    I like to surf. Especially when I'm the only one out.

    I wish I could claim that as all my own work, however It is stolen from an email I was once sent.

    The legend is that some kid put all of this on his application for university in the states. I think it is a classic.

    I did once put it on my self assessment form at my previous company just before I was planning to leave anyway.

    Loved the look on the directors face! :lol:

    So the search for my identical brother goes on :wink:

    My lad is applying to university at the moment. I don't think i'll share it with him. Knowing him he'd probably use it . :lol:

    as cycling is now starting to take me over i shall try to remember what else i used to do before this happened.

    The other thing taking over my life is work - the clever bastards gave me the job which i always wanted - Environmental Manager. Now I work every hour they let me - developing policy, finding intiatives, persuading our staff to be eco friendly, etc. and there's the added benefit that I cycle to all my site visits these days.

    aprt from that - i write a Blog - and have been for 5 years or so trying to write quite a serious book about modern history but keep getting side-tracked.

    Music - always have an MP3 player with me - so much more convenient than lugging around CDs - now I always have my music library with me wherever I go.

    Gigs - these days I mostly go to see The Fall, Gary Numan, and visiting American country acts.

    Reading - I've always got about 5 books on the go.

    Film - get through about 3 or 4 films a week.

    comedy - there's nothing that beats live stand-up in a little club.

    Fortean stuff - weirdness has always been an obsession of mine from being into UFOs when I was 11, to now - interested in conspiracy theories - where do they come from - why do people believe them - are any of them true?

    What can i say, you are right my friend. I have been remiss and unworthy in my task as blog master. I shall endeavour to update after training tonight.8)

    In order of "importance" (to me)

    For fun:

    Surf
    Run
    MTB ride (sort of not cycling to roadies)
    Play on the boat - waterski, whizz to the pub, etc
    Open water swim
    Weights (at home now)
    Upsetting almost everyone on any internet forum without meaning to

    Out of necessity but still fun:

    Walk the dog (but usually run with her)
    Look after the little boy (10 months old)
    Run a company
    Admire the wife
    Look after the slightly OTT garden ("extreme" gardening)

    Plus the usual enjoyment of food, nice wine, etc

    As of Monday, I did my first bit of film work. Got a call to take part in the combat scenes for the new Ridley Scott / Russell Crowe Blockbuster Nottingham (Robin Hood). Trip down to Pinewood Studios and a couple of hours spent in the watter tank battering some Frenchie for God and St George!
