Four Times the Fun

I’ve never been very good about setting trends, but I am pretty good about following them.  Yes, I guess you could say I’m just like a lemming and would follow the pack right off a cliff.  Well, maybe not that far, but I do love to feel included, but don’t we all?  When I was tagged  by Carrie to fill out this popular survey of late, I knew that it was something I could do.  I do enjoy sharing random facts and tidbits, so while you may have seen this floating around out there, I hope I can provide some random fun.  Who knows, maybe you can connect with a few of my answers 🙂

Wait, before I begin, I do want to say that I was one of the first kids (that I was aware of) in junior high to start wearing Vans lace-ups.  I bought them because my dad said the red ones were cool and sure enough, a few weeks later, they were all over campus.  #winning as a 7th grader.

1. Four names that people call me, other than my real name

k-fu
kait
katie-b
K or KK

2. Four jobs I have had:

camp counselor (short lived for one summer)
intern — Hulu & Telemundo & my college athletic department
digital sales representative
professional gift wrapper (6″ ribbon curls…dominated)

3. Four movies I have watched (and can quote oh so much) more than once:

The Pink Panther (with Steve Martin)
Kangaroo Jack
Elf
Pitch Perfect (stoked for the sequel!)

4. Four Books I recommend:

Outliers
The Language of Flowers
The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series
Me Before You

To be honest I love to read but rarely read books more than once.  While I was browsing through countless lists of top books, I saw that William Faulkner’s “As I Lay Dying” was on there.  That I did read in high school and wow, it must have some literary success if it’s on there.  We high schoolers did not think it was so hot.

5. Four places I have lived:
