The Power of Four

Wordtryst has tagged me for this meme. It involves answering questions then adding your own question at the end. I deleted one question because I couldn’t think of 4 answers. You’ll have to read her blog to see which one. I won’t tag anyone, but I will ask for 4 volunteers to continue the madness.

Four jobs I've had or currently have in my life:
1. Waitress
2. Sales Analyst
3. Marketing Research Director
4. Executive Assistant

Four countries I've been to:
1. Germany
2. Austria
3. Mexico
4. Haiti

Four places I'd rather be right now:
1. England
2. Scotland
3. Italy
4. France

Four foods I like to eat:
1. Chocolate
2. Hamburgers
3. Pineapple
4. Corn chips

Four books you've just read or are currently reading:
1. The Audacity of Hope
2. Lottery
3. The Penny Tree
4. The Fred Factor

Four words or phrases you would like to see used more often:
1. Holy crap!
2. Can I help you?
3. I’m sorry
4. Thanks

Four reasons for ending a friendship:
1. Deceit
2. Betrayal
3. Abuse
4. Disinterest

My question: Four people you’d like to have dinner with (no family or friends allowed):
1. Oprah
2. George Clooney
3. Bill Gates
4. Hillary Clinton

So, are you up for the challenge?

Thanks for taking up the challenge, anti-wife. I promise I won't tag you again; the blogging meme is new to me, but to people who've played this game before it must get old pretty fast.

Interesting responses. You've been to Haiti? Not the typical Caribbean tourist destination. And I think chocolate should be called a staple from now on. It's on every list I've read so far.

Your question stumped me. I couldn't think of anyone I'd like to have dinner with who isn't family or friend, but there are a few men I'd consider for dinner and dessert:
1. Boris Kadjoe
2. Clive Owen
3. Djimon Hounsou
4. Gael Garcia Bernal, that cutie from Motorcycle Diaries. I'm too old for him, though. *sigh*

Hi, I've been tagged with a couple of these emails lately.

I've had to end a few friendships in the past year due to lack of interest. I was doing all the work. So I stopped calling, and these couple of people never called again. Felt like shit at first, but now I feel much better. I'd rather have people in my life who are worth it. ;-)

I was in Haiti twice for a month each time on work study tours in 76 and 78. It was very different back then. Baby Doc was still in power. Chocolate should be a staple.

Sometimes people just grow apart. It's better to just move on in those circumstances.

Ooo, nice sharing! Can't join in I'm afraid [party pooper] as I can only count up to three.

How was The Audacity of Hope? It's on my list but I haven't gotten to it yet.

I got tagged by this one back on my first blog - though it was four places you've been rather than countries... good thing for me as I've never been out of the states - yes, I'm deprived.

Now, are those four people of any time or do they have to be alive currently?

If it's any person, living or dead, fiction or non, I'd pick:

Jesus Christ - and I think He'd be a lot more fun than most of His followers give Him credit for...

Mark Twain - the quote, "I haven't a particle of confidence in any man with no redeeming petty vices" says it all...

Lucy Ricardo - Lucille Ball was a perfectionist, but her character would be a hell of a lot of fun to liven up the average day.

Jackie Gleason - How Sweet It Is was my favorite biography forever and I'll bet he was a lot of fun to drink with...

I know, with a choice of all of the great minds through history, you'd think I might choose some more brilliant minds... but then, I'd rather have a laugh.

The Anti-Wife said...

Good thing you stopped with three kids then! LOL

Living or dead is fine. Interesting choices.

The Anti-Wife said...

Audacity of Hope is very good. He's a talented and articulate writer.

Bernita said...

If one could pick writers one would like to have dinner with, I was surprised to find my mental picks would be mostly fantasy or SF!

wow, oprah and bill gates? Hmm, interesting. It would be fun to have them over just to be rude to them, and then they'd have to be polite back cuz it was my house and my party and they wouldn't get desert if they left early. And trust me, they'd want my desert!

Bernita & SSS,
I'm fascinated with people who are powerful and influential. I always wonder what they would be like just one on one or in a very small group. We have ideas based on what we see on TV or read in the media, but I want to reach my own conclusions based on personal experience. I want to know who they are outside the limelight.
