La Triviata -- or, Lightening up: trivial quatrains about meeeeee

Okay, I guess anything with "quatrain" in the title kind of defeats the meaning of "lightening up"... but from the irreplaceable La Shawn Barber I steal the idea of posting groups of four triviata about myself. Because I know you all come here to learn more about me!!! (Like I "know" that Hillary Clinton would make a great president. In other words, in the sense of "not!")

And I'm so too-serious that I have to disclaimerize that these are light, off-the-top-of-my-head, and not meant to be exhaustive nor exclusive.

Four Jobs I’ve Had in My Life:

  • Pastor
  • Private investigator
  • Cook at Bob's Big Boy in Glendale, California
  • Trout-fly maker
Four Movies I Could Watch Over and Over, and Have:

  • Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring (literally about seventeen times in the theater; and no, I've never done that before nor since)
  • Forbidden Planet
  • The Quiet Man
  • Spider Man II
Four Places I Have Lived [depending on how you define "living"]:

  • Glendale, California
  • Trona, California
  • Fullerton, California
  • Sacramento, California
Four TV Shows I Love To Watch:

  • 24 (recent addict)
  • Babylon 5
  • Buffy, the Vampire Slayer (sorry; tell no one)
  • Angel (see previous)

Four Places I Have Been On Vacation:

  • The Bishop-Mammoth Lakes area, California
  • Scotland
  • Seattle area, Washington
  • Las Vegas, Nevada

Four Websites I Visit Daily [besides this one and Pyromaniacs!]:

Four Favorite Foods:

  • Steak barbecued over a wood fire, outdoors in the Eastern Sierra
  • Seafood (virtually any)
  • Crispy fried chicken, lots of yummy batter (Winco is the best store-bought, Col. Sanders' extra-crispy [not the original recipe extra-soggy] is the best best big-chain, and Two Sisters is just about the best I've had, ever, anywhere, period)
  • Lamb the way my dear, late mother made it: battered and baked, with garlic cloves under the skin

Four Places I Would Rather Be Right Now:

  • Heaven, rejoicing forever in the presence of God, freed from my flesh and the dangers and snares of this God-hating world
  • The Bishop-Mammoth Lakes area, California
  • Scotland
  • New Zealand, maybe?

Four People I Am Tagging With This Meme:

  • Discoshaman (maybe it will get him back to blogging?)
  • Pecadillo (because his is sure to make my list look serious, too-sober, and stodgy, and is likely to make everyone forget about that whole Buffy/Angel-thing)
  • Libbie
  • JollyBlogger
