Getting to know me a little better

As I've said, more and more people have been coming to this blog as of late. However, most of you don't know me, so I thought I'd pass on this meme that was sent to me from an old student of mine, Tyler Wardle. I'm not going to tag anyone else with this, but I thought it might give you a little more insight into who I am.

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. Ice cream scooper
2. Custodian
3. Juvenile Corrections Officer
4. College Professor

Four movies I would watch over and over:
1. That Thing You Do!
2. The Shawshank Redemption
3. The Man From Snowy River
4. The Breakfast Club

Four places I have lived:

2. Tennessee
3. Guatemala
4. Texas

Four TV Shows that I watch:
1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2. Angel
3. Survivor

Four places I have been:

Four people who e-mail me (regularly):
1. Sue Reese (my mom, and surprisingly, she’s not the one that forwarded this to me!)
2. Kay Green (one of my six sisters, who knows better than to forward something like this to me)
3. Susan Stansberry (colleague at work)
4. Jamie Murray (colleague from church)

Four of my favorite foods
1. Chicken Fried Steak
2. Mashed Potatoes with white gravy
3. Green beans (the way Mom makes them with bacon, tomatoes, onions, etc.)
4. green kool-aid

Four places I would rather be right now:
1. golf course
2. fly fishing in Montana
3. Home - with my family
4. teaching my classes

Four things I am looking forward to.

2. Meeting my grandfather I’m named after
3. Growing old with my wife, Lori
4. Seeing my children grow into adulthood and have children of their own

Four of your favorite pets

So there you have it, a little more about me . . .

  1. I just want to clarify that in the entire time I've known John, I've only once sent him anything like this. I don't usually forward this stuff to anyone, but I liked this one, so I thought I'd pass it on.
