My Doctor Says There's No Creme for Tag

Barry's Baghdad Blog

Ok, so BBB gave me the tagging. And thank goodness this isn't my first one. Because a little while ago I got tagged...and I didn't know what to do with/about it.

In fact, I think I answered all of the questions in the Tagger's comments. Then there was the time that I got tagged, and I think I literally forgot to respond. You know, in the .5 of a second it took me to see something else and run after it.

I think it's neat-o that people try and include me in stuff after I've demonstrated over and over again how wrong I can go with it.

So, here's my official, and hopefully less annoying (although I seriously doubt that) response to BBB's tag:

Four Jobs I've Had:

1. Telephone survey minion. Mystery Shopper for fast food chain. These were for the same company. This was the perfect job for me in high school, as I looked like a punk rock trainwreck.

2. Planogram team at Target. I also worked a cash register for exactly 4 minutes before they realized that I had more fun with the scanning gun than was ever intended.

3. Mail Boxes Etc. - before BROWN came around and bought them all up. I was a jack of all box duties and this register was an older one. No scanning gun. Totally off the subject, but I'm on a one girl mission to change the name of the Fed Ex Kinkos stores to FINKOS. Mr. Zoom must now, in my presence, refer to any former Kinkos as FINKOS.

4. Receptionist at a law firm. They quickly got me the hell out of that position, as more than one blinky line at a time made for "accidental" disconnections.

Four Movies I Can Watch Over and Over:

1. Wizards
2. Dream with the Fishes
3. Billy Madison
4. Repo Man

Four Places I Have Lived:

1. Albuquerque, NM
2. 29 Palms, CA
3. Somewhere else in CA
4. Somewhere Somewhere else in CA.

Four T.V. Shows I Love:

1. Scrubs
2. Lost
3. The Soup (on the E Channel)
4. ALL the reality crime shows on A&E channel

Four Places I Have Vacationed:

1. IRELAND!!
2. Thailand
3. Pennsylvania
4. Arizona

Four of my Favorite Dishes:

This better mean food, because the only dishes I know about are paper ones with food on them.

1. Chow Mein.
2. Gringo Burrito - Whole wheat tortilla with rice, chicken and broccoli - and a mystery sauce.
3. Beef
4. Tortellini. Did I even spell that right?

Four Sites I Visit Daily:

1. www.milkandcookies.com
2. http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/index.htm
3. http://www.mcsweeneys.net/ - although I KNOW I don't get half the funny out of it. Freaking Big Brains with a sense of humor make me so jealous.
4. My blog links.

Four Places I'd Rather Be Right Now:

1. IRELAND!!
2. Seattle
3. Canada
4. Working in the same office as Mr. Zoom again.

Four People I Am Tagging:

I think I'm supposed to put in a cute little link with everybody's name...
That's about as likely as me NOT spilling my morning coffee on my chest. Mr. Zoom calls it "splitting the uprights."

Anyway. Just try to forgive my unlinkiness, k?

1. Al - Jeeber's pal.
2. Rev. Brandy
3. My Idiot (Mr. Zoom - it might just be time for his every six months update)
4. Andy T13

How fun! Thanks for playing. And for the visit. And for the story of success. I'll be sure to pass the last one on!

Hey ex-punk rock train wreck, like to know what fun you had with the scan gun.
...and tortellini's rule.
Got to vacation on Long Island someday, if you like beaches.

AndyT13 said...

Gaaa! Tagged! My first time too! I occasionally steal these things but no one ever tagged me with one.
I shall endeavor to not disappoint.

BTW, besides typing out the URL (to make a link) you can select a word, then hold down ctl-shift-A
and you get a pop up that let's you type in a link (or copy and paste it from another browser).
Just so ya know.

Boston - She who is Sass Queen - you are welcome.

Poly - I'd scan my co-workers and yell "DORK!" Turns out that isn't part of the Target mission.

HEEEE! Andy! I'm your first! And oh my gosh THANK YOU for the link advice. Now I can quit it with the mile long links. I only got a link to Barry by using the "blog this" feature.

About time you updated your... oh wait. Nevermind.

huh... I never pictured you for a Emilio Estevez fan what with the RepoMan and all.

Miller: "You'll find one in every car, you'll see."

It's not the Estevez I like. It's the way the names connect as beers or cars. It's the little bits o' philosophy dribbled through the movie - ever so sarcasticly.

As a kid in high school though, we just thought Otto was rad because he was all punk rock and had awesome punk rock friends. It took many a year before I realized how fun this movie is on a totally different level.

Barry said...

Hey! I thot I tagged ya! how funny! Thanks for making it more interesting

Rev. Brandy said...

I've been tagged!

(clapping)

This is the first time I have ever been tagged, and I am weirdly excited.

Thanks, Zoomy.

Mone said...

Looks like you like Ireland a lot ;)

ZooooM said...

Hello Mone...truth be told...someday Mr. Zoom and I would like to relocate there altogether. I love the rain. Plus, the place holds most of my fondest memories.
