more serious than 'eek' could ever be

true or false? (part 1)

Published on June 3, 2010

So I’ve been online for a while now in various places, but how much do you, the reader actually know about me? How many of the statements below are true? (or, indeed; false?)

1. I am left-handed
2. I had a racing pigeon at home when I was younger
3. I have driven a Ferrari 360
4. I chipped my tooth in a swimming pool aged 16 and it still isn’t fixed
5. I went drinking with a band in Las Vegas after a gig they performed
6. I have a pierced nipple
7. I have performed in a production at the Bristol Hippodrome
8. I started training as an architect, but never quite made the cut
9. I’ve had two of my exes run away to sea
10. I was a VIP guest on Robot Wars

Ok folks, answers in the comments and I will reveal all in the near future.

(And people visiting this from facebook – the comments form won’t bite, it only asks for your email address to discourage spammers and goes nowhere else. Go on, you know you want to…)

Filed under: confessions, eep!, lists, me


  1. Emma says:

    1. True. 2. Surely not. 3. Undoubtably. 4. Yup and easily done. I cracked mine on a boy called Kevin. 5. Probably, lots of musos in Vegas. 6. No you don’t. 7. Yes and I bet it was a Gang Show. 8. True which is why I reckon you’re also a south paw. 9. Not unless you have a thing for Navy girls. 10. I would be surprised if you hadn’t seen Robot Wars as a VIP frankly.

    I actually hope I don’t get too many of these right in case I look like a stalker type but on the off chance I have aced it; do I get a prize?…..

  2. Hannah says:

    I think they might all be true. The ones I am unsure about (i.e. they might be false) are 2, 3, 5 and 10. 2 seems odd – and odd you’d never mentioned it – but not unfeasible. 3 seems likely, I don’t remember you ever mentioning it but it’s cars so I may’ve stopped listening. 5 could go either way and 10, again, seems likely as you’re a massive geek. So, I will throw caution to the wind and say they are all true!

  3. Omar says:

    1. True fact
    2.I want to say no, so I’ll say yes.
    3. Must of done.
    4. True fact
    5. Hmmm, surely you would have mentioned it… I say this is a LIE
    6. No way
    7. Yes. (For the reason Emma stated.)
    8. Yes
    10. Truth!

  4. Rachel says:

    Um well, I am pretty sure that 1, 4, 6, and 8 are true.
    I am going to say that 9 is false. The others are a bit more difficult as I think they are all possibly ture, but are they there just to trick us..
    Stab in the dark at 2 = False (it was probably some other stray animal)
    3, could be True – can you take me next time!
    5, I think might be true. I am going to say false for 7 as I not sure if you were ever in a Gang Show and 10 – well lets go false as well. Probably all wrong but hey, answering questions beats working for a living…

  5. The only ones I’m not sure about are numbers 2 and 10 – the rest are true, right?? Or true-ish. Although I’m *willing* numbers 2 and 10 to be true.

    (Also, Omar – “must HAVE” – jeez…)

  6. Lady Frampton says:

    1. True
    2. False
    3. False
    4. True
    5. True ‘coz you iz rock an roll innit
    6. True!
    7. I’m stuggling with this one – if you were in gay show, it’s true, but I really don’t think you ever have been…..mmmm..I’m going with false
    8. False-a-tron
    9. False, definitely one, but i don’t think it’s 2
    10. Please let this be true

  7. Fascinating stuff. Would love to comment but haven’t got a clue.

    Did the band ask you to join? Isn’t that the usual method for recruiting new members or were you too busy at the Bristol Hippodrome?

    While 4 probably tells you all you need to know about the state of the NHS.

    Are 6 and 9 related? or even 10 and 9 for that matter.

  8. Lizz says:

    I think that number 2 is false although I would so love it to be true, and number 10, I do remember you going to robot wars but can’t remember if you were a VIP but I think I’ll go with it being true as for the rest I say true.

  9. AndyC says:

    Having never met you I’m guessing they are all true except for the idiotic and frankly perverted notion of being left handed.

  10. Ange says:

    Never met you so I’m gonna guess! Btw will you tell us the answers??….
    1) true
    2) never!
    3) probably true, for about 100m…
    4) so true i can see it photos on Flickr! ;)
    5) false – you wish
    6) false – you don’t look the type?
    7) true!
    8) true, i soooo wanted to be an architect, still do :(
    9) false – who would run away from you?!!…
    10) true – how could you think that one up?

    So am i right?! I might steal this idea for my blog

  11. Corin says:

    Nice idea dude.
    I’m pretty certain that they’re all true, but have slight doubts about 2 and 7…

    1. I agree with Andy C (erm… the Andy C?)
    2. not sure about this one, but it’s not beyond the realms of possibility.
    3. I was there to bear witness.
    4. I did mine too (on a bunkbed) and now have a cap.
    5. Richard Cheese.
    6. Yep – seen it.
    7. I reckon that this may have something to do with the Ventures.
    8. Where we became great mates and our shared love for music may have affected our studies.
    9. may have something to do with studying in Portsmouth (a port) and living in Bristol (old port).
    10. I have a vague memory of you mentioning this.

    Big respect for this openness.
