As requested, Four things meme:
Four jobs you have had:

System Consultant/Operator: University of Florida Computer Science Department
I was actually one of the nice support staff.
Webmaster: Miami-Dade County Public Schools
My co-workers mocked me for being a standards junkie, and now the entire site is a Flash-laden monstrosity that looks worse than a bowl of pus.
Intern: Mercury Productions, Inc.
I worked for a man named John Holmes, a fellow student at the University of Florida Computer Science Department, who told me he had a lot of disappointed dates.
Software Developer: Cox Radio Interactive
I'm actually enjoying developing in Java. Go figure.

Four movies you could watch over and over:

The Incredibles
I could probably just watch the "100-Mile Dash" chapter of The Incredibles over and over, but the whole movie just rules.
Raising Arizona
Still one of the most quotable movies ever.
Another quotable movie which has the potential to remain largely unedited when broadcast on network television, unless you're a completely psycho time-editor for the We channel (dumb fucker).
When Harry Met Sally
"You made a woman meow?"

Four places you've lived:

Miami, Florida
And not the hip-trendy area. The suburbs of Miami, which is pretty much a culture-free armpit of Hell.
Taipei, Taiwan
Where the massive amounts of industry kicked my allergies in the face.
Gainesville, Florida
A place which exemplifies the adage "You can never go home again" for me.
Atlanta, Georgia

Four television shows you love to watch:

Jeremy Piven and Paula Marshall spitting Rob Thomas' rapid-fire banter dialogue at one another with unresolved sexual tension? Priceless.
Battlestar Galactica
Quite possibly the most compelling show, sci-fi or not, on television right now.
My Name Is Earl
Funniest show on TV now.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Early seasons only, though. While there are a few gems in the final four seasons, the dialogue, plotting, and characterization have all suffered in exchange for more silly relationships between characters.

Four places you've been on vacation:

Whistler, British Columbia
If I'm going to have to bear the cold, I'd rather be skiing.
Xian, China
Where I learned that the Chinese word for "thing" literally means "East-West," because the street where the markets (i.e. where you buy "things") were when Xian was the capital ran East-West.
Paris, France
Even if you assume everything the detractors have said is valid (which in my experience, it wasn't), this remains a magical city.
Washington, DC
A place where you can learn and think and walk (a lot).

Four of your favourite foods:

Dim Sum
I need more Dim Sum in my life.
The guacamole from Burrito Bros. Taco Company
In Gainesville.
There is a reason I have a 246 cholesterol level...
On a lightly-toasted bialy or a whole wheat sub roll, pastrami is the luncheon meat of the gods.

Four places you'd rather be right now:

Las Vegas, NV
Like I told my co-workers recently, I am a degenerate gambler.
Lake Tahoe
See my comment regarding Whistler, BC
At this point, I'm actually enjoying the new job.
In bed
and, like the young lady who sent this to me, not by myself...

Really? Me too! I can watch individual episodes of the later seasons, but the arcs aren't nearly as well written and I HATE 99.9% of all television romance.

[User Picture]I remember writing on Usenet that Buffy should have a moratorium on relationships back in the 3rd season.

Yeah, like that happened...
