Community Spotlight - Curmudgeon

[ Edited ]

Happy Friday everyone!

 

It's time for the first Community Spotlight of the year, and today we'll be learning more about ... Drum

 

Curmudgeon bulb

 

Since he joined the forum last November, he has become a regular contributor around here. He answered a few of our questions to help you guys get to know him better but you can ask him some more in the below if you're curious about anything wink

 

What’s your name and where are you from?

Leigh from Leeds, but I now live in The Midlands

 

Why did you join the O2 forum initially?

To find out about the network, it’s strengths, weaknesses & info on the Moto G5 I bought on a Black Friday deal

 

What do you like best about the Community?

@Glory1 because they too are a Good Wife / Good Fight fan!

 

Apple, Android or Windows?

Apple for phone, Android for tv shows (Metal Mickey anyone?) and Windows for a 90s gaming pc.. (Red Alert & Carmageddon) 

 

Favourite movie and/or TV Show?

Movies - Mary Poppins / The Sound of Music / Victor/Victoria 

TV - Wentworth Prison / Prisoner Cell Block H / The Good Fight 

 

Do you have any pets?

I’d love a pet, but with the amount of time I spend out of the house it would be unfair to leave him/her alone.

 

What is your favourite word?

GRIM

 

What is your zombie apocalypse plan?

Trip you up and leave you!  

 

What is your perfect pizza like?

Pepperoni, Chorizo and extra cheese please! 

 

Future developments in mobile tech you’re looking forward to?

I’m not looking forward to anything really. I just sit here amazed at the things people invent, but then find myself wondering why such simple ideas weren’t thought up &/or implemented sooner!

 

What do you like to do in your spare time, besides hanging out around here?

After getting rid of my car 11 years ago I began walking everywhere, but with dodgy feet I turned to biking instead.

 

I bought a hybrid for £65 from a friend. Covering 8000 miles in my first year meant I needed to save for a Road Bike, which I did. Up until last year I was accident free(near enough) but after 3 consecutive months of offs & a stay in hospital, I swapped it for an ex hire mountain bike. It took me a few months to outgrow that and now I’m currently waiting for my Cube Acid 2018 to be invisi-framed & built ready for my 1st reliability trial in June & a few off road races over the summer!

 

My other passion.. music.. it’s on 24/7. Madonna, Muse, Bette Midler, ELO, Fleetwood Mac, Steps, The 80s & 90s ..but none of that stuff the kids of today call music.. ugh .. 

 

Awesome stuff, thanks again @Curmudgeon for your answers!

 

Feel free to say hi or ask any follow-up questions in the comments, and have a lovely weekend everyone slight smile

Hi @Anonymous Great spotlight and welcome.

Sorry I don't like the Good Wife /Good Fight but I will forgive you.wink

A couple of questions from me

1) Favourite bands/ music genres?

2) Where did your username come from? (I'm sure you aren't a 'bad tempered surly person')

Edited to say...forget question 1...I see you have listed them. I also love Muse and think ELO are brilliant. The most underrated band of the 70's. Superb musicians ...

1. I think my fave eras of music are the 80s and 90s. I listen to almost everything (except country)
2. I am old, I do stink & I am miserable! (Apparently)

Additional question from me:

Re: Member Spotlight - Curmudgeon

A pet.. I’d love to live surrounded by Meerkats.. they are the cutest things I’ve ever seen!

But realistically.. I’d get a Jird! They are inquisitive things but very hard to catch if they get loose! (They can jump)

As for a name.. I think I’d choose Jackson!

Hi @Anonymous ... good spotlight ... great to get to know you better ... Fantastic

You say invisi-framed referring to your next bike ... what does that word mean?

What are your favourite colours?

What kind of books do you like to read?

What would be the preferred livery of your dream bike

I too like ELO, powerful melodic musical noise music
