let's play tag

I didn’t much like playing Tag. I was more of a Hide-and-Seek kind of girl. Or Sardines; I really liked playing Sardines… But I’ve been tagged by Vol Abroad… and so I oblige:

5 JOBS YOU’VE HAD IN YOUR LIFE: (1) Substitute Teacher for the Lawrence County School System, (2) String writer for the Democrat-Union, (3) ROTC cadet summer of 2001, (4) Volunteer assistant debate coach (and although I didn’t technically get paid for it, I worked hard enough to call it a job), (5) I’m going to lump all of my nursing stuff under this one--from the ICU to psychiatric nursing to an oncology clinic, it’s been good to me.

5 TV SHOWS YOU LOVE TO WATCH: (1) House – it had to grow on me, but it’s my favorite now, (2) Angel – because everybody has a soft place in their heart for vampires, (3) the Simpsons, reruns or new shows, (4) Chalk Zone and Cartoon Network on the days where life around me is just a little to real, (5) Monday Night Football.

5 OF YOUR FAVORITE FOODS: (1) okra, (2) sweet potatoes, (3) pizza, (4) Kleeman’s chicken on eggbread the way Nana cooks it, (5) just about anything chocolate, especially dark chocolate.

5 PLACES YOU’D RATHER BE: (1) helping the Colts play better against the Steelers, (2) worrying about what we were going to do with the 900 million dollars we just won from playing powerball, (3) signing autographs at my book-signing thrown by Barnes and Noble, (4) shopping with Sister, (5) looking for a job because somebody found the cure for all cancers.

5 ALBUMS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT: (1) Eva Cassidy’s Live at Blues Alley, (2) the Magnolia soundtrack (Aimee Mann), (3) James Taylor’s Pull Over, (4) the songs on The Hater’s Ipod that I like, not to be confused with the other 70% of the songs he plays, (5) Marrianne Beard’s Greatest Hits. (with special props to KOMA FM radio)

5 FOLKS I’M TAGGING:
(1) Angry Dissenter, (2) Unequivocal Prowess, (3) Jane, (4)The Hater, (5) Andrew, who says that he reads my blog, but never posts anything because he’s a dork like his brother.

Tagging me is like diving for the fat girl after you have run around for awhile and can't find anyone else to tag...

dang it! I was always it until someone took pity on me and volunteered to be it just to keep the game more interesting...

And it is a shame that the Colts lost because we made a pact last night and although I love Rothlisburger, I pulled hard core for the OTHER Manning with all of my might and nothing good came of it.

No kidding --- The Hater's still in mourning. I think we should send Peyton a sympathy card.
