Five Things

If you don't know what this is all about then you've obviously been spending too much time in World of Warcraft instead of in 'The Blogosphere'. Well that's just fine, you need to save up for that new armour. I understand.

Anyway, I was tagged by Nick so I need to write five (less than obvious) facts about myself on my blog and then tag five more people and tell them to do the same. Uh-oh, this is where I get worried that I'm not interesting enough. Anyway, here goes.

My five things

1. I was taught History by Mike Atherton. He went to cricket-mad Manchester Grammar School, as did I, and he returned out of season to do some teaching.

2. I had a cup of tea with Paul Hartnoll from Orbital in 1996.

3. I can beat-mix records with impressive accuracy, but now only DJ sporadically with other peoples' records when drunk at parties (and therefore mix them less accurately).

4. I believe that the Commodore 64 is one of the coolest things ever. I still own mine but some of the keys don't work, thanks largely to Daley Thompson's Decathlon.

5. I once performed Walk This Way by Run DMC / Aerosmith, karaoke style, solo, in a packed bar at a French ski resort. When I stepped onto the stage I thought the five people who were going to accompany me were still behind me. I don't think I did the best Steve Tyler.

My five nominees
