That Four Things Thing ... Revisited

So, Heather Webber over at the Little Blog of Murder just tagged me with the Four Things Thing, and since a) last time I was tagged I had my two-year-old fill it out instead, and b) I have a strange love for filling things like this out, I am doing it again, this time for myself.

Here goes:

4 movies I would watch over and over:

Regular visitors already know about my obsession with Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and the five-hour BBC Pride & Prejudice miniseries, so here are some new ones in addition to those:

1. Strictly Ballroom ("Vivir con miedo es como vivir a medias.") (If I'm spelling that wrong, nobody tell me.)
2. Bend it Like Beckham (Jonathan Rhys-Myers AND grrrl power. What a combination!)
3. O Brother Where Art Thou?
4. Whale Rider (Grrrl power and whales! Yeah!)

4 places I’ve lived:

1. Seoul, Korea
2. Baton Rouge, LA
3. Falls Church, VA
4. Home of the Big Hairy Spiders, FL

4 TV shows I love to watch:

1. American Idol
2. Bones
3. The OC
4. The Daily Show

4 places I have been on vacation:

1. Nearly getting bent with Jose as we chased a giant manta ray while scuba diving in Fiji.
2. Visiting the Lord of the Rings film sites on New Zealand's North Island.
3. Touring Venice and Florence, Italy, in an ugly black skirt with a choir, just after high school.
4. Hanging out with family in Honduras.

4 web sites I visit daily:

1. Alternet.com
2. Amazon.com or Powellsbooks.com
3. The Happy Feminist
4. Google (I stole that from Heather's list--I DO visit Google every day, bless them.)

4 of my favorite foods:

1. Goong Phuket at DC's Tara Thai
2. That spicy crawfish pasta thing at Copeland's (the REAL Copeland's in Louisiana, not the chains, which are a complete horror show).
3. Bread pudding at Mulate's in Louisiana. (It's almost a religion. No one believes me until they try it....)
4. Belgian chocolate (Makes US chocolate taste like brown wax.)


4 places I would rather be right now:

1. Sawing Florida off the continent and watching it float away, spiders and all.
2. At my husband's retirement ceremony from the Navy (T minus two years and counting!)
3. Wrapping up my Pulitzer acceptance speech. (Heh.)
4. On the phone with my agent discussing my latest seven-figure contract. : D

Tag 4 people I think will respond:
I think everyone has done this already, but if you read this and haven't, consider yourself tagged.

I had to do this a while ago. I didn't have a blog then so I did it and didn't have to share it. LOL.
You've been some cool places! I love the ugly black skirt reference. I visited Vienna, Austria and had to wear sky blue prom type dress with poofy sleeves. Yuck!!! Choir outfits are rarely fashion brags.
So why do you want to carve Florida off the continent? Just curious.

I'd love to go to Vienna, Jen, even in a horrible prom dress. We went to Salzburg, as well as Italy, but I thought I'd limit myself to one country per line. Salzburg was beautiful.

I did a blog ages ago about the giant spiders and horrible bugs in Florida, and that's the main reason I want to saw it off. Oh, and the bad drivers....
