Meme of 4

Orthomom tagged me with the latest meme. Sorry it's taken so long to put this together Mom, but I've been kinda busy lately. By now, for all I know Orthomom has already started another 'meme' which is ricocheting across cyberspace.

Here goes:

4 jobs you've had in your life:
  1. I worked in a crystal & china warehouse. You know what they say about an elephant in a china store? Well, it's true.
  2. Mashgiach/Baker in a farfel manufacturer. One of the toughest, yet fun jobs. Comes to teach you that no matter how hard the job, if you have someone fun with you it's all good. Speaking of which, if anyone found a Band-Aid (it may have been a little mangled from the mixers) in their Streits, Seasons, Heimishe's mine. Bon Apetit.
  3. Waiter at a large borscht-belt hotel for a Yom Tov.
  4. Advertising Agency
4 movies you could watch over and over: While I enjoy watching movies, I'm really bad at remembering most of them. Here's some that come to mind:
  1. The Godfather. Any of them
  2. Scarface
  3. Dumb & Dumber. Now that one I watched many a time.
  4. I'm having trouble with a 4th, so here's one I recently watched for a second time: The Big Lebowski. Classic.
"Saturday, Donny, is Shabbos, the Jewish day of rest. That means that I don't work, I don't get in a car, I don't ride in a car, I don't pick up the phone, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit don't fucking roll! Shomer shabbos!"
4 places you've lived:
  1. Miami
  2. Jerusalem
  3. Toronto
  4. Queens and Brooklyn, New York
4 TV shows you love to watch: I wouldn't call what I have at home a TV. It barely gets a handful of channels and I haven't turned it one in like a year. Who has the time?? But here goes:
  1. Seinfeld HAS to be here.
  2. Recently got into Curb Your Enthusiasm. Tied here is Family Guy.
  3. I liked Alias when I watched. Is it still on?
  4. Everyone Loves Raymond.
  5. Married With Children. I needed 5.
I have to mention some older classics like Cheers, Simpsons, Gilligans Island, The Honymooners, NYPD Blue...

4 places you've been on vacation:
  1. Aruba
  2. I must confess that my Yeshiva years in Israel should probably be classified as 'vacation'
  3. California
  4. I really need to get out more.
4 websites you visit daily:
  1. My Yahoo
  2. Gmail
  3. Haaretz
  4. A handful of my favorite blogs
4 of your favorite foods: I'm going to have trouble with this one. I really don't have favorite foods and am not much of a food connoisseur. Creme brulee?! What the hell is THAT?!
  1. Does coffee count?
  2. A good steak
  3. Grilled Salmon
  4. I've recently acquired the taste for sushi. After feeling left out for years, I love it now!
4 places you'd rather be: Another tough one. What IS it with these questions? After answering the question earlier, I'll just say I'd rather be on vacation. Any vacation.

4 books you'll read over and over again: I read a lot of books. Mostly fiction novels when I get my hands on them but occasionally books of substance as well. Like movies, I usually don't remember which I liked better than others. I can't say I'd read any over and over unless I'm desperate (no magazines in the can maybe?)
  1. Most of Nelson DeMille's books have been really good
  2. The DaVinci Code was really good. No shocker there, right?
  3. Since this is a J-Blog, I'm compelled to say any of Slifkin's books, but not really.
  4. Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. All of them are great.
There. Done.

Being that I'm getting into this late in the game and that everyone's probably been tagged already I won't tag anyone. If someone actually reads this and feels like they want in, go ahead. I did it on my own last time. If you really want, let me know and I'll post an update tagging you.

Ok, here's a comment:

Why did I think you live in 5T? You didn't list that on your meme.

Why did you think I lived in the 5T's? (not that I don't). The meme only says to list 5 places I've lived, not where I live now.
