I've been Tagged!

Thanks to my illustrious illustrator friend Karen Lee I've been tagged. So, here goes...

4 jobs I have had:

- Waitress - Anna Banana's, biker bar with upstairs music joint in Honolulu where I was frequently asked: "What's a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?" hehe
- Hostess - El Crab Catcher Restaurant, Honolulu, HI - Greeting and seating hungry people.
- Production Artist - The Honolulu T-shirt Company, Honolulu, HI - I "lived" in the darkroom.
- Picture Framer - The Nature Company, Berkeley, CA - Used ALL the tools of the trade.

4 movies I could watch over and over:
- A Christmas Story - You know, the story about Ralphie, who wants a BB Gun really baaaaad!
- Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Fantastic storytelling and movie-making. Great soundtrack!
- Mary Poppins - Okay, so I'm a big kid!
- Rivers and Tides - Love watching Andy Goldsworthy's process as an artist. Inspiring!

4 places I have lived:
- Keflavik, Iceland - A magical place to live as a child.
- Honolulu, Hawai'i - With addresses all over Mo'ili'ili!
- Osaka, Japan - This was "home base" during my 7-month dance gig in Japan and Taiwan.
- Oakland, CA - Good 'ol Oaktown. From our apt. we could see Alcatraz Island on a clear day.

4 TV shows I love:
Not into TV, but when I turn on the boob tube, here's what I'll catch:
- Project Runway - I've not missed a season yet! I'm hooked!
- The Daily Show - Yay, Jon! (Stephen Colbert runs a close second!)
- Saturday Night Live - When they have good guests and the skits don't suck.
- What Not To Wear - Leave it to the Brits create a show from fashion-disaster therapy.

4 places I have been for vacation:
- Big Trees State Park in Calavaras County. Love those giant redwoods!
- The island of Hawai'i aka The Big Island. Volcanoes National Park is awesome...
- NYC. Okay, so I tied this vacation in with work but it was a lot of fun!
- Lake Tahoe. Absolutely gorgeous! Get a place with a view of the lake.

4 Websites I visit everyday (not really everyday but, mostly):
- SCBWI Discussion Board
- The Blue Boards (on Verla Kay's site)
- The Huffington Post
- Random writing sites like this one.

4 Favorite Foods:
- Tempura (prawns and veggies) Only the authentic batter and cooking style will do!
- Muligatawny Soup! A savory Indian chicken soup that warms the heart and soothes the tummy. :-)
- Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Cheesecake. Heavenly!
- Lumpia. I learned how to make these festive Filipino spring rolls from my mom!

4 places I would rather be:
- Hanging out on a beach in Hawai'i, no particular island.
- In Reykyavik, Iceland, exploring the quaint village I knew as a child.
- Lake Tahoe. Any season. Love the deep blue lake!
- Anywhere in Polynesia: Cook Islands, Tahiti, New Zealand, etc.
