Three Things Meme


I have surreptitiously (or not, since I'm confessing and all) stolen this meme from FlyAwayFamily.

Three…

… places I’ve visited: Texel, The Netherlands; Marshall, Minnesota; Newcastle, England.

… cars I’ve owned: '96 Ford Taurus, '90 Subaru Mini Jumbo, 2006 Chevrolet Kalos (technically the last two are Martijn's, but I am a passenger).

… foods I love: Jello, bananas, chickpeas

… jobs I’ve held: retail monkey at RadioShack, sales support for Qwest, sales consultant for hpshopping.com

… authors I love: Clive Cussler, C. S. Forrester (though I'm a bit put out that he died before he finished the Hornblower series!), Elizabeth Peters (the Ameila Peabody series is absolutely hysterical)

… places I’ve lived: Layton, Utah; Rifle, Colorado; Eindhoven, The Netherlands

… favorite hobbies: crochet (I am trying to practice with yarn again instead of wire, but it's so floppy!), blogging & taking pictures, cycling

… bones I’ve broken: Luckily I haven't broken three bones, just one- the outer bone on my left foot.

… TV shows I watch: NCIS, Bones, Ghost Whisperer

… songs that make me turn up the volume (and dance in my chair!): Canned Heat by Jamiroquai (yes, the Napoleon Dynamite song), This is How a Heart Breaks by Rob Thomas, Stayin Alive by the Bee Gees (DON'T JUDGE ME!)

… favorite drinks: Diet Coke, Diet Coke, Diet Coke (I should probably found a Diet Coke Addicts Anonymous group)

… fun board games: Scrabble, Quiddler, Scattergories

… stores I could spend a whole day in: IKEA (sometimes we go there for breakfast and are still there when it's lunchtime), the Smitje (an awesome haberdashery shop here), Hobby Lobby (how I miss you!)

… chores I put off as long as possible: Only three?! Laundry (mostly the putting away of, I don't know what my objection to that is... I've already done all the hard parts), scrubbing the stove top, cleaning the bathroom (I put this off so long that I never do it! I love my husband)

… chores I kind of like: cooking, watering the plants (when I remember, I'm so awful), changing the sheets

… things I would rather chew glass than do: talk on the telephone in Dutch (heel moelijk, though strangely, chewing and gargling the glass might help with certain pronunciations), ride in the elevator with a certain rude neighbor and his very stinky dogs, head to head confrontations

… reasons I hate attending parties: I have no answers for this one so I'm going to pretend I didn't see it!

… favorite dog breeds: I like the ones that are actually cats instead of dogs!

… things I just don’t get: nasty rude people who seem to have nothing better to do than to try to make others miserable too, Martijn's job (I think he's really a magician, things he does with computers can't happen naturally), how the wind manages to shift directions so that I'm always trying to go against it (I swear, there is some sort of conspiracy against me here)


If you decide to do this, let me know, I'd love to read your answers!

Great list! My husband is a computer magician too! My Dad says that my husband sprinkles "foo foo" dust on their computer to make it work again since he has no clue how he does it. Ha!

I'm glad you commented on my blog so I found yours! Going to look around now. :)

I *heart* Elizabeth Peters too! So much so that I named my daughter after Miss Peabody, not Miss Earhart, like everyone assumes. Proof of this is that her nickname is Lia, not Millie or Mia :)

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!!!
I love this idea-what a great way for people to get to know you better highlighting things that we would never spontaneously tell about.
And if you find that Diet Coke group, let me know!

The diet Coke thing cracked me up. Fun to read!
Happy SITS Sharefest
