Best Job Ever Had: My current one as a bricklayer although I can't understand anyone wanting to work, as we all have so much other stuff to do with our time, surely you can only enjoy your work if it's your hobby. If it wasn't for the fact we all need money I don't think anyone would want to work, unless of course you lead a rather boring life 8-)
Worst / Most Embarrassing Job Ever Had: A wood machinist at Kebrico toys
Hobbies: Music, playing in a band, films, fantasy/sci-fi stuff, good food, the pub, jiving on the dance floor, oh and sex ;-)
Dislikes: Violence, idiots who go out for a drink and a fight, chavs, smug people who think they are better than you ( who make themselves so much worse than you by acting that way ). Commentators who call linesmen assistant refs and who basically talk crap. I probably have a lot more dislikes but I think that's enough for now hehe.
