Time for a game of tag...

Okay, so I have been tagged by Student Nurse, prn (sorry for being so slow on the uptake). This is going to be tough, because I can think of at least a dozen for many of these categories:

Four Jobs I've Had in My Life:
1. Counter waitress at Howard Johnson's, Brattleboro, Vt.

2. Photo finish operator at Hinsdale Race Track, Hinsdale, NH

4. Shovelling horse and cow poo, painting barns, planting, pruning, and weeding tomato plants, picking tomatoes, driving a small tractor(tilling and spraying), Brattleboro, Vt.

Four Movies I Could Watch Over and Over (only four! Darn. I could think of dozens!):

1. American Beauty
2. 2001 a Space Odysey (almost any Kubric to tell the truth, 'cept that last one: Eyes Wide... Yeech It's Tom Cruise)
3. Office Space
4. It's a Wonderful Life
Honorable Mention: A Fish Called Wanda, The Fifth Element, Blade Runner...

3. Babelogue/Rock 'n' Roll Nigger, Patti Smith Group
4. Broken English, Marianne Faithful, Broken English
Honerable Mention (About 500 more songs!!!!!)

Four Reasons Why I Blog?
1. I need a creative outlet. I find blogging/vblogging is fun and relaxing.
2. to share my experience with those who might find it interesting or helpful. Specifically anyone considering career change or going into nursing.
3. It allows me to let my feelings out and clarify my ideas.
4. I like watching the "body of work" evolve. Each entry on it's own is a piece of the puzzle. When you look at the blog as a whole- it takes on a whole new life.

Four people I tag to do this?
1. Anyone who has the desire and time to do it.
2. Nurse Practitioner's Place
3. Third Degree Nurse
4. MissBHavens

I understand some people don't like or have time for these things. If you can't or just don't wanna - don't sweat it.

Hello. Reading your lists makes me think you might enjoy having a look at my brother's blog: He is in Vietnam/Thailand/Cambodia right now. He treks around checking out temples etc for a few months each year, returning home (Canada) to earn enough for the next adventure.

OK, I've done my list. I had to change the title on some list to fit into my life. I don't recall ever reading any books more than once, so if I wanted to list books that I read over and over, the list would be empty.
