Welcome, , to my little place in h2g2

The Stout Scout smiley - stout

I was here five years. Now I'm not (hence the lack of posting on anything for several years). I was until the start of 2005 a Scout, but resigned due to other commitments meaning I spend much less time on h2g2.

I used to describe myself as the Stout Scout both because I was a touch portly, and in an obscure and almost meaningless reference to Lettuce, a minor character in the Reginald Perrin trilogy by David Nobbs.

almost a lettuce

I lost a bit of excess stoutness between June and October 2003, but regained it, and between June 2007 and February 2008 managed to lose it again - I followed the JUDDD diet, which I have extolled he virtues of to many people, as it is fairly easy to follow, being easy to understand and not requiring excessive willpower or special meals to use. On down days I ate a few smiley - tomatosmiley - tomatosmiley - tomato (in season, and then resorted to dry crackers). I can probably now wear waistcoats again that had been a bit too snug, though as a downside my jacket looks a bit loose. Think: Winnie the Pooh doing his stoutness exercises in front of his looking glass.

I have been told that I am a bit weird, but also a "top bloke".
If the person telling me this hadn't been so smiley - drunk I might be prouder of the compliment.

You can think of me (if you like) as male, possibly a bit of a smiley - geek. I also live in the middle of a sea (on an island).
