Meme of four, meme of seven

Taggity taggity tag. Mommygoth and LisaV tagged me with the sevens meme so long ago that no one still remembers the tale. But yesterday Professor Bastard jogged my memory by tagging me with the four meme.

Time to get down to meme business. But here's the problem. Seven is a big number. A very, very big number. And seven times seven? A number too big to contemplate. I can't come up with that many factoids about my, ahem, fascinating self.

So what to do? In the name of fairness to all meme taggers, not to mention to my sanity, I am going to combine the four meme and the seven meme, eliminating redundancies and answering each question four times.

This may result in some unexpected messiness. Such is life.
