What It’s Like To Be A Girl With A Best Friend Who Is A Boy

Of the many things I lost in the BF wipe on Monday was this ode to my best friend, who I refer to as Lad Boy or LB as you’ve probably seen on this website. I sent it to him after writing it and his first response was, ‘Where did you get all those pictures?’ Cheers, mate. Love you too! Anyway, of all the people who rushed to console me and find out what happened, he was certainly one of them and listened patiently while I ranted on the phone for an hour, despite not caring even a little bit about One Direction. He is actually the only friend I have who ever agreed to watch One Direction live with me as they were playing at a festival we went to. Although his official critique was, ‘This is a load of poo,’ he still stood there with me and watched the entire thing. He said that he liked ‘the one wearing that thing’ which was Liam, and did not judge me for knowing all the words. Anyway, he’s a great friend and although he’s forgotten how to edit this website and left me to do a crash course in web design (he [...] There's more...

Sunday Funday

I made the short trip from the underground towards The Regent in Balham (pre-closure for renovation), smiling smugly as I waited for my phone to get service again. I was early, not even on time, early, which is a bloody miracle if you ask any of my friends. My phone buzzed to life, notifications indicating I had service once more. Here Cal had already texted me two minutes earlier. “SON OF A BIT-” I began to mutter aggressively as I pulled the door to the pub open, scanning the room for him. “How the fuck did he-” I continued to swear to myself as I walked to the back, trying to find him in the crowd. Damnit! I punched into my phone, hitting ‘send’ especially hard. I looked around again before sending off Where? Regent flashed on the screen almost immediately. I frowned, looking around. Surely he could see me standing in the middle of the pub like an absolutely muppet, turning around in circles. Outside I was still frowning as I pushed the pub door open. ‘What?! How were you here before me?!’ he said, equally enraged that he hadn’t won this unspoken battle of who would show up first. ‘Ha!’ I [...] There's more...

SAO and Lad Boy Q&A: Sesh 4

Would you let LB blog about the girls he sees or is he only allowed to have a part in the Q & A part? SAO: I would let him do whatever his little heart desires. LB: I had an ex-girlfriend who called my penis “heart”. SAO: Really? LB: No. LB, why did you cheat on your ex-girlfriend who was “the girl of your dreams”? Was it alcohol induced or were you fully aware of what you were doing? LB: Mix infatuation with emotional retardation and you’ve got the reason. Out of your friends, how many of them do you know have cheated on someone? LB: All of them. And yes, that’s girls included. SAO: Most of them. I’m not convinced that people are meant to be monogamous. In a perfect world or relationship, sure. But I don’t think you should have all your eggs in one basket, so whether it’s physical or emotional cheating, I think it just happens. SAO, will you be blogging about your stories with the boys in your life as well as the Q&A seshes with Lad Boy? SAO: I will be, yes. But the Q&A is more fun. LB: Any interaction with boys is [...] There's more...

SAO and Lad Boy Q&A: Sesh 3

What are your views on interracial dating? Is this something you’ve done before? Would you try it sometime in the future? Have you ever dated someone from a different race. [Clarified in a later question to be someone from a different ethnic or cultural background]. SAO: Of course I’ve dated someone from a different cultural background. Last week I went out with someone who lives in Shoreditch. LB: You’re such a dick. Did he give you his Gameboy necklace? SAO: All joking aside, it’s a bit of a ridiculous question. Everyone is from a different cultural background/upbringing to a certain extent. I’ve dated many different nationalities as seen in my “Around the World” blog post series. So, yes I am open to dating people outside of the homogenous species of the Kings Road. #sure LB: I get what you’re talking about…that’s a lie, I don’t get what you’re talking about at all. You’re not that fussy to stick to the KR crew. SAO: Truth. I’m an equal opportunist. LB: That you are. SAO: Just yesterday I slept with a French dude. LB: What else would you do on the Sabbath. SAO: What wouldn’t I do on the Sabbath? LB: Truth. [...] There's more...

SAO and Lad Boy Q&A: Sesh 2

LB while you were at uni did you ever hear anything about the blog? If so what did you think about it? LB: I didn’t hear a thing about it whilst I was there. If I had my reaction probably would have been, “SAO, you should read this blog, it’s hilarious and sounds uncannily like us.” SAO: You’re so pretty … but so dumb. LB: It says more about my opinion of your writing skills. SAO: What type of girls do you think Lad Boy goes for? Would you say he has a definite type? and Did you get on with any of them? SAO: His type is someone who is breathing. LB: No, no, that’s your type. If you’re a petite brunette, call me : ) SAO: I feel like you’ve dated more blondes. LB: Yeah … blondes for fun. The last girlfriend was naturally a brunette. SAO: Ah. LAD BOY: Would you say you’re a relationship type of guy or do you prefer just dating? LB: I hate it – dating sucks. Going out to dinner and getting quizzed about my marriageability by a random. No thanks. SAO: I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that Lad Boy [...] There's more...

SAO and Lad Boy Q&A: Sesh 1

Lad Boy, what is the best thing about SAO? And SAO vice versa, what is Lad Boy’s best quality? And also your worst qualities? LB:  SAO is hilarious. the end. SAO: Definitely his looks. He’s pretty shallow otherwise and morally bankrupt. LB: Fuck you, I’m not. SAO: You are a bit though. Joking, he is described by all of our friends as “the most considerate person” we know. His worst quality is that he can be a total dick when he’s drunk. Although that’s quite hilarious usually. LB: Ugh. SAO’s worst … Ridiculously messy and can’t cook for shit. SAO: I can cook! LB: Yeah, if it’s off the reduced aisle. SAO: Lies.   How many people have you slept with Lad Boy? And did you ever think SAO would have such a colourful love life? LB: I’m sure there are still things that SAO hasn’t told me, but she tells me most things … What sucks for you guys is I get all the details.  As for the girls. I’m no rock star, but it’s surprising what not having a girlfriend does to your numbers. SAO: I do tell him everything. So he was well aware of my “colourful [...] There's more...
