I found this on [personal profile] wordweaverlynn's Journal and thought I would answer the questions. The answers are supposed to be in fours. Feel free to follow that or not. [The plan was to finish this days ago, but exhaustion after the March, various computer glitches and nibbling ducks slowed my answers until now.]

Four places I’ve lived:

1. La Puente, California

2. Rockford, Illinois

3. Berkeley, California

4. Oakland, California

Four places I've worked: (This one is harder for me, if you only count work for pay.)

1. Growth Industries (It was a sheltered workshop. Where I got paid one dollar per hour. Sheltered workshops are allowed to pay workers with disabilities much less than minimum wage. I did some piecework, then answered phones and assistant-taught living skills.)

2. Accessible Environments Inc. (Did Americans With Disabilities Act trainings for companies, nonprofits and schools. It was a very traumatic experience. Details available in person if you really want to know.)

3. I got a couple of writing gigs to provide content in online text-based games in the late 90's. It's the only writing I've actually been paid for in my short freelance writing career.

4. I'm going to include the Center for Independent Living here even though it wasn't for pay. I was on the board for 10+ years. Held every office and was president of the board for several years.

Four things I like to watch:
1. Way too much television, especially SF. Some new faves are: Call Saul, Good Behavior, Halt and Catch Fire, and Imposters (although the last one could very well be unduly influenced by the main actress, Inbar Lavi, who checks many boxes in the Guy arousal matrix.) I also want to add a couple of television writers and their shows that are probably difficult to find, but I love. Bryan Fuller was a writer for Star Trek: TNG and also wrote three of my favorite canceled television shows; Dead like Me, Wonder Falls and Pushing Daisies. He was also going to be show runner for the new Star Trek, but had to bow out. I’m also very fond of Amy Sherman-Palladino, who wrote; Gilmore Girls, Bun Heads and is writing *and* directing the new show, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel writing on Amazon.

2. Being a Dramatic Arts major, I of course love theater. I'd prefer doing theater to watching it, but I’ll take either. I especially enjoy, Samuel Becket, David Mamet, Aaron Sorkin, Eugene O’Neill, Tom Stoppard and I’m sure there are others I’m forgetting. My training largely comes from improv and it will always be a love of mine.

3. Movies, A few faves: Local Hero, Breaking Away, Wings of Desire

4. People

Four places I have been:
1. New Orleans, LA

2. Las Vegas, NV

3. Solvang, CA

4. Houston, TX

Four things I love to eat:
1. Pizza

2. Short bread

3. Bacon

4. Sandwiches

Four people I think will respond:
Whoever wants to.

Four favorite things to drink:
1. Coffee

2. juice

3. Coke

4. Dark beer

Now here is what you're supposed to do (if you like): copy and paste this in your status and update it with your responses. If you do it, just comment "Done" on this post, so I'll know to check yours out.

I'm hoping this will lead me back into posting more. I really miss DW/LJ's longer, more meaningful posts from interesting people.
