

You went to Williamsburg for your honeymoon? That is so cute! I love Williamsburg. Never would have pegged it as a honeymoon spot, but that's really cool.

Allison, The trip was given to us by our preacher. Also, my husband is a history teacher, so it seemed fitting. I hate history, but I thouroughly enjoyed Williamsburg. We've actually gone back since our honeymoon.

Chopping weeds for a living is what stood out for me. That IS so Southern :)

Shannon, I chopped weeds one summer when I was 16. I did it to earn a few extra bucks.

Shannon said...

I had suspected that was a summer, teenage job.

I'm dying to go to Willimsburg. We go to Richmond every couple of years and now that the kids are getting older, I think it'll be fun to take them while we're down there.

You know, I love Say Anything too.

Favorite quote:

"Kick boxing. Sport of the future."

Don't know why. Maybe it's the earnestness with which it's delivered.

I believe there was talk a while back of John Cusack and who had dibs on him. I'm tossin' my hat into that arena. :-)
