Four things

Good morning! Why is it that I get up bright and early on weekend mornings, but come Monday I am loathe to leave the comfort of my bed? Maybe because on the weekends I can lounge around in my pajamas and drink coffee while a cat sits on my lap. Cruel trick of relaxing is you have to be awake to enjoy it, I suppose.

So, this is one of those email/internet/website chain letter things that people always send you. I think we should start saying you have to fill this out and show it to at least ten people or else the little boy collecting business cards for a cancer cure will die, you will owe Bill Gates one million dollars, and you'll end up with a pile of mismatched dishtowels.

I remember this one time I got a chain letter (in the actual postal mail) and ya'll, I am so bad about even opening my mail in a timely fashion that I waited until after the expiration (read: The DOOM that should have befallen me for not sending out the hateful evil chain mail) and ergo, was free of both the chain mail curse and the obligation of doing anything to dislodge the curse.

Being tardy has its benefits.

Four jobs I’ve had:

* Wife (who says it isn't a job?)
* Art director
* Photo retoucher
* Drive-thru cashier at Burger King ("Ya'll want fries with that?")

Four movies I can watch over and over:

* Office Space
* The Bourne Identity & Bourne Supremacy
* The Princess Bride
* For whatever reason, whenever I turn on the TV, some part of one of the "Back to the Future" movies is ALWAYS playing on some channel, and if I happen to flip past it, I will stop, and waste approximately many minutes watching. So they go on the list... even though. You know. I admit things to ya'll I should keep inside, where the dorkiness lives.

Four places I have lived:

* Comfort, Texas
* Columbus, Mississippi
* Murfreesboro, Tennessee
* Studio City, California

Four television shows I love to watch:

* The Closer
* CSI (all of them, but especially CSI Miami because I love the ubercheesy David Caruso, and I want to be the Calleigh Duquesne character. Ya'll she is so smart! And pretty! And can kick your ass rightnow!)
* Gilmore Girls
* The Daily Show

Four places I have been on vacation:

* Middle Of Nowhere, Iceland
* Paris, France
* The Wigwam Hotel in Cave City, Kentucky (with one Lark H. Watts who refused to go into Mammoth Cave with me for reasons unknown, yet would happily sleep in a roadside attraction. Men.)
* Wroclaw, Poland

Four of my favorite dishes:

* Tacos -- the real kind, with soft corn tortillas and carne asada and knock-you-senseless hot salsa
* My dad's cornbread dressing with anything
* In-n-Out burger and fries and a large iced tea
* Artichoke spinach dip from Cheesecake Factory

Four websites I visit daily:

* Yahoo.com (I like the "Most Popular" feature for ranking their news stories)
* weather.com because I am a bonafide nerd
* sundayundies.com -- This is my best friend Jennifer's website. I like to go in and check on her and read her comments even when she hasn't posted in a week, then I get so excited when I see a new post. Even though I speak to her EVERY FREAKING DAY on the phone, I am maybe a stalker.
* pinkisthenewblog.com -- Duh. It's Goss Greatness.

Four places I would rather be right now:

* Hanging out with my parents having a cocktail OR, seeing as it is only 7 a.m., perhaps more coffee. Perhaps.
* In a cafe in Paris eating a pastry, drinking a coffee and watching the world walk by.
* On my patio with my girlfriends, catching up and drinking wine and wondering what that burned smell is.. oh! It's the dinner I was making ya'll. Whoops!
* Snuggling.

Four bloggers I am tagging:

* You.
* And you.
* And you, too!
* All ya'll are so tagged it is not even funny. But hey, it's better than that one chain mail where you have to send a dollar to five people on the list.

I have to go, now. Back To The Future 3 might be playing on cable somewhere...
