Four Things: The Meme

Ladies and gentlemen, I've been meme-ed! My good friend Todd Mason at the Sweet Freedom blog has sent me this meme entitled four things. Four things of what? See below. (Alas, I couldn't come up with four things for every category, which shows how bad I am at this sort of thing).

Four Movies You Can See Over and Over
It's A Wonderful Life (everything I believe and aspire to be can be found in this film)
Jaws (No movie has had as visceral an impact on me; I can't see footage of a shark without cringing)
Fools Rush In (romantic comedy with Matthew Perry and Salma Hayek; one of the first movies my wife and I saw when we were dating)
Tommy Boy (starring the late Chris Farley; plain old stupid fun)

Four Places You Haved Lived

Philadelphia, PA
Bellmawr, NJ
That's it!

Four TV Shows You Love to Watch
Lost (this past season kicked ass!)
Pushing Daisies (ironically named; RIP, piemaker!)
Batman: The Brave and the Bold (more fun than many comic books these days)
That's it!

Four Places You Have Been On Vacation
Seaside Heights, New Jersey (small shore town; I have family there)
Niagara Falls (slowly I turned, step by step, inch by inch...)
Walt Disney World (great fun, and food everywhere!)
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (quiet, but that's not a bad thing)

Four of Your Favorite Foods
fried chicken cutlet (just had some tonight)
chicken and dumplings (yes, I really like chicken)
Papa John's pizza (hell yeah!)
country biscuits and gravy (if I lived in the South I'd be dead)

Four Web Sites You Visit Daily
my own blog (somebody has to read it)
Comic Geek Speak (fun podcast and active message board)
Twitter (I've partaken of the Twitter Kool-Aid)
YouTube (better than television, at least sometimes)

Four Places You Would Rather Be
In bed (I agree with Todd)
the beach at 7pm (better than during the day, usually)
downtown Philly, where I work anyway, but to be there when I don't have to work (so I can take my time and drink it all in)
In bed (it's so nice I said it twice)

Four Things to Do Before You Die
lose weight (me and 300 million other people)
get enough rest so I don't feel dead when I'm alive (no small feat, that)
establish a regular routine for each day
learn to drive (I'm 34 years old, and I don't drive)

Four Things You Wish You Were Reading for the First Time
Watchmen (Hey, I just did read that for the first time)
The Phantom Tollbooth (loved the movie when I was a kid, a sophisticated children's story)
Frankenstein (it blew me away when I read it out of high school)
The Wizard of Oz (so different from the movie, but so enjoyable in its own right, which is only fair, since, you know, it came first)

Tag Four People You Believe Will Respond
How about my four registered blog followers? Karswell, Rokk Krinn, Chris Illuminati, and Michele at Reader's Respite. I throw down the gauntlet!

Always glad to read these, even if I won't jump on every meme-quiz that comes along (one reason I stay off FaceBook, etc.). Thanks, Brian!

(When you've only lived two places, you get to lie outrageously. And do I gather correctly that you don't do, say, THE VENTURE BROS. on television?)

Can't say I've seen the brothers Venture, but with the DVR, I can certainly check them out.
