The voluble Elf has tagged me, and I can never resist a jolly good memeing, especially from friends.

Four jobs I have had in my life (not including my current job):

  • Level 37 sandwich filling crafter.
  • Level 14 filing clerk.
  • Level 17 office furniture installer.
  • Level 21 teacher’s assistant.

All summer jobs I’m afraid; I’ve been at my current job since, well, forever really.

Four films I have watched again and again:

  • V for Vendetta.
  • Gladiator.
  • The Fellowship of the Ring.
  • Valmont.

Like most people, I expect, there are several more films I could list here, so I’ve tried to pick a representative sample.

Four places I have lived:

  • Leeds, England.
  • Various places
  • In the county of
  • Kent, England.

I lived in Leeds when I went to university there. Other than that, I’ve stayed pretty close to home.

Four Programmes I love to watch:

  • Battlestar Galactica.
  • Heroes.
  • Firefly.
  • The Mighty Boosh.

Again, there are plenty of others both new and old, but this is a set of those that I’ve watched relatively recently and enjoyed tremendously.

Four Places I have been on vacation:

  • Hawaii.
  • Dubai.
  • Venice.
  • San Francisco.

I think San Francisco is still my favourite place, although Venice is a close second.

Four of my favourite foods:

  • Beef Wellington.
  • Risotto.
  • Saffron cake.
  • Gypsy tart.

I like food. This is barely a pebble on the peak of the food mountain of my victual desires.

Four favourite drinks:

  • Port (Warre’s Otima is divine).
  • Tea.
  • Bitter (Waggledance is a favourite).
  • Elderflower cordial/juice.

This makes me sound like a drunkard fop. Which might be accurate.

Four places I would rather be right now:

  • In a cottage in the Lake District, writing a book.
  • On a manned mission to Mars.
  • Diving in the Red Sea.
  • On stage at Shakespeare’s Globe.

And I’d also like a pony.

Four People I Command to Do This:

Not so much command, as extend the embracing arm of memefulness. I’m only allowed four, so I’ve tried to pick people who haven’t been tagged and have commented here. Apologies to anyone who might have wanted to do it. And apologies to those tagged who don’t want to do it. Maybe you can all get together, swap out the people who don’t want to do it with those who do, and then send fax confirmation in triplicate to me, and I… ah bugger it, it’s just a meme.

As the wise Yoda once said:

“Do, or do not. I don’t give a toss, and I’ll be dead in the next installment anyway.”

Or something.
