I've read so many "tags" on friend's blogs, but have never been tagged until now. And admittedly, I wasn't even specifically tagged this time - but I'll take it. The clincher was that if I was reading it, I was to consider myself "tagged". And I thought this was a fun list, so thanks to Nicki who was tagged by Crystal, and here goes:

Jobs I've Had:
Babysitter (And WOW I can't believe just how much! Not anymore, thanks. That's my job 24/7 now! :))

Movies I can watch OVER and OVER again:
This is a hard one for me. I love movies and have so many favorites. The ones that come to mind first that I can watch over and over are some of my Christmas favorites:
Holiday Inn (with Bing Crosby and Fred Estaire)
White Christmas (with Bing Crosby and Danny K)
Home Alone I & II

Places I've been on Vacation:
Disney World's Epcot Center
Myrtle Beach
Disneyland Paris
Cannon Beach, Oregon (two times and I love it! Can't wait to go again!)

Favorite Foods:
Bundt Cake (this isn't just your standard bundt cake of any flavor either. It has chocolate chips, sour cream, vanilla pudding, and baking chocolate all added to a yellow cake mix. YUMMY.)
Fried Chicken
Stromboli (like a calzone, but you put the sauce on top after it's done cooking if you want the sauce)
BREAD (I could eat a whole loaf myself! But it has to be the yummy REAL artisan's type bread. None of that Wonder bread type stuff, no thank you.)
and of course...chocolate is a guilty pleasure for me but it's food too! (Can I count it as dairy??)

Websites I visit Daily:
my email
library (practically daily....there's just always something else I think of to look up...)

First Kiss Location:
Adam & Jason's room...yeah, don't ask. Well, I'll just say, I was only FIVE so I'm not sure it counts! I think the reason it sticks in my memory is that my mom and Cindy caught us and we were in trouble. It must've felt like BIG trouble even if it wasn't for me to remember it still.

Here's a better "first kiss": at the bottom of the stairs in our Erbaut (Belgium) house. AND, Eric didn't even ask! If he had, I would have said NO, surprisingly enough. :) I was in an ice-blocking accident (yeah, you read that right...if you don't know the story, you'll have to hear it sometime) and had a brace over a few of my front teeth and felt really awkward about kissing...especially a first kiss! (And no it was not and would not have been open-mouth....I just had a very romantic image of our first kiss that did NOT include a brace on my teeth!)

Places I'd Rather Be Right Now:
Sitting at the table or on the couch reading The Positronic Man or The Time Traveler's Wife
Reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for the FIRST time (Oh how I wish that were possible, to have more than one first-read. I'd love to live those firsts over again with books I love! But I'll savor it and enjoy it the second time around too, I know.)

Places I HAVE to be right now:
Picking up Autumn from school! So: Adios, Sayanora, Ciao, Ta-ta, Toodles!
