four things meme

as seen a couple of places

Four Jobs I've Had:

1. "Editor" for an online company to which students submitted writing (both college application essays and academic work) and got back a much more coherent and grammatically correct version. It felt vaguely unethical, but not quite enough to stop doing it. I did stop when I entered grad school, though.
2. Singer in a professional Episcopal church choir. I am your typical atheist Jew, but they sure paid well, and were (and are) a kickass choir to boot.
3. Cleaner of college dorm bathrooms (when I was an undergrad). Girls were messier overall, but boys had the real stinkers.
4. Admin assistant in the PR department of a large performing arts organization. They expected me to start caring about my job, so I quit.

Four Movies I Could Watch Over and Over Again:

1. Pirates of the Caribbean
2. Singin' in the Rain
3. The Triplets of Belleville
4. The scene with Bill Murray, RZA and GZA from Coffee and Cigarettes

Four Places I've Lived:

1. a large house with nuclear family and cats
2. a dorm room with tarepanda-loving roommate
3. a small apartment with loved one
4. one bedroom in a semi-detached row house with shared living space

Four TV Shows I Love to Watch:

1. Serenity
2. Arrested Development
3. The West Wing (oldies on DVD)
4. Gray's Anatomy (in the love-to-hate-it category)

Four Places I've Been on Vacation:

1. Vancouver, BC
2. Kitty Hawk, NC
3. Singapore
4. Montreal, QC

Four of My Favorite Foods:

1. thin NY-style pizza
2. Singapore hawker stall food
3. my mom's soups
4. bagels with cream cheese and lox

Four Places I'd Rather Be:

1. New York
2. the Canadian Rockies, in summer
3. Crete
4. San Francisco

Four Albums I Can't Live Without:

1. Signals, Calls and Marches, Mission of Burma
2. something by Galaxie 500
3. Bach motets performed by Phillippe Herreweghe
4. something by David Bowie [not so good with the album names]

Four Methods of Transportation I've Used:

1. Overnight train
2. Tandem bicycle
3. Canoe
4. Feet
