Me-me-me-me 4x meme

The Masterfully-punning and ever-so-stylish Miss Cavendish tagged me last week with this "four things" meme. Looks like quick fun, so here goes . . .

Four places I go over and over:
Paris -- our kids give us a hard time because we've been going back every spring for quite a few years now.
La Bretagne Crêperie in Vancouver--#5 on Buckwheat; coffee/cream -- your usual? our server always says -- love that!
Stanley Park Seawall
Robson Street in Vancouver


Four people who e-mail me regularly:
My friend Lisa, who teaches at another university, also English, also Canlit, and who I met back when I was doing my MA and she was starting on her PhD.
My students
Pater -- we live in different cities during the week, so the e-mail keeps us in the loop
All those helpful folks with suggestions about enlarging my penis -- my all-time favourite was the one offering to help my little soldier grow up to be a big love general -- gotta love a good metaphor!


Four places I'd rather be:
I'm actually pretty happy where I am, but I wouldn't mind somehow also being able to get to Victoria to see my son and his girlfriend.
And I'd go to Paris again in a heartbeat.
There's Lisbon -- really want to go back there.
And Vancouver -- where I'll be with my family this weekend.

Four television shows I watch:
Grey's Anatomy
Private Practice
Otherwise, I stick to DVDs -- Bigtime Buffy/Angel fan
The Wire

Four people I'm tagging:
I'm going to leave this open to anyone who wants to pick up the torch. If you do, let me know so that I can link to you.

Four places I like to eat:
Wesley Street Restaurant in Nanaimo
Gyoza King on Robson in Vancouver
l'Avant-Goût in Paris
on any Lisbon restaurant sidewalk table where I could get a plate of grilled sardines.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
