The Meme of "Four"

B.W. Richardson tagged me for the “Meme of Four” last Saturday. I’ve taken a while to respond, but better late than never, I hope.

Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. Busboy (First real wage job);
  2. Short-order cook (first semi-respected wage job);
  3. Stripper (Probably not what you think – in a shoe/boot factory a stripper removes footwear from lasts – provocative ain’t I?);
  4. Computer guy (I’ve done more than four fairly different types of work within the IS/IT trade for over 20 years, but I figure if I only listed them some people would think it a “cop-out”).

Four movies I can watch over and over: (Only four?)

  1. Strictly Ballroom;
  2. Carousel;
  3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind;
  4. Wild River;
  5. (If this movie would ever be released on DVD, or even VHS, I would write a review of it too.)

Four places I’ve lived:

  1. LaCrosse, Wi.
  2. Madison, Wi.
  3. Fitchburg, Wi.
  4. Middleton, Wi.
(I haven’t had a permanent residence outside Wisconsin.)

Four TV shows I love: (I hardly watch any “television” these days, so some of mine are old.)

  1. The Daily Show;
  2. Firefly;
  3. Twilight Zone (the original series);
  4. The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin (BBC/PBS).

Four highly regarded and recommended TV shows I haven’t seen:

  1. Veronica Mars;
  2. Boston Legal;
  3. Farscape;
  4. The Sopranos.

Four places I’ve vacationed:

  1. Black Hills;
  2. New Orleans;
  3. Atlanta;
  4. Texas.

Four of my favorite dishes:

  1. Prime Rib Au Jus;
  2. Hot and Sour soup;
  3. Fresh cheese curds;
  4. Raw kohlrabi straight from the garden (and peeled).

Four sites I visit daily/regularly: (Other than Endervidualism):

  1. Sunni Maravillosa and the Conspirators;
  2. Montag ... ;
  3. Out of Step;
  4. Independent Country.

Four places I’d rather be right now: (No travel backwards in time for me, that’d make a limit of four impossible.)

  1. Driving in the countryside;
  2. Watching a good movie;
  3. Minnesota Renaissance Faire (outside Shakopee, MN.);
  4. Reading in bed (never enough of that).

Four new bloggers I’m tagging

  1. Matt Bryan;
  2. Alina Stefanescu;
  3. Scott Bieser;
  4. Sheldon Richman.
Of course, they remain free to participate or not, but in the unlikely event that they’ve been waiting for a “tag,“ now they have one.
