5 Things You May Not Know About Me

Robert Scoble’s done it. Danny Sullivan’s done it. And because Philipp Lenssen blog-tagged me, I now have to tell you five things that you might not know about me. (Of course, whether you already know these things depends on how well you know me...)

  1. I am a 1st Dan black belt in Shotokan karate. I obtained this when I was just 10 years old but haven’t trained for the past 15 years or so.

  2. At the age of 14, I took my French GCSE exams – that’s one year earlier than most school pupils in the UK at that time – and I achieved a grade A.

  3. Before computers started to dominate my life, my time was mostly spent being involved with various music and drama groups. I’ve been known to play the piano, keyboards, trumpet and guitar. (And I’m planning to go back to playing my trumpet and guitar on a regular basis again in 2007!)

  4. My Internet nickname between around 1997 and 2000 was mysticbelly. (And if you’re really interested, you can even take a look at my old website that I never finished...)

  5. My fingers and toes are a bit double-jointed, meaning I can bend some of them backwards until they practically touch the back of my hand.

Trying to think of five things was pretty difficult actually. Maybe that means everyone knows everything about me already... I dunno. Anyway, now I’ve done, I’m blog-tagging:

Whether or not they’ll bother with this stupid game is another matter entirely. I know it’s the kind of thing most people (including me!) can’t really be bothered with...

So did I! I think they still do it now. Unfortunately, I only got a B!
