Five things tagged

Oh no... Mauricio tagged me with the Five Things meme. Gack. Fine, here are five things you possibly don't know about me and probably never wanted to know either :)
  1. I was born in Finland. The reason I start with that is because a lot of people, especially Downunder and in Asia, can't work out where the name is from. So no, I'm not Dutch, German, South African, Scottish, Tamil, or Czech :).

  2. Food and languages wind my clock. In hindsight, I probably should've pursued a career in either of those fields instead ICT journalism.

  3. Because of all the good food I like to stuff myself with, I have to exercise... a lot. Biking (road and offroad) is the favourite activity, but I like weight-lifting too. Pain and suffering is good. There's magic in going uphill with legs and lungs on fire, reaching the top and then crashing while going downhill too fast. I try not to do that anymore as it takes such a long time to heal now.

  4. The first computer I liked was the Commodore Amiga 500, followed by the Amiga 2000.

  5. I love British comedy. The Comic Strip, Trigger-happy TV, Reeves and Mortimer, Allan Partridge, Harry Enfield et al...
