4 by 4 by far

Tagged by Mr Fat Boy Fat - if you don't read his blog you should, he is very, very funny and yes I am expecting him to pay me for this sentence - I think I might have done this before BUT being the shameless meme harlot I am - I DON'T CARE!

Four jobs I've held:
Supermarket checkout operator
Barmaid
Land registry plans assistant
Tourist office receptionist

Four movies I've watched over and over again:
Seven brides for seven brothers
Star Wars
The Shawshank Redemption
Braveheart

Four places I've been:
Andorra
Israel
Poland
Zimbabwe ... there that's spread across the alphabet quite nicely.

Four places I've lived:
Pontarddulais
Carmarthen
Bordeaux
Gillingham

Four TV shows I watch:
M
asterchef
Ashes to Ashes - wish there was a man who'd call me Bolly-knickers.
NCIS
Mock the week

Four radio shows I listen to:
Wake up to Wogan ... there was the one about the Germans who walked into the taverna where a group of English sailors were sitting. One of the Germans pointed at the display of fresh fish and said "and this fish, what is it called?" And the English sailors turn as one and say "don't tell him your name Pike!" I almost crashed the car.
Radcliffe and Maconie - lovely flat Northern-ness.
Just a minute - gameshow for panellists to talk for "just a minute" on a given subject, "without repetition, hesitation or deviation". Most excellent!
I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue - introduced as "the antidote to panel games", consists of a panel of four comedians, split into two teams and "given silly things to do" by a chairman.

Four things I look forward to:
The 25th of the month aka pay day ... Monday's coming soon!
The long summer holiday
Afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel (Kev's birthday treat each June)
Umm ... umm, I look forward to ... umm. What do you mean you don't like "umm"?


Four favourite foods:
Steak - very rare - and chunky chips
Pan fried foie gras
Tarka daal, saag paneer and naan.
Dark chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries or poached pears.

Four places I'd rather be:
Chez le Laquet - yes the real endroit not in my blog.
On the terrace of the Oyster Box Hotel.
Walking along the promenade towards Socoa, St Jean de Luz.
On the beach in the sunshine, just in front of Bamburgh Castle, gazing towards the Farne Islands.

F
our people I e-mail regularly:
Mother
Sis-in-law ... far better communicator than her husband, my brother.
Fiona the Fizzter.
The boss

Four people I've tagged:
Umm, I'm sure I tagged the last time - so if you want it, help yourself. Mind you there's an alien chicken and an inquisitive gal near Milwaukee who could both have a go if they're feeling up to it.

Ooh er... you've tagged me. I think perhaps I'll get Atyllah to do this one while I paint my nails or perm my ears...
