The Lighter Side of Blogging

February 25, 2006

Ok, so Clarke is trying to educate me on the subtler protocols of blogging, specifically something called tagging. Apparently Doug is in cahoots with him on this tagging thing. And it seems I’ve been slow to catch on… So, in order safeguard my firstborn, and to avoid sleeping with the fishes myself, here is my attempt to answer the required questions about “Four Things”, and tag back:

Four jobs I’ve had:

1) Engineer with a large power company
2) Contract programmer with another large power company
3) Captive programmer with a large medical software company
4) Security architect with a small media infrastructure technology company

Four movies I could watch over and over:

1) UHF
2) Back to the Future
3) Raiders of the Lost Ark
4) Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Four books I could read over and over:

1) The Bible (sorry but it’s true)
2, 3, and 4) C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy

Four places I’ve lived

1) Jacksonville NC
2) Raleigh NC
3) Charlotte NC
4) Lawrenceville Ga

Four TV shows I watch

1) Mythbusters
2) Sportscenter
3) various college sports
4) various NFL games

Four places I’ve been on vacation

1) Yosemite National Park
2) Yellowstone National Park
3) The Grand Canyion
4) St Thomas, Virgin Islands

Four websites I visit daily
besides my blogging friends….
1) slashdot.com
2) digg.com
3) cnn.com
4) google.com (lame answer, I know)

Four favorite foods

1) A good steak
2) Blenheim’s Ginger Ale (hot!)
3) good cajun food
4) anything hot and spicy

Four places I’d like to be right now

1) home (I am!)
2) Abilene lectureships (well, earlier this week…)
3) visiting my mom
4) did I say home?

Four bloggers I’m tagging:

Clarke at clarkecomments.com
Doug at salguod.net
John at pinakidion.com
Phil at restorationunity.com

Ok I hope I did that right… Hey, what’s with the straightjacket? What are you doing? Don’t put my feet in that bucket of concrete mix! Wait!… ;->


  1. Alan, you did fine until the tagging bit at the end. Since Clarke and I already did it, I think it’s against proper tagging etiquette to tag us again. 😉

  2. Hmmm… Sounds like a chain letter to me.Alan

  3. Alan:Doug is right, but we can let it slide! 😉 My tag answers are here.-Clarke

  4. Hey Clarke,Thanks for your kindness… Mercy triumphs over judgment! ;->Alan
