So I'm officially it now, I think

After being tagged 3 times, I'd better just go ahead and do the thing.

Four jobs you have had in your life:

Sandwich Artist at Subway--and I was an artist, because it said so on my shirt
Custodian @ BYU--because cleaning urinals at 4am makes you more righteous
Student Editor/Proofreader--because it's a good day when you get paid to point out other people's mistakes!
Travelling Sales Rep--because I thought it might be fun to have my soul (and will to live) drained slowly from my body for a coupla years

Four movies you could watch over and over:

BBC Pride & Prejudice--"And your parents are in good health?"
Ocean's Eleven--"Been practicing that speech?"
Horatio Hornblower--"[something something about setting one's manly jaw and doing one's duty For England]"
Cold Comfort Farm--There'll be no butter in hell!"

Four places you've lived:

Bitburg, Germany
London, England
Eagle River, Alaska
Provo, Utah

Four TV shows you love to watch:

House
Friends
Lost (when it isn't being stupid)
Pretentious British stuff like Masterpiece Theatre

Places you've been on vacation:

Smoky Mountains National Park
Paris
The Isle of Capri
Cedar City, UT

Four of your favorite foods:

Cheese, all kinds
Chocolate, all kinds
Pasta, all kinds
Thai food

Four places you'd rather be right now:

On a tropical beach, sipping pina coladas and not burning my pasty white skin off
On a Mediterranean cruise, sipping pina coladas and not burning my pasty white skin off
In Paris, wandering down by the Seine while eating a crepe filled with Nutella, banana, and coconut
In bed with my down comforter (Oh wait! Hah! I totally am!!!)

Four sites I visit daily:

My blog friends
IMDB
Google
Dollars2Pounds, because I am a freak who checks the conversion rate daily

Four Bloggers I am tagging:

Savvymom
Spitfire
Uncle Dave
CBH

These are my brothers and sisters, but only Savvymom updates her blog regularly, and she has a new baby right now. So this is probably a futile exercise.

Hi...I LOVE Ocean's 11. I'm lost though, in "Been practicing that speech"...what part in the movie are you applying that to?

Nemesis said... [reply]

Here you go, feather! I didn't get the quote exactly right.

Danny: Cause the house always wins. Play long enough, you never change the stakes. The house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big, then you take the house.

[pause]

Rusty: Been practicing this speech, haven't you?

Danny: Little bit. Did I rush it? Felt I rushed it.

I love "Cold Comfort Farm." So funny. "I saw something nasty in the woodshed."
"Yes, baby, but did it see you?"

And my mom has been bugging me lately to try and get Horatio Hornblower from the library. I thought she was joking.

I love that part in P&P. Only cuz he's so cute when Lizzy shows up at his huge mansion.

And Amen on the Friends. I can watch the same episodes over and over and still get a kick out of it. (Can't say that about many shows).

Huh--my word verification has 'madho' in it.

Ooh! I have bananas and Nutella right now!

And the thing about Horatio is that he's not much on memorable quotes, but he's all that on memorable LOOKS, if you know what I mean. And I think you do.

So what you're saying is, I have to do this? Are you bossing me? Savvydad laughed OUT LOUD at Cedar City as a vacation destination, since you are our world traveller. Good times.

Oh! How in the world could I claim I loved that movie and completely FORGOT that part?! YIKES! Thanks for the gentle reminder! :)

Nemesis said... [reply]

Oh April, your mom wasn't joking. She was telling you because she loves you and wants you to be happy! Be sure to start with "The Duel" because that's the first one.

Madho, I agree with every word you just said. I saw some episodes of Friends the other night and felt so very happy.

Daltongirl, I think you know what you must do! And you're right: Usually it's Captain Pellew saying memorable stuff while Horatio does the looks. ("I've got the brains, you've got the looks, let's make lots of money!")

Savvymom, I am SO bossing you. So get on it, woman!
