Things About Me You Didn't Know You Wanted to Know

GP just sent a version of this out in email form, and since I've made a commitment not to send emails out that require action on the receiving end, I thought I'd take part in it here. You just might learn something interesting about me!

So, here goes:

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1) Ticket Office of the Santa Barbara Civic Light Opera--Musical Theatre!
2) Tasting Room of Santa Barbara Winery (Oh, trouble!)
3) Reception desk at Dr. Marvin Rye's Optometry Office
4) Concierge & planning fabulous weddings & events at a 4 Star Resort in Santa Barbara (Alas, due to confidentiality I can't tell you anything about them here...but OH! the stories, people!)

Four movies I would watch over and over:
1) Shakespeare in Love
2) Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken (Say What?!)
3) Finding Nemo
4) Princess Bride

Four movies I'm FORCED to watch over & over:
1) Bad Boys
2) Anything w/ Jean Claude Van Damme
3) Terminator - the Series
4)Starship Troopers

Four places I have lived:
1) Santa Barbara/Goleta/Isla Vista, CA
2) Sacramento, CA
3)Warwick, NY
4) Westlake Village, CA

Four TV Shows that I watch:
1) Grey's Anatomy
2) Deadliest Catch
3) The Office
4) October Road (Have I not mentioned that before?)

Four places I have been:
1) Mazatlan, Mexico
2) Los Roques & Isla Margarita, Venezuela
3) St. Louis, MO
4) New York City

Four of my favorite foods:
1) Pizza
2) Steak (esp. in Sandwich form or wrapped in bacon)
3) Sour Cream (does that count as a food?)
4) Bean, Rice & Cheese Burrito's (esp. from The Cantina in Isla Vista)
*Sausage Strata (see Friday's Recipe this week) is not on this list simply because I only eat it once (or twice if I'm lucky) a year.

Four places I would rather be right now (w/my husband & kids, of course)
1) NYC at a Broadway show or a Yankee Game
2) Los Roques, Venezuela
3) Somewhere where it's snowing & there's a wood burning fire in the fireplace
4) Visiting my sister, brother-in-law, nephew & niece/nephew to be in VA (& not just because I want to eat at Guapo's or Five Guys-although that's part of it)

Five of my Favorite Beverages (3-5 are all tied for 3rd place)
1) Iced Tea, NO sugar please
2) Wine (esp. of the HEAVY Red variety)
3) Classic Mojito (or w/ Coconut Rum- which I discovered last night)
4) Margarita (on the rocks, no salt)
5) Cosmopolitan (re-discovered last night)

Four of my Favorite Charities:
1) St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
2) March of Dimes

Some add'l Random Facts:
1) I'm afraid of Banks-this is a new fear that's develped in the last few years. It totally freaks me out to have to go inside, so the ATM has become my new BFF.
2) I want to own a cow one day. Not a milk cow. In fact, I really don't want to have to milk a cow EVER, so some kind of cow that doesn't produce milk would be best. And I want it to look like this. Or this. But NOT like this.
3) I'm a fan of the Indianapolis Colts simply because I HEART Peyton Manning. He's funny.
4) I will join DJ in being a Dodgers fan this season simply because of Joe Torre. I will forever remain a Yankees fan the mostest though. Amen.
