The kindly Family Lore has tagged me with the latest blogger’s version of a chain letter, a meme tag. I vaguely recall seeing this one spreading amongst web designer blogs a couple of months ago and then it recently hit the law blogs like mutated bird flu.
I am to reveal five things that you didn’t know about me and then spread the infection onwards to another five bloggers.
No disrespect to Family Lore at all, who runs a fine blog, but in this regard Richard Dawkins has a lot to answer for. I say fie to crass evolutionary sociobiology, pish and tush to reductionalist naturalism. This meme may continue elsewhere, I refuse to be a vector.
My hero is Des Essientes, but I can’t afford the decadence.
In any case, the answer to what you probably didn’t know about me is ‘virtually everything’. But as a concession and keeping it legally related, I did once manage to wet myself while being cuddled by the Solicitor General (then Geoffrey Howe).
[edit 12/01/07. I cannot tell a lie. I didn’t dampen the Solicitor General. I did dampen a Solicitor General to be, by a year or two. But there had to be a legal link, sorry.]
