I'm not one to jump on a bandwagon…

…but as everyone else seems to be stealing this questionaire from each other, I thought I’d have a go too:

Things you may not have known about me:

A) Four jobs I have had in my life:
1. Making sandwiches for the Otago cricket team (ok, it was only for one weekend, but it gave me great bragging rights at school for a few weeks!)
2. Medical secretary in an AIDS hospital in London (it was only a couple of weeks’ temping, but it was a fascinating place to work)
3. Maths teacher (though some of you probably already knew/guessed that)
4. Teaching rifle-shooting, rock-climbing and desk-top publishing (though not necessarily all at the same time) to 6 year olds

B) Four movies you would watch over and over:
1. All the Star Wars movies (yes, even The Phantom Menace!)
2. All the Lord of the Rings movies (Actually, revise that to say all the Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings movies – I don’t mean that scarey animated one!)
3. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
4. Fight Club (actually, do I have to stop at 4? I’ve thought of loads more now!)

C) Four places you have lived:
1. In a truck
2. Various places in the UK, including London and a small village outside Wolverhampton
3. Darmstadt, Germany
4. At one time or another, every province of the South Island

D) Four TV shows you love to watch:
1. Dr Who
2. Coronation Street (I know, I know, but everyone has to have a guilty pleasure)
3. Scrubs (yay, a new series has finally started!)
4. Um, does it have to be something that’s on TV at the moment? I can think of loads of things we’ve got on DVD and watch over and over (mostly British series that aren’t shown over here), but not much that I go out of my way to watch on TV right now.

E) Four places you have been on vacation:
(Ok, this one is going to be really tough to narrow down to 4 – at last count I’d been to about 30 different countries in the course of my travels… I’ll have to just pick 4 at random or something)
1. Zanzibar
2. Iran
3. Norway
4. Burkina Faso (bonus points if you even know where that is without consulting an atlas – I didn’t until I went there!)

F) Websites you visit daily: (or semi-weekly)
1. Here, of course
2. Bookcrossing
3. Various forums (though not as often now as I used to)
4. Various webcomics

G) Four of my favorite foods:
1. Chocolate
2. More chocolate
3. Lots of chocolate
4. Um, did I mention chocolate?

H) Four places I would rather be right now:
1. Anywhere sunny (it’s cold and windy and raining here, with snow threatened for later – anyone suffering a heatwave wanna swap?)
2. Any country where I’ve never been before (maybe with the exception of the Lebanon right now)
3. At home, sitting in front of the fire with a good book
4. In space

I) Five friends I think will respond:
Assuming 5 people even read this, they’ve probably already come across it elsewhere, and anyway I don’t want anyone to feel obligated, so,
1. I don’t know
2. No idea
3. Could be anyone
4. Somebody, possibly
5. Nope, still no idea
