Four Things

I’m using Meg’s open invitation (“You! If you feel like doing this, go for it!”) as an excuse to provide my own answers for the seemingly ubiquitous Four Things meme that’s been going around. This thing’s sort of become like the winter cold I have right now — reach out and touch a blog, any old blog, and you’re liable to catch it.

Matt Haughey writes, “it sort of came from LiveJournal and seemed to move from less trafficked blogs to more trafficked ones,” and Anil Dash is, “amazed this meme jumped from LiveJournal to the public-facing blogosphere,” and to that I say it is time for we less-trafficked (non-trafficked?) blogs to take back what we started! 

Viva la revolucion! Or something. Anyway, here are my answers.

Four jobs I’ve had:
1. Paper boy

* Kottke taunted the four people he tagged into doing it, but I trust there is no taunting necessary with you guys, right? Do you require taunting? Because I can taunt, man. If there’s one thing I can do, it’s taunt.
