I got tagged by JoWynn at Parkview 616

Stop by and say hello to her, and check out her link to the work of dollmaker and embrioderer Kay Susan Warner. It's an inspiring must-see.

So here's the MeMe:

1. Jobs I've had:
elementary school teacher's aide, donations sorter at the Salvation Army, waitress, college professor.

2. Films I can watch over and over:
Moonstruck, Coal Miner's Daughter, the British tv series Absolutely Fabulous (it's like The Devil Wears Prada, but in bad taste).

3. TV shows I watch: Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Sopranos, The Hills, whatever my nineteen year old daughter exposes me to.

4. Places I have lived: San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego County. I've spent my whole life in California.

5. Favorite foods: Dungeness crab, (the season just openend), salmon, winter squash, chocolate cake.

6. Favorite colors: barn red, lime green, orangey-gold.

7. Places I would love to be right now: I'm not a fan of hot weather, but today's a cold wet day here in the northwest. I'd sit on the beach in Zihuatanejo and drink a beer. Here I am last January doing just that:

8. Names I love but would not use on my children: I love names that would fit opera singers: Solange, Monserrat, Rosario.

Who wants to do this meme and hasn't already? Consider youself challenged.

Sissy in Coal Miner's Daughter is just the best!

I'm so glad you and JoWynn have found each other...
...and I would certainly join you in Zihoat' on the Playa de los Gatos....

I love Coal Miner's Daughter and have seen it several times. Do you like opera as well as opera star names? I watched the recently released Tosca with Catherine Malfitano and Bryn Terfel last night. Fabulous!

I'm with you on endless reruns of "Moonstruck" and "Ab-Fab." (So is DH, fortunately.) And "Curb" is a recent new bad habit. I perceive we have the same low sense of humor!!
