Tagged by a meme!

June from Bye Bye Buy tagged me with a meme -- I'm a real blogger now! So here goes:

Jobs I've had:
1. Babysitter -- I was very popular and made a small fortune at this in high school. One of my families had a grand piano, so I would put the kids to bed as quickly as possible. One mother showed me where the wooden spoon was in case the kids got too rowdy. I didn't go back there.
2. Auctioneer's assistant -- My first full-time summer job, and an exciting one. We did estate auctions. I learned a lot about old glass and spoke with Helen Hayes on the telephone.
3. Child care worker -- My first grown up job, working in an institution for kids who had been removed from their homes by the courts. It was exhausting but very rewarding.
4. Secretary at a food brokerage -- We brokered food. I used a teletype machine. I could have made a fortune suing for sexual harassment, except we had never heard of sexual harassment at the time.

Places I've lived:
1. Lockport, NY, land of my birth
2. Garrison, NY
3. Boston, for college the first time
4. Salt Lake City, where I went as a Mormon and left as a heathen

Food I love:
I think you can see from this list that I am a major gourmet, major!
1. Cake
2. Ice cream
3. Baba ghanoush
4. Doritos -- Cool Ranch! Nothing else will do!

Websites I visit:
1. Chickarina
2. The Happiness Project
3. Reuters Health News
4. Cute Overload

Places I'd rather be:
1. At home -- this is true about 90% of the time.
2. Flying
3. In a pool or hot tub
4. Paris

Movies I love:
1. It's a Wonderful Life (I'm a sap.)
2. Ordinary People (Not a good thing to mention to someone you don't know.)
3. LA Story (I'm a sap.)
4. Chariots of Fire (I like to feel inspired, even though I can't run anymore.)

TV shows I watch:
1. Grey's Anatomy
2. How I Met Your Mother
3. Ugly Betty
4. Dirty Sexy Money (it's not my fault, I'm being compelled to watch it by Peter Krause!)

People I tag:
Don't hate me for this, and don't feel compelled either.
1. Chickarina
2. The Boomer Chronicles
3. Catch Her in the Wry
4. I don't even know anyone else to tag, how sad is that???

Whew, that was exhausting! But I feel that I've undergone some rite of passage.
