Me, Me, Me, Meme

Oh my Gawd, I got tagged by Momma-Yaya (hi!) with a meme like, ten days ago, and I had no idea. The good news is that Momma-Yaya is already (I think) familiar with the enormity of my lameness, so this was to be expected. The bad news is that my lameness may perhaps make this meme quite uninteresting.

At any rate, here we go.

Four Jobs I've Had:
* Babysitter
* Info Desk staffer at my college Campus Center (which led at one point to me dressing up as an elf for our Family Holiday Extravaganza – sorry, no pictures)
* Student Advisor at a music school
* Freelance grant writer

Four Movies I Can Watch Over and Over:
* The Princess Bride
* Raising Arizona
* Welcome to the Dollhouse
* Rushmore

Four TV Shows I Love to Watch:
* The Sopranos
* Chappelle’s Show
* The Office
* My Name is Earl

Four Places I’ve Been on Vacation:
* Orlando, FL (Disney World, when I was 12)
* New Orleans (pre-Katrina)
* New York, NY (pre-9/11)
* Barcelona/Seville/Granada, Spain

Four Favorite Dishes:
* Groundnut stew ( I can't find my fave recipe for this online. I use the one from Vertamae Cooks in The Americas' Family Kitchen, which does not have sweet potatoes or eggs in it.)
* Oatmeal chocolate chip walnut cookies (my own recipe, I can't divulge)
* The breakfast quesadilla at Doughboys (HUGE, and so yummy)
* Microwave popcorn

Four Websites I Visit Daily:
* Salon
* Bloglines
* Craigslist
* Google

Four Places I’d Rather Be:
* Hiking in Griffith Park
* Lying on the beach in Cabo San Lucas
* Snuggling on the couch with Sweet William and Viva
* On tour promoting my bestselling novel

Four Bloggers I am Tagging
*
I am actually not going to tag anyone, but if you want to do this on your own initiative, hit me back and let me know you did it so I can read it and have deep insights into your twisted little mind. I would love to hear from MR. X and SPLOOEY since they don’t post on their blogs atall these days, and they’re the ones who encouraged me to blog in the first place. Come on, you two, don’t leave me hangin!

Hi back! Well, I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who feels completely lame after doing that meme. But you at least have good tv reception, unlike me. Which makes me far lamer.

If you could see our satellite dish, which is atttached to our balcony with a pole and reinforced with rubber cement and string, you would probably rethink your lameness on the TV reception. There is nothing like being right in the middle of a movie (or God forbid, NBA game) and suddenly having the picture disappear and a message display "satellite signal has been lost," simply because it is RAINING. Our TV reception is a joke, and we're paying an obscene amount of money for it. There, I said it!
