Flying Planes while Perfecting an Evil Laugh

Batman's eyebrows expert Carrie Harris has tagged me. Careful I don't tag you (evil laugh, which isn't really that evil at all).

Four goals I have in the next five years:

1. Sign with an agent.
2. Buy agent lots of pressies.
3. Make agent very rich.
4. Perfect evil laugh.

Four places I will visit someday:

1. New York
2. San Francisco - probably around the time the earthquake hits.
3. Pompeii
4. Hawaii

Four of my favourite foods:

1. Chocolate
2. Tuna Salad
3. Scouse
4. Pancakes with heaps of sugar and lemon juice. YUM!

Four jobs I've had:

1. Croupier - until the wee ball flew off the roulette wheel and travelled down a 'not-very-happy' man's arm.
2. Encouraged people to gamble in a betting shop - until a knife incident.
3. Scraped food off plates in a restaurant - never ate in that restaurant again.
4. Filed HIV reports.

Two places I've lived:

1. Morden Street :) Where I grew up
2. Radnor Place :) Where there were ghosts

Two places I'd like to live:

1. The unadventurous answer - Southport
2. The slightly more adventurous answer - San Francisco

Four things I'd do with my spare time, if I had any:

1. Learn to fly a plane (a small one not a jumbo jet). Though I can't drive a car!!!
2. Watch DVDs, read books, veg out.
3. Spend more time with my nephews and niece.
4. Learn to sing!!! (okay, why did the room just empty)

So who do I tag, EVERYONE!!! Only kidding - do it if you want to and don't if you don't.

Okay. I'm a lame midwestern american. What's scouse? :)

Michael Stone said...

And I'm from England, just down the road from Liverpool... What's scouse?

Aaron Polson said...

...alright, I'll bite. What is scouse?

Cate Gardner said...


Scouse is a bit like Irish Stew, only better :)

Michael Stone said...

Aah, down here in the wilds if Stoke on Trent we have something like that called lobby.

Cate Gardner said...

Michael, it's probably the same thing as if you look up 'Scouse' on Wikipedia it's traditional name is Lobscouse.

Michael Stone said...

I just looked up the entry for lobby on Wikipedia and it doesn't mention lobscouse, but the dishes sound remarkably similar and were both considered a poor man's mean. I think you could be on to something here.

Cate Gardner said...

I think I've discovered the secret of the universe. :)

Brenda said...

Well...I was going to ask about the scouse, but that is what happens when you get behind on blogs...someone beats you to it...grin...

Mary said...

One of my sisters worked as a croupier. She had to wear fishnet tights and a long, black satin side-split skirt, which drew attention to her knobbly knees. She only lasted 6 months.

Cate Gardner said...

Keep up, Brenda. :)

Mary, your sister lasted longer than me. All I remember of our uniform was hideous silver shoes.
