La Belle et La Bête #2: The Hooker With The Big Old Heart

I'm really rather touched. I just wandered over to Belle de Jour to see what she's up to, and there in her latest post is a little message to me. She mentions a few things that are going on in her life at the moment, and rates them as the good, the bad and the ugly. And I'll be damned if I'm not in there at number three:


The ugly: Actually, darlings, everything is beautiful. Including you. Especially you. Have you lost weight?


That's so sweet. It's made me feel all warm. Awww. Of course a link would have been even better, but still, I bet she's wonderful in bed. I wonder if I should start seeing a prostitute. I think perhaps I should. I mean, I've thought of it before, obviously. But never really seriously. And I'm not sure why. All I'd have to is find a nice, intelligent, compassionate one - like Belle (who now has the added bonus of being embodied by the delightfully goblinesque Billie Piper in my mind), and I'd be away. In fact, as soon as I'm back from Istanbul, I think it's time to do some research.

Thanks, Belle!

Hey again,
Are you sure it is aimed at you? very cool if it is though.

I'm confused... I thought your love-search/hunt, was exactly that- not a sex hunt. Surely getting involved with a prostitute can only cause problems, its most likely she wont fall in love because that is her job & you may end up getting hurt if you get attached, and in the end - when you do find someone you have to have that old "I used to regularly shag a prosititute" conversation....

But if its sex you are after - go for it. xxx

Just found your blog through Todger Talk. Weird since I'm a girl and that thing is directed towards men. Anyway, fat or thin, cigarette or not, prostitutes or honestly acquired birds, I think your writing is brilliant and your perspective is absolutely attractive. Which equals you are attractive!

Hey there

Arrived here after accidentally clicking on your site-link at Cook'd and Bomb'd.

All very interesting. If nothing else you've brought Jon Gaunt to my attention, so thanks for that.

Hope you continue to hang around for a chat with the Verbwhores. We're not short of intelligent types, but it never hurts to add one more to the mix. It's not a bad place, really.

Cheers

Hey, as above I also found your blog through Todger Talk, and i'm sure your counter has picked up on another reader lol.

It makes me laugh! I've started writting a journal/interesting things I see or think about book type thing. I am way too insecure to let the public read my stuff but I suppose as writer you have had to over come that lol....anyhoo just wanted to tell you to keep up the good work mate :)

I knew it! Surely there had to be something worth reading out there in Blogland. And now I've found it. I did read the one track mind girl for a while, but then everyone told her she was a good writer, so she started writing like someone trying to be a writer, which was tiresome. I hope that doesn't happen to you, when you inevitably reach a wider audience and start to receive endless fawning emails (er, like this one) harping on about what a fab fellow you must be. Anyway, your blog isn't quite perfect. It could be improved upon enormously if you'd only insert a space after your full stops. Ideally, two spaces. Try it, you'll thank me for it.

More power to your elbow(s).

You know, I reckon with that whole self-effacing thing going on, you're not going to need to shell out for whores - we girls are suckers for that stuff. Trust me.

Hi K. Yeah, you’re right, I am looking for love. However, a man gets lonely, you know? And I must say I like the idea of meeting a prostitute, of getting to know her and liking her, of her liking me and taking pleasure from giving me pleasure. And eventually perhaps, falling in love with me. Actually, no, I am being silly. If I did see a prostitute, it would have nothing to do with love, it would have everything to do with relief, temporary relief from the crushing boredom of physical loneliness.

Hey, EasyEyes. Spaces, you say? I do leave a space between sentences. Never two though. That’s barbaric.

Everybody else, thank you so much. Your comments really mean the world to me.
