Just a Copycat

Don did it, and I've never followed these mem thingies, so now I am:

Four jobs I have had in my life:
1) Paperboy - SF Chronicle
2) Dairy dessert products marketing specialist (scooped ice cream at Swensen's in Berkeley)
3) Export Letter of Credit negotiator
4) Graduate Affairs coordinator and overall fixer

Four movies I would watch over and over (and have):
1) Lawrence of Arabia
2) Casablanca
3) Out of the Past
4) The Four Feathers (Korda Bros. version from 1939, not that cheap trash of a few years back)
5) Dr. No. (Fuck it. This category needs five!)

Four places I have lived:
1) Barstow, CA
2) Camp Pendleton, CA
3) Yuma, AZ
4) Berkeley, CA

Four TV shows I like to watch(Jeez, there ain't many):
1) Unwrapped - food channel
2) Spongebob Squarepants (I have a three year old son! Besides, it's brilliant)
3) Keith Olbermann
4) Reruns of the Addams Family

Four places I have been on vacation:
1) Ireland
2) Mo'orea, French Polynesia
3) Lone Pine, CA
4) Kualoa, Oahu, HI

Four of my favorite foods:
1) My lovely wife's panko-breaded baked chicken breast
2) Grilled tri-tip
3) Grilled or poached salmon
4) A perfect navel orange

Four of my favorite animals:
1) Our dog, Springheel Jack; a strange and magnificent beast
2) Peregrine Falcon
3) Those weird little brilliant blue fish that thrive around the big coral heads in the lagoon near Cook's Bay, Mo'orea.
4) Arabian horse

Four places I would rather be right now:
1) Typing this in a time share at the Club Bali Hai, Cook's Bay, Mo'orea
2) On a grassy hill in the Himalaya, staring at Everest, on our way up to Base Camp
3) London, at the Queen's Birthday Parade, Trooping the Colour
4) Somewhere on the western slope of the White Mountains, staring out at the Owens Valley, CA
