Normally, if someone told me I had a mustache, I would be offended. However, when the hilarious Kelly L. McKenzie tagged me to play “I Mustache You Some Questions”, I felt honored, not furry-lipped.
Kelly asked me 12 questions that I must answer honestly. You’ll see I’ve taken some liberty with the number of answers I give. Whatevs. Then I tag four other bloggers and hope they’ll play along and answer the same questions.
Like any good game show, there’s even a BONUS question to watch for!
1. Four names people call me other than my real name
Katy. Ha! Katy is not my real name, it’s a nickname for Kathryn.
Katrine (rhymes with “latrine”). While living in Canada, a French-Canadian professor pronounced Kathryn as “Katrine” while I walked across the stage to receive my Master’s degree. My family thought it was hilarious and hasn’t stopped calling me Katrine since.
Katy the cleaning lady, from an old commercial in the 70s and 80s.
Big Mack because I’m tall and my maiden name was Mack.
2. Four jobs I’ve had
Chicken ripper*, Secretary, Childcare teacher, Researcher
*As for ripping chickens, I used to stand in the line of an outdoor BBQ buffet. When customers came through the line, I asked “White or dark meat?” Then I picked up a hot, BBQ’d half of a chicken and ripped down the middle, dividing the breast/wing from the leg/thigh. Then I handed the customer their white or dark meat selection. I wore double pairs of industrial cloth gloves, too, but I could still feel the burning!
3. Four movies I have watched more than once
Adventures in Babysitting, Can’t Buy Me Love, Sleepless in Seattle, and While You Were Sleeping
4. Four books I would recommend
The Bible and any humorous cozy mysteries by Elaine Viets or Jenn McKinlay
5. Four places I have lived
California, Arizona, Maryland, North Carolina, Michigan, British Columbia, Canada and New South Wales, Australia (I just felt like listing them all.)
6. Four places I have been
I’ve been to all 50 states. All of those, except Hawaii, were visited in a motorhome during my childhood. That’s part awesome, part tragic.
7. Four places I would rather be right now
Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, the beach, Disney World, asleep
8. Four things I don’t eat
Lima beans. The end.
9. Four of my favorite foods
Pizza, Almond Joy, Smoothies, anything I don’t have to cook
10. Four television shows that I watch
The Middle, Call the Midwife, Expedition Unknown, and Last Man Standing
11. Four things that I’m looking forward to this year
Planning my vacation, going on my vacation, summer weather, and a probable return to Disney World next winter
12. Four things I’m always saying
“And why is the carpet all wet, Todd? I don’t know, Margo!”
“Stop hurting your sister.”
“Stop hurting your brother.”
“Have you done your homework?”
And now for the Bonus Question (to fit in with this week’s Finish the Sentence Friday prompt!):
Four things I’d do/think when it comes to the end of the world
That was quick.
At least I know where I’m going now.
Stop hurting your sister.
Stop hurting your brother.
Readers, I’d love it if you picked one question to answer in the comments. Let’s get to know each other!
