Meme of Fours

mapgirl at Midwest Confidential tagged me with the meme of fours, so here goes:

Four jobs I've had:
Construction worker
Worker at a laminated top company (I may have made your countertop)
Movie theater usher and concessionaire (Eastland Mall Cinemas in Charlotte)
Doorman, booker, co-owner of a night club

Four movies I can watch over and over:
Ghostbusters
Monty Python and The Holy Grail (seems to be a common answer!)
The Blues Brothers
The Big Sleep (the Bogie version of course)

Four television shows I love to watch:
(I'll take this to be current shows)
My Name is Earl
Numb3rs
Invasion
Sportscenter

Four favorite dishes:
Pizza in all of its wonderful varieties
Enchilada-style tempeh burritos from Margaret's Cantina
Anything from Chilli Pepper's in Kill Devil Hills
The veggie quesadilla from the long-gone Papagayo's in Chapel Hill

Four websites I visit daily:
I won't count Google since it's my startpage
Blue Ridge Blog
Durham Morning Herald
Comics.com
Talking Points Memo
(there are many, many more)

Four places I've been on vacation:
Walt Disney World in Orlando
The Outer Banks of NC
Blowing Rock, NC
Washington, DC

Four places I'd rather be:
Tough since I'm living in my favorite place in the world
On a boat in the marina at Shallowbag Bay in Manteo, NC
Riding the Tower of Terror at Disney-MGM Studios
Sitting in the big outdoor hottub at the spa at Grove Park Inn
Key West (never been, but I can't help but think I'd love it)

Four bloggers I'm tagging (not sure who's already done it, so fuggitaboutit if you've already been tagged):

See, I didn't know you had been a club owner! There must be some interesting stories there.

Also, it's psychic that you mention Grove Park Inn, because I was just visiting their web site as a possible getaway later this year.

Thanks for playing our little game. I promise not to pester you with such things again.

Hey, I don't mind getting tagged - they're fun! (And I think you owed me one anyway).

Give Grove Park some SERIOUS consideration - the spa is awesome (I don't care for the treatment stuff - I just hit the hot tubs and pools and saunas and steam rooms and... and...)

Plus some really really good food, great Arts-and-Crafts decor, really good service (and you might get the room that F. Scott Fitzgerald took for a season - over the carriage entrance so he could check out the talent as it came in).

this is going to sound silly but what does it mean to be "taged"

and meme of fours is a good way to learn something about a person. like your movies, never seen thoes tv shows but then I dont see much tv. chilie peppers is a good place to eat but I like jolly rogers better (I like the junk hanging off the celing) and 25 years ago when I lived in Charlotte I think I went to the cenima you worked at to see "the rocky horror picture show" and no I was not dressed up.

its a small world

Tagged as in "Tag! You're it!" - it's your turn to spill in *your* blog. As you said - a chance to get to know a little more about folks in the blogger community.

Probably South Park Mall's theaters for Rocky Horror - I saw it there at least a dozen times. Hopefully you at least brought a water pistol, newspaper and toast if you didn't dress up! Our theater had a long run of George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead", which attracted a huge crowd of bikers every weekend - I'm guessing some of the nuance of the film was lost on most of them.

When I saw the RHPS it was on a bet from my brother and some of his buds. I was a bit uneasy and when I saw the folks in the line and the stuff that went on inside the uneasiness did not go away. (I was a catholic school naive prude). I regret that I did not loosen up and just go with the flow but it is an experience I will never forget.

I will work on that tag.
