Regular listener and all around good egg, Daksh Sharma, has tagged me with the latest blog meme.  [Edit – Just noticed Clive Birnie tagged me too].  So here you go: eight things you didn’t know about me (to add to the five things I did earlier in the year!).

1. I used to be a county level chess player with an ELO rating of 2050 – that’s not very good, but I did win money at London tournaments.

2. My middle name is Robin … which is my Dad’s name, so no sniggering at the back!

3. I was a hooker in the school rugby team.

4. I’ve put on a stone since giving up smoking in October last year.

5. I am a huge fan of The Smiths and Morrissey who I’ve seen live on several occasions.  Favourite Smith’s lyric: “And now I know how Joan of Arc felt, as the flames rose to her roman nose and her hearing aid started to melt.”

6. The book I most want to read over the summer is: ‘How To Get Rich’ by Felix Dennis.

7. Paul, Neil, Adrian and I put on the world’s first podcasting conference in London during September 2005 and we didn’t all meet up until the day of the event.

8. You already know I used to be a goatherd, right?

OK, enough about me … I’ll tag: Sara, Matt, Gagandeep, Nelson, & Krishna.
