What is it about these morons that makes them feel it's their god-given right to shout rubbish that is at best, annoying, and often deeply offensive crap at any passing female. In some dim recess of their CO poisoned little minds they think we somehow find "Wahaay! get yer tits out" flattering, rather than considering it verbal abuse.

The phenomenon seems to extend to groups of 17 year olds driving along with their baseball caps on backwards and the stereo cranked up to max. Boys, it's still your mum's Saxo and you really can't look at all cool in it.

Roll on winter.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

  Posted:Dress scruffy. Then they ignore you. Works every time! Males in vehicles are one of the main reasons that I hate skirts.

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

LOL! I nearly spat my sausage butty all over my PC when I read that.

boing...boing...When the naive man admits his naivete, he is no longer naive.Thus, all people are regarded by society as either ignorant or a liar.Wonders never cease, as long as you never cease to wonder.

  Posted:I read in Metro that White Van Man is becoming Shiny Silver Van Man now, the breed is slowly evolving I was in regents park last week and was wearing a backless ('cept for a couple of strings) top, a jogger running behind me actually swivelled to turn around and gawp V. rude

Summer in London - I noticed as soon as the sun started to shine - men around our neighbourhood suddenly started checking people out. I was coming home from work one day at the beginning of summer and I was convinced my dress was stuck in my knickers or some other social faux pas. I wasn't different, the dress I had worn dozens of times, but a few rays of sunshine and suddenly everybody is in the mood for lovin!

I love observing others but I feel uncomfortable when I know I am at the end of someone elses observations. On the upside, I have had some laughs talking to strangers on the street / tube, I've talked to more strangers this summer than over the past year! People in general are far more friendly when its sunny!

As for 'Wayhaaay' comments - only thing is to ignore them. When I worked in Roppongi (Tokyo's sleazy foreigner district) I used to wear combats and t-shirts as I hated being mistaken for a hostess if I did make an effort to look nice! But screw that, as long as you are dressing for you, who gives a damn!

Come faeries, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.
