FQ Topic: Olympic

FQ1: Which Olympic events are your most and least favorite?
Most: maybe gymnastics or diving
Least: boxing

FQ2: In what Olympic competition would you have the best shot at a gold medal?
No chance at all in anything.  The only sport I've ever played was hockey, but I was never very good at that.

FQ3: If you could add or invent a new Olympic sport, what would it be?
um. 

FQ PITCHMAN: Propose why your home town should host the next Olympic Games (your choice Summer or Winter).
My *home* town?  Sydney?  We did that in 2000 and Juan Antonio Samaranch declared it the best Olympics ever.
Canberra on the other hand.  Well we do have some national sport centres, but we're probably a bit too small to host an Olympics.

Didn't get to do this last Friday on account of being down at the coast

Friday, August 13th 2004...   (it was Friday the 13th last Friday too)

FQ Topic: Ego

FQ1: What is an activity that you can do better than anybody else you know?
Documentation

FQ2: What is a subject where you are smarter than anybody else you know?
hrmm don't know about that one.  In my last job I often found myself in a position where there were no other "experts" in my team so I was on my own trying to solve problems.  This job is quite a bit different because there's so many people in IT that there's almost always people around that know more than me, which is great because I'm pretty dumb.  But I suppose there's a few geeky, "kids" things, like Lego or Harry Potter that I probably know more about than any of my adult friends.

FQ3: What is a trait you possess that makes you superior to lesser humans?
Attention to detail, meticulousness, ok anal retentiveness.  Good for some things, like doco or paint-by-numbers, but is probably annoying to a lot of people (especially the ones that don't meet my high standards ;) )

FQ FICTION: Which of your many stellar accomplishments should be recorded in the history books? (Can't think of one? Make it up!).
Gosh.  Um.  Too hard...

FQ Topic: Childhood

FQ1: Where did you live out your childhood years?
Como, Sydney, Australia

FQ2: As a child, what was your favorite toy, book, television show, and cartoon character?
Toy?  As a little kid it was "Ducky" an elongated rubber duck thing.  In 1983 I made "Cutie" - essentially a pompom which I still have and travel the world with.

Favourite book?  I didn't read many books, I found reading long stories tedious.  I liked TinTin and Asterix comics.  Choose your own adventures.  Horse books.  
TV show?  I remember lots from my teenage years.  As a child?  Probably my earliest memory of a favourite tv show would be Whacky Races.  I was always Penelope.  We used to watch it with a kid from our school, Cosmos, before we went to school.
Cartoon character?  Dunno.  I liked Warner Brothers cartoons later on, and Inspector Gadget..

FQ3: Charm us with a favorite childhood memory...
Here's a whole blog of it...

FQ PHOTO-OP: Show us a photo of just how adorable you were as a child.
meh.  This was me on our front balcony.
