That LJ meme [Nov. 13th, 2004|09:55 am]
Peter Sheil
I've seen this in a few friend's journals and decided to do it as well.

Peace
peter

This is the problem with LJ, we all think we are so close, and we know nothing about each other. I'm going to rectify it. I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

No ... well I guess I should say "not as far as I know" to be strictly accurate although I'm reasonably certain I'm right.

I do regret that my wife and I never had a family - it was something we were planning at one point and I'd retire and be a house-husband (and design web sites to keep sane) but it didn't work out that way in the end.

Peace

OK...I wasn't gonna, but I figured what the hell, right? The meme will go onto my LJ momentarily...

How do you pronounce your last name? Should that be obvious? *heh*

That's not an easy question 'cos I like different things at different times :) My bigest downfall fot snacking is Yorkie bars; for a traditional English meal then either roast pork with lashings of crackling or roast beef and a full selection of veg; for comfort food to knock up - pasta in cheese sauce; for eating out in north London - Rani's vegitarian Indian, their banana curry is delicious; I've just found a sushi restaurant in Cardiff which is v good except that I get giddy 'cos the food moves around the restaurant on a conveyor-belt system and you help yourself as it goes past.

I guess if I had to choose just one then I'd go for the roast pork with Mum's home-made lemon merangue pie for afters.

Peace

ha!

Tell me about your current love life pretty please.
(Thought I would leave it as a nice open question as it's pretty personal) :-)



I don't think I'll put this in my journal so feel free to ask me anything here and I will tell.

Yes I can imagine that it much be hard at times. Feelings for a person don't just vanish easily like that. I was hoping you might have someone nice to - no person should be alone and lonely.

At the moment there isn't a lot of "after work" - it's 10 PM now and I'm typing this between test runs / compiles of some code. I used to go out to cinema, meals with friends etc.

I don't have a pet, too unsettled to have one. My job means that I may have to travel to a client's site at short notice so keeping a pet wold be hard to organise safely for the pet. I'd like a cat.

Boston, originally for pictures of the fall, as it can be very beautiful there, but I think I'll actually be a bit late for it. I'll be staying with my wife and her new partner

Peace
peter
