it's really hard, I'm not that interesting but I'll give
it a go. Like most people I started life at an early age,
(what do you mean too corny?). Sigh, tough crowd. Right
start again, think of something funny, but original...funny
but original...funny but original...right if you used a
vacuum cleaner in Space...arrghhhh can't think of a funny
punch line to that!
I like a very wide variety of stuff from heavy rock to the
latest Kylie hit in the charts. In particular I like well
written lyrics that have a bit of feeling behind them. I
think music should draw you in and get an emotional response
from you, it should touch you. Have a listen to Gary Moore's
"Still got the Blues" and/or Chris de Burgh's

I'll watch things like Spaced, The Fast Show, Malcolm in

For a bit of escapism I'll nip through the StarGate, watch

I usually stick with Sci-Fi and some Fantasy.

although I'll give anything a go. Favourite retro games
are Super Tennis and Super Mario Kart on the Snes, Virtual
Tennis on the Dreamcast and any of the ISS games. Football
Manager is great but makes time disappear like it's going
out of fashion. Current favourite gaming machines are the
XBox 360 and Nintendo Wii.
I usually work in IT. Worked for a while at BT Internet.
BT Internet was a bit of an enigma. At times very fulfilling,
at others soul destroying but often very
I like watching Manchester United play football, although
I'm one of those fans who live far away from the ground
and have never been to a live match. I also like Stenhousemuir
mainly because I read a really nice article about them a
long time ago and they have a cool name, which means something
like Stone House Wall. I couldn't name a single player in
the team but I always keep an eye on their results and table
