The Texture Of Things

Meme of Fours

November 11th, 2006

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. Car Wash Extraordinaire (Okay, I dried cars with towels as they came off the line.)
2. Movie Concession Queen (No one kept that entire popcorn counter crankin’ like me!)
3. English Tutor (Too, too many years of this before and sometimes during teaching.)
4. Industrial-strength embroidery sewing machine operator (Family business. There is never any escaping it, not even now that I’m a grown up. I still help out at holiday time.)

Four movies I would watch over and over
1. The Blues Brothers
2. Better Off Dead
3. Much of the Monty Python catalog (Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Meaning of Life – in that order)
4. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Four places I have lived in my life
1. An island off of the Upper Penninsula of Michigan, where I was born
2. A different apartment every year I was at “Cornfield” State University (in West Michigan) for my four-year degree
3. A Southeast Michigan city, when I first got married, known only for its two intersecting highways that lead to all the better cities
4. A Southeast Michigan suburb, where I live now, about ten miles west of the Southeast Michigan suburb I grew up in

Four TV shows I love to watch:
1. Good Eats (!!!)
2. Law & Order, regular or SVU
3. South Park
4. Daily Show/Colbert Report

Four places I have been on vacation:
1. Disney X, in Florida (I was a child. I got lost for most of the day. It sucked.)
2. Yellowstone National Park (It was our honeymoon. It was splendid and I recommend it.)
3. Algoma, Wisconsin (We go to a friend’s family cabin – very good times every time we go.)
4. Flagstaff, Arizona, plus the Grand Canyon (We visited an old college friend of mine there years ago, and I’d go back with the tot in a heartbeat.)

Websites I visit daily
1. Ask Moxie
2. Parenthacks
3. eBay
4. Fark.com
Bonus: Paperbackswap

Four of my favorite foods
1. Cookies, chocolate or otherwise
2. Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats, plain (don’t waste my time with the flavors. really.)
3. Cheese, alone or with macaroni
4. Salty, store-bought tortilla chips
Bonus: Coffee
Bonus: Diet Pepsi

Four places I would rather be right now
1. On the sofa with a fleece blanket and a cat (Mittinz, perferrably)
2. At the mall, shopping for Christmas gifts and a dress/outfit for the tot to wear in her holiday pictures
(I know, I’m not even a shopper, really, so what’s up with this?)
3. Someplace warmer than Michigan right now, with water
4. Someplace colder than Michigan right now, with snow
(I am tired of brown mud and rain. If winter is coming, on with it!)

Four friends I am tagging:
Meh. If you want to be tagged, consider yourself so tagged.
