The Gang of Four

Because…why not. (via Miss Em)

Four jobs you’ve had in your life

  1. Sheet Music Salesperson: This was the second job I ever had, after my week and a half stint at Wal-Mart. I had a strong work ethic and was able to snag a 10 cent raise after a month or so, bringing my salary up from a pathetic $5.15/hr to a whole $5.25. Go me! This job was interrupted by cancer. I’d been working there maybe a month or two before I got sick, and then I was out for several months, and I finally came back for a month when I got well, but then I got the next job:
  2. Stereo Compiler: This is the most interesting one, except that it’s boring–you trace maps in three dimensions from aerial photography. I had it figured out in a month and was one of the fastest workers after that, but I got so bored! This was also my second highest paying job to date.
  3. Night Desk Clerk: I’m sorry to say that this is still my favorite job. I sat around playing on the Internet all night in the UK dorms and got paid for it. (More, I might add, than I got selling sheet music.)
  4. Data Entry/Receptionist/Page Designer/Dispatcher/Shipping Coordinator/Product and Service Researcher/Web Designer/Email Newsletter Designer/Copywriter and Editor/Customer Service Representative: So yeah, I did a lot at that restaurant delivery service. You can see why I have trouble characterizing the position. Usually I just go with “Administrative Assistant”. In any case, I was bored less in this job than any other.

Four movies you could watch over and over
Coming to America, The Wedding Singer, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (actually it’s been many years since I saw this movie, but I know I would watch it over and over if I could), and The Fifth Element. Basically if a movie has a lot of substance, it takes me awhile before I can watch it again. But simple, well-done stories are infinitely rewatchable. For me these are mainly comedies, romantic comedies, and action flicks.

Four places you’ve lived
Err…I haven’t lived in four places, unless you count those three weeks in Yatsushiro, Japan ;P The other places are Nicholasville, Kentucky, Huntsville, Alabama, and Augusta, Georgia.

Four TV shows you love to watch
Kyou Kara Maou!, Smallville, Friends, and lately Hana Yori Dango live action, though I’m afraid it might be over at just 9 episodes :/ (I’ll know soon enough…)

Four Places You’ve Been on Vacation
Chicago (when I was a kid), Disney World (junior year of high school), Japan (2003), and Boston (2004).

Four Websites You Visit Daily
Bloglines, to read all my subscriptions (see Blogroll)
MSN.com, because it’s my homepage
General Protection Fault, because it updates daily unlike many of the webcomics I read; this does not mean I like it better, however (right now I’m obsessed with Girl Genius)

Four of Your Favorite Foods
Unagidon, hamburgers, General Tso’s chicken, Christmas cookies

Four places you’d rather be
Well, right now I’m at my parents’ house, and I don’t really want to be anywhere else. But in general, I’d rather be: in my own house; anywhere in Japan; in college; anywhere in the world on vacation.

Man, I’m in the mood to answer more questions! Ah well :)
