    Just one of those "get to know you" sort of threads, but done in the way the poster reveals something "out of the ordinary" about themselves. I best start ...

    If I had been born a girl (*checks* "Yep definitely not!"), my parents would have called me Victoria (then again my other two bros faced the same dilemma lol as well). I wasn't, so I am called Tim. However, during my A'levels, I met one of my best friends (amazingly, I am still in touch with her after all these years) - her name is Victoria / Vicky and she shares the same birthday as me, same year - 20 November 1973! Cool or what? Glad she got the name and not me :p

    Ok, second freebie in for good luck ...
    I was born 2lbs and 10oz (Mum just said it may be 8oz). If you saw me now you wouldn't believe it lol! Hey! What can a man do, I love all types of food, sometimes in excess of what is good for ya :p Not that I am a Jabba tho ;)

    I once delivered two big peavey amps to Brian May.
    I even got to speak to him and watch him play guitar for a few minutes.

    Nice one :cool: :D

    Did you know ...

    Honestly put my hand in the air and say this truthfully, but I am sure I have seen a ghost. When I was a kid I shared my room with my younger bro, the upstairs attic wasn't used though I was going to move into it sometime soon. My old bedroom was at the bottom of the stairs up to the attic and the top of those stairs had rooms on either side. I saw a black shape move across from the box cupboard to the bedroom/lounge area. I nearly (nearly as in didn't :p ) pooped my pants. Nearly changed my mind on moving upstairs, then I decided if a ghost was going to get me so be it.

    Did you know...

    That I only have half a nose. Not literally, but my right nostril doesn't do anything; I can't smell through it, breathe through it, nothing. I keep it purely for ornamental purposes :p

    Maybe. I've never checked it out. I only realised that it was just me who had one nostril a few years ago. I thought everyone was like me.

    Did you know...

    In 2001, I befriended an extremely wealthy couple who owned a $6million house on the shores of Lake Washington. Before taking a trip onto the lake using their private jet skiis, I was treated to a luxury powerboat tour (in their own luxury powerboat) of the Lakes 'points of interest'. Most notably, this 'tour' included seeing Bill Gates' mega-mansion from lakeside. This is the only way to see his house, as the majority of the immediate area surrounding Lake Washington is private estate and gated neighbourhood. He has a miniature salmon fishery in his back garden.

    I used to be a member of Mensa, but I stopped paying the subscription fee after I realised how lame is was. :p. The magazine was all I got out of it, and it sucked.

    My favourite sweets are Aniseed Imperials. Full of Imperial goodness, they are. :D

    I have very little sense of smell, due to nose problems as a child.

    The same or just similar? I've had just the one nostril all my life as far as I'm aware.
