Tagging is fun.

Thanks to Molly, you get to learn a little more about me. Oh, happy Thursday!

4 things I was doing 10 years ago:

*Living in Denmark, going to school & working as an au pair.
*Learning (& loving) the art of entertaining, the Euro way.
*Riding my bike up a hill and down a hill, just to get home. That sucked.
*Discovering I actually love red bell peppers

4 Things on my to-do list for today:
*Drive my car
*Get an Illinois drivers license
*Get fingerprinted for DCFS
*Work from 2-11pm

4 Random Things I miss about California:
*Lancey-Hugs, Bailey-Jokes & Samuel-Questions
*Finding a parking spot on the street isn't a 45-minute long activity
*My peeps
*An easily accessible Trader Joe's

4 Jobs I've had:
*Barrista at a UCSB coffee bar
*Dish washer at a UCSB cafeteria (a group of friends all did it for the free meal card)
*Telemarketer (for about 2 days while in school at UCSB)
*Holiday-time cashier at Williams-Sonoma

4 Movies I've Watched More Than Once:

4 Places I want to visit:

4 TV Shows I recently started watching:
*Family Guy
*Gossip Girl
*30 Rock

4 Favorite Meals:
*Kraft Original "The Cheesiest" Mac-n-Cheese
*1 Cheese, 1 Chicken Enchilada Combination plate from La Adelita
*Pepperoni & Corn pizza
*Ruth's Chris Steakhouse Herb & Cheese-Stuffed Chicken (Their steak is great but this is Uh-MAZING)

4 Things you may not know about me:
*I firmly believe the 'ol adages that "Bacon makes everything better" and "Cheese makes a meal" (i.e. Cheese + Pasta = Mac & Cheese, Cheese + Bread = Grilled Cheese, etc)
*In addition to any school reading I may have (or be procrastinating on), I probably read 30+ books/novels/trash a year.
*I only look organized. When cleaning up for company I stash things in random places and then forget about them. This is bad when it's bills.
*I once knew every word, every song, every sound from the Little Mermaid movie (I recorded the entire movie onto an audio cassette tape that I would then listen to over and over. Summer of 89, baby.)

And since the fun must continue, I tag Denise, Brandi, Liz & Jan.
