Thanks to the Northerly latitude I live at I don’t have to get up before sunrise (which this morning was at 6:20am), that’s not to say I am not awake at that time. I can still wrap my head in a pillow while Baby G makes noises and pretend that at 6.30am I…

As way of a basic introduction let’s do some facts.
- I'm 33 years old
- 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)
