Hello everyone. I've been tagged by Lynn of Kearnal's Korner
and thought I'd post my answers to this list of questions now,
before I have to go make dinner. Warning: the following
post may put you to sleep if read while sitting down in a
comfortable chair.

Four jobs that I've had:

Stock taker at Canadian Tire
Cashier at Beaver Lumber
Bank teller at Bank of Montreal
Multiple positions at CIBC

Amendment: Very first job I had was year end stock
taking at a Canadian Tire. A friend who already worked
there got me the day long job. I was 15. We worked for 12 hours
straight...counting everything from nails and screws
to lengths of piping and all manner of hardware
in between. Finally, filthy and exhausted we finished off
and headed home.

Two hours later my friend phoned me at home and
told me the store was on fire!! It was gutted.
All that work for nothing!!! My first job. I really
set the place on fire.....ouch!! Sorry. Moving on....

Four movies that I watch over and over:

The Lord of the Rings trilogy
Twister
Jaws
Independence Day

Four places that I've been:

Alaska
England
British Columbia
Florida

Four places I have lived:

Toronto
Georgetown
that's it.....

Four tv shows that I watch:

I love and adore home improvement
and decorating shows.
Moonlight
Lost
Ummmm.....Don't watch much tv now.

How about four shows that I'll always love but
aren't on anymore:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Angel
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Bewitched

Four people who email me regularly:

My SIL
Darlene
Bobbie at Stitching Bit's n Bobs (What can I say?
I order from them a lot.....sheepish grin)
Charmaine

Four favourite foods:

Chocolate
Pizza
Chinese food
Chicken

Four places I would rather be:

England or anywhere in Great Britain
British Columbia
The East Coast - Newfoundland or Nova Scotia
Europe

Four things I look forward to:

The next Harry Potter movie
The new releases from Nashville
Retiring - preferably after winning the lottery....soon!
Spring

Four people to tag....Um, let's see.....

Sandra - Sampler Lover's Blog
Michelle - Cozy Egg

Okay everybody, that's it....wake up!!
We're done here. You can go now.

Cheers!!!

Sorry I didn't get back to you about your question but I didn't have your email :o( Yes, the mittens were done on 14 count plastic canvas and then felt was glued to the back to cover the mess ;o)

Fun entry. How frustrating to have had the place catch on fire. However, with the inventory they had a great record for insurance as long as they backed the information up, so not a total loss.

I love Independence Day and the Lord of the Rings too. Did you see where Peter Jackson got permission to film the Hobbit? He's going to do it in the same area he did LOTR, so it will have a consistent feel. That's one movie (in addition the remaining Harry Potter's) that I can't wait to see.
