4 x 9

Please excuse me, Painted Maypole, for I have been remiss in passing along this meme that you tagged me with a while ago. Better late than never, so here goes:

4 jobs I've had in my life:
  • McDonald's (Summer before sophomore year of high school. Shockingly, I gained plenty of zits--and weight--that summer.)
  • Cashier at Wegmans (Best grocery store ever, by the way. I worked there throughout high school and summers while home from college.)
  • Sports camp counselor at Cornell University. I did this gig for three consecutive summers starting the summer before my junior year of college.
  • Daycare employee.

4 movies I'd watch over and over:

  • Dirty Dancing ("Nobody puts Baby in a corner.")
  • Silence of the Lambs ("Oh wait...was she a great big fat person?")
  • Pulp Fiction ("All right, everybody be cool, this is a robbery!")
  • Steel Magnolias ("I'm fine! I can jog all the way to Texas and back, but my daughter can't! She never could! Oh God! I am so mad I don't know what to do! I wanna know why! I wanna know WHY Shelby's life is over! I wanna know how that baby will EVER know how wonderful his mother was! Will he EVER know what she went through for him! Oh GOD I wanna know WHY? WHY? Lord, I wish I could understand!"

4 places I've lived:

  • Geneva, NY
  • Charlotte, NC
  • Mt. Pleasant, SC
  • Melbourne, Australia (for 3 months while in college)

4 TV shows I watch: (only 4?)

  • Entourage
  • Dancing With the Stars
  • Survivor
  • America's Next Top Model

4 Places I've Been:

  • New Zealand (all of the North Island and half of the South Island)
  • Negril, Jamaica
  • Hobart, Tasmania
  • and uhhhh...San Diego, CA

4 websites I visit daily:

  • Yahoo
  • Perez Hilton
  • Blogger
  • Technorati

4 of my favorite foods: (only 4?)

  • lobster drenched in warm butter--actually mostly any seafood (scallops, shrimp)
  • pretty much anything chocolate, but if I had to pick one item, it'd be M&Ms (on top of chocolate ice cream under a chocolate brownie, that is...)
  • Mexican food
  • err...does wine count?

4 places I'd rather be right now:

  • In Tampa visiting Christy
  • In Little Rock visiting Sharon
  • In Colorado visiting Michelle
  • In Orlando visiting Andrea

4 bloggers I now tag for this:

Candace said...

The Mighty Meg-a-Weg! The fact that our town has a Wegmans was a major factor in our decision to move here. There was MUCH rejoicing when we found it down here!

thanks for playing along! no worries about taking a while... in fact, I am off now to do a meme I was tagged for several days ago... it scares me for some reason so I've been avoiding it!

We should have a Dirty Dancing party! I make little onesies for all my friends having babies that say "Nobody puts baby in the corner" I just wish I had thought of it when my own girl was a baby!

MadMad said...

Aw, man! I LOVED Dirty Dancing... those were the days, weren't they? And wine better count on the list of fave foods! Thanks for the tag!

Meg said...

Amen, Wegman's. I'm about ready to drive to New York from Maine just to see a Wegman's again.

I watched Steel Magnolias 3 times this past weekend alone. My favorite lines follow right after yours:
M'Lynn: No! No! No! It's not supposed to happen this way! I'm supposed to go first. I've always been ready to go first! I-I don't think I can take this! I-I don't think I can take this! I-I just wanna *hit* somebody 'til they feel as bad as I do! I just wanna *hit* something! I wanna *hit it hard*!
[continues sobbing]
Clairee: *Here*!
[Grabs Ouiser by the shoulder and positions her in front of M'Lynn]
Clairee: *Hit this*! Go ahead M'Lynn, *slap her*!
Ouiser Boudreaux: [Taken aback and confused] Are you crazy?
Clairee: *Hit her*!
Ouiser Boudreaux: *Are you high, Clairee*?
Ouiser Boudreaux: [In a frightened tone] Clairee, have you lost your mind?
Clairee: We'll sell t-shirts sayin' "I SLAPPED OUISER BOUDREAUX!" Hit her!

I love me some Royale with Cheese, too!

"Nobody puts baby in a corner!" That's my absolute favorite line in one of my most favorite movies.
