Kristen Tagged Me!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I've just been tagged like a new puppy, so here for your reading pleasure are my history, habits and hopes. :-)

Four jobs I've had:
(Most of you know about the medical stuff, singing career, etc, so I thought I'd put up some of the smaller jobs you may not know I've done.

1. Dental Assistant (not qualified for this but I did it for 3 weeks to help the dentist out until he got a proper dental nurse)
2. Sheet metal worker- during school holidays in my teens (amazingly I still have all my fingers! Hard, dirty work and def. not recommended, though they did try to teach me how to weld which was cool.)
3. At age 15 I ran the Myer's Handcraft section and was best shop girl in the whole haberdashery/wools/laces and handcraft section {did this for 6 months full time when I got thrown out of home before I took myself back to school. I was very proud of the fact people would ask for me. The reason was I always told them straight what worked and was worth the money and what didn't, and you know, that translated into more sales, so everybody won. Plus I'd done most of the crafts and often helped if customers got stuck halfway through their project. You can't beat helpful service, even if your shop girl IS not long out of nappies. :-)
4. Face Painter for carnivals (I did the Christmas carnivals year after year and even got regulars. It was lovely to see the kids growing from one visit to the next)
5. Art Dealer's assistant (at Warana)
I could go on, but maybe next time. :-)

3. Lord of the Rings
4. Benny & June

Four TV shows I enjoy:
1. Better Homes and Gardens
2. Gilmore Girls (though it hasn't been on in a while)
3. Funniest Home Video Show
4. ack, couldn't think of a fourth. I don't watch much TV.

1. Nepal
2. Thailand
3. Vanuatu

There you go picking on me again. I'll get you yet - but maybe on a day your son hasn't tried to burn down the house or wreak destruction in some other way. Maybe....

You are presuming such days exist, Heather. I'm not convinced. Suffice to say he's been banished to a tent in the backyard for stealing chocolates out of his brother's advent calendar, and then putting the empty wrappers under his brother's bed and trying to convince me little bro ate them early--yeah, right. Maybe if he hadn't left chocolate fingerprints on the wall I woud have wondered. Honestly, what will he do next??? :-(

Don't you just want to throttle them?

So. You tagged me. You know this puts you on my list right? Meaning when I get the next Meme, YOU're IT! Which can be a good thing, I love your answers. :)

OK - I did it!

PS: You've never climbed Ayers Rock? I thought that was a requirement of all Australians! LOL I did it twice. Course the second time I was leading a group so I pretty much had to but it was colder than the dickens and I didn't want to. I also took a Camel to Dinner in Alice Springs and that was a lot of fun. Sigh. I love Australia.
