4 Jobs I Have Had in My Life:
Landscaper > I love shoveling thousands of pounds of decorative rock next to houses. No, not really.
Dental Technician > I created (through my cat-like speed and reflexes) dental appliances like crowns, bridges, and orthodontic retainers.
Loading Dock Grunt > I worked for Tex-Pack, which was the worlds most evil shipping company. I worked in the Fort Worth branch where the owner weighed over 400 lbs, the manager of the facility weighed so much that he maxed out the freight scale which I think went up to 500-600 lbs or so, and a shift manager who was a self-professed hater of seminary students, which I was at the time.
International Student Minister (University of Louisville and University of Kentucky) > I was basically a "faith" supported missionary to international students for 3 years, and I was able to pray with a Chinese student who trusted Christ at a prayer meeting on 9/11/01.

4 Movies I Could Watch Over and Over:
Tommy Boy > "It's called reading! Top to bottom, left to right... a group of words
together is called a sentence. Take Tylenol for any headaches... Midol
for any cramps."
Shaun of the Dead > "If you get cornered...[hits himself on head with cricket bat]...bash 'em in the head, that seems to work. Ow."
Training Day > "You're a long way from Starbuck's homey."
Good Will Hunting > "My boy's wicked smart."

4 TV Shows I Love To Watch:
I don't watch much TV, not even the news. But four are required.
24 > this should be a given for anyone with a pulse, the only show I must watch
American Idol > it's fun, and my wife enjoys it and so I enjoy it with her
American Chopper > if you are a guy, you like it. I don't like schedule watching it, but when I see it on, it's a must see.
Beauty and the Geek > man, I'm sorry. But I have to admit there's something redemptive about this show, and it's funny. Forgive me.
4 Places You Have Been On Vacation:
Charleston > We introduced our kids to the ocean.
Phoenix > I was able to go all expenses paid to the rainiest three days in the history of Phoenix for a golf trip. It both rocked and sucked.
Stoughton, WI > We rented a cabin on a lake with nothing to do but enjoy our family. It was great.
