Despite responding with this:

Curse you Mottram! It’ll give me something to do on the tram at least.

I shall take a leaf out of Anne’s book and show the latest meme some love. Why get grumpy when somebody takes the time to reach out and say hello?

Four jobs I’ve had:

  1. Dish washer in a cafe that sold Stotties (£15 a week!)
  2. Elderflower collector for a wine maker (not too smart for a hayfever sufferer)
  3. mobile phone salesman (sales – best training for my career I ever had)
  4. ride operator in an amusement park (Gee, I like your accent. Are you from Australia?)

Four films I can watch repeatedly:

  1. Back to the Future I (What did I tell you?! 88mph!!!!)
  2. Canonball Run (God is our co-pilot? Remember our car? 2 seats? Where’s he gonna sit?)
  3. Any of the Indiana Jones movies (Ah, snake suprise!)
  4. Fight Club (The first rule of…blah, blah, blah)

Four places I’ve lived:

  1. oddly named places in the English countryside, such as: Bottesford in the Vale of Belvoir
  2. in the shadow of the Aston Villa football ground
  3. on the beach front in Santa Cruz (fond memories of the women’s beach volleyball tour)
  4. a series of late Victorian terraces – thanks to my childhood fascination with Mr Benn.

Four television programmes I like to watch:

  1. anything on BBC4
  2. most things on MTV2
  3. Coupling
  4. Duck Dodgers

Four places I’ve been to on holiday:

  1. Turkey
  2. Barcelona
  3. Tuscany
  4. Florida

Four of my favourite dishes:

  1. pancakes
  2. any dessert prepared by my Mother
  3. rice pudding
  4. cheesecake

(main courses are mererly a vehicle to get you to dessert)

Four websites I visit daily:

  1. (I’m watching you!)
  2. bloglines (I’m reading you!)
  4. my wiki

Four places I would rather be right now:

  1. in bed with Sarah
  2. a world that hadn’t invented the internet yet
  3. a world where independent coffee shops with big sofas and their own library could survive
  4. climbing some rock

Four bloggers I am annoying:

  1. Peter
  2. John
  3. Anon
  4. Javier

Cheerio. AutoCAD is calling me.
