Four Things. Here Lynne. This one's for you -

A) Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. Sales clerk at The Hobby Hut
2. Real Estate Agent with Wolstencroft Realty
3. Craft Chick at Billie's Country
4. Ministry Resources Coordinator at Arrow

B) Four movies I could watch over and over:
1. Chocolat with Johnny D as a river gypsy. Yeah. Hot.
2. Ever After with a spunky Drew Barrymore.
3. Pride and Prejudice. Both the old and new versions. Mr. Darcy...
4. Say Anything (John Cusak in a trench coat with a ghetto blaster lifted over his head playing In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel. Classic '80's. )

C) Places Lived
1. Surrey
2. Langley
3. Surrey
4. Langley
Like a yo yo ...

(For the record, I was born inVancouver, then lived in Burnaby til I was 5. Then lived in Coquitlam til I was 11, and then we moved to the farm.)

D) Four TV shows I watch:
1. The Office
2. E.R.

E) Four places I have been on vacation:
1. Cultus Lake
2. Palm Springs
3. Phoenix
4. Hawaii
The Europe trip was not a vacation. It was a field trip. Not a whit relaxing...

F) Little known facts:
1. I have 2 (slightly) webbed toes, like a duck. But I can't swim.
2. I took 3 years of piano lessons. The instructor advised my parents to stop wasting their money. I can play Mary Had A Little Lamb.
3. I successfully completed 3 years of guitar lessons and cannot strum a single chord.
4. I am unable to tie a multi-looped bow. Working in the craft industry, this was a definite liability.

G) Four of my favorite foods: not in order....
1. Chocolate. Chocolate bars. Chocolate cake. Chocolate brownies. Chocolate cheescake. Chocolate fudge. But not chocolate ice cream, chocolate milk or chocolate malts.
2. Cheesy garlic shrimp appetizer from The Keg.
3. Rockets.
4. California Rolls.

H) Four places I would rather be right now: (or in daytime)
1. In a tropical location with a book enjoying the sunshine.
2. Exploring Greece. Or Italy.
3. Anywhere my kids want to be assuming they're all in good moods and there is no life threatening element to the occasion.
4. In the arms of a man who adores me.

I) Four people who I think will post their answers on their blogs:
1. Andie
2. Lynne?
3. Shelaine :)
4. Drew?

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. The surprise phone call I got from a friend whom I hadn't heard from in forever.
2. Friends who drop by for tea on school nights to dream and plan and get real.
3. The sense of accomplishment I got today from putting all the year end receipts in the mail today.


Oh, wait.
One more thing.
Go to Rachel's blog and check out the YouTube video she has posted. Amazing.
