Another Meme - Again
So I am pet sitting at the glamorous Chateau Rossmore and lemme tell you kids, it's better than eating a cheese sandwich. Tivo, big comfy bed, silence…it’s heaven indeed. Makes finding new digs hard though, since the motivation is low...
The only snafu so far was when the pup ate a bunch of chocolates. Alcohol filled chocolates. The chocolates pictured here in fact. I never even got a one. Sigh. Plus, it turns out, chocolate is really, really bad for our canine friends. Who knew. Needless to say, I was in a dither. Happily, after several calls to the vet, he is fine and I am free to share my answers to the Meme of the month, as given to me by that lovely lass, Miss Sarah of The Delicious Life. And just to be fair, the darling Crazy Gaijin from Nihon No Ryori tagged me for another meme (10 things you don’t know about me) which I seem to have neglected, so I will make this a two-fer. Enjoy!
Four Movies I watch over and over:

as for how I got into teaching, I just started doing it for friends, got biz cards, set up a website and BAM, clients came. It was really fun, and a lot of work. In the end though, there wasnt much money to be made (at least, the way I was doing it! LOL) Great as a fun after work gig though!
Thanks for that very interesting read. I love reading about the people whose blogs I read regularly.
One question, though:
how is gotmilk.com not food-related? ;^)
Also, ever heard of a movie called Mostly Martha (a.k.a. 'Bella Marta')?
A must-see for any food person.
Anyway, great job. Can't wait to try the potato-fennel gratin.
And Mr. M - Milk is so much MORE than a food, its a magical elixir!
As for Mostly Martha, it was a superb film, thanks for reminding me!
How is the new job going?
