As a girl on this site, one tends to get a lot of traffic (this has little to do with my wit, charm and looks and more to do with my gender; I get this) but what I am interested in is what makes some people stop & message and others run off into the night (we've all thought this, don't pretend you haven't)..
Of all those who message me, I probably reply to um, like, 3%.. and that's not because I am a grumpy sausage pants, but because we have Nothing Whatsoever In Common.
Or they've just said 'hi' and expected me to wet my knickers (oh dear lord).
Or they've exceeded my exclamation mark threshold.
So, my thoughts are that there must be others out there who I would love to converse with late into the night via a steaming hot laptop of discourse, repartee and Spaced quotes.
So, my simple request to you all is this: if you are about to pass me by, please send me a message just giving 3 words as to why, whatever the reason.
Be nice but I *am* interested.. so, y'know... Not my type, too many wigs, not tall enough, too many words, prefer her brother... don't worry, I won't start stalking you. I am just interested.
Ooh, I may even publish the findings. Y'know, like a proper survey..
I have spent years being told I am 'feisty'. I hate this word, everyone knows I hate this word. However, I have just looked the word up and synonyms include spirited, energetic and aggressive. Oh hell, maybe I am feisty. Although could we change the word aggressive to assertive please? So much more socially acceptable.
As with any woman, nay human, I am a mass of fabulous contradictions and confusion. I possess an ability to move from quiet, spiritual contemplation to dancing like bambi on acid in the time it takes for someone to shout "hey are they playing 'walking on sunshine' by katrina & the waves?".
I no longer listen to or watch the news. It's all just bad, sad, evil, negative and glorified for the sake of Daily Mail readers who want to hate and be angry. I feel happier for it but it does mean I am rubbish at pub trivia or topical conversation.
I am okay with this.
