5 More Things About Me

April 20th, 2007

There’s a been a meme circulating the blog world for quite a while now called “5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me”. I’ve already participated once, but was tagged again a while back by Vanessa from What Geeks Eat.

So, without further ado, here’s 5 more things that you didn’t know (or care) about me

Dizzy The Egg1. I’m super-retro when it comes to computer games. I’m currently playing the entire Dizzy series, originally from the 1980s and 90s. Hands up if you remember Dizzy the adventuring egg? What do you mean, you don’t? Am I the only crazy guy here?

2. I lost my last job through foodblogging. Ok, so it wasn’t quite that simple - but the point remains, that bosses don’t like you using the internet when you should be working.

3. My christmas gifts this year were great. They included a pasta machine, signed book / dvd of A Cook On The Wild Side by Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, and a tea box set with some delicious fruity loose teas and an infuser. You’re not impressed? Pah!

4. I’m typing this from my Brother in law’s computer in Poland (I’m here on vacation right now). By the time you read this, I might not be.

5. I can’t think of a number 5. H0w about some useless trivia - I’m a big fan of both Billy Connolly (Scottish comedian) and Stephen King. Did I mention that in my first “5 Things” article? I really can’t remember…

I can’t think of many people to tag here who haven’t already done this meme before. So I’ll tag Cherry, Trig, Antony, Julia (her response here, and Dagmar. If any of you guys have already done this I apologise, but feel free to either ignore or play along as you see fit.

Back with another recipe in the next few days!

    Did you ever play Dangerous Dave? I wish I still had it…

    Apparently your boss wasn’t suitably impressed with your ability to muti-task - how short-sighted!
