Where am I now?

As you can see, this blog hasn't gotten any love in many years... But you can now find me on my site jessicatravels.com.

My Father's Meme

For those of you who don't read the comments, I'm reprinting my father's response to yesterday's "meme of fours." My comments are in red.

Four jobs you've had in your life: Machinist, Photographer, Engineer, Cowboy (Horse Trainer), College Professor Apparently my dad can't count...
Four movies you could watch over and over: The Man from Snowy River; The African Queen; Time Bandits; The Bridge on the River Kwai.
Four places you've lived: Forest Hills, NY; Worcester, Mass; Newtown, Conn; Prairie City, Oregon; Corvallis, Oregon; Milwaukie, Oregon. Again, trouble with the counting thing...
Four TV shows you love to watch: The Daily Show; The Colbert Report; House; Numbers. He likes a show called "Numbers" and he's having trouble with them? Disturbing... Also, I'd completely forgotten about The Daily Show & Colbert Report. Good on you, dad.
Four places you've been on vacation: Israel; England; France; Mexico.
Four websites you visit daily: Andiamo; Google; Earthlink; US Bank. Aww, thanks for the plug, daddy-o...
Four of your favorite foods: Prime Rib; Lobster; Roast Suckling Pig; Leg of Lamb. And the reasons for my father's 1994 quintuple-bypass surgery suddenly become crystal clear...
Four places you'd rather be: Someplace warm where clothes are not required; On the GP Tour with a Race Team; Time to travel around the country in the RV; Nepal. I absolutely do not want to know why my father, at age 70, has decided he wants to be a nudist. There are things that should remain a mystery between parents and their children. Yipes.
