Four. A meme. 'Cause it's all I got.

Four jobs I’ve had
1. Cashier Official taste tester for Mrs. Field's Cookies.
2. Server. And I’d rather clean toilets for the rest of my life than wait tables.
3. Supervisor. Lousy pay. Lousy hours. Lousy.
4. Administrative assistant. Great for blogging. Because, you know, lots and lots of downtime.

Four jobs I wish I had
1. Baker
2. Photographer
3. Bad ass romance writer
4. Robert Pattinson's housekeeper

Four movies I can watch over and over
Aside from the obvious?
1. The Family Stone
2. Beauty and the Beast
3. Sex and the City
4. Love Actually

(The "obvious" being Twilight and New Moon, naturally.) (And, really, this is a horrible question. I love movies. Do you know how difficult it is to stop at four?!)

Four books I can read over and over
1. Paradise by Judith McNaught (plus every other book she’s written)
2. Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
3. Honest Illusions by Nora Roberts
4. If Tomorrow Comes by Sidney Sheldon

Four places I’ve lived
1. Orange County, California
2. Orange County, California
3. Monterey, California
4. Orange County, California


Four TV shows I love
We all know I have a serious problem with TV. Meaning I watch way too much. These are the four I can't get enough of lately.
1. The Real Housewives
2. The Bachelor
3. Family Guy
4. The Office

Four TV shows I wish were still on
1. Sex and the City
2. Friends
3. Seinfeld
4. Lipstick Jungle

Four places I’ve been on vacation
1. Yellowstone National Park
2. Disney World
3. New York City
4. Hershey, PA (for one reason only: chocolate)

I’ve never been out of the U.S. Unless you count Tijuana. Nobody counts Tijuana.

Four of my favorite meals
1. Thai chicken pasta from Cheesecake Factory
2. Mini corn dogs and chili cheese fries from Wienerschnitzel
3. Honey barbecue chicken strips and a side salad from WingNuts
4. Gorgonzola-stuffed dates wrapped in applewood-smoked bacon from 3Thirty3 (it could be a meal.)

Four places I’d rather be
1. Having a cookie with Stephenie Meyer while convincing her to finish Midnight Sun. (She seems like she’d have plenty of cookies readily available.)
2. Convincing Judith McNaught to write something, anything, because it’s been much too long.
3. Making butter cream frosting with Alton Brown. 'Cause I've tried, like, eight times and I can't get it right. It's FROSTING, for crying out loud!
4. Becoming Scott Kelby's BFF.

The end. And I'm sorry. Real post coming soon. But don't hold your breath.


  1. Hey, I want to be Scott Kelby's BFF, too! Or, his pesky neighbor that keeps asking him photography questions!Don't be sorry, your memes are fun to read!

  2. I'm with Gayle....when you hang out with you new BFF, let me know so I can send you a list of questions to ask him. :)

  3. Oh, I'll definitely take a list of questions. I think I'd be too star-struck to remember any of them anyway. That is, until we're BFFs. ;)

  4. weird, you and i have pretty much the same ambition except i'll take being rpattz's concubine. it's an asian thing.

  5. I struggle with the buttercream too. And so, I go with ganache instead. There's an upside to everything. ;)

  6. I just wanted to say that I don't know if I can help you with the Vikings support this week. I like both teams equally, but I have a personal friend who is deeply invested in the Saints and, well, he knows where I live.I'm so sorry.Also, I make buttercream frosting all the time and now I'm paranoid that I'm doing it wrong. Are people mocking my frosting behind my back?

  7. Four places I've been outside the US:OkinawaPanamaMiddle EastGermany

  8. Alias Mother, I understand. I mean, I'm crushed, but I understand. (The game this weekend scares me.)I'm sure no one is mocking your frosting. The recipe I tried was an Alton recipe that called for bringing sugar and corn syrup to a boil and then slowly adding it to whipped eggs and then adding butter one cube at a time until this perfect buttercream appears. Yeah, it didn't work ALL THREE TIMES THAT I TRIED. I don't know what I'm doing wrong and I'm sure I could just use a different recipe, but I'm stuck on this one.It's a problem.
