I love glasses with stupid frames, and have several different pairs, but apparently its okay and not too hipster, because my eyesight is truly terrible. In fact the whole 'slagging off hipster glasses' thing kind of pisses me off; like, yeah, alright, some people are cooler than you and you know it, and you know they know it, but spare a thought for those of us whose first, second, third, and, oh, fourth pairs of glasses were HIDEOUS; whose adolescence was BLIGHTED by facial accoutrements most foul, because glasses were so uncool it was practically inconceivable that any could be built that weren't already apologising for their own shitness, and like practically wearing a badge saying "I'm counting down the SECONDS til laser eye surgery becomes both affordable and safe!", which since my whole adolescent demeanor already tended towards the 'I'm so rubbish & I know it, SORRY, let me die in this corner' look, didn't help matters one bit. But now! Ah, joy! The cool kids want to look like they, too, misspent their youth reading Jean Ure in the dark, and it is possible to buy cool glasses! They exist! They have been designed, built and produced! What have you done to bring such joy to loser teens everywhere? Well, what?
I'm told I would be rubbish at observational stand-up comedy, because many of my experiences ... differ - from those of the mainstream. I mean, the really minor stuff that is the bread & butter of observational stand up, not the big serious stuff (I'm acknowledging I'm that my life has followed a classic middle class tradjectory, in loadsa ways, and this whole 'reading the Guardian & buying maldon sea salt' lark does kinda make me a bit if a cunt) - like, do you love marmite so much you eat it out of the jar with a spoon? Until your tongue hurts? If so, we should talk. That was the observation ("don't you hate it when .. ") that earned me the 'would be rubbish at observational comedy' tag.
Seriously, though. Stuff about me? Like, how I'm sort of doing a Masters, but maybe not really at the moment, and I'm leftwing and feminist and into live music (duh), and I live with two lovely guys in the East End, which has a fascinating amount of sweet shops and fish shops - East Enders love whelks and humbugs, it seems. I'm literally drawing a blank apart from that.
