Boys trying to understand the passive aggressive behaviour of girls via a text message / June, 2013 / Minolta XG1, Neopan 1600
No matter how hard we try, we’re not really supposed to understand each other.
My first KISS & TELL with Lady Skollie show on Assembly Radio is this Wednesday, 16 April 2014 6pm - 7pm
Please give me a call during the Dear Aunty Moaner segment for my opinion on your sex / love / relationship problem. It’s an anonymous and direct Skype line and if you’re nice I might even give you a Darth Vader voice filter. Only if you ask real nice : +27 21 813 6265
Expect sweaty palms, sticky fingers, hot breath, wet lips and all those other things. Oh and of course me rambling on and on and on about myself.

Eventually we all start pairing off. Whether it be in twos, threes or more.

Growing up Frasier was my ultimate favourite. Imagine being one of those people who love hearing themselves speak (me) and having a radio show to do so.
Very soon I’ll be sharing my ideals on love, relationships and most importantly sex on my own little show called KISS & TELL with Lady Skollie
Just an hour to play you some saucy tunes, answer your manky sex questions and perhaps help someone understand their own relationship status a bit better.
This is Laura and I’m listening.

Dodge them best you can. Or just close your eyes and take one to the chest. Don’t know which fate is worse.

“When she is older she will see in these resemblances a regrettable uniformity among individuals. They all stop at the same spots to kiss, have the same tastes in clothing, flatter a woman with the same metaphor. And a tedious monotony among events, they are all just an endless repetition of the same one; but in her adolescence she welcomes these coincidences as miraculous and she is avid to decipher their meanings.”
- Milan Kundera, Ignorance

My neighbors hate me. No matter what I do. No matter where I live.

Sometimes I bemoan the struggling artist status, forgetting that we have comrades and supporters in the struggling musician sector.
"I paint watercolours and my sister is a classical singer."
"Yeah … but like, what do you DO?"
