Grumpy tag answers

As I've - rather grumpily - pointed out in one of the comments below, I don't really hold with this "tagging" business. But given that I have been "tagged" by Nomad, after delaying a couple of days, I feel it would be churlish not to reply. So here goes - no mind-bending revelations here though, let me warn you..

Four jobs I've had
  • Petrol pump attendant (I always used to arrive to hear Paul Newbold - who did the shift before me - announce, "Mmm, we're £120 over on sweets, can you try and make up the difference?" EVERY week, he'd pull that stunt.)
  • A unicycle-riding Gorilla in a Theatre in Education show (not a great success, due to my inability to ride said unicycle. It was also one of the hottest summers on record, which meant that I and my gorilla suit were not particularly popular in the dressing room.)
  • Barman and BBQ chef (at my local pub - they actually told me they'd never seen anyone look less happy in a job.)
  • Management consultant specialising in the metals and minerals processing industries (Probably about as much fun as it sounds.)
Four films I could watch over and over
Four places I have livedFour TV shows I love to watch
  • "Without a Trace"
  • "Will & Grace" (see "Breakfast at Tiffany's" comment)
  • "Eastenders" (so unremittingly miserable)
  • "24" (am a strictly televisual adrenalin junkie)
Four places I have been on vacation
  • Bali
  • Tokyo
  • Chile
  • Sweden
Four websites I visit oftenFour of my favourite foods
  • Cream (I love it in all forms, single, double, whipped, aerated)
  • Chocolate (the darker the better)
  • Soy milk (weird, I know, it surprises even me but I love it)
  • Salmon skin maki (so far, found at only one restaurant in Paris which is handily close to my office.)
Four places I would rather be right now
  • Brazil (because I've never been)
  • Brighton (it's one of my favourite towns, I love it and my sis is there too.)
  • Watching the sunset, vodka and lime in hand, on a beach in Bali
  • With the one I love (ahhhhhh, of course!)
Four people I've tagged
  • No, no, no - this nonsense stops here... :))

How is your back rhino? Good answers, interesting. Soy milk and cream, were you breast fed? I love dark chocolate. A unicycle riding gorilla...that I would have paid in rubies to see! Take care of that back, kisses!!

Good boy! I like it when people listen to me. :-)

However, I'm not a great fan of tagging either although there are some memes that I'll volunteer for because they ARE interesting.

Wonderful answers Rhino. I will have to rent that Night of the Hunter movie, it sounds great!
