20 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me


Here is a list of 20 things of which some of you may know some of them but many of you won’t know the majority.

  • My favourite colour is green.
  • I weigh 170 pounds (15 pounds heavier than I did last year at this time – goodbye metabolism!).
  • I generally only watch television shows that are informative in nature.  My favourite channel is The Discovery Channel.
  • My favourite sport to play is golf.  I also play hockey.  I’m much better at golf than hockey.  My best game of golf was 73 (2 over par) at John Bloomberg in 2008.  Normally I shoot low to mid 80’s.
  • I’ve never been hunting (nor have I ever shot a gun).  And I have absolutely no desire to do so.
  • I have a Bachelor of Computer Science degree (with honours) from the University of Manitoba (1994).  I am PMP (Project Management Professional) certified (2009) and Prince2 certified (2010).
  • My favourite food is pasta (especially with white cream sauce).
  • My brother-in-law taught me how to play guitar.  I only know about 30 songs and only play rhythm.  I try not to sing when I play because I can never remember the words.
  • I used to read music as a child but not any more (although I’m learning again as my son is taking music).
  • I love to stay up at night and sleep in in the morning.  Sometimes I still stay up at night but I rarely get to sleep in anymore now that I have two kids – one that is ALWAYS up by 7:00am.
  • Two years ago I decided to stop driving downtown to work when my parkade was raising the rate from $100 per month to $140.  But, I also did it to be more environmentally friendly.
  • My favourite sport to watch is football, specifically the Canadian Football League (CFL).  My wife and I have season tickets to the Blue Bombers.  I don’t watch the NFL.
  • I was a goal tender in hockey from age 9 to 15.  When I started playing again at age 25 I played forward.  I don’t have a slap shot as I was never taught how to take one.
  • I like my steak medium rare.
  • My dad used to call me “Brinky” when I was growing up.  That’s likely why I call my son “Bunky” all the time.
  • My desk at work is always spotless, no papers on the desk and nothing out of place.  I can literally pack everything up on my desk in 30 seconds (if I had to).
  • I’ve never broken a bone in my body.  And I hope it stays that way!
  • I’m not supersticious.  I always walk under ladders.  I did it at least 10 times during the past week when I was painting my windows.
  • I drool (a lot) when I sleep.  Hardly a night goes by when I don’t have to flip the pillow.  (I can hear all the groans already.)
  • I work out 2 to 3 times per week in the morning before I go to work.  (Unless I’m injured – which has been happening more and more lately – or if I’m very tired.)
