  1. Why I used to be a guest blogger:
    Four of your favorite foods:
    In-N-Out #1, animal style, no tomato
    Burrito, super, carne asada, black beans, no guac, sour cream (a touch)
    Les fruits de mer
    Creme brulee (done correctly)
    Four movies you could watch over and over: (Note this list contains only one of my picks for four best movies.)
    The Best Years of Our Lives
    Galaxy Quest
    The Godfather, Part II
    Goldfinger
    Four jobs you’ve had in your life:
    Computer programmer
    System administrator
    Magazine writer (computer software)
    (Only had three jobs. Sad, huh?)
    Four places you’ve lived:
    Binghamton, NY
    New Haven, CT
    New York, NY
    San Francisco, CA
    Four TV shows you love to watch:
    House, MD
    World Poker Tour
    Nova (when about hard science, rarer and rarer)
    C-SPAN (less and less)
    Four websites you visit daily:
    My Yahoo
    Atrios
    Sideshow
    /.
    Four places you’d rather be:
    Paris
    Symi
    Marigot, Saint-Martin (25 years ago)
    The Womb

  2. You’re giving me some stiff competition Richard. If you think three jobs is sad, last time I counted I have had over thirty brilliant careers.
    If I knew more about Symi, I may have chosen it instead of Australia.

  3. Scratch Aliens. I forgot about Cool Hand Luke. Several other Paul Newman movies could have made the list. The Swimmer, The Hustler and Absence of Malice come to mind.

  4. Symi is wonderful. I spent only ten days there, but it was exactly what a Greek island is supposed to be. No crowds (if you play it right), perfect little Med beaches, some terrific views, good taverna food. Not the place if you want night life. At least it was still nice eight years ago.
    And I lied about the movies. When I started typing the list, I was pretty sure that only The Best Years of Our Lives would be on both my “best” and “watch over and over” lists. Godfather 2 got on the list after a lot of searching for a fourth entry. (It is of course in my top four “best” movies also.)

  5. I like The Verdict. Perfect for aging Newman. James Mason great as “the prince of fucking darkness”.

  6. Upon further consideration, fresh raspberries with creme anglaise replaces creme brulee (even when done well). That is all.

  7. Movies list that doesn’t include at least one Bogart flick can’t be legit.
    Also One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest not mentioned?

    Movies I watch over and over…
    The Blues Brothers
    African Queen
    Cool Hand Luke
    Cuckoos Nest
    Braveheart
    Wizard of Oz
    Gone With the Wind
    Forest Gump

  8. Four foods:

    Stone Crab with Mustard Garlic Aoli
    Ceasar Salad (done correctly – incl. anchovie)
    Prime aged Porterhouse steak (did I say PRIME?)
    Dry Brut Champagne (pick one of many great makers, Dom, Cristal etc.)

  9. Serenity, Serenity, Serenity and Serenity

    I have to modify my responses to the List Of Fours meme. If you’ve ever been concerned about STF readers, check out these responses, and all of your darkest fears will be confirmed. I rented Serenity from blockbusters last night….

  10. fodderunit makes a good point. It’s impossible to pick only four movies. I could probably pick my four favorite movies of each decade since the fifties and I’m not even a movie buff.
