Give me a shout if you want to make a difference in developing countries.

I sail, I play Ultimate Frisbee and I hang out on /links most of the time. If you're coming to Edinburgh give me a call - I'm always up for a beer.

Heres a nice pic of me at the top of a mast.

I'm the one at the top.

I wish I had PS'd this
I was sailing down in Hamble last week and this van got stuck next to the Royal Southern Yacht Club. I couldnt believe my luck to be honest.

» Bizarre habits

I spent about 5 years not stabbing sausages while frying them
because I had a dream once that doing this causes cancer, and just never questioned it.

This went on until one day my flatmate was cooking sausages on a BBQ and as he went to stab them I panicked and shouted "NO DON'T"

He said "why"

I said "because it gives . . . " and at that moment I realised that I'd dreamt the original issue.

Its odd the things we'll do subconsciously.

» Stupid Dares

me and my brother
have a series of one pound bets going on.
at a family wedding a few weekends ago he bet me a pound for every jug (big table jugs) of water I could drink. seen as these were all just stacked up on the bar having just been filled and waiting to be delivered to the table, I walked up and downed one looking the barman in the eye. unfortunatly that was just too much water.

In the park for the photos I bet him a pound to eat a holly leaf whole, turned his teeth and mouth green for the photos.

on the way back to the venue he bet me to goto try and buy drugs off a parked ice cream man but really really subtly.
"have you got any ..........smarties?" etc with much raised eyebrows.
things get hazy after that....

» Have you ever been dumped in a spectacular way?

after drinking alot to get dutch courage (maybe a little too much) I squared up to my (soon to be ex) girlfriend and I opened my mouth to say.......
"I dont think we should see each other any more" but the words seemed to be coming out of her mouth not mine. I suddenly realised she had jsut dumped me...when I was going to dump her.. unfortunatelly I laughed very loud about this (darn dutch bravery) which seemingly was the wrong thing to do as she ran off crying.

» Stuff You've Overheard

Not an overhearing issue
a situation of someone over-seeing me?
I was walking along with my friend and for some reason I was giving him a estimate of how bit something was, but with the "I caught a fish - it was THIS BIG" hand action. a man leaned out of an approaching car and as he went past shouted "YOUR JOKING - IT CANT BE THAT BIG"
was the best bit of timed comedy ever from a chor.

» Accidental animal cruelty

Along with painting my dogs head blue
We invented a game where we put pegs on our dogs ears (retriever) and then made her move her head to one side, Que the pegs hitting her on the side of face making her flick her head back to that side to see what hit her. Que pegs from other side hitting her in the face also. repeat ad infinatum. It was only when she started going mental that we realised she probably wasnt enjoying this. whoops.
but shes cute though.
awww look at her
