Egads! Derek tagged me, so here we go with some friday meme fun.

Four jobs I've had

  1. Bookseller - three different bookshops, the most fun was SF/Crime specialists Pulp Fiction.
  2. Copywriter
  3. Assistant Web Developer (although there was no Web Developer to assist...)
  4. Web Standards Developer

Four movies I can watch over and over

  1. The Blues Brothers
  2. Good Will Hunting
  3. Ronin
  4. The Birdcage

I don't think I've ever intentionally set out to watch Good Will Hunting or The Birdcage; but if they're on I discover I've sat down just for a minute... There are a few others like Aliens, Blade, The Princess Bride, Go, Gone In 60 Seconds (oh, the cars, drool).

Four places I have lived

  1. *sigh* I generally don't admit... Ipswich. But it was in a heritage-listed sandstone house (open house once a month).
  2. Glamorganvale, a country town near Ipswich. We had a deer farm (as a second business for my parents).
  3. Brisbane, Emmanuel College (that's a residence, if you're American) for two of my university years.
  4. Brisbane, in a succession of share houses and rentals: Ashgrove, Newmarket, The Gap, Indooroopilly, St Lucia, Toowong, Taringa. If you want to sell a house, let me move in. It'll sell.

Four television shows I love to watch

  1. Mythbusters
  2. Rage - bumping Iron Chef after Cam Pegg's post reminded me I cannot leave out the reason I've stayed up half the night on so many occasions.
  3. Top Gear
  4. Red Dwarf

Four places I have been on vacation

  1. Point Lookout, Stradbroke Island (just off the Brisbane coast)
  2. Sydney
  3. Melbourne
  4. Tasmania

Yeah, I really need to get out of the country at some stage.

Four of my favourite dishes

  1. Noodles, thick noodles (like hokkien) in just about any style. Thai in particular or yakisoba from good teppanyaki places.
  2. Spaghetti or simple pastas (eg. proscuitto, tomato, basil, pine nuts and a sprinkle of parmesan)
  3. Beef and Guinness pie. With a pint of Kilkenny and about a week to digest it all.
  4. Steak and chips. Healthy be damned ;)

Four websites I visit daily

  1. Google
  2. Gmail
  3. Blogger
  4. Newsfeeds (particularly for work) and Livejournal syndication (for the vast numbers of people I know with LJs)

Wow, I guess Google really does control my brain. I don't really visit specific websites every day, any more. There are some webcomics without feeds that I visit every couple of days, like The Whiteboard.

Four places I would rather be right now

  1. In the shade on top of the cliffs at Point Lookout, with the breeze and the sound of the sea, watching the turtles swimming in the surf.
  2. London (well actually, the UK would be more accurate - lots of places I want to see)
  3. Berlin (I've no idea why, but one day I just realised I want to go there)
  4. Melbourne or Sydney

Four bloggers I am tagging

  1. Andrew Krespanis
  2. Chaals
  3. Nick Caldwell (although he'll say he doesn't do memes...)
  4. OK, the fourth one is tough. I keep going to tag someone and they're already tagged! So I'm throwing this one open: I met a lot of people at WE05 who didn't have cards (or had run out). The result is I don't have a URL for said people. If you're one of them, and you're reading this, consider yourself tagged :)
