THE FOURS MEME

18 December 2005

Well, good ol' Mary has come up with another fun sounding meme.

A. FOUR JOBS YOU’VE HAD IN YOUR LIFE:

* Typing service typist
* Medical Transcriptionist
* Medical Office Manager
* Theatre Critic

#1 led to #2, which led to #3.  #4 came out of the blue, but is the most fun.

B. FOUR MOVIES YOU COULD WATCH OVER AND OVER:

* A Star Is Born (Judy Garland version).  But then you knew that already, right?  I've seen it more times than I can begin to count.
* Affair to Remember.  I'm a sucker for sloppy sentiment, and it doesn't get more sloppy or sentimental than this movie.  I can work up a good cry just seeing the last 5 minutes of that movie.
* Shadowlands.  Haven't seen this movie as often as the first two, because it doesn't come on TV all that much (and I don't think to pull out the DVD), but here's another sloppy sentimental movie that I really love.
* North by Northwest.  One of Hitchcock's best.

C. FOUR CITIES YOU’VE LIVED IN:

* San Francisco - I was born there and lived there till I was 18.
* Berkeley - I moved there when I enrolled in UC BerkeleyI lived in a dorm, then an apartment by myself, then an apartment with my friend Gerry, then I shared a house with Mike and Char, then moved into an apartment on my own, then into a different apartment after Walt and I were married
* Albany - Our first rental house.  Albany is just on the north side of Berkeley.  I was pregnant with Ned when we moved in and pregnant with Paul when we moved out.
* Oakland - Our first bought house.  We paid a whopping $18,000 for it and thought we were being terribly extravagant.
* Davis - Moved here in 1973.

(Yes, I know that's five, but since I've only lived in five cities in my life, I decided to list them all.   I've never lived more than 80 miles from where I was born.)

D. FOUR TV SHOWS YOU LOVE TO WATCH (Current, On-Air shows)

* West Wing (though what's going to happen now that John Spencer has died?)
* Desperate Housewives
* Lost
* The Daily Show

E. FOUR PLACES YOU’VE BEEN ON VACATION:

I'll do the more exciting ones--

* England - I never dreamed I'd ever visit a foreign country, because I thought that was something only rich people did. I remember being absolutely amazed when we actually set foot on British soil.
* Ireland - Going home again to the land I'd never visited before.   Amazing how thrilled I felt crossing the Irish sea and seeing Dublin off in the distance.   I've been to Ireland several times now and it still feels like going back to a familiar childhood.
* Scotland - We've been there twice, but the most fun was when we went to Orkney, 'cause who the heck ever goes to ORKNEY?
* Australia - My dream trip.  First time to travel out of the country by myself, "Thelma and Louise reunite" for more adventures in a different country.  I fell in love with the country, with the azure blue of the Indian ocean, the wild kangaroos in the bush, the wildflowers and the laid-back lifestyle.  I miss it.

F. FOUR WEBSITES YOU VISIT DAILY:

* Senior Net for discussion with people my own age, who, for the most part, can spell.
* The BonusRound discussion board to see what Ned's spouting off about now.
* Google Reader to see what new videos have been posted during the day.
* My own, of course (this one and the Blogspot one) to check guestbook and post new entries.

G. FOUR OF YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE RESTAURANTS:

* Joe's Crab Shack, in Old Sacramento - not because the food is so great, but because they serve crab and you can hardly get that in the Sacramento Valley!
* Greens - my favorite place to take guests for lunch in San Francisco.  It's a gourmet vegetarian restaurant under the auspices of the San Francisco Zen Center.
* Osaka Sushi - where we go for birthday dinners in Davis.
* The Spinnaker - a great fish restaurant in Sausalito, on San Francisco Bay, with terrific food (more great crab) and a gorgeous view of San Francisco.

H. FOUR OF YOUR FAVORITE FOODS:

* Fresh cracked dungeness crab, unadorned, but if it's hot, I might use a bit of melted butter.   Mostly, though, plain is best.
* Chocolate.  Of course.
* Roast leg of lamb
* Cheesecake, just about any kind

I. FOUR SCHOOLS YOU’VE ATTENDED:

* St. Brigid Grammar School, in San Francisco. 
* St. Vincent High School, in San Francisco.  (my favorite of the 4)
* University of San Francisco night school
* University of California, Berkeley

J. FOUR PLACES I’D RATHER BE RIGHT NOW:

* Having coffee at Hillary's Marina, on the Indian Ocean, watching the seagulls attack other people's lunches.
* Mayo Abby, County Mayo, Ireland, because we had such a wonderful time when we were there before.
* Cruising up the Inland Passage to Alaska (though not when it's the start of Winter!)
* Anywhere that does NOT have a stack of transcription in it.

K. FOUR THINGS YOU FIND YOURSELF SAYING A LOT:

* Hey, you guys...
* You want dinner? huh? You want dinner?  Dinner?  (I've been spending too much time with dogs lately!)
* I really have to get some transcription done.
* God, I hate that man.  (guess who!)
