2 Memes and A Result

Father Bell sent me a circulating Meme which I have passed on to some folks. I reckoned I'd stick it on here as well to fill the space and to invite more responses.

Four things about me! Me! Me!...

C) Four places I have lived:

D) Four television shows I watch:
University Challenge
Grey's Anatomy

E ) Four (favourite) places I have been on holiday:
San Francisco

F) Websites I visit daily:
The Guardian
BBC News

G) Four of my favourite foods:

I) Four CDs

Mr Beast:: Mogwai

Gwan respond.
