7 things about me

Jane tags a prostitute. And The Prostitute tags me. It’s the oldest story in the ad world. So here goes the obligatory seven_fingered_handseven things about me:

1. Growing up, I have had many imaginary friends. None of them was god.

2. I dream of speaking at attending TED.

3. I don’t own or play any video games.

4. I found out essentially what works in advertising, also works in life – if you can’t be truthful then at least be entertaining.

5. I have less tolerance for people who cannot spell or write full sentences. That’s my thanks for the tag Shaun.

6. My weirdest habit – every time I buy a book, I write my name and date of purchase on the first page.

7. I fucking hate sushi.

He just calls it ‘The End.This Sidney Award winning piece is by far the best explanation I have read about the Wall Street disaster.
