4 Things...

Tagged by dear brother Bill. Normally, I don't end up doing these things but seeing as just about all my friends who have a blog have done it,( Bon , Hal , Aleta , Suzer , Leemer , Katy , Amy ) I have surrendered to the tag.

Four jobs you've had in your life:
When I was 15 my first job was as a maid at a string of hotels in Laguna Beach. Great job for a 15 year old. Job done by 1pm, beach the rest of the day! Yay! Private Duty Nurse (taking care of old people), Manicurist (doing old peoples nails), Bartender (helping old people get older ;)).

Four movies you could watch over and over:
Steel Magnolias ("Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.", "I would rather have 30 minutes of wonderful, than a lifetime of nothing special.", "That which does not kill us makes us stronger."

Arthur ("I race cars, I play tennis, I fondle women, but! I have weekends off and I am my own boss!", "I take it this bum will be calling you?" "Dad, he's a millioniare." "You have my permission to marry him.", "In anticipating your condition, I've taken the liberty of bringing you coffee, orange juice and aspirin. Or, do you wish to throw up?")

Always ("He's too beautiful. He's too much twisted steel and sex appeal. I can't be with a guy that looks like I won him in a raffle.", "I know now, that the love we hold back is the only pain that follows us here.")

A Knight's Tale ("It's a small target Will, but aim for his heart.", [singing] "He's blond, he's pissed, he'll see you in the lists, Lichtenstein!", "You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. Come back when you're worthy.", [singing] "He's quick, he's funny, he makes me lots of money, Lichtenstein! Lichtenstein!"

Four places you've lived:
Besides here in California?

Four TV shows you love to watch:
Desperate Housewives (Felicity Huffman is a Godess! They're ALL Godessess!)
Extreme Makeover-Home Edition
Las Vegas
My name is Earl (Don't you judge me Earl!)

Four places you've been on vacation:
Las Vegas
San Francisco
Grand Canyon

Four websites you visit daily:
Dalt's Gang, IMDb, Somesuch-Whatnot, BonBlogs

Four of your favorite foods:
The Dabney Coleman Steak at Dan Tana's
King Crab

Four places you'd rather be:
In my private cabana poolside at the Four Seasons pool in Las Vegas with my smooooothie and a tiny little umbrella garnish!

Disneyland for the entire day and night with no one but 200 of my closest friends and family!

Glacier Point on the most beautiful crystal clear night with a few friends, my family, a perfect bottle of Cabernet and about a billion stars in the sky.

On a HUGE party boat in the middle of a lake somewhere with all my friends and family. Blaring loud music and barbequeing something delicious!

Four albums you can't live without:
The Band-The Last Waltz, Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits, Ummmm, Bette Midler-The Divine Miss M!, AHHHH! I don't know! Anything classic rock!

Four magazines you read:
Only when they're sitting there. I don't subscribe. Oprah, People, Us, Better Homes and Gardens.

Four cars you've owned:
HA! 1978 Datsun 710 Station Wagon, Chrysler 5th Avenue, Lincoln Continental, Dodge Ram Conversion Van

Four people to do this meme:
Sheesh! They've ALL already done it!

The Meaning of Debra

Came across this quite by accident really. I thought it interesting enough to use as an excuse to post to the ol' blog! Of course the paragraph under Numerology describes me spot on!!!

I also noticed the ranking in popularity for my name has dropped significantly through the years. Perhaps the ol' moniker a victim of those who share it checking out?

Variant of Deborah: Bee. Deborah was the Biblical prophetess who summoned Barak to battle against an army of invaders. After the battle she wrote a victory song which is part of the Book of Judges.

Expression Number 3: People with this name tend to be creative and excellent at expressing themselves. They are drawn to the arts, and often enjoy life immensely. They are often the center of attention, and enjoy careers that put them in the limelight. They tend to become involved in many different activities, and are sometimes reckless with both their energies and with money.

Popularity Ranking From 1990 - 2003 * :
Rank for year 1990 is 469
Rank for year 1991 is 512
Rank for year 1992 is 645

* Rank 1 is the most popular, rank 2 is the next most popular, and so forth.
Rankings are from the top 1000 most popular names.

For the love of God, people!!!

Would you please stop using the phrase, "Happy New Years"!!! It's not a new years it's a new YEAR!!!
