  1. So Much For Subtlety

    So I am not sure if I have got this right.

    She wouldn’t marry a divorced man, but she did f*ck one.

    Who did the decent thing and married her?

    Ooookkaaay. I am sure that is going to work out well.

  2. I suspect Tim is right though. Many men looking to get married are thinking about family, or at least the possibility. Forty something women are not a good bet.
    The 2% percent fertile figure for 42 year olds seems low though. I know a number of women who have conceived around that age. I suspect she was talking to the ‘sales staff’, at a fertility clinic, to get that figure.

  3. Article sub-heading:

    “Cristina Odone, who did just that, reviews a new book that promises to deliver for reluctant singletons.”

    Article suffix:

    “The Dilemmas of Harriet Carew by Cristina Odone (Harper Perennial), which is based on The Daily Telegraph’s Posh but Poor column, is available from Telegraph Books for £6.99 + 99p P&P. Call 0844 871 1515 or go to”

    That’s the first book review I’ve read where the book details at the end are for a different book written by the reviewer!

  4. “And I compiled a list of what Shane Watson dubs the Guaranteed Deal Breakers: sandals and socks, a shaved head, a bicycle, sleeveless pullovers, ankle skimming trousers. ”

    WTF?! Can anyone imagine the comments if a man came up with a pathetically superficial list like that? ‘Kitten heels and opaque tights, highlights, a bicycle, sleeveless dresses, ankle skimming jeans…’ What a stupid cow.
