Tag Day: Four Things

Happy February 1! January was easily the slowest month in the history of months, but it's finally over. Do you feel old yet? I'm chipper today because this is the first February where I've had the calendar up on the sidebar, and it looks like the code I wrote to figure out leap years is working wonderfully.

I wrote today's update on Monday when Kim got tagged, since I presumed a tag would be imminent, but then she decided to upset the status quo by not tagging anyone and I was left with an unprovoked tag post like an overeager European schoolboy trying to clap all the erasers before being asked. That analogy doesn't really work, but analogies are allowed be completely inappropriate as long as they sound unusual enough to interest the reader. So as not to deny you my answers, here they are -- you could say that I tagged myself, except that it sounds rather dirty, and this is a family-oriented site, dammit.

Four jobs I've had in my life

  1. Software Engineer for the Big Bucks (FGM) and for the Not So Big Bucks (PEPCO)
  2. Sightsinging/Theory Teacher for Musically Deficient Students
  3. Marching Band Drill Writer
  4. Stage Crew Foreman for the Alexandria Symphony

Four movies I can watch over and over

  1. Memento
  2. Back to the Future trilogy (yes this is cheating)
  3. The Fugitive
  4. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade or maybe Conspiracy Theory

Four places I've lived

  1. Alexandria, VA (1979 - 1996)
  2. Blacksburg, VA (1996 - 2001)
  3. Tallahassee, FL (2001 - 2003)
  4. Sterling, VA (2004 - 2006)

Four TV shows I love to watch

  1. Alias (cancelled)
  2. LOST (not yet cancelled)
  3. Arrested Development (cancelled)
  4. Scrubs (might as well be cancelled)

Four places I have been on vacation

  1. Burton, MI at my grandparent's house
  2. Outer Banks in various rental houses (I'm not trendy enough to be allowed to call it OBX)
  3. Henderson, NV on a turkey ranch
  4. Sterling, VA (!)

Four of my favourite dishes

  1. Popeye's 2 Piece Meal (Dark, Mild) with Fries
  2. Tuesday Tenders with Mild Buffalo Wing Sauce, no seasoning on the fries, mushrooms instead of coleslaw
  3. Two Banquet Chicken Pot Pies
  4. Velveeta Shells and Cheese

Four websites I visit daily

  1. News: CNN, Portal of Evil, and Slashdot
  2. NoHunters Forum and the other NoHunters Forum
  3. All the blogs in the sidebar
  4. The Superficial

Four places I would rather be right now

  1. The Outer Banks
  2. Right where I am with Booty in my lap and Amber choking down a blinds cord
  3. In the White House repealing stupid laws, having just beat Arnold Schwarzenegger in a national election decided by a thumb-wrestling match after our tie for the vote
  4. In my pants

Four bloggers I am tagging

  1. Anna
  2. Rachel
  3. Kathy
  4. Annalyn
I know that none of you clowns have blogs, but you do visit regularly, so you can pick any four of these categories and answer in the comments section! Who says you can't have fun in the URI! Zone? This is like the SmarterChild of the new millenium.

Janet Reno sings RESPECT
Another said of Sen. Tom Coburn that: "Coburn was voted the most annoying Senator by his peers in Congress. This was due to Senator Coburn being a huge douche-bag."
The animals are said to respond well to the strains of Beethoven and Mozart, but are not fans of pop or dance music.
