You don't know everything

EclectChick sent this to me in an e-mail. I decided to post my answers here. I'm sure you're all dying to know more about me. Snort! If the spirit moves you, send me your list!

You don’t know everything about me, do you? For instance, did you know....

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1) Sole employee for hours on end at a DQ-knockoff that got very little business – during high school.
2) Not a job, per se, but a participant in craft fairs – I sold some of my painted items – in the ‘90s.
3) Minder of the underused children’s literature/AV materials desk at the SCSU library during college.
4) Media resources lackey during college. I worked summers for a school district checking in library materials for elementary schools with other sleepy university students on summer break.

Five movies I have watched over and over:
1) A Room with a View
2) Persuasion
3) Pride & Prejudice (Colin Firth edition)
4) This is Spinal Tap/Waiting for Guffman (tie)
5) Office Space

Four places I have lived...
1) Minneapolis, Minn. (birthplace)
2) Shoreview, Minn.
3) Alnwick, Northumberland, England
4) Ingolstadt, Germany (technically the miniscule village of Niederfeld)

Four TV shows on regular network I love to watch:
1) Simpsons
2) My Name is Earl
3) West Wing
4) Law & Order CI (Sunday edition – whatever that is called. It’s not Law & Order traffic court, that I know.)

Four places I have been on vacation:
1) Kandersteg and surrounding area – Bernese Oberland in Switzerland
2) Poros, Greece
3) Maui
4) Cape Town, South Africa

Four web sites I visit daily:
Usually in this order, too.
2) FFH – to listen to Web radio
4) BBC

Four of my favorite foods:
1) Combination plate, Jerusalem’s in Minneapolis
2) Red licorice
3) Strawberries
4) Scrambled eggs – when my brother JoJo makes themM

Four of my favorite drinks:
1) Woodpecker cider
2) Weizen-style beer
3) Diet Dr. Pepper caffeine free
4) Tea/coffee with enough milk to make it dark tan (tie)

Four places I would rather be right now:
1) North of England enjoying the blooming daffodils and lambs prancing.
2) Sleeping on a lounge chair on the beach in Poros.
3) On a boat on the Thunersee/Brienzersee in Switzerland.
4) Enjoying a cup of coffee and watching people somewhere in Germany.
And, because it’s a sleepy kind of day outside today
5) Reading on my couch, at home, with Sophie on my lap.

Oooh, I like your answers. Commercial real estate? No wonder you're looking to switch jobs. Tired of having your soul sucked out of you?

I preferred Vince Vaughn in Dodgeball and Wedding Crashers. But I respect your opinion. You're David Brent AND Vince Vaughn? That's a mighty tall order!

Thanks Jambo. I find the EMT/lawyer juxtaposition very interesting.
