Farty's Fortunes

Tuesday, 25 March 2008

4 x 4

Saw this one in Jami's blog. Feel free to pick it up.

4 jobs I have had: Dishwasher in a Chinese restaurant in North Berwick (will wash dishes for Chinese food); Retail clerk in a stationary store (that job went nowhere); Computer Operator (with tapes whizzing around and boxes of punched cards and that - really); Automation Analyst (well, they call it a job: don't tell them I'd happily do it for free).

4 TV shows I actually watch: The Weakest Link (aka Don't Watch Alone: Mrs Farty and I love to mock the halfwits, esp. when we get the right answers; and we keep schtum when we get them wrong too); Torchwood (Captain Jack is hawt); Doctor Who (Captain Jack is hawt); Flight of the Conchords (those crazy Kiwis!).

4 places I have been: Åndalsnes in Norway (before I even went to England); New Orleans (pre-Flood: such a beautiful place); Paris, France (smelly; and French: avoid); Cape Town (sorry, just drifted off...I'd love to go back).

4 foods I like: Chocolate (bet you didn't expect that!); Sweet-and-sour chicken (see above); Mrs Farty's sausage casserole (nuff said); Mr Farty's World-Famous Banoffee Pie. (who knew?)

I may try making that pie (mmmm, pie) soon. I think with your helpful translations :) I should be able to figure it out. I'll let you know--I have a young friend who spent time at Oxford who'll make a good guinea pig...

Speaking of pig (see what I did there?), any chance Mrs. F would give up her sausage casserole recipe?

I second asking for the sausage casserole dish. :-)

I too have been to Paris and they are RUDE.

I have a lovely friend who is French and even she thinks French people are rude. I love France and the French, rude or not.

I like sausages too, although not necessarily in a casserole.

Mr Farty said...

Debi - If you can't get Amarula, try Baileys Irish Cream.

And Mrs F's sausage casserole recipe is a closely guarded secret between her and Mr Schwartz.

Jacki - Very rude.

Liz - Snap on the French friend.

And I've pinched your "spot the difference" idea. Ta x

Thanks for the tip. I doubt I'll be able to find the Schwartz's around here, but there is an Irish import store in town. I'll have to ask them if they can get it in...

Is Amarula the same as amaretto?

Mr Farty said...

Debi - Tell me you're kidding with that question. Amarula is made from the Marula fruit while Amaretto is made from apricot or almond pits. So, er, not the same. Not even remotely.
But if you want to try that, let me know how it goes ;)

Sounds good anyway. Thanks for the edumacashun. :} I'll look for it. But to my credit, they DO start with the same syllable...
