just for fun, a 4 Things meme (semi-book-related)

April 23, 2011

I read my Free Will Astrology horoscope this morning and was reminded that “humor dissipates worry.” I’ll expand that to “amusing distractions help keep you sane.” Enter: fiddling around online thinking extremely shallow thoughts. A meme? perfect!

The 4 Things Meme (stolen from Care)

FOUR Jobs I Have Had in My Life
1.   Pet/kennel attendant at a veterinary hospital

1.  Little Women
2. The Lord of the Rings trilogy
3. The Secret Garden
4. Winnie The Pooh books (any)

Four Places I Have Lived

2.  Philomath, Oregon

4.  Really good garden tomatoes

Four of My Favorite Drinks

2.  Real fountain Coke (when it’s really good, it’s good)
3. Tea (of almost any kind)
4.  Peet’s coffee

Well, that was fun. I hope you learned some extremely inconsequential things about me.

Now, I’m off to plant cucumber starts and herb pots. It was supposed to rain today but it looks relatively calm right now, better grab this window of time! When the heck is this East Bay warm weather thing going to start? (I’m going to regret I said that when the 100+ temps start, but oh well…)

    i love these types of things and i may end up stealing it from you at some point.

    and your experience at job number 1 has served you well as of late. 🙂

    That was fun! I would never have pegged you for a fancy spa water drinker.

      By “spa water” I mean: cold tap water with ice, lemon, cucumber and orange. Please note: I almost never drink this, but I love it.

      Same for Coke — I think I have this like once a year.
