I got tagged by the lovely Mainely Madge

So heres a meme for youyou:

4 Things

4 Jobs I’ve had:

I ran a latch-key program for my sisters out of my parents home non-grata.
I worked as a sales clerk at a hardware store.
I worked for the Minneapolis Dept. Of housing inspections with a disproportionate amount of drug-addled women in abusive relationships. Oh and my manager had facial hair which she shaved, but sadly, not often enough. I Was LET GO.
I waited tables in a college bar for 4 years.

4 Movies I Could and Do Watch Over and Over (and quote and quote and quote):

The Sound Of Music
Waiting for Guffman (I hate your ass face!)
Sense and Sensibility (same as Madge but for a different reason. The part where Emma Thompson bursts into tears makes me weep like a little baby every time)
Welcome to the Dollhouse, because I am convinced that Dawn Wiener's character is based on my adolescent years.

4 Places I have lived:

In an overcrowded room in my sorority house. I later realized how lame my sorority actually was.
Uptown Minneapolis in a great Urban Apartment
A tiny attic Apartment that was the catalyst for a major breakup.
A tiny hovel of an apartment on Lake Harriet owned by a slum Lord and previously occupied by a very dark, hairy, sanitarily challenged man.

4 TV Shows I Love:

The Sopranos
Little House on the Prairie
Law and Order
Sex and the City

4 Favorite Books:

A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving
East of Eden, Steinbeck
Me Talk Pretty One Day (or anything by David Sedaris)

Puerta Vallarta Mexico,
France & England (in one trip)

Ah Waiting for Guffman: "If kids have a Remains of the Day lunchbox, they're a lot happier."
I love Corky St. Claire almost as much as I love Napoleon Dynamite.

The Little House on the Prairie might explain the sorority thing. ;)

Oh, Elinor finally cracks! That's the real reason I love S&S. I just like that Piracy quote. It's the ultimate tissue-grabber.

Anyone can love Best in Show or Spinal Tap. It takes a true genius to appreciate Waiting for Guffman, GENIUS!

Aw! You tagged me!

And here I was, thinking, "What am I going to write today?"

Also: My favorite part of "Sense and Sensibility", aside from the scene you mentioned, is that the sisters have a well-chosen but limited wardrobe, that we get to see worn in different ways throughout the movie. So many costume dramas become a spectacular but vapid parade of past fashions; in SaS, the clothes take a part in telling the story of two well-bred women with extremely limited means.

All right, I'm done dorking it up. Now, off to finish my tag!

Fascinating! All of it. I actually haven't ever watched all of Waiting for Guffman, although I know Best in Show and A Mighty Wind by heart. And I think that not only should we drink a lot together, but we should also go out to eat. Same tastes.
