Fours meme

Speaking of fours... as seen everwhere on the Interweb these days:

Four jobs I’ve had
1. Scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbins
2. Assessing tax returns (Only thing I ever failed in school? Income tax returns. Go figure.)
3. Marketing for a program that recycles used computers into classrooms
4. Communications advisor

Four movies I've could watch over and over
1. Moulin Rouge
2. The Princess Bride
3. Anything featuring Monty Python
4. Bull Durham

Four places I’ve lived
1. With my folks in London, Ontario
2. With six students in an 80 year old house in the Glebe (Ottawa)
3. On my own in a tiny apartment in Old Ottawa South
4. With my boys in beautiful suburban Barrhaven (also a neighbourhood of Ottawa)

Four TV shows I love
1. Lost
2. Corner Gas
3. Scrubs
4. Grey’s Anatomy (kind of cheating to put that one on the list, cuz I’ve only ever seen two episodes, but the one I saw last week was one of those recap episode and all I could think of was, How did I miss this show until now?)

Four places I've been on vacation
1. Cooperstown NY (baseball hall of fame)
2. Las Vegas (I was 12)
3. Paris (twice)
4. Florida (bunch of times, all before age 15)

Four blogs I visit daily
Read the sidebar bit about my ideal bloggy dinner party. They’re the milk in my cornflakes.

Four Favorite Foods
1. Guacamole
2. Barbequed steak and baked onions at my parent’s house
3. Ruffled plain potato chips and Helluva Good french onion chip dip
4. Just about anything that gets delivered to the door

Four places I'd rather be
1. Curled up on the back patio in the shade watching the boys play in the sun
2. Driving the back roads with a hot coffee and sleeping baby(ies) in the back seat
3. Browsing just about anywhere, from a flea market to a book store to Ikea
4. At a daytime matinee with Beloved, holding hands and sharing popcorn in the dark

Four CDs I listened to most recently
Eponymous – The Tragically Hip
Maroon – The Barenaked Ladies
Wiggly Safari – The Wiggles with Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin
Oh What a Feeling 2, Disc 3

Last four vehicles I’ve owned
1991 Mazda 323 (bought new, drove the hell out of it, traded it for $1k )
1998 Pontiac Sunfire (leased)
2001 Ford Focus Wagon (leased)
2004 Ford Focus Wagon (bought; identical to previous Focus wagon except for colour)

I think I’m the last person on the Interweb to do this meme, but if you haven’t yet and your muse has gone out for smokes, feel free to consider yourself tagged. Drop me a note and let me know you played!
