I’ve been tagged by Sarah! Here we go:

1. Name your 2 favorite scrapbooking topics: travel, cats

2. What are the 2 best places you've been to? Paris, Vancouver Island, but can I name more? Chincoteague Island (Virginia), Seattle, Maine, England, Switzerland...

3. Name 2 things you do every day: check my e-mail, listen to NPR

4. Tell us 2 things that pretty much everyone knows about you. I have a daughter and two cats.

5. 2 places you wish to visit: Galapagos Islands, Himalayan Mountains, but can I name more? Antarctica, Tahiti, back to Paris....I could go on and on!

6. 2 things you may not know about me are: I’m an only child and only grandchild (on one side of my family), I hate water

7. 2 nicknames you've had at some time in your life: Jan (but almost everyone calls me that, so maybe it’s not a nickname), JP

8. Name 2 of your favorite drinks: Diet Coke, Starbucks caramel lattes with whip and caramel drizzle (heated to 170 degrees, thank you very much)

9. The question I’m adding is this: What are 2 interesting (in a good or bad way) jobs you’ve had in your life?

In college, I took a few jobs through a temp agency. One day, I had to wait tables in a dinner theater. I took drink orders for a table of retired ladies and decided not to write any of it down (I have no idea why). Well, I couldn’t remember half of the drinks, then they turned out the lights in the theater and I couldn’t find my way back to the table. As I stumbled around with my tray of drinks, I spilled all over one of the ladies. Needless to say, that job lasted only one day. I also was an temporary office manager for a surgeon and got to assist one day with a hemorroidectomy. (No further details about that will be shared! I assure you: You do NOT want to know!)

Notice a theme? :-) All of the questions have 2 in them. Answer the questions, add one question of your own (this tag started with 4 questions) and then tag 2 people. Simple enough?

I'm tagging Darcey and Toners

I'm looking forward to seeing your answers!

Great answers! Love the new question. You have an entertaining couple of stories there. :)

Colleen said...

Yeah! This is so much fun!

Cheri said...

Well I'm not tagged, but I'm gonna do this anyway (check out my blog tomorrow, not sure I'll get them done tonight:)

Maybe when you & I win the lottery we can afford to do all the traveling we want to do!
