Five things

23 Dec

Richard tagged me on the ‘five things you didn’t know about me’ meme. I tried ignoring it, but he’s almost at his fundraising target for the charity cycle in Kenya, it’s nearly Christmas, so why be churlish?

  1. At university, I represented my institution at four competitive sports: football, tennis, badminton, table tennis.
  2. Despite this the most withering assessment I ever received at a graduate job interview was ‘not exactly a team player’. Spot on.
  3. I’ve always been an amateur. I’ve been a schoolteacher, publisher, editor, reporter, PR consultant and PR lecturer – but have no formal qualifications for any of these.
  4. I’ve been married for 20 years. No kids, two cats. (In Sicily, the matron who was told that Gail had no children – but two cats, muttered ‘Madonna’ and hurriedly made the sign of the cross.)
  5. My best Christmas day was spent in Seville. Sorry to offer no seasonal cheer, but I now think Morocco or Tunisia would be even better.

Time for a break, so I’m not spreading this ‘idea virus’.

    I quite liked this meme. I usually don’t pass on these ideas, but most people revealed some really interesting things about themselves. I think Tom Murphy tagged you as well.
