8 Random Facts About Me

I just knew that when Dan Taylor got tagged it was bound to come and get me too. And i’ve never even met him. Well, thanks to James i’ve got to do the following:

1: Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2: People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
3: At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4: Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Okay, here goes.

1. I’ve presented over a thousand hours on kids radio station, Fun Radio. Indeed, you can still catch me on the weekends, if you’re unlucky.

2. I was crowned Bournemouth’s young headline writer of the year sometime in the early 90s. I had to come up with a headline for a story about a Farmer called Bill who had started an Ostrich farm that has become quite successful. What was my headline? Bill’s Becoming Ost-Rich. Did you see what I did there?

3. I think I got my first proper job in radio because someone needed a new housemate.

4. A family friend’s young daughter used to call me mushroom because she couldn’t say Matthew (my at-home name).

5. I used to be a (part-time) reality TV pundit and had RI:SE interview me live from my house (with a sat truck in the car-park).

6. I’m a big believer in “what goes around comes around”, which means I try to be nice (but mainly for selfish reasons)

7. In the few days before Christmas I work in my Mum’s shop taking money and wrapping people’s presents.

8. I subscribe to 215 blogs and merely pass their ideas off as my own.

Now I get to tag other people who have to do the same thing. I choose:
David Madelin off of the BBC
Helen off of Ox Fm
Jo Step-henson off of staying at home ‘writing’
Ian Stokes off of making Leanne’s dinner
Leanne Stokes off of being a scientist
Paul Earwaker off of being in the Congo
Paul Smith off of writing cheeky things in The Guardian
Nicky Tate off of being my newest work colleague.
