So,I Mustache You Some Questions

Black Dog Runs Disney is a blog I read pretty often. The author, Kimberly is a pretty insightful writer and is obsessed with Wonder Mutt, her dog. (Which is of course, black) She is also very funny. I always thought she was funny in the "hey her blog can be so funny" kind of way. It turns out she is also funny in the "ha ha, I tagged you in one of those chain posts that can be so fun" kind of way.

I had seen some of the blogs I follow doing this and thought it was pretty fun. Didn't think I would be tagged as I have only been tagged only once before for things like these but sure enough, Kimberly sent this one my way. That graphic above by he way, I totally stole it from her. 

OK, so this particular exercise is about answering some questions about yourself and for each you have to give four answers. Here are mine:

Four movies I've watched more than once:

1. Star Wars - Saying I've watched this more that once is like saying "Yeah, My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion has been played on the radio more than once."

2. The Shawshank Redemption 

3. Braveheart

4. The Lord of the Rings - I've actually seen these more than once at the theater as well as at home.

Four Book I'd Recommend:

1. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin - The Game of Thrones saga. If you think the TV series is good...

2. Different Seasons by Stephen King - Stand by Me, The Shawshank Redemption and Apt Pupil were all made from this collection of novellas.

3. The Lord of the Rings - Greatest Fantasy book. Ever.

4. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - My favorite Potter book. Yeah, I'm a big nerd.

Four Places I've Been:

1. Bogotá, Colombia

2. Montreal, Canada

3. Washington DC, United States

4. Cozumel, Mexico

Four Things I Don't Eat: This was hard. I eat most things. LOL

1. Durian - Have you ever smelled those things?

2. Chick Peas - I eat Hummus though.

3. Cured, Salted Cod

4. Pumpkin - Don't ask

Four of my Favorite Foods:

1. Pizza

2. True, Japanese Ramen Noodles - New addition

3. New England Clam Chowder

4. Barbecue

Four TV Shows I Watch:

1. Game of Thrones

2. Friends - Still watch reruns and the DVD's. All the time.

3. Sophia the First - I'd be lying if I told you this wasn't playing in our house constantly, or any of the other Disney Junior shows for that matter.

4. Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

Four Things I'm Looking Forward to This Year:

1. Getting a Road Bike

2. Training for the Goofy Challenge

3. My 10 year wedding anniversary - Which we intend to officially celebrate in 2016 but it is actually in 2015.

4. Doing a Triathlon

Four Things I'm Always Saying:

1. "Stop bothering your sister!" - Or it's many variations.

2. "Yes, I have run a Marathon. Yes, the 26.2 mile one."

3. "I run. Slowly."

4. "Yes, Honey." - Maybe this should be number one...

Four people to pass this on to:

    2. Two of my favorite words...oyster and Boston. I think we are long lost relations. Seriously. :)

  4. Oh I laughed when I saw "Durian". Most people have never heard of it but I knew what it was right away because we talked about it in the nutrition class I taught! I've never heard anyone else talk about it though! -M
