Tagged!

I've been "tagged" by Nursedude in some kind of bizarre blog-led game of tag. Not sure if it's really my cup of tea but, in the spirit of not wanting to be the party-pooper, here's how it works...

The rules are:

  • The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.

  • Each player answers the questions about themselves.

  • At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
So, here goes...

What I was doing 10 years ago:

In March 1998 I'd handed in my notice as an in-house lawyer for a TV distribution company and was about to embark on a non-legal career in the world of new media. Ironically, 10 years later I'm back trying to resurrect my legal career. Although married, there were no kids on the scene back then so life was...how can I put this...quieter. It was also over four years since I'd last played rugby and there was no prospect of me playing again. Ahem.

Five things on my To Do List today:

Finish answering these questions;
Work on my business plan;
Call the 2nd XV captain about getting a run out before the end of the season;
Drag myself along to the gym;
Spend some time with the kids who are off school on their Easter holidays.

Snacks I enjoy:

Olives;
Cashew nuts;
Pistachios;
Pretty much anything savoury.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Faint.
Double check that there hadn't been an error on my bank statement.
Retire.

Three of my bad habits:

Nose picking (a private obsession);
Drinking too much - I no longer get bladdered in the same way that I did in my twenties but have fallen into the routine of a quiet couple of drinks each night to wind down - must kick the habit;
Prevarication - never do today what you can put off until tomorrow, or preferably next week!

Five places I have lived:

Durham;
Peterborugh;
Cambidge;
London;
Now settled in awfully nice home counties Hertfordshire.

Five jobs I've had:

Company Director;
New media commercial monkey;
In-house legal monkey;
Solicitor;
Various summer jobs while a student, including packing toys in a toy factory.

Current position:

Sitting down.

Five people I want to know more about (in other words the five people who I'll be bothering later today...!):

David the Rugby Referee;
Matt the Aussie;
Ferdy the Kiwi;
Rory the Jock;
Wendy the Scrum Half.

Hi Flanker, thanks for being a sport. When my friend Michelle Tagged me, I really was not sure if some of my rugby-mad friends on the Blogosphere would be receptive to this type of thing. It's actually really interesting finding out more about my blog-writing mates.
