Ah, it's a good day for a meme. I don't do these often, but sometimes they're fun. And since Frykitty asked, how can I refuse?
Four jobs I've had
1. Cauliflower planter
2. Christmas-tree shearer
3. Door-to-door insurance salesman
4. Box salesman
Four places I've lived
1. Canby, Oregon
2. Salem, Oregon
3. Oak Grove, Oregon
4. There is no fourth place (well, I lived in Portland til I was two, but I don't remember it)
Four places I would rather be right now
2. Together with a group of friends
3. Reading comic books
4. Isn't it strange that I don't have answers like "Hawaii" or "Europe"?
And just because I'm difficult, I've made up another small list of four things. Who cares what television shows people like? I want to know what books they like! (Maybe Cat can add these to her list...)

Scheduled for tomorrow: what the hell is wrong with the world today?
My eBay auctions are going well. I've posted twenty-four items now. Eighteen have bids for a total of $530.23. I've taken photos for a bunch of other stuff and will post it soon. I've got to be careful, though: this whole process is addictive (it's like free money!) and I'm not exactly sure what sort of burden shipping is going to be. I don't know how much time and effort it will involve, and I don't know what it's going to cost. (I'm offering free shipping on all my auctions.)
I set a personal best on the way to work this morning. It was a three skunk morning, by which I mean I passed three different dead skunks between Canby and the shop. All three skunks were within a mile of each other. My car reeked by the time I made it to work...
On this day at foldedspace.org
2007 — Scattered Thoughts on Intelligence In which I meditate on the nature of intelligence.
2005 — Sidetracked In which I move all of my books from upstairs to downstairs.
2004 — Stop! I Will Tell You What to Do In which Kris isn't bossy — she just likes to tell me what to do.
2003 — Double Habanero Beef Jerkey In which Tony brings me some jerkey of death. In which Harrison shouts a "shark charge!" In which our investment club loses money.
