And then there were four...

My wife gave birth to the newest addition to our family. Everyone is in good health, but in dire need of a good night's sleep.

I got tagged (kinda) with another meme from a fellow exile , Kirsten, here in Montreal. Though she hails from the southern hemisphere.

It's called the Four Meme and it's pretty darn tough to boil down some of these categories to just four. Here are my responses:

Four jobs you have had in your life:
Architect, Engineer, Salesperson, Teamster

Four movies you could watch over and over:
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Amelie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Night on Earth

Four places you have lived:
Chicago; Montreal; Versailles, France; and Champaign, IL

Four TV shows you love to watch:
Amazing Race, Survivor, Law & Order, Seinfeld

Four places you have been on vacation:
Maui, Santorini, Prague, Yellowstone

Four websites you visit daily:
Before blogs: CNN, Chicago Tribune, ESPN, and Mt St Helens
After blogs: Daily Dose of Architorture, Metroblogging Montreal, Ni Vu Ni Connu, Immutably Me

Four of your favorite foods:
Chicago style pizza, fajitas, burritos as big as your head, Bar Louie sandwiches

Four places you'd rather be:
Other than here or Chicago, on a beach or snorkeling in Maui, Santorini at sunset, a cafe in Paris, travelling by train through Europe.

Four albums you can't live without:
Ultrachilled #1, Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me by the Cure, Front by Front by Front 242, The Mirror Conspiracy by Thievery Corporation

Four vehicles that I've owned:
1993 Nissan Sentra SE-R, 1979 Honda CB 400 motorcycle, a Volvo, a Trek bicycle.

I tag:
Paolo (Immutably Me)
Martine (Ni Vu Ni Connu)
Sadia (Random Acts by Design)
Vila (The Smoking Section)

Hey, congratulations! That would make the little tyke an Aquarius-Capricorn cusp, btw... :-)

As for the meme, it'll have to wait until after the deadline I am presently cowering under passes. Hell, I shouldn't even be doing this!

Frank said...

Yes, I was kinda hoping for an Aquarius because I already have two Capricorns close to me.

Creative work always needs periodic mental recreation breaks. Thank you for stopping by. The meme can wait.

Martine said...

Memes scare me, like chain letters. I'll see if I can overcome my fear. ;-)

Martine, Don't sweat it if you're not interested in doing it. It was really meant as a suggestion and tip-of-the-hat to some of the blogs (and people) I enjoy. Plus I liked the questions in this one.
