Fucking hell. Charismatic is not a noun*. Fucking Guardian.
*not in the way meant here.
As if creative wasn't bad enough. Ugh.
'Nothing I say can go viral'.
is written by Zoe Williams?
imagine Zoe Williams turning adjectives into nouns, forever.
well, she's confident
Still think she's technically a decent writer so that point holds true. She's just a complete prat. A self-important prat at that.
marckee never did get back to me with those long-form articles which are supposedly good y'know.
Sorry, was just wondering when I'd been boring on about Zoe Williams on here before. I knew I had, was trying to find it. Anyway...
... seems as well as her previous columns (politics/current affairs/parenting/etc.), she now also does interviews, TV reviews, car reviews, Food & Drink articles, and something truly awful-sounding by the name of Zoe Williams's Saturday Sketch. Eek. Truly a jack of all trades.
She's evidently in thrall to the sound of her own voice so none of that surprises me.
Dunno if you follow her on twitter but her parenting tweets somehow conspire to be worse than her parenting articles.
Although of course now you've mentioned it I've gone straight to her twitter and found this: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/restaurants/11477764/Pachamama-London-W1-restaurant-review.html
Anyway you might be seeing a bit more of her pal - she's a high-profile drum-banger for The Greens at the moment I'm afraid...
really shit the bed here mate
in 'repeating stories' shocker.
if you get asked the same questions all the time, eventually you're going to start scripting your answers. thee;s only so many ways you can say something.
although I suppose you could entertain yourself by being more creative with your answers. Must get boring though.
Why didn't she ask him some more random/interesting questions that he;s never been asked before? Like:
How many loaves of bread do you buy at once?
How many doors are there in your house?
How many kitchens do you have?
we should be grateful. possibly.
which ones would blow the roof off?
not entirely unexpected (he's a fucking cunt)
fairly rehearsed anecdotes they can trot out.
Things like this are always weird, two people with no affection for each other trying to pretend like there's any point to what they're doing and failing.
I refuse to believe this.
Not the finest sentence I've written, admittedly
sure, I could have ignored her daily droneathon about her little C (just use the twats name, no fucker gives a shit) entirely lacking in any sort of self-awareness about how horrendously middle class 1st world problems she was, but I just couldn't. And there was that other one, Tim Dowling, writing about his problems going on skiing holidays with his kids. Christ, that paper
...but it's turned into a fantastic excuse for giving Zoe Williams a shinning instead. How the tables turn *tents fingers*
