DOF tagged me to participate in this particular meme and he has an impressive portfolio of blackmail dirt on me so I figured I’d better comply…
Four jobs you’ve had in your life: Security Guard, McDonald’s Cook, Telephone Lineman, Professional Computer Geek. That last one actually encompasses more than a dozen different jobs.
Four places you’ve lived: DOF named states in his entry, but I’ve never lived outside of Michigan so I’ll have to make it cities in Michigan and they include: Pontiac, Lake Orion, Rochester Hills, and lastly Canton.
Four places you’ve been on vacation: Toronto, Florida, Massachusetts, California.
Four websites you visit daily: There are too many blogs to list without feeling like I’m leaving someone out so I’ll cheat and make one of the four sites I list Bloglines which is how I keep up with all the blogs I read every day. Beyond that there’s Blue’s News for my daily dose of video game news, Foxtrot as it’s my favorite comic strip, and Fark.com for ideas on things to blog about.
Four of your favorite foods: Plain cheesecake (putting anything on it is screwing with perfection), tomato juice (though I can’t stand raw tomatoes), Anne’s homemade chicken noodle soup, my mother’s homemade lasagna.
Four places you’d rather be: This one’s a might bit vague. Are we speaking of a temporary or permanent relocation? I’d rather be in my own house for one thing. Wouldn’t mind being in Hawaii or Denver for a little while at least. Perhaps the Bahamas. Overall, though, I don’t spend a lot of time wishing I was someplace else.
Four magazines you read: I only currently have one magazine subscription and that’s to Computer Shopper and that’s only because my wife got it for me from one of those college kids that come round your front door every so often and plead with you to buy a subscription to save them from having wild dogs set loose upon them. Personally I’d pay good money to see the dogs let loose.
Four cars you’ve owned: A 1969 Chevy Nova that had no front suspension to speak of. It was my first car bought shortly after we moved from Pontiac to Lake Orion in my 17th year of existence. We had to replace the floorboard in front of the seats because it had rusted out. Everytime I hit a bump the car would bottom out and shoot sparks out the back. This eventually wore away the bottom of the mufflers, but I digress… Let’s see… we’ll make the last three the most recent in ascending order: 1988 Pontiac Sunbird, 1994 Pontiac Sunfire, 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix. The last being my current conveyance.
