The Meme of Four
Florence, January 1983. Note authenticity-indicating rips, stains, faded non-permanent Italian Kodak colours and such.
Here's a 'Four Things' meme I nicked from The Rest is Noise and felt compelled to have a go at.
Four jobs you've had in your life:
Dishwasher in a Greek restaurant
Research assistant for an economist
Singer with a band
Four movies you could watch over and over:
Some Like it Hot
West Side Story
Not quite the same thing as 'movies you thought were brill' or Dead Man, Fargo, Trainspotting, Broadcast News and The Piano would all be in here. Note predominance of performance/spectacle in listed 4, something which has only just occurred to me.
Four places you've lived:
Klagenfurt in Austria (very briefly, but I was working -- counts as 'lived in').
Four TV shows you love to watch:
Will & Grace
But nothing on the teeve these days can touch Cracker, Prime Suspect, Northern Exposure or Hamish Macbeth. (NB -- new 2-hour reprise ep of Cracker, made 2005, coming up shortly!)
Four places you've been on vacation:
Four websites you visit daily:
Larvatus Prodeo (I assume blogs count)
Four of your favorite foods:
Only four, huh?
My homemade fresh-cherry-and-toasted-almond ice cream
Haigh's dark chocolate truffles.
Four places you'd rather be:
The Scottish Highlands
Younger (see tastes in TV, above) and fitter (see Haigh's truffles, above)
Singing in opera
Four tagged (heh):
