Fun Friday, Four Facts Survey

I was nominated to participate in a survey by a fellow blogger, Anxious Mom .  Since she’s always shown me lots of blog love, and since I’m exhausted by the demonic weather we had rumble through last night, I figured this was a good topic to explore today.

Yeah. This was gnarly.

Yeah. This was gnarly.

The questions are as follows:

Four names people call me other than my real name: Bob, Mommy, Mama, Wife (super creative, I know)

Four movies I have watched more than once: (ooooooo how to choose?) Poltergeist, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, The Empire Strikes Back

Four books/authors I’d recommend: (I should note that since spawning I have NO time to read)

  • The Game of Thrones books – except the last one.   Didn’t like that.
  • St. Exupery’s The Little Prince
  • I really do/did love Steinbeck
  • (Don’t laugh) My ancient invertebrate paleontology text from college

Four places I have lived: Georgia, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Louisiana

Four places I have visited: Toronto, Boston, New York, Vegas

Four things I’d rather be doing right now (it should be noted I’m at work):

  • Drilling through the back of my hand
  • Gouging out  my own eyes
  • Giving myself hundreds of paper cuts
  • Having dental work done, sans anesthetic

Four foods I do not like: shrimp, gluten-free cake (I mean come on, really.   That isn’t cake.), really stinky cheeses, sauerkraut

Four of my favorite foods: Tom kha gai soup, pho, spaghetti with marinara, eclairs

Four shows I watch: Game of Thrones, Ink Master, Gotham,  Top Chef

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

  • Today, my daughter’s last  day of kindergarten with the wretched Harpy

    Someone's ready for summer

    Someone’s ready for summer

  • Camping this weekend
  • Thanksgiving at the beach with my mom
  • Halloween/Xmas with my kids, as that shit just gets better every year

Four things I’m always saying:

  • “No”
  • “Dammit”
  • “Stop it”
  • “How many mommies do you have?!”

Now the hard part: the nominations.  Unfortunately, Anxious Mom and I have a rather incestuous blog relationship.  Many of the folks she’s nominated are ones I would have as well.  I can tap a few, who are under no obligation to participate:

Cookie   (She is hilarious!)

Merber  (Sometimes poignant, sometimes good for a belly laugh.)

Nerd in the Brain   (Be patient.  She’s under some construction right now.)

And my grumpiest of pals, Bitter Ben

I love all of you guys (including most of Anxious Mom’s list).  Seriously, I have way more blog friends than I do IRL.  Have a swell weekend.

    Enjoyed your answers, especially how gluten-free cake isn’t cake. I’ve never tasted it, and wouldn’t. Whole grain stuff is bad enough.

    I will have to do this, it looks like fun. 🙂
