the L.A. meme

Shannon is the first person to tag me with a meme/chain letter that has been making the rounds of local bloggers. I’ve seen in on a few other blogs – Will and Heather, to start with, but Shannon’s the first to tag me as a legit L.A. blogger.

Four Jobs I’ve Had In My Life in LA:
Account Manager, Integrated Media Solutions
Freelance Media Planner, Full Tilt Poker
Media Planner, Tribal/DDB L.A.

(The problem is, I moved here for a specific job & career trajectory. All my fun, city cliched jobs happened when I was in Seattle. Like, “tour guide at Argosy”, “HTML author at Microsoft,” “temp at Sierra Video Games”, “barista at Starbucks”. If I’d spent my late teens & early 20s here, I’m pretty sure I’d have the L.A. equivalent list)

Four Movies About LA I Could Watch Over And Over:
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
LA Story (and/or The Jerk)
Pulp Fiction
Chinatown

Four Places I’ve Lived All Over L.A.:
Mar Vista
Venice

(Can I count Mom here? She lived in Boyle Heights, Westchester, NoHo and Sherman Oaks)

Four LA-Themed Shows I Love(d) To Watch:
L.A. Law
Melrose Place
The O.C.
and a tie between Animaniacs and Saved by the Bell

Four Places I Would Vacation At In LA:
Venice Beach (living here is like always being on vacation!)
Santa Monica (see above)
Catalina
Santa Barbara

Actually, even though I’ve almost perfected the Art of Matching L.A. Destinations To Canadian Friends, and I’ve developed an entire NOT A HELLHOLE TOUR (TM), I can’t think of where I would vacation here outside of the beach areas. But being able to visit those places so often makes my life here one extended vacation.

Four LA-Based Websites I Visit Daily:
I syndicate about twenty, but I never miss:

Four Of My Favorite Foods Found In LA:
Shrimp Cocktail at La Playita
spicy tofu soup in K-town
Chaya Venice sushi
gorditas at Grand Central market

Four Places In LA I Would Rather Be Right Now:
