I've Been Tagged...

so, in the spirit of creative playfulness, here are the questions...and the answers. If you don't like it, blame that Dijanne Cevaal !!!

Four Jobs You've Had:
Oh... writing on a local paper (lasted all of two months, the paper folded...)
Working with long term unemployed people
Teaching and tutoring foreign languages, French and Russian, mostly.
Self Development Manager for the Scottish Prison Service (my favourite title)

Four Movies You Could Watch Over and Over:

Err. Don't really watch movies. Still... Singing In The Rain, It's A Wonderful Life, White Christmas, The Snowman.

Four Places You've Lived:

Mmm. Newtongrange, a tiny village near Edinburgh in Scotland, where my mother's family comes from.
Moscow, in Russia, where I lived for six months during a student exchange
Strathpeffer, a Victorian spa village near Inverness, Scotland.
And where we live now, Longham, near Dereham, in Norfolk, England.

Four TV Shows you love to Watch:

Silent Witness. Taggart. Creature Comforts. That's about it. Not all that convinced about the last one, either... for a visual person, I really don't like tv or film...

Four Places You've Been on Vacation:

Nurnberg, Germany.
St Petersburg, Russia
Nairn, Scotland
Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Four Websites You Visit Every Day:
Yahoogroups (it's inevitable when your mail goes into the ether...or in this case, the spam catcher, before it hits your inbox!)
Other than that, not sure I do visit *anywhere* every day...

Four Of Your Favorite Foods:

Chocolate. Would be for all four places but I love...
Chili
Curry
Chicken and bacon in a cream sauce, with tagliatelle.

Four Places You'd Rather Be:

Oh, easy peasy. I'm in the right place, here.

Four Albums You Can't Live Without:
Hissing of Summer Lawns, Joni Mitchell
Hourglass, James Taylor
Remastered, the best of Steely Dan
And, John Martyn

Thanks, Dij, this kept my mind off the doctor's appointment I have later in the day! Now, who can I tag....
