In the Beginning...

...there was only me, and Velvel, and occasionally MOChassid would drop by. And then, Safranit left a comment and after a while I figured out that some of my old friends had found the blog.

So for old time's sake, I'm responding to the meme she tagged me with. Because you all know how much I love these things.

4 jobs I've had

Video Store Clerk
Used Van Lot Employee

4 movies I can watch over and over

Can I count Star Wars Episodes III-VI as all 4? No? Well, here are 3 more:

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Alien + Aliens (but all the rest suck-- clue to Siggy Weaver--don't let the French anywhere near your franchise!)
The Hunt for Red October (Ach! Sean Connery as a Lithuanian!)
That Thing You Do (ok, that's five, but it's such a great movie)

4 places I have lived

The Bronx

4 television shows I love to watch

Battlestar Galactica (new one)
Heroes (Save the Cheerleader, Save the World!)
Get Smart (FINALLY coming out on DVD!!!)

4 places I've been on vacation

Miami Beach (every year while my Grandma was alive)
Acapulco (almost drowned and got a nasty case of diarrhea--now that's a vacation)
Washington D.C.
Wisconsin Dells

4 favorite dishes

General Tsoa's Chicken
Eggplant Parmesan

4 websites I visit daily

Leaving off blogs...

Google.com (it's my home page, for crying out loud)



Oh FINE! All my blogs!

4 places I would rather be right now

Orbiting Saturn

4 bloggers to tag

No thanks, I can't afford to lose any more friends...

Heroes has become my guilty pleasure...until the Apprentice returns.

I'll visit you in Strongbadia.

Jack's Shack said...

The last time I was in Strongbadia there was a terrible strike. The sanitation workers just upped and left, what a mess.

Safranit said...

Does this mean we aren't friends anymore? :(

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

Interesting to learn this stuff about you. Nice meme.

PsychoToddler said...

Safranit: all scores are now settled.

fudge said...

yes yes, that is all very well, but how about 4 Foods I Cannot Eat:

1. Cheese
2. Chinese food
3. Spinach
4. Coffee

PsychoToddler said...

For me that would be

1. Spinach
2. Nuts
3. Cholent (oy vey)
4. Apples

Did the PT stop saying funny things, or do you need a guilt trip about not spending enough time with the kids?

Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

How dare anyone call Heroes a guilty pleasure?! Save the cheerleader, save your face!. Great TV show. Not quite as good as Jericho, but almost.

Come tooooooooooo the place where tropical breezes blow!

Shira Salamone said...

The Punster's not allowed to eat spinach or nuts either. Maybe not the best thing to have in common. Oh, well.

Let me get this straight: You just got your 100,000th hit on *this* blog, and you actually have time to maintain *more than one* blog?? Are you *sure* you're a phyician and a musician with a wife and six kids? When on earth on do you find the time? Aside from "Our Kids Speak," are you tellin', or are the rest of your blogs "in the closet?"

Shira Salamone said...

Um, about The Jewish Connection, is anyone still home over there? There hasn't been a post on that blog in over a month.

On the other hand, I'm glad I just checked out Our Kids Speak. Apparently, I haven't been spending enough time there: The PT's a riot. :) Thanks for the reminder.

PsychoToddler said...

The PT's talents are too large to be contained on only one blog...

Sara with NO H said...

Hey...I wanna go to strong badia

Sweettooth120 said...

I guess the experience as a Used Van Lot employee came in handy with trying to find the right vehicle for 6 kids.

now i want to watch 'that thing you do'... good movie. i haven't seen it in years!

Chana said...

I'm sorely tempted to leave some comment about "waiter" versus waitTOR, except that I see you like Star Wars and I just finished watching them all so I'm happy!

YAY Star Wars. Yay Episode 3-6 (and especially episodes 3 and 6. I think I even like 3 better than 6. Actually, of course I do. How CAN you beat duels between Anakin and Obi-Wan?)

PsychoToddler said...

Actually, you just did. I knew about the mispelling. I was just waiting to see who would mention it.

Yes, but you must temper those with the puke-tastic love story and Padme's awful lines.

Then again, Ep VI had ewoks...

Let's be honest. Exercise is boring. bet basketball I'm sure I'm not shocking anybody with this revelation. Yes, I know my wife is an aerobics instructor. Good for her. For me and just about everyone else I know, the thought of jumping around, sportsbook or running in place, or pedaling non-stop for thirty to forty minutes is almost as interesting as watching paint dry. Except more painful. Over the years I've tried to come up with some other activity to link to my exercise. Reading absolutely didn't work. I had a hard time using headphones on the treadmill. march madness If I could figure out a way to play video games and work out, I'd do it (and I could probably make millions marketing it).
