Tag, You're It!

James Wilson at Independent Country has tagged me with a chain-post, "Memes of Fours." I'm not familiar with this in a blog setting, but since this chain is free of the usual "pass this along and you'll have some great thing happen; failure to do so will result in everybody you know dying" or some such nonsense, I think it'll be fun. Here goes next-to-nothing:

Four jobs I’ve had:

1. car smasher at a wrecking yard (by far the most fun job I've ever had!)
2. department store stockroom temp (where I met my wife the first time)
3. pizza delivery dude
4. architect

Four movies I can watch over and over:

1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
2. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Four places I’ve lived: (yawn)

1. Concord, CA
2. Berkeley, CA
3. Pleasant Hill, CA
4. Walnut Creek, CA

Four (screw it...FIVE) TV shows I love [the fifth slot was Wally Conger's addition]:

It doesn't say whether these are current or all-time. I don't watch much TV on my own anymore, but usually only watch what my wife watches when I'm in the room., so I'll answer with my all-time faves.

1. Monty Python's Flying Circus
2. Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show
3. Barney Miller
4. Carol Burnett Show
5. Cheers

Four highly regarded and recommended TV shows I haven’t seen (much of):

1. Friends
2. Will and Grace
3. 24
4. Lost

Four places I’ve vacationed:

1. San Diego, CA
2. Denver, CO
3. Phoenix, AZ
4. my wife's kitchen (remodel)

Four of my favorite dishes:

1. my wife's lemon chicken
2. my mom's cornish pasties
3. chicken enchilada special from El Tapatio/La Tapatia
4. lamb vindaloo

Four sites I visit daily:

1. Independent Country
2. St George Blog
3. Center for Cultural Leadership
4. John H Armstrong

Four places I’d rather be right now:

1. Little Italy district of downtown San Diego with my wife
2. ballgame at Fenway Park in Boston (I've never been there)
3. Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, NY
4. wouldn't you like to know?

Four new bloggers I’m tagging:

(I don't think four even read my blog to know they're tagged) Is this blogspam lite?

1. Vache Folle
3. Bruce Gerencser (Hungarian Luddite) - added March 7th


  1. OK, I've found one nice side benefit of this tagging thing - it leads us to new sites we haven't encountered before. I'm bookmarking this one!

  2. I always find other peoples lists interesting. Each of us, with our likes and dislikes, are unique individuals. You love Monty Python........I can't stand it. Now on baseball we can agree........... Enjoyed the insight.
