The paranoid fellow next door was shouting his mouth off the other evening, going "THAT’S HER FIRE ALARM!". In fact, the beeping noise he’d heard was five texts arriving in the inbox of my mobile, which I’d just switched on. Loony.
I am a stand-up comedian and writer who has had hemiplegia, a rare-ish form of cerebral palsy which affects one side of the body (in my case the right) since birth. I also have curvature of the spine. I speak German, Spanish and Italian just about fluently, French badly, and am currently learning Portuguese. I have been a vegetarian for many years.
