Updates and Fours


I decided to post today and tomorrow's update together right now (ie. early). Thank you to everyone who helped out with pictures and Joao_Caldara for the cover shot of his work. Also, I hope that by posting this publicly, people will stop forwarding it to me (I don't mean that in a complainy way!!!). I think it's about time I answered, given how many times I've received it (hope that's not bad luck).

Four Things About Me
Four things you may or may not have known about me, in categories in no particular order.

Four jobs I have had in my life:

  1. Ball Diamond Liner
  2. Jeweller
  3. Programmer
  4. Farmhand

Four movies I have watched over and over:

  1. Top Gun
  2. The Breakfast Club
  3. Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    (Laugh it up, it's just because I spent a long time with a TV by my computer and I watched the movies on TBS).

  4. Dawn of the Dead

Four places I have lived:

  1. Philadelphia, PA
  2. Miramichi, NB
  3. Victoria, BC
  4. Big Island (Demorestville), ON

Four TV shows I love to watch:

  1. Survivor
  2. Kenny Vs Spenny
  3. Daily Show / Colbert Report
  4. Ali G

Four places I have been on vacation:

  1. Namibia
  2. Argentina
  3. Germany
  4. Jamaica

Four websites I visit daily

  1. ModBlog
  2. IAM
  3. Sorry, I really am that boring and/or busy!

Four of my favourite foods:

  1. Sushi
  2. Beer
  3. Martinis
  4. Water

Four places I would rather be right now:

  1. In orbit
  2. Mars station
  3. A lush alien planet
  4. On a sailboat

Four friends I think will respond to this forward:

OK, I'm breaking the rules here. Normally you'd list four people here and the instructions continue:

Now, here's what you're supposed to do… and please do not spoil the fun. Hit forward, delete my name and type in your answers. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know INCLUDING the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little known facts about those who know you. Remember to send it back to the person who sent it to you (or “censor” the suggestion of a previous interviewee).

To keep it interesting, I propose the following:

In addition, please create a new category (type), and remove one of the existing ones. That is, remove one of the list questions with one of your own. This keeps the list changing, and lets people take a “pass” on questions they can't easily answer.

Here's my new list:

Four skills you have that people might be surprised about:
  1. Excellent goat milker
  2. Very good at Vulcan (as in Star Trek) hand gesture tricks
  3. Can do complete-length movie karoake of Heathers
  4. Pretty good at braiding hair

Feel free to use that idea or not. But I hope I'm not spoiling the fun. I'm posting this about me here, and I hope that maybe people will reply to me with their answers or post them (I really do enjoy reading them even if I don't have time to reply). And don't forget to send your list to other friends!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
