  Sometimes he actually sounds like a spoof but no, he really is that left-wing and shouty and gorgeous xx

Like, *seriously*?

  There’s no denying the fact that I got out of bed on the wrong side today. I woke at 5.37am, dry-mouthed and exhausted, with the faint taste of last night’s elegantly flavoured £3.99 corner shop wine coating my teeth. I wrenched my sorry eyes round in their sockets, scowled the scowl of scowls at that hideous symbol of oppression my hairbrush, and drifted back into two hours of fitful sleep accompanied by a unicorn and my Geography teacher from Year Seven.

No, I didn’t feel that great to start with, dear reader. An acre of horse shit was weighing down on me from the word go. I clocked in at 30 stone, my skin was like a Braille edition of a William S. Burroughs novel, I still wasn’t a virgin again and the cancer that eluded every doctor’s examinations seemed to have spread at last to my brain.

It got worse as I began to make overtures towards the outside world. A glance through the window revealed an icy wonderland that would have looked spiffing on a nice postcard. Oof.

And then I checked out the news.





... Tell me I’ve paraphrased extravagantly and I shall tell you you’re a liar. I don’t know how much longer I can deal with all this.

  Dahlings, I'm back!!! I've got SO much to tell you all!!! Actually, no I haven't. It's SOOOPER dull here in this villa in Seville, and my husband isn't interested in me anymore since he got signed to Man City. Entertain me.

A survey

  What's the first thing that springs to mind when I say "Green Party member"? Do you have a fixed stereotype of what most of us are like, or not?

This just arrived in my inbox (!?)

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you, I came across your profile on netgoth.org.uk and thought you might be interested in a show I’m working on. I work for BBC Three on a series called Snog Marry Avoid?

BBC Three’s hugely popular Snog Marry Avoid? is returning for a third series. It’s a fun and quirky programme that involves both very ‘glamorous’ people and alternatively dressed people who have a “stand out from the crowd” look over a more natural look. A computer called P.O.D. (Personal Overhaul Device), who does not “compute” the changes they have made to their appearance, reveals to them what the public think of their image and gives them a makeunder rather than a makeover, giving them a more natural look. This is not necessarily to try and change someones style or image but to offer an alternative. I thought you might be interested in the alternative section of the show or might know of someone who may be interested in talking to us and showing their unique look off on the show?

Snog Marry Avoid? is the highest rated factual programme on BBC3 and has a real cult following. People who have appeared on the show have had interest from magazines and TV shows and clips from the show have had hundreds of thousands of hits on Youtube etc.

As I mentioned before, if this is something you’d be interested in or you know someone who might want to get involved I’d love to hear from you / them along with a couple of photo’s highlighting your look.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

  I just got back from the hustings, and can now confirm that I will be standing as a Green Party candidate for the (already Green) Ladywell ward in the next local elections. Hurrah!

  This morning I cycled from home to Waterloo (by which time it was 10 o'clock so I gave up and got on tube so I wouldn't be even more late!)... I left my house at 8.15, which should've given me plenty of time, but I got *SO* lost! I must say, however, that apart from the niggling concern that I might be late to work, it was great fun! It really cheered me up... Considering how suicidal I felt yesterday, that took some doing!

I never thought I'd enjoy exercise, but cycling really is wonderful. Even though everything hurts and I now feel as though I could eat a whole herd of wild horses. :p

Butch lesbians   
12:05pm 02/06/2009
  Hi all,

I am currently writing an article on butch lesbians, and I want to hear lesbian and bisexual women's opinions...

There's definitely been a move towards more feminine styles in the lesbian scene in recent years. Do you think butch is dying out? Why?

Are you butch yourself? If so, can you tell me a bit about the way your style and why you choose to adopt it? If you're not, what is your opinion of women who are butch?

Answers to charlotte@g3mag.co.uk, please - ideally by the end of the day!

Many thanks!
