For you, Sheri

I found an e-mail in my in-box today (thank you, Sheri, you know I’m always game) challenging me to one of those lists that circulate in cyberspace. I say challenge, because I have a very difficult time narrowing down my likes and dislikes. Luckily, I had four choices this time.

Four most recent jobs you have had in your life:

1. Mother of two and wife to one ;-)
2. Writer for a weekly Army newspaper
3. Reintegration teacher to soldiers returning from war in Iraq and Afghanistan

4. Reporter/Editor for a weekly magazine in Okinawa, Japan

Four places you have lived:
1. Hawaii, USA
2. Okinawa, Japan
3. New Jersey and Georgia, USA
4. Germany

Four places you have been on vacation:
1. Spain (many summers with my parents)
2. Italy (summer camp once)

3. France (summer camp once)
4. Austria (once with my parents)

Four TV shows you love to watch:
1. Lost and Criminal Minds (they count as one since they are on at the same time on the same day and I watch them both)
2. Bones
3. House

4. 24

Four movies you would watch over and over:
1. Serenity (swooning when Simon gets shoot)
2. uh …
3. hmm …

4. eh … (I don’t have enough time to watch four movies over and over, fit in my favorite TV shows, the kids, husband AND my writing)

Four websites I visit daily:
1. (for the inside track in the agent business)
2. (for fun, insightful discussions and great fiction)
3. (online TV guide so I know there’s nothing worth watching on TV)
4. my e-mail account, my website to marvel at the increasing visitor count, my blog for updates

Four of my favorite foods:
1. Meringue (I cannot remember the last time I actually ate some)
2. dark, semi-sweet, semi-bitter chocolate

3. Pasta
4. Nuts

Four places I would rather be right now:

1. on a massage table somewhere
2. in a phone conference with my agent and/or publisher discussing my literary genius [sigh, so not going to happen anytime soon; I don’t have an agent and/or publisher yet ;-]
3. in bed with a great book (someone just recommended MENAGE by Emma Holly)
4. at the Oscars, in an awesome gown size 10 (I was going to say size 2, but I am a realist; have you seen my favorite foods?!)

Feel free to share your favorite likes and dislikes in the comment section. Hello? Is anyone reading this?!
