Four Things Meme

I have been tagged by Polski3 (see blogroll), so without further ado:

Four jobs I have had:
1. Bagboy/stocker in a grocery store
2. Pump jockey at a gas station (this was in 1987-88 when people didn't always pump their own gas)
3. Soldier in the U.S. Army (administration, investigation, and postal functions mostly)
4. File clerk at an insurance company (worst 8 months of my life! Seriously.)

Four movies I can watch over and over:
1. Saving Private Ryan (The combat sequences are just breathtaking)
2. Patton (George C. Scott turns in one of the best acting performances in history)
3. Good Will Hunting (Profane, hilarious, and touching)
4. Predator ("Bunch of slack-jawed faggots around here. This stuff'll make you a Goddamn sexual tyrannosaurus... just like me." Best. Line. Ever. And uttered by a former governor of Minnesota no less)
5. Stakeout (Luuuucy, you got some esplainin' to dooooo!)
6. Jaws (Robert Shaw's adlibbed story of the U.S.S. Indianapolis always sends chills down my spine)

Yes, I know that was six instead of four, but I take my movies very seriously. My proper list would number about 20 or 30 at least!

Four places I have lived:
1. California (five different towns)
2. Giessen, Germany
3. Skopje, Macedonia
4. Fort Lewis/Tacoma, Washington

Four books I love:
1. Treason by Ann Coulter
2. Proverbs in the Bible
3. Pictorial History of the Civil War by Paul Angle
4. The Great Brain series by John D. Fitzgerald
5. The Bathroom Reader series by the Bathroom Reader Institute
6. Original Intent by David Barton

What can I say? I take my books very seriously too!

Four places I have vacationed:
1. Paris, France
2. Rome, Italy
3. Positano, Italy
4. Happy Camp, California (Yes, it is a real place! Look it up.)

Four of my favorite dishes (Yes Polski, I assume it means food!):
1. Any plate with seafood and pasta mixed together.
2. Polenta with sausage and tomato sauce
3. Fried chicken
4. Fish tacos from Rubio's (I have yet to find a better fish taco, and believe me, I have looked!)

Four sites I visit daily:
1. Neal Boortz's Nealz Nuze
2. Michelle Malkin/Hot Air (two different websites run by the same person)
3. World Net Daily
4. Little Green Footballs

Four places I would rather be right now:
1. Mount Shasta, California area
2. Sipping coffee and eating a chocolate croissant and a quiche lorraine at a boulangerie in the Porte Doree district of Paris, France
3. Walking the battlefield at Gettysburg
4. San Francisco (It's a screwy town, but I do love it so)

If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged. Feel free to put it in the comments section if you don't have your own blog. Darren, c'mon buddy, let's hear it!

Good Day to You, Sir

I would probably put Patton in my Top 10, but I'm like you. My movie list is huge.
Kudos also for choosing Predator. That's one of best action movies around, and is totally not politically correct. My wife hates that I own it, but I love to watch it once in awhile.
