Four Things

Four names that people call me other than my real name:

1. Kong (Matty B calls me this. It’s a really long story, but thankfully, has nothing to do with King Kong, so I’m not offended.)
2. Mrs. Bryant (throwback to my teaching days- some of my former students who attend the university still call me this:)
3. Sister Aunt B calls me this and I kind of love it.
4. Mommy (the most important of all)


Four jobs I’ve had:

1. Waitress (14 years old at my parent’s bakery)
2. Secretary (in college, in the boys dorm. I didn’t hate it.)
3. Teacher (it’s kinda in my blood)
4. Marketing (still trying to figure this one out…)

Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

This is actually a tough one for me because my tolerance for movies is pretty low.

1. The Sound of Music (this is actually on Unk C’s Christmas list, which is hilarious.)
2. Talladega Nights (I adore Will Ferrell)
3. All the Harry Potters (sorry, dad…)
4. Home Alone (and always at Christmas)


Four books I’d recommend:

1. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, by Dave Eggers
2. All the Harry Potters (sorry, dad…)
3. Mere Christianity, by C.S. Lewis
4. The Gourmet Cookbook

Four Six places I’ve lived:

1. Pendleton, OR
2. Boise, ID
3. Colton, CA
4. Sandpoint, ID
5. Fairview, OR
6. Walla Walla, WA


Four places I’ve visited:

1. Nassau, Bahamas
2. Caracas, Venezuela
3. Washington DC
4. Stevenson, WA


Four places I’d rather be right now:

It’s Friday afternoon and I’m with my kids. The short answer? Nowhere. The long answer:

1. A hot bubble bath
2. Orlando, FL (it was apparently 80 degrees yesterday?)
3. New York (I’d love to do NYC during the holidays!)
4. Paris (because, Paris)

Four things I prefer not to eat:

1. Meat
2. Eggnog
3. Baby corns
4. Snow cones

Four of my favorite foods:

1. Peanut butter
2. Ketchup
3. Hummus
4. Coffee


Four TV shows I watch(ed?)

Can this be past tense? I don’t watch a lot of TV these days…

1. Breaking Bad (I have a secret crush on Jesse)
2. The Biggest Loser
3. Friends (absolutely obsessed, I will catch every Friends reference you ever throw at me.)
4. The Office (but only until Steve Carrell left and then I didn’t care anymore.)

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

1. Some 5k’s/10k’s. No more 13.1 for me. That kind of messed up my hips. Shorter distances are better for me.

2. A weekend away with Matty B

3. My June CSA box. Yes, I realize it’s 6 months away…

4. Christmas with these folks-


Four things I’m always saying:

1. Say sorry! (To the kids)
2. Can I throw this away? (To Matty B)
3. Are you making good choices? (To all three)
4. Blast!
