Meme from Jojo

Fernando de Noronha, Brazil, May 2005
Originally uploaded by frida world.

I've seen this on other blogs, then my lovely friend Jolene emailed it to me asking for my answers and I can never say no to her.

A. Four jobs I have had in my life:
Brine bath operator, cheese factory
Fairy/storyteller for children's parties
Selling lotto tickets
Strategic Advisor to the Race Relations Conciliator

B. Four movies I would watch over and over.
I guess I don't really watch movies over and over, there are too many I haven't seen yet.

C. Four places I have lived
Tokoroa (NZ)
Piha (NZ)

D. Four TV shows I love to watch
The West Wing
Six Feet Under
Arrested Development

E. Four places I have been to on holiday
Brazil (scuba diving in Fernando de Noronha on my 32nd birthday - see photo above)
New York City (photo booths and cocktails at Pharmacy Bar on my 30th birthday)
Egypt (snorkling in Dahab on my 28th birthday)
Turkey (dinner in Istanbul with my parents on my 25th birthday)

F. Four of my favourite foods:
Porridge - comfort food of the highest order
Fresh fish
Yoghurt (thick, creamy and all natural)

G. Four places I'd rather be right now:
Edinburgh Terrace, Berhampore, Wellington (at my place, Mary's or Rachael and Peter's)
On any beach in New Zealand, with my tent, a novel and a bottle of chilled Sauvignon Blanc
At Nikau Cafe with any or all of the Brunette Mafia and a bottle of Atarangi Summer Rose
At the Matterhorn with my Book Club ladies and a bottle of Rabbit Ranch Pinot Noir

H. Four things I want to achieve:
Learn to be messier
Meditate for more than 17 minutes without fidgeting
Raise a child
Build a business, alone or with like-minded folks

"Fairy/storyteller for children's parties." What can I say? It's just magic.

I think you should write more about me; how great I am, how Hulk-like, how I can quote the Marx brothers, my keen fashion sense and especially my unreasonable dancing prowess.

What about that guy?! So humble...
Can't wait to meet Jake after that lil spiel!

And if you need any pointers on how to be messier, you know you need look no further. Some Virgo I am huh?
