A Meme for Monday

I’m in New York for a few more days, so no recipes until later in the week, but it turns out that it’s perfect timing for a meme post. Bea tagged me on Friday with this 4×8 list in which you will learn just how random I can be:

Four Jobs I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢ve Had in My Life:
1. Group Program Manager, Microsoft
2. Web Developer and Business Owner
3. Movie Theater Ticket Taker
4. Veterinary Assistant (when I was 12 to 14!)
Do you think this list could be more random?

Four Movies I Could (and I do) Watch Over and Over:
Oh, there are too many….
1. Lost in Translation
2. Dude Where’s My Car
3. The Double Life of Veronique (or Red, Blue or White also by Kieslowski)
4. Bring It On

Four Places I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢ve Lived:
I’m going to have to leave off well over half, if I limit this to 4. Here are some of the more interesting spots:
1. Agana, Guam (the first 6 weeks of my life)
2. Cranston, Rhode Island
3. Boulder, CO
4. Seattle, WA

Four TV Shows I Love to Watch:
Unlike Bea, I do watch TV. Too much TV. I had to limit these to shows that are current… which, actually cuts out a lot of my favorites (Buffy!)
1. Grey’s Anatomy (current addiction)
2. How I Met Your Mother
3. Gilmore Girls
4. My Name Is Earl

Four Places I Have Been on Vacation:
I travel a lot, so I was going to make this my favorites. But, I pretty much love everywhere I’ve been, and couldn’t come up with a list of just 4 favorites. So, these are just the most recent. Not counting anything in the US. Or Canada. Did I mention that I travel a lot?
1. Amsterdam, Holland
2. Serengeti, Tanzania, Africa
3. Buenos Ares, Argentina
4. Tours, France

Four Websites I Visit Daily:
Leaving out all of the food blogs I frequent almost daily:
1. Flickr
2. >Slashfood
3. >Seattle Metroblog
4. New York Time Travel section

Four of My Favorite Foods:
1. Cheese. I graciously decline to narrow it down more than that.
2. Berries. Straight up, any kind of berries, no whip cream please.
3. Sushi. From the west coast. Preferably anywhere in British Columbia.
4. Bread and Butter

Four Places I Would Rather Be Right Now:
I’m having a pretty awesome time in NYC this week, so it’s hard to answer this. But, as a rule, I’d almost always love to be:
1. Anywhere in Italy
2. Anywhere in France
3. Visiting more countries (Zambai, Botswana, South Africa) in Africa
4. Australia or New Zealand (because I’ve never been)

Four Tags to Continue this Meme:
Oh dear. This is always the tricky part. I’m going to try to tag different people than I usually do as I’m pretty sure they are starting to get a little annoyed with me. Time to annoy others. Except for Cam. He has to put up with me (plus he owes me one from last time).
1. Cam, my DH
2. Matt, from Matt Bites (if you haven’t seen his gorgeous food blog yet, it’s an absolute MUST!)
3. Catherine, from Madeleine (I completely love her delightfully rich tales of foodie adventures)
4. And Skippy from Techno Luddite

    Hey L,

    So sorry not come through on the meme just yet! I had to research what one was to begin with…

    My life has been sans internet, sans sanity with a new house in the throes of renovation & east coast family out here rolling up their sleeves to help. I feel pangs of guilt if I don’t have a paintbrush in my hand at all times, but sure do miss the writing life! I won’t let you down though.

    Your food photography is absolutely ravishing, my dear. Who else could make okra look so appetizing? Thanks for tagging my site–you made me grin big. Hey, did you have anything to do with me making the weekly roundup in CBS New’s Blogophile column? I was quoted & linked to their site as a must-read for my cheese sandwich musings. Yee haw!

    Hi L,
    Have found your website for the first time today and love the recipes, photos and stories. Yours is one of the best blogs I’ve found.
    You have inspired me to finally take the plunge and set up my own food blog.
    BTW, I live in Australia and you should take that trip – you will love the food here.
    Best regards,
    Kathy

    wow. how did it go so long that I left all these wonderful comments unanswered? Sorry all!

    Bea – that sounds wonderful.

    Matt – still waiting on you picking the meme up!

    Shaz – the food scene in singapore is amazing. I’m definitely enjoying keeping up on it… and I’d love to visit one of these days!

    Catherine – Thanks so much! No, I didn’t have anything to do with it, but I did see it! Very cool.

    Kathy – Welcome! And, thanks for the high praise! I’ll have to check out what you’ve got going on down there… I’m such a huge fan of Aussie food styling.
