Tagged Again!

Another week, another meme:-)

I was tagged by Dave for this one, so here goes...

Four jobs you’ve had in your life:
Retail Cashier/supervisor - from way too young to work legally, through school, college & some of uni.
Sports Coach - at first voluntary, I then discovered I could get paid for it - and paid well. A much more lucrative job throughout uni and beyond
Leisure Centre Manager - My career. Big & small, public, private, trust & contract, I've done 'em all:-)
Sports Development Assistant/Officer/Director - been at all ends of the spectrum of this job, and seen the good & the bad

Of course that's only counting the jobs I've been paid for. I could include; daughter, mother, wife, carer, chicken farmer, kitchen assistant, and general dogsbody in.


Four movies you could [and do] watch over and over:
I've sure I've answered this one on another meme? Do I watch any fims over & over out of personal choice? I'm not sure. Let me think, how about:
The Blues Brothers
The Princess Bride

Labyrinth {I know, but David Bowie makes up for it all;-)}
Fifth Element (it was panned, but I like it)

Four places you’ve lived:
For how long? Lets go with more than 3 months or so shall we?
NE London - age 3-18 years. Oh what fun. I left the afternoon of my last exam.
Israel - I spent 3 months on a Kibbutz, and a further three working here and there.
Southampton - My uni years
Scotland - 5 months in a little town between Perth & Inverness, 4 months overlooking Loch Lomond.

Four fiction books you can’t live without(well your favourites anyway):
Yeah right, I can name just four! Here's some that I re-read over & over:
The Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett
The Deverry Series by Katherine Kerr
The first three of the Magician series & Empire series by Raymond Feist & Janny Wurts
The Caterbury Tales by Chaucer


Four non-fiction books you consider essential:
Not much of a non fiction person really, but let me see:
My cookbook
Bill Bryson
Encyclopeadia Britannica

Up to date First Aid Manual

Four TV shows you love to watch:
Lost
QI
Stargate (and Atlantis)
BBC News

Four places you’ve been on vacation:
Sri-Lanka
Mexico (not Cancun, but on the Mayan Peninsula)
The USSR (back when it was still the Soviet Union - just)
Eire

Does bumming around with a backpack & a thumb count? If so, most of England, Wales, Scotland, Eire, and bits of France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Israel, The Sinai, Italy.


Four websites you visit daily:
BBC News
Aggies blog
My work homepage (not linked, cos that would be stoopid!)
Most of my blogroll


Four of your favorite foods:
Chocolate in any form
Lasagne
Beef Medallions & Potato Dauphinoise from Flute De Paris, my fave restaurant
Pasta

Four places you’d rather be:
On Holiday, anywhere
Mexico
China
(never been, would love to go)
Visting all my blogfriends

Four albums you can’t live without:
No, sorry can't do this one. It's not that I don't like music, but have no real personal interest or knowledge. I listen to whatever is on.

    Well done, you and me both on the music front.
    I think that may well be my last meme, I think they may have had their day, what do you think?

    Bill Bryson and The Princess Bride - two of my favorites! I only recently read my first Bryson, "Walk in the Woods," and I loved it so much that I'm constantly on the look out at book sales, etc for the others- for I want to own them, not simply borrow them from the library.

    Princess Bride - well, what can I say? My entire family can quote that movie. What's really funny is that's how I knew that PC was for real and that I could marry him.....The first time we invited him over to Family Movie Night, we decided to watch that. He walked in a bit late, but started rattling the lines off with us. Yep. A keeper!
