I didn't buy a skirt today because ...

it made my nose look big.

To be fair, it wasn't the skirt that made it look big; it is big. It's just that normally I don't have to look at it. But faced with M&S's view-everything-at-once-even-if-you-don't-want-to-see-it mirrors it was my nose that stole the show.

A store like M&S, that caters for the more mature woman, should know better. Fewer mirrors and dimmer lighting would make for more sales I'm sure.

It put me off everything . I came home in a sulk.

But not before I'd invited a woman I'd never met before to come to Italy with me to find me an outfit for the wedding, which happens to be on her birthday. It seemed a good idea at the time ...

Must be killing Wales, Liz, that they can't take on England now. :)

I once saw a woman with a conk like an eagle's beak get her hair cut "professionally" on the clothes show (remember that crock of shit?).... anyway they cut it so fucking short she really did look like a bald eagle after that and in my opinion should have sued... but as they say, there's no accounting for fashion, and most certainly no accounting for bad taste!

ps I've seen you on youtube and your nose looked quite unremarkable in fact I don't even remember what it looked like so don't be so para you silly cow!

This is meant to cheer you up not insult so I do apologize if cow was offensive to you or George.

Oh it is, James!

Not offended at all, gledwood! I tried to visit your blog and it said it might be dangerous!

yeah I know

if it still does that Gledwood Vol 3 will have to appear

I've got in via the internet caff and nothing untoward happened and my own antivirus said nothing dodgy and let me straight in (after I got my computer fixed this afternoon)....

I've tried to find out what's this malware distributer but honestly have put so very much stuff up I haven't a clue what they're talking about....

The ideal changing room would of course have distorting mirrors that made you look about 10% thinner. That would really boost the sales figures.
