Fantastic Four

August 7th, 2007

Here’s a quickie while I get back into the swing of things; a meme called “Fantastic Four” (for which I was tagged a while back by Lil). It kind of speaks for itself - I give four answers to four questions and then pass it on to four more people. So here goes…

4 jobs I’ve had in my life:

  1. A cleaner. My first summer job straight out of school, lasted for six weeks.
  2. An operative in a food factory. No very exciting, to be honest.
  3. Manager within the Chilled Food industry.
  4. Manager within the PVC industry.

Sorry that the jobs aren’t so exciting - that’s me all over!

4 places I have lived:

Oh, it all falls apart here. I live in North Lincolnshire. Have lived here all my life, so again - not very exciting. Bet you wished you’d read a different article?

4 places I have been on vacation:

  1. Ah-ha! I can join in on this one. First up is Arizona. Not so exciting for Americans maybe, but great for me (rather enjoyed sitting in an inner tube travelling down a mountain river for hours on end).
  2. Mexico, Puerto Vallarta. Loved this vacation and loved the food. Bring me Mexican food any day of the week and I’m a happy man.
  3. Greece. Many of the Greek islands, actually. I love the place, the atmosphere and the food. Oh! And my honeymoon was in Crete.
  4. Poland. Not technically a vacation as my wife is originally from Poland and we visit her family. It’s a much nicer place than you might imagine, with great summer weather and fab food.

4 of my favorite foods:

  1. Haggis, served with neeps and tatties. This harks back to my Scottish heritage perhaps, and is great served with a drizzle of Drambuie sauce, as per this recipe.
  2. Scallops. If I go to a restaurant and they’re on the menu I just can’t resist. Fresh scallops are worth their weight in, erm, seafood.
  3. Calves liver. You love it or you hate it, but for me it’s beautiful and tender when cooked well. It’s not as controversial as you think, either, when you consider the alternatives for male dairy calves (such as getting shot dead).
  4. Venison. Any game works well for me, to be honest, but a rare venison fillet is just delicious.

4 places I would rather be right now:

  1. Sitting in a nice cafe with some nice coffee and a slice of cake.
  2. Sitting in a boat whale watching - and actually managing to see something (unlike last time)!
  3. Having dinner in an old but romantic old hotel somewhere in the back and beyond.
  4. Enjoying my wedding with my wife one more time…

4 friends to tag for this meme:

  1. Vanessa.
  2. Trig.
  3. Michelle.
  4. Ari (last but by no means least).

That’s it from me. Back with some more of my nonsensical ramblings in a few days!
