A great prize & challenge
No, not a Traffic Warden, In a recent survey I was apparently the third least trusted profession coming above Estate Agents and Journalists!!
Do you want to carry on guessing or some clues.
Looking forward to the vote.
Malcs, thankfully I'm the best kind of lawyer - we specialise in alcohol, food and entertainment licensing... You can all thank me later
Reg, I'm intrigued - do tell
xine267 - aw thanks - I'm so glad I 'came out', feels like Careers Anonymous on here this afternoon!
As for all the comments about negative posts/ill-treatment of hopefuls last year, I guess unfortunately that it is all too easy to throw insults at someone over the internet who you've never met - at the end of the day, you just have to feel sorry for someone who gets their kicks that way!
I'm looking forward to the questions about my running, lifestyle, ambitions etc and anything else, we'll just have to roll with chin up and all that!
thankyou guys for all your useful and friendly advice, and congratulations Emma C on a new PB
Steve, that makes two of us....come on Reg spill the beans?
So far I have met loads of friendly and helpful people on here. So for any negative comments that we may get, just remember all those positive ones so far!
the only bad mechanics ive met are the ones that tried to con me once at reg vardy, the rest ive met have been so helpful. Are mechanics really the third least trusted professions?
Reg Vardy eh, as in Reginald Vardy?...OMG!
steve.....i now have to try and balance the fact that you love bacon ( very positive ) against the fact you are a lawyer.( which to me is worse than a politician and a tabloid journalist put together..........)
so steve i need some more positive facts............what are you views on skinny dipping..........holding doors for ladies and what is your favourite alcoholic drink........
this question can also be open to everyone who does a job that i distrust
Seren - yes, I do appear to be a form of human Marmite...!
Skinny dipping... I went skinny dipping once in St Lucia and, I have to say, loved every minute of it. Although I think you need to be careful when choosing your venue - I certainly won't be repeating that somewhere off Southend Pier in the middle of October! There's only so times you can blame the cold...
I have always taught my son to hold doors for ladies - he is a proper little gent, so proud
I do enjoy a nice, cold lager. Not very exciting, I'll admit, but I am a bit of a lager snob - got to be Budweiser, none of that cheap rubbish! When I'm cooking, I'll crack out the wine and pretend I know what difference it makes when chosing Shiraz or Merlot...
And, as I said, we're alcohol lawyers, so we're responsible for keeping all those lovely local boozers open!
Phewph - not Reg Vardy then. Sarah, you can come out from behind the sofa now.
I like your strategies here, very government-esque - create the expectation of something terrifying then when the big reveal comes there's a sigh of relief. Expertly executed gentlemen
Haha if only I were that Machiavellian, Malcs!
In other news, just because I'm currently telling everyone I knew and quite a few I don't, I've just had my degree result confirmed and I managed to get a First Class Honours degree... this could actually be the best week ever lol
Thank you Sarah and well done Steve - what an amazing week!
Seren - I've started pool training and have done one spin session ... booking first Tri in May or June! I'm moving to the dark side - tee hee.Ten year plan is to do an Ironman!!!!
I have no SPring marathon booked but maybe the threads will motivate me!
