Hello from the other side

Hello, it’s me. I mean, of course it’s me, it’s my blog, who did you come here for? If the answer is, ‘Guest bloggers, duh,’ then it’s your lucky day! The ever-patient Bogart has written a post, which scared the ever-loving shit out of me. Seriously, I don’t know how anyone agreed to date me…… Continue reading Hello from the other side

Get freaky

Despite my now normal/boring blog/life, I have managed to fit in a few tiny patented Steph Freak Outs™ over the past couple of weeks. After Bogart and I made it Facebook Official (it’s impossible to type those words without feeling like a 12-year-old, by the by), the world went a bit bonkers. Not only did…… Continue reading Get freaky

Seek and ye shall find

I saw some unsolicited advice on a friend’s Facebook post that was all-too-familiar: You’re looking too hard for love.

Well, I would probably have a…… Continue reading Too much too soon

Key to my heart

I have such supportive friends. Listen, I get it and it’s partially my fault. I’ve been on so many bad dates that you’ve come to expect a certain level of shit show. No one has cried (okay, that’s a lie — I cried during the opening scene of The Last of Us, but I’m a sensitive…… Continue reading Key to my heart

Get it, girlfriend

I use a lot of words to describe myself: quirky, weird, occasionally funny, vertically challenged. One I haven’t used in a very long time: girlfriend. It sounds foreign to me, like something that applies to other people but not to me. I roll it around in my mouth, using different inflections and tones, trying to find…… Continue reading Get it, girlfriend

Father knows best

There are times when I feel so unlike my parents it’s hard to fathom how someone like me came from those houses, let alone how we’re related. When I’m the last one at the table, plate half full because I rapid-fire talked my way through dinner while everyone else sat silently, dutifully eating their meals and occasionally…… Continue reading Father knows best
