Posts are a bit thin on the ground here at the moment, mainly because the pesky day job keeps dragging me across the country for one reason or another. Tsk.
Still, those nice bloggers at The Sci-Fi Catholic tagged me for this, so I figured that since it saves me actually thinking too much I'd take a stab. So here are 8 (count 'em) random facts about moi:
1. My fourth car was a Mini. Yeah, my first one was too, but that sounded a bit predictable and not at all random. My second and third cars (and fifth and sixth) were Minis too.
2. I don't currently own a Mini though. Technically Yoda belongs to Mrs UKSteve.
3. I've gone off the idea of progress. It's over-rated.
4. I have an annoying tendency to quote The Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy whenever the opportunity arises. Also Red Dwarf and The Italian Job if they are more suitable.
5. I have read His Dark Materials. Yes, the whole trilogy.
6. And if I go to hell, it probably won't be for that.
7. One of my first published writings was a witty little thing called '101 Things to do with a Kettle'. The sequel, '101 Things to do with a ZX81', was far better in my opinion, but due to the more limited target audience I have yet to make a fortune from it. I made a couple of half-hearted attempts to put it online, but never quite found the right format.
8. I don't think this blog has eight regular readers, especially not eight that haven't already been tagged by DGD and his blogging pets.
So, if you happen to be passing through and haven't done the 8 Random Facts meme yet, consider yourself tagged.
Actually, that was quite fun.
