OK, let’s get down to business…
I must’ve read every book about going to the moon there is
Yep – if there’s one thing I’m fascinated by, it’s the Race for Space. From Sputnik, through the first Mercury Seven Astronauts, to the moon landings, I just can’t get enough of it. Every now and then, I’ll even check out the live Youtube feed from the Space Station, or some historical footage or other, or even just this gif of Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov doing the first spacewalk:
Alexei Leonov’s book is here if you’re interested.
According to Spotify, I have the worst taste in music in human history
No good can come of these recommendations. Pfffffff….
I ran the London Marathon once, and I’ll never run any marathon ever again
Oh man, I was so sore after it. Did it in 4 hours 5 mins, and the nicest thing I can remember about it is being too tired to even cry after I finished. For these reasons, I’ve avoided the End of the World Running Club and What I Talk About When I Talk About Running (so far).
I’ve a strange fascination with baseball books and baseball movies
Can’t explain this one- must be up there with the space stuff for me. I’ve only ever seen one baseball game (Yankees v Orioles in case you’re interested), but I’ve read tonnes of books on it. Favourite one so far is Can’t Anyone Here Play this Game? by Jimmy Breslin:
I was 28 before I tried hot chocolate
I tend not to try any new foods if I can help it, but everyone was egging me on to try hot chocolate.And you know what? I was right. Hot chocolate is one of the most pointless drinks I can think of – It’s not chocolate, it’s not water, but the worst parts of both.
Still can’t understand what the fuss is about.
I’ve never been defeated in any hot dog eating challenge
Not once. If I head to any restaurant, and there’s a hot dog eating challenge on the menu, I will smash it into my face quicker than you can say “No mustard, please” (if you have mustard on your hot dog, then I will always judge you harshly).
I’m possibly the worlds worst, yet most enthusiastic, golfer
Yep. Love the game, but can’t play it for toffee. As a heads up, you’ll probably see some golf books being put up on here in the run up to the Masters in April:
