  1. I see that “abused, mis-treated, screamed at, lowly-paid slave” didn’t show up on your list of jobs you have had…

  2. Thanks for the invitation dear She, but if I accept to do it I’ll be breaking the only rule of my blog. I refer you to this quote from my first blog entry:
    “Only one thing actually: NO TAGS. Period!”

  3. You remind me of myself, She. Whenever I am tagged I find it quite difficult to stick to the fixed number of things I like, dislike, enjoy, etc. I have so much more to give to the world, sigh. I am flattered you visit the Box so often! Make sure to drop by UTN soon, too.

  4. I havent seen any of the 4 (or) more movies that you wouldnt get bored of watching!

  5. anonymous: Actually, that description works quite well for a different gourmet coffee/chocolate shop I worked at, as well as the speechwriting job.

    Ziad: Ooops! Sorry. Didn’t notice that. I just thought that you’d have some pretty interesting answers, which is why I thought of you.

    Tololy: Thanks! I even cut a few answers here and there, because I was really overdoing it (the foods list could have gone on for quite some time, as well as the movie list). And, I’ve already been to UTN and added it to my favorites. I look forward to getting to know “Tololy’s evil twin”. 🙂

    Sabri: You haven’t seen any of them?? Well then, you haven’t even begun to live! Get thee to a video rental place immediately! 🙂 Maybe I should have tagged you too…

  6. anonymous: Oh, and quite aptly describes my first foray into the hi-tech world as well… 😉

  7. Does that mean I squeezed in as a reserve?

  8. Yep! 🙂 Gotta problem with that?

  9. Interesting 🙂

  10. Hello, I`m Colombian, and i`m interested for a job in Middle East, i`m Systems Engineer, but i don´t really know where get information about this. Could you help me please?

    If you want you can write to me to this e-mail, but please use this title “From middle east”, otherwise, i can think that is spam and erase it!!!

    Thank you

  11. You sound interesting She, Your tag bug reached me 🙂
    Get this:

    Nice Blog BTW

  12. Wow, except for The Wizard of Oz (which I od’d on as a child and now can’t watch unless it is with the Pink Floyd album sinc’d up and playing without the movie sound, heh) your movie list contains the movies that I do indeed watch over and over and over again!

    I loved all your responses and especially that you didn’t limit yourself to just 4. You radical you 🙂

  13. Great movie choices. I was tagged a few times and I too, couldn’t limit myself to just four. Just so much good stuff to choose from.

  14. Cough, cough. My co-blogger has walked the walk, danced the dance and now I feel guilty I haven’t joined in. I’ll do it! Honest Guv. Strike me blind if I don’t. … er what do I have to do exactly?

  15. Hello She, thanks for playing! I shall take your movies list with me to the video rentals place next time. Steak and guinness pie, now there’s a memory…….. sigh.


    Regret my intrusion ,but I need to verify this caption and the statistics used in this 7 mints documentary ,do you care to give it time and check ,and give me your honest opinion as someone from the other side !! prior i connect my self to wrong impressions ,thanks kindly for your tome ,if not I fully understand .

  17. what is a tag?

  18. The Princess bride ! I’ve almost forgotten this movie that I loved so much when I was 16 ! Thank you for reminding me of it !
    (and sorry for my so bad english ! And I really like your blog !)

  19. Hi Rami,

    By tagging you, it means that you are supposed to take this entry that I’ve written here (the Meme of Four), and answer the same questions as an entry on your own blog. You then “tag” four other bloggers to do the same thing. Can’t wait to see your answers!

  20. There you go she… I adhered…

  21. Trust all is well at your end ?!!on Sunday 29th wrote
    Well, I had been planning to change pace and write an entry about my little one, but the child will have to wait,since then you have not updated your blog.
    I hope nothing serious stopped you from updating your blog ? I await to read about your little one ,and to know you are well.good wishes .

  22. anonymous: Thanks for your concern! All is well, but He and I have both been up to our eyeballs with work and life, and both can get way to time-consuming sometimes. I promised a post about the little one, and it will come soon enough, given the never ending amounts of material that he provides… 🙂

  23. helene: I believe that I can actually recite most of the words from The Princess Bride by heart. It’s my all-time favorite film!
