1: I love broad beans. I can eat some green things with no problems, just not leaves.
2: Last night I made my first-ever lasagne, including a bechamel sauce from scratch made with rice milk. The pasta sheets included spinach pasta, which appears to be fine for me to consume.
3: I don't have much hair. I discovered this thanks to a photo taken after last week's half marathon. I was wearing a stupid expression, but I'm not sure that really comes across. I'd post the picture, but then I'd have to
4: I have greying hair, getting greyer by the day. This is the coolest thing that has happened to my hair for a long time, and I'm loving it!
5: I'm off to Vegas in a couple of weeks for work. Gah and double gah. Possibly my least favourite place to run in the world; I'm looking forward to learning to drive so I can hire a car while I'm there next, and drive to the mountains to run there instead.
6: I accidentally caused a woman to fall right over yesterday. I threw a stick for SuperDog and her dog, on the lead after a long injury layoff, went for the stick too. She went down like a sack of spuds and ribbed me about it this morning, saying she could hardly move.
7: My lovely, talented wife has a job. I'll show you a picture of her, because she is simply gorgeous. She's here:
8: She also designs and makes one-off handbags and shoulder bags, as well as desiging and making wedding dresses and outfits. She's right clever, she is.
9: She also does all the DIY in the house. I am a DIY-retard.
10: At my heaviest, I weighed over 240lbs. It's probably the only time I have looked my weight.
11: Oh, go on then.
I'm currently around 210lbs.
12: I had terrible wind this morning.
13: I like Marmite on toast, but for some reason always like it more when someone else makes it.
14: My favourite superhero is Batman. That dude rocks.
15: I thought Frasier was going to be dreadful. How wrong was I?
16: I occasionally drop 'fisting' into polite conversation simply because it makes me laugh.
17: Not a fan of war.
18: Though I do like Bruce Springsteen.
19: I'm not very good at RFFs. But I will persist.
20: Before I got married, I had never lived with a girlfriend/wife. I'd never been with anyone I got on well enough with to want to spend that kind of time and space with them.
21: I really really like being married. Never thought I would write that sentence, though of course marriage is tough and has its ups and downs.
22: That bleedin' agent still hasn't read my book. Financial independence (after selling the movie rights) must wait.
23: I amazed my event co-organiser yesterday with the story about going to a tiny party in Detroit and seeing Eminem perform, and meeting Proof and Mekhi Phifer. I used it as an example of the kind of ridiculously cool things journalists get to do instead of having a real life. Now that I have experienced both sides of the coin, real life wins every time.
Enough of my burble. I think I'm supposed to be on deadline.
