Because Dyanne will be so sad and worried that I don't like her if I don't...
Four names people call me other than my real name:
Mom: at least 18 hundred thousand times each and every day, mostly thanks to Cuckoo
(Aunt) Crissy: Until I moved out and got married, I went by Crissy. Relatives still use that moniker.
Tiner: (pronounced Teener, as in Chris-teener) Bryan, and now the kids when they are trying to be funny
Maureen: A woman at church cannot for the life of her keep me and the real Maureen straight.
Four jobs I've had:
Waitress at Frisch's Big Boy
Cake decorator at Kroger (grocery store)
Auditor for True-Green Chemlawn (That sounds way more important than it was.)
5th grade teacher
Four movies I would/have watched more than once
National Lampoons (pick one) Vacation
Sound of Music
Four books I would recommend:
(These are the last four books I have read and liked. If you want recommendations of my favorite books, I wrote about them back in February. Go here.)
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
The Girl on the Mountain by Carol Ervin
Order of Seven by Beth Teliho
Four places I have lived:
Little Rock, Arkansas
Four places I have been:
In no particular order or preference, because only picking four is hard enough.
Acadia National Park, Maine
New Orleans, Louisiana
Hilton Head, South Carolina
Four places I would rather be right now:
Only because I've never been there
Four things I don't eat:
Four of my favorite foods:
This is next to impossible. I love food. Almost any food (Did you read the answers just above this?)
No joke. I can't come up with anything. I think, "Oh, chocolate, but I like cheesecake and snickerdoodles and Butterfingers, too!" I think, "ham and bean soup! but I really like potato soup and tortilla soup and tomato soup, too." Seriously, I can't narrow it down at all.
Four television shows I watch:
(When I get the chance)
19 Kids and Counting
Four things I'm looking forward to this year:
Phoenix getting his driver's license
Lizzi coming to visit
Our annual vacation with our friends
Catholic blogging conference next week!
Four things I'm always saying:
Brush your teeth!
Now, I'm supposed to tag four people who might want to join in the fun. I have no idea if these people will want to join in, but I want you to meet them. They are newer friends of mine, and I'm still in the getting to know them phase.
Theresa, at Ordinary Lovely
Stacey at Stacey's Mothering Moments
Rita at Open Window at the Catholic Review
Glen at Glen's Life (voted least likely to do this, seeing as how he only writes once or twice a month if we're lucky)
If you weren't named and would like to do this, by all means, give it a go. I'll enjoy reading what you have to say. I'd really like to see if you can come up with four favorite foods.
So, were you surprised by any of my answers?
Have a lovely day!
