Just For Fun: The List of Fours

This is what happens when I’m up late, and actually decide to leave a comment on a really long blog meme. Who’d have thought I’d be penalized for leaving a comment?

Anyways, here are my answers, in a nicely concise format (unlike Gary’s , which are vastly more entertaining – go read them, but read mine first since you’ll be gone awhile).

1. Four shows that you watch:

– Criminal Minds (seriously, probably my favorite cast of characters on TV right now)
– Castle (Nathan Fillion? Hello…)
– Chuck (No terribly hot guys, but great plot, IMO)
– NCIS (Um, Mark Harmon & Michael Weatherly. ‘Nuff said.)

2. Four things you are passionate about:

– Writing
– Hating mornings
– Time to myself
– Personal responsibility

3. Four phrases you say a lot:

– “Groovy.”
– “That’s cool.”
– “Alrighty then.”
– “That’s crazy!”

Apparently I was born in the wrong decade…

4. Four things you’ve learned from the past:

– A professional attitude and demeanor goes a long way, regardless of personal feelings.
– Work with your natural inclinations, rather than fighting them to make a change.
– If you want to accomplish something, don’t just wait for it to happen. Make it happen.
– The only emotions you can control are your own. Don’t let other people’s attitudes get you down.

5. Four places you would like to go:

– Universal Studios
– Several countries I haven’t been to
– Somewhere down south (I’ve never been in the southern states).
– The Pacific Northwest (never been there either)

6. Four things you did yesterday:

– Finished formatting Desert Heat for print
– Updated a few web sites at the day job
– Took down the Christmas decorations
– Finished off leftover cheesecake

7. Four things you are looking forward to:

– Working full-time as a writer
– Sleeping in this weekend (and every weekend)
– Getting the siding replaced on our house (we have metal siding that’s peeling badly right now)
– Our annual Halloween Party.

8. Four things you love about winter:

– Snow (not cold, just snow)
– Hot chocolate
– Chili
– No yard work

9. Four bloggers who should share their list of fours:

I’m not sure who’s already done this…so I’ll just be opposite of Gary, and say if you read this and *don’t* leave a comment, consider yourself tagged.

    Brilliant post. And another person whose vocabulary has been irrevocably altered by The Evil Dead steps forward… 😀

    Thanks. 😉 And indeed. LOL

    But…I lied. Twice (unintentionally, but still). Anyone who hangs out with me on FB/Twitter will be able to spot the lies – first person to comment and tell me what they are gets a free digital copy of one of my books… 😉

    Fun list of fours. I love the winter list. No idea what the lies are, but that’s a fun contest.

    I enjoyed your ‘fours’, and Gary’s too. 🙂

    What did you lie about . . . Hmm. Let me take a stab at it. I’m going to say under #6 you didn’t finish the cheesecake yesterday, you finished it after midnight which technically made it today. And you were probably taking down the Christmas decorations then too.

    How’d I do? 😀

  5. Jamie DeBree

    Thanks for stopping in, Tara! We’ve got a bunch more snow flying today…wow…

    Carol, you are wise and know me well. 🙂 We actually finished the cheesecake just last night, and my decorations are coming down *tonight*. So 2 for 2…I’ll email ya. 😉
