Probably on the toilet

Today I heard about the best Facebook hack ever: my friend’s housemates took her phone while she was out, and instead of doing the typical ‘im gay lol’ status, they friend requested over 70 people named Jerome and so she keeps finding random Jeromes in her newsfeed and I am so happy

Anonymous asked: "It's your anonymous TripAdvisor correspondent again. This may be at issue with what TripAdvisor are referring to as hearsay: Rather than accept that literary, humorous and very disappointed hotel guests think alike, they may believe that you've nicked someone else's comment. It's the one linking the 2006-era phone book in the room with its last cleaning date. A review dated 17.3.14 ("Overpriced and Filthy") mentions the same thing. Lose that rapier thrust, and your review still cuts deep."

Euuuuuuurgh, really? Damn it to heck, that was a good line. Thank you! I shall remove that, and see if it’s accepted (it’s been rejected twice now!)

As Clod gazed into the empty atoms of the thin mid-morning air, he contemplated all the things that had taken him to this point; all the fish he’d never eaten and perhaps never would, all the little jingly balls he’d been top tired to chase and now lay lonely behind the sofa in the living room. Clod had never been a morning person.

I did the interview I fucking did it

I made sure to discuss the differences between romantic / aesthetic / sexual attraction, the existence of sex positive and sex repulsed asexuals, the attitude towards asexuality by much of society and the fact that not all asexuals are celibate or dislike sex

Tomorrow I get the copy so I can see what they plan to write, and I’ll gently nudge them if they leave out any of these topics!

I now have a photoshoot on Thursday and I’m afraid

Also my cat just ran away from me

Regarding the asexuality interview

My plan is as follows:

  • find out more about the angle of the piece - I’ve researched the journalist and she is credible, with a track record of highlighting gender and sexuality issues in a sensitive way. The only issue is that the newspaper itself is a tabloid, which obviously don’t have the best record for empathy!
  • confirm I will get copy approval, and they’ll stick to the copy approval agreed upon
  • ask not to have my surname printed / use a different name (because last time I did an interview, I got 3456394872 media requests) even with the photograph that they want of me. I don’t mind my face being used, as long as I don’t get another 934875 Facebook messages asking for TV appearances again!


Does that sound OK to people?! What other precautions can I take? I am v happy to do a feature that I think would raise awareness and be sensitive, which is why I would insist upon copy and print approval, so if there’s anything else that my more media savvy friends know I can do that would ensure this, please let me knoooooow

Summary:

“You’re a single male in a pub whose friends are trying to find him a girl to shag, and you’re not happy about it. When looking for an escape route, you ignore the myriad of other singletons here and head straight for me, the undeniably gorgeous and evidently rich man at the bar. You also haven’t heard of Morgana le Fay. You, my friend, are by all means a raving homosexual.”

Or, how Merlin found the worst anti-wingman in the world, but did manage to avoid the woman with a beard.
