HOW FECKING DEPRESSING WAS THAT?

PussinJimmyChoos Sat 19-Jul-08 21:55:08

What was her reason for contacting them??

Litterbug Sat 19-Jul-08 21:55:54

I'd only have to shout upstairs! grin

What was it about?

morningpaper Sat 19-Jul-08 21:57:29

wait let me find it

it sounded like a good idea for an article but basically ended up with you wanting to reach for the prozac

CaptainKarvol Sat 19-Jul-08 21:58:05

God she was so depressing, self centred... it's not original stuff (has she read Nick Hornby?) - why why why did they publish it?

morningpaper Sat 19-Jul-08 21:58:06

I don't know what it was QUITE so depressing

what do you reckon

morningpaper Sat 19-Jul-08 21:58:45

I wondered that CK

I can imagine that it might be pitched as something funny

But there was nothing redeeming about it

ExterminAitch Sat 19-Jul-08 22:01:56

i reckon it's David Walliams...

ranting Sat 19-Jul-08 22:02:51

It was supposed to be FUNNY? <<slaps forehead>>

Didn't quite come across, did it?

morningpaper Sat 19-Jul-08 22:03:22

I'm not sure WHAT it was supposed to be

It was the sort of thing you'd really want her to tell her therapist

PussinJimmyChoos Sat 19-Jul-08 22:03:51

Have just read through that....er..what exactly is her point?! Weird article...

expatinscotland Sat 19-Jul-08 22:04:35

she remembered all of them? she knew all their surnames? shock

impressive!

ranting Sat 19-Jul-08 22:04:47

She writes like another (former) Guardian columnist who I dare not mentionwink

CaptainKarvol Sat 19-Jul-08 22:05:14

It wasn't funny, that's for sure.

ExterminAitch Sat 19-Jul-08 22:05:55

i gave up when the miss selfridge skirt cheered. seemed to go on for a long time. where was it in the paper?

hasn't tanya gold lost weight or something recently? i'm sure she was in the DM recently, there was a thread.

preggersplayspop Sat 19-Jul-08 22:07:27

I thought it was really bizarre. No wonder not all of the blokes wanted their pictures taken for the article!

itati Sat 19-Jul-08 22:07:42

I couldn't read all of it. I was losing the will to live.

ExterminAitch Sat 19-Jul-08 22:08:39

yep

worth a gander for the photos. i'm not wrong about Walliams, she's a dead ringer.

ThingOne Sat 19-Jul-08 22:11:30

I wondered if she was some sleb or summat that I had passed me by. Couldn't see a reason for the article otherwise.

Hassled Sat 19-Jul-08 22:15:43

And she seemed to have some sort of "stirrings" for a good proportion of them, despite having explained quite what was wrong with them. It was all very wrong and pointless. The only point I could see being made was that she was once an alcoholic and no longer drinks. True of a lot of people.

expat - yes but there were only 15 wink

were they all total losers?
did any of them like her?
did she like any of them?

poor dragging journalism and yes too long

ExterminAitch Sat 19-Jul-08 22:17:31

clearly the reason she met up with them in order to say 'look, i've lost weight'. she's not very good, is she?

southeastastra Sat 19-Jul-08 22:18:25

i always wondered why my bf from ireland never was game on. years later i realised it was because he was catholic

Dottoressa Sat 19-Jul-08 22:18:28

Litterbug - me too!!

expatinscotland Sat 19-Jul-08 22:19:24
