Four better or four worse… April 16, 2008

Posted by modoathii in tag.
trackback

This is a post I tried avoiding but Sybella and Valentia (shaking fist…LOL!) insisted….SAAAAWAAA!

FOUR JOBS I HAVE WORKED

1. Teacher (who taught for 5 minutes)
2. Copywriter
3. Editor (of the first and only estate magazine)
4. Artist/painter/designer for hire

FOUR MOVIES I WOULD WATCH OVER AND OVER

1. Shrek (I know it word for word)
2. Ratatouille (I’ve never loved a rat – Marto doesn’t count – like I love this one)
3. Shawshank Redemption
4. The Prestige, Snatch, Cars

FOUR PLACES I HAVE LIVED

Since I haven’t left the country long enough to ‘live’…
1. Limuru
2. Wangige
3. Kibera
4. Nairobi West
…na bado!

FOUR TV SHOWS I LOVE

1. The Pretender
2. Hustle
3. My name is Earl
4. (okay, I’m not big on TV series’)

FOUR PLACES I HAVE BEEN ON VACATION

1. Mombasa
2. Kampala
3. Dar
4. Towns around Kenya…many more to go

FOUR OF MY FAVOURITE FOODS

1. Not pumpkin
2. Not cooked bananas…though the fried ones in UG were awesome
3. Kenchic chicken…only when I’m from a rave.
4. I very well eat anything…except 1 and especially 1

FOUR PLACES I WOULD RATHER BE NOW

1: With her (no link…and, don’t bother mousing over)
2: Not in the office definitely
3: Not home either
4: Anywhere I’ve never been

Then the creative Tandra went and did a different one (shaking fist)….YIKES….

FOUR JOBS I WOULD LOVE TO WORK!

1. Journalist
2. Trucker – Seriously, not coz of the pay, but coz of the ‘touring’. Hmmm, i don’t think then I’d ever get any deliveries done.
3. UN, or even Red Cross
4. A jobo where my money is now working for me…payback time.

FOUR MOVIES I WOULD LOVE TO DIRECT
All four, and however many more, will have to be my own obviously.

waiiit instead… FOUR PEOPLE/STEREOTYPES I WOULD WRITE OUT OF THE SCRIPT

1. The African, Chinese or whoever who insists on being in my movie but since I can’t pay him, I have to kill him early in the movie.
2. The silly characters who even in the eye of danger are still ‘filming’ and doing silly things unnatural. So clearly Cloverfield would never have happened if it was on my watch. I mean honestly, you’re under attack but you are holding the camera and still shooting, and he ain’t the reporter or anything. WTF?
3. Steven Siegel and all the freaking rappers who try to act with or without him.
4. Woody Allen, I don’t know. I don’t hate him, just guys don’t like him, so why not join them. heheheheh….

PLACES I WOULD LOOOVE LOOOOOVE TO LIVE OR AT LEAST VISIT

1. Jamaica. Stereotypical curiosity.
2. The French or English countryside. The green vastness calls out to me. France I added to the list coz of Ratatouille. Hey blame the rat…
3. Japan. No idea why. Maybe just so that everyday my neighbour Nokosodi Kumamoto (and others) can make my day by just introducing himself.
4. Switzerland. Just coz she said it was a nice place.

FOUR TV SHOWS/ SERIES I’D LOVE TO BE ON THE SET FOR

Jeez Tandra, what the?

1. Friends
2. Scrubs

Eish, after being on sets for ads, I know it’s a tiring and tedious process…so please just show me the finished product….wait…

3. Cobra Squad – I just want to know how exactly they got away with such bad acting. Was the director asleep? Juiced? You know what, for this one, don’t even show me the finished product.

4. Porn flick – I want to see how the cameramen and sound guys, er, hold it down.


FOUR PLACES I WOULD LIKE TO GO ON VACATION

1. Italy
2. Egypt, via the Nile
3. Any town in Kenya, I’ve never been to…just so that I can club like crazy since no one knows me…so is that really a vacation
4. Pack up my Land Rover and just explore, (with pals, but mostly with the ‘one who loves going’)

Actually for me, anywhere I’ve never been before is good enough.

FOUR FOODS I WOULD KILL TO LEARN TO COOK

Okay, this is…I mean, why would I want to kill anyone, and so that I can learn to COOK?

Now who to tag…crap, hate this bit too. haiya, betty, phassie, archie, bomseh, 1nt3ll1g3n514! shucks 1nt3l has already been tagged…so what say you gish?

Back in the day when I watched TV, The Pretender was my ultimate! These kina sijui 24 or Prison Break or sijui what else kando!

I keep telling you, get on point with Bunduz and you’ll travel far and wide on the cheap! Lakini that vibe of pataing a Landy and just touring whenever… ebu sign me up for that!

bunduz mimi ndani…landie tutakuweka…

2. CB - April 16, 2008

ai, when you tag you TAG!!! hehehe, lucky me sikuonekana hapo, phew!! this would take weeks to fill in! GREAT movies, those first three are classic!! yaani after ratatouille nikiona panya i at least think before i scream…lakini, did that panya have a name? i don’t recall him actually being called anything except ‘little chef’…

remy. it was called remy. so you’re back? welcome back…next time…

3. Half n Half - April 16, 2008

This is a LOOOONG tag! how long did it take?
haya:
I hear you on the cobra squad, just before I left I saw one episode where the cops were rolling on grass ati cover! it was hilarious!

I DONT think you want to be a trucker to “tour’ I hear those guys have a wife at every stop where they have to take makaa and chicken! LOOL!
Haiya, too many things to talk about! wacha I take a breather and come back!

And yes swiss is a beautiful country

it was ndefu yaaani, but nikatoboa…was gonna tag you but nikajua uko na stress mob ya all english champions league..LOL! I won’t be a trucker of leaving ‘evidence’ everywhere. you made it sound awesome, so swiss…on agenda….

4. Archie - April 16, 2008

Yay! my first tag!!! why do you make it sound like it’s a bad thing? But i think i shall do like you and tandra and remix the taglines…coz…er…:)

tagging business is..is…though it’s so to speak a free post coz you don’t really need mojo, just energy…

5. bOMSEH - April 16, 2008

Can you see me seething? Shaking fist more than u did. Kaa chonjo!

dude, kwani nitaumia pekee yangu?

6. threetypesofcrazy - April 16, 2008

is this a tag or an autobigrapher of sorts?

it’s coz ni mbili…

7. valentia - April 16, 2008

now..why shake ur fists??? you know you loved writing this out so don’t pretend..heehee..(val laughing the evil laughter all bad guys in cartoons seem to have)..I’m liking the remixed version btw

I’d love to know who you taught…did you accept to teach under the influence? of vodo-marula??…me I love Kenchic anytime…seriously missing it now..si you go rave and send some this way???

Lakini that trucker business is a tricky one..did y’all get those magazines…(wannabe comics) about pple most like to be infected by the HIV virus..supposedly truckers coz of that storo of a wife in every town..woi!!

I want to watch Cobra Squad..so badly…gah!! I love Kenyan tv..is it as horrendously acted as reported?? (val wants a copy)

enyewe honestly it was quite interesting (not fun) interesting to do…i taught some, oh shit, niliona mmoja akirokota makaratasi, teachers are meant to mentor kids, clearly i didn’t. under no influence, wish i was though…rave we will but not soon, did my two days of the month recently, and in a row…the trucking i’m not after their behaviours/lifestyles, just their ‘trips’ and the fact that sio kuamka na kuenda ofisini day in day out…cobra squad was, there are some great one, okay, great labda ni saaaaaaaana, but makutano junction is cool, tahidi high…etc…

8. kip - April 16, 2008

i have no idea, i know tu hana ‘balls’…are we crystal clear? hehehehe

9. Half n Half - April 16, 2008

10. Half n Half - April 16, 2008

Halafu, now I have remembered, your blog roll bugs me no end because its NOT alphabetical………..this is why you taught chuo for all of 5 minutes!

i like it coz it’s not alphabetical and it changes every time. kinda feels different every time i open. so sio routine. routine bugs me…

11. Gish - April 17, 2008

Porn flick – I want to see how the cameramen and sound guys, er, hold it down

Muhahaha aki you are mad. Tag will be sorted.

for real. it’s just curiosity…good woman.

12. Sybella - April 17, 2008

lol…. cobra squad? sounds hideous…

as for the porn flick, with all that ‘cut’ & ‘no no no. you should do it this way…’, can’t imagine that it is really exciting for all the cameramen and equipment guys. they also probably are so used to it.

valentia is so right, you must have liked writing this out so stop gifanyaring…

it is hideous (to me)…yeah, i guess ur right they do get used. coz you can only see the same boobies for so long (but wait, then how come we watch the tape over and over…)…you and valentia wacheni…sawa nimekubali…ooops, forgot, english, i’ve agreed.

13. farmgal - April 17, 2008

Ai this’s the longest tag ever! Why didn’t you mention tha Brit comedy? I’v forgotten the name…you know the one you told me about.
