40 Ways To Be Annoying

#1
The new SW magazine has an article called "40 Ways To Gorgeous". Since I am locked into an ever-more-difficult struggle to be gorgeous (I'm 51), I read it eagerly. Did anyone else bother reading it?

What a load of rubbish. I swear, nearly all the tips were obvious, and/or things I first read in "Jackie" magazine, when I was about twelve. I like number 24, which tells me I can "streamline" my "handbag beauty kit" (?) by leaving some things at home (or in another bag). Gosh, that is GENIUS.

But the first tip is the weakest one of all: It explains that to wash your hair, you should soak it thoroughly in warm water, apply a teaspoon of shampoo, massage the shampoo in with your fingertips and rinse thoroughly.

No sh*t Sherlock. This gem, they state, was provided by "Trichologist and international haircare expert Philip Kingsley".

Way to go Philip...But if I wanted that level of advice, I'd be asking anyone I met, who was over the age of seven, NOT paying for a "Trichologist and international haircare expert" to tell me it in a magazine.

Maybe I'm getting old and jaded, but I hate it when magazines include mindless articles of non-information, just to fill up space.

Hahahaha! I'm not sure...We should ask "Trichologist and international haircare expert Philip Kingsley". He'll know.

Now come on...be reasonable. There might be women out there who have never washed their own hair. The queen, perhaps. Or some footballer's wife who's always gone to the salon to have her hair done and never washed her own hair.

People like that might well appreciate being told how to wash their hair by a trichologist!

oh good Lord. To be honest i've got me mag but just read the recipes and ignored the articles.

I'd really love the chance to fill the pages of SW magazine with meaningful fluff... rather than teaching people to suck eggs (purse lips, raise egg to mouth, DO NOT BLOW!) HINT HINT!

Good point, but then are these people likely to be reading SW magazine when they have personal trainers and nutrionists!!

This sounds as though you are quite happy with the one you already have! :D

I hadn't thought about men reading the magazine. Blimey, you must be bored with most of it. Mind you, judging by the current content, they'd probably cater for you (if they tried) by explaining that football is a game where people kick a ball around, on a pitch.
