Meme because I'm bored.

A) Four jobs I have had in my life:

  • Database Administrator (well, that's what the organisation I work for calls it, although Sarah says that in the wider world the term has different connotations).
  • General PA
  • Data Entry clerk
  • Telesales bod

B) Four movies I would watch over and over (or have watched over and over):

  • Back to the Future. The first one in particular, although I love all three.
  • Titanic
  • Love, Actually. Even if last time I watched it, it made me depressed.
  • Star Wars. The original one.

C) Four places I have lived (I'm struggling with this one!:

  • Chelmsford (three different homes)
  • Roehampton (various homes in and around there during my time at university)
  • Bishop's Stortford
  • Chorleywood

D) Four TV shows that I watch:

  • Doctor Who
  • Ashes to Ashes
  • Chuck
  • Have I Got News For You

E) Four places I have been:

  • Cardiff
  • Swansea
  • Egypt
  • Pasadena

F) Four people who email/message me (regularly):

  • Sarah
  • My mum
  • I can't think of anyone else! I get comment notifications from LJ (when it's working), but that's several people really; and also there's a Yahoo group I belong to for the local Doctor Who group, but apart from that it's mostly Amazon, eBay, various other subscriptions, and a bit of spam. Does this make me desperately sad?

G) Four of my favourite foods:

  • Grilled chicken with new potatoes, peas, and lashing of salad cream.
  • The same, but with mackerel instead of grilled chicken.
  • Fish & chips.
  • Cheese & tomato pizza.

H) Four places I would rather be right now:

  • At Sarah's.
  • At "home" (which for this week at least is Tim's place).
  • In the countryside.
  • On a romantic weekend break somewhere with Sarah, possibly in Paris.

I) Four friends I think will respond:

  • Experience has taught me not to guess at these things...

J) Four things I am looking forwards to this year:
Well, with the honeymoon out of the way, that reduces the number, but:

  • Moving offices to Milton Keynes (hopefully next Monday).
  • Moving in with Sarah properly (hopefully over the weekend).
  • Hopefully selling Sarah's place in Barking, buying a new place all of our own, and moving in there properly so we're no longer living out of boxes. I darned well hope that happens to this year.
  • Our first wedding anniversary. Which will probably be followed by a brief holiday somewhere, maybe back in Swanage.
