I've just found David Ford's blog.
OMG the man is a fucking GENIUS! Ok, so clearly I already knew this but... OMG! It's beyond brilliantThe Unauthoraised Biography of David Ford - the Early Years
Everyone should read that entry. Even if you have no idea who the hell David Ford is (...which admittedly, most of you do, because I have a tendancy to tell everyone I ever meet to listen to him because he is made of pure win), it's just hilarious.At school I was an appalling student. By the age of 14 I was able to read at the level of a spaniel. Diagnosed with crippling word-blindness, number- blindness, colour-blindness, it was a damn miracle I could see anything at all. The other kids soon caught on to my conditions and would often throw bicycle tyres at me. The resemblance to both the letter O and the number zero meant I would have no chance of seeing it coming.

I WANTS ME A DAVID! God, I can't wait for Milk & Cookies
