Fours For Friday (err, Monday)

After seeing this meme float around the DOC (and especially after seeing Stephen participate, because I believe Stephen is a great example to follow), I decided it would make for a fun and light Friday post.  (Much better than downer rantings about scary low blood sugars.)  But then, Friday got away from me and no post got posted.  So Fours For Friday has become the much less fun title of Fours For Monday.

Four names people call me other than my real name.
  • Chickadeedle - Mom called me this when I was little
  • Bubsy - Dad called me this when I was little.  They called my brother Turkey Brain, so obviously I was thrilled with Chickadeedle and Bubsy.
  • K.C. - My initials before I got married.  I always feel the need to point out that I did not name my cat K.C. - she already had that name when we adopted her.
  • Puddin’ Pie - Pete calls me this.
Four jobs I’ve had.
  • Grocery store cashier
  • Secretary in a lawyer’s office
  • Cable advertising traffic coordinator
  • Cable advertising traffic supervisor
Four movies I’ve watched more than once
  • Gone with the Wind
  • The Godfather
  • 40 Year Old Virgin
  • Bridget Jones’s Diary
Four books I would recommend
  • Gone with the Wind
  • The Godfather - (noticing a pattern here?)
  • Anna Karenina
  • Anything by Agatha Christie
Four places I’ve lived
  • My parent’s house (Connecticut)
  • College dorm room (near Boston)
  • College apartment (still near Boston)
  • My own house (back in Connecticut again)
Four places I’ve visited
  • Bacardi Rum Factory (Puerto Rico)
  • Tabasco Factory (Avery Island, Louisiana)
  • Bermuda Rum Cake Bakery (Royal Naval Dockyard, Bermuda)
  • Where they make the Medtronic CGM Sensors . . . . ummmm The Sensor Factory? The Sensor Assembly Line?  I don’t know what to call it, but it was cool!!   (Northridge, California)
Four things I prefer not to eat
  • Mashed potatoes - Ewwww.  Just hate them.  My mom does too.
  • Any kind of bean except jelly beans
  • Moldy cheeses (Blue, Gorgonzola, Camembert, etc.  Yuck!)
  • Runny eggs (Over-easy, Sunny-side up, Poached, Runny Scrambled Eggs, etc.  Yuck!)
Four of my favorite foods
  • Lobster anything (lobster rolls, lobster bisque, lobster pie, lobster ravioli, etc.)
  • Fried mozzarella and a small Greek salad from a restaurant I’ve been going to since grammar school.
  • Cheesecake.  Unless it has fruit on it.  I like fruit, just not on my cheesecake.  But chocolate or caramel are just fine.
  • My Chicken Tortilla Soup
Four TV shows I watch
  • Castle
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • The Blacklist
  • The Goldbergs
Four things I’m looking forward to this year
  • #dblogcheck day tomorrow!! - Are you in?
  • The Diabetes UnConference this weekend.
  • JDRF Government Day next weekend.
  • Getting my laptop back. - Yes, that new laptop I bought in December died last month (on Friday the 13th, no less).  It’s gone back to Dell for repair and I feel like I’ll never get it back and I’ll be stuck trying to get by on my crappy netbook forever.
Four things I’m always saying
  • So’s your Mama - Pete started saying this, then I started, and now we’re addicted.  It’s kind of annoying (so’s your Mama) but we just can’t stop.
  • Random quotes from 40 Year Old Virgin -I’ve probably watched that movie way too many times.
  • Fuck - Sorry, just being honest.
  • Who’s the cutest kitten in the world?  Or Who’s my little baby good girl.  Or Kitten?  Kitten?  Come for a snuggle.  Or Hey!!!!  Stop scratching that. -  I could go on, but I guess you already understand I’m a crazy cat lady. And yes, she scratches the couch and armchair all the time.

Okay.  So.  Now that you know way too much about me, who want to do this meme next?
