I've been memed

Ed tagged me and since this is a fairly painless and amusing meme, here goes:

4 Jobs I'’ve had in my life:
  1. lab tech (what else do you do with an English degree except go and count the number of mice who die after being injected with various strengths of botulism toxin?)
  2. lecteur d'anglais
  3. arts education manager
  4. mommy
4 Movies I can watch over and over:
  1. The Big Lebowski
  2. Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe
  3. Persuasion
  4. Best in Show
4 TV Shows I love to watch:
  1. (Back in the happy days when we had HBO) The Wire and
  2. Curb Your Enthusiasm
  3. (Now that we are HBO-less) 24
  4. and Arrested Development (I know, I know the series finale just ran so I won't have this little corner of televised comfort to flee to anymore, damnit).
4 Places I have lived:
  1. Berkeley, CA
  2. Bordeaux, France
  3. Evanston, IL
  4. Ann Arbor, MI
4 Places I have been on holiday:
  1. Lake Superior Provincial Park
  2. The Jelly Belly Factory, thanks to the lobbying efforts of two small sugar-crazed creatures
  3. London: theatre, theatre and more theatre
  4. Cayo Costa, FL (the anti-Florida, an island where the only thing you can buy is ice)
4 of my favorite dishes:
  1. A really good Greek salad (not authentic Greek--I want lettuce too)
  2. Grilled Corn with Cheese and Cilantro
  3. Vietnamese Beer Snack with a cold beer
  4. Cold whole-grain toast with lots of butter, good preserves or marmalade and a strong cup of black tea with a splash of milk
4 Websites I visit daily:
  1. Bloglines (the only way to keep track of new posts on blogs)
  2. Cute Overload (a substitute for sunshine in this northern clime)
  3. Flickr
  4. New York Times
4 Places I would rather be right now:
  1. A clean, well-lit place with a comfortable chair and no one asking me for a beverage, or crayons, or for help going to the bathroom.
  2. Talking with a friend, sitting on her deck in Berkeley, with a cold beer.
  3. Watching a really good play.
  4. Hiking in some non-snowy mountains.
4 Bloggers I am tagging:
  1. Annie
  2. Julie
  3. Lynne
  4. anyone else who wants to reveal a little (not a lot) about themselves--go for it.

Kate, thank you! Just give me a day or two--I'm still recovering from this weekend's snowstorm.

Agh! I was going to tag you with the same meme! How funny :D

Love your 4 obsessions- mine are the same, especially this time of year with the snow storms.

Can't wait to explore your site some more.
