I saw this meme on [personal profile] quoththeravyn and thought it looked like fun.

If you want to play, leave a comment and I'll give you an age and you answer these questions about your age.

I was given 23.

I lived in: My parents house. Yes I still lived at home at 23. I have always had a good relationship with my parents so this made sense to me. I had all of the freedom of living in an apartment on my own, but the perks of being at home (no rent, laundry). I was going to medical school and surviving on loans, so being able to save on rent/food really helped me keep my debt manageable.

I drove: A 1994 white Jeep Grand Cherokee. At this point it was very old, but had very low mileage on it.

I was in a relationship with: My husband. We had just started dating for the second time (long story) and would be engaged before I turned 24.

I feared: failing. Medical school was an incredible challenge. I was gearing up to take the first part of the medical boards (there are three parts), and keeping my grades up so I could pursue a competitive residency if I wanted one.

I worked at: La Marina, a seafood restaurant owned by a friend of the family. I had worked their briefly during college, as a busperson and later in the kitchen working the fryers. I wanted some extra cash and had Friday afternoons free, so I worked from 3-9ish in the kitchen taking phone orders and cooking all of the fish fries, clams, shrimp, scallps, french fries, etc for both the dining room and take-out orders. It turned out to be great preparation for working in an operating room.

I wanted to be: At this point, I was still firmly convinced I wanted to do a residency in opthalmology and a cornea fellowship. I was still in lectures at this point, so I hadn't discovered the joy that was anesthesiology yet.

Like several others on my reading page, I'm pretty sure I've done this before, but I'll do it again.

Bold the ones you've read COMPLETELY, italicize the ones you've read part of. Watching the movie or the cartoon doesn't count. Abridged versions don't count either. BTW, according to the BBC if you've read 7 of these, you are above the average.

We've all done this before - I quote a movie, you name the source. This time with a holiday theme.

1. "Well Marie, once again my dear, you were as right as rain. I am, with out a doubt, the biggest pain in the butt that ever came down the pike. I meet someone who's company I really enjoy, and what do I do? I go overboard. I smother the poor soul. I cause him more trouble than he has a right to. God, I got a big mouth. When am I ever gonna wake up? I wish you were here with me right now. But... I guess that's not gonna happen. Not now, anyway. " - "Planes Trains and Automobiles" guessed by [profile] karelia

2. " Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. And forgive my husband. He knows not what he does. " - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - guessed by [personal profile] caity

3. " Seeing isn't believing. Believing is seeing" - The Santa Clause guessed by [personal profile] caity

4."You know what I'm going to get you next Christmas, Mom? A big wooden cross, so that every time you feel unappreciated for your sacrifices, you can climb on up and nail yourself to it. " - The Ref guessed by [personal profile] caity

5. "When what's left of you gets around to what's left to be gotten, what's left to be gotten won't be worth getting, whatever it is you've got left. " - White Christmas guessed by [personal profile] caity

6. "Light the lamp, not the rat, light the lamp, not the rat!." - Muppet Christmas Carol guessed by [profile] karelia

7. "I want the Turbo Man action figure with the arms and legs that move and the boomerang shooter and his rock'n roller jet pack and the realistic voice activator that says 5 different phrases including, "It's Turbo time!" Accessories sold separately. Batteries not included. " Jingle All the Way guessed by [livejournal.com profile] krasnoludek

8. "Aunt Clara had for years labored under the delusion that I was not only perpetually 4 years old, but also a girl." - A Christmas Story guessed by [profile] karelia

9. "Yes. You're, well, you're a tad off-base, sir. That thing looked like The Manson Family Christmas Special. " - Scrooged guessed by [personal profile] caity

10. "What's this? What's this? There's color everywhere! What's this? There's white things in the air! What's this? I can't believe my eyes, I must be dreaming; wake up, Jack, this isn't fair! What's this? " - Nightmare before Christmas guessed by [profile] karelia

nice work all, that didn't take very long.

The word Meme:
Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

From [livejournal.com profile] hbbtrbbtbcnbt. These are the words she gave me

1. Sci-Fi Geek - someone who has a high level of detailed knowledge about a specific series (TV, movies, book) or a wide variety of knowledge of multiple series. A descriptor of someone which is not an insult but a compliment.

2. History - events in a person's past that serve to shape it into what it is today. It is the source of mistakes made, lessons learned, and insight into who the person is.

3. Family - a source of great joy, great frustration and great sorrow. The best definition is one I'm stealing from the movie Parenthood where Grandma compares raising children to a roller coaster - "You know, it was just so interesting to me that a ride could make me so frightened, so scared, so sick, so excited, and so thrilled all together! Some didn't like it. They went on the merry-go-round. That just goes around. Nothing. I like the roller coaster. You get more out of it. "

4. Sisterhood - The bond that exists between women who are very close (not necessarily bound by blood). True love and devotion.

5. Generous - giving something (money, time, etc) for the benefit of someone else.
