Tag! I'm it!

I've been tagged by Kim at Emergiblog (after some shameless handraising by yours truly--true, true). So, if I understand the rules correctly, I have to provide answers to the following questions, then tag four more lucky bloggers. Here goes:

4 Jobs I Have Had In My Life:

--Counter girl at "Roy Rogers", complete with red hat and cowboy tie. I had to say, "Howdy pardner, may I serve you?" and "Happy trails!" (at least, when the boss was within hearing distance). And you wonder what motivated me to go to nursing school!

--Nursing assistant.

--Registered Nurse.

--Mom. (Mom counts!!! "Because I say so, that's why").

4 Movies I Could Watch Over and Over:

--Fellowship of the Ring.

--The Two Towers.

--The Return of the King.

--um.....are there any other movies?

4 Websites I Visit Regularly:

--Arts & Letters Daily. So far, the best web site for all kinds of artsy/lettery things, different articles by scholars and critics, different viewpoints, different subjects. OK, it's published by the Chronicle of Higher Education but they let regular old ordinary people like me read it, too. And for free, I might add.

--Short Sharp Science. A great blog from a great magazine, full of all the sorts of short sharp science-related reporting that New Scientist is known for.

--Kevin, M.D. I don't know how Dr. Kevin has time to blog all these things, but I admit to reading his blog daily. Often twice a day. I can't always tell what his platform is; I think that's a good thing. Dr. Kevin, please: do not increase your patient load, and risk your blog, OK? Reading Room. All right, look. A girl has to have a hobby. Mine is talking about Tolkien. If you are in any way interested in JRR Tolkien and enjoy talking about him and all sorts of related and interesting tangents, this is by far the best discussion board available. There are more highly knowledgeable contributors and worthwhile posts on this board than any other place on the web (or off the web, for that matter). A virtual Bird and Baby. I say no more.

4 of my Favorite Foods:

--really ripe mangoes

--homemade macaroni and cheese

--steamed Chesapeake Bay blue crabs, heavy on the Old Bay spicing

--my mom's chocolate cake

4 Places I Would Rather Be Right Now:

--Sitting on a porch somewhere in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia.

--In a pub in western Ireland.

--Somewhere the ocean is blue, warm, and placid.

--Middle Earth.

4 Most Wonderful Places I Have Been:

--The Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia.

--Miami Beach.

--The desert of New Mexico at sunset.


4 Books I Could Read Over and Over:

--The Lord of the Rings

--O Pioneers!

--Bleak House

--To Kill a Mockingbird

4 Songs I Could Listen To Everyday:

--She Belongs to Me (Dylan)

--And It Stoned Me (Van Morrison)

--Boulder to Birmingham (Emmylou Harris)

--Long Ride Home (Patti Griffin)

4 Reasons I Blog:

--Because I have experiential knowledge in my field to share.

--Because I like to write.

--Because blogging is more personal than "listserving" or "message boarding".

--Because there are lots of other bloggers I read and I want to feel part of the extended "health care professionals" family while expressing my unique viewpoint.

4 People To Tag:

--Keith at Digital Doorway

--I'm hoping to follow Kim's lead and ask for volunteers! C'mon, it's fun. Raise that hand where I can see it!
