Okay, the Yarn Geek tagged KOL as a whole, so that includes me. Here we go, more useless information about me than you ever wanted to know...

Four jobs I’ve had:

* Scanning Electron Microscopist
* Librarian

Four movies I can watch over and over:

* Local Hero
* Star Wars (Episode 4, the real first episode, Luke and Leia and Han, not that new crap)

Four places I have lived:

* Believe it or not, that's all I can come up with!

Four bloggers I am tagging:

LOVE Red Dwarf!!!

Alison said...

They just released to complete Red Dwarf, all 7 series, on 18 DVDs. And it'll only cost you about $250!

I can't think of Haiti without envisioning you falling off a moving vehicle.

Alison said...

That's funny! I had forgotten telling that story!

Lesley said...

Hey, what's Scotland like? Always been curious about it, but never really got around to getting there.

Alison said...

I love Scotland. It still feels like home, even though I haven't lived there for years and years. It just feels right. I like the landscape, the geography, the food, the weather, and the people. I'll always be Scottish, even when I'm old and gray, and have spent most of my life in Canada.

I live for Local Hero!!! In highschool I had a secret plan to move to Pennan into a tiny yellow house (i have the photo somewhere) and support myself making baked goods for the inn, and one day my favorite rockstar would come down the hill into the town and not be able to get back up again (its very steep) and we would spend the rest of our days watching for mermaids, oil deposits, and eating cullen skink soup. (to quote colin and justin, "it makes me feel pleasured in the most unlikely of places"!) ps did you know they moved the phonebooth?
