Damn, I’m Meme-ing again

Generally I don’t like these ‘meme’ things, but this one looked interesting so I thought I’d give it a go. [[via](http://www.drimple.net/?p=129)]

10 years ago: 1995 – started the year unemployed in edinburgh, not the most inspiring time of my life. had met the love of my life (my wife), got my first proper job, in the IT industry, which saved my soul. drank too much, smoked too much, ate too many pasties, put on too much weight…

5 years ago: 2000 – 1999 was much more significant as it was the year I got married. 2000 was just another year – I’m sure something exciting happened but I can’t seem to remember.

1 year ago: we started out new hobby, rock climbing in the january, and got our first outdoors experience in the august (birthday present, best ever). went to nepal on holiday, fab.

Today: get up, go to work, try to take photos in lunch-hour, work some more, go home, have tea – pretty much it. I might go to an art gallery at lunch-time.

Tomorrow: Same as today? More interesting is the weekend, when I might go to Durham to take lovely photographs, and maybe an art talk at the aforementioned gallery [[Vane](http://www.vane.org.uk)].

5 snacks I enjoy: carrot cake, caramel slice, anything with chocolate in * 3

5 Bands/Singers that I know most of the lyrics to their songs: Queen, Bon Jovi, one They Might Be Giants Song – that will have to do as I’m VERY crap at lyrics (as the wife, she does like laughing at me as I get it wrong).

5 locations I’d like to run away to: lake district, yosemite, australia, new zealand, the moon (when it has a dome!)

5 bad habits I have: bite nails, flickr surfing, ignoring my wife, forgetting stuff, interupting people

5 things I like doing: flickr surfing, reading books, walking in the hills, climbing, taking photos

5 things I would never wear: white socks with black trousers, sadals with any socks, not much else (I’m a sucker for a bet).

5 TV shows I like: Dead like me, Desperate House Wives, Will and Grace, Seinfield, 24

5 Movies I Like: Casablanca, Blade Runner, The Princess Bride, Hero, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

5 Famous People I’d Like to Meet: Einstein, [Henri Cartier-Bresson](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Cartier-Bresson), [Pierre de Fermat](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_de_Fermat), [Thomas Edison](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Alva_Edison) and [Ben Franklin](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_Franklin)

5 Biggest Joys at the Moment: 350D camera, this web site working, spending time with caroline, not having to do the great north run, being alive

5 favorite toys: 350d camera, this web site, flickr, ruby, climbing gear

5 people to tag: if you have a blog, consider yourself tagged.

  1. I think I might have to meme this, it’s a good intro-thingy for when you meet new people.

    LOVE your overhaul. It’s a terrific improvement. Did you port your blogroll, or do you have to re-instate it from scratch? WP is great. Congratulations. And Caroline on Flickr, too! Wow. :)

  2. I could have imported my blogroll (I use http://www.bloglines.com, which can export itself as an OPML file, which can then be imported into WP as an OPML file). But I chose not too (yet at least).

    I love the way the plugins are easy to install – I must have added five or six so far (including the comment subscription one, and related posts one).

  3. Can you please put anything like that on swingbridgetyne.net? I love the comments sub, but not sure what the others are still, just go ahead and bung ’em on. And do blog, dammit! :))
