The Four Things Meme

Gadzooks, forsooth, zounds, and other assorted expressions of surprise! I have been tagged for a meme by Carrie whose timing couldn't have been better as I was rather wondering what I could post quickly so that I could spend time with Jamie on her last evening in Connecticut before she goes back to Florida.

Without further ado, I bring you The Four Things Meme - quick, easy, and relatively painless!

Four jobs I've had

1. Radio repair technician in the United States Air Force
2. Professional radio disc jockey
3. Tire and battery installer at Sears Automotive
4. 911 Emergency Dispatcher (Police, Fire, and EMS)

Four movies I can watch over and over

1. Somewhere in Time
2. For Love of the Game
3. Moulin Rouge
4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Four places I've lived

1. Tucson, Arizona
2. Stockton, California
3. Portsmouth, New Hampshire
4. Tampa, Florida

Four TV shows I love

1. Boston Legal
2. The Closer
3. reruns of Quantum Leap
4. Jeopardy!

Four places I've vacationed

1. Lake Tahoe
2. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
3. Williamsburg, Virginia
4. Las Vegas

Four of my favorite dishes

1. My "Death Eating a Cracker" coffee mug
2. My Cancun Mexican restaurant coffee mug that MizCyn bought me while I was in Stockton last
3. My Maxine coffee mug that says "It's my body, I'll have pie if I want to!"
4. My Jiminy Cricket coffee mug

Four sites I visit daily


Four places I would rather be right now

1. Cancun Mexican Restaurant in Stockton with my good buddy MizCyn!
2. At lottery headquarters cashing in a winning Powerball ticket
3. Nova Scotia watching the tides change at the Bay of Fundy
4. At a movie theater watching "Mama Mia!" and drooling over Colin Firth!

Four bloggers I am tagging

1. Jamie
2. Patti
3. Ralph
4.. Ivana


  1. Hmmmm...I'll have to give this some thought....

  2. LOL!!

    Let the "dishes" carry on!!! (go see Callie's take on the meme to see why I'm laughing) :D

    Happy almost-Friday!

  3. i went to lake tahoe once back in the dark ages, it was beautiful!!!

    smiles, bee

  4. The one I did a while ago was a little bit different. Just about half of it looks the same though. So I will copy my previous answers and add the new ones :o)
    Enjoy your day with Jamie and wish her a safe trip to FL for me, ok?

    enjoy your day with jamie. Hope y'all get some good mom-daughter lovin' going on...


  6. How fun Linda. I wish you were having lunch/dinner at Cancun too. I'd come join you and MizCyn. Have a great day. Big hug. :)

  7. It's a good job I didn't take you to see 'Mamma Mia! would have been drooling then!

  8. I did not know you were a radio DJ. How did that escape my attention??

    It must be a day for memes because...

    You've been royally tagged by Mimi Queen of Memes (aka I-hear-the-dungeon-is-really-hot-this-time-of-year)...

    Somebody Get Me Out Of This Corset: The Needs Meme

  9. Well I'm glad those were all in context! I thought 'dishes' meant menu choices!

  10. You'll have to give us a post about your D.J. days! You've been keeping stuff from us.
    I can't believe Jamie is already heading back to Florida. I bet she can't either...
    Tell her I said "bye and be safe..."

  11. I have tagged you for the "Needs" meme which was given to me by Queen Mimi, but I see the her majesty has already threatened you with imprisonment er invited you to participate.

  12. Hi all - just to let you know, Google, in their infinite wisdom, has locked my blog along with quite a few others as a possible "spam blog". Until it gets reviewed by a real live living and breathing human, I can't do any new posts at all.

    They claim it will take "less than two business days" to clear this up but according to the Google help boards, there are so many locked blogs that I can't imagine that they will get to them all anytime soon.

    So, until things get cleared up, this post will be my last for awhile. {{Insert teeth-gnashing here!}}

  13. Hi, I'm back!

    I didn't know you'd been a professional radio disc jockey! :0

  14. Linda,
    I'm sorry about your Bloubles (that's Blog troubles).

    I also had no idea you had been a DJ

    you are a renaissance woman, and the opposite of a late bloomer

  15. Patti is so funny.

    Glad to see you back!

    OMG, I LOVED Quantum Leap!!!

    I could so totally peg you as a radio DJ. I'd bet you were damn good at it too.

  17. The Monty Python movie I can watch over and over again is "Life Of Brian"

    Glad you got your blog back!


Thanks for visiting!
