Meme, Long Time no See
Via Ali

Four jobs I have had in my life:
Translator for my dad – can you imagine me explaining how complicated machines recycling oils work? I still don’t know how I made it through those days.
Editor for a press monitoring agency – by far the job that required me to wake up the earliest.
Marketing Officer – the first job I had in a company where the bosses did not understand Romanian.
Technical Supporter – would never have the strength to do it again

Four movies I would watch over and over again:
Heaven’s Doors
Love Actually – because it is so full of hope that it suits any given situation
Any movie with Vin Diesel – ah, yeah, a guilty pleasure still!
Phantom of the Opera – because I still don’t get the girl’s choice

Four places I’ve lived:
A village in the Vrancea county called Sihlea, with my grandma
Ploiesti, my first and everlasting love
Bucharest, the city they all love to hate, but me, I’ve always worshiped it for some obscure reason
….list still open…..

Four TV shows I like to watch:
Desperate Housewives
IT Crowd

Four places I have visited:
Italy, Rome

, Istanbul

Four websites I visit daily:
Online edition of Evenimentul Zilei
Ziarul Financiar
Linux news related bunch of sites (work related)

As this list shows, I am finally reading the papers again, online, but still…

Four places I would like to be right now:
Sahara Desert and generally any country with a warmer climate
Rome, in the exact same hotel I stayed 6 years ago, then running to Fontana di Trevi
On a boat trip around the world
Road trip with my car through Europe

As you can see, not really a fixed place. Wandering and vagabonding would do for me

For of my favorite foods:
As I am not allowed to eat half of them (doctor’s orders) I will skip this part.

Four bloggers I’d like to respond:
Anyone interested in the meme.

    hello again...
    in fact... i'm wandering too (i was born in caracal; when i was 6 months my parents moved to slobozia; I spent all my summer holidays in Roman, where my granparents live; i made my first 2 years of highschool in Bucharest, and for these last 3 years i have been living in Venice, while next year my parents want me to go to university in the States)... so I haven't finished yet (did you?) also because I am still young (I'm 19)..
    in addition... 2 months ago I went to a world conference called 'the future of science' (fortunately they organized it here in venice, where i live :) ) where they exposed well and supported some theories about memes (only if with memes u intend what i do, that is both metaphysical and genetic unit of information, thought or idea, even a powerful flow of mental energy)...
    i do not have a blog (yet) 'cause i do not like exposing (too much).. but i do like talking to intelligent people!
    best wishes

    Wow, you have been wandering indeed! No, memes are something a bit different in the blogosphere. They're like a set of standard questions/topics bloggers are tagged with by other bloggers. In this case, Ali got it from Paris Parfait and I kind of tagged myself with it after reading her answers.

    Well, untill you get a blog, feel free to comment here or drop me an email from time to time :)

    stay cool!

    All about you, thank you for the visit!

    Ingeras87, you should not feel embarassed. I also did not know anything about other possible meanings of the word. Looks like we both learned something.
