100th post!

Yay! It's my 100th post. I have a few administrative tasks to take care of this evening. First, if you liked my recipe for cinnamon roll gnocci, please go vote for it. It was a part of the Hay Hay Donna Day contest and you can see the round up of entries and vote here.

Another thing to take care of is that I was tagged by David Hall at Book the Cook. You tag four people to reveal five points of interest with four answers. I can't remember who all has been tagged, but I would like to tag the folks at A Couple of Cooks, Crazy Curry and VeggieGirl.

Four jobs I've had:

1. Dishwasher/hostess at an Irish eatery and pub where my parents have a summer home. I rode my bike, worked ridiculous hours and got paid $3 per hour in cash under the table. I was exhausted and lost my appetite.

2. Cashier, JoAnn Fabrics. For three years, I cut fabric, stocked shelves and took people's money. I could only sew for about two of those years.

3. Copy girl for a patent attorney. I interned for a couple of summers for an attorney in an engineering firm. They treated me really well and I can't say anything but nice things about it, but I mostly made copies, scanned things and did general administrative tasks.

4. Reporting intern. I've covered murder trials, a major health care scandal and some cute features that people seemed to like. My specialties have been: night cops, circuit courts, business, medical, science, gender-specific health and next, politics.

Places I've lived:

1. North Carolina -- I was born in a county where you couldn't buy alcohol

2. Round Rock, Texas -- This was before Dell moved to town. Nice place

3. Buffalo, New York -- We were only there for nine months and all I remember was that it was super cold.

4. Dominican Republic -- We lived there for two years and I could write a book about it

Places I've been on holiday:

1. London -- Cool city, expensive food

2. Egypt -- I spent a month studying at the American University in Cairo. It's an amazing place, everyone should go and see it once

3. Slovenia -- What a beautiful city! The people are so friendly and it's a great place for younger people to go out. I hear there are great resorts there too

4. Belize -- I went on a cruise with my family and this was my favorite spot. We saw ruins and had cashew wine

Four of my favorite foods:
1. Chocolate, any form and I'll be there

2. Sushi -- I just discovered sushi recently and can't get enough of it

3. Tomatoes -- salsa, caprese salads, stuffed tomatoes, I'm all about it

4. Breads -- I am so glad this low-carb thing has passed because I'm a carboholic

Four places I would rather be right now:

1. Home! I miss my family, boyfriend and friends

2. Ireland -- I've never been, but I'd like to see the land of my ancestors

3. A chocolate factory -- lock me in alone and I'd consider it a gift!

4. Italy -- Again, I've never been, but I wouldn't mind eating my way through the countryside

I had the $8 chocolate buffet at the Sofitel in Saigon and lemme just say, after a while, you can get sick of chocolate.

Psst. Slovenia is a country, not a city.

Shammi said...

Oh, I would definitely recommend a visit to Ireland - I presume you mean the Republic of, not Northern Ireland :)I just LURVE everything to do with the Irish and Ireland. Such gorgeous music/dance and such friendly people and what a lovely sense of humour...! I could keep drivelling on in this vein but I wont :) Just allow me to repeat - Ireland is DEFINITELY worth repeated visits!

I've been to Ireland which is also the land of my ancestors.

I recommend you go one day!

When I saw those rolling-green hills from the sky... it was an overwhelming moment!
