She was kinda sexy but didn't shave her legs. You'd have liked her creaky.
was her mum a hippy/feminist? was she brought up in a commune did she pass on the non shaving?
I know not where she was raised, only that it may have been in or near Portsmouth. Possibly.
Did she pass on the non-shaving? Not to me. She passed me a tape copy of the Jeremy Enigk solo album on one side and a Rachels album on the other side though.

Rule by minging vegetables.
It literally means rule by the "socios," people who have a social relationship with each other - as opposed to democracy: rule by the "demos," the general mass of people.
Ward later expanded on the concept in his books Dynamic Sociology (1883) and The Psychic Factors of Civilization (1892). Ward, although rarely studied today, was very influential in his time and had a worldwide reputation as a groundbreaking sociologist. He believed that a highly educated public was essential if a country was to be governed effectively, and he foresaw a time when the emotional and partisan nature of present day politics would yield to a much more effective, dispassionate and scientifically-based discussion of issues and problems. Democracy would thus eventually evolve into a more advanced form of government, sociocracy.
I'd just settle for proportional representation
can we add this to the list of sexism in indie? :P
Government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens.
Or basically, GayGuevara for PM.
