all you want to know about me (or not; play along)

It's the Fab Four Meme! Which I originally thought was all about The Beatles and it confused me; clearly I need a bit of a break. Visit my superfriends who tagged me: mamamilton & katydidnot. That's a command.

4 jobs I have held ~
  1. Waitress at Kow Korner - I was going to community college at the time and a HS classmate commented to a friend after seeing me working the drive-thru, "Stephanie? Huh, I thought she was smart..." That's what wearing a cowboy hat & bolo tie will do for you, gang.
  2. Sales clerk at White Drug Store in Pullman - WSU athletes had accounts there; I met Drew Bledsoe and Jason Hanson! I'm sure they totally remember our encounters.
  3. Bookseller + Community Relations Coordinator at Barnes & Noble - "Will work for books" about sums up that job; I did meet Norton Juster (kind of a curmudgeon), Lawrence Block (pleasantly wacky), Whitney Otto (very casual & cool), and Caprial Pence (outrageously, sincerely nice).
  4. Teacher at a group home - The epitome of extreme good vs. deep despair; adjudicated youth attempting to earn GEDs while trying to overcome rotten parents, wicked addictions, and other bad influences. It was hard for all of us.

4 films I could watch again and again:

  1. When Harry Met Sally... ("I've been looking for a red suede pump!")
  2. Princess Bride ("Anybody want a peanut?")
  3. It's a Wonderful Life ("Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!" Oh, I'm going to start weeping...)
  4. Billy Elliot - great music, great dancing, cute boys, a little social commentary; it's all good

4 TV shows I watch:

  1. Survivor
  2. LOST
  3. The Soup (so I can just avoid the crap it makes fun of in the first place)
  4. Ellen

4 places I have lived (not including my current home):

  1. Oak Harbor, Washington
  2. Pullman, Washington
  3. Richland, Washington
  4. Hillsboro, Oregon

4 favorite foods:

  1. pepperoni & pineapple pizza
  2. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (shhh, don't tell Wild Oats)
  3. cheese
  4. crusty bread + butter

4 websites I visit everyday:

  1. my blog BFFs (links above)
  2. My Yahoo
  3. school web portal (I know, I am totally lame)
  4. IMDb - because I always have some trivial movie question burning in my brain

4 of my favorite colors:

  1. red
  2. plum
  3. navy blue
  4. sage green

4 places I'd like to be right now:

  1. a place where my children's arguing cannot be heard or even imagined
  2. Disneyland (I always love it and my kids don't argue much there because it's the happiest frickin' place on Earth!)
  3. the living room theater at Cinetopia - dinner & wine served to my lap, no one under 21, ottomans (ottomen?) & pillows for my feet while I watch something mindlessly entertaining
  4. my front yard in the setting sun is pretty inviting actually

4 names I like but wouldn't or couldn't use myself:

  1. Seth (saying it with our last name creates a lisp)
  2. Lucy
  3. Shane (old boyfriend, bummer)
  4. Pilar (it's stuck with me ever since I read James Dean had a girlfriend with that name)

I'm tagging my fellow Northwesterner Kirsten at Ready or Not (even though she's not ready, because she's having a weekend away) and Elaine at Blog In My Eye, who was until just recently a meme virgin (gasp!), and anyone else who wants to list stuff. Go forth and be fab.

I never would have pegged you for a Survivor fan; is really that good? Reality TV scares me...

I can't make complete sentences, see above. I meant: Is it really that good?

Maybe I should go back to bed and start over.
