Four Things Meme

I saw this meme over at Fizzy Thoughts, and I figured it might be a good thing to do to fill some of my June while I am gone.  Back when I first started blogging, I did memes all the time, but I couldn't even tell you the last time I've done one.  So this is for old time's sake.

Four jobs I've had in my life:
1.  Corn detassler
2.  Bank teller
3.  Internal auditor
4.  CPA



Four books I would read over and over:
1.  Post-Birthday World - Lionel Shriver
2.  To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
3.  Outlaw - Warren Kiefer
4.  Fingersmith - Sarah Waters


Four places I have lived:

1.  Attica, Indiana
2.  Muncie, Indiana
3.  Fort Wayne, Indiana
4.  Orlando, Florida


Four books I would recommend (that I've read in 2011):
1.  A Visit From the Goon Squad - Jennifer Egan
2.  Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter - Tom Franklin
3.  The Pursuit of Happiness - Maira Kalman 
4.  This Is Where I Leave You - Jonathan Tropper 



Four places I have been:
1.  Berlin, Germany
2.  Nice, France
3.  London, England
4.  Auschwitz, Poland


Four of my favorite foods:
1.  Risotto
2.  Pizza
3.  Dover sole
4.  Steak


Four of my favorite drinks:
1.  Wine
2.  Diet Coke
3.  Green tea
4.  Anything my husband mixes from the bar


Four places I would rather be right now:
1.  At the beach (reading)
2.  On a hike somewhere with cool weather

3.  At a spa
4.  At an amusement park, riding roller coasters


Four things that are very special in my life:
1.  My family
2.  My friends
3.  My pets
4.  My books


Four bloggers I hope will do this meme: 

Everyone that wants to!  It is fun to do these once in awhile!

Wow, corn detassler! I never thought about there having to be one, but I guess there does!

I have a friend who was a corn detassler as well, and was trying to get her daughter a job doing that this summer. She found out it's all being done by machines now. Great meme, Sandy!

Corn detassler implies the existence of corn tassler! ;-)

I just finished Goon Squad. I loved it. I'm going to read it again this weekend.

I love the list of your jobs!! "One of these things is not like the other..."

I think I'll do this. It does seem like fun.

Don't know that I could brave Auschwitz. Good for you.

I will take note of the four books you've recommended. I hope to visit Poland someday too.

This is a great meme. I love how you listed Wine as your #1 choice under drinks! I would do the same.
