Four Things Meme

I love memes. So when I saw this over at Fizzy Thoughts, I decided to give it a try.

Four jobs I've had in my life:
1. Cashier
2. Office Assistant
3. Legal Secretary
4. Archives Assistant (library)

Four books I would recommend/read over and over:
1. Anything by H.P. Lovecraft
2. T.S. Eliot
3. The Other City
4. 2666

Four places I've lived:
1. California (born there)
2. Pennsylvania
3. Upstate New York
4. Slightly downstate New York

Four places I've been:
1. Florida
2. New Mexico
3. Canada
4. Mexico

Four of my favorite drinks:
1. Coffee
2. Water
3. Organic skim milk
4. Coffee

Four of my favorite foods:
1. Pasta
2. Seafood
3. "Dirt" (crushed Oreos, chocolate pudding, gummy worms)
4. Organic

Four places I would rather be right now:
1. Southern Italy (Amalfi, Sorrento, Capri)
2. Southern Greece
3. Paris
4. A funky indie coffee shop

Four things that are very special in my life:
1. Reading
2. Music (European metal!)
3. Independence
4. The sheer number of funky indie coffee shops within reasonable distance of my apartment.

Four bloggers I hope would do this meme:
Whoever feels like it.

Softdrink: I was born in California but moved to Pennsylvania when I was three. I remember hardly anything about it. The closest I've been to the West Coast since then is New Mexico.

Mel u: Lovecraft is public domain so all of his works are available online at various places, including Project Gutenberg. My favorite is "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" but it's really long - more of a novella than a short story. If you only read one Lovecraft in your life, I strongly recommend his most famous work, "The Call of Cthulhu." Other great ones include "The Colour Out of Space" and "The Whisperer in Darkness."

Jill: Dare I ask what that is? I

thanks very much for the tip on Lovecraft-I found a very good web page dedicated to Lovecraft that has links to lots of his stories-also I found a web page where you can hear or download audio books of some of his works-I listed to four short works this morning-I will take your suggestion and read "The Call of Cthulhu" very soon-maybe today
