I’m It

Lookee here, I’ve been tagged by Liz. Hmmm, let me see, answers buried in this brain somewhere . . .

Four jobs I have had in my life —

  1. dog sales, retail, PJs Petstore, Sherway Gardens (heartbreaking, dirty, terrible job, where the manager had a super crush on me and proceeded to make my life hell after seeing my boyfriend pick me up from work one night)
  2. admin, arts, Ontario Ballet Theatre/Ontario School of Ballet (and you think poets are divas . . . there’s nothing quite like a dancer in the morning)
  3. admin, tech, Interactive Media Group (absolutely insane position on a team of two where we basically provided all admin support from event planning and ordering supplies right down to sending everybody’s faxes and doing all the wordprocessing for 100+ head office employees of three companies [Phoneworks, Telepersonals, Axon Studios] with offices in most major North American cities and a few abroad handling the switchboard alone was a full-time job. Hundred hour weeks were the norm, with maybe an hour or two of sleep each night, three was a huge luxury, the rest of my time was spent in transit or socialising with co-workers. Is it any wonder everyone’s marriage/relationship fell apart within the first six months of employment here? Cuz everyone was living the same way. I was well-paid though and loved my job at the time)
  4. waitress, Darlene’s Tea House (suffice it to say, I am probably the worse waitress ever, but when I needed some cash Darlene helped me out. I’m a much better bartender though. The thing about waitressing was I wasn’t allowed to smoke or drink while I was doing it, plus I had to remember tons of stuff OR be organised enough to write it all down in a concise easy-to-follow manner, which lets face it is not a recipe for my success. Also I had to pretend I liked the public, which can only be faked while drunk)

Four movies I could watch over and over —

This is super hard! So many movies . . . only four . . . there are hundreds of them I could (will/have) watch(ed) over and over. Of course you already know I love Platoon, Fight Club, Vanilla Sky, Lost in Translation etc. so maybe I’ll go another route . . .

  1. The Wedding Singer, Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore, the 80’s complete with a Billy Idol cameo, c’mon, what’s not to love?
  2. Intermission, Cillian Murphy, Colm Meaney & Colin Farrell, 54 characters and 11 storylines, dark, edgy, and freaking hilarious.
  3. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Johnny Depp & Benicio Del Toro, Hunter S. Thompson, the critics gave this one a hard time but I nearly pee my pants every time I watch it, they did a good job . . . and of course I’ve got the Criterion Collection edition with all those great extras like rare Hunter radio interviews and tv documentaries.
  4. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, completely off the wall and wacky, yet serious, scenes all out of order, c’mon, of course I love this movie.

Four places I have been on Vacation —

I haven’t taken many “vacations” in my life . . . I’m more of a road trip kinda gal

  1. Toronto (sightseeing & shopping when I was 16, recent jon bon excursion)
  2. Collingwood (a ski trip to Blue Mountain . . . that’s Collingwood right? So long ago and so traumatic I’ve almost completely blocked it out)
  3. Alma (seedy motels abound)
  4. PEI (a tenting disaster, back in the ferry days the boys held me over the edge about mid-way out there, fun, wow!)

Four things on the floor/ trunk of your car —

No trunk. No car. But I’ve got a floor littered with . . .

  1. hundreds of manilla envelopes
  2. an unopened Duracell battery charger
  3. two unopened white extension cords
