Write the Theme Tune, or The Show Must Go On

After the premiere of Mrs G's play, Tempest Tossed, I've felt a bit like I should have my own semi-autobiographical play. Ignoring the fact that "The life of a Number's Guy" won't be that exciting (as I am not involved in deciphering the Enigma code, just…

My Rules, or I Walk the Line

Life is a mess if you don't try to impose a little order on it. It's not possible to completely programme every little moment but it handy to have a set of rules. The rules I have are not very complex, in fact most of them are copied from major religions…

Sunday Lie In - Never had a Dream Come True - S Club 7 - Relax this morning with a bit of cheese #sclub7

Rounding off S Club week is that quintessential 90’s ballad style of white fur jackets, snowy background and pointing at the camera.

Meat, or Food for the Soul - why are carnivore's persecuted in office-health campaigns? #bacon #meat

I'm not arguing against a healthy lifestyle, I realize that for a long and good life a well balanced diet and plenty of exercise is essential. I know that sitting on my sofa eating chips or a juicy steal is not that good for my heart and waistline. What I…

My local football team is in trouble. They have a new manager (but same old bad results), don't own their stadium and have no plan for the future. I should at this point admit to not being a Coventry City supporter but as they are my local 'big' club I…

Story

If I write entrepreneur, visionary and independent thinker firstly it makes me sound like a nobber. Mostly it would be a complete lie.
Introduction

As way of a basic introduction let’s do some facts.

  • I'm 33 years old
  • Male
  • Short
  • A geek

Well that was easy, what next? A brief potted history of my life?

Born, went to schools, went to Uni, halls burnt down, left after a year, worked in banks, went back to uni, left after 4 months, worked as an MI then Data then Marketing then Database analyst for various companies.

I've nearly died once.

I've been fired, sorry 'made redundant' once.

My heroes are scientists.

I like melodies.

I like sports.

I am somewhat a geek. Not the pocket calculator/World of Warcraft/Know every single line of Star Trek geek. I'm one of the good geeks, the kind who do know perhaps too much about the inner workings of a computer but also do other things, like socialise.

In fact, a bit like Leonard from The Big Bang Theory...with a little bit of Sheldon and throw in some Raj-like awkwardness around women as well. (I realise for anyone who has not watched this series I am talking absolute twaddle now)

Great chocolate, good tea... From an Englishman that is high praise

Went in on the off chance and ended up a serendipitous decision. The food was excellent, and only the fact I was in polite company stopped me from licking the plate.
