I knew I would get tagged at some stage! Haha!
One of the crazes going around on the Blogosphere right now is the “5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me” post. I have no idea where or who started it up, but just like one of those God awful chain letter things you get in your email from easily mislead friends, it’ll find you in the end.
My invitation comes from Jeremy Latham, an industry mate of Jordan’s who I met at a recent Web companies pre-release party. Actually Jordan was the one who tagged him in the first place. I found Jeremy’s revelations to be of lot’s of interest and I just hope I can provide equally inspiring ditties about myself. I’ve always been a pretty open book so I don’t know if I’m going to be able to drag up anything surprising, but here goes:
1. No caffeine for me!
This one’s lame, but it’s worth mentioning cause when people find out they look at me like I have a second head – I don’t drink tea or coffee. Don’t know why. Simply doesn’t appeal. I’ll have the odd cup of coffee every now and then just to be social, but it’s not like it’s a vice of mine like it seems to be for everyone else on the planet.
2. Hollywood’s Calling
I was once an extra in a movie with Rob Lowe and Thomas Haden Church. I can’t remember what the hell the movie was called, but we filmed late one night at the San Pedro Hilton in California. Something tells me my frames are lying on a cutting room floor somewhere…
3. HTML what??
I’ve never received any training in anything computer or design related. I taught myself the basics of HTML in order to throw a web page together for the QUT Advertising Club back in my first year of Uni in 1996 (you know, back when animated GIFs were cool) and have pretty much gone from there.
4. I used to be able to hold a note…
Contrary to recent popular belief, I actually used to be able to sing and hold a note or two. Back in the day, I did a couple of years at high school where I held the lead in the musical productions.
One year I played "Bill" in an Aussie classic "The Sentimental Bloke" and the following year I played "Seymour" in the ridiculously fun "Little Shop Of Horrors". Good times!
5. Happy little Vegemite
I spread Vegemite all over my Bananas before consuming them. Looks terrible… tastes amazing!
And with that, I pass the batton to another five of my Blogging buddies. If you see your name below, you have officially been “tagged” – give up some info on yourselves:
Right… I’m off to eat a banana “my way”!
