4-point meme

I've been avoiding this for some time, but now I can use it to delay the real article until tomorrow. =)

Four jobs I have had in my life:
-- grunt-work do-anything slave at a small oil company (relaxed job, cool and intelligent people)
-- Home Depot lumber associate ("lumber" officially, but sometimes I ran 3 departments, two of which I knew nothing about)
-- Hollywood Video manager (if any job will make you hate people in general, this is it)
-- builder of patios, decks, pergolas, etc (working out in the sun's great if you can do it at your own pace)

Four Movies I have watched over and over:
Fierce Creatures
The Hunt for Red October
The Ghost and the Darkness

Four places I have lived:
Spring, Texas (nearly all my life)
San Antonio, Texas
Slidell, Louisiana (I was born in New Orleans)
Mobile, Alabama (some summers)

Four Places I have been on vacation:
London (cool town)
Rome (not so cool)
Ireland (my favorite)
Perdido Key, Florida (formerly home to my grandparents' beachhouse)

Four of my favorite foods:
fried alligator
a juicy T-bone steak
beef fajitas
mint chocolate-chip ice cream

Four favorite drinks:
Barq's root beer
sweet tea
the leftover milk after a bowl of cereal


  1. Okay, I have to ask.
    What does Fried Alligator taste like?

  2. It's somewhere between chicken and seafood. Most reptiles taste kinda like chicken, as do frog legs.

    Gator is very lean meat, so it has to be cooked right or it will be chewy. Cooked right, it's got the texture of shrimp. Add some hot sauce and it's awesome.

    It's hard to find outside Louisiana though.
