One drink drunk

Last night I was settling in to do my very first meme because the Domesticator tagged me. Colin brought me a Smirnoff Raspberry Ice and I knew right away that he had ulterior motives. It's not what you may think. He was only trying to bribe me to let him have some computer time. I rarely have a drink these days and it was going down pretty easy. Light, refreshing and 7% alcohol. I agreed that he could have a half an hour and then I was going to get to it, however the drink knocked me out. I'm such a cheap lush. At least it cured my insomnia!

4 Jobs I've Had In My Life:
4 Scooping Free Ice Cream Samples at the grocery store. One for you, two for me.
4 Display Information person for Government Exibit.
4 Hand model/Actress for Bank Documentary promoting ATM's.
4 Greeter at large retail store. Yes my job was to say hello to every person that walked in the store. Oh the jobs you can get in your youth with an award winning smile!

4 Movies I Could Watch Over and Over:
4 Trois couleurs: Bleu
4 The Pillow Book (Naked Ewan McGregor. Need I say more)
4 Grace of My Heart
4 Swimming With Sharks

4 Websites I Visit Regularly:
As if all the blogs I have listed are not enough.
4 CTV News
4 Sweet Spot
4 Robeez
4 IMDb Movie & TV News

4 Favorite Foods:
4 Spicy Tuna Maki
4 Perogies soaked in butter and onions
4 Chocolate
4 Chinese, Mexican, Italian and Thai (Do you think we eat out too much?)

4 Places I Would Rather Be Right Now:
4 Eating popcorn at the movies.
4 Enjoying a dessert like coffee and a bitch session with a close friend.
4 Being mesmerized at an art gallery.
4 Reading some chic lit while, sipping a frosty beverage by the pool at a beach resort.

4 Most Wonderful Places I Have Been:
4 West Coast to East Coast all across Canada. It's a beautiful country with thirty million friendly people. (Okay I haven't met Bob in Edmonton or Michelle in Montreal but we are a polite and courteous bunch.)
4 Seattle in February with everything already in bloom.
4 Hawaii as an almost 16 year old girl on a special trip with her mom.
4 Quaint London, England. I need to visit more old cities.

4 Books I Could Read Over and Over:
There are too many books in the world to actually reread anything. I could list children's books that I have memorized but I read them for my girls not for me. Just to play along I'll list a random four that I've enjoyed:
4 High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
4 Syrup by Maxx Barry
4 Watermelon by Marian Keyes
4 Light on Snow by Anita Shreve

4 Songs I Could Listen To Over and Over:
Ugh, do you know how much I hate these things? I'm supposed to list four songs to represent my musical taste when there are more than 4,000,000 songs that could easily go on this list. Here are four that trigger memories for me:
4 "Heaven or Las Vegas" by Cocteau Twins
4 "Yellow Ledbetter" by Pearl Jam
4 "Gigantic" by The Pixies
4 "Groove Is In The Heart" by Deee-Lite

4 Reasons Why I Blog:
4 I started blogging on another site because it helped me stay in touch with family and friends that are far away. I soon realized how much I missed having a creative outlet.
4 It's mommy time.
4 It challenges my brain to form comprehensive thoughts. It helps me put things into perspective.
4 I hope to use this space as a way to remember little details about how much happiness my daughters bring to my life.

4 People To Tag:
Hope that you haven't already done this:
4 Mrs. Chicky
4 J's Mommy
4 Rhonda
4 Mega Mom

Whew, I think I need a drinky winky.

13 Singing the blues:

rhonda said...

Groove is in the Heaaaaaaaaaaaaraaaat.

Love that song.

Okies, I'm on it!

MrsFortune said...

Swimming with Sharks!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that movie. Kevin Spacey USED to make good flicks. And ditto what Rhonda said. Love that song! And I love the Pixies, too, Gigantic especially. And "Where is My Mind."

mama_tulip said...

A hand model? That's cool.

Mmmmm, I *love* Thai food. LOVE it.

I've always really wanted to do Canada, coast to coast. I've been out west and east, but never in the middle. ;)

"Light on Snow" was a great book.

I was *just* listening to a mix cd with Dee-Lite and the Pixies on it. Dang.

Mega Mom said...

See? I knew I was enjoying you Canadiennes (again, is that right?)

Have you all had the Toronto Branch BlogHer yet?

Pattie the Domesticator said...

Your food choices are perfect! Yummy!
I wish I could be a hand model. What a cool job. Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode...
You know, I considered putting Vancouver on my list of one of my favorite places to visit. Canada is quite beautiful.
Thanks for indulging that silly tag!

Mrs. Chicky said...

I thought I was the only one in the world who loved the movie "Grace of my Heart"! Cool. I might have to put that on my list.
I think I did something like this a while back, but nobody was reading my blog at the time so I'll try it again.

Chaotic Mom said...

Yeah on the drinky! My hubby bought some of that for me, too. I haven't tried any yet, but was thinking about having some last night in OJ. Do you think it would be any good?

I just found your blog through Mega Mom's. I am LOVING what I read, will have to read more... ;)

Sunshine Scribe said...

Hand model??? What fun!

Loved reading your list and especially your last reason for blogging. I should have included that in mine.

I like Mega Mom's suggestion on a Toronto BlogHer - there sure is enough of us it seems!

Her Bad Mother said...

I now have Dee-Lite on constant replay in my head. OK, and out. Baby's got a new diaper-change song!

chelle said...

lol I am a cheap drunk too!

IzzyMom said...

Swimming with Sharks is a fave of mine. Brutally funny and sad all at the same time :)

Signed,
One Drink Drunk

Kristen said...

This is one of my faves...

Hand model? Kewl. I know NONE of those movies (enlighten me, will you).

AND Groove is in the heart.... YES PLEASE. Can I get some CeCe Peniston? FINALLY....

something blue said...

... it has happened to me
Right in front of my face
And I just cannot hide it.

I love my cheese!
