Four Things

Inspired by Andrea. Sorry 'bout the weird fonts. I have no idea what happened, and don't care enough to try to fix it.

And, to be technical, it's more like "4 x 8 Things."

I like little quizzes and things, but don't always like to take the time to answer 73 questions such as, "What's your favorite drink?", so this little "Four Things" quiz thingy is perfect. (Fun fact: "Thingy" is Noah's new favorite word. So if you hear him say, "Do you want to see my thingy?", he's not necessarily being exhibitionistic.) As always, though, I elaborate on almost every answer I give.

Four Things about Me
Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. insurance solicitor (I feel the need to explain this, since it's not what it sounds like. I didn't go door-to-door selling life insurance. I was the girl who answered the phone when you called your insurance agent and gave you a quote and worked up your policy and turned in your claims, etc.)
2. receptionist for a psychologist (or psychiatrist? I think he was a psychologist.)
3. customer service/cashier at the local Christian bookstore
4. customer service/general office go-to girl for CL&L at Baylor (raise your hand if you work or have worked at CL&L! Ah, yes, good to see you all in the audience.)
Four places I have lived: (have I lived 4 places?!?)
1. Sarasota, FL
2. Tyler, TX
3. (Oh, yes, I have) Whitehouse, TX
4. Waco, TX
TV shows I like to watch:
1. The Office
2. So You Think You Can Dance (final shows for the summer coming on tomorrow and Thursday!)
3. Mythbusters
4. The Unit
Four places I have been on vacation:
1. Marine City, MI
2. Siesta Key, FL
3. Colorado Springs, CO
4. San Antonio, TX
Four of my favorite foods:
1. Reese's
2. Papacita's chimichangas (which I haven't had in YEARS, so an On The Border chimi has to substitue, and does so pretty well)
3. Watermelon
4. Homemade cookies that have chocolate in them
Four places I would rather be right now:
1. Cherry Beach, laying out and reading
2. taking a nap
3. anywhere I could go outside and not encounter 102 degree heat and 300,000% humidity
4. other than that, I'm good
Four places I like to shop:
1. Target
2. Pier One (but it's been a while)
3. Old Navy
4. anywhere without children!

Four friends I think will respond:
It depends on who actually reads this...1. Angie
2. Maria (?)
3. Amanda
4. I would say Jennie, but she's awfully busy...I guess I'll leave 4 blank. (oh, wait...)
Now I don't want to give anything away, but some of this information might very well come up on your next test, so I hope you paid attention. Class dismissed!

The best thing about your house in Whitehouse was the loft bed. And I totally forgot you worked for Kelly too. How did I forget that?

In response to your comment on my blog, you're the original Amy in my book!

Glad to know that you enjoy The Office as well. I do think that last season was not nearly as good as the previous. Hopefully they focus their writing attention a little better this coming season. It did get better towards the end. They just had too many characters and story lines to worry about at the beginning of this season.

okay, so enough about that. you can check out my blog to find out "Cuatro Cosas Acerca de Mi" . -m

OK, I was originally going to leave you a comment about the dancing show. So glad to know others love it, too. I'm inordinately excited about tonight. I'm even taking off from work an hour early so that I can get all my stuff done and still have time to watch it. (I'm pulling for Sabra, I think. Love her.)

So that was my original thought. However, after reading Angie's comment, I have to second the thing about the loft bed. Although it's been so long, I had totally forgotten about it until I read her comment. Does it make me childish that I would still love to have one of those? If I could find someone to build me one, that is. My bedroom has vaulted ceilings--it would be perfect! And not at all juvenile.

Natalie, I think if you were a guy, we wouldn't even be asking if it were childish for you to have a loft bed. You'd have said something like, "Dude, I'm totally getting a loft bed like the one you had in middle school", and I'd say, "Dude, that's AWESOME!"

In fact, regardless of gender, if you want a loft bed, I say, "Dude, that's awesome!"
