5 things you didn’t know about me

MarkJo (whose accent is definitely funnier than mine despite what he claims) has tagged me in this meme... and as my regular readers will know I don’t do memes but, hey, there is always the first time I guess... :-)

1. Before deciding to study computer science in the UK (also known as “before my mum insisted I study”) I was a magician in Greece and actually appeared live on national Greek television. I still have the business cards!

2. When I am behind the wheel I just can’t help speeding. I have 6 points on my license (gained with my Punto GT Turbo); with my brand new Golf GTI 2.0 (200bhp) I am bound to increase them. Problem is that the more points you get the more chances of losing the license and that would most definitely mean losing my job. Not joking, this is a dead serious concern of mine and probably what will force me into working for myself full time from home.

3. I love travelling and have been almost everywhere. If I could live anywhere in the world it would be Australia where I’ve spent 3 unforgettable weeks. Only issue is convincing the wife who prefers Europe as our residence...

4. While competitive at most things I do, the one I always brag about is chess. If you think you have what it takes, challenge me!

5. The last thing you probably don’t know about me is that I have switched the search engine of this blog to LIVE. Check out the cool interface on the left... type “NETMF” in the box and hit enter, you know you want to :-)

Doh... I almost hit “submit”, but this is a meme so I have to tag 5 other bloggers. Let’s see if these guys are listening and want to play:
Angelos , Eileen , Mike , Peter , Scott.
