I mustache you

And no…. Mo-vember is finished. My sweet bloggy friend Kelly from Happily Ever Mock  has nominated me to answer a few questions. Thanks Kelly!

Four names that people call me, other than my real name.
Weird but no one really shortens my name or calls me anything too much different
  • Mommy- My favourite :-). I will be sad when that changes to Mom.
  • Sarits- D usually calls me that-- and a few other friends.
  • S- I usually sign my emails 'S-' so I've found a couple of my friends calling me/texting me saying 'S'
  • Sweetie- my grandma still calls me that. She has little nick names for each of her grandkids. She also calls me Queen Victoria- I dunno, maybe I was high fallutin' as a kid?!

Four jobs that I have had:
A total mishmash but here you go.
  • My last job in the corporate world was as a Brand Manager for Energizer-- the battery and bunny people.
  • I was a cashier and a sales clerk at a book store in Trinidad. So much fun but such hard work.
  • My first job after my undergrad was as a Management Trainee and then Trade Marketing Executive at Witco. I have so many fond memories of this stage in my life. 
  • I worked as a Front Desk person/Office personnel for Toyota while in university. Another fun gig.

Four movies I have watched more than once:
Only 4?! I'll focus on holiday movies.
  • The Holiday---- love these actors and the modern day feel of this movie but the story line as well.
  • Love Actually- one of my all time faves--- love the story line with the Prime Minister most 
  • The Family Stone- a different one but very well acted and not totally traditional
  • The Sound of Music--- growing up, we watched this every holiday season and now that we have our own family, I bought the DVD for D one Christmas and we've begun to do the same

Four places I have lived:
  • London, Canada for 2 years when I was doing my MBA-- people used to get so confused and thought I was in London, England. 
  • Palmiste, Trinidad from 11 onwards.
  • St Augustine, Trinidad (from 18-22 roughly)during university and when I started working.
  • Ontario- now!

Four places I have been:
  • Italy still remains the best vacation we've ever taken!
  • Dnipropetrovk, Ukraine- (try saying it, I dare ya')I taught there for a month during my MBA. 
  • Ekaterinburg, Russia-- unofficially known as Siberia. Also taught there. Two very cultural experiences.
  • Malaysia (last year)- You can read about our adventures here.

Four places I would rather be right now:
  • Italy (obv)
  • Greece
  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Turks and Caicos- The Beaches Resort to be exact. It would be our third time. We love that place.

Four things I won't eat:
  • Beef
  • Corn Syrup-well I really, really try to avoid it.
  • Bologna
  • Weird stuff like rabbit, alligator, frog legs etc.

Four of my favourite foods: Let's be honest--- food's my poison, it's like asking me to choose my favourite child-  but if I had to choose.
  • Is chocolate a food?
  • Thai food
  • Mushroom Risotto
  • King Crab Legs
Four TV shows that I watch: ( I watch way  more than 4)
  • How To Get Away With Murder
  • Dancing with the Stars
  • Parenthood
  • The Good Wife

Four things that I am looking forward to this year:
  • A close family member is moving up to Canada for a bit hopefully- so, so excited.
  • Cassia's birthday! She's so excited about it, it's infectious! 
  • March Break plans.
  • A close friend is having a baby!!! Exciting again!

Four things I am always saying:
  • "no, no, no"- I think I say that as I don't know where else A gets it from. 
  • "I want a kiss"- (not to random people, to my girls)
  • "I'm soooo tired!"
  • "Cass, you need to practice your violin." - Insert 'do your reading, writing, math' here. 

Four (awesome) people I ask to join along in the Q&A's
Kaitlin at Little Goodies

And in case you wanted to see the cutest little leopard evah'

Linking up with Annie and Nat for Thoughts on Thursday.

  1. I love reading these types of surveys! They remind me of the ones people used to fill out on aol and MySpace back in the day. P.S.: I love The FAmily Stone too!

  2. Love this! You have traveled to so many places! And to have taught at some of those places...Russia, wow! I don't eat beef, and I would also consider chocolate a food group. So much fun :)

  3. Such a fun post. You have lived and been to some amazing places! Would definitely rather be at any of the places you listed.

  4. Such a fun idea!!!! Would LOVE to go to Turks and Caicos ... especially right about now when it's FREEZING here! :)

  5. Your list of places you have lived and visited has me green with envy. VERY cool!

  6. Thanks for nominating me!

    So many great Q/A's here. I love finding out random facts bout my favorite bloggers.

    I LOVE Love Actually and the Holiday, they're both on my must-watch list this month. And I worked for a bookstore too during college. One of the most fun jobs ever, with the best co-workers ever. Too bad it didn't pay much, or I'd have stayed forever. But maybe I should save this all for my Q/A ;)


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
