Four things (for Tom)

by Suw on January 27, 2006

I just read this in my aggregator, and from the opening syllables realised I could steal it. Almost verbatim. Including the disclaimer at the top.
Then I got to the bottom and realised I was supposed to. Possibly apart from the disclaimer at the top.

I'm doing this for Heather Tom and for anyone who ever reads this site because I've been too busy and too distracted trying to get some movement in various areas of my life to post here as much as I'd like. So even though it's filler…
Four jobs I've had:

Waitress (for four hours)
Editorial Assistant
Music Journalist
Social Software Consultant/Digital Rights Activist

Four movies I can watch over and over:

Shaun of the Dead
Wonder Boys
Pirates of the Caribbean

Four places I've liked

San Francisco

Four TV shows I love

Battlestar Galactica
Dr Who (new series)

Four places I've vacationed:

New York

Four of my favorite dishes:

Crepes with cinnamon apples
Chocolate and hazelnut terrine (from the George and Dragon, Burpham)
Mushroom and truffle soup (from The Bistro, somewhere in Berkshire)
My mum's Roast beef

Four sites I visit daily:

BBC News
Open Rights Group (and wiki)

Four places I would rather be right now:

In my own flat with my boyfriend
San Francisco
North Wales
Anywhere hot

Four bloggers minxes cheeky monkeys I am tagging:

Gary (because he doesn't blog enough)
Euan (because he doesn't blog enough about him)

I'm going to move to North Wales soon, and I'm not particularly keen on the idea. What do you like about the place ?!

Which part of north Wales are you moving to? Makes a big difference…. I love the north-west – Snowdonia and Pen Ll?n. Llanberis, tucked in between the mountains, has a great, laid-back climbing scene, and Pete's Eats. Abersoch has the sea, and the surfing scene. Castles, everywhere, lovely countryside. Great pubs in Caernarfon. Bangor's OK I suppose, I don't know it well, but it's a university town with all that that means…
The North-East, errmm I don't know so well. I have a feeling you're moving to this part, though?
????, btw!

Yeah, Emlyn's dead right – couldn't agree more. NE Wales is gorgeous – my friend Debs lived in Trefor for a while, see on one side, mountains on the other, just lovely place. She's now moved inland a bit, I think, but I've not been up to see her which is just poor behaviour on my part.
Caernarfon and Bangor are fine as towns, but the joy in NE Wales is the countryside. You don't want to live in Blaenau Ffestiniog though. 😉 Whatever the Anweledig boys say isn't true. (For the uninitiated, the have a song that says that the weather's always nice in Blaenau, but in fact the place has amongst the highest rainfall in the UK. It's on the east of the mountains, you see, so more rain.)
The area around Ruthin is lovely too, though, but stay away from Rhyl and the actual north coast.
I love the fact that so many people speak Welsh up there though, in the NE. I love being able to go into a shop and chances are that the person I speak to will speak back to me in Welsh. That's just me though.

Almost as much fun as the best blonde joke. I joined in!
