Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

12/23/2005: Sucker for blogmemes

(Should that be "blemes?")

Via Kevin Drum, the meme of fours:

Four jobs you've had in your life: Grocery sacker, bookstore schlub, pizza delivery driver, computer geek.

Four movies you could watch over and over: The Big Lebowski, Young Frankenstein, The Fisher King (which I saw five times in the theatre), and Brain Candy (which must be one of the most underrated comedies ever).

Four places you've lived: I'm afraid I've only lived three places. Moscow, TN; Memphis, TN; and Rochester, NY. I guess I could split Memphis into two sections to make four: Midtown and the UofM area.

Four TV shows you love to watch: The Simpsons, King of the Hill, House, and Arrested Development.

Four places you've been on vacation: That's a tough one. I'm not sure whether my yearly visit with the in-laws counts as vacation or not. So I'll try to think of other places I've been on vacation. Washington, DC; New York City; Charleston, SC. And I'll add San Antonio, TX, even though my travel there is work-related, because it's so much fun.

Four websites you visit daily: Marginal Revolution, for a dose of mostly sane libertarianism; The Poor Man, for some fun wingnut bashing; BoingBoing, to see the latest in the weird and wonderful; and my latest favorite mix of liberalism, feminism, economics, libertarian-hatin', and schnauzerblogging, BattlePanda.

Four of your favorite foods: Sushi, fried tofu, amberjack, and my wife's tomato and tortilla soup.

Four places you'd rather be: Another tough one, assuming you mean places I'd like to live. Seattle struck me as a very livable city when I visited. I really like Memphis. It's a big enough city to have almost all the amenties I want, bug not so big that it's overwhelming (like NYC).
