Things I have been called

I do have a whole list of things I want to blog about, but as I hadn’t written anything in a while I thought I would share with you some of the things that people seem fit to call me or yell after me when I go out.

  • It’s not halloween – I’m guessing several of my friends have had that one
  • Harry Potter – both when wearing a cloak (ok I understand that one) and my ankle length black leather trench coat, which leads me onto;
  • The Matrix
  • Cowboy/cowgirl, random comments along these lines
  • Are you a man or a woman? – Yes people really have asked me that! Personally I love the idea of androgeny and blurring the gender lines but please, I don’t appreciate complete strangers asking me that
  • I thought you were a ghost! – My favourite and probably needs some explanation, I had just stepped off a sixteenth century bridge in a quite village wearing a wide brimmed hat and a long coat, I think that one’s understanable and she did appologise
  • Vampires! – yes that’s why I’m out in the middle of the day
  • Van Helsing – again I think it’s the hat and coat
  • Indiana Jones
  • Oh and Crocodile Dundee

Think that’s it, though I will have to find you a picture of the outfit that causes so much controversy for those of you that haven’t seen it

    I’ve had most of these. Here are some of my responses.

    It’s not Halloween: No, I know. At Halloween I dress like you.

    The matrix: you do understand the concept of a fictional construct don’t you? Oh I’m sorry were there too many polysyllabic words in there for you?

    Cowboy/cowgirl: wrong continent, if you’re going to mock at least get your geography right.

    Are you a man or a woman: it’ll cost you at least a drink to find out.

    I thought you were a ghost/had no idea you were there: sorry, it happens. (That one’s not funny I know but I live on a boat ie dark towpaths and wear a lot of black so I’m bored of it now.)

    Vampire: Are you offering? Or occasionally yes thank-you. (Bloody Twilight.)

    I have also had:

    Lara Croft: I tend to take this one as a compliment, and offer an enigmatic smile though I suspect it’s just the sunglasses.

    And when I lived in Marylebone…

    Camden’s that way: yes, I know. They let us out once a week.

    Genuine answers 🙂 I don’t get beaten up as often as you’d think.
