The Four Things Meme.

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 movies you could watch over and over: Serendipity, Spider-Man, Red Dwarf, and Serenity.

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 TV shows you love to watch: Doctor Who, Mythbusters, X-Play, and Dirty Jobs.

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 albums you can’t live without: Thomas Dolby – The Golden Age of Wireless, Sheryl Crow – Tuesday Night Music Club, Barenaked Ladies – Gordon, and The Beatles – The White Album.

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.

Four people to do this meme: I’ll make this a family edition and pick my mom, dad, and sister to take on the task, assuming they feel like it.

  1. Gee thank you son—can I cheat and make it interesting or do you want the whole truth?  Yeah I know the answer.  It will go up on Momma’s Corner in a couple of days—I promise!!!  Oh and thanks for the bit about the lasagna.  Also I remember we used flattened coffee cans for the little rust holes in the floor of the Nova.  I thought that was really a clever idea!

  2. I must have missed the announcement, but this is the first I have seen that your dad has a blog.
    I hope the Archives are a few easy clicks LOL

  3. I had an announcement of sorts about it awhile back in the form of a NAME JAY’S BLOG competition. We had a number of what I thought were very good suggestions, but my Dad has yet to settle on a name for his blog and every time I ask he threatens to put it off for another month.

    I keep trying to tell him it’s no skin off my nose either way ‘cause it’s his blog, but you know what dads are like.

  4. Memories of my own dad are fading, but my husband reminds me of him in many ways.
    Every time some task gets a reminder, that means at least another 3 days before the subject can be brought up again, whether completed or not. confused

  5. Every time some task gets a reminder, that means at least another 3 days before the subject can be brought up again, whether completed or not. :confused:

    That reminds me of, well, unfortunately, me.
