I don’t normally do these things, but just thought I’d give it a shot as I am living on my own this week with Danelle and kids in Moore River until Friday and I have lots of spare time. (It reminds me of what it is like to be single again!) It was Bek who ‘tagged me. If you haven’t been to her site then you ought to check it out. She has some great stuff to say.
1. What’s the most fun work you’ve ever done, and why?
Selling shoes at Myers Karrinyup on a Thursday night as a 17 year old. It was so boring that I used to approach customers with different accents – sometimes Irish, sometimes Yorkshire, sometimes American etc. It was a hoot until someone would come back for a second look and the ‘Irish’ guy they spoke to 15 mins ago was now an ‘American’… Ah… the things we used to do to stay sane in casual retail!…
2) Name one thing you did in the past that you no longer do but wish you did?
Running – I used to run a lot – which is the reason I can’t run now! Tendonitis of the ilio-tibial tract means I can walk 2 or 3 kms before the knee buggers up…
3A) What two things would you most like to learn or be better at, and why?
Writing – I think I could make a go of writing, but I am a bit unsure of the processes involved in going from idea to entire book.
How to fix things – I am much better at this, but usually if something breaks I tend to call a professional and spend my time doing stuff I enjoy!
3B) If you could take a class/workshop/apprenticeship from anyone in the world, living or dead, who would it be and what would you hope to learn?
Roland Allen – I would like to pick this man’s brains on missionary movements.
4A) What three words might your best friends or family use to describe you?
Focused, determined, passionate
4B) Now list two more words you wish described you.
5) What are your top three passions? (Can be current or past, work, hobbies, or causes)
Leaving out the God factor it would be, my family, the ocean, learning new things
6) Write-and answer-one more question that YOU would ask someone.
What wacky idea have you been playing with lately?
Ok – I would love to sell the house and use the $500 000.00 or so to buy a huge boat that we could live on. We could pen it up, live on it and be on the ocean any time we liked. Half a mil would buy a very very nice boat and I just reckon it’d be a bit of fun to live in a marina! If I were single again…
