The Four Horsemen of the Meme

Greg of Life in the Coastal Empire is back and tagging. So I will play along to welcome him back.

Four Jobs You’ve Had:

1) Camp counselor at a private residential camp in Colorado. I did it for ten summers and loved every minute of it. That experience was instrumental in shaping my outlook on life, my choice of careers, and where I went to grad school. I also met some wonderful people who have become lifelong friends.

2) Data input at a magazine subscription service. You know all those magazine invoice forms that go to some P.O. box in Boulder, Colorado? Bingo. I did it for nine months working from 3:45 p.m. to midnight. It was like something out of The Adding Machine.

3) Drama teacher in a private school. I love kids (see entry 1) and I love theatre, but I think there’s some karmic disconvergence against me teaching playwriting, dramatic literature, and theatre history to a bunch of rich kids, one of whom stated that learning about Eugene O’Neill was pointless because she wanted to be the next Britney Spears.

4) Purchasing manager for a window and door company. I learned a lot about business, sales, how to get along with people, and how to apply those skills to the job I have now.

Four Places You’ve Lived:

1) Perrysburg, Ohio
2) Miami, Florida
3) Santa Fe, New Mexico
4) Longmont, Colorado
and about fifteen other places as well.

Four Movies You’d Like to See Over and Over:

1) Dave
2) The Great Escape
3) Casablanca
4) Inherit the Wind (the original with Spencer Tracy)

Four TV Shows You Like to Watch:

1) M*A*S*H
2) The West Wing
3) Numb3rs
4) CSI

Four Websites I Visit Daily:

1) The Liberal Coalition blogroll (I know, cop-out)
2) The Miami Herald
3) Why Now?
4) T. Rex’s Guide to Life

Four Places I’d Rather Be:

1) Montserrat
2) Key West
3) Tobago
4) Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado (in the summer)

Four People to Tag:
