This just in - dee dedee dee dededeee - Captain Incredible tagged by Becca - film at eleven...
The lovely and talented Becca way over in the Skullcave has tagged me with a meme. I have to answer x questions with four answers then add a question of my own.
Simple enough, I hear you say.
But is it?
Q1. Four jobs I've had or currently have:
1. Stacking shelves in a neighbourhood store - taught me the value of manual labour for minimum wage;
2. Sorting different-coloured pieces of paper in a Civil Service office - mindless work, and more of the above;
3. Working a public counter for a major public service body - not a bad job, except for the math; and
4. Datacentre Manager (sounds better than it is, trust me) for the aforesaid body. Home at last.
Q2. Four countries I've been to:
1. The Netherlands - Amsterdam, City of Canals;
2. France - Paris, City of Light;
3. USA - New York, Chicago (1 hour) and San Diego;
4. Germany - Munich, City of Beer.
Q3. Four places I'd rather be:
1. Not Neptune;
3. Aria Giovanni's house (I've developed something of a fondness for her - can't imagine why);
4. Where was I - oh, yes, 4. Molvania - out of morbid curiosity (Google it).
Q4. Four foods I like to eat:
1. Pepperoni pizza;
2. My very own pasta sauce;
3. Fillet of salmon in lime and ginger marinade on a bed of brown rice with sweet corn on the side and a decent Rioja or Cabernet;
Q4a. Four personal heroes, past or present:
1. Constable Benton Fraser, RCMP;
3. Ferris Bueller;
Q4b. Four books I've just read or am currently reading:
1. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman;
2. Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman;
3. Stan and Ollie: The Roots of Comedy by Simon Louvish;
4. The Day Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko.
Q4c. Four words or phrases I would like to see used more often:
3. Something something oranges something;
And Q4d - my own addition:
What four heroes (or group) would you like to see have a movie of their own:
1. Green Lantern (Hal Jordan);
2. The Avengers;
3. Thor (excuse me, 'The Mighty Thor');
4. Wonder Woman.
Okay - that was work.
I'm going to tag only two people with this, for the simple reason that the other two I had in mind don't have a blog yet.
So it's Lee at Quit Your Day Job
