Getting to know me

A dear friend sent me this little quiz and so I thought I would post it here to give you a chance to get to know me a bit more. I know that you all were dying to know more about me! This sounds like a very self-centered post, and basically, yes, it is.

A) Four jobs I have had in my life
1. Checker at Wal-mart
2. Lifeguard
3. Hostess at El Chico
4. Surgical Tech. at an outpatient surgery center

B) Four movies I would watch over & over...and have (This was a hard one to answer since I usually fall asleep in movies. A better question would have been: "Name four movies that you have seen in it's entirety." The ones that I listed, I only put because I have seen them more than once. I'm also, adding as honorable mention The Sound of Music, and The Music Man.)
1. 8 Seconds
2. St. Elmo's Fire
3. Grease
4. A Christmas Story

C) Four places I have lived
1. White Hall, AR
2. Sheridan, AR
3. Guy, AR
4. Little Rock, AR

D) Four TV shows I love to watch (This was also difficult. I wouldn't necessarily say that I love to watch these shows with the exception of American Idol. The others, I like and try to catch them on occasion.)
1. Jeopardy
2. Without a Trace
3. American Idol
4. Martha

E) Four places I have been on vacation
1. Gulf Shores/Destin
2. Disney (as a child)
3. Skiing in Colorado & New Mexico
4. Wyoming (Old Faithful and the Grand Titans)

F) Websites I visit daily/bi-weekly (I could have put a lot more on this one. There are a lot of people's blogs that I visit regularly. These are just the ones that are usually updated when I check them. I also have to add mine to the list. I like to check the counter:) you'd think I'd update it more as often as I check it!)
1. Amy's Humble Musings
2. i am chief
3. life in' saw
4. Girl Talk

G) Four of my favorite foods
1. Cheese dip from Senor Tequila
2. Papa John's Pizza
3. Anything from P.F. Chang's
4. Hershey's kisses with almonds

H) Four places I would rather be right now
1. On a beach
2. In my bed sleeping
3. In a quiet cabin in the woods
4. Heaven

I) Four people I think will respond (A lot of people responded! Thanks to Rachel J., Summer, Phoebe, Amanda, Hannah J., Candy, Wendy, and Krista so far!)
1. Amanda (my sister)
2. Hannah J.
3. Kelsey (my niece)
4. Courtney

Okay, for the sake of newness, I am adding one more question to the list and you all can leave your answers in the comments. I am baring my soul to you on this one, so you all better be honest with me too!

J)What was your nickname as a child?
Skeeter-yes, skeeter. I played softball growing up, and my coach, who was also my pastor and my best friend's dad, gave me that name and it stuck until I was a teenager!

Although, after this post, my new nickname could be
The link miester!

Could you please tell us WHY he called you Skeeter? I think your readers should know the ENTIRE STORY!

We're waiting...

iamchief said...

Do I need to give you a hint?

As her sister, I have heard that name many, many times, and have done my best to bring it up if need be. But, I don't really even know the story either. I think i need some clarity. I only know the one about her wetting her pants on the ballfield. luv ya.

GOOD GRIEF!!! i never thought i would get so much harassment over a nickname! i thought it was enough to reveal that my nickname was SKEETER, but you people are ruthless!

so, iamchief (DH), the name came because my coach said i had little mosquito legs (not so much anymore)and i looked like a little "skeeter" running around the bases. and it kinda rhymed with my name.


DS (little one:), I AM TOLD, (i truly do not remember this, maybe i blocked it out of my memory) that once there was an exciting play where i had to run back and forth between 2nd and 3rd several times and was almost tagged out, but i made it to 3rd base. so, after all that running, i wet my pants on 3rd base. BTW, this was teeney league age (6-8), so i was little, it's not like i was in high school and wet my pants on the ballfield!

are you all satisfied now!!?? :) i STILL haven't recieved any legitimate comments from anyone telling me their own nicknames!

iamchief said...

thank you.

iamchief, "A", Uncle A, Big A, A-Ron, Idon, Silas, Si, Silly-oasis, Neddlenose, etc.

Hannah said...

My sister calls me Hoonie, my aunt called me Spaz, to dad I was his Scumbadabumbas he likes to make up words. Mom calls me Ace.

Amanda said...

Because i love you so, and i must love you to reveal this, and, i'm not surprised you haven't told on me yet, but mom and dad (mostly mom) used to call me scooterpoo. I dont know why.


Amanda said...

Dad calls me little one, and I think its sweet.

Phoebe said...

My friends started calling me Phebbs in high school, where I also acquired the following (note the incorrect spelling, that gives way to the pronunciation):

Phobe Dick, Phobe One Canobe (sp?), and Pheobe

My dad calls me Phebbster and my sister calls me Creepers (as in Jeepers Creepers where'd you get those eyes?) since I have big blue eyes.

I'm wondering if Amanda's nickname came about after an embarrasing bowel malfunction while riding a moped?
