Manly Men vs TV Boys

I went down into the studios today to collect my plinths for the Development Boys. Unfortunately my visit to that oh so magical place of men was ruined by my companions.

I brought an uber gay man and the classic example of a metrosexual from Development down into The Studios this morning. From the moment we entered the lifts to descend to my heaven they started making comments.

Development Boy: Oh I can feel the dirt from here

Metrosexual: You know, I'm so glad I don't work down here. It is just so old school.

Miss M: But boys, THE MEN!

Please note how I referenced them there as "boys", those two are definitely not manly men

Development Boy: I prefer my men with clean fingernails thank you very much


I felt so out of place. Everyone was watching us. It was like they could smell the TV boys from upstairs infiltrating and tainting their wonderful place of work. Everyone was standing around the edges of the studios glaring at us, waiting for us to make a mistake. We were so not in our element.

We made our way down to the Set Builders area, my haven of men with tool belts and these two could not stop making little snide comments.

Metrosexual: I am so going to need a shower after being here

Development Boy: This place just reeks of straight men

Miss M: I KNOW! Isn't it wonderful?!

Development Boy: It isn't right for television

Next time I am so taking a fellow woman down with me.

I'm betting they'd appreciate a man kitting out in a tool belt operating heavy machinery.

I think I might have to go downstairs and apologise for bringing those two down with me.

Yeah, you need to take a woman down there with you... Men are pathetic. They just don't get it do they?

Try again tomorrow. Take a girlfriend. Point out some guys and have a laugh

Oh dear!! You definitely need to take an appreciative woman down with you!

You should give them a bottle of your moisturiser and a cashmere scarf and let them squabble over it for hours...you'll be left in peace to enjoy the manly men.

PS> I have a feeling you're going to "bag" yourself one of them soon x

You either need to take another woman down there or a non-bitchy gay who actually appreciates manly men! :)

LOL - nice excuse to go back down there and look all girly !!

what were you thinking?

gag them next time ;)

KaB said...

Oh gawd...what a bunch of poofs! You should have told them to bugger off back to where they can stick their fingers up their arse & twiddle their thumbs if they weren't so impressed!

Again, they are the reason why you prefer it down below...next time...go on your own...you're far more likely to have a wondering hot, tool-dripping man stumble across your 'lost' loneliness & voila...you'll have a date & a telephone number to take back upstairs!

Aaah, I'm wishing you could take me! Sometimes gay best friends just aren't all that ;-)

The Divine Miss M said...

@Elise - Your plan is masterful, when I'm next heading down I will grab the closest girl I can find. Let's hope she isn't lesbian!

@Blonde - I like your thinking! I hope I manage to bag one ... got my eye on someone at climbing though ;)

@pdx - Too true!

@gem - Me girly? hehehe

@sweets - Hmmm ... do you think I could just do that in general?

@Kab - Good imagination, wonder if it could happen ...

@EM CT - Meh, I joined but I can't work it. Missing some tool bar or something

@lopz - Come visit me at work then! We can go a wandering ;)
