Twelve Things You Didn’t Know About Moi by Paul Willcocks

July 20, 2011

  1. I was eaten by the devil at the Royal Opera House in 1992.  But I got regurgitated.
  2. I am a fan of ‘Doctor Who’ and have been ever since I was four.
  3. I don’t drive.  I almost wrote ‘I can’t drive’ but I sure that can’t be true.
  4. I am afraid of spiders; of their agility, their many legs, their unpredictable speed… I admire them though.
  5. I love Japan and in particular the youth hostel in Hiroshima.
  6. I have a terrible weakness when it comes to Pringles.
  7. I am both extravert and introvert and can switch from one to the other like a roadrunner.
  8. Me in Zippo's 1993

    I am a fan of ‘The Apprentice’ and secretly want to be on it.

  9. I have written over a hundred songs.  Some are so close to the bone I just can’t play them anymore
  10. I have just completed my Grade 6 piano, 28 years after I took my Grade 5!
  11. When I was 27, I ran away to join the circus.  I left when I found myself banging stakes into an icy carpark inReading in the last weeks of November, just to put the tent up.
  12. My older brother saved me from drowning when I was 7.

    I was left wide-eyed at the variety of events in your life. Just want to say Well Done! to your brother (for saving your life when you were seven years old. Phew!)
