7 Things About Me

  1. My looks. When I was born the midwife held me up the ankles and the doctor smacked my mother
  2. I was raised in a small town in Scotland called Airdrie whose only claim to fame is that a ‘town worthy’ moved furniture with an ‘unfeasibly large’ wheelbarrow
  3. I was once mistaken for Dennis Waterman and asked for his autograph (Refer to point 1)
  4. I know more about the human condition that Freud and Jung put together – all through working in an ice cream van in Glasgow (all human and, not-so-human, life is there)
  5. I speak Glaswegian, Klingon, Xhovain and Gibberish (Tich Tor Ang Tesmur – Vulcan, just to show off)
  6. My historical hero is Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a brilliant engineer (Google his name and be amazed)
  7. I’m going to live to be 120 or die trying
