Normally I pass on memes, but for some reason this one caught my fancy on LutheranChik's blog.

Four jobs you've had in your life:

In this order...

Petroleum distribution engineer (a.k.a. gas station attendant)
Sports writer
Pizza distribution engineer
Software engineer

Four movies you could watch over and over:

The Princess Bride
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The World According to Garp

Four places you've lived:

Wiley Ford, West Virgina (of which I may be the most famous former resident)
Cumberland, Maryland (home, or former home, of Baltimore Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo, Baltimore Orioles pitching coach Leo Mazzone, actor William H. Macy and actor Eddie Deezen [voice of Mandark on "Dexter's Labratory"])
Lonaconing, Maryland (birthplace of Hall of Fame pitcher Lefty Grove, once named by The Sporting News as the greatest left-handed pitcher of all time)
Portland, Oregon (birthplace of Matt Groening, creator of "The Simpsons" and "Futurama")

Four TV shows you love to watch:

Baseball Tonight

...and, should I really admit this?


Four places you've been on vacation:

New Orleans (right before Hurricane Katrina)
Cleveland(!) (I went for the inaugural season of Jacob's Field)
Victoria, BC

Four websites you visit daily:

Maybe not every day....


Four of your favorite foods:

Ribeye steak
Buffalo wings

Four places you'd rather be right now:

Camden Yards
Fenway Park
Wrigley Field
Safeco Field

Nevermind that it's winter and there won't be baseball in these places for another three months. In my mind, it's always baseball season.

I've been unable to access lutheranchiklworddiary since the end of December. If I click on a link to I get a "server not found" error, and my RSS reader can't find the RSS feed. I can go to and do a search and find recent posts, but I can't get to them when I click the link. I wonder if this a a problem at Or with my ISP? I can get to everything else with a URL of Suggestions?

It sounds like maybe there's some kind of proxy setting on your system redirecting that URL. Have you had that problem with any non-blogspot web sites?

Turns out that the DNS servers I had in my router were out of date. (Well, they never told me to change them!) Figured it was an ISP issue. But I can now access LutheranChik's "L" Word Diary just fine.
