#MondayMusings #MicroblogMondays - Ten Question Tag - Some Quiz Fun

These quizzes are always good for a chuckle or a grimace, depending on if you like them or not.

I enjoy reading other peoples' answers and learning a bit more about them and of course I enjoy doing them for that narcissistic high I get talking about myself. Hehehe! Just kiddin! 


I like quizzes. Didn't you ever do all those silly quizzes in Tiger Beat and Seventeen when you were a teen? I know I did, even if they were completely silly which they usually were. I occasionally do some on Facebook but some are really silly so I try to limit myself since I waste enough time on Facebook as it is.


Feel free to read or not. If you want to do your own quiz, feel free to do that, too.




Photo Credit to MIPhoto at Morguefile.com. I do have a photo of my orange tabby Kobie draped across my computer from a while ago. I didn't want to spend a lot of time searching for it since all my old photos are in backup files on my other computer which is a pain in the butt. 

This one is very cute!

Drum roll..... Let the quizzie thingie begin.....



FOUR THINGS OTHERS CALL ME OTHER THAN MY NAME
Cat, Cath, Dear, Mom

FOUR JOBS I’VE HAD

* Desktop publisher (kind of a glorified clerk who knows typography and graphic junk), 
* envelope stuffer in the bowels of Place Ville Marie in Montreal, 
* military musician in the air Reserve, 
* opaquer (Painter) of cartoon cells for animated cartoons. (the place went bankrupt and we all got laid off, but I met the hubs there so I did okay)

FOUR MOVIES I HAVE WATCHED MORE THAN ONCE
* Jane Eyre (BBC 2006 version with Toby Stephens as Mr. Rochester. Drools. I'm overdue for a fix when the hubs isn't around as he hates those melodramatic type shows)
* Sound of Music
* Oliver
* Les Miserables

FOUR PLACES I HAVE LIVED
* Gjoa Haven, Nunavut (a tiny town on King William Island in the Arctic Ocean. Talk about remote!!)
* Colorado Springs, Colorado
* Montreal, Quebec
* Portage la Prairie, Manitoba

FOUR PLACES I’VE BEEN
* Devon (A gorgeous part of England on the ocean)
* Rome (So vibrant and full of history)
* New York City (So exciting and too much to see but that’s okay. Gives you a reason to go back!)
* Salzburg, Austria (Saw all the Sound of Music landmarks. What can I say? I love that movie!)

FOUR PLACES I WOULD RATHER BE
* Cape Breton, Nova Scotia (My parents are there and I love being by the ocean and the Bras D’Or Lake. So unspoiled and time stands still there.)
* New Zealand (my friend Lee sure makes it look like paradise where she lives)
* Australia – hope to go there some day and meet some friends. Seems so different and yet so similar to Canada.
* British Columbia – haven’t been back in years since going to the School of Music in Esquimalt. So beautiful there. Maybe I’ll go visit Elly some day.

FOUR THINGS I WILL NOT EAT
* Liver
* Brussel Sprouts
* Don’t like raw onions but they’re okay cooked
* Anything deep fried

FOUR FAVORITE FOODS
* Coffee
* Chocolate
* Chicken
* Cheese

FOUR TV SHOWS I WATCH
Don’t really watch TV since we gave up our satellite dish and now I mostly watch movies. I don’t miss it. Too many dumb reality shows for my liking. I did watch season 1 of “When Calls the Heart” on Netflix. Talk about sweet and sappy overload. I liked it for the most part but it was awfully sweet. You can tell it’s done by Michael Landon Jr keeping on the tradition of his dad who did “Little House on the Prairie” back in the 1970s which I also watched since I loved those books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Wish they had made When Calls the Heart it a bit more Canadian feeling since it was supposedly in a mining town in Alberta based on a book by author Janet Oke. Oh well. Beats the heck out of all the gritty realism of Dexter or the inane stupidity of Trailer Park Boys, two shows my sons have watched. BLEK!


FOUR THINGS I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS YEAR

* A trip to Cape Breton to see my parents and be by the Atlantic Ocean
* A trip to Nashville in the States to meet critique partners. Hope that works out.
* I hope to make money doing creative things online such as my photography and artwork. It still eludes me so far as I don’t know the secret to good marketing techniques. Good thing I’m enjoying the process and I like learning new things. I haven’t given up yet.
* Playing flute and singing with my different musical groups for seniors’ residences and other events. It doesn’t pay much either but I enjoy it and it reaps other rewards. Some things are much more valuable than money.

  1. Thanks for participating, Cathy. I enjoyed learning more about you. ☺ You've had some interesting jobs and travelled to some great places! Whoever said "Do what you love and the money will follow" needs to explain how that works, yes? Promotion is getting harder and harder online, with all the ad blocking programs, plus people generally ignore that stuff anyway. Sigh...

    1. I've never made much money from doing what I love. Guess I'm used to it. I'm not ready to go be a clerk again or do retail or be a commissionaire or anything like that so I guess I'll keep plugging away. I enjoy the process so that has to be its own reward, right, Debbie? Thanks for dropping by and giving me the idea to do the quiz. It was fun.

  2. Oh I love quizzes. And this one was so much fun. You were a military musician - WOW! I'd love to go to Austria too and visit the Sound of Music locales. Sound of Music is a much-watched film for me too. As for Rome it's a dream, isn't it?

    1. Thanks for your comments, Tulika. Much appreciated. So you are a Sound of Music fan, too, eh? Hard to believe it's been 50 years since they made the movie. Still such a fun film with such gorgeous music.

    2. Absolutely! What's more, the kids love the songs. When I overhear my daughter humming Few of My Favourite Things or Doe a Deer it fills me with such happiness.

    1. Yes, that was a pretty low point as far as jobs go, literally since we were in the basement of a tall skyscraper. It was awful but it gave me new respect for junk mail and the poor sods who had to assemble it and put it in envelopes.

  5. Ah, it certainly is great to learn more about you Cat! :) And to learn that we both love Les Mis as I have seen three or four different versions, my two faves being the recent musical with Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman, but my top favourit was the one with Liam Neeson, Geoffrey Rush, and Uma Thurman. (I watched it two nights in a row! First ever time I did that!) ;) Also, Austria feels like my 'second' home and where my Mom was born. ;) And yes, I would love for you to visit BC and me! :) <3

    1. That's fun about you loving Les Miz like I do, Elly. I haven't seen that other version you mentioned but I did enjoy the stage play and the movie with Hugh Jackman. Interesting to learn about your mom being from Austria.

    1. Thanks for dropping by, A.G. You've reminded me I need to start that challenge. I've been on vacation which makes it a bit more difficult to do it since I'm away from everything familiar. Looking around my parents' place, I don't see any of my possessions but I do see the photo books I've made so I'll use them.
