A Mella Meme

My first Meme courtesy of Teri:

Four job's I've had:
1.Grocery Clerk in smalltown USA. Bold blue blazer. Bright red bow tie. No sparkles allowed. I was fired for stealing a kiwi - which I did not do.

2. Girl Scout camp counselor. Muggy summer spent making crafts with yarn, glue sticks and tongue depressors. Swimming. Singing. Tents. The whole nine-yards. And yet my strongest memory from the entire summer is simply of eating cinnamon-chip muffins with my sister while we drove to the camp together early in the morning.

3. Coffee girl at a my favorite college haunt. I walked there before sunrise, crunching over ice and snow. Spilled coffee and milk and chocolate all over my clothes. Went home with a ziplock back of nickels, dimes, quarters and a few crumpled bills. Never much, but always more than I thought I deserved for the simple act of serving someone a good cup of coffee with a smile.

4. Administrative Specialist at
Eastern Nazarene College. My first official job and my introduction to the world of office swill, water cooler gossip and living for five o'clock (though I did get to work with a few pretty amazing people.)

Four movies I could watch over and over again:
(I forget movies almost as soon as the credits start rolling - and so I could probably watch most any movie over and over again...but, here are a few off the top of my head:)
1. When Harry Met Sally - it's my sit in bed with PMS (or 1st trimester, or just plain hormonal) sappy-girly-movie.

2. Any of the Christopher Guest Mockumentaries (Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, etc)
3. Everyone Says I Love You - this silly musical always makes me smile.
4. Grosse Pointe Blank - witty and well written script, catchy soundtrack, just plain fun.

Four places I've lived:
1. Smalltown, MA
2. Sighisoara
3. Quincy
4. Nashua

Four websites I visit daily:
1. Lopnet -family email/picture site
2. The blogosphere at large, including, but not limited to the links on the left.
3. Yahoo/Google
4. - in search of a home.

Four of my favorite foods:
1. Hummus with garden ripe tomatoes and dense slices of fresh bread
2. Vegetables
3. Bertucci's Chicken Diavolo pizza, no cheese, no extra oil. With rolls on the side. Yum.
4. Coffee (or anything that is coffee flavored)

Four places I'd rather be right now:
1. In Venice, sitting across from my husband in a Chinese food restaurant sharing a plate of fried pineapple.
2. Summer. Dusk. On the edge of a dock, legs dangling in the water. Mug of coffee. Notebook. Music.
3. The Polynesian Resort at Disney World with my sister and her husband and our kids.

4. In my own house.

Four bloggers I'm tagging:

DavidC (whenever he and his wife return from their fabulous adventures...)

Thanks for the fodder for procrastination Teri - much appreciated.

How is hummus? Isn't that chickpeas (garbanzo beans) smushed up as a spread? I hear it's great.

OH---and I always wanted to work in a cafe serving coffee----actually I would love to own a little mom & pop cafe. That would be great.

Great post!

I, too, love all things coffee. Ever tried Haagen Dazs Coffee ice cream? I highly recommend it. And what a great post! :-)

~deb You open a coffee shop, I will move and work there. Maybe I was born to serve coffee and write.

And yes, Hummus is chick peas with tahini, mashed into a creamy paste. I got hooked on it in college, it's not to everyone's taste, but I love it. It's great with Tabouli also (a 'salad' of wheatgerm and parsley, tomatoes and onions...tastes better than it sounds...)

a girl I think my love of coffee started with coffee ice cream - it's my dad's favorite, and he passed the love on to his kids. I haven't tried Haagen Daz though - I'm sure it's amazing. Man...I'm hungry now.

hehehehe.... I'm abit slow down here. Forgive me.
I'm just about to take off on this weeks adventures, but will take the questions with me, so I'll have no excuses for my return! :)

Hope that you had a lovely weekend, relaxing, reading - A GOOD BOOK!, and maybe trying the boss out in the snow again? ;)
