I've Been Tagged!

Oh, this is so exciting. I feel like I've been asked to my first prom. (Long overdue, since I didn't go to mine in high school.)

Fellow Avalon author I.J. Parnham has tagged me. I'm new to this -- can we say "long overdue" again? -- but here's how it goes: I answer the questions below, which Ian posted on his blog. Then, I "tag" four more people, asking them to post their answers to the same questions. It's not a big pressure thing -- it's up to them if they'd like to respond, and up to them if they'd like to pass it on.

But I wanna play! So here goes:

Four Movies that I can see over and over.
1. Casablanca
2. Return to Me
3. Frankenstein ... or Young Frankenstein ... or any of the classic monsters of the '30s and '40s
4. Galaxy Quest ("Never Give Up! Never Surrender!!!")

Four Places I have lived.
1. Colorado Springs, Colorado
2. Covina, California
3. Los Angeles (about 2 blocks from Farmer's Market -- sigh!)
4. Victorville, California

Four TV shows that I love to watch.
1. Wonder Years
2. I Love Lucy
3. The Andy Griffith Show
4. Carnivale (one of these things is not like the others....)

Four places where I have gone on vacation.
1. Yosemite
2. Bryce Canyon
3. Mustang, Oklahoma
4. San Francisco

Four favorite foods.
1. Chinese/Mongolian Barbeque
2. Hole-in-the-wall Mexican food
3. Lobster (rarely, but I can dream!)
4. Popcorn

Four websites I visit daily
1. Facebook
2. Yahoo Mail
3. Bank of America
4. The blogs I'll list when I do my tagging!

Four places I would rather be.
1. On a walk with my husband
2. Bodacious Bundts, our cozy local coffeehouse
3. Barnes & Noble
4. The Golden Gate Bridge

Four things that I would like to do before I die.
1. Write a bestseller
2. Take my husband to England -- a visit to Abbey Road is a must!
3. See my children happily married (and maybe grandkids?!)
4. Finish knitting that sweater I started in August '05!

Four novels I wish that I was reading for the first time.
1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
2. The Lucifer Cove series by Virginia Coffman
3. The Stand by Stephen King
4. Cold Tea on a Hot Day by Curtiss Ann Matlock

Four people to tag.
1. Stephanie Newton
2. Jennifer Shirk
3. Curtiss Ann Matlock
4. Cathy Pegau

Thanks for the chore--er, I mean tag. LOL!

I'll post mine on Thursday. :)

Sierra Donovan said...

Thanks, Jennifer. I know a blogger as Prolific and Conscientious as you will have no trouble.

Did I lay that on thick enough? ;)

Cathy in AK said...

Yeah, Sierra...thanks : ) I'll have to work on mine. So don't blame me if I don't get to writing for the next day or so.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oooh...yeah. That was nice and thick. You're good for my blogging ego. LOL!!

One of these days I'll get round to watching Carnivale and I'm sure I'll love it. I just saw it the once and it didn't quite click, but it has stuck in the mind.

CurtissAnn said...

No wonder we 'click'-- so much in common! Only I've never heard of Carnivale. I have not had television since moving to AL.

I enjoyed reading your post. I do hope I can make time to play!

I probably wouldn't have ever heard of CARNIVALE -- we don't have HBO -- but my husband's brother gave us his copy of Season One on DVD when he was finished watching it. The first episode, we weren't sure we had a handle on it ... by two or three episodes, we were hooked.

It's a surreal, apocalyptic story set at a strange carnival -- guess where? -- in the Dust Bowl of Oklahoma in the 1930s. Lots of edgy stuff about good and evil, with sometimes-ambiguous religious themes ... but ultimately, we were very pleased with it. It only ran for two seasons, and thanks to the magic of DVD, we watched the whole series in about 2 months.
