I want to play! Things about me..

I first read this over on Scully's blog and then a bunch of other blogs.  A great way to post somethings you may or may not find interesting, as well as get the writing bug in gear.  Here goes.

1. Four names that people call me other than my real name:
1. J or Aunty J
2. J Bird or The Bird
3. Pickles (Ryan's name for me.  Not sure where it came from)
4. JAM (my older brother has always called me this)

2. Four jobs I’ve had:

1. I consider all of the weekends of endless chores on the acreage growing up as my first job
2. Working in a pub in England (best job ever)
3. Working as a waiter at a Conference Centre (had to wear a tux, hated the job, lasted 3 weeks)
4. Paralegal

3. Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

1. Annie - absolute favorite (the original, not this new age Annie where Jamie Foxx is Daddy Warbucks - WTF?)
2. Mary Poppins
3. Dead Poet's Society
4. Rocky Horror Picture Show (never ever gets old)

...I like movies with singing!

4. Four books I’d recommend:
1. Lord of the Rings (favorite of all time)
2. Lonesome Dove
3. Anything by Bill Bryson (technically not a book, but I could not choose just one)
4. Into Thin Air

5. Four places I’ve lived:
1. Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, England
2. Manchester, England
3. Edmonton
4. St. Albert

6. Four places I’ve visited:

Only FOUR!? 

1. Australia
2. Greece
3. Ireland
4. Germany

7. Four things I prefer not to eat:

1. Tapioca Pudding (blech)
2. Soggy Cereal
3. Liver
4. Anything with Gluten (have no choice but to not eat this)

8. Four of my favorite foods:

1. Tomatoes
2. Cheese
3. Dark Chocolate
4. Big salads

9. Four TV shows I watch
1. Parenthood (guilty girly pleasure)
2. Sons of Anarchy
3. Walking Dead 
4. Game of Thrones

10. Four things I’m looking forward to this year: 

1. Half Ironman in July (eek)
2. Summer Camping
3. Going to Vegas next week (yahoo)
4. Having fun doing the things I love

11. Four things I’m always saying:

1. Basil and Kasper - get inside (mainly at 2:00am when they need to go outside and sniff stuff)
2. Can you turn the TV down?
3. It's hot in here 
4.  I love you

Feel free to copy and paste this! It's entertaining to write and read.

  1. I am beyond stoked that this silly meme seems to have gone viral in the DOC! it looks like everybody just needed a little motivation to write something. I'm glad I helped though I STILL can't remember where I got it from.
    I loved reading all your answers. I didn't know you did some time in Britain. WAY AWESOME!
