Spinsterella gets slightly hot under the collar

Scroll down HERE to find a genuine photo of the legendary, no, mythical Bob Swipe.

Is it actually Bob? You never really know with the Swipester, do you?

And even if it is him, the photo’s about twenty years old. But still, look at that pale skin/dark hair/dark eyes combination. And the cheekbones. And the suggestion of veinage running down that slender neck....

I don’t know about you lot, but I certainly would.

*goes for a lie-down*


  • Well, it seems similar to the other rather out of date pic he posted on his blog.

    Are you starting to fall for his tender blandishments? I was feeling sympathetic and concerned about how you were coping under the obscenity laden onslaught but after this I shall cease to worry.

    And fuck my old bollocks, Spin - they're cunting well tender alright....

    (As I believe the vernacular has it,) mwah!!


    p.s. "I'm speechless......."

    It *really* is amazing what you can do with photoshop and a xerox of the insert of a Lou Reed LP, isn't it?

  • *Would* have.

  • Haethster's got the tense down pat, Spin.

    Console yourself - I'm a "fat munter" now - don't lose any sleep while you're lying down.....

    Gawd bless,

  • Def a lou reed pose. I'm not surprised he kept the photo. If i was a girl i would. Twenty years ago. But i'm not a girl and this is twenty years later... i still reckon the other pic i saw was the spitting image of haircut 100.

    btw - i'd be quite happy to leave creative stuff on the new page that you and Ro-Mo have sorted out - is it really up and running? Are lots of people going to embarrass themselves too? Because i dont want to be the only one.

  • *looks up 'blandishment'*

    Frankly GSE, I'm so desperate that I'll take any crumbs of compliments I can get.

    Billy, you're already young. Perhaps you could go to the British Museum and get some of those pics done that'll show what you'll look like when you're, say, thirty-eight?

    Whales, it's nowt to do with me, but I'm sure Bob and RoMo will be delighted to have your reative scribblings.

  • OK, well just make sure you let the rest of us know where you're going if you decide to meet him. We worry, you know.

  • @ the whales:

    More the merrier:

    Email me here:


    I need an email address to mail you the invite from blogger.

    [winks slyly at The Spinster knowing it will set tongues a-wagging across the whole bog-wide-web at the thought that The Spinster may *already* have been in touch with The Bobster for all they know as she now has *two* copies of his personal email address.....]: open to anyone else who's interested. Apart fron GWAOTM, obviously.

    p.s. Any good boozers in Brissle, Spin?

    wrod vrecificatoin: tangi.

  • Never fear - as previously discussed, I am never going to meet any bloggers in the flesh. And I have never contacted any.

    Too scarey.

    T'would be difficult with Bob Swipe any how as he's not actually a *real* person. Let's hope not anyhow...

    By Blogger Spinsterella, at 11:28 AM  

  • Oooh Spinny! You go girl! That pic is lovely though isn't it?

    *Stares off into the concrete-edged ether of London view*

  • >> I am never going to meet any bloggers in the flesh.<<

    Now come on, that's not *strictly* true, is it?

    By Blogger patroclus, at 11:58 AM  

  • I would. Very sensual lips.

    By Anonymous emma, at 12:04 PM  

  • YoungBob not really my type (sorry Bob), but I can see what you mean there.

    And Spinny, I believe you've met more than one blogger in your time (not me, obviously, but word gets about).

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:06 PM  

  • Ah, but I can make exceptions for Important People (and lc).

    By Blogger Spinsterella, at 12:17 PM  

  • "he's not actually a *real* person."

    Phew, so those must be imaginary bits falling off the old member then?

    Thank fuck for that.

    Spinny is right, as always. Anyway, it's much more fun like this. I think that the sight The Spinster in the flesh, dripping with bling, a Chippendale beefcake on each arm, horrifyingly killing off my mental image of our feisty heroine painstakingly constructed over all these posts would be too much to bear.

    It's one thing to picture Morrisssey firing off those kegs between his legs up some Italian guttersnipe without losing The Spinny to tawdry reality too....

  • How do you get veinage?

    I'd have to do a Deirdre Barlow to get veinage.

    By Blogger Geoff, at 1:48 PM  

  • to be quite honest, I probably would too

    By Blogger GreatSheElephant, at 2:01 PM  

  • Well, there ya go Bob - a good 90% *would*.

    (or would *have*, anyhow)

    We can stop being nice to you now.

    So, a fat vegan? Whatever next?

    PS Geoff - I don't know how you get veinage. I think it's like rolling your tongue, either you've got it or you don't.

    By Blogger Spinsterella, at 2:34 PM  

  • veinage - spin's more or less right. it's a lot easier if you've got a naturally small frame like me. that means when you do get in shape and put on a bit of weight, veins start popping out every bloody where.

  • "We can stop being nice to you now."

    *that* was *nice*??

    Not vegan - like Mozzer, leather shoes...the shame of it.

    By Blogger Robert A. Swipe, at 5:06 PM  

  • oh hell yes i would.
    unzip it, swipe.

    and smoke a cigar.

    By Blogger First Nations, at 9:01 PM  

  • you can add my name to the *wood* column. theoretically, of course, as i am committed* elsewhere.

    *to a mental institution
