Playing tag: four things
Debi recently tagged me to play the four things tag/meme, but then her blog mysteriously ate her four things post before I could get started on mine. So I Googled "four things tag" and found the meme here. Odd that a blog dedicated strategic PR would post this kind of thing. But that just goes to show you that, yes, even some of us lowly PR/marcomm folk have highly evolved senses of humor.

Anyway, on to my four things:

Four jobs I've had
Corn detassler
Bus boy
Newspaper reporter

Four movies I can watch over and over
Raising Arizona. The best of the Coen Brothers' many masterpieces. Also the best movie intro ever. Brilliant dialogue.

Airplane! "I am seriously. And don't call me Shirley."

The Blues Brothers.

A tie for No. 4: either National Lampoon's Animal House or Young Frankenstein.

Four TV shows I love to watch
Arrested Development, which, sadly, is now history.

The Office. I hope it doesn't jump the shark this season. So far, so good. Plus, Dwight blogs. Too bad Michael doesn't.

My Name Is Earl. I like it, but the old karma joke is running out of steam.

ESPN SportsCenter.

Four places I've been on vacation
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Rocky Mountain National Forest

Four favorite dishes
A thick slab of prime rib, medium rare, with au jus and horseradish. Not horseradish sauce. Give he the horseradish finely ground to slather all over the meat.

My father-in-law's special recipe baby back ribs, with just the right touch of Greek seasoning in the rub.

Steak fajitas, with real tortillas.

Chocolate cheesecake from A Slice of Pie in Rolla, Missouri, with cherries and whipped cream. Yummy!

Four Web sites I visit daily
I don't always visit these daily, but try to visit them often:

UMR Visions Blog
Jordon Cooper
100 records

Four places I'd rather be
Walking along on a beach somewhere, holding my sweetheart's hand.
At the gym.
At home.
Outside -- even if it is 28 degrees. I'm burning up in here.

Four bloggers I am tagging
Rudy Carrasco
Randy McRoberts
