Stephanie at About The Girl tagged me for a meme…..here goes:
Four jobs I’ve had:
-My first job was in an antique shop
-I trimmed hemispheres at a globe factory…you had to work your way up to putting on the equators but I didn’t last that long
-I traveled around the midwest looking for a drive-in movie theatre sign for the Henry Ford Museum
-I worked for the Chicago Architecture Foundation. The job had its ups and downs to say the least but the best part was that my office was in the Glessner House. It was in the lower level and huge, the windows were those two stone grates that are on the bottom right of the facade.
Four movies I could watch over and over:
hmmmm, I’m not the biggest movie watcher
-The Awful Truth. I love Cary Grant and Irene Dunne in this movie.
-Polar Express. I DO watch this movie over and over and over and I actually find it quite soothing. I never get tired of when they first pull into the north pole….
-Hannah and Her Sisters. Ernie and I watch this every year at Thanksgiving time. It’s become a holiday tradition for us. I still want to know who the band is that is playing when Woody Allen dates Dianne Wiest for the first time.
-Miracle on 34th Street (1947 version). I know, I know, that’s two holiday movies–actually three if you count Thanksgiving–but that’s just the kind of girl I am. I think Edmund Gwenn’s face is SO beautiful in this.
Four places I’ve lived:
I’m definitely a midwestern girl…
-good old Champaign-Urbana
Four TV shows I love to watch:
-Gilmore Girls. Tuesday at 7:00 is a sacred hour at our house when Mommy gets to watch her show. The other day Owen trying to suck up to me and he said, “Mommy, wouldn’t it be great if your Lorelei show were on all the time?”
-Anthony Bourdains’ No Reservations
-whatever reality show I’m hooked on: right now Top Chef, previously Project Runway, oh and Nashville Star starts tonight….hehehe….of course my favorite was the Rock Star ones (INXS and Supernova).
-nothing else specific—not that I don’t watch tv—there’s nothing better than a block of cooking and gardening shows, a bowl of popcorn and a glass of wine….
Four places you’ve been on vacation:
Oh, I’m really pretty poorly traveled…..
-Maine-one of my favorite places to be
-a road trip from Utah to Texas and back up old route 66 to Chicago
-Miami Beach—when we won a trip their courtesy the Mavericks
Four websites you visit daily:
-Go Fug Yourself
-New York Times
Four favorite foods:
-slow roasted/barbecued pork…or a perfect roast chicken….or chicken wings….I do have a soft spot for chicken wings….
-home grown tomatos (thank you Guy Clark)—preferably a Brandywine
Four places I’d like to visit
-London, the British Isles in general actually
-Greece….Ernie lived in Greece, on the island of Crete, when he was young and we’ve long talked about going together. For awhile the plan was that he’d take me for my 40th birthday but I found myself with a six month old baby when that happened…..
-Puerto Rico—particularly to see my dear friend Gisela
-old highways across this country. I love old roads and roadside architecture. It’s been too long since Ernie and I have just followed an old road looking for bits of the past. I’d really like to do that.
Four people I tag to do this list (if any of them will do it):
If you don’t have your own blog guys—then you can just put it in the comments section……
