Oh, phooey

by Suw on March 22, 2004

Ok, so The Observer publishes Sarah Champion's denial that she's the behind the Belle de Jour blog. Doesn't really change the basic fact that BdJ isn't worth the paper it's written on, though.

One of my favourite blog-related sites, Technorati has just had a makeover. If you want to know who's linking to whom, Technorati is the place to find out.

27 types of men

by Suw on March 22, 2004

Apparently there are only 27 types of men, ranging from the:

Achilles, a charming but flawed sophisticate named after Homer's hero in the “Iliad” and illustrated in the book by former United States President Bill Clinton.

to the:

Murdoch, named after the Australian media tycoon Rupert, has self-belief and always looks towards the next big deal.

Bollocks to that crap. As far as I'm concerned, all men fit in to this taxonomy:

not available
not interested
able and willing to commit

Of course 'cute' is a very loose term, covering looks, intelligence, sense of humour, mattressability, and all sorts of other attributes which conspire to make someone attractive.

This means that there are, in fact, 32 types of men – more than enough to fill a decent-sized book – but not all are equally likely, for example, a gay man may well be cute, and able and willing to commit, but he's not going to be interested in me unless I have some serious surgery.

Obviously I'm after a cute straight available interested guy who is able and willing to commit. I usually seem to end up with the fuckwits though.

Anyway, nuff of my love life, where's my six figure publishing deal?

I've got a namesake!

by Suw on March 22, 2004

My friend Trav has named his new iBook after me, so may I introduce you to the really quite beautiful Suw. She's far prettier, smarter and faster than I am, the wee minx.

The only other thing that's ever been named after me is a star in the constellation of Corvus, The Crow, which is just below Virgo in case you weren't sure. Previously named 157-453, the heavenly body which can be found at the celestial address of 12hrs 42 min 15.718 sec and Declination of -18 degrees, 50' and 10.90″ Epoch 2000, has since 12 April 01 been known as Suw Charman. To me. And the people who bought it for me.

Everyone else probably calls it George. Or Natasha.

Or 157-453.
