Say what! Tagged you say! Oh Dear!

Eoin Purcell

Seems all the rage this Tagging
I’ll do it this once for Annette who tagged me. The toughest part is tagging 8 people. If it annoys you just ignore it!

8 Random facts about me:

1) As a child one of my favourite things to read was the Tree of Knowledge Encyclopedia Series which I read from A-Z

2) I love my tea strong and milky

3) My first car was a 94 Opel Corsa called Alfred the Great. What a spiffy car he was.

4) Ties and cufflinks are a minor weakness of mine

5) When I read Terry Pratchett I laugh out loud (so much so I am afraid to read him when people are around).

6) My Grandfather (Padraig Puirseil) wrote the book The Quiet Man, not THE THE QUITE MAN, but The Quiet Man (longer story worth telling over tea).

7) My Second car is Alfred II and is a wonderful 96 Golf mkii.

8) I am completely addicted to books.

The rules….
-Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
-People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
-At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

And now I tag:

Bloglily and why not.

Links of Interest (At Least to Me) ALWAYS ON

Eoin Purcell

I love Google Reader

I know I have been quiet the last few weeks but I have made one huge change and I love it. I have shifted all my blog reading to Google Reader.

It is actually the business and enables me to do something I have longed to do for some time. The real hint for this though i have to admit came from Robert Scoble who writes the phenomenally successful blog Scobleizer.

I now have a links blog.

You can access it here

I will still be highlighting some features that just are too good to leave in the side column but I love this feature and really want it to work out well. The selection will be much more diverse than the focussed Links of Interest (At Least to Me) posts so do check it out.

I have a post in the works on the Coming Digital Tsunami. More soon!

Wondering at my poor poker play.
