Tagged, I'm It?

I've been 'tagged' twice this week. Being a blogging neonate, I wasn't sure what that meant so I had to ask. Apparently this is kind of a game where I'm supposed to copy the questions or categories from the blog that tagged me, delete the other blogger's answers and put in my own. So OK, I can be a sport. In the spirit of self-disclosure....

The first one comes from ...slowly she turned, a terrific blog by my blogging mentor.

4 jobs I've had:
