The Corner

The one and only.

Nerdiest of Them All?


Thinking back to my school days, I reckon I win this tawdry talent contest with some ease. Captain of the chess team, stamp collector (until surprisingly recently in fact), reader of Isaac Asimov, Pink Floyd fan and member of the Syd Barrett Appreciation Society. The clincher (in case anyone knows what this means): when it came to picking cricket teams I was always chosen to be the ’scorer’.

These days, of course, I’m cool, which is why I wear NRO logo clothing. (advertisement)
