I've Been Memed!

Can I turn that word into a verb? I guess I did already. Final ruling from Price Waterhouse later today. Thanks to Ryan for the diversion (and Happy birthday, dude).

Four Jobs I've Had In My Life in LA:

1. Waiter. Bob's Big Boy
2. Telemarketer for a Chimney Sweeping outfit (I swear to God. Selling chimney sweeps over the phone in The Valley in August is what some might call impossible)
3. Starbucks barista (and I've never met one since who can hold my jock)
4. Newswriter. KNX 1070. My first real journalism job. The hours? 4 a.m. to noon on Saturday and Sunday.

Four Movies About LA I Could Watch Over And Over:

1. Swingers
2. Chinatown
3. Boogie Nights
4. Duece Bigelow, Male Gigilo (only for the gratutious shots of the apartment building where I once lived)

Four Places I've Lived All Over L.A. (With Food Memories From Each):

1. Studio City -- Carnitas burrito from Poquito Mas
2. Redondo Beach -- Fish and Chips, Hennessey's Pub
3. Canoga Park -- Double (Chili) Cheeseburger from Tommy Burger immediately following last call
4. Tarzana -- Garlic/Citrus/Onion Whole Chicken with rice and black beans from Versailles

Four LA-Themed Shows I Love(d) To Watch:

1. The White Shadow
2. 24
3. The OC
4. Six Feet Under

Four Places I Would Vacation At In LA:

1. Laguna Beach
2. Lake Arrowhead (close enough)
3. Bonaventure Hotel
4. Camping at San Onofre State Beach

Four LA-Based Websites I Visit Daily:

2. Wheaton
3. Dodger Blues

Four Of My Favorite Foods Found In LA:

1. Coconut Shrimp -- Cha Cha Cha
2. Pastrami Sandwich -- Canter's Deli

The Big Lebowski omission is inexcusable. I've had a great time reading your blog, but I must go now.

Joe - you nearly made me choke on my bunless boca burger (trying to shed those last 10 pounds, ya know). Versailles' garlic chicken with rice and beans, steamed yucca, and fried plantains for dessert is absolutely at the top of the 'Foods that Make me Want to Touch Myself' list. Un-friggin-believable. Of course, they've toned it down a little in recent years. It used to be that you'd have the whole back of the bus to yourself for a couple of days afterwards due to the deliciously lingering garlicky aroma...

That was cool being able to compare the same meme. I just read another one here:

Same city, different tastes. Your choices sounded better.
