I am now a fashion writer.

Look here (I am right down the bottom, but this is good in fashion, i.e. shoes).


UPDATE: every time I look, I spot another spelling mistake DEAR GOD MY EYES.

UPDATE 2: so far I have spotted five.

Would you take fashion advice from a man with a stuffed toy on his shoulder and a shelf of roleplaying games clearly visible just behind him? Can you see the scar on my nose by the way? It's a cool scar, and one day I'll tell you all how I came by it. It is quite some tale, I can tell you, dealing as it does with both destiny and slapstick. But that's for another time....

*screen goes wibbly*

(I'll come back to this later - sorry about all the spelling mistake Maus, I have single-handedly ruined your oh-so promising fashion pdf thing)

UPDATE 3: looking at that photo again, is my left eye slightly higher up than my right eye? I think my left eye is slightly higher up than my right eye. I do tend to veer off to the right when I walk. Hmm.

UPDATE 4: spelling and 'the' all sorted now, thanks MoE.

'sussuration'? Bloody 'ell, no wonder they put you at the bottom.

ooooo

I think it was the weight of all the clanging spelling mistakes dragging it down

I didn't notice any spelling mistakes, I just noticed that you look like you should be in the Chili Peppers. Minus the kitten.

1. I liked it and I've subscribed.

2. I used to have an irrational phobia of the name Cuddy loosely caused by a shite Irish club singer called Joe Cuddy. Watching House always reminds me of this.

3. John Cusack looks cool nearly always. I have recently heard he is an arse. This has upset me. Why, I do not know.

4. I think Lucy Thingy is right to automatically respect women with shorter hair. My hair is long.

5. I entered the tea competition.

6. How sad am I?

7. Very.

Hey, it's a good competition! But I would say that.

Thanks for what you wrote, James. It's great. I didn't read closely for spelling mistakes I'm afraid, so I take full responsibility for those (subbing's such a busman's holiday but I should at least be able to do it by now)...

I'll sort it out by the end of the week though - just wanted to get something online soon.

Billy said...

I'd have been more impressed if you'd had a shelf of roleplaying games on your shoulder.

Good fashion advice though, I intend to take it to heart.

By coincidence I watched John Cusack in GPB last night. So to be cool all we have to do is wear a suit, shirt and tie in exactly the same colour. Black. And look like John Cusack.

Shucks I was hoping on some more medical themed fashion advice along the lines of the white coat swinging.
I should think a tricorne hat will even up your eyeline if you wear it at a jaunty angle.

kaiki said...

as someone who studied fashion journalism in the briefest capacity possible – any quicker and it would have been ‘looking into the windows of topshop on my way past’ – i can assure you the return of the tricorne hat is not only due, but imminent, like some terrible, triple-pronged kraken – in nine months we’ll all be walking around like knightsbridge highwaymen. i thought you looked very handsome in the photograph, james, don’t worry about the eyes, you’re hardly marty feldman.

I am going to buy some cords.

Valerie said...

That's hilarious, James. Of course, the reason you're at the bottom is not the weight of the spelling errors, it's the weights on your cape. You didn't take your own advice and use small ones, clearly. Also, the cat is clearly made of lead (or maybe he's hiding scuba diving weights in his beard).

Sal said...

Can I clear something up? Is it The Green Wing, or Green Wing. They wrote The Green Wing, and, quite frankly, that pisses me off.

james henry said...

Yes, there's no 'The', although people seem to like putting it in. I sure Maus will remove the superfluous definite article in mausofelliot V2 lest she incur THE WRATH OF A MILLION GREEN WING FANS.

I bet she's wishing she'd never asked me to write something now. Sorry mausofelliot.

leila said...

Sorry for pissing everyone off. The devil truly is in the detail.

For example, Maus of Elliott has two 't's at the end.

james henry said...

D'you know, I wondered that, as I started typing, then I thought 'shall I check?' and then I thought 'nah, I've started now'.

Which is symptomatic of my attitude as a whole, I think.

you are not a fashion writer.

james henry said...

Yes I am.

Fraudulent Little Tart said...

Didn't notice the spelling mistakes as I was too pre-occupied with The Green Wing down the left hand side.

Was sent this today and thought of you instantly, well that's not strictly true, I've only just thought of you and I was sent it at 9am.

Now lets see if I can make this link thing work . . . .

Bugger, it didn't work - sorry!

It'll have to be copy and paste.

Where do you stand on the flippers issue?

JUNE said...

Yeah, I think your eyes are wonky.

llewtrah said...

So, what's the word on tank tops and tan slacks these days?

Tne Billy said...

I like extra definite articles.

Billy said...

Oops that was me above. Ruining a perfectly good joke.

james henry said...

I think this comments thread is crused.

We'll have to start calling you Isaiah. One Isaiah than the other? The spirtit of Music Hall lives.

patroclus said...

All spelling now correct apart from Grosse Pointe Blank, which has an 'e' at the end of 'Pointe'.

It's OK, I really annoy myself too.

patroclus said...

Oh, and 'toweling', which should be 'towelling'.

Why am I doing this, why?

leila said...

please stop

Imo said...

What tea competition? Obviously I've scrolled down so fast to get to James' bit my lightening speed reading technics have let me down.
