Four Things

I don't know where this originated, but I saw a few people making lists yesterday. At first I was going to ignore it then Sean McKendall tagged me, so here goes:

  3. Hastings
  4. Manchester

Four places I would rather be right now:

So, there you go, 32 things you didn't really want to know.

    Liam. It's like those pen letter things - "pass on to ten people or your dog will die" kind of thing - I'm just not in to it.

    About your website. What gives? Why does it resize my browser to full screen (I hate that!) when clicking on "enter" merely opens a small popup?! Why!? Why the music? Why the impossible to use navigation in Flash?! Nothing social about that.

  2. A liking for Dumb and Dumber is a simple litmus test for true intelligence (a liking for Office Space is the backup).

    BTW, you've never had my lasagna ;)

    Oi.... I tagged you too ;)

  3. Know what you mean about the chain letter stuff....

    As for the website, yea, it does kinda suck - on my list of things to do something about this year.....

    And I can't even claim any "credit" for it as I bought it as a template.

    But I'm more stuck in Notes client stuff - hence my interest in understanding web development that you cover so well.

    Keep up the good work..

  4. Liam, your site is not so bad...You have to try very hard to click a link because the spots where you have to click on are fleeing from my cursor...

  5. I never get meme tagged, mostly because I'm still rubbish at blogging. But I asked my 6 year old for his answers:

    jobs: 1. Putting my own shoes on. 2. Eating all my dinner up. 3. Doing my homework. 4 Tidying my toys away.

    movies: 1. The Goonies. 2. The Philosopher's Stone. 3. The Chamber of Secrets. 4. Ice Age

    places lived/stayed: 1. Whiston Hospital 2. Whiston. 3. Knowsley village. 4. Beddau (South Wales).

    tv shows: 1. Raven. 2. Takeshi's Castle. 3. Scooby Doo. 4. Adverts!

    holidays: 1. Barmouth. 2. Kefalos. 3. Shell Island. 4. Aberdaron

    food: 1. pizza. 2. Yorkshire pudding. 3. Sweet corn. 4. cola bottles.

    websites (not daily): 1. {Link} 2. {Link} 3. www.zedzdead.net. 4. ??

    places: 1. Beavers. 2. Out on my bike. 3. At any of my cousins houses. 4. Wacky Warehouse

    I've read this blog for over a year (great stuff Jake, I look forward to the new year's articles), and I have to comment on this one... I am in complete agreement with you on Zoolander. I guess it is one of those movies you either hate or you love, because all my friends hate it, and I love it.

    Anyway, Jake, I give you props for that choice film. It is quality.

    As for your TV shows... I haven't heard of any of them...
