Four Little Things

Alright, I copied this idea from Wendy at Pound.

Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. Cashier. I worked in a corner store called the Cow Palace.
  2. Nurse. Yes, I was formally trained to empty bedpans and give shots in the bum.
  3. Lottery Clerk. When I first moved to Eastern Ontario a friend who also lived here took pity on me because I couldn't find a job. I thank her.
  4. Manager. The best part about working for a clothing retailer is the discount. Now that I'm not there I sooo miss the money I saved. Not surprising it was a plus size clothing store, Penningtons.

Four movies I can watch over and over:

  1. Officer & a Gentleman, I drive my husband crazy mouthing the dialogue.
  2. The Wizard of Oz, because there's no place like home.
  3. Flashdance, There's a little dancer dying to get out of all of us.
  4. Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, Another romance...

Four places I’ve lived:

  1. The middle of a triplex in Fort William, Ontario.
  2. The end of the same triplex in Fort William, Ontario.
  3. On the third floor of a low-income building, still in Fort William, Ontario.
  4. The third floor of a 9 story building in Eastern Ontario. No wonder why I like the number three.

Four TV shows I’ve loved:

  1. Veronica Mars
  2. High Incidence
  3. Third Watch
  4. Scooby Doo

Four places I’ve vacationed:

  1. Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
  2. Red Rock, Ontario.
  3. Niagara Falls, Ontario.
  4. St. Paul's, Minnesota.

Four of my favorite dishes:

  1. Fettuccini Alfredo
  2. Poutine with real curds not the cheep stuff
  3. Greek Chicken
  4. Barbequed Ribs

Four sites I visit daily:

  1. Rocketboom
  2. Large & Lovely
  3. Amazon
  4. Bug Me Not

Four places I would rather be right now:

  1. New Zealand.
  2. Collecting my million dollar prize money.
  3. Hot tub in the spa of my own mansion.
  4. Horseback riding with Viggo Mortensen

Letter Writing

This week on BIW we are working on a letter writing exercise. Our attempt to fight the demise of the art of letter writing. I have to admit, it's day two, letter two and I am struggling. I'm not a good conversationalist to begin with so to keep up a one sided dialogue... is even more of a challenge for me. Over the last eight years I've become so used to email and the immediate gratification that comes from it. I will persevere.
