I've been tagged

I have been sort of tagged by Phil over at Spinopsys, which apparently means I am obliged to tell the public five things about myself that may be hitherto unknown.

So here it goes...

1) I obsess over subcultures, ratbags, rebels, fringe dwellers and outsiders. Art imitating life or life imitating art I don’t know.

2) I am the world’s biggest sell-out. For example: I am possibly the world’s only socialist corporate tax consultant. Oh well, as someone wise once said ‘Truth is son it’s a buyers market, they can afford to pick and chose’.

3) I bought my first bike when I was 22. I always loved bike racing, but couldn’t afford one up until that point. I basically started out riding to university because I couldn’t afford a car- then caught the cycling bug big time. My first bike was totalled when I got t-boned by a car on 11 September 2004... spooky.

4) Like Ted Baillieu I used to play Rugby Union. I played a handful of games for the Victorian Colts side before stopping to concentrate on University. My playing weight was 115kgs (I’m currently 85kgs and going down on the bike!)

5) This year I want to ride a Victorian team qualifying time for the kilo (1:07:00), ride in Belgium in June-July, and race the Melbourne-Warnambool in October. I also want to try and help organise a Melbourne-Castlemaine Spring classic race in September. We’ll have to see how it all goes- don’t be surprised if I fail miserably on all fronts!

Thanks for playing Timboy. Great stuff.

"I am the world’s biggest sell-out".

Sell out away, consistency is thre hobgoblin of little minds.....ya gotta live in the system we've got baby, might as well profit.

Plus it pays the racing bills right?

Racing bills are paid + there is money in the pot for other plots and schemes.

I use that as the most obvious example of me being a sellout- but there is a long list of others examples that I won't go into here :D
