5 things about me that you didn't know, and now probably wish you hadn't bothered to find out!
Well, it seems that I've been blog-tagged by 3 people: Dave Warlick, Sharon Peters and Paul Harrington. Very flattering, of course, so thanks, guys. In case you don't know the rules, here they are:
1. You have to say 5 things about yourself that may not be apparent from your blog.
2. You have to tag 5 other people.
I used to have long hair. Here's a picture of me from 1972.
My hair hadn't grown to its full length at that time -- it ended up about 2 inches above my waist. It seemed to attract girls, who used to come up and ask me how I got rid of my split ends. I didn't even know what a split end was. If I didn't feel like going out, I'd say "Sorry, but I'm washing my hair."
|Yeah, like too cool, man
I love writing. I first started trying to write a book when I was 8, but I didn't know enough to get very far. I was first published in a school magazine, and then I had my own column (The Terry Freedman View) in my university's newspaper. Around 1991 I joined the UK's Society of Authors. I still like to write about non-educational stuff, when I can find the time, mainly in my My Writes blog.
I got involved in amateur dramatics in my late 20s/early 30s. For a variety of reasons I adopted the stage name, Rick Bentley. Here's a picture of Rick Bentley making his debut as a murderer in a play called Double Edge, which was directed by Terry Freedman.

After I moved on from treading the boards, as we in show biz refer to acting, I joined a blues band as a singer and harmonica player. Although somewhat influenced by the Blues Brothers, I did develop my own style and became known, for a while, as Terry "Mojo" Freedman.

On the subject of music, I love jazz best of all -- all kinds of jazz, from the type where the players seem to adopt the attitude that "any note will do" to the more rhythmic strains of jazz funk. favourite jazz artiste: Herbie Mann.
And now, I tag:
