I was tagged by Dan Saffer to continue a meme (noun: an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture) of four lists of four things about me, which provides a break from writing yet another post about design! I’ve never been tagged to continue a meme before. It’s very exciting. Like receiving an Oscar, I imagine.

Okay, here goes…

Four jobs I’ve had in my life:

  • McDonald’s in Lancaster, England, where my American accent was a novelty at the “till”
  • Reporter for United Press International in Washingon D.C., where I spent a lot of time hanging about the U.S. Courthouse stalking Monica Lewinsky
  • Soccer trainer for Curt Onalfo Soccer, working with boys and girls ages 4 to 14
  • Editor for Computer Sciences Corporation, where I edited huge outsourcing contracts being submitted to the likes of Raytheon and NASA

Dan had “Four TV Shows I DVR” next, but as I do not DVR, or watch four shows, I’ll defer to the original post and substitute the following…

Four favorite foods:

  • Cake
  • Cookies
  • Beer (liquid bread)
  • Tortilla chips

Four places I’ve been:

  • Zakynthos, Greece
  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Barcelona, Spain
  • St. Lucia

Four music artists I’m listening to right now:

  • Architecture in Helsinki: Heart it Races (Trizzy’s Rusty Tin Can Mix)
  • Battles: Atlas
  • Aesop Rock: None Shall Pass
  • The Diggs: It’s Just Like You Say

Alrightythen. I suppose the thing to do is pass it on to four people and hope they read my blog: Eric Niu, Dennis Eusebio, Jeff Howard, Brandon Schauer.
