So, now I've taken the plunge and started I really ought to add a proper post. But where to start? What to write about? How about the blog title? Why did I choose it? Couple of reasons really. Firstly, it's a quote from one of my favourite films, and secondly I used to think it summed me up. Now I'm not so sure. Can anyone truly have nothing to lose?
Anyway, as this is my first proper entry then I'm going to say a bit about myself. Self-indulgent perhaps but I feel the need to set the scene a little. I'll try and make it the last such posting, honest.
My name is Roman and I was born in 1973. I have a beautiful and lovely wife, Clare, two step-children, Rebecca and James, and three older siblings: Adam, Barbara and Edward. I currently reside in Nottingham in the UK, where I work for Virgin Media, helping our sales force to sell new products and offers. Tis a good job at a great place to work.
I have quite a few interests and they'll probably be forming the backbone of future posts on here. But for now here's a boring old list of them. I love sport. Dad and I didn't have a huge amount in common, but the passion for sport definitely came from him! It's limited mostly to watching rather than participating now unfortunately.
Music is up there too, though I'm very fussy in what I listen to, and find most current chart music awful. I really enjoy eating and drinking out and have been fortunate enough to visit some amazing restaurants. More of that in future posts methinks. I enjoy TV and films - though again not without fussiness - and like travelling, but hate flying, which is a bit restrictive...
Finally, I am fascinated by shiny gadgets and technology, and have become somewhat addicted to this social media lark. Which I guess is part of the reason I've started this blog. Also, just as another place where I can spew forth the myriad thoughts and musings that pop into my head from time to time.
Anyway, this will do for now. Will have a ponder over the weekend about what to write next. And I promise it won't be about me so much. Promise.
