Fun Fours

Fun Fours

There's a fun little meme making its way around the DOC.  It has that old “slam book” feel about it.  I first saw it on Joanne'sblog. I thought I'd take part just to keep the creative juices flowing.

1. Four names people call me other than my real name. 

a)  Momma – I’m not Mom.  My mom is “mom”.  I’m Mommy or Momma.  It’s one of my favorite titles.

b)  Honda – If you ever say it to me, I may be forced to cut you (and probably unfriend you).  Something that came about when I was a baby because I rode on a Honda motorcycle around the trailer park (keeping it classy)..and it’s one letter off of my name.

c) Mrs. Fuselier – I know it’s technically true, but it usually weirds me out a little.  It sounds so formal and uptight, and formal I am not.  However, I’m required to have my nursing students address me as such.

d) Babuh – Easily one of my favorite things to hear.  It’s our name for each other, and it’s unique.  Copyright pending.

2. Four Jobs I’ve Had 

a) Cashier at Eckerd Drug.  For those of you who don’t know what Eckerd’s was, think CVS.  Pretty much same thing.  I made a whopping $3.18/hr.

b)  Phlebotomist.  I moved up in the world to a substantial $6.25/hr.  For five years, I jabbed needles into people to extract their blood.  I heard every vampire joke in the book.

c)  Nurse.  Since age 22.  I’ve done a few different roles in Nursing.  Babies.  Mommies.  Risk Management. Charge. It’s a rewarding career.  I’ve got stories that can keep you entertained all night.

d)  Nursing Instructor.  Most recent job.  I didn’t know if I’d like it, but I actually LOVED it!  It was so much fun to teach nursing students.  They challenged me to think.

3. Four Movies I’ve Watched More Than Once 

a) Top Gun.  Oh my, Tom Cruise.  The Beach volleyball scene.  The tighty-whitey scene.  Enough said.  Made my teenage hormones stir.

b)  Dirty Dancing.  Nobody puts Baby in a corner.  Teenage hormones again.

c) Footloose.  Probably would be so cheesy if I watched it today, but I sure did like that one!  Did I mention I had teenage hormones?

d)  Riding in Cars with Boys.  Such a good movie.  I could relate.

4. Four Books I’d Recommend 

a) The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
b)  Decision Points by George W Bush
c)  Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx
d) Mommy Can’t Fix It (By Me) J

5. Four Places I’ve Lived 

a) Texas City, Texas
b) Arizona
c) Missouri
d) Fort Worth, TX (and other cities in TX)

6. Four Places I’ve Visited

a) New York City
b) Cancun, Mexico
c) Los Angeles, California
d)  St. Joseph, MO.  Trust me.  It’s as boring as it sounds and not nearly as exciting as the first three cities I mentioned.

7. Four Things I Prefer Not To Eat 

*This one was very hard because I love food and am NOT picky.*

a)  Licorice. Gag a maggot.
b)  Italian Sausage.  Just tastes like licorice burps to me.
c) Croutons.  Stale bread is a waste of calories.
d)  Dogs.  Maybe I shouldn’t judge, but it sounds appalling to me.

8. Four of my Favorite Foods

 a) Steak.  (Prime Rib, T-Bone, Ribeye, Filet Mignon).  Cow’s ok; dog, not so much.
b)  Mexican food.  I could eat my birth weight in chips and salsa.
c)  Italian.  Gotta love some good pasta, especially if artichokes are involved.
d)  Indian.  Much to my husband’s chagrin, I love me some curry (and garlic)!

9. Four TV Shows I Watch

a) Modern Family.  One of the wittiest and most real sitcoms on TV today.
b) Breaking Bad.  Easily one of the best, if not THE best, TV drama ever written.
c)  Sons of Anarchy.  Didn’t think I would like it, but we are marathoning this one like a Kenyan!
d)  Cougar Town.  Funny stuff.

10. Four Things I’m Looking Forward To This Year 

a)  Bon Jovi trip.  Need my fix.
b)  Girls’ Vacation (s).  We’re doing a lot of celebrating turning 40!
c)  My annual anniversary vacation with The Man!  It’s always a highlight of my year!
d)  JDRF One Walk.  The AA Team is back in action and hoping to keep their standing in the Top Five Family Teams.

11. Four Things I am Always Saying 

a)  Dag gum!
b)  Do your chores and homework?  Did you do your chores and homework?
c)  When’s your due date?

d)  I love you
