Attempting disinterest (but it's just a front).
And hey, if super blogger celebrity Kottke can do it, so can I! (I still kind of cheated a little, though.)
Anyway, here it is, my four things.
Four jobs I've had: ice cream scooper, chemistry lab teaching assistant, Kaplan SAT prep class teacher, medical writer.
Four movies I could watch over and over: Um. I don't really watch movies over and over. Maybe Legally Blonde and Bring It On, because I used to watch those a lot with my old roommate? In elementary school I used to watch Lady and the Tramp a lot, but that was because the after-school program teachers would always show it whenever we had days off of school. (Instead, should I do "four books I could read over and over"? These books are the equivalent of a security blanket for me: Circle of Friends, High Fidelity, The Shipping News, This Boy's Life.)
Four places I've lived (I am doing five--I have only lived in five places, ever): Westmont NJ, Voorhees NJ, Providence RI, Somerville MA, Seattle WA. (Oh wait--I lived in Medford MA too. But that was close enough to Somerville to count it as one.)
Four TV shows I love (I am choosing shows that are on tv now): Project Runway, The Office, Gilmore Girls, Law and Order: Criminal Intent.
Four highly regarded TV shows that I have never watched a minute of: Lost, 24, Deadwood, The Shield.
Four places I've vacationed: I don't get the point of this one. I've been to a ton of different places. Instead I'm doing the last four places I've visited that have required a plane or longish car ride: Boston, Las Vegas, Portland OR, Voorhees NJ.
Four of my favorite dishes: lavash bread pizza and cheap wine, bhangan bharta and/or mattar paneer and garlic naan, sushi (eel and avocado, spicy tuna, anything salmon), grilled cheese and tomato soup. (Seriously, there are WAY more than four: falafel from East Side Pockets in Providence, french fries with lots of ketchup, the bacon that I made as part of Christmas dinner, Granny Smith apples and peanut butter, pickles, chocolate cake doughnuts from Dunkin Donuts...okay, I should stop now.)
Four sites I visit daily: Gmail, eGullet...and it's way more than four, because daily I visit everyone I've linked to on my blog.
Four places I'd rather be right now: in Boston before a huge snowstorm with lots of books and movies and food and baking supplies and alcohol (and in my dream I don't have to leave the house for a week and every single person I like in Boston lives a block away and can trudge through the snow to reach me), right in the front at a small-venue concert of one of my favorite bands (we can start with something like CYHSY, but if this is my dream: Wilco or the Shins), at Trivia Night, driving across country from Boston to Seattle.
And I'm not going to tag anyone, because it's like the candygram thing: what if no one does it? Then I'll feel bad. But if you want to, you should do it! It's totally fun.
