my fives

Wally tagged me, and I will oblige. I've never actually done of these things before, but this one appears relatively harmless. However, I would like to point out that "favorites", much like that proverbial stream of Heraclitus that connot be crossed twice, are something in constant flux, and that my "favorites" would likely be different next week or even tomorrow. It is the same for each of you, I'm sure, but I felt it necessary to make the disclaimer.
Yes, Heraclitus sounds like a dirty name.
Anyway, here goes:
5 JOBS YOU'VE HAD IN YOUR LIFE: bookstore manager, teacher, law clerk, educational assesment evaluator instructor, and freelance graphic designer.
5 MOVIES YOU COULD WATCH OVER AND OVER: Barton Fink, Rushmore, Yojimbo, Casablanca, and Young Frankenstein.
5 PLACES YOU'VE LIVED (I have to stretch to make this one. These first three are all within the same county in Alabama): St. Florian, AL; Florence, AL; Killen, AL; Murfreesboro, TN; Knoxville, TN.
5 TV SHOWS YOU LOVE TO WATCH: My Name Is Earl, Foyle's War, Mythbusters, Arrested Development, and Scrubs.
5 PLACES YOU'VE BEEN ON VACATION: Tangiers, Morocco; Madrid, Spain; Merida, Mexico; Lisbon, Portugal; Dollywood, Tennessee.
5 WEBSITES YOU VISIT DAILY: various Google searches, Nashville is Talking, Fenderforum, Wikipedia, and Myspace.
5 OF YOUR FAVORITE FOODS: peanut butter, sushi, gumbo, sweet potatoes, and key lime pie.
5 PLACES YOU'D RATHER BE: the Carolina side of the Smokies, the Alabama Gulf Coast, the Yucatan Peninsula, Scotland, or Japan.
5 ALBUMS YOIU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT (I could easily name you 50 and still leave some out.): "Eat a Peach" by the Allman Brothers Band, "Give" by the Bad Plus, "Doolittle" by the Pixies, "Time (the Revelator)" by Gillian Welch", and a collection of recordings by Django Reinhardt.
5 PEOPLE YOU'D TAG TO PLAY THIS GAME (Forgive me if any of you have been tagged already.): Ryan, Vol Abroad, Michael, 'stro, and the ladies at Cake Fun.

OK Rex, you got me. And I have to admit, it was a bit fun thinking up some fives for the list.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to my chain mail.

I realize that it was a bit tormenting at first, and I've found that the best thing to do with torment is to pass it along to others.

Rushmore almost made my list of movies I could watch over and over, but I went for two Tatum O'Neal films instead. My wife was wrinkling her nose at my choices for that one so I had to explain that they weren't what I thought were the five best movies - just ones I could sit through over and over. Good list.

Done and done.

Now where's my pot of gold or whatever the prize is for passing this on?
