I Mustache You Some Questions

Lory at Emerald City did this fun little meme and invited all to participate, so I thought I would. 


Four Names People Call Me Other Than My Real Name:
  1. Mom
  2. Hon
  3. Mommy --I am now out of nicknames and have to resort to...
  4. Little Toad.  This was my camp name when I was 12 or so, because one of the counselors was named Toad and we looked a lot alike.  Toad was an awesome counselor.  I was very happy to be Little Toad.
Four Jobs I’ve Had:
  1. Airplane hangar janitor (first real job! I swept airplane hangars!  It was a company that painted small planes and the areas had to be kept clean so as not to get dirt in the wet paint.)
  2. Snack bar at Camelot mini golf course
  3. Assistant at bakery -- I worked at two bakeries, one a general bread, cake, and donuts place and one a fancy wedding cake bakery.  I still don't eat donuts much.
  4. Librarian
Four movies I have watched more than once:
  1. The Secret of Roan Inish
  2. Star Wars, any of the proper trilogy (not to mention the Ewok Adventure)
  3. Veer-Zaara
  4. Ghostbusters

Four books I’d recommend:
  1.  The Great Divorce, by C. S. Lewis
  2. The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death, by Daniel Pinkwater
  3. Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy
  4. My Family and Other Animals, by Gerald Durrell

Four places I have lived:
  1. Bakersfield, CA
  2. Berkeley, CA
  3. Otterup, Fyn, Denmark
  4. Santa Maria, CA  (I've been in CA my whole life except for that one year)
Regensburg
Four places I have been:
  1. London
  2. New York City
  3. Regensburg, Germany
  4. Bakewell, UK
Four places I’d rather be right now:
  1. London
  2. Agra
  3. St. Petersburg
  4. Dublin
Four things I don’t eat:
  1. Corndogs.  They are treacherous.
  2. Horse sausage (yes, I've tried it)
  3. Cotton candy in a plastic bag
  4. Coke
Four of my favorite foods:
  1. Chocolate
  2. Samosas
  3. Pizza
  4. Tri-tip--Santa Maria-style BBQ
Four TV shows that I watch:
  1. Red Dwarf (we just finished watching every episode, again)
  2. MST3K
  3. Doctor Who
  4. Agent Carter
Four things I am looking forward to this year (2015):
Red Dwarf
  1. Rain (I hope!) 
  2. Working on my quilt project(s)
  3. DWJ March
  4. Am considering a summer road trip to the land of tri-tip and beaches...
Four things I’m always saying:
  1.  Have you seen the book I was reading?
  2. What are you working on?  (to a kid doing schoolwork)
  3. I brought you a present! (this is usually a library book, not a present at all)
  4. Have you brushed your teeth? 
Four people I tag:
  1. I don't like tagging people.  I admit that it is silly to participate in these things and then refuse to tag people but that is how I roll.  So there.

Thanks for participating! It's fun to learn these odd details about other bloggers. I know what you mean about tagging though, that's why I don't usually do things like this.

Maybe the tag is - you read this; you like this; then do it!

Because I've read this; I like it; and now I'm going to sit down and do it :-)

It was lovely learning all these extra things about you!

Jean said...

Yes, that is what I mean! Thanks for understanding me and my aversion to tagging. :)

Yay for being excited about DWJ March! I'm writing up the launch post right now, scheduled to post on the 19th. :)
