I’m as surprised as the next that I seem to be the first of Garrett’s tagees to succumb to this chain-bloggery calling itself a meme.

I feel like a hungover conventioneer on a Las Vegas morning when I say “I usually don’t do that sort of thing”, but here goes:

4 jobs I’ve had:

  • illicit chewing gum retail (middle school)
  • subway wage slave (before it had the “sandwich artist” cachet)
  • busboy in a fancy restaurant (a very worthwhile experience)
  • teaching assistant

4 movies I can watch repeatedly:

4 TV shows I enjoy (love is too strong):

  • Twin Peaks (“she’s dead! wrapped in plastic”)
  • The Simpsons (Due to a long period of complete TV ignorance following the Twin Peaks cancellation, I didn’t get on board until around season six, but I’ve made up for it in the intervening decade.)
  • The Sopranos
  • Six Feet Under

4 places I’ve vacationed:

4 of my favorite dishes:
Oh, this is hard. I like eating…

  • seafood stews of most varieties (clam chowder, bouillabaisse, Tutto Pasta‘s spaghetti alla frutti di mare)
  • risotto with sage, gorgonzola, and tomato (this is much more a favorite of Amy’s, but it has grown on me)
  • thanksgiving dinner (the food is pretty unremarkable, but the meal shared with friends is what makes the eating worthwhile)
  • good thin-crust pizza (ideally with tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, and pepperoni)

4 sites I visit daily:

4 places I’d rather be right now:

  • graduate school (really? I’m not sure…)
  • Italy (on vacation. soon.)
  • “the hills” (in general. this is the code A and I share for anyplace where this isn’t considered news and this doesn’t pass for entertainment)
  • (I’m actually pretty happy with things, at least those things I could change.)

4 others to join in with their sets o’ four:

  • stealth-blogging Amy (now outed!)
  • Rich (I dare you to answer via dashblog entries…)
  • Josh Friess (ask Josh how I “stopped” him from retiring early on the entrepreneurial brilliance of hosted blogging <grin>)
  • the blogless Matt D. O. (you know who you are. Answer in someone’s comment field…)

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
