Tag - I'm it (or at least one of them)

, posted: 1-Jan-2007 15:54

Craig tagged me a few days ago - but I've been cleansed away from computers (man that feels good) and missed it - but I found it in my ego feed (see the end of Craigs post)

So for what its worth - here are five things you didn't know about me.

1) I used to be into Tae Kwon Do - and was training for the 1992 Olympics where is was going to be a demonstration sport. This was all interrupted by #2

2) I'm a Christian - not born into a Christian home, but I became a Christian when I was 17 - changing my ideas of what I should do with my life (see #1). If you know me you probably know this, but lots of people dont know it.

3) I didn't go to University - instead I spent five years working in a Freezing works as a Meat Inspector. I also think that university can sometimes be overrated

4) Two weeks after I met my wife I decided she was the one for me (I was 18). Consequentially we married young (20 and 21) and are still together.

5) When I was at school I was the quiet shy guy who did pretty average in school and got picked on by my peers.

Who to tag... Lets do a circuit of the .Net Bloggers in NZ.

Peter Jones - who probably thinks this is silly and childish and may refuse to participate.

Jeremy Boyd - MS Regional Director and all round nice guy

Chris Auld - MS Regional Director and proud owner of red shoes

Ivan Porto Carrero - NZ web dev guru

.Net User Group Blogger of the year JD should also be included...

Lets see if any of them read my blog

Hmmm. Good summary. But you need to add http: in front of URLs...
