Other spinster-types

Look everybody, there's a male version of me out there...

We have so much in common:

- He has well-meaning but misguided friends trying to help - I have well-meaning but misguided friends who know fucking better than to suggest I sell myself.

- He hates dogs - I hate dogs.

- He tucks his trousers into his socks regularly - I tucked my trousers into my socks once in Tasmania when I saw a snake.

- He lives in Leeds - I've been to Leeds once.


There ya go. Nice post anyhow, once you get past the idiosyncratic spelling.

Inspired, I shall be composing myself a lonely hearts ad forthwith.*

(Cheers to
the Murph for sending me that way.)

*Not for real or anything...


  • I bring them mutual joy and happiness... and they hate me?!

  • That Gary sounds great!
    You must read the post that describes his talents as a hooverer and cleaner.

    All that and a sense of humour too!

  • Cheers very much for that. Murph, a tin of Baker's on its way to you.

    I once saw a snake in Canada and ran over it with my bike. Not as a consequence of seeing it, things just happened in that order.

  • Dr. Chivago???
    How can anyone not spell that?
    File under 'unsuitable' spins.

  • Realdoc - I once went out with someone who thought there was a word "speack".

    He had, ahem, other charms.

  • There's an argument that says you can spell 'Chivago' any way you like, as long as it preserves the intended pronunciation, because of it being originally in Cyrillic script.

    I learned in Finland that 'Pasternak' means 'parsnip'.

    Dr Chivago, by Boris Parsnip.

    Bit of a vegetable garden theme going on there.

  • Surely it would be Dr Chicory, by Boris Parsnip?

    Or Dr Celeriac?

  • I think you'll find that Boris Parsnip is actually the tousle haired lovable scamp of a Tory MP for Twickenham.

  • I just had spicy pasternak soup for tea.

    By Blogger realdoc, at 8:31 PM  

  • God, as if it's not bad enough that i'm always confused by other blogs, what with their discussions about high literature and web 2 - now I'm bewildered by my own comments-stream?


    I'm off to lower the tone elsewhere...

    (Actually, I'm off on a Hen Do. God help us all.)

    By Blogger Spinsterella, at 6:36 AM  

  • Boris Parsnip is actually the MP for Henley. Twickenham's MP is, I believe, Vincent Celery.

    By Blogger Billy, at 1:42 PM  

  • I can't bear roast pasternak - or anything pasternak for that matter - even the smell of pasternak makes me nauseous.

    By Blogger rockmother, at 9:32 AM  

  • Which is better - pasternak milk or UHT?
