technological advancements in vocabulary

I've been "tagged" by greensatya and since I am forever greedy for reasons to procrastinate what I should be doing, I'm happy for the invitation to take a break.

4 jobs you've had in your life:
  1. produce seller (sold fruits and veggies to Chris Farley whenever he was on a diet--he was an asshole)
  2. coffee barista (I loved the coffee as much as the people! That was a great job/s)
  3. floral designer (for 9 years--too long!)
  4. teacher (my favorite and current job)
4 movies you would watch over and over:
  1. Herald and Maude (Herald inspired me to learn banjo. I want to grow up to be like Maude)
  2. When Harry Met Sally (As a matter of fact, I watched it last night!)
  3. Born into Brothels (my newest favorite--heartbreaking and inspiring all at once)
  4. Gorillas in the Mist (Dian Fossey is one of my heroes)
4 places you have lived:
  1. Eugene, Oregon (my first big move across the country at 18)
  2. In a hogan in the high desert of Arizona
  3. In a 10' x 12' shack with no water or electricity in the middle of nowhere
  4. Madison, Wisconsin (a little bit on accident, but returned repeatedly)
4 tv shows you love to watch:
  1. Free Style
  2. Animal Planet (which show? I don't know--the good ones)
  3. Friends (ok, ok, I admit it!)
  4. Northern Exposure (dang, why don't they produce that one anymore???)
(note: two months ago I got cable for the first time in 13 years. I admit, I'm still tv ignorant but, in my book, that's a good thing.)

4 places you have been on vacation:
  1. India (but I think I was there for too long to call it a vacation)
  2. Malaysia (a short, but happy accident)
  3. England, Ireland, France (in 1999)
  4. Italy (for our honeymoon in 2003)
4 of your favorite foods:
  1. Samosas (oh--I'm sooooooo hungry for samosas!!!)
  2. Malai Kofta (why didn't I learn how to cook Indian food???)
  3. Potato chips (my true weakness in life)
  4. Dilly beans (hot dill pickled string beans--a family recipe that I've been addicted to since I was a kid)
4 places you would rather be right now:
  1. India (do I have to be picky?)
  2. Costa Rica (lounging in a hammock overlooking the ocean from a tree house, reading a good book)
  3. France (drinking a glass of wine or sipping an espresso)
  4. Gallery hopping in New York (art inspiration!)
Tag--You're it!!

Thanks for playing the tag.

You had rather interesting jobs in your life.
Samosa, Malai Kofta - I think you get these things in US. Heard that Indian food is really popular there.

The vacation plan in Costa Rica seems so exciting !

Since I live in a smallish town I unfortunately cannot get either samosas or malai kofta here. :(
I'm in luck this week though--my sister is bringing me some from the city where she lives, 4 hours away. Indian food is becoming quite popular ...but in small town midwestern USA, it's still hard to find. Maybe that's a good thing--I'd get fat from eating too much otherwise!

Congratulations on being able to stop at just four of anything!

I'll probably be skipping some of the questions and over-responding to the rest, but not in one post and not in any predictable fashion.

It's not that I intend to be so uncooperative, but I can be difficult to lead.
