i hate these things…

after watching it bounce around the internet for the last month or so…and i didn’t get one…i felt like i dodged a bullet…and then…ms scribe took aim…pow…swak dab in the the kisser…so…i decided to rewrite to make it more interesting for me…here ya go…

Four jobs that actually made a difference in my life: (and why)

phone monkey- qwest communications, pre ipo (i learned how to not treat your emplyees)

better paid, better trained, better supported phone monkey- janus funds, pre sept 11 (i learned that treating your employees well hurts profits)

bicycle messenger- small courier firm, one short summer early 90’s (i learned that i like working outside)

spreadsheet monkey- qwest communications, one very desparate year not long ago (i learned that i do not belong in a corporate environment)

Four movies I would bury in a landfill, never to be watched again:

E.T.- some people blame Jaws for creating the summer blockbuster…i have no problem with that…this movie…with it’s sticky sweet sentiment…and insistence on a happy ending…is the movie most responsible for allowing spielberg to get his hands on…and ruining…A.I….unforgivable…

The Nutty Professor, and Father of the Bride- these two movies are responsible for turning two of americas best living comedians into…walking punchlines…thank god bill murray has managed to dodge that bullet...

let’s bury that one too…

Four places I may end up haunting after i die:

my new home…

the best apartment i ever lived in…

my favorite place in Denver…

or the place i spent most of my childhood…

Four television shows I would watch and/or write:

The Huxtables in the 21st Century- Cliff has early onset Alzhiemers…and Clair is still practicing law…because they lost most of their retirement money in the late 90’s…Denise, widowed mother of two has returned home and is helping take care of her father…Sondra and Elvin are still together…and the twins are in college…Theo is struggling to keep his marriage together…and Vanessa…still single…has a successful career as an assistant d.a….Rudy…having runaway when she was 17…returns home to heal old wounds…

V: The Return– Remake of the classic sci-fi series, this time darker, and more violent. Something suitable for this Orwellian America.

Untitled Sean Nelson vehicle- Twenty something buppie (that’s black urban professional) living, loving and working in NYC. It’s your world…he just wants a piece of it.

The new Night Stalker– Fuck, that’s right, the idiots at ABC canceled it…thank god for itunes…

Four places in time I would love to see:

i might enjoy being a black man in manhattan during the 1920’s…

i would love to see north america just before the europeans arrived…

mesopatamia 10,0000-5000 BC…to witness the birth of our so-called civilization…

????- whenever and wherever it is that humanity sees it’s demise…oh wait…that could be right now…

Four websites I wish I had come up with:

here are the easy answers…google…blogger…netflix…amazon…

here are the fun answers…

imdb…this could be so much more…oh to get my hands on it…

t-shirt hell…fun for perverts…

that’s six…i was never good with numbers…

Four foods i should not have ate:

girl scout tagalongs…crack in plastic wrap…

my mother-in-law’s hamantaschen…that’s a jewish cookie…and that’s homemade crack…

real swiss chocolate…i was 8…i keep chasing after that taste…

entenmanns chocolate covered doughnuts…my arteries hate me

Four places I will see in the next 10 years:

bangalore…nepal…milan…london…
