Meme Is Truly Outrageous, Truly Truly Truly Outrageous

Four things

Four Jobs You've Had in Your Life
  • Actor
  • Translator
  • Soldier
  • Food Service (Sketchy Pizza joint and then Burger King)
Four Movies You Could Watch Over and Over (I don't usually watch movies more than once, so maybe this'll be more of a 'Movies You've Really Been Digging Recently' thing)
Four Places You've Lived
  • [CENSORED] (Trust me though, it's a cool place)
  • Oahu, Hawai'i
  • New York City (If you can make it there... Well, I couldn't. Loved the city though)
  • Houston, Texas (shudder)
Four TV Shows You Love To Watch (I'm not much of a TV guy. I mean I like TV a lot, but I never really watch shows regularly. I need a TiVo, I guess)
  • The West Wing (is it still showing?)
  • Almost anything on the Travel or Discovery Channels
  • I Love the 70s (or 80s, or 90s or whatever - big surprise, I know :) )
  • The Daily Show/The Colbert Report
Four Places You've Been on Vacation
  • [CENSORED] (Also very cool places)
  • Moscow, Russia
  • Paris, France
  • Tampa, Florida
  • Napoli, Italy (got my watch stolen there. grrr...)
Four Blogs You Visit Daily (only four? Ok, but I've got scads on my feedreader, so I'll just put four at random. Don't feel left out if you aren't in the four!)
Four of Your Favorite Foods (only four!?)
  • Burritos
  • Mongolian Hot Pot
  • Ethiopian family style feasts
  • Chocolate. Dark. Bitter. Chocolate.
Four Places I'd Rather Be (I'm usually happy wherever I am. Hmmm... Minus field-related places, let's see...)
  • The Turkish coast
  • A nice secluded mountain retreat (with internet access and library privileges)
  • New York City
  • Scuba-ing somewhere warm and clear
Four Albums You Can't Live Without (The funny thing is that I don't really do albums anymore.)
  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack
  • Bat Out Of Hell
  • Any Big Sinatra Compilation
  • When Harry Met Sally Soundtrack
Four Vehicles I've Owned
  • '78 White Chevette! (like this but white)
  • umm.. '91-ish Red Toyota Somethingorother
  • '93 Dark Purple-Blue Bridgestone XO-3 18 speed
  • ummm... that's about it, I think... I can't remember the other bikes I've had. I'm not really a car person. :(
Hooray for memes!

Meme via everyone and their dog (or hamster)

Note: My best friend in college (the first unsuccessful attempt (at college, not friendship)) was (is) named Truly. Great name, yeah? Kinda like the line in Johnny Dangerously, "Did you know your name is an adverb?" Hi-larious. Maybe that should have been movie #4.

You put Bat Out of Hell on your album list.

That is so awesome I can't even stand it. You should come play bumper pool with us.

I can't help it. I'm really a quiet nerdish type, but there are some times when I need to turn the volume up to 11. Well, not really 11, that's too loud. And, I'd be wearing my headphones so I don't bother anyone too. So, yes, I'm pretty pathetic.

I heart the Jem reference in this post title.

Overread said...

hehe - I'm glad :)

sheepish said...

And I can't stand how awesome it is that you put down The Third Man. Good stuff!

I really liked Hudson Hawk too. I actually saw it in the theater.
