Four Things Meme

Four Jobs I've Had
1. Valet/Bellhop
2. Speed-Reading instructor
3. Busboy at Chi Chi's Mexican restaurant in Provo, UT for 20 whole minutes. It was really hard and the trays were heavy. I don't like being yelled at. I started to cry and turned in my two week notice within the hour.
4. "Secretary" for a guy who claimed to be Harvey Korman's cousin. I think we were laundering money. He tried to convince me that dishwashing detergent was more dangerous than any germs that might be on the dishes.

Four Movies I Can Watch Over and Over
1. All About Eve
2. Auntie Mame
3. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
4. Hair

Four Places I've Lived
1. Newport Beach, CA
2. Jackson Heights, NY
3. Downingtown, PA
4. Provo, UT

Four TV Shows I Love To Watch
1. Star Trek: Voyager
2. Seventh Heaven
3. The Bob Newhart Show
4. Dead Like Me

Four Places I've Been on Vacation
1. Paris
2. Provincetown, MA
3. Nice
4. New Hampshire

Four Blogs I Visit Daily
1. What I Made For Dinner

4. Tiny Cat Pants

Four of My Favorite Foods
1. bread
2. pad kee mao

Four Places I'd Rather Be

2. In a home/condo I own
3. running along the lakefront path
4. in a noisy restaurant with good music, a full bourbon and soda, my girl, and a plate of fried mozzarella.

Four Albums I Can't Live Without
1. Dusty Springfield, Dusty in Memphis
2. Sublime, 40 oz. To Freedom
3. Joni Mitchell, Miles of Aisles
4. The Beastie Boys, Paul's Boutique

Four Vehicles I've Owned
1. 1976 Volvo station wagon named Sonja, because my mom (who had the car first) claimed the car cost more than Sonja Henne made her first year skating professionally. Also, because Volvos and Henne are Scandinavian--not from the same countries, but either my mom didn't know that or thought they were close enough.
2. 1988 Honda Civic hatchback, with racing stripes and Enke wheels. I drove it for 12 years, until a 15 year old joy-riding in a U-Haul bashed into it FOUR times in a row. He hit it, tried to back up and escape, hit it again, tried to back up and escape, etc.
3. VW Golf
4. VW GTI

Four Taggees
I think everyone's done this by now. I'd love to tag
1. What I Made For Dinner and
2. Writer Mama, but I don't know if they like these games.
3. La Lecturess, have you done this? If not, tag.
4. I don't know if she reads my blog (I really doubt it) but Tiny Cat Pants, if you're out there, I definitely want to read your version of this.

I too have been a speed-reading instructor! Which is funny, since I'm actually a pretty slow reader, at least by the standards of most academics. But I took the job before I started my Ph.D. program so that I could get some experience standing in front of a classroom before I had to start doing it for real in grad school.

your first two movie choices are top drawer, I mean really top drawer.
But you really should stop behaving like the Queen Mother. Leave that to me.

Robert Mitchell I.I., you are my new best friend. Now go be a love and find the key to the closet. I've just smashed the ball, really, really smashed it.
