I'm Not a Virgin Anymore!

(Calm down, Mr. Big - don't let the title fool ya!)

I have officially been "tagged" by Julie! I feel like a schoolgirl who has just been invited by the "in-crowd" to sit at their special table during lunch. Here's hoping I don't get ketchup on my blouse during my first outing!

Four jobs I have had in my life:

1. Piano teacher - my youngest student was 5; my oldest was an arthritic 65-year old.
2. Sales girl for Parklane Hosiery chain
3. Bartender
4. Pianist for Mormon and Presbyterian churches (but not at the same time)

Four movies I could watch over and over:

1. Six Degrees of Separation - LOVED Stockard Channing and Will Smith's interaction!
2. The Talented Mr. Ripley, featuring a young, hot, talented Mr. Damon.
3. American Beauty - strangely, I identified closely with Kevin Spacey's character.
4. Titanic, because it haunted me. And I like Leo, even if Songbird thinks he's oily.

Four Places I have lived:

1. Huntington Beach, CA
2. Magnolia, TX
3. College Station, TX
4. Austin, TX

Four things I like to do:

1. Get away from everything and become totally immersed in a book.
2. Listen to new music with my kiddo. She has enlightened me!
3. Dance all night at a club with friends.
4. Watch football - even better if I can attend a game.
(Reading those answers, someone might think I have dual personalities!)

Four of my favorite foods:

1. Cheese enchiladas
2. Spinach/artichoke dip
3. Cheese blintzes
4. Guacamole Salad

Four places I would like to be right now:

1. Sunning myself on a beach in California.
2. Trekking across Europe with my daughter - taking in EVERY important landmark.
3. Investigating the pyramids of Egypt.
4. Shopping in New York City for SHOES!

Four websites I visit daily:

1. dooce
2. The Big Question
3. Go Fug Yourself
4. Stuff on My Cat - What could be funnier?

Four places I have been on vacation:

1. Laguna Beach, CA
2. Chicago, IL
3. South Padre Island, TX
4. Eureka Springs, AR

Four friends I think might respond (this is the part where I "tag" folks, right?):

1. Songbird, I mean, what are best friends for?
2. M J, because she seems really nice.
3. Belinda, because boy, she can WRITE!
4. Karmyn R, because she is a faithful visitor.

Sigh...I survived my first meme, and no blood was shed!
Oh...and as a POSTSCRIPT, I had to post my results from my pirate test, which I stole from Songbird, in honor of Pirate's Day!

My pirate name is:

Captain Jenny Cash

Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. You're musical, and you've got a certain style if not flair. You'll do just fine. Arr!

What is a cheese blintzes? Am I lame?

Tiggerlane said...

Shauna --- don't feel bad. There are many versions of this treat, but I usually make crepes from scratch, then fill with a mixture of cottage cheese, egg, sour cream, vanilla, sugar and lemon peel. I fill and roll the crepes, and fry the blintzes. Then, I usually cook up a sauce made of strawberry preserves and cooking sherry - get it real nice and melty, then pour over the top of the fried treats. Add a little powdered sugar on top and voila! (It's usually best to chill the rolled blintzes before frying...helps them stay together.)

Enjoyed reading your "tag assignment"...and the blintzes sound yummy. No calories, or fat grams, or carbs...I'm sure.

Sorry for the delay.. I've been in moving hell.

Tiggerlane said...

Thank goodness you're not talking like a pirate, MJ! I'm all "aaarrr"-ed out!

Swampwitch said...

Haven't seen your around my place lately...I'm backin' way up to see if I can find you.

Karmyn R said...

Okay - I've done the tag. It was fun.

piglet said...

Funny you are doing pirate things. Oh? Pirates day? I had NO IDEA!!!!

I have been scouring the internet for pictures of Pirates and skulls/cross bones for our coffin that I am turning into a sail boat. We love pirates.

Hi, I came here via MJ -

I had to comment because I LOVE Stuff on my Cat. That is the best.

I keep trying to put stuff on my cats, but they're snarky and hate me. ;)

Pamela said...

That cat link was awesome.

I wish I'd had a camera this morning - v e r y early. I came out with my pilllow and blankie to my big easy chair to ease some aches and pains that woke me.

Drifted back to sleep only to be woke up with the caterwaulin of horror. Another cat had come through our cat door and there was a cat fight at my feet.

I screamed so loud that the stray cat shot out the cat door and my hubby came scrambling down the hall like all get out...

Of course, I don't think they would have posed for my camera.

Tiggerlane said...

Welcome, melissa!

And my cat doesn't hold still long enough for me to submit an entry - she is snarky, too.

Love the description, pamela!

If I ever get something on my cat, I'll send it to you first! ;)

I do however, get stuff on my dog. Way easier.
