4tune Teller

4 Places I've Lived:
* Gainesville, FL
* Lancaster, England
* Melbourne, Australia
* Charlottesville, VA

4 Jobs I've Had:
* Filing repair orders in the "Rat Room" of my dad's auto dealership
* Student worker at UGA Alumni House
* Receptionist at property management firm in Brighton, England; people would call me and bitch about their problems with their houses ALL.DAY.LONG. then assume I was stupid because of my American accent. Worst job. Oh, and on my last day my 50-something boss totally grabbed my ass when he hugged me goodbye. I digress.
* Criminal defense attorney

4 Cars I've Had:
* 1992 Cutlass convertible, red with white top; had from ages 13-27 before it was retired (now sits in my dad's shed because I don't think he can bear to sell it any more than I can bear to see it sold)


* 2001 Olds Aurora - total old-lady car, but it runs well and gets me there, so I can't complain
* ???? Nissan Sentra - this was my "rainy day car" during high school that I was supposed to drive instead of my convertible when there was inclement weather and/or when I was "grounded." Then my cousin wrecked his car and drove this, so I didn't actually have it for very long. Again, I digress. Sorry.
* That's it. I, personally, have never had 4 cars. My family has had a trillion cars, though, due to my father working in the auto industry. Probably my favorite is the Nissan 300ZX my mom has right now.

4 Websites I'd Be Lost Without:
* Google Maps (literally, lost)
* Ann Taylor Loft
* Netflix
* iTunes

4 Foods I Love:
* Chips and Salsa
* Peanut Butter
* Chocolate
* Any vegetarian Indian dish
* Cheese
* Ice cream
* Garbanzo beans
Whoops. I was supposed to stop at 4. I really love food, ya'll.

4 People That Have Influenced Me:
* My brother
* The college professor who taught me about Robert Kennedy, the Civil Rights Movement, the Revolution...
* Bridget Jones/Helen Fielding (Don't believe me? Check out the early archives of Nik's Notes and a million and seventy-five emails Tempe and I have sent to each other.)
* J

4 Events That Have Shaped Me:
* Living in England/backpacking around Europe - Jan-June 2000
* Watching a live chicken fall out of a moving chicken truck - I literally became a vegetarian the next day
* Breaking up with my college boyfriend (Completely over it now, but you know, I changed after that, mainly for the better.)
* Studying and traveling in Australia Aug-Dec 2007

4 Drinks I Order:
* Water
* Tea (Hot or UNsweet)
* Wine
* Beer

4 Movies I Could Watch Over-and-Over:
* Bridget Jones' Diary
* Clueless
* Top Gun (I have it memorized. Word. For. F-ing. Word. Ask anyone who has ever been tortured by sitting through it with me.)
* Dirty Dancing

4 Things That Comfort Me:
* My parents' house
* My yoga mat
* The quiver in Conor Oberst's voice
* A hoodie

Aw....the Cutlass convertible! I loved that car. So many memories...i.e. driving to the Monroe football game in 45 degree weather with the top down playing "Hey Lover" by LL Cool J on repeat. We so thought we were Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler in that Aerosmith video. Truth is, we were much cooler than they were.

I'm totally coming over and we're going to do a two person recitation of Top Gun. I call dibs on the Goose parts.
