My Four

Sorta chain-letterish, but looks fun anyway.

Elle, author and all-around butt-kicker extraordinaire, tagged me with a blog meme, and I didn’t have anything much planned for today, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. It looked kind of fun. Enjoy!

1. Four shows that you watch:

  1. NCIS (I watch the HECK out of some NCIS)
  2. CSI
  3. Psych
  4. The Big Bang Theory (If you don’t watch this and enjoy geeky humour…go freaking watch it. Seriously.)

2. Four things you are passionate about:

  1. Reading
  2. Writing
  3. My husband
  4. My extended family

3. Four phrases you say a lot:

  1. “Seriously?!” or alternately “Seriously.”
  2. “I keel you!!” (Think Jeff Dunham’s Achmed.)
  3. “Um…the…um…thing with the…you know…damnit.” (This one is always accompanied with hand gestures.)
  4. “Damnit!”

4. Four things you’ve learned from the past:

  1. Saying the right thing is not always as easy as it sounds.
  2. Deadlines make me work better.
  3. Ignorance is not a good excuse for hurting someone.
  4. Friendships can be mended if both parties only care to try.

5. Four places you would like to go: (What, like, again, or for the first time?)

  1. England (again, but I’d like to get to more southern parts)
  2. Ireland (again, but I’d like to go someplace besides Dublin)
  3. Japan
  4. Cairo, Egypt

6. Four things you did yesterday:

  1. Shopped.
  2. Visited with my family.
  3. Had a romantic evening and watched Grumpy Old Men with my husband.
  4. Wrote 400 words.

7. Four things you are looking forward to:

  1. Never ever having to work in retail again.
  2. Getting a book published (ok, it may never happen, but I’m still looking forward to it anyway!)
  3. My (our) new puppy!
  4. Having kids. And no that is not a hint about anything. (Stop laughing at me! I do know what I’ll be getting into, damnit!)

8. Four things you love about winter:

  1. It’s a good excuse for a bonfire/wood-stove.
  2. No sweat!
  3. Snow (when I happen to be in a place where snow occurs.)
  4. I can snuggle all I want with my hubby.

9. Four bloggers who should share their list of fours:

  1. Scarlett
  2. Lori
  3. Misa
  4. Geoffrey

    Just noticed that you listed me on this when someone redirected to my blog via the post. I’ll…get back to you on it. Some day. For once I’ve actually got a backlog of relevant posts, insofar as pop culture trivia and jokes about alcoholism as a writerly way of life are relevant.

      Heh, no worries. It’s just a bit of fun, and certainly no rush. File it away for a rainy day when you can’t think of/don’t have time to write a “real” post. 🙂
