I've been off the internet lately. The holidays are coming, lots of kid/school/work stuff taking my energy. I hope to re-fill my well after the holiday break.
I've been tagged by my good bud Jenn Morris. I hate these things because it really underscores how boring my life is. But here it is:
4 jobs I have had: This makes me sound less than industrious because I haven't had very many jobs.
I worked for the college I went to, Columbus College of Art and Design as a carpenter for three years. This was a very satisfying job for me. I learned a lot about building, the satisfaction of working with my hands, plus a fellow gimp taught me to juggle when things were slow in the shop.
Bussing tables at a German restaurant called Deibels in Columbus, Ohio (just one night!). I met my husband there - he waited tables. We went to the same small art college but never crossed paths til then.
My first post college job was as a storyboard artist for Atlanta Wristworks, in Atlanta, you know.
After three years at Wristworks I quit and went freelance and I'm still doing that job a few decades later.
4 movies I could watch over and over:
There's Something About Mary (actually peed my pants the first time I saw it)
Sleepless in Seatle (yeah sappy)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (love Tim Burton, love Danny Elfman)
4 places I have lived (apart from where I am now):
On the shores of Lake Erie -Avon Lake, Ohio - where I grew up.
4 TV shows I love:
Not so much on the tv for me. I don't even know how to turn the thing on let alone find something on it so I am at the mercy of my fellow viewers.
Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe
Myth Busters (love the explosions at the end of every episode)
4 places I have been for vacation:
I am boring. I stay home a lot.
Anna Maria Island, Florida (paradise)
North Myrtle Beach
And the car seems to go up to PA way to much lately, but we love to stop in at the Brandywine River Museum to pay homage to the Wyeth family.
websites I visit everyday:lately:
GottaBook - Gregory K's blog (love his Fibs)
Blue Rose Girls
SCBWI discussion boards
4 favorite foods:
beer (please don't tell me that's not food)
any combination of potatoes, cheese, and ham (ham with potatoes au gratin, ham and cheese omelet with hash browns, loaded baked potato, ham and cheese sandwich with fries - better yet cheese fries)
4 places I would rather be:
I'm in my favorite place right now - my studio (I'm lucky!)
At my Aunt's house on Anna Maria Island
Anywhere in the mountains
Austin, Texas - never been but it sounds really good.
