I see my esteemed colleague Rory has ‘Tagged’ me and I’m compelled to give you an insight into my mind.  Its a scary place so you’ve been warned….

What was I doing 10 yrs ago?

Was at Uni and was making an effort to eat all the packets of Rib ‘n’ Saucy Nic Naks that I could lay my grubby little hands on…happy days!  I wasn’t in a rock band.

Five things on my To Do list today:

  • To not kill myself when climbing tonight
  • Start packing  – I’m moving house at the end of the week
  • Dig out the rugby ball – touch rugby training starts this week!
  • Have a fight with my IT department and get them to do what I have been asking for for the last 6 months.
  • To not  annoy the living crap into Mrs Al – a near impossibility.

Snacks I enjoy:

Food!  Like Rory I’m a fan of the Croq Monsieur but an honourable mention must go to Rib ‘n’ Saucy Nic Naks and the bacon roll (although their is a battle in the Al house over whether red or brown sauce is best!).  Also a lot to be said for Pink Lady apples…tasty!

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

  • As Rory mentioned I always said that I would sponsor the Scotland rugby team and get my picture on the jersey!  Since Rory is kindly doing this for me, with his billions, I thought I’d repay the favour.  So I’ll sponsor the England team and get Rory’s picture put on their jersey….he’ll like that!
  • Make sure my family were all sorted for life
  • Take Mrs Al to Paris (again!) and let her run wild in the Prada and Dior shops!  I’d get plenty of kudos and she could never again moan when I put rugby on the telly…ever!
  • Probably put money into my favourite football team (Aberdeen)
  • Pay to have Austin Healey fight an angry gorilla and for David ‘the Gob’ Campese to have his fat, Aussie mouth sewn shut!

Three of my bad habits:

  • Getting wound up at rugby internationals and being very loud
  • Getting very drunk the night before rugby internationals and then going AWOL in a foreign country
  • Drinking Lager Tops – its a girls drink

Five places I have lived:

  • Foyers (a wee village on Loch Ness)
  • Inverness
  • Dundee
  • Inverness (again)
  • Edinburgh

Five jobs I have had:

  • Helper monkey at the Co-op
  • Helper monkey (senior) at Tesco’s
  • Photocopier extraordinaire
  • Community project judge, jury and executioner
  • NHS desk jockey

Current position

Part time rugby blogger, part time NHS grunt, part time sports enthusiast, full time pain in the backside.

Bloggers I want to know more about?

All you lovely people!  In the words of Delia “Where are ya?…Lets be havin’ ya!”

Over and out.
