Shame Threshold

Oh dear.  In a world gone mad, tomorrow I am going to have my picture taken for an article in the Liverpool Echo about this very blog* - yes this one, dear reader, the one you hold in your sweaty little hands (if you are using a laptop anyway).  

And I am absolutely bleeding petrified.  Have I mentioned my crippling shyness before, readers? Well, I am now.  I am such a social vacuum, I'm practically a black hole.  I run from people; I hide from social circumstances; I don't even like answering the phone.  So obviously I'm a complete natural for an appearance in a major metropolitan newspaper.  Right now - and even with a bottle of wine inside me - I cannot understand what's going on that has lead me to this.  If I didn't also have an enormous guilt threshold, I would run and run and run.  As it is, be warned; it looks like, sometime over Christmas, you may see my shamefaced grimace in your local paper**...

*assuming that there's not a horrible disaster in Liverpool that is far more important and bumps me.***

**assuming you are reading this in the Liverpool area.

***obviously I don't want there to be a hideous terrorist incident, even if it will mean I don't have to have my photo taken.****

****no really.

It actually wasn't too bad; it mainly involved me loitering in front of Lime Street while a man flashed at me. I'd like to say it was the first time that's happened.

Saw the piece in the Echo - loved the pic...!

Blimey, a full page article and they got a quote from Merseyrail boss-man Rudi Boersma too! I think you can now officially claim to be a page 3 stunner.

Damn you Hampton! I was going to use Page Three Stunnah for the title for my latest post, but you've gone and stolen my thunder!

It was only afterwards that The Bf pointed out that my duffel coat in the photo could easily have been misconstrued as an anorak. AFTERWARDS, you note. Git.
