Happy T’Giving…and You Might Learn Something New About Me!

Ken and I started our Thanksgiving the best way – by doing a double date 10 mile trail run with our friends, Tom and Joie (sorry, for whatever reason I have no pictures of them. Maybe they are my imaginary friends because I don’t have any friends).

It was windy and the trails were very icy and snow packed in places, but I couldn’t have been happier.

So, I stole this off of HRG’s blog, but I thought it was  fun little survey. I love these because I always learn things about other people I didn't know.

Four names that people call me other than my real name:

1. Hon (Ken calls me this always. I hate it when he calls me “Beth.” I feel like I’m in trouble).

2. Mommy (my 17 year old calls me this when he needs something).

3. Bitch (other drivers on the road call me this)

4. Bethie (best friend Erika calls me this)

Four jobs I’ve had:

1.  Cashier – 7-11 (don’t be jealous. It’s really fun to come home smelling like a big bite)

2.  Black Jack dealer (perhaps the coolest job I’ve ever had)

3.  Waitress (too many times to count)

4. House cleaner

Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

1.  Forrest Gump

2.  Airplane

3. Christmas Vacation

4.  Christmas Shoe

Four books I’d recommend:

1.  Gap Creek

2.  Finding Ultra

3.  The Tender Bar

4.  Power of Now

Four places I’ve lived:

1. Chicago, IL (I was born there. Lived there until I was 5)

2. Athens, Greece

3. Paris (France, not Texas)

4. Columbia, MD

Four places I’ve visited:

1. Costa Rica

2. Loch Ness (northern part of Scotland where the monster is)

3. Jerusalem

4. Istanbul 

Four things I prefer not to eat:

1. Dog food  

2. Dog poop

3. Jelly donuts

4.  Bleach

Four of my favorite foods:

1.  My mom’s chicken and dumplings

2.  Avocados

3.  Chipotle bowl

4. Eggs Benedict

Four TV shows I watch

1.  Biggest Loser

2.  True Detective

3.  Walking Dead

4.  Survivor

Four things I’m looking forward to this year:

1.  Christmas with Antoni, our exchange student

2.  Doing my first ultra (maybe?)

3.  Teaching a parenting class at the YWCA

4.  Playing Cards Against Humanity because I never have

Four things I’m always saying:

1.  I farted

2.  I’m cold

3. At the end of the day…(just kidding, I hate that expression)

4.  Please put your damn dishes in the dishwasher

 

Your turn. Consider yourself tagged and let me know a bit more about you (in the comments or leave a link to your blog post).

Have an incredible Thanksgiving!

She clearly had too much turkey. Why can't dogs pace themselves?

  2. I also love Gap Creek. In fact, I JUST finished The Road From Gap Creek. Not as good, but still liked it.

  3. If she didn't barf, she paced herself. Heidi!!
    I have delusions of being a novelist. NaNoWriMo is just the first step.

  4. Born and partially raised in Chicago? That explains a lot. In a good way. You've got that down to earth midwesterness about you....

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Don't worry, Heidi, I feel the same ;)
    I've never seen Forrest Gump - I feel like that's a crime! Also, I laughed out loud when I saw your nickname given to you by other drivers.

  6. Beautiful pictures of your run and giant hamstring. Surprisingly we don't share any nicknames. People on the road usually just sigh and lay their heads on the steering wheel, disappointed in society for only ever giving me one practical (well, since I passed).

  13. I can totally see you as a blackjack dealer! Hey we watch Survivor too! Who are you rooting for this season? Now that Josh is gone, I am rooting for Reed. And Keith, even though he is a mess.

    1. Hmmm..I liked Jeremy, sorry he was voted out. Yes, I'm thinking Reed as well although I'm not too excited about any of them at this point.

  15. I've been enjoying that survey on other blogs - so fun! My old boss use to always say "At the end of the day" and we would totally make fun of her for it!

    Four things people call me:
    1 - E
    2 - ET
    3 - MOOOOMMMMMMMMM
    4 - Hon - I agree with you here - if my hubby calls me "Elena" it's weird!

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love the survey! I'm also dying to play Cards against humanity...it seems like a game I would love.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Played Cards Against Humanity for the first time on Thanksgiving. Hilarious!! For mature audiences only! We played with our grown kids. Had a blast! Definitely not a game for modest people!
