Doulicia (my favorite doula-lawyer) tagged me with this meme. I see that a similar one has been making the rounds of the lawyer-blogs - most notably Ernie the Attorney and Monica Bay and you can follow the links for the rest. So here it is:

Four Jobs I Have Had:

2. Pre-treating carbon samples in a radiocarbon lab.
3. Law firm receptionist.
4. Attorney.

Four Movies I could watch over and over:
(there are probably others, these are just the top four that popped into my mind.)

1. Groundhog Day
2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (but not in front of the kids… oy, the language is awful)
3. Star Wars
4. Cool Runnings ("I am feeling very Olympic today")

Four places I have lived:

Doulicia - both were study-abroad programs, once to study Russian (more specifically, scientific and technical Russian); the other to study international law and the Russan legal system.
