Here it is, the four things meme

Via Anya here is the 4 things meme or at least my take on it, part of the reason I usually don't do these is I either can't think of 4 or can't limit the list to 4. LOL

4 Places I Have Lived (and actually liked more or less)
Florence Alabama (great little city)
Columbus Indiana (home town)
Lafayette Indiana (college well part of it at least)
Indianapolis Indiana (work)

4 Jobs I've Had in My Life
Waitress (at a Pizza Joint)
Bank Teller (way more times than I can remember)
House Cleaner (which is probably why I'm so terrible at it in my own home)
Human Resource Manager (the work would have been great if you just didn't have to deal with so many people. LOL Actually I usually loved the job just did far to many layoffs and firings for my soul.)

4 Favourite Movies
(Well I have so many, so I'm going with ones I own and can watch repeatedly.)
Anything Audrey Hepburn, especially Breakfast at Tiffany's
Ever After (Cinderella for real women)
You've Got Mail (CMC goes to the movies)
French Kiss (Kevin Kline, need I say more?)

4 Favourite TV Shows
Gilmore Girls (though I teach on Tuesday's this semester)
Lost (If purgatory = Hawaii, send me now please)
Grey's Anatomy
West Wing (Martin Sheen is my president! Hey a girl can wish can't she?)
(Yes I tend to trend more with the teens I study than with my age group on my TV viewing habits. Also did you notice that I like one hour formats with ensemble casts?)

4 Favourite CDs
(I have most everything in MP3 now so I don't actually listen to individual CD's but rather to artists or genres of music.
Dan Fogelberg (it's nice to have a soundtrack to your life and Fogelberg has certainly written mine.)
Mary-Chapin Carpenter (a woman who writes for and about women.)
Nanci Griffith (if she weren't a songwriter she would have had to have been a novelist as her songs tell such great stories.)
Anything folk
Anything Broadway (yes that's five but it's my site so deal. LOL)

4 Favourite Artists
Dale Chihuly
Diane Arbus
Wearable art makers
Glass bead makers

4 Places I Have Been on Vacation
(In a dairying family you don't vacation much so I'm pretty new at this concept.)
London UK, particularly Notting Hill
Durango Colorado (love the four-corners area in general)
Asheville North Carolina (went with friends to the Bluegrass Festival, great place and venue.)
Gatlinburg Tennessee (broke out one year and spent three days in a hot tub in the mountains in late May. Ahhh I should do that again soon.)
Big Island Hawaii (paradise)
(I have a thing for mountains, green mountains.)

4 Things I Love to Do know non-academic books, particularly historical fiction and sci-fi.
Play one of my Native American flutes (never get enough time for this, probably not possible to ever get enough time)
Do next to nothing (I have two speeds, full-ahead and complete stop.)
Spend time with friends. (Also something it is probably not possible to overdue.)

4 Favourite Books
Number one all-time favorite book = To Kill a Mockingbird. Having written such an incredible book I can understand why Harper Lee hasn't done another.
Number two all time favorite book = Jane Eyre (ok she's not the strongest female lead in the world but she comes dang close without being a "super hero."
My favorite author is Diana Gabaldon, if she write it I will probably read it. p.s. She's an academic who went "straight" in popular fiction.
Anything by Parke Godwin, I recommend Waiting for the Galactic Bus and The Snake Oil Wars along with the King Arthur series.

4 Websites I Visit Daily
Bloglines (I do all my daily reading in RSS)
