Four jobs I’ve had:
Magician's Assistant: Yes, I've been sawed into three pieces. But I can’t say how it's done because I am sworn to secrecy.
Legal Secretary: In the days when secretaries used typewriters. And everything had to be typed in triplicate, using carbon paper. So every time, I made a mistake, I made it three times. Ugh. I was a high school kid with very little patience and I almost smashed the typewriter several times.
Computer Teacher: I taught programming. Yeah, that seems funny now.
Waitress: Everything I needed to know about sexual harassment and more.
Four movies I've seen more than once
The Wizard of Oz
The Sound of Music
The Mirror has Two Faces
Four places I’ve lived
Well, mainly I’ve lived in the same place my whole life. I did go to college in a north country town that no one but Rob has ever heard of. And I spent a semester in London. Do either of those count?
I can’t even come up with four different houses I’ve lived in – it’s only been three: my parents’ house, the house I lived in for the first twelve years of my marriage, and my current home.
Four TV shows I’ve seen more than one episode of
Four places I've been on vacation
Camping in the sand dunes of Cape Hatteras
Rafting on the Colorado River
Camping at Acadia in Maine
Hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
Four blogs I visit daily
I can never do the part of a meme that asks me to single out blogs. I never tag anyone either. I don't like that part of playing games. When I was a kid, the gym teacher used to pick two kids to be captains of teams and let them choose kids until the class was divided up, and I always just felt so sorry for the kids who got chosen last. I still can remember the look on their faces, even though they would pretend they didn’t care. But it always happens, if you start choosing, someone will get left out and be last. I hate that. I know that people like to get tagged for memes, but I worry that people who don’t get tagged get left out.
You can imagine how much fun I am on hiring committees. I just hate the whole process.

Last four vehicles I’ve owned
All have been small Ford Taurus station wagons, none of them bought new. It's pretty much the only reasonably-sized vehicle I can ever find that has eight seatbelts (which I often need) – unless I moved up to a bigger vehicle like a van or an SUV, and I don't want to drive something that gets such bad gas mileage.
Things in my life that come in fours

I have four siblings.
I am 44 years old.
