Stronger Than Four Things Meme ... Pete Moss

Okey dokey, Feral Mom, I'll play.

Four jobs I've had:

1. Golf course tractor operator (best)
2. Law firm associate (worst)
3. Copy editor (grew into a career, sort of)
4. Third-shift motel desk clerk (sorta sleazy)

Four movies I can watch over and over:

1. Dr. Strangelove
2. Swimming to Cambodia
3. The Big Lebowski
4. Repo Man

Four places I've lived:

1. Gurnee, IL
2. DeKalb, IL (underrated!)
3. Ottawa, IL (yuck)
4. Chicago, IL

Four places I've been on vacation:

1. Portland, OR
2. Hawaii (Big Island)
3. Santa Fe, NM
4. Branson, MO (horrible beyond belief)

Four websites I visit daily:

1. Robot Wisdom
2. Chicago Sun-Times
3. WFMU Blog
4. Crooks and Liars

With most honorable mention to Bedazzled, with its most awesomest recent post here, an amazing Quicktime movie featuring the Shangri Las (hyperbolically recommended): http://bedazzled.blogs.com/bedazzled/2006/03/right_now_not_l.html

Four of my favorite foods:

1. Shawarma sammitch (w/ beer)
2. BBQ pork banh mi sammitch (w/ beer)
3. Eye-talian beef sammitch (w/ beer)
4. Chili (any kind, w/ lots of beer)

Four places I'd rather be:

1. At any given moment, I'd rather be in the kitchen, cooking something. Or washing the dishes. I know that's insane, but both things relax me.
2. U.S. Cellular Field (formerly Comiskey Park, home of the White Sox)
3. Somebody's back yard or back porch in Chicago in the summer on a warm evening, adjacent to the beer cooler but also not so far from the grill
4. Foster Ave. Beach
(I have a pretty limited range.)

I don't really know a lot of blog people I'd feel comfortable "tagging" ... I'd ask Mr. Foojang, but he's a busy, busy man. So I gotta punk out on the last one.

DeKalb IS underrated. And sign me up for backyard summer bbqs in Chicago too.
