1. The rules of the game get posted on the beginning.
2. Each player answers the rules about himself [or indeed herself].
3. At the end of the post, the player tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they’ve been tagged and asking them to read his [or her] blog.
What I was doing ten years ago:
In 1998, I was at Uni, so I was probably throwing some irritating cunt out of Teviot, probably the best students' union in the world. That and drinking heavily. No change there then.
Five things on my To-Do list today:
(Not in any particular order)
Pick up an old computer from another building at work
Eat some nice cheese my pal brought back from Amsterdam
Sort out my drinking arrangements for the weekend
Put on a washing
Write some angry emails to the Metro
Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
"I'll tell you what I'd do, man: two chicks at the same time, man."
Bonus points for knowing where that quote comes from.
Three of my bad habits:
Not being rude enough to people who deserve it.
Voting. It only encourages them.
Picking my nose.
Five places I’ve lived:
(Not counting where I was born, I didn't stay there for long enough to count)
Five jobs I’ve had:
Shop ASSistant, Iceland (The frozen foods place, not the country)
Mainframe Operator (On an IBM 3090-200J, ph33r)
Porter and Security chap at Pollock Halls, Edinburgh University
Systems Administrator / Systems Manager at lots of places.
Five books I’ve recently read:
Persuader (Lee Childs)
Dead Souls (Ian Rankin)
Set in Darkness (Ian Rankin)
The one that got away (Chris Ryan, of the Hereford Author's Club)
Pandemic (James Barrington)
Five people or communities I’m going to tag:
Bollocks to that. People will do it if they want to.
But I will tag Doctorvee, because he should really be studying for his exams. And J. Arthur Macnumpty, again, because I can.
I am unlikely to get any more bad luck, or other such bullshit from breaking the meme. Although as my friend Peter Salus often says, "It's usually at its darkest before it goes completely black."
