I Mustache You a Question Tag

I was excited to see that Ashley over at Chronicles had tagged me in this fun post!  I'm in a big Poirot reading phase right now so I'm loving the mustache plus mustache puns make me giggle.  I originally meant to have this up on Tuesday but somehow that turned into Saturday!

Four names people call me other than my real name
1. Mom
2. Mrs. P
3. X's Mom (depending on which kid's friend it is)
4. Coach (I coached Emma's soccer team for years.  I'm not good at soccer but I'm seriously competitive)

Four Jobs I've Had
1. Gift Shop Worker at a local museum
2. Bookkeeper at the same museum
3. Runner for a legal firm
4. Systems Analyst for a defense contractor

Four Movies I Would/Have Watched More Than Once
1. Grosse Pointe Blank
2. Princess Bride
3. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
4. Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken (This was a Disney movie that came out in 91 about a girl who wanted to dive horses in a travelling act.  I watched this so many times that even though I haven't seen it in 20 years I can still quote it!)

Four Books I'd Recommend
1. The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
2. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
3. The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs
4. The Tastemakers by David Sax

Four Places I've Been
1. New Orleans
2. New York
3. Key West
4. Washington, D.C.

Four Places I'd Rather Be
1. Ireland (anywhere)
2. England (anywhere)
3. Key West (I'm cold)
4. The Chattanooga Aquarium where we've been meaning to take The Tornado.  I think he'd love it!

Four Things I Don't Eat
1.Goat Cheese (because I'm allergic and got badly allergic about 4 years ago.  I love the stuff but can't eat it)
2. Shrimp (ditto goat cheese)
3. Mushrooms (because they're squishy though I don't mind the actual flavor)
4. Olives (because they're yucky to borrow my 5 year old's terminology)

Four of my Favorite Foods:
1. Cheeseburgers
2. Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
3. Butternut Squash Ravioli
4. Creme Brulee

Four TV Shows That I Watch
1. NCIS and all the off-shoots
2. Doctor Who
3. Stalker
4. The Big Bang Theory

Four Things I'm Looking Forward to This Year (2015)
1. Emma's graduation (though that makes me a little sad too)
2. Paul getting his driver's license so I'm officially done driving the older group around
3. Going to The Sing Off concert next month because I love the show and can't wait to see some of the acts in person
4. Switching bedrooms around which I think may give me more room for books!

Four Things I'm Always Saying
1. "Are you serious?"  Between the teenagers and the Tornado this comes up a lot!
2. "You don't have to say everything that comes into your head."  Ditto above
3.  "No part of me wants to know." This is normally said to teenagers
4.  "Text when you get there and be careful" pretty much anytime any of the teenagers leave the house.

Four People I Tag:


  1. I'm a huge Dr Who fan, and the Big bang theory too ! And I'll soon be watching Stalker. I've been to Ireland and England, such fabulous countries ! It's a fun tag with a wonderful mustache :)

  2. Ha, I love this tag. I would definitely rather be in England or Ireland right now too! And The Big Bang Theory is a lovely show. I haven't watched the newest season though, am very much looking forward to that.

  3. Great list. Isn't this a fun post? Adds a personal touch to let our readers and fellow bloggers get to know one another better. Thanks for participating. I'm adding Murder on the Orient Express to my TBR list. I have a classic month coming up in my Stretch Your Imagination Challenge. Might be just the right choice.

  4. Such a fun post - and I learned so much about you in the process!

  5. LOL I would so go to Ireland or Key West right now too. I'm done with the cold. lol Bummer on being allergic to a food you love. That stinks!

  6. So fun to learn more about you, Katherine! I love the things you always say. I don't say the first three too much anymore since we have an empty nest, but I still ask my kids to text me when they're going someplace. And when they arrive!

  7. I wouldn't have believed this was you without seeing crime brûlée. Also I'm not sure gift shop worker and bookkeeper are descriptive enough.

  8. These are such fun posts and so nice to learn more about you. I will happily eat your olives (black, not green) and your mushrooms (cooked, not raw). :D

    Like you, I'm done with the cold. Book con in Key West! NOW! :P

  9. What fun! The Hiding Place is really good, isn't it? And I won't eat shrimp either. Thank you for the link. I look forward to filling in the blanks!

  10. Love this, great fun and good to read your film and tv and food likes as well as book recommendations!

  11. Eeep! So behind in my blog reading so glad I caught this. :) And OMG Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken!! I totally forgot about that movie. Loved it when I was younger.
